A fantastic space for dogs and owners to enjoy with far-reaching views over open farmland. It is surrounded by stone rubble walls which are approximately 0.8m high. We mow the Dog Paddock approximately once a month during the warmer months using an agricultural cutter yet allow the edges of the dog paddock to grow naturally as long grasses. You will find carefully placed dog bins around the paddock area.

We also have a smaller, secondary Dog Paddock named 'Little Legs Dog Paddock' which as the name suggests, is specifically for dogs with little legs!
