We love Jeskyns and regularly walk our dogs in the Orchard. We meet lots of friendly people and dogs and it is great for socialising the dogs. Dogs can be off the lead and have a good run and play and the signposts clearly state "dogs off lead". However, our walk was spoiled recently by a cyclist who came up behind us ringing his bell. Our dogs were away in front of us so my husband politely asked the cyclist if he could wait whilst we put the dogs on their leads so they didn't get in his way. The cyclist was then very rude and told us our dogs should be on leads anyway in the Orchard. We know dogs can be off lead there but can you clarify what the situation is for cyclists there? It clearly states the paths are footpaths and dogs can be off leads.

Thank you for posting your comments. To clarify, dogs are allowed off lead in the orchard area (south of Jeskyns Road) so long as they are always under close control. Cyclists are allowed to use the surfaced tacks but should always give way to pedestrians. Sounds like the cyclist was a bit impatient and rude - luckily most of our visitors are more polite so we hope you don't have to encounter him again, but do get in touch if you have any further issues with him.

I run a local parenting site and had heard really great things about Jeskyns so visited with my children to try it out. Have to say we loved it! Perfect for all ages, my two are 21mths and (yrs so hard to amuse both equally! Love that it is buggy friendly, play areas great and fab cafe. Really lovely place to visit and can't wait to come back again, we also loved the Stickman trail and beautiful views! Will be added to my website so other families can enjoy too!

My Partner and I had our second visit to Jeskyns Park on Sunday and I am so relieved and grateful to see other owners with Huskies and Malamutes! We have two Akita puppies and are desperate to get them socialised with other dogs so when we found out there is an "official meet" every sunday 1pm - 3pm in the pen we were so happy! We were welcomed with open arms and everyone is so friendly and it was very professional with a lady wearing a High Vis Vest. We highly recommend anyone who wants to socialist their dogs to visit this park. It is beautiful and offers so much for both our dogs and us. Highly enjoyable experience and can not wait to return!
