Dog walking at Bateman's

Batemans Ellie enjoying picnic

Just as Kipling loved his dogs, we do too and they're more than welcome to come and explore the estate at Bateman's. There are plenty of walks out on our estate for you to enjoy with your canine companion.

Welcome four-legged friends

We are pleased to welcome dogs and their owners to the Bateman's estate and have a few Doggy Do’s and Don’ts that we ask you to abide by. We want all our visitors to have a great walk out there including our four-legged friends.

Please remember to bring dog bags with you. Dog bins are located by the Natural Play Area, the Mill and out on the lane, which is at the beginning of the estate walks.

Watch out for wildlife

We have a number of free range chickens who roam around the Wild Garden and Mill area and help us to spread the flower seeds throughout this area to provide a colourful display of wildflowers during the spring and summer.

Our chickens are a valuable part of the eco system here at Bateman's and we appreciate your co-operation in helping to keep them safe
