Visiting Winkworth Arboretum with your dog

Dog walking at Ashridge Herts in winter

Your four-legged friend is welcome to explore Winkworth Arboretum all year round. To help all our visitors have the best possible visit, we simply ask that you adhere to the Countryside Code and keep your dog on a lead at all times.

Dog-walking etiquette

So everyone can enjoy Winkworth's historic landscape, please always clear up after your dog. Unfortunately we're unable to provide dog waste bins, but there is a waste bin outside the tea-room if needed.

Animal welfare

Winkworth is home to a wide variety of native animals, including the beautiful roe deer. You can help look after the Arboretum's precious wildlife by keeping your dog on a short lead and under close control.

As advised by the RSPCA, please don't leave your dog unattended in a car at any time during the year.

The tea-room

Dogs are welcome in the large seating area outside the tea-room, where we offer a bowl of water so they can enjoy a relaxing drink too.
