Visiting Tyntesfield with your dog

A visitor walking through the woods

Dogs on short leads are welcome in most areas of the Tyntesfield estate, apart from the historic buildings, the Rose Garden and the walled garden.

Where can my dog go?

Dogs on short leads are allowed almost everywhere at Tyntesfield, apart from:

  • The historic buildings on the estate, including the house and the Cow Barn restaurant and shop.
  • The Rose Garden
  • The walled garden, where many of the ingredients used in the Cow Barn restaurant and Pavilion cafe are grown.

The dog free areas are clearly marked on our walking routes map, which you can download or view on arrival. 

While more of the estate is open for you to explore, please check your welcome map for the marked dog-free areas.

The Canine Code

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 on cliff paths.
  •  Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so keep them close by.

What do I need to be aware of at Tyntesfield?

Please keep your dog on a short lead throughout your visit - there's livestock, small children and occassionaly estate vehicles moving around, so it helps us keep everyone safe. 

Tyntesfield is a haven for plants and wildlife, and dogs roaming off the path mean that plant diseases which may be brought in are more easily spread. By keeping your dog on a lead, on the paths, you can help us protect the fascinating things that grow at Tyntesfield.

What about assistance dogs?

Assistance dogs are welcome across the estate throughout the year.
