Visiting Hardwick with your dog

Family walking in parkland with dog on lead

Four-legged visitors 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. Dogs on leads are welcome in the parkland and Stableyard.

Paws-ing for a snack

When stopping for a warming cuppa, you can enjoy the outside seating on the South Terrace, it's a perfect sun trap for relaxing after a walk. There are water bowls at Visitor Centre and Gatehouse so you dog can always be refreshed.

Out in the park

Hardwick Park is a working farm, home to our rare breed Long Horn cattle along with herds of sheep. Please keep your dog on a lead when walking in the park, especially during the spring when young animals are in the fields. It is also important to be respectful of other visitors.

We welcome assistance dogs in all of the indoor spaces including the Hall and garden.
