You are here: Home | Book Secure Fields

Welcome!

We have two fields for hire in Arlingham, Gloucestershire. They are similarly priced and near each other so your dog will be very happy whichever field you book for them. We pride ourselves in providing a fun and stimulating environment for your dog in both of our fields, they are not just areas of grass with a fence around them, they are doggy adventure parks! Don't take our word for it, ask your dog!


Is your dog unhappy around other dogs or struggles when being approached by other people's dogs or the people themselves?  Is your dog old or infirm or recovering from surgery  and you somewhere to exercise your dog without being pestered by other people or their dogs? Has your dog got a poor recall and you need somewhere to exercise them safely or practice your recall training? Is your dog in season and you want to let her off lead without worrying about her getting up to mischief? These are some of the reasons why people love to hire our secure fields; you know you have it all to yourself - no worrying about other people or their dogs or your dog making a run for it!


Weekend bookings get taken quickly so you will need to book in advance but there are usually available times during the week. Have a look at the descriptions below and select the field when you are ready to book.


You might like to know that there are 2 local pubs in Arlingham and both are dog friendly! The Red Lion Pub is just around the corner from the field (and serves posh nosh!) and the Passage Inn is by the River Severn, serving very reasonably-priced food. You can be happy too!

Both of our secure and enclosed fields have the following features in common...

In the map below, please ignore the red marker (there to centralise the view), you want the green tree ones. 

To the lower left is The Big Field and Vimpney's Orchard is the green marker to the upper right.

Introducing "The Big Field"

Weighing in at a whopping 9.6 acres worth of doggy heaven on earth our Big Field doesn't disappoint!


Fenced to 5' 2" with thick hedgerow behind the fencing gives close to complete privacy and security. Located at the end of a private track, you will not be disturbed. Great for more reactive dogs!


Apart from the size, our main attractions are the sand pit, the farmyard agility course, the large natural pond (possibly dry in summer sadly) and a large cooling down trough! Bliss. 


We are working hard to re-wild this field. It has a young orchard, woodland area, an acre of veg patch and a natural pond (with a gentle sloping edge for the dogs to get in/out if they want). Your support is helping us to do this by funding the new trees providing shelter, nesting and food for wildlife. Thank you.


We have a composting toilet in The Big Field.

Sharing Your Booking In The Big Field

We usually allow bookings to be shared in The Big Field but you must get explicit permission from us first. The total number of dogs at any one time should be 5 or less. Once permission has been given, clients should make the booking in their name but for the total number of dogs after sharing so, for example, if you have 3 dogs and you want to share with a friend who has 2 dogs then if approved, you would make your booking for 5 dogs. Please note that you will need to email us the proof of vaccination or titre tests for any dogs that I have not seen documentation for at a New Client Meeting.

Introducing "Vimpney's Orchard"

The Orchard is a sizeable 3.3 acres, fenced to a height of 4' on 2 sides with thick impenetrable hedgerow behind it to a height of over 12' and the other 2 sides are fenced to a height of 6'.


it is surrounded by arable land and is very peaceful, located down a dead end road with the occasional passing tractor. The thick hedgerow means pretty much complete privacy! And its location means it is incredibly peaceful, no busy roads or railways near it!


The orchard is at the stage now where the fruit can be harvested, this will mean that for a few weeks in the autumn, the orchard will be closed to visitors. The field will also close for a few weeks over the summer to harvest the grass and crops. We usually get a couple of week's notice of the closures and will contact any people who have booked and ask them to reschedule their bookings.


Please note the older trees in the Orchard are up to 100 years old and slowly dying off, please do not climb or hang from them or damage them in any way and on windy days, keep your distance from them. The younger tress were planted in 2014, again please do not damage these trees or allow your dogs to dig or damage them in any way.


Sorry but we do not have any toilet facilities in the Orchard.

Sharing in Vimpney's Orchard

We do not usually allow bookings to be shared in the Orchard. Please consider hiring The Big Field if you want to share your booking. Please get in touch if you have any queries about sharing bookings.
