Dogs at the Ramblers Retreat

Dimmingsdale is the perfect location to explore with your four-legged friends.

Whilst we can’t allow dogs in certain smaller, historical indoor areas of our country tea room, we’re a family who’ve always had dogs, so we’ve tried our hardest to make the Ramblers Retreat as pawfect as possible!

Take a look below to find out how to enjoy the Ramblers Retreat with your four-legged friends!

Paws on the Door Dog Friendly Certified!

Dogs are welcome across our Woodland Gardens!

Dogs are welcome across our woodland gardens! Take a seat in our gardens, listening to our waterfall, overlooking Dimmingsdale, with woodland birds on the feeders dotted around. Dogs are welcome in any section of our woodland gardens. Water bowls are dotted around our gardens and are able to be filled from the natural spring water fountains at the rear of our gardens. Free dog treats are available at our garden serving counter, with specially designed Marhfield Farm Scoop’s Dog Ice Cream available to buy!

Enjoy our summerhouses with your dog!

If the rain is pouring, it’s a little chilly or you fancy somewhere different to enjoy your breakfast, lunch or cuppa and a slice of homemade cake, everyone (including your four-legged friends) is welcome to use our summerhouses! Our summerhouses overlook our woodland gardens and are available for all guests on a first-come-first served basis. There’s no additional costs to sit in our summer houses. Water bowls are available in our summer houses for your four-legged friends, just place your order at our garden serving counter, where you can pick up free dog treats & specially designed Marhfield Farm Scoop’s Dog Ice Cream is available to buy!

Take a break in the Potting Shed with your four-legged friends!

Near to our summer houses, overlooking our woodland gardens, is the Potting Shed Dining Area. This converted potting shed is a heated multi-table seating area & community space where guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch or a coffee & a slice of homemade cake with their dogs in a warm, sheltered environment, perfect for when the British weather isn’t quite living up to it’s expectations! There’s no additional costs to sit in our Potting Shed. Water bowls are available in the Potting Shed for your four-legged friends, just place your order at our garden serving counter, where you can pick up free dog treats & specially designed Marhfield Farm Scoop’s Dog Ice Cream is available to buy!

Scoop's Dog Ice Cream

As well as free dog treats & water bowls dotted around our garden seating areas, we have Marshfield Farm Dog Ice Cream available to buy as a treat for your four-legged friends.

Scoop is the Marshfield Farm family farm dog.
The team thought it was about time she got an ice cream too! Scoop’s Ice Cream for Dogs is a frozen treat to get tails wagging because Marshfield believe treating the family means treating the dog too.

A treat containing:

  •  Reduced fat, sugar & lactose content
  •  Glucosamine – for joint care
  •  Vitamin C – for the immune system
  •  Omega 3 – for a glossy coat

 

Unfortunately, the only areas of the Ramblers Retreat that we do not allow dogs are our Snug & Conservatory Restaurant.

Due to the fact that we are based in a historical building: one of the original gate houses to the Earl of Shrewsbury’s Alton Towers Estate, we are limited on space in our Snug & Conservatory. We therefore are unable to accept dogs in this area of the Ramblers Retreat due to the lack of space for your four-legged friends to sit comfortably and for the comfort of other guests.
