Good for families

Very well kept Site with a wonderful dog exercise field.

It was a pleasure to stay at Modbury with our four legged family member who had a wonderful time on the beautifully maintained and extensive dog exercise field. It is ideal for exercising an active dog playing fetch with a ball, and also for socialising with other dogs and having a good game of chase(the dogs that is!) This is very important to us as it provides a safe environment where dogs can have fun off the lead without the worry of long un-mowed grass and undergrowth, which hide the threat to a dog's health from ticks, fleas, grass seeds (these get into eyes, ear and paws) but most dangerous of all provides a hiding place for adders. Full marks to Modbury Wardens for providing this superb area. These days we always contact Club Sites direct to make sure that the on site dog walk is a good field which is properly mowed before we book. We do not go to sites with these dreadful fields with long grass and weeds etc with a few "pathways" cut out. These get worn and muddy and enables the more anti social to leave their dog's mess behind. We know there are other dog owning Club members who also share these views.

We agree wholeheartedly with the review above.  We also have commented on the problems caused by leaving the grass etc. growing wild.  On most sites now there are plenty of other spaces for leaving it natural but not the dog field.  We have a Border Collie who loves to chase and retrieve a ball. Haycraft is one of our favourite sites but the pathways are very narrow and the playfield has a huge expanse of wild meadow without encroaching on the field itself therefore no need to leave the dog field wild, also there are other parts of the site growing naturally. Carnon Downs has pathways now but very wide so much better.  Why change something that worked perfectly for years. Well done to Modbury.
