National Trust mansion with a most imposing vista. The house was re-modelled by Robert Adam, and makes a delightful backdrop for a walk in all seasons. Dogs are welcome in the woods and parkland (not in the house or other designated areas). Definitely a great place to take a break, with everything on hand to satisfy dogs and passengers alike.
Bins placed at regular intervals for dog waste, treats in the welcome centre to reward well-behaved dogs and water outside the park café and Welcome Centre.Cafe and WCs (incl Disabled) Free parking for NT members; P&D if you're not a member. Gift shop
Disabled access to paths: In partnership with Devon Mobility Scheme, an off-road tramper is available for hire for members of the scheme. Pop into the Welcome Centre or call the office on 01752 333500 for more information.
Leaflets with walk routes can be picked up from the Welcome Centre. And they also show which paths are suitable for buggies/wheelchairs - which is really helpful. Many of the paths are hard-surfaced which is brilliant on a wet day if you don't want to continue your journey with soggy feet.

Visited here recently (mid October) on a journey from Cornwall to South Devon Coast. Highly recommend as a dog stop. There was plenty of safe, open space for dogs to be off lead. There is a circular path walk you can do which takes about an hour. There is a National Trust cafe trailer in the car park serving teas, coffees and cakes or the site cafe is open if you want something more substantial. You don't need to pay to go into the site to access these facilities. Clean loos too. There is a £2 car park fee and they do contactless payments for these if you don't have cash.
