Terms & Conditions

You and your dogs

Please ensure that your dogs are adequately vaccinated to use a public place. If your dog is showing any signs of illness do not use the secure field and be respectful of other pets and their owners.

At your own risk – uneven ground, long grass

You agree that your use of the secure field is at your own risk, and agree not to hold ‘Hinton-in-the-Hedges Secure Dog Walking Field’, its owners or staff responsible for any injury to you, your family/friends or your dogs arising from your use of the secure field. The secure, fenced section of the field is a large outdoor space, and contains areas of uneven ground which could be concealed under long grass or other vegetation, has overhanging branches from trees around the edges which may fall or have fallen and could contain other hazards consistent with the countryside.

You agree not to let anyone else into the secure fenced area, other than any friends or family members you have brought with you to enjoy walking your dogs.

By bringing friends or family, or sending somebody in place of you, you agree that you take full responsibility for their safety and for ensuring that they abide by these terms and conditions at all times whilst using the field.


You are welcome to bring your children to the field, but they must be supervised at all times. You are responsible for making sure that they do not injure themselves or break any of the terms and conditions. Please be aware that the secure area has not been made child safe, and the field beyond is private property. Certain elements may pose an additional hazard to children (non-child proof dog poo bins for example).

Buildings and specific obstacles

You agree not to enter any buildings or other parts of the farm, including the rest of the field and to keep at a safe distance from any horses that may be passing. Please ensure your dogs are in your car or on their leads before leaving the secure fenced off area.

The Fence

Although we will be inspecting and maintaining the fence regularly, holes or other damage to the fence may occur from time to time due to a number of reasons including digging by dogs or other animals, falling trees or branches and general wear and tear. If you become aware of any issue with the state of the fence, please let us know immediately so that we can make other users aware and so that we can fix it as soon as possible. We cannot however, take any responsibility for any dog escaping the field whether or not this is through a defect in the fence, and regardless of whether we have notified you in advance or not.

Using the field

It is your responsibility to pick up all of your dog’s waste and dispose of it in the mess bins provided or please take it home.

To enter the field go through the wooden gates where there is off road parking. Please leave these gates as you find them.
The secure area on your left must be accessed through the metal gates. Please use the ENTRY CODE YOU WILL BE PROVIDED WITH 1 HOUR BEFORE YOUR BOOKING TIME. Drive in to the secure area and shut the gate behind you, before letting your dog(s) out of your vehicle. This way we can help to ensure the safety of the dog(s), nearby road users and members of the public.

Please ensure that you do not arrive too early for your booking and vacate the secure area promptly leaving it secure at the end of your booking time. Please padlock the gate behind you as you leave the secure area.

There is ample space for off road parking inside the wooden gates, please do not park on the road and block the gate way.
