We regret that dogs, no matter how well behaved, are not allowed in the Mansion (assistance dogs are excepted from this rule). The Trustees have made this decision as they have a duty of care to the exceptional Grade 1 listed building. However, dogs are permitted in Woodchester Mansion grounds, and some visitors to the Mansion tether their dogs outside the building while they visit the Mansion or while they go to the tea room. A water bowl is provided for dogs on Open Days.
More widely, dogs are permitted in the National Trust-owned Woodchester Park, though please note that throughout the year sheep and cattle are grazed in the Park and, therefore dogs should be kept under control at all times.
