Bring your furry pal for a walk in the woods this winter

A big hello to our furry pals

Bring your dog along on your visit to Quarry Bank for some fantastic walks! Styal estate contains nearly 400 acres of ravine woodland and pasture for them to explore.

You are also welcome to take your dog for a walk in the garden on their lead of course. After your walk, buy a hot drink for yourself and a dog biscuit for your best pal.

A day in the life of Bracken

Bracken welcoming visitors to the garden

Bracken loves to come to Quarry Bank to help his owner Pam in her role as a welcome assistant. Some days you can find him in the garden helping our little visitors with their welcome packs or working hard to fundraise for the glasshouse and Quarry Bank Project.

On other days he is waving the National Trust flag and helping Pam to get more of you to join as members. When he isn't working, you can find him exploring the southern and northern woods. He really does love spending time at Quarry Bank.

Bracken's top things to do:

  • Make new pals

    Meeting other dogs and their owners - Bracken loves making new friends

  • Walkies

    Get your human to take you to the larch woods near the Ox-bow lake - it's Bracken's favourite pla...

  • See wildlife

    Try to spot some of those funny looking birds called herons along the banks of the River Bollin

  • Chomp

    Bracken loves eating the dog biscuits baked daily at the café

Bracken's handy tips

  • Be careful when walking by the River Bollin - the current can be very strong.
  • During nesting season (Feb-June) keep an eye out for ground-nesting birds across the estate.
  • Remember to bring a lead to have a walk round the garden.
