Bringing your dog to Cliveden

Couple walking dogs through woodlands

There's over 300 acres of woodlands, fields and riverbank ambling to be sniffed at round Cliveden.

Where can I walk?

Our dog walkers' guide shows the miles of walks available to you in the woodlands and offers suggested routes from of our regular dog walkers. For direct access to the dog walking area, you can park in our woodland car park. You can also park in the Walled Garden and use the dog walking path leading from here down to the woodlands. By not bringing your dog into the formal gardens (which includes the maze and play area), you’ll be helping us to look after these special places.

The Gift Shop

There's lots of lovely things in Cliveden's gift shop, and we invite everyone inside to have a look. Dogs are welcome to join their owners for a browse, as long as they are on a tight leash and under control.

A few golden rules...

Whilst you are exploring the woodlands, please ensure you adhere to the following:

  • Please keep your dog under control at all times. This means your dog responds to orders when you call it.

  • Cliveden is home to lots of wildlife, a temptation for even the best-behaved dog. Do not allow dogs to harm any creatures on National Trust property.

  • Do not bring more than four dogs per visitor

  • We provide special bins for your doggies waste. Please clean-up after them and dispose of the waste in the dog bins provided.

  • If you lose your dog on the estate, please let a member of the Cliveden team know and we will do what we can to help reunite you.

  • We ask that professional dog walkers do not conduct their business on or from our grounds.
  • Most of our events do not allow dogs. Please call ahead to check specific details.
  • Assistance dogs are welcome across the estate
  • Dogs are not allowed inside the formal gardens
  • The Orangery, Dovecote and Doll’s House cafés are not accessible to dogs. These are within the formal gardens and therefore dogs should be kept away from these areas.
