Ladies and Gents, please be reassured that we are very aware how wet it is at the moment! We have been chatting to other local dog field owners and it seems we are all in the same position ☔️🌧️

Please note that the moment the fields are dry enough to drive on, and in, we will be doing a lot of maintenance to get the paddocks back up to the standard we want them to be…the rain has very much challenged us this winter so far and I’m not sure it’s done yet, but have no fear we will be back and looking sparkling in no time! ✨

Thank you for bearing with us ❤️ 

For your information North paddock is much drier than South!! Bassingbourn is also much drier than South! Social Session fun! 

After listening to feedback from all of you with regard to our social sessions we have made the following changes…

Saturdays midday - this session will now be for small and medium breed dogs

Saturdays 1pm - this session will now be for large and Extra Large breed dogs

Look forward to seeing you! We are very lucky to have some talented photographers amongst our customers! 

Thank you Sammy! After much consultation with insurance and legal companies we are pleased to be able to announce our XL Bully Policy for all Holly Lodge Dog Field sites...

Dogs under The Dangerous Dogs Act (1991) must comply with the following in order to use our fields...

⭐️ You must provide us with your certificate of exemption and liability insurance certificates for your dog, please email these to info@hollylodge.org at time of booking

⭐️ The dog MUST be neutered

⭐️ The dog MUST be micro chipped

⭐️ The dog MUST be kept on a lead and muzzled until inside the field and until the outer gate is auto-locked. The dog MUST be placed back on a lead and muzzled when returning to the car after a session

⭐️ We will operate a 1:1 dog to handler policy. One banned breed dog to one handler. All handlers MUST be over 16.

We will continue to support all owners of banned breeds as we recognise the importance of dogs being exercised properly, however we will be strict on the use of our fields in the interest of safety for all customers. Anyone found not to be following our rules will be banned from using the fields in future. 

Thank you 
Emily Monday boooop 👃🏻

“This is a review of the cafe only, I didn't use the 🐕 field. I 🚴🏽‍♂️ there with a group of other cyclists. The cafe is set in a new, bright, clean building. Plenty of room inside and a lot outside. There was an area with 🚴🏽‍♂️racks 👍. The toilets were modern and clean. I was left with a good impression as I approached the counter, there were plenty of scrumptious looking 🍰🎂 and savoury vittles. I did have difficulty in choosing. The staff were friendly, helpful and they took the order quickly and efficiently. Our food and drinks were delivered quickly and all of the orders in the group that I was in were correct 👍. The ☕ was good and my 🍰 was delicious, Indeed, I bought a second one to take home for my wife (I hope she doesn't want it😁). The 💵 were also very reasonable. So 💯 for the cafe. The only reason I've given it to four stars is that it's in a very remote location. However, it is worth the diversion.”

“Nice tucked away remote cafe. It's very very dog friendly , we dont have one and was fine regardless. Also know this is a popular stopping point for cyclists. The cafe itself is nice if slightly small inside but smart huge outside areas when warm enough. The counter service was efficient and friendly, coffee fine and good to see a few vegan options (soup and a hotpot on my sunday visit) so good to see. Would return”

“This is the best dog field and so safe. Rosie had a fantastic time running after her toys. Recommend 10/10 and the cafe was so nice too. Food was delicious and service brilliant.”

“What a delightful establishment this is. My hot chocolate was probably the best I've had on my travels - the milk was a perfect temperature and the chocolate had a richness and a depth which was delicious. The sausages were excellent, very tasty, and the roll was made of good, wholesome bread. The dining area (outside and in) is also a delight. I'm looking forward to my next visit already.”
