There are two toilet blocks, one near the cafe and one near the craft workshops. There are no toilets within the grounds/gardens themselves.

Response from Angharad G | Property representative |
Yes, absolutely. The place is perfect for dog walking. But they do need to be kept on a leash and their mess cleaned. Appropriate bins provided in the car park.
