Safe spaces 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!

Secure Dog Paddocks

The paddocks at Holly Lodge 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, hose down any muddy paws 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, Cambridgeshire. Click the link below for our location.

​📸 @lucas_petphotography It's Tongue out Tuesday! 👅
​📸 @lucas_petphotography Did you know that North Paddock was our original secure dog field? 
​Before it became a dog field North Paddock was used by Geoff (my dad) to graze his cattle. This was when the farm was still breeding livestock. For various reasons we have moved away from breeding cattle at Holly Lodge and now beautiful North Paddock is enjoyed by all our dog field customers! 💚
We opened North Paddock in 2018 and have been enjoying perching under the big, beautiful Oak, and gazing at the views of the Cambridgeshire countryside ever since!
​We hope you love it as much as we do 😀 Diving into the weekend like…🥳 Smiiiillleee like you mean it 😁 🐶 Happy International Dog Day!! 🥳

We’re smiling here at Holly Lodge cos it’s Thursday and that means it’s nearly the weekend 🥳

We just adore seeing how happy all the doggos are that use the paddocks…thank you lovely customers, and thank you for all the smiles doggos! ❤️ Me and my mini me 🖤🤍

Same, same but different!

“Excellent place to take your dogs for a fun day out. Well organised, clean and safe. A great range of obstacles and toys to stimulate the dogs and lots of space for them to really let off some steam. Clean drinking water and poo bags provided if you forget too! Also a cafe on site with tasty cakes, pastries, teas, coffees, hot chocolate etc. Friendly staff, very welcoming. We will be making this a monthly visit for sure... 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟”

“Great place for the dogs to run around. The owners have thought of everything- poo bags, water, toys etc. Portaloos extremely clean and well-stocked. Cafe had good coffee and delicious cakes. Staff very friendly. Reasonably priced. I don't usually leave reviews, but this was well deserved.”
