Dog Walking Policy

Dogs on leads are welcome in the Pinetum - bins and bags are provided for you to clear up after your dog. In the forest, we ask that you keep them away from the children's play area and under control at all times, especially in the car park. Additionally, dogs are not allowed inside the visitor centre and the cafe, with the exception of guide dogs. The forest trails are the only areas where you are permitted to let your dog off the lead. Please be aware of other forest users such as horse riders and families with children. Excited dogs can frighten people and other animals!  It is also important to remember that some areas of the forest may be inhabited by Adders and some of the lakes may contain algae, both of which could cause harm to your dogs.

Please ask at the visitor centre if you need clarification. Leads and collars are available to purchase here too.
