Dogs are welcome at Grimsthorpe. There are plenty of places to walk your dog (on a lead please). We do ask that you avoid the formal gardens and children's adventure playground, but that still leaves hundreds of acres to explore. Under no circumstances should you take your dog into any areas where there are cattle. The Tearoom, Shop and the Castle are off limits to all dogs except guide dogs.
It is important that we respect both the livestock and wildlife in the park, so it is vital that dogs are not allowed to disturb any other animals, including ground-nesting birds. By cleaning up after your dog you will also ensure that other visitors' enjoyment of the park is not spoilt.
If you are planning on taking the Park Ranger Tour, your well-behaved dog is welcome to accompany you in the minibus. This is preferable to leaving it in a hot car. If you can't find the dog water bowl outside the Shop just ask and we'll point you in the right direction.
Regular dog walkers might want to consider buying a Season Ticket to the park.
