Bring your dog

Walking your dog in the woods

Whether you're coming to stretch your legs in the parkland or simply to enjoy lunch in the orchard, dogs are very welcome at Dudmaston.

Where can we go?

Dogs on leads are welcome in our orchard and throughout our parkland. Lovely views, open spaces and more secluded paths make Dudmaston a dog walker's paradise.

We only welcome assistance dogs in our garden and indoor spaces, including the Hall and tearoom. There is plenty of seating outside our orchard tearoom where all dogs and owners can relax after a long walk.

Downloadable walks

Choose from one of our downloadable walks (available at the bottom of this page) to make sure that your visit is varied and new each time you come to Dudmaston. Take a stroll around our three pools or head out on Captain Geoffrey's woodland walk.

The sights and sounds down in the Dingle and around the estate change with the seasons so there's always something new to see (and sniff) on each visit. 

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.

Time for tea?

Don't let your dog miss out! We now serve a selection of doggy dinners and treats in the Orchard tearoom. Pop in for a full menu. Meals are provided by Oscar Pet Foods and are all gluten free.
