It is with much sadness I write to inform you that my beloved husband John passed away suddenly on Thursday 28th March 2019. He ran the kennels with me for the last 18 years & got to know many of our customers. Before the kennels John played first class cricket for Somerset moving on to become a first class cricket umpire for over 20 years. He lived life to the full and was a true gentleman who will be missed by all.

1st October 2018 - PRICE REVIEW
With effect from today (1st October 2018) our prices have been increased. The last time we reviewed pricing was in 2010 and with cost increases from all our suppliers year on year we find it impossible to continue at our current tariff. We now charge £16.50 per day per dog (an increase of £1.50 since 2010) and cats £10 per cat per day (an increase of £0.50 since 2010). We hope you understand our need to review our costs, this will ensure the continued quality of our services & supplies for your dog or cat when they stay with us. We still give discounts for more than 1 pet boarding with us at the same time. See our booking info page for details.
