Dog owners

Dogs welcome

Your four legged friends are welcome at Standen.

You can explore acres of woodland on the wider estate and follow paths around the formal gardens.  Please keep your dog on a short lead at all times and clear up after them.

Only assistance dogs are allowed in the house.

For hygiene reasons, dogs are not allowed in the Kitchen Garden.

If you are planning to leave your four legged friend in the car at any stage during your visit, please be aware our car park offers very limited shade.
There are many benches in the garden where you can wait with your friend whilst other members of your party visit the house.

Woodland walks

Enjoy a longer walk on our wider estate including ancient bluebell woods and meadowland which can be enjoyed all year round. Dogs are welcome on a lead. Please be aware of livestock in neighbouring fields at certain times of the year.


After a revitalising walk in our grounds and woodland, stop off at the Barn café for some tasty treats.
Dogs are welcome in the outside seating area and water bowls are available here and at Visitor Reception.
