Dogs at Croome

You and your pooch will receive a warm welcome at Croome. Dog friendly maps, downloadable walks, water bowls, waste bags/bins and tether points make your walk with your dog more enjoyable.

With stunning panoramic landscapes, fields to scamper around in and woodlands to be explored there’s something for everyone and every dog.

On arrival why not pick up our dog friendly map which will show you the acres of parkland waiting to be discovered and also the designated ‘dog off the lead’ areas your dog can run around or download it here Dog walking at Croome (PDF / 0.2MB) download

Throughout the parkland we have located water bowls, waste bins and tether points. Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten your waste bag - there’s a dispenser at the Visitor Centre and dog bins are marked on the map.

We love seeing your pets enjoying the wide open spaces of Croome - why not post a #dogsofcroome picture on Twitter.

To ensure all our visitors, with or without a dog, can have a great day and to protect the live stock in the parkland we do ask that visitors are aware of our Dog Walking Policy.

Dog walking policy

We love welcoming dogs and want this to continue and by following this you are helping us to look after the gardens, parkland and wildlife.

Code of conduct

  • Respect other visitors. Not everyone likes dogs. We also welcome many anxious dogs and assistance dogs.
  • Respect wildlife and livestock. Croome is home to many different species of birds and animals who don’t want to be disturbed.
  • Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times unless you are on a public footpath, where they must be under effective control. 
  • Please don’t let your dog swim in the lake and the river for their health and so as not to disturb wildlife.
  • Please clean up after your dog. Dog waste bins are marked on the map. Spare bags are available at visitor reception if you’ve forgotten them.
  • Don’t leave your dog in the car, if a dog is left in a car and appears distressed we will inform the relevant authorities.

Your dog is welcome across all areas of Croome, except the Court, the RAF museum, shop and the RAF canteen.  Assistance dogs are welcome in all of these areas.

Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times unless you are on a public footpath, where they must be under effective control.  This may mean keeping your dog on the lead or in sight at all times when you are confident it will return to you on command, ensuring it does not stray off the footpath or designated area.
