Bringing your dog to Bodnant Garden

Dog in autumn at Bodnant Garden

With 80 acres to explore, from formal gardens to wilder meadows and woods, there's a walk to suit everyone at Bodnant Garden.

If you're visiting with your dog we ask that for the enjoyment of all our visitors, for the wellbeing of our beds and borders and to protect local wildlife and livestock you stick to our paths and follow some simple guidelines. With our corporate partner Forthglade we've produced the Canine Code:

Take the lead: Please keep your pup on a short, not extendable lead.
Scoop that poop: Bag it and bin it to keep your favourite places beautiful.
Paws for thought: Look out for information signs and take extra care on cliff paths.
Be on the ball: Not everyone loves dogs, so keep yours close by.

On reopening the garden after lockdown, we know you and your dog will be as excited to return to Bodnant as we are to have you back. However please take extra care while walking with your pets at this time, to maintain social distancing between yourselves and our staff, volunteers and other visitors.

Check out our neighbouring National Trust Wales places too. With castles, coast and countryside to explore, there are many opportunities for some great walkies right on our doorstep.
