Dogs welcome

Brockhole loves our four-legged friends!

We welcome well-behaved dogs on leads in:

  • the gardens and grounds
  • the shop
  • the exhibition area
  • the café terrace and orangery

Dogs are not allowed in: 

  • the adventure playground
  • play and learn room
  • inside the main café area. However they are most welcome in the orangery area and there is plenty of outside seating, some of it undercover, for customers with dogs wishing to use the café. 

Guide dogs and disability assistance dogs

Guide dogs and disability assistance dogs are welcome in the café. Please ask if you need assistance.

Dog waste bins

Many of our visitors are children, so it's important that you pick up after your dog to avoid messing up pushchair wheels and worse!

There are dog waste bins in the grounds. Doggy waste bags can be provided - please ask at the shop.
