Full Terms and Conditions:


Set in 5 acres of scenic private land, you can relax in the knowledge your dogs and cats are being cared for in a safe and secure environment, and, unlike other boarding kennels and catteries, all the income from the boarding section of Happy Landings goes towards funding the valuable animal rescue work undertaken. This means your pet is being cared for by trained animal behaviour specialists and, as It is our main source of funding, you’re not only boarding your animal, but helping contribute to the rescue and care of other animals less fortunate than your own.

Our fully licensed and modern dog kennels have underfloor heating, toys, treats and large runs and they also have the use of our exercise paddock during their stay to run off excess energy and to play.

The cats have the use of our warm, cosy cattery where each pen is individually heated with a variety of toys to play with and regular grooming days. They take turns to have the run of our secure long corridor where they can have more space to run, or just to sit up on the scratching posts admiring the view of the cattery garden. Once the cat has settled with us, they can also enjoy a turn in our fully enclosed cattery garden.

Our team simply adore animals so we will make sure your pets are kept happy and safe during their stay.

Prices for all size dogs are £28 per night and a 10% discount for a second dog sharing the kennel: £53.20 for 2 dogs per night.
Prices for cats are £14 per night and if sharing with a second cat £20 per night for 2 cats per night. If sharing with three cats the price is £25 per night.

These prices apply for Spring/Summer 2023, and full payment will be needed at time of booking.

  • During high season, i.e. school holidays because of the high demand for our limited number of pens, we may request a minimum stay of four nights for all bookings.

Drop off and collection times are between 10.30am to 12.00pm and 2pm – 4pm Monday to Friday. Weekend collections and pick-ups are available by special arrangement and a small donation to our charity will be requested.

We are happy to provide food and bedding but if you feel your pet would be happier having their own then you are welcome to bring that with you for us to use.

Your pet should be in good health when they arrive for boarding. Please let us know if they have any medical issues before arriving. The welfare of your pet is very important to us and if we feel that we will be unable to care for your pet then we will ask you to seek other arrangements.

In the event of a medical emergency, we will take your pet to our regular veterinary practice and will contact you, or your emergency contact as soon as possible. Any costs must be covered by you in addition to boarding.

The welfare of our staff is extremely important and, if we feel your dog is potentially unsafe, then we will ask you to seek alternative arrangements or, if your dog is currently boarding, will ask you to collect your dog early. No refund will be offered in these circumstances.

Additional information:
• An up-to-date vaccination certificate, including a Kennel Cough vaccination for dogs (which must be administered at least 14 days before check in), is required before your pets will be accepted for boarding and under no circumstances will pets be accepted for boarding without this. For their benefit they also need to be wormed and treated for fleas at least two days prior to their stay and if a dog or cat is found to have fleas the person responsible for collecting the pet will at the time of collection be liable for all costs of treating the animal and surrounding environment considered necessary.

• Please let us know if you have any changes in circumstance as any cancellations received less than 14 days prior to booking will be charged in full.

Dear old Oscar is a little dog with lots of additional needs. Happy Landings is the only place where Oscar can go when he can’t be with me. Although in reality there probably isn’t anyone else on the planet willing to look after him, there isn’t anyone else I would trust his care to either. Staff have been so helpful & flexible, taking Oscar in at short notice and keeping him extra days. When we arrive he pulls on the lead to get in & see ‘his mates’ so I have no concerns that he is missing me when I’m away! – Cathie Owen

Our dachshunds are not just ‘looked after’ at Happy Landings – they are ‘loved’!
We have been boarding our 2 miniature Dachshunds at Happy Landings for the last four years. They have stayed for as long as two weeks during holidays and single night ‘sleepovers’ when we are due to be out late.
The dogs always drag me into Happy Landings, wagging their tails and greeting the Kennel staff with great enthusiasm! They never even look back when trotting off happily to the kennel. When we pick them up, they have always been happy and healthy. – Sara J

Our four beloved cats have boarded in Happy Landings Cattery and the care they receive is exemplary. The staff are true animal lovers and are always keen to ensure the cats are settled and happy in lovely clean cosy pens. Our cats are on special diets and 3 out of 4 are on medication which the staff are able to administer. When we collect our cats they always seem settled and relaxed. Our cats are booked in for a fortnight this Summer, which means we can go on holiday safe in the knowledge that our treasured pets are receiving the best of care. We would highly recommend! – Best wishes, Cobi Snelson

We have used Happy Landings to kennel our dogs for many years and are always very happy to leave our dogs in their excellent care. The staff are very dedicated and work so hard looking after all the waifs and strays they take in. As an example, when one of our dogs staying with them became extremely ill, just as we were boarding a plane, they looked after her whilst we were away. They took her to the vets and one member of staff even took her home for the night because she was so worried about leaving her overnight. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.” – Yours Sarah

Gracie our cat was born at Happy Landings and it is here she comes when we go for holidays. Gracie always receives a warm welcome and we totally trust that she is in safe hands. We go away knowing that she will have free time and playtime and will be looked after by those who care deeply about the animals in their care. – Janet
