Dog walking at Brockhampton

Bring your dog for a day out at Brockhampton. The estate is dog friendly with miles of woods and parkland to explore to tire out your four legged friend.

Where can my dog go?

You can take your dog on a walk on anyone of our way-marked routes. Because Brockhampton is a farmed estate you must always keep your four-legged friend on a lead, livestock is moved around the estate during the year so it is impossible to say where exactly you’ll see roaming animals which means it’s a good idea to keep your dog under control at all times. Deer also breed in the woodlands here so it's really important dogs are not let-off where they can startle or chase the wildlife. We ask politely that even if your dog does have perfect recall you still keep it on a lead as seeing it off can confuse other visitors. 

The grounds at Brockhampton are dog friendly too. You’re welcome to bring your dog into the courtyard, where there are water bowls, through the orchards and around the outside of the manor house.

Where can’t my dog go?

We do not allow dogs inside the manor house or catering outlets here at Brockhampton although they are very welcome to sit outside with their owners.

What do I need to be aware of at Brockhampton?

  • Take the lead: help reduce the chance of your pup disturbing wildlife by keeping them on a lead.
  • Scoop that poop: bag it and bin it to keep your favourite places beautiful.
  • Paws for thought: look out for information signs
  • Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so keep them close by.

Facilities available for my dog

In both carparks you can find bins, please bag up and dispose of dog waste in these. If you do happen to turn up and have forgotten doggy bags please do feel free to ask at Visitor Reception as we have an emergency supply. Water bowls are also available in the top carpark and Lower Brockhampton courtyard, just outside the Granary.
