Waggy tails welcome

Dog on a walk

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 in the parkland when livestock is grazing there. Stock movement dates throughout the parkland can be found here. At all other times dogs are welcome if kept under control. Only assistance dogs are permitted in the house and gardens.
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:

You are welcome to bring your well-behaved dog into the Park Café while you enjoy a hot drink and a slice of cake.

The tea-room welcomes dogs whenever it is open - check out the front page for our opening times.
There is a covered area in the courtyard to help keep your pet cool on hot days and waterbowls both here and at reception.
