Notice About Dogs

We have made the hard decision NOT to allow dogs in the Lakeland Farm Visitor Centre.  We haven’t made this decision lightly, but to ensure the safety and welfare of our livestock we felt it necessary.  Please be responsible if leaving your dog in a car, especially in warm weather.

We thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
