How big is the field?
Approximately 60m x 40m x 2 as we now have two fields side by side, you can use either field, it is completely your choice, nobody else can book the same time slot as you. It is for your sole user. If you arrive and find others using it please call us so that we can sort the situation out. Please see note below regarding lights in the fields.
Is there space to park?
Yes. There are 2 options.
Examples: If you have one dog, park in the bays provided, secure your dog and used the small gate to gain access to the secure field.
Or if you have a few dogs, open the larger vehicle gate and reverse in and close the gate.
Please ensure both gates are secure before you release the dogs.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND TURNING IN THE CARPARK AND DRIVING OUT - NOT REVERSING as you will be going directly onto a busy roundabout.
Please take extra care exiting the site.
Will there be any other dogs in the field?
Your booking is for your exclusive use of the field, however you are welcome to ask one or two of your friends and their dogs along.
We ask that everyone sticks to their session booking times and leave the field promptly, ideally just before their session has ended, returns their dogs to their car as soon as possible.
The field is regularly used by K9 NorthLan Dog Walkers and on some occasions we can introduce your dog to some suitable doggy pals if you wish.
Please message us to discuss.
Is there shelter in the field for bad weather?
Yes there will be a covered deck and seating area with spectacular views.
There is also natural tree cover down one full side of the field and we will add other structures to stop our wonderful changeable weather from spoiling your fun.
