Walkies at Tyntesfield

Woof, woof. This year we’re trialling something new and changing where you and your four-legged friend can explore. As soon as you’ve had your membership card scanned or purchased an admission ticket at the ticket office, you are (with your dog on a lead) welcome to walk around the entire estate; except the formal garden and walled garden.

So why are we trailing this new approach?

Well, because you asked us to and we know that your dog is just as much a part of your family as Uncle Jack and Granny are.

We hope you'll enjoy being able to explore more during the summer months and by having your membership card scanned or purchasing an admission ticket you can know you're making a real contribution to keeping Tyntesfield looked after for future generations.

It is just a trial, so we will have to evaluate feedback from all our visitors. Hopefully everyone enjoys their visit to Tyntesfield so we can continue to open up more parts of the estate for you and your four legged friend.

Note: An admission ticket is not needed to access the Public Rights of Way on the estate. Please ask in the ticket office for further information.
If you have not had your membership card scanned or do not have an admission ticket you will be asked to return to a public Right of Way.

Your four-legged friend (on a lead) can now join you in exploring more of the estate

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. Please ask one of the car park team or at the Ticket Office on arrival.

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

Hungry or thirsty?

Why not start your walk first with a bite to eat or a drink as we have outside seating for you and your four-legged friend at Home Farm and the Pavilion Cafe
There are dog water bowls located here too.

Not everyone loves dogs though, so the restaurant, café and gift shop at Home Farm are dog-free areas. You can use the covered area at the rear of the Pavilion Cafe but, during the summer inside is a dog free area. Thanks for your understanding.

Four-legged friends are welcome at Tyntesfield

Assistance dogs

The formal gardens, house and Home Farm are accessible for assistance dogs all year round.

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

Pooch etiquette

We want everyone to explore Tyntesfield safely; so please keep your dog on a short lead and scoop that poop and pop in the bins provided. No bagged poop tree decorations please.
