Dogs at Belton

Where can I walk my dog?


Belton has over 1300 acres of parkland where dogs on leads are welcome and also in the courtyard areas. There is a doggie bin by the visitor car park and water bowls in the stable yard .

We know not everyone loves dogs though so the gardens and children's outdoor adventure playground are dog-free areas.
