Visit Attingham with your dog
Exploring our acres of parkland with your four-legged friend is a great way to enjoy the beautiful landscape, and we welcome well-behaved dogs.
Attingham attracts thousands of dog walkers a year, so to ensure that everyone can enjoy their visit we've put together a dog policy to give you more information on bringing four-legged friend here on your visit. From June 2020 onwards, in light of the Coronavirus pandemic and government guidance on social distancing we have updated our policy to be dogs on leads at all times while at Attingham.
The ins and outs
We welcome assistance dogs only in our indoor spaces including shop and cafe (the Mansion is currently closed to visitors). All paws are very welcome to explore our grounds on lead.
Paws-ing for snacks
After a good walk, you and your dog might need a sit down and a drink. We’ve got outdoor seating for dog walkers outside our Carriage House Café. We also have outdoor catering at the food kiosk, in our Field of Play serving barista made coffees, hot and cold drinks and savoury and sweet snacks, currently open 11am -4pm. it's the perfect place to pop in and grab a drink or snack to take on your walk, or enjoy at the picnic tables in the orchard.
We also have '10 minute dog tie up points' in the Stables Courtyard. You may tie your dog up here for a maximum of 10 minutes while you visit the second-hand bookshop, Stables Shop, toilets, and Carriage House Cafe.
Taking the lead
From June 2020 onwards, in light of the Coronavirus pandemic and government guidance on social distancing we have updated our policy to be dogs on leads at all times while at Attingham. We know that the overwhelming majority of our dog walkers are responsible, however we do have incidents regarding dogs - injuries to visitors, dogs getting stuck in the river, or dogs attacking each other, keeping dogs on leads reduces the risks of these enabling social distancing to be maintained.
