Boarding at Elm Cottage

We have recently built custom designed luxury boarding blocks for any dogs that are in need of longer term accommodation. These holiday dogs are with me and my dogs all day at the crèche and taken home to a private fully heated and insulated room at night. Therefore you know we can cater for all pampered pooches even in the coldest winter times. You are welcome to bring your dogs own bedding and food to keep everything as normal as possible and you can view the photos whilst on holiday to check up on all the fun and games your pal has whilst you are away.

The hotel blocks are situated within a six foot fenced woodland area with under wired rabbit netting and even six foot gates that are locked. This means that even the most excitable dogs can run free for exercise with their friends. All rooms are under floor heated and have Poly floors not concrete. All rooms are fully decorated like your own home and fully furnished with soft bedding. You are welcome to bring along your dogs own bedding too. Both hotels are fully alarmed, and the runs at the back are fenced and roofed, so no chance for an escape. Your dogs will always come to the crèche, a two minute taxi journey, every crèche day. Sundays is the day of play for all holiday dogs in the woodland area with Helen and Chris and the Brown family canines. All runs are closed up at around ten at night with a toilet break in the woods before tucking in for bed at night (unless you prefer your dog to have access out at night). Our Woodland exercise area is lovely and cool on hot days so your dogs can have lots of fun even when the weather is hot. As we have a small capacity for holiday boards but a larger day crèche, you know your dog will get special treatment. Also there will be lots of different people and new dogs every day to meet, so there will be no time for stressing out about where their owners are. 

Please note although our day crèche is on the airbase we take them home with us in the evenings. Everything is designed around your dogs needs and safety, no need for gimmicks, just a day full of sniffing, snuffling, playing, running and socialising with friends both canine and human. We provide a comfy, secure, hygienic, private space for relaxing after their day of play.
