Visiting Hanbury with your dog
With nearly 400 acres of parkland, full of woods a fields to explore, you and your four-legged friend are sure to find your new favourite route.
Whether you and your dog would like a gentle stroll or a longer, bracing walk, the parkland has something for everyone. There are three signposted walks that are ideal for exploring with your dog all year round. The walks can take anywhere between thirty minutes to two hours to complete.
Where can I go with my dog?
We love dogs at Hanbury and they are welcome on leads in the forecourt, stableyard and parkland.
Our Park is home to lots of wildlife ranging from the common field mouse to magnificant birds of prey, as well as the farm animals we have grazing in the parkland. Therefore we ask that your dog should be kept on a lead and under close control at all times.
Our definition of close control is:
- Keeping your dog on a lead at all times throughout the parkland.
- Being able to recall your dogs in any situation at the first call.
- Not allowing them to approach other visitors without their consent.
Where can't my dog go?
Assistance dogs only in the Formal Gardens, Cafe areas and the Hall.
Facilities available for my dog
Water bowls can be found at Visitor Reception and our cafe areas. Please ask a member of staff if one can't be found. Taps are located in the Stableyard and at the back of the Hall.
Please clean up after your dog. We have multiple dog waste bins around the grounds and stableyard for you to use.
The Canine Code:
- Take the lead: help reduce the chance of your pup disturbing wildlife by keeping them on a short lead.
- Scoop that poop: bag it and bin it to keep your favourite places beautiful. Dog waste bins can be found in the Stableyard and in the Parkland. Spare bags are available at visitor reception if you’ve forgotten them.
- Paws for thought: look out for information signs and take extra care around livestock.
- Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so keep them close by.
