N Atkinson

“We can’t rate Pen’s amazing doggy hotel highly enough! Our two have been in other kennels before but a neighbour recommended Pen. We went and had a look round first and were more than happy with the facilities. Pen is so kind and caring with the dogs and nothing is too much trouble.”

J Henley

“Our spaniels Olive and Margo have just come home after their two week holiday with Penny and the team. They spent their first evening home happy, buoyant and looking shiny, fit and healthy. I couldn’t recommend their kennels more highly. They take such great care of your precious family members. What a great thing to be able to go away knowing they are in such great capable and loving hands. Thank you team!”
