An intimate family home and peaceful estate set in the rolling hills of the Chilterns.
This picturesque 16th-century mansion and tranquil gardens were home to the Brunner family until recent years. The house exudes a welcoming atmosphere with a well-stocked kitchen and homely living rooms. The series of walled gardens is a colourful patchwork of interest set amid medieval ruins.
Greys Court is an ideal place to stretch your legs with your dog. We have dog-friendly indoor seating available in the tearoom and your four-legged friends are welcome in the shop.
Our pawprint rating system
We’ve been working on making it easier for you to find out how dog-friendly your visit will be before you and your four-legged friend arrive. To help with this, we've created a new pawprint rating system and given all the places in our care a rating.
Greys Court has a pawprint rating of two, which means dogs are welcome. We have water bowls, dog bins and dog-friendly walks. You’ll be able to take your dog into some areas, but not everywhere. You can have a cup of tea with your four-legged friend inside and outside of the tearoom, and dogs are welcome in the shop. Read on to discover exactly where you can take your dog.

Where can my dog go at Greys Court?
Dogs are welcome on a lead on the estate walks and across much of the site at Greys Court. Greys Court is a working farm with livestock often in the fields, so dogs must remain on a lead at all times. This is to make sure they don’t chase other animals and allows other visitors with more reactive dogs or those less confident around dogs feel comfortable walking in the parkland at Greys Court.
The Cowshed tea-room has outdoor seating with water bowls. There is also indoor seating available for visitors with dogs. To access please use the door on the right side and look for the markings on the floor for guidance. We suggest you have at least two people in your group so one of you can take a seat with the dog, while the other orders your food and drink at the servery.
Your dogs are welcome in the shop where there are Forthglade treats and dog walking essentials available to purchase.
Assistance dogs are welcome in the house and the walled garden.
Where can't my dog go at Greys Court?
Only assistance dogs are allowed into the house, the servery area of the tearoom, children's play area, and in the walled garden.
Facilities available for my dog
The dog waste bin is located by Visitor Reception. Please bear this in mind when planning your walks.
You'll find water available in a dog bowl at Visitor Reception and outside the Cowshed tearoom.
Dog friendly picnic spots
You’re welcome to bring your canine companion to any outdoor picnic table on the estate, including the picnic tables by visitor reception and the carpark. The top lawn is a lovely picnic spot when visiting Greys Court with your dog, and it has benches available.
