Dogs are allowed on-site but should be kept on leads. We have water bowls for dogs at various points around the site.
Only service dogs are permitted in the cafe area.
While we do welcome dogs onboard our boat trips, we advise that wherever possible dogs don’t travel as our boats can be noisy – definitely not an ideal scenario for pooches of a nervous disposition.
