Tatton Park is an immense area of parkland with a mass of scents for dogs to enjoy from both the farm and the freely roaming deer and livestock. Good for an all-day, or long, visit because of the hefty £7 parking charge.
Parking 1000-1900 £7 for all visitors, including NT members, last entry 1800. Dog poo bins in car parks. Refreshments available at The Stables café. National Trust shop. WC, gift shop, picnic area, cycle hire, historic vehicle displays.
Tatton Park is an immense area of parkland with a cornucopia of scents for dogs to enjoy from both the farm and the freely roaming deer and livestock. So although there is plenty of space for all to enjoy, this is a better walk with an extendable lead to make sure that dogs and deer don't clash.
Local dog walkers seem to prefer the Old Hall car park, away from the main visitor focus points. This car park also makes a walk possible for wheelchair users as we were told it is possible to treat the seldom used tarmac lane from the car park to the Old Hall as a path, which appears to be a highly workable approach.
As the land here is lusciously green grass, there is no trail to follow – just enjoy the splendour of the park and some aimless wandering. At The Stables café, dogs are welcome at the outside tables and large water bowls are provided.

£7 car park charge
I was disappointed to arrive at Tatton Park for a quick walk as I travelled along the M6. The car park fee was £7 and there was no option to pay for just an hour. I looked for National Trust signs but there weren’t any so I assumed that my NT membership wouldn’t help. My mistake! Your website says it is a NT property - I should have asked.
DWD Team: So sorry about the mixup here. You're right, there is now a £7 parking charge for ALL visitors, even though it is a National Trust property. We missed the change in parking charges and have now amended this, and will make it clear to members that this is not a good place to stop for a doggiestop any more.
