Dogs at The Buscot and Coleshill Estates

Dog in woods at the Buscot and Coleshill Estates Oxfordshire

Dogs are welcome across The Buscot and Coleshill Estates all year round. With miles of footpaths to explore and circular walks to follow, there's plenty of choice for a great walk.

Considering wildlife and livestock

Please help ensure that our visitors, dogs, wildlife and livestock all get along by keeping your dog under close control at all times and preferably on a lead. The estate is home to lots of farm animals, so please put your dog on a lead when close to them.

Cows are naturally curious; if they approach, walk slowly with your dog at heel. If you feel threatened, let go of your dog. It can run faster than the cattle and escape. Once you are safe, regain control of your dog.

Always walk around cows with calves; they may feel threatened if you walk between them. If you are unsure, try to find an alternative route around the field. 

Look out for local notices

There may be restrictions in woodland or farmland at certain times of the year - during lambing, or between March and July when ground nesting birds are raising their young.

During your walk

Please pick up after your dog and dispose of your dog waste responsibly,  helping us to keep The Buscot and Coleshill Estates a safer and cleaner place for all.

Need a break? 

If you and your pooch fancy some well-earned refreshments, Coleshill Community Shop, The Radnor Arms and Buscot Tea-rooms all have seating outside and water bowls for thirsty dogs.
