After the success of our inaugural dog walk earlier in the year, the date has been set for our next walk and it will take place on Saturday 18th May 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.

We will be using a different route to the last walk in order to take in some other areas of the Estate, these will include beautiful bluebell woods, stunning views and another even more impressive folly!

The route will be through areas not normally accessible to the public and 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 approx. 90 to 120 minutes long. There is a slight hill at the start, but the majority of it will be quite flat.

On the day

Visitors should park in the visitor Car Park at the Castle and meet in the Coach Yard where we will ask people to sign in

It is recommended that people 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) for 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.

Please be mindful of other Café visitors if you/your dog is extremely dirty. The canopy area in the Coach Yard and the Kiosk will be open.

The Stables Shop has a dog range now available; Wellybix tasty treats which are homemade in Allison’s kitchen in Romaldkirk, a guide to the best dog friendly pubs, hotels and B&B’s and leads and collars by Blossom co which are made in Britain.
