Can I bring my dog?

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 we walk?

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, which is particularly fragile.
  • 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 welcome map, which you can pick up at the Ticket Office while you have your membership card scanned or purchase an admission ticket.

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

A helping paw

We have dog water bowls and waste bins dotted around the estate. Please bag and drop your dog’s poop in the bins provided (no bagged poop tree decorations please!)

Unfortunately we have limited shaded parking for dogs so please ask one of the car park team or at the Ticket Office when you arrive.

We want everyone to explore Tyntesfield safely; so please keep your dog on a short lead throughout your visit. Thank you.

Please remember to bring a short lead for your four-legged friend

Hungry or thirsty?

Why not start your walk with a bite to eat or a drink?

Although the Cow Barn restaurant is a dog free area, we have plenty of outdoor seating and dog water bowls for you to use.

Dogs are welcome in the Pavilion café by the Kitchen Garden at the lower end of the estate.
