Walking your dog at Nymans

Family walking dogs

Towards the end of 2018 we welcomed dogs into the garden on a trial basis and invited visitors to give us feedback about their experience.

We received a broad range of feedback during our trial and are pleased to say that we will be continuing to welcome visitors with dogs into the garden during our winter opening hours. This year this is from 4 November 2019 to 2 February 2020.

During winter opening hours - from 4 November 2019 until 2 February 2020 - dogs will be welcome in the garden from 1.30pm – 4pm.

Dogs continue to be welcome at any time throughout the year in our woods and during opening hours in the outdoor seating area of the cafe and in the shop. Please note dogs should be under close control in our woods during bird nesting season from 1 March to 31 August.

When visiting the garden with a dog we ask for them to be on a short lead as this will help us look after the garden. We will happily exchange extending leads for short leads at visitor reception, we will also provide dog waste bags. Some areas of the garden are particularly fragile so to help to protect them we'll be establishing a route for visitors with dogs. This route will be published and available on our website and in Visitor Reception nearer the time.

Assistance dogs are welcome during opening hours throughout the year in the garden, house, tea garden and shop, and in our woods at any time.
