Presingoll Farm is a 4th generation family run farm with a small pedigree herd of the original breed line of South Devon cattle from the 1930’s. The farm has diversified and in response to the climate emergency introduced solar power in 2015 originally supplying Presingoll Farm, Presingoll Caravan and Campsite and Presingoll Barns and latterly the Railway Yard Business Park. In the light of the carbon agenda we have moved to minimal till systems to retain carbon in soil and cropping to sequester carbon. This includes planting crops that attract bees and support wildlife and are pleasant for people to look at and smell. We are actively supporting the Forest for Cornwall and are planting a variety of indigenous trees across the farm, which might take a while to grow given our windy, salty sea air! We have been working with the project team to deliver the St Agnes leg of the Saints Way which will pass around the Paws at Presingoll Farm dog exercise field. The field commands stunning views over St Agnes Beacon towards the sea – we hope you enjoy it when you visit us.
To make use of this stunning location, and to provide dog lovers with a fantastic space, to exercise their dogs safely & freely we have developed one of the fields into a fully secure enclosure. The concept is to provide a safe space for off the lead fun, making it perfect for recall and training practice, ideal especially for those dogs less inclined to be social or to come back – tested by Hetty and Maisie our two Beagles who have been known to be afflicted by this occasional lapse in concentration! The field is totally wriggle and jump proof fenced (quality tested by the team of Beagles and their best friends Eddie (the runner) and Tog (the jumper).
There are some poles for weaving practice and some play tyres for interest and a seat for owners.
The field is accessed by a key - pad entrance security and is easily accessible off Station Lane (now locally known as piggy lane as you will frequently see our pigs snuffling happily). There is plentiful parking spaces and turning.
The field is checked daily and we pride ourselves in maintaining it to ensure a clean,
tidy and well- maintained space. We have kept the section of the old Chacewater to Newquay branch line as a wild area for super sniffing and interest.
A dog waste bin and water are provided. Please pick up ALL poo to ensure the dogs and owners using the field after you also have an enjoyable visit.

Here at Paws at Presingoll Farm we take the health and safety of our customers very seriously. Our regular customers will be aware we have hand sanitiser outside of the gate and encourage everyone to use it before touching the key pad and on leaving the field. We also wipe down the gate handles with a Covid compliant anti – viral spray daily.
Following the Govt announcements today there continues to be no specific guidance re dog exercise fields but we believe the measures in place provide the levels of safe use we would all expect.
Ongoing global studies continue to demonstrate the key factors that influence patterns of Covid infection and the mitigations that can be taken to reduce the risks of transmission. Risk factors include close proximity, long duration and poor ventilation.
So in the Paws field there is PLENTY of ventilation and PLENTY of space (therefore, with those two mitigating factors we believe our customers can safely book 30 and 60 minute slots).
With the guidance provided today we will see a gradual relaxation in lockdown restrictions but we ask you to continue following Govt guidelines and that you remain vigilant in the use of the hand sanitiser when using the field.
