Dogs at Berrington

Get your walking shoes on, bring the dog and come and enjoy some of our wonderful walks.

Way-marked walks

On any visit to Berrington a walk around some of the 250 acres of  'Capability' Brown parkland and woods is a must. We have way-marked walks of different lengths which lead to the most beautiful lake and some through the woods too.  For the two legged amongst us we have walk notes too which explain some of Brown's original vision for the landscape as you walk.

Your dogs are welcome in all areas of the parkland, courtyard and most of the gardens. The only places your four legged friend can't go is into the buildings, children's play area and the vegetable patch in the walled garden, where we produce seasonal fruit and vegetables for consumption in the tea-room. We also ask that dogs are kept on leads for the convenience of other visitors and the livestock.

'Capability' Brown

The fourteen acre lake and the parkland was designed by 'Capability' Brown around 1778 and was his last project before his death. In addition the lake is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the established Heronry which nests on the island in the spring. So there is plenty for you and the family to see while the dog gets his exercise, and there is refreshment at the Servants' Hall tea-room when you're done.
