Take the lead: Visiting Hardwick with your dog

Family walking in parkland with dog on lead

Dogs on leads are welcome in the parkland at Hardwick, with plenty of great walks for you both to enjoy.

Exploring the acres of countryside with your four-legged friend is one of the best ways to enjoy the beautiful parkland at Hardwick. We ask if you please keep your dog on a lead at all times while exploring the Hardwick estate.

Why it's important to have your dog on a lead at Hardwick

Hardwick Park is a working farm, home to our rare breed Long Horn cattle along with herds of sheep. Springtime is here and it's lambing season on the estate. You'll likely see not only bleeting new borns but also pregnant ewes too. To keep these animals safe and secure we please ask to keep your dog on a lead. We have lots of dog poo bins around the estate to use also.
