“Looking for a secure, safe place to take your dogs for a good long run, Holly Lodge Farm is the place to go. Make sure you book abit in advance as the slots fill up fast due to popularity. My dogs love it here and we will always come back. Reasonably price too!! def better than other fields half the size with poor ground too that charge more money for multiple dogs”
