Dogs are allowed in the gardens if kept on leads and any refuse is removed. We have a dog friendly room attached to the tearoom for you to take shelter and enjoy a meal. Guide dogs are allowed in all areas of the house.

You can cycle into the courtyard and car park but we would advise walking the tracks around the ground as they are gravel tracks and not ideal for bikes.
