This hidden gem is surrounded by acres of public footpaths, made for walks with your little four-paws. Stroll the public footpaths with your pooch through the estate's parkland and enjoy beautiful landscapes while your pup takes in the scents. Along the way you'll catch views of the House at Penshurst Place, and at the beginning of your walk you'll find the Porcupine Pantry Cafe for treats to keep you going. While pups can't enter the house and gardens, visitors to the public footpaths are able to park in the regular Penshurst Place and Gardens car park, making getting to your walk a stroll in the park.
Please remember that your dog is your responsibility - pick up your dog mess, keep your dog under close control and on the lead if you enter a field with livestock. Read more about the countryside code at explorekent.org/the-countryside-code
