“It was wonderful to see so many people enjoy time with their dogs, from the hilarious Book Your Pet Hay Bale Race which saw BBC's Matt Baker commentate some high octane races, to the fun dog show which saw stand out pooches take home first prize from the Loveliest Lady to the most Fabulous Fella.

“We even had a ball pit just for dogs - which is always extremely popular! We can't wait to be back for 2024!"
