Henge Estate welcomes well-behaved dogs. There are plenty of local walks for dogs as well as a one-mile path around the whole estate. The property is not fully enclosed but is secluded and the house sits some distance from main roads. Dogs need to be on a lead if walked through the horse fields on the Groggie Way or Hinde’s Leg paths.

The Manor House has a downstairs shower with spray for large dogs and a laundry sink with a spray hose for smaller dogs. Dog towels can be provided. 

A professional dog grooming/clipping service can be booked at The Stables on Henge Estate prior to your arrival.



Guest’s horses are welcome, subject to availability. There is a livery and stables at Henge Estate, where a box and feed may be available on-site, or at the neighbouring stables. 

Nearby bridle paths and the Salisbury Plains are great for hacks. 

Contact us for more information and to book your horse for a stay. 

“We’ve just returned from this stunning place having spent a week there with our friends and children. What a stunning place! Victoria has such amazing taste and has decorated every room impeccably. The attention to detail is lovely, providing anything and everything you can need. There was so much space, beautiful gardens and grounds, and a great location. We particularly loved the children’s play area which kept our little ones entertained for hours whilst we sipped our wine!! We would absolutely recommend this to anyone wanting a UK break with family and friends. I don’t think you’ll find better hosts. Sarah
