Bring your dog to Chartwell

Elvis the dog in Chartwell garden Kent

We welcome dogs into the gardens at Chartwell so you can bring your furry companion along for a stroll outside one of the National Trust's historic houses.

Where can my dog go?

We welcome dogs on short leads into the woods, wider estate and the gardens here at Chartwell. 

Should you wish to visit the café, there is plenty of outside seating where you and you dog may sit and enjoy refreshments. Please leave your dog outside when ordering.

Assistance dogs only are welcome in the house, shop and café.

When walking through the wider estate, please keep dogs on short leads and under control when near live stock.

Dog facilities

Water bowls can be found outside the Landemaré café for your canine to use when thirsty.

Don't worry if you forget to bring dog bags with you, our visitor welcome centre is happy to supply you with bags so you can pick up after your dog.

There are two dog bins located in the car park, one to the left of the visitor welcome centre and the other on the footpath leading to the area of the car park on the top far left.

Thank you for helping to keep our gardens and estate clean for everyone to enjoy.
