Walking your dog at Stourhead

Explore the wonderful garden with your pet pooch

Dogs are welcome across Stourhead’s countryside areas all year round. They are welcome in the landscape garden from March-October after 4pm, after 3pm in November and all day, every day from December-February. Please help us by keeping your dog on a lead and picking up after it when in the landscape garden.

Explore further

There are five great estate walks at Stourhead that are ideal for exploring with your dog year round. The walks take between 1 hour and 2½ hours to complete.
 

Farm animals

We’re home to lots of farm animals so please help us and walk your dog on a lead. If cattle approach it may be appropriate to let your dog off the lead.
 

Refreshments

Visit the restaurant after your walk for a refreshing snack and have a look at the new gift ideas in our shop. We are open 9am-6pm March - October and until 5pm from November - February.
 

Paws for thought

Please feel free to use the seating in the visitor reception courtyard, why not sit down and relax after your walk? A water bowl is on hand for thirsty dogs, just let one of our team members know if it needs topping up.
 

Parking

Our parking offers limited shade, and it's available on a first come first served basis. Our car park team are on hand to help if you do need to find some shade for your pet pooch, and will do their best to help.
