Bring your dog to Dudmaston

Dudmaston pool dog walk

Four-legged friends are very welcome on the estate. Bring your dog for daily walks in Comer Woods. You don't need to book to visit here. If you fancy a change of scene, come and explore the Dingle and Parkland walks at Dudmaston Hall. Just remember to book your entry ticket in advance by visiting the 'What's on' section on our website.

Comer Woods

Open everyday, all year-round, Comer Woods is a great place to do your daily dog walk. With circular routes of varying distances, there's always somewhere new to explore. Dogs are free to explore off lead in the woodland but please be respectful of other people and wildlife. 

There is a dog poo bin in Comer Woods car park. If it is appropriate, please 'stick and flick' dog mess off the trails and footpaths.

Parking in Comer Woods is free for National Trust members. A small parking charge applies to non-members. Please scan your membership card in the machine to receive your free ticket. Funds raised in the car park help us to pay for on-going conservation and access work in the woods.

Where can we go?

Dogs on leads are welcome in the orchard, courtyard and on parkland walks. Take in the views, make the most of the open spaces and explore the pathways together.

The garden, tea-room and mansion are all dog-free zones (apart from assistance dogs).  There is plenty of seating outside our Orchard Tea-room where dogs and owners can relax after a long walk.

Walking with cattle

We have roaming cattle on the estate which is why we ask everyone to keep their dogs on leads throughout the park. Cows are very inquisitive animals by nature and are often curious about dogs.

If you come across the herd whilst dog walking keep calm and try not to startle the animals. It is however a good idea to to talk to the animals or whistle to let them know you're approaching them.

If your dog is approached by the cattle, do not pick them up, instead, let go of the lead and meet your dog further along the path. The grazing cattle at Dudmaston have been assessed by the farmer for their suitability for grazing in public areas.
