Assistance dog facilities

Assistance dog exercise facilities

The site is home to farm animals, as such dogs must be kept on their leads. There is a large field along the River Wye at the bottom of our access road where dogs are walked off lead locally. This is around 2km from our site.

Other assistance dog facilities

We can offer water bowls for dogs and a woodland area for toileting.
