Dogs on leads welcome
Exploring Longshaw and the Eastern Moors with your four-legged friend is a great way to enjoy the beautiful landscape, and we welcome dogs on leads.
Paws-ing for snacks
After a good walk, you and your dog might need a drink. There’s outdoor seating for dog walkers at our tea-room and dog bowls of water there too.
What's on for four-legged friends?
Our guided walks are free, and dogs on leads are welcome. Simply meet outside the cafe at 11am on Wednesdays and Sundays, and you'll be back by 1.30pm. We also have a Wag-a-Tail Trail on 4th April on the Eastern Moors. Head to www.visit-eastern-moors.org.uk/plan-your-visit/whats-on for more information.
Considering wildlife and livestock
We ask visitors to keep dogs on leads because Longshaw and the Eastern Moors are home to ground-nesting birds such as curlew, grouse, golden plover, lapwing, meadow pipit, short-eared owl and skylark.
We also have livestock including sheep and cattle which are used to maintain the landscape for nature conservation.
From 1st March until 31st July each year, it is law to keep your dog on a lead.
We thank you for setting an example to others, helping the countryside to be an enjoyable experience for people and for wildlife.
