Please follow these guidelines when visiting Capel Manor with your dog:

  • Clear up immediately after your dog if it fouls.
  • Make sure your dog wears a collar with your name and address on it – this is a legal requirement under the Control of Dogs Order and could be vital if your dog gets lost.
  • Keep your dog under proper control – remember, not everyone likes your dog as much as you do!
