About Go Frolic
and Our Dog Field

Go Frolic is a private dog field in scenic countryside in Somersham, Suffolk, a few minutes from the A14, and 15 minutes from central Ipswich, Hadleigh, Capel and Needham Market.

On offer is 3.5 acres of securely fenced grassland on our family farm, exclusively for your dogs off-lead freedom! The field is open dawn to dusk, 7 days a week and each hire slot is 55 minutes long. Our private car park is easily accessed from Somersham Village Hall.

At the start of your time slot (don’t be early please!) drive up to the secure gate and climb out. Enter the code you will be given at booking confirmation and open the gate, securing it so you can drive through. Once parked up please shut the gate behind you before letting your dog out. You are ready to go!

If you are early for your timeslot, please wait in the village hall car park. Your slot will end 5 minutes before the hour. You must leave the car park no later than this time.

In the field you will find benches and picnic tables, including undercover seating for wet days.

What’s our ethos?

Exercise in a green space enhances not just your physical health, but your mental health too. We believe in the benefits of contact with nature to make you feel good. We want to enrich your outdoor time with your dog, so you won’t find our field is mowed to within an inch of its life. It’s still early days but watch out for insects and birds in the longer meadow areas, sunflower strips, bird feeding stations and bug hotels. Your dogs will also be happy about this slightly wild approach. We want them to enjoy undertaking their natural behaviours and just Go Frolic!

Planet-friendly dog field

Go Frolic is looking for ways to help the planet. We have thought carefully about the unnecessary plastic waste associated with poo bins (not to mention the fossil fuels used in their emptying). Therefore, with our customers’ cooperation, all dog waste will be composted, with with other biodegradable material, and spread on the farm in our hedge and woodland creation projects. Little poo shovels are hanging on posts around the dog field – please use them to deposit your dog’s deposits in our blue composting bins. Hand santiser will also be available! Please help us make this low-impact approach work.
