A dog enjoying some exercise in the dog field.

FAQ’s

Is there parking? ๐Ÿš—

There is a dedicated car park just for you at the dog field. Pass through Somersham Village Hall car park and onto the farm track straight ahead – our car park is clearly signed, immediately on your left.

Is the dog field easy to find?ย ๐Ÿ”Ž

Yes! The dog field is right on the main road on the village edge. From Ipswich direction you will come from either Bramford, Gt. Blakenham, Claydon or Sproughton and then through Little Blakenham. Go Frolic is the very first turning on the left, once past the sign that says ‘Somersham’. It’s only a few minutes from those villages.

From Somersham/Barking/Elmsett/Offton direction you will find the field just after Somersham garage, on your right.

How will I get in to the dog field? Is the gate locked? ๐Ÿ”

On arrival pull up to the gate. Don’t be early! Get out to open the gate and then clip the gate back. Drive into the car park and then return to close the gate. You are now securely enclosed and are ready to go! You can leave the gate open as you leave.

Do you have disabled access? ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿฆฝ

We don’t yet have fully accessible facilities, but we are planning to put down some smooth concrete in the future, to help with this. At the moment the car park is surfaced in road planings, rolled flat. It may be possible for a wheelchair to pass across. We’d be very happy for you to come by and have a look, in advance of a booking, to check if it’s suitable. Just drop us an email to arrange: somersham@gofrolic.co.uk.

Can I come with lots of dogs? ๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿ•โ€๐Ÿฆบ ๐Ÿฉ

Yes, you can bring up to 10 at once. You can bring up to 3 dogs on the basic hire rate of ยฃ10. This could cover three households who each own a dog, or a single household with three dogs. If you want to bring more than three dogs to the dog field, please select the relevant number during the booking process. Bringing 4 to 10 dogs incurs a higher fee of ยฃ14.

If you want to bring more than 10 dogs, please get in touch using the form on our contact page.

Can I meet friends at the site?ย ๐Ÿ‘ญ

Yes of course! You can meet or bring friends but please bear in mind the size of the car park โ€“ it holds approx. 6 cars.

How do I change a booking I have made?ย ๐Ÿซค

You can cancel your booking if itโ€™s more than 48 hrs in advance of its start point. Please refer to our Cancellation Policy. You need to do this yourself on the Accounts section of the website. You can then rebook a more convenient slot.

If your booking is less than 48hrs away, cancellation is not possible. However, you could allocate your booking to a friend. If this is the case, please could you email us with the contact details of the nominated friend, inlcuding an email and mobile phone number. This is so we can communicate with them in case of any issues.

What if I canโ€™t attend my booking at short notice?ย ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

If you know more than 48hrs from the start of your booking, that you cannot attend your session, you can amend your booking online. Please refer to our Cancellation Policy. Refunds cannot be given within 48 hours, but you could nominate someone else to use your timeslot. Please update us with the contact details for your nominated person.

I noticed a problem today, what should I do?ย ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

For anything urgent, such as a hole in the fence, please call Lucy immediately on 07905 791207. For less urgent matters please drop us a line on somersham@gofrolic.co.uk and we will aim to address the issue and respond to you within 24 hours.

Do I have to bring poo bags?ย ๐Ÿ’ฉ

No! We provide scoops for you to remove your dogโ€™s waste into one of our composting bins. We see no need to add more plastic waste into the world when dog poo composts well, especially when mixed with a scoop of sawdust/woodshavings/ash/soil mixture which we will add this every few days.

You can choose to bring COMPOSTABLE BAGS. These can be tossed into the compost bins. But absolutely NO PLASTIC POO BAGS may be left on site.

There is a hand santiser station for you to use if you wish. And a shoe scraping tool for if the worst happens!

Is there water avilable on site?ย ๐Ÿšฐ

Yes, there is a fresh water tap and bowl at the very top of the field.

In summer there is a paddling pool for cooling off in!

What if it rains?ย ๐ŸŒง๏ธ โ˜€๏ธ

There is currently a small undercover area that you can escape the rain, or indeed the sun, and we plan to add a permanent shelter later in the summer.

Could I book the field for an eventย ๐Ÿฅณ

Yes of course. We are happy to facilitate events such as breed club meet ups, litter mates reunions, dog birthday parties (yes we can do party bags!), you name it! Just drop us a line to start a chat: somersham@gofrolic.co.uk

If no one turns up at the end of my booked session, can I just stay a bit longer?ย ๐Ÿ˜

Yes of course. We are happy to facilitate events such as breed club meet ups, litter mates reunions, dog birthday parties (yes we can do party bags!), you name it! Just drop us a line to start a chat: somersham@gofrolic.co.uk
