Dog walking in Hampshire

Not sure where you can walk your dogs at our places? They're welcome in many areas of our gardens, wider estates and open countryside spots in Hampshire. We've got miles of dog-friendly downloadable trails - across our New Forest and northern Hampshire commons. And there are acres of woods and fields to explore at Mottisfont, The Vyne and Hinton Ampner. Remember to keep your dog on a lead, and follow property guidance to ensure you and your pooch have a great day out.

We love dogs and they're more than welcome to explore the gardens and estate with you. While dogs are welcome in most places we ask that you keep dogs on a short lead at all times while you visit, so that everyone can enjoy their time with us.
