A short walk to the Sparkford Spar Shop (400 metres) with your dog will enable you to pick up your morning paper and some dog food at the same time. The Spar have a small hatch outside the shop to enable dog owners to purchase goods without entering the shop. Alternatively, dogs can be tied up outside whilst you shop. The walk has a continuous pavement and most of the road is covered by a 30 mph speed limit. Should you wish for a longer walk, the Queen Camel village shop provides a more challenging terrain and can be accessed either down the hill or across fields. This walk is approximately a mile in each direction.
Should any dogs suffer from injuries or a poorly tummy during their stay, there is a good vet at Castle Cary (5 miles). For mucky pups and pampered pooches, there are several dog parlours nearby.
We ask that dogs are kept on a lead at all times whilst on the Park in order to respect the needs of other patrons and that dogs are exercised off the Park. There is a Council dog bin opposite our entrance at the bottom of the road in order to dispose of waste. We sell spiral dog anchors in our camping supplies shop situated in Reception to enable your dog to remain safely with you whilst on our Park.
Long Hazel Park welcomes all well behaved pets and have accommodated a wide range of animals. Over the years we have met many cats, rabbits, parrots, love birds, ferrets and even giant snails!
Regretfully we do not offer dog accommodation in our Blackforest Lodge or Tingdene Lodge due to customers with pet allergies. The only exception to this rule is for guide dogs.
