Your dog is welcome at Lanhydrock

Dog-friendly walking at Lanhydrock

If you've got a soft spot for friends of the four-legged kind, you're not alone. A quick browse through the Victorian family's albums reveals as many images of pets as of people.

Walks around the estate

You can pick up route guides for our estate walks at the gatehouse, reception and shop. You're welcome to park in our main visitor car park or the car park at Respryn, which is handy for riverside walks.

Walkies etiquette

Please keep dogs on their leads by riversides, in the woodland and in the parkland between 1 April and 31 December when livestock is grazing there. Sadly dogs (except assistance dogs) are not permitted in the house, gardens or on the cycle trails.
To help you help us keep Lanhydrock looking lovely we've got bins for dog waste in various places popular with dog walkers around the estate, including near reception, the car park and near the entrance to the house courtyard. You can download a map of these bins here:

Stables tea-room

Walking your dog around Lanhydrock's expansive estate can be hungry work, and if you fancy stopping for a snack or drink come to the Stable tea-room where dogs are welcome in the outdoor seating area.
There is a covered area here to keep your pet cool on hot days and waterbowls here and at reception.
