The estate encompasses 600 hectares (1500 acres) of parkland, farmland, woodland, and gardens.
Rosie, January 2020
The Temple Newsam Estate covers an area of around 3000 acres in total and has various individual attractions within it including a grand Jacobean Mansion (TEMPLE NEWSAM HOUSE), and a small rare breeds working farm (HOME FARM) neither of which allow dogs.
The 18th century stable courtyard has a Gift Shop, accessible toilets, and a popular Tea Rooms with outdoor seating areas where dogs on lead are permitted.
It can take all day to explore the grassy park (with surfaced paths), fieldside tracks, and extensive ancient woodlands. There are various signposted trails as well as a multi use track (walkers, cyclists, & horses) which skirts the estate perimeter. Provided they are under close control dogs can currently be walked off lead in all these areas.
Although there are various waste disposal bins around the central house and farm area, there are very few anywhere else on the estate so be prepared to carry your poop bags until you get back to your car.
Depending on the time of year (thanks to careful design by Capability Brown) you can see wonderful displays of crocus and daffodils alongside the main access road to the house, bluebells in the woods, or colourful rhododendrons in the more ornamental garden areas.
If you follow the brown tourist signs you will end up at the Pay & Display car park close to Temple Newsam House but there are various other parking areas within the estate which are free to use.
