Each run has its own individual block-paved parking space which is 4.5m wide by 8m long. The gates to the run will be open when you arrive. If they are closed or somebody is still in there at your allotted time, please call 07976724501 or email us. Park up ensuring you don't drive onto the grass. Before letting your dog out, close the gates to the run. Only then are you secure to let your dog out.

Please check your confirmation email as this will advise you which of the two runs you have been allocated. Both runs are the same size "Orange" run is the first run and the parking bay is to the right of the Green barn and "Yellow" run’s parking bay is to the left of the barn.

Each run is constructed using 6ft fencing around the edges and a solid fence down the middle, the perimeter fencing is “deer” type and is specifically designed for animal safety.

Deer fencing is designed to bounce if animals run into it; which is why we use it for our runs. However, very small dogs - especially if they are still puppies - may be able to wriggle through the 10cm x 15cm square gaps.

Perimeter fencing is just under 2m high. We think this is enough to secure most dogs, but if yours likes to climb (believe us, you’ll know if you they do!) be aware that a 2m high fence may not be enough to keep them in the run.

Due to current COVID guidelines we are having to insist on a maximum of three dogs per booking and they must all be from the same family / bubble. (Top Tip) register all the dogs when you apply for free membership. If you have more than three dogs please call to discuss your specific needs.

All dog breeds are welcome as long as they are from the same human family / bubble. They must be micro-chipped, have vaccinations (kennel cough is optional), and on a regular flea and worming programme. If they are in season or not castrated, that's not a problem. We have a 3-dog maximum per booking rule. If you have more than 3 dogs, please contact us

We're trying to keep things simple, however if you have requirements outside one of our rules or conditions, we still might be able to help. Just contact us to discuss your individual requirements, on 07976724501 or email us.

We must follow what COVID guidelines are in play at the time you make your booking. For example, our pathways are only 1.2m wide, so some distancing may not be possible. Please note this will be your responsibility to follow the specific National or Local Rules / Laws at the time of booking.

We must follow what COVID guidelines are in play - so, no, not at this time. All dogs must be registered and live at the member's house or be within their bubble.

Yes they are, however we do have some rules: They must be under supervision at all times. They are only allowed in the area you have booked and for the time you have booked, They must not climb on any of the fencing. The Runs are set up so your dogs can run and play as the first priority.

At this time: 4. And in line with COVID regulations you must all be from the same family / bubble. We also must insist on only one car per booking, as you will park your car within the run you have booked and there is space for just one vehicle.

The gates to the run will be open when you arrive. If they are closed or somebody is still in there, please check your confirmation email as this will advise you which of the two runs you have been allocated. Both runs are the same size, "Orange" run is the first run and the parking bay is to the right of the Green barn and "Yellow" run’s parking bay is to the left of the barn.

If you're at the correct run and it's your allotted time please call 07976 724 501 or email us.

If your booking is during the hours of darkness please turn on the lights for your run when you arrive. The switch for the run lights is on the "Field Rules" board by where you park your car. When you depart, all we ask is that you turn the lights for the run off before you leave.

Dog mess... if it's your dog's, please pick it up. We provide the bin which is emptied daily. Don't worry if you forget your poo bags, there will be spares within each parking area. If it's a messy one (as a dog owner, you you know what we mean!) please pick up what you can and then use the watering cans provided to do the rest.

If you find any mess or digging that isn't from your dog, please "flag it" for us. There are yellow flags in each corner of each run for you to place next to the offending area; and please text us on 07976724501. Thank you!

Simple! It's all about exercise and play for your dog and you! Feel free to bring balls, frisbees, training aids and even basic agility equipment. While the dogs play on the grass, we ask the humans to stay on the pathways - especially when it's wet or frosty. This helps the grass remain in perfect condition, which in turn means the dogs get to run and play on clean, green grass - so no muddy feet all round!

Drinking Water: In the interest of hygiene can we encourage you to bring your own water bowl if you think your dog will need a drink during your booking, fresh water is available in each run (in a watering can) and should these be empty there is a tap at the front of the barn.

Firstly, thanks for being so vigilant! Report it straight away. Fences, gates, entrances, pathways, parking... whatever you feel might not be quite right, let us know and we will fix it. Please call 07976724501 or email us.
