my dogs had a lovely time being able to sniff and run without being disturbed. best money spent happy dogs means happy owner
Excellent area for dogs . I’ve got 3 beagles and a. Lab and two of my beagles are being trained on recall at he moment so lively place to go . Can relax they aren’t going to escape ! Very good they loved it and much less stressful for me ! thankyou More...
Barnfield Play Paddock, such a fantastic place to relax and let our two dogs off the lead in a secure environment. We were greeted by Karl who made us and our dogs feel welcome on each occasion. Big bowl of water greatly received by our dogs Oscar & Luna. Many thanks for your hospitality. Highly Recommend More...
Lovely safe enclosed but large paddock. We have spent many happy hours walking our elderly; reactive Jack Russell. He was given 3 months to live last September & I’m sure the weekly walk has helped to keep him healthy. Friendly owners who are clearly dog lovers. Highly recommended! More...
Great area for the dogs, easy to find. Secure fencing. Very friendly. Thanks Will definitely use again.
The dogs love free running in the paddock, which is secure and safe. Easy booking we love going here. Highly recommended.
Absolutely amazing place perfect for energetic dogs! Amazing friendly owners couldn’t recommend highly enough ☺️
Jay had the time of his life today, so lovely to be able to let him off and run free, he’s been asleep ever since! Will be back!

A brilliant facility and lovely owners will be using regularly!
Well informed with location and what I’d need . Really well enclosed. Went there with a Beagle X whippet to do recall training and will definitely go back
Was absolutely amazing, was able to take my collie off the lead which I usually can’t do as she’d run off but she was so good and loved being able to run as fast as she wanted and didn’t have to worry about my staffy seeing another male dog as he’s territorial. Such an amazing place and will definitely be back! More...
We were so lucky to find this amazing secure field near to our holiday house. It was just perfect for our two little Houdini terriers, Daisy and Freddie. A big thank you to the lovely owner who was so friendly and helpful and fitted us in at the last minute. I hope we'll be back in the future �� More...
We have two German Shepherds. The young lad (18 months) can be a bit bouncy and over keen to say hello to every other dog we see. The paddock allows us to run both of them and also practice their training in a safe, secure and lovely environment.
The proprietors are very friendly and ensure there is a supply of fresh water for the dogs at each session.
Happy to recommend Barn Field Farm. More...
It's a brilliant and secure place to go with my two springers, they can just run and play like springers do thank you
Brilliant paddock!! Such lovely place! Great for dogs with no recall or ones who aren't as good with other dogs! Friendly and welcoming staff would absolutely recommend! And we are definitely going to be back! More...
Our big boy Mookie absolutely loved running about off lead in the paddock today, and it was fantastic to see him so happy. The paddock is ideal; safely fenced all round and without any passing traffic/people etc, it's the perfect place for our boy. So thank you & we'll be back More...
Brilliant place to come if like me you have a dog that loves to run really secure and most definitely can't escape (trust me if he could he would!)will be back on a day when it's not raining lol More...
Our boys are both rescue dogs one of which can be reactive so to be able to take them to Barnfield where they can run free knowing they cannot escape is just brilliant! Cannot recommend this play paddock enough More...
Alison looked after my dogs for my wedding, we were so glad to find someone so friendly and calming for the dogs, they loved her, we came home to very relaxed context creatures. Thank you Alison, you are amazing!
Taken my pups out to the field a couple of times now. Great worry free environment to let them run loose �
First time at Barnfield this morning and Springer Spaniel puppy Dylan absolutely loved it. Beautifully kept and fenced in and nothing around but the sound of Buzzards overhead and a very excited dog. Ideal for recall and other training - we will be back on a regular basis. Thank you so much. More...
Our first time today with our anti social bull terrier. He never gets to go off lead and this was the first time he's been free as a bird, not even a long line. He was so happy and it was lovely to see. Alison was lovely and very understanding of our dogs issues. Would highly recommend. More...
I can't recommend Barnfield enough...
A wonderful place . The owners are really friendly and helpful and the field is very well maintained and spotlessly clean.
My two big bull breeds were welcomed with open arms and with out a doubt we will be regulars from now on ..
A big fat 10 out of 10 Barnfield, what a smashing place xxx More...
Alison stayed for a week at our home in Weston super mare to look after our 2 little dogs. We could not have been happier in leaving them in her capable hands. She posted photos of what they were up to nearly every day and responded to any messages I sent her. Our house was immaculate on our return and our babies happy. Would definitely ask Alison to help us again. Thanks so much x More...
Charlie had a great time this morning and would of stayed longer if he wasn't so cold! See you in the morning again!!���
I was very wary of leaving my boy with anyone but Alison is so caring and understanding that we were able to enjoy a short break without worrying. Lots of walks later, serving up his raw food, one happy dog! Alison has a wealth of knowledge and clearly loves dogs, thank you xx More...
Having recently located to mid-Devon, Barnfield Play Paddock has been an absolute godsend for us as a multi-dog household. Here we can all exercise, train & have fun together away from livestock, traffic & the public and just relax ... and it's absolute bliss. The only problem ... at the end of our booked session the dogs just don't want to go home. A big thumbs up from us! More...
Thank you for providing such an amazing space to run my rescue Saluki. She had a lovely time today running free for the first time in ages. Highly recommended :)
Can't recommend Alison enough! First time we've left our dogs/cats/house with anyone. We were updated daily with photos of their walks, the house is spotless and all 4 animals are happy!
Absolutely amazing place. My 7 month old husky had an awesome time running loose in the field! Owners are so friendly and it’s a good for the hour of fun you get. Highly recommend this place!!
This is by far the best enclosed field I have ever come across. For our four saluki herberts it was an absolute joy to see them running about without a care in the world. Exceptional and a very inspiring couple who own it. Thank you for creating this superb field xx More...

Wonderful safe facility. Our dogs loved it . Thanks
David WJ Fisher
Fantastic, peacefull and very safe. Lovely place for some time alone training or just relaxing.
Loki had a fantastic time this afternoon. His first time off the lead since we rehomed him a month ago. We will definitely be booking again.
Rachel M Higgins
Myself & Milo had a fantastic time here. It was perfect for him to have a much needed sniff & run around without being confined to a lead. We will definitely be back again soon! Many thanks x More...
Alison stayed in my house to look after my 3 dogs while I was on holiday for a couple of weeks. The dogs were obviously really happy and loved Alison to bits! Highly recommended by me.
First visit and our puppy loved having the freedom to just run. We will definitely be booking in again and again and again. Thank you ��
Brilliant place for my dogs to have a good safe off lead run, especially as one of them is very anti social towards other dogs and they both love the freedom.
Perfect place to let our dog run without having to worry about her escaping! Very clean and Alison is lovely! We will most definitely be back soon!
Perfect safe environment for the dogs to run and have fun! The fantastic four had a lovely time and already looking forward to their next visit.
Thank you very much for the use of paddock the dogs loved it completely shattered now
Lovely secure paddock all my dogs loved it and the back home chilled and happy thank you for letting us come out and use it
It was brilliant me mum and the dogs had a great time and are all tired out now. Recommend this place to everyone
Loved it :) my two babies had a great time :) thank you, will be back x
