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.
