Rhug Estate has two designated farm walks around the Estate which give visitors an insight into the Estate’s farm life. There is a short walk which takes approximately 30 minutes and a longer walk which takes approximately an hour. Rhug is a working farm so the animals you see varies each time you visit! Dogs are very welcome, but they must be on a lead at all times. They are allowed into the Cafe Rhug as there are dog friendly tables and there are drinking stations around the Estate and outside the shop.

Please Do

  • Keep dogs on a lead
  • Dog poo – bag it and bin it
  • Leave gates and property as you find them
  • Follow paths but give way to others where it’s narrow
  • Follow advice and local signs and obey social distancing measures
  • Try to avoid getting between cows and their calves
  • Be prepared for cattle to react to your presence, especially if you have a dog with you
  • Move quickly and quietly, and if possible walk around the herd
  • Keep your dog close and under effective control on a lead around cows and sheep

Please Don’t

  • Don’t hang onto your dog. If you are threatened by cattle – let it go as to allow the dog to run to safety
  • Don’t put yourself at risk. Find another way round the cattle and re-join the footpath as soon as possible
  • Don’t panic or run. Most cattle will stop before they reach you. If they follow just walk on quietly
