      Facilities for dogs

      • Dogs should be kept on the lead while exploring the village, however there are designated dog exercise areas where they can roam free.
      •  These areas include dog bins, making for a stress-free toilet visit. 
      • Water bowls are provided around the village near shops and restaurants so that your dog can rehydrate during their woodland adventures.

      Dog play areas can be located on the map in the local walks section below.
