Pooch-Perfect Perks: For Happy Dogs and Happier Stays

At Woodfarm, we know that happy Dogs means happy owners, which is why we endeavour to ensure that everything is Pooch-Perfect. We have spent years building our reputation for being ultra Dog-friendly, and over those years we have continually added to the Woof-farm offer to make your Dog’s holiday every bit as memorable as yours.

As Dog owners, you are well versed in the art of packing your car with everything they need, but with the best will in the world things get forgotten, and sometimes the car isn’t big enough any more! With this in mind, we have done what we can to take care of every eventuality, with a ton of extras just in case.

We have many of these items for every furry friend of Woodfarm, but some of the larger things you may want to book with us if you’d rather not pack them. If in doubt, give us a shout!

So without further ado, here’s what we do to make Dogs, and their owners happy;

Dogs stay completely FREE
In all honesty I don’t suppose your Dog cares about this one, but it does mean there’s more money to spend on treats, which they do care about!

In no particular order, here’s a list of some of the things we’ve taken care of. Just keep scrolling to read more on each;

  • Fully Enclosed Private Gardens
  • Pooch Paddock
  • Mucky Pups Shower Stations
  • Dog treats waiting for every pooch
  • Dog Passports
  • Dog Hamper option
  • Bowls
  • Dog Towels
  • Woodfarm branded Poop Bags
  • Woodfarm branded silicone travel dog bowls
  • Dog Crate
  • Dog Buggy
  • Spare collars and leads
  • Dog Beds
  • Dog Car Ramp
  • Dog Tags
  • Doggy life jackets
  • Doggy First Aid Kit
  • Stair Gate
  • Info on local Vets, just in case

Pooch Paddock

Fully enclosed Dog meadow at Woodfarm Barns
Our four-legged guests have been enjoying our meadow for years. The dogs get to run around in 2 acres, mostly set to long wild grasses and wild flowers, with a path mown all around the perimeter. They go bonkers and make new friends! Take a look at our fully enclosed communal meadow
