Finlaystone House
Children, Families & Dogs

Finlaystone Country Estate is set up for the enjoyment of all ages. You can either pay for the day or you can take out an annual membership which enables you to come as often as you wish. We offer group memberships for families and grandparents as well as single or concession memberships.

Dogs are very welcome on the estate – please keep them on a lead in the gardens or near the play areas in the woodlands.

Our activities include the following:


Reservations for Picnics, BBQs, Parties and Ranger-led Activities

Why not visit for a barbecue or picnic? We have several outdoor locations with a built in BBQ, some also have small log cabins in case of bad weather. These can be reserved in advance or you can book the Old Laundry Building, East or West Barn if you need a shelter or a base for your group.



We have a number of way-marked walks to suit all ages and levels of stamina. Dogs are always welcome on the estate but we request they be kept on a lead in the gardens & play areas and owners should clean up after them.

The gardens are fully accessible but care should be taken with wheelchairs & buggies in the play areas and on the ‘Red Trail’. Unfortunately, due to its terrain, the ‘Yellow Trail’ is not suitable for wheelchairs or buggies.
