Dartmoor Dog Walking Field

With great reluctance, we have to close the field for at least the next few months while an appeal against planning refusal for change of use takes place.
Unfortunately, it is considered that the field has a "detrimental impact on the landscape," and as a dog walking field it cannot justify being located in the open countryside.
Thank you for your business; we hope to be able to welcome you again, but that decision is out of our hands.
Best wishes, Andy.

A warm welcome!

The Dartmoor Dog Walking Field is located between the village of Widecombe-In-The-Moor and the forests of Bellever, near Postbridge.

Book yourself and your dog for an hour’s off-lead exercise away from livestock and nesting birds in our beautiful 5-acre meadow adjacent to moorland. With views across to Bellever Tor, you will have lots of reasonably level space to run, retrieve, chase and play with your furry friend.
