Spoil your dogs while you're away and have peace of mind!

Pet Cottages is situated in a rural setting with goats, peacocks and chickens to look at, your dog will have lots to keep them entertained.  Twice daily they are let out to a large exercise area of grass and sand with caring staff monitoring their health and mood. Separation anxiety can be a problem when animals are away from home so we take special care and attention of each animal. You can rest assured your pet will be carefully monitored and loved. We believe that dogs need human touch and love more than anything when away from home.

Caring staff low

Please inform us if your pet is aggressive with humans or other animals. Morning and evening cleaning/feeding time is very noisy with all the dogs interacting with each other while they are let out to romp and get exercise. We only let dogs out together that are of the same temperament and age, that is why we have 6 different exercise areas - this enables us to let every dog, whether social or not, to have an hour or two every day on the grass.

But from 12 – 2pm is rest time for the dogs, cats and staff. It is amazing how quiet everyone is during this siesta time, so we discourage collecting and dropping off during these hours.

Our aim is to give your pets a spacious, yet cosy homely environment when they stay with us, at an affordable price. We ask you to bring along a blanket from home for home smells and comfort, the dogs settle a lot quicker.

All our kennels are large enough for the dogs to roam around with a separate cottage/bedroom to sleep and snuggle up in. All have shade from large trees and shrubs.

In winter, on request, heating is provided at an extra cost.

All costs will be charged to the client. We reserve the right to charge you a nominal travel fee if necessary.

Please inform us if your pet has any potential health problems so we know in advance what to look out for.

Long term accommodation

We have become renowned for long term stays. Dogs are happy and well adjusted when they leave, even after being with us for 18 months. No-one likes to be away from their pets (never mind out the country) while relocating and trying to find accommodation, but you can be assured that we will give your dogs their much needed love and attention and will keep you updated with video and everything to do with your pet while they are in transit.

A discount is offered for stays over 30 days.

For after all, he was only human. He wasn't a dog.”
