Dog policy

Dogs on a short lead are allowed on the Drive and Woodland path. We ask dog owners to pick up after their dogs.
Dogs are not allowed in the house or within the walled garden (Except guide Dogs).

At the moment, the grounds are under considerable development, and we hope to be able to offer tours around our beautiful gardens at some point in the future.

The different walks in the surroundings of the house are described below.  We used the ‘Woodland Walk’ for the Illumination Event held on Leap Year Day, February 2020.

Keep an eye on our What’s on section of the website for news of upcoming events.

Woodland Walk


This short walk starts at the beautiful “Five Sisters” and takes you through the woodland. You will see an amazing variety of trees that have been imported from North America in the 1880’s. The walk will bring you to the front of Bannockburn House. This pathway was funded through Paths for All
