What is the availability and how can I book?
You can book, manage and cancel sessions via our website, just head to the “Book” tab to get started.
How much does it cost to hire the playground?
You can hire our playground for private use from £9.50 per hour or from £7 per hour per household for a group session. All sessions allow a maximum of 4 dogs per household as standard but please contact us if you have more than 4 dogs in one household.
How secure is the playground?
It is each client’s responsibility to observe the fencing of the playground before each session to ensure they are happy with its security. The fencing is approximately 5 foot high and the entrance gate is approximately 4 foot high. We monitor the fencing regularly but due to the natural environment we ask all clients to remain vigilant when hiring the playground as we cannot accept any responsibility for your dog escaping the playground.
What is the area like?
The playground is located in a quiet area towards the end of a no-through road. The playground has a good proportion of its perimeter screened partially by trees and/or hedging which offers more privacy during the summer months when the trees and hedging are in leaf. There is a public bridleway situated parallel to one of smaller sides of the perimeter, however this side is partially screened by trees, hedging and brambles. The bridleway isn’t usually in frequent use but there is a chance you may see other people walking dogs or riding horses down the bridleway. There is a sign outside the entrance to the playground requesting that people do not approach the gate or fence whilst the playground is in use.
Can I bring a friend/family member and their dog along to my session?
We offer 2 types of sessions at Four Paws Adventure Academy; private field hire and group field hire. Private field hire is for use for 1 household only with up to 4 dogs allowed within that household. Group field hire is priced per household with up to 4 dogs allowed within each household. You can book a session with up to 4 households via our website but if you would like to enquire about a session for more than 4 households, please get in touch. Each household will need to complete and sign a registration form and agreement before they can use the playground.
How do I cancel a session?
You can cancel your session on our website but you must do so with at least 24 hours notice prior to the session starting, this is so we can offer the session to someone else waiting to book. If this notice period is not provided, 50% of the agreed rate will be charged for the cancelled session. Cancelled sessions will be refunded in full or part depending on the notice period provided or an alternative session can be offered at the discretion of Four Paws Adventure Academy.
What is the address for the playground?
Our playground is situated in a quiet rural location in Cople, Bedford, only 2.5 miles from the A421, 5 miles from the A1 and 13 miles from the M1. Once you have made a booking via our website you will receive a confirmation email with the full address and directions for the playground.
