A dog walk includes letting the dog run. As this place requires you to keep your dog on the lead at all times I would say it is not dog friendly!

There are two toilet blocks, one near the cafe and one near the craft workshops. There are no toilets within the grounds/gardens themselves.

Yes, absolutely. The place is perfect for dog walking. But they do need to be kept on a leash and their mess cleaned. Appropriate bins provided in the car park.
