We offer a comfortable, cosy and loving home environment for your dog

At the Dogs’ Frolics Holiday Cottage, your dogs will be the only animals in our country home.  Ian and Lesley-Anne are on hand all day, so they will receive individual attention.

Their feeding, exercise and sleeping routines will be maintained, using their own bedding, food, leads and toys.

Your dogs will experience none of the stress associated with boarding kennels, such as continuous barking, whining, unnatural living conditions, risk of cross infection and aggression.

A warm welcome awaits you prior to booking which can then be made via phone or email.
