Dogs in cars

The RSPCA advises that animals should never be left unattended in vehicles in warm weather. Dogs can die from heatstroke in as little as 20 minutes: leaving the car in the shade, the car windows open or providing a bowl of water inside does not help. Please be aware that the Police/RSPCA may be called if dogs are left unattended in vehicles. Thank you for your help in this matter.                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Please Note: No dogs allowed in the House & Grounds unless they are Assistance Dogs.


We welcome photography in the grounds but there is a strict ‘No Photography’ policy in the house.
