Dog Walking

Dogs on the reserve

Tewkesbury Nature Reserve welcomes well-behaved dogs and responsible owners. Dogs should be under effective control at all times, and only allowed off the lead if you are confident they will come when called.

Please clear up after your dog: there are dog-bins situated outside the reserve close to all the major entrances.

Be aware we have cattle and sheep grazing the reserve at certain times of the year: it is a criminal offence to allow your dog to worry livestock.

Dogs must not be allowed to disturb wildlife, or to annoy other users of the reserve.
