Dog Walking Policy

Dogs on leads are welcome in the Pinetum - bins are provided for you to clear up after your dog.  Bags are available from the Visitor Centre if you have forgotten to bring one with you.  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 or Café, 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, cyclists 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 see the map below or ask at the Visitor Centre if you need further clarification.
