Terrain: The walks aren’t suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs due to being on uneven terrain. However, if you have mobility issues please do get in touch.
Parking: There is plenty of parking at Bodiam Castle. Due to being a National Trust property the car park is £3 per car, unless you are a member as then it is free.
More: This is a great opportunity to walk within the beautiful surroundings of Bodiam Castle. You will get to experience some stunning views whilst taking a walk with a great group of people.
Those who take the longer route will be crossing the Kent Ditch and depending on the weather this can be muddy so it is best to wear wellies. On the long walk you can also look out for kingfishers, the resident barn owls in their barn owl boxes and see the steam train.
After the walk you can take part in our dog agility and dog show. There will be hot drinks & sausages (veggie & meat) available in the Tea Rom from 9.30am, as well as Hearing Dog merchandise and a chance to find out more about the charity. Please book your tickets now, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Because of the number of dogs expected, we do ask that dogs are kept on lead for the duration of the walk.
Get sponsored and help Oscar become a hearing dog!
We’d really love for you or your dog to be sponsored.

*Any extra money raised will help train more hearing dogs.
A great day out for all the family!
"It’s lovely to see so many local people with their dogs supporting such a wonderful charity. Hearing Dogs help deaf people leave loneliness behind, and the Great British Dog Walk is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the work they do as well as getting your dog sponsored to help raise vital funds." - Rachel Riley, TV presenter
