Ash Tree Dieback Information
Hatfield Forest is not a contaminated area.  However, to help prevent the spread of the disease, the National Trust and Forestry Commission have put together an information leaflet as well as a poster on what precautions to take. See documents below.

We welcome dogs at Hatfield Forest as long as they are well trained by responsible owners.There are a few simple things to remember when you are out dog walking:
  • Keep dogs on leads: near the cows (walk round them in a wide circle), near the fenced sheep grazing areas, in the Lake Area and whenever you see signs. 
  • If you can not call your dog back instantly, it must be kept on a lead.  Always keep your dog under control.  Your dog must be kept in your sight at all times, especially in the wooded areas. 
  • Clean up after your dog and use the dog bins provided in the main visitor areas.
  • Please remember that our Rangers reserve the right to ban irresponsible dog owners.
  • To allow your dog to chase livestock or disturb wildlife is an offence.

To report an out of control dog, please call the Duty Ranger on 07808 889556.
