We would be very pleased to welcome you and your friend for a visit, providing them with a chance to meet us and have a good look round so that they feel more settled when they come to stay.

We have purpose built roomy, individual kennels and indoor cat pens with central heating and lighting, keeping your precious friend warm, safe and cosy. Visiting dogs are taken out in the field for a good walk twice per day, ensuring good human interaction, and for the extra energetic we have an enclosed play area they can run around in.

We recognise that just like us, pets have different food requirements and we ensure all diets are catered for. If your pet is struggling to find a diet to suit, we might be able to advise on the best food for them, as we have tested just about every brand over the past decades, restoring health and vitality to the most poorly rescue dogs and cats that have sought our help

We take short, long term or daily bookings, though we do advise you to book early for peak holiday periods to avoid disappointment. We can provide a basic bath and blow dry (available by appointment at time of booking).
