Monthly Dog-Walking Club

Stourhead is launching a new monthly dog-walking club for our visitors and their four-legged friends.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

The social club, led by Stourhead volunteers, will run on the third Tuesday of every month. Although Stourhead is famous for its landscape garden, the property also boasts a magnificent 2650 acre estate where walkers can explore ancient woodland, sweeping pastures and some lesser-known eye-catching monuments.

The basics

Suitability
Dogs on leads are welcome.
Meeting point
Dogs and their owners should gather outside Visitor Reception at 9:30am from where they will set out for a leisurely walk finishing back in the car park at 10:30.
What to bring and wear
Please bring a lead, poo bags, and appropriate footwear as the walk may be muddy in places.
Accessibility
The walk covers uneven ground and is therefore not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
