About Us

Boarding Kennels Location

Secluded in London’s greenbelt, you will arrive by driving through our fields to arrive at our spacious resort. Car parking is available surrounded by our lovely gardens creating a relaxed and calm environment.

Upon entering our reception and waiting area you will meet one of our professional staff who will register your dog and make a note of your specific requirements.

Your dog will be taken to their large two roomed suite with adjoining private garden to begin enjoying their stay. The suites have been designed to provide a restful environment where your dog can put their paws up after an eventful day using the facilities.

While you are on holiday you can have the confidence that your pet will be taken care of exactly as you desire, room service is available for those who want to give their friends something a bit special.

Our luxurious doggy spa with a range of delightful treatments is available and for the more sporty dogs who love to socialise, our doggy day care is the ideal spot to burn some energy. If however, your dogs a little more laid back, their peaceful garden could be the ideal spot to relax.

If you prefer that your dog doesn’t mingle with other dogs then you can book lovely walks in the beautiful surroundings including the Aldenham Country Park.

Puppies have their own play space where they can grow and learn in a suitable area.

If your dog is more active and needs to burn off some extra energy we can provide a programme of exercise to suit:
