Skippy takes a well earned rest in front of the house

There are 400 acres of parkland to explore here. We'd love to welcome you and your four-legged friends. After leaving reception take the left path through the gate and follow the dog-markers into the open parkland. Explore the parkland with your dog, but please not the house, formal garden or the children's natural adventure area.

Dog friendly routes

There are two circular walks here for you to choose from, you can download the routes below:

  • The Long Walk (yellow way-markers) is 2.5 miles and about 60 minutes
  • Wix Wood Walk (blue way-markers) is 1 mile and about 30 minutes

  • There are two poop-scoop bins close to reception and a third just outside the cobbled courtyard
