Don’t leave your dog at home
Eastnor Castle is very proud to be a Dogs Welcome tourist attraction and one of the few stately homes where dogs are welcome into its grounds and house.
If they are on a lead, your dog is welcome to wander with you when you visit, and every owner is offered dog waste bags on arrival. There is also a dedicated ‘Dogs-Off-Leads Area’ where dogs are free to run amongst the trees!
“Really lovely place, very peaceful but also kept 4 teenagers busy for 5 hours! Loads of beautiful space and very friendly staff.”
