Visiting Seaton Delaval Hall With Your Dog

We’re big fans of dogs here at Seaton Delaval Hall, and you’ll often find our staff members here walking their dogs around the grounds. Local Partnerships Coordinator Sarah has already introduced her puppy Luna to the South East Gardens and House and Collections Officer Helen S loves to bring in her sidekick Border Terrier, Rory. To help you get the best from your own visit with your four-legged friend we’ve put together a short guide to bringing your dog to the hall.

Where can my dog go at Seaton Delaval Hall?

To support the enjoyment of all visitors and keep the neighbouring farm animals safe, dogs must be kept on a lead at all times. They are welcome in all outdoor areas of the property with the exception of the Delaval Playdium in the North West Woods.  Assistance dogs are permitted throughout the property, inside and out.

Please take care around the edges of the grounds along the ha-ha walls as there are steep drops off the side.

Where can’t my dog go at Seaton Delaval Hall?

Assistance dogs only are welcome inside our buildings. Dogs are not allowed in the Delaval Playdium play area of the North West Woods.

What do I need to be aware of at Seaton Delaval Hall?

· Take the lead: help reduce the chance of your pup disturbing wildlife by keeping them on a lead.

· Scoop that poop: bag it and bin it to keep your favourite places beautiful. 

· Paws for thought: look out for information signs and take extra care close to the haha walls.

· Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so please keep them close by.

Dog friendly facilities at Seaton Delaval Hall:
