Our Four Legged Friends
Here at Bents, we welcome well-behaved dogs in our undercover plant area, outdoor spaces and outside dining areas*, including around our covered walkway and lakeside stroll. The Pet Place and café, Lakeland and Trespass Stores complete our dog friendly shopping destinations. You’ll find fresh water stations throughout these areas and, for something a little more satisfying, you can dine together at The Pet Café which has a selection of delicious treats for both human and hounds! For those looking for a little exercise on your visit, the 5K Windy Bank Wood trail, located to the rear of our Centre, provides the perfect place to let them off the lead. And if your furry friend finds a muddy patch (which with some dogs is inevitable!) you’ll find a cleaning station located outside The Pet Place where you can rinse them off ready for the car. So, whether it’s a Pupcake or a Cupcake, sniffing out a new toy or browsing our homegrown plant collection, there’s a reason for you both to enjoy a trip to Bents.

Advancement in online security has created by the two major card suppliers to ensure that the card used to make payment online is genuinely held by the cardholder which reduces the risk of online fraud.

As part of this scheme, when you purchase from us, you may be required to enter a secret phrase or password that you have previously registered with your card issuer, or you may be required to confirm other personal details about yourself. All of this information is checked directly with your card issuer to ensure that the genuine cardholder is the person trying to place the order. If your security details are confirmed as successful by your card issuer, you will be smoothly delivered back to our website and your order will be confirmed. Back to top
