Our final dog walk of the season at Raby Castle will take place on Sunday 28th July setting off from the Coach Yard at Raby Castle at 10:30am.
This is a totally FREE event and a great chance to meet fellow dog owners and explore areas of the Estate not normally open to visitors.
The route will be mostly on roads, paths and woodland tracks with access across a couple of fields.
We request that dogs are kept on leads at all times to protect our wild deer herds and other livestock.
The walk will be approximately 90 to 120 minutes long.
Dog walks will resume in February. Check the High Force Hotel and Waterfall events page for details of upcoming dog walks there which take in the spectacular countryside around the Waterfall.
On the day
Visitors should park in the visitor Car Park and meet in the Coach Yard.
It is recommended that you arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of the Walk.
We recommend that all participants wear hard wearing footwear and waterproof clothing if it is wet and suitable sun protection (hats and sunscreen) if it is hot.
A reminder that the Stables Café and Shop are totally dog friendly and there are doggy treats and water bowls available there.
