Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I book for longer than an hour?
Yes, you can book consecutive slots.
No times are showing for a session - what does this mean?
This means we are fully booked. You will be able to book right up to the time of a session if the session is still available.
Help! There's been a double booking!
It is impossible for our system to allow two booking at once. Please double check your time, or pop into the farm shop or call 01423329063 for any queries.
What times are you open?
We are open any time during daylight hours seven days a week. Please note that the dog field is not lit.
Is the field lit?
Is there a shelter?
Yes, there is a shelter with a tap, water bowl and complimentary poo bags.
Where should I park?
Please park in the main Yolk Farm car park and walk down to the field with your dog on a lead. Please don't leave your car until the beginning of your session, in case there is a reactive dog in the session before yours. Please don't drive your car up to the dog park.
What if I am late arriving for my slot?
You will still need to leave the park at the end of your booked session.
My dog is sensitive to loud noises. Should I be aware of anything?
There is a road next to the dog field which is fairly quiet and fenced in. We are in a rural area, so there may be sounds from neighbouring farms.
Can I take my dog around the rest of the farm?
Yes - when not in the enclosed dog field, your dog must be on a lead at all times.
Are the restaurant and the shop dog friendly?
Yes, as long as the dog is on a lead.
Are there any rules for using the play equipmen?
Please supervise your dogs carefully on the play equipment.
Dogs should not be encouraged to jump until they have finished growing (12-18 months depending on the breed) so please stick to tunnels, weaving poles and obedience training until then.
Please also be careful with overweight dogs, or tired dogs. Jumping dogs too young, or if they are too heavy, can result in the early onset of arthritis or other health problems.
If any equipment looks damaged please let us know and do not use it.
Are there toilets on site?
There are toilets in Yolk Farm Kitchen which are available when the cafe is open.
