Farm Walks

The days are getting longer, so why not dust off the families' walking shoes and head to the Rhug Estate to go on a Farm Walk.

Rhug Farm Walk

The Rhug 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 Bison Grill as there are dog friendly tables and there are drinking stations around the Estate and outside the shop.

Dos and don’ts for walking amongst livestock from the Ramblers Association:

Do

  • 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.

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.

The Rhug’s Farm Walks are free for all to enjoy, just pick up a map from the Farm Shop or the Bistro before you start off.
