About Us

Excellence In Pet Care Since 1988


Ladybird Kennels & Cattery was built in the early 1970’s at the same time the A12 was constructed, flattening the original house to the site. Although our facilities were modern in their day we have worked hard over the years to maintain the high quality by modernising and up dating our facilities to ensure the highest standard of care for our guests.


Ladybird has been owned and run since 1988 by Cynthia who has worked in every aspect of this business from the bottom up, which has amounted to 30 years experience of animal care. Cynthia has also bred and shown Ragdoll cats and along with husband Peter has shown Gordon Setters to champion status. Peter helps with the kennel maintenance as well as running his own business of 30 years ‘Kennel Sales’ (a specialist agency selling boarding kennel and cattery businesses throughout England, Scotland and Wales)

What Our Customers Say

Our Staff

Ladybird kennels is run like a family business, although the staff are not blood related, having worked here for many years we have become a family. All the staff have spent years at colleges and universities in order to achieve the many qualifications they hold in order to qualify them to do the job they love (all certificates are on display in reception) Being avid animal lovers and owners themselves the staff treat all the guests at Ladybird with the same level of love and attention they do their own. In fact they get to know the pets in their charge so well they can remember each guests little characteristics and habits which helps them settle in quickly, and feel more comfortable and relaxed on return visits.
