Dog walking at Knole

A dog out for a winter stroll

From Irish Wolfhounds to tiny Scottie-Poos, Knole is perfect for you and your pooch. There’s over 1000 acres of parkland you can both enjoy, although make sure you always keep them on a leash and away from the wild deer herd.

That's a lot of parkland, although National Trust only manage 100 acres of it - the rest is managed by Lord Sackville's Knole Estate, so please bear that in mind.

A few little things

Because of the nature of Knole’s parkland, there are just a few things to bear in mind when you’re heading out for a scamper:
  • Please keep your dog on a lead at all times. This is to protect the herd of wild deer who roam the parkland.
  • Please always pick up after your dog. The park is protected by SSSI status but we do now have a few dedicated dog bins on the National Trust managed land. Please dispose of any dog waste in these or take it with you when you leave.
  • Dogs on leads are welcome in our Courtyards only. Assistance dogs are welcome indoors. 
  • Our car park doesn’t have shaded areas. So on sunny days, please avoid leaving your dog in the car.
  • The Brewhouse Cafe has an outdoor section covered with umbrellas, perfect for a hot drink for you, and a cold one for your canine friend. The shop also sells doggie bags and other accessories.
