    Dog Walkers

    Dog walkers are welcome around the site. A water bowl is available by the Gift Shop and we sell dog treats in both the Gift Shop and the Mansion, We kindly ask that dogs are kept on leads on the northern drive and in the car park for safety.


    We have a dedicated Car Park on site with spaces taken on a first come first serve basis. Parking is free but we ask for a suggested donation of £3 for those who can afford it. This can be paid in the Gift Shop or the Foyer of the Mansion. When the Car Park is full we ask people not to park in undesignated places but to instead park off site on the surrounding streets. Please respect local residents when finding a space.


    Both the Stable Yard and Mansion have disabled access toilets. Please download a map from our ‘Visit’ page to view accessible pathways in the gardens. Assistance dogs are allowed in all buildings. Disabled parking is available north of the Gift Shop in our car park.
