Secure, safe spaces in Alconbury & Bassingbourn to enjoy the countryside with your four legged friends!


Dogs have always been at Holly Lodge Farm; Jack Russells, Weimaraners, Cocker Spaniels, Border Terriers and now a Norfolk Terrier – Basil! We have lots of space and great walks on our doorstep, but with new puppies to train and bring up, we ventured to our local training classes and found that many people are frustrated with the lack of space where they can take their dogs off their leads and let them run free, hence Holly Lodge Dog Fields was born!

After 5 amazing years running our fields near A,conbury we are now expanding to new locations! First stop Bassingbourn, Low Farm SG8 5NT

Secure Dog Paddocks

The paddocks at both our sites, Alconbury and Bassingbourn, provide areas where many different dogs can practice their training, feel safe and secure from other dogs or simply run free with the wind in their ears.

In order to provide all of our customers with the full amount of time that they have booked, we offer 1 hour sessions in the field. This hour includes a full 50 minutes of play time and 10 minutes at the end of the session for owners to clear up any toys, pick up after their dogs, and vacate the car park in time for the next customer. We ask this of our customers so that everybody has exclusive use of the paddocks.

Our Paddocks

The dog paddocks were created to provide safe spaces for dog owners to come and enjoy the countryside with their four-legged friends, without the worry of other dogs or people. The purpose-built fields are the perfect place to bond with your furry friends.

The paddocks are located on our farm just outside of Alconbury (PE28 5XZ), Cambridgeshire, and at Low Farm in Bassingbourn (SG8 5NT). Click the link below for our location.

“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”
