Our Dog Hotel Suites

Our modern luxury kennel suites have all the requirements for the family canine holidaymaker. Each single and double bedded luxury suite comprises of a lounge area with tiled floor, adjoining bedroom with bed and soft fleece blankets, plus access to en-suite individual covered outdoor play area with views over endless cornfields. Whilst it is perfectly possible for guests to laze away the hours in their luxury suites, there is also an abundance of social and sporting activities awaiting them outside in our secure and spacious grass paddocks or paved courtyards. All guests are exercised individually, or in their family group.

Dining at Ladybird provides our guests with individually prepared meals made to each guests specific requirements and served directly to each guests room. These culinary delights should be enjoyed and eaten at leisure. All meals are prepared in our brand new kitchen, which has been specifically built and fitted to enable us to fulfil all the needs of our guests. The ladybird team of carers create these goumet dishes freshly from our vast range of top quality pet foods, including items such as complete dry foods and chicken. Guests who require veterinary prescription diets must arrange for their owners to provide the required quantity for their stay at Ladybird.

What Our Customers Say

My two Cat Grace and Zeus stayed for a week with Ladybird Cattery. They were clearly well cared for. They had everything covered for us and the price included all their food for the week which is great. I highly recommend Ladybird Kennels and Cattery.

Our 3 dogs and 5 cats stayed here at the beginning of January for a week. I was extremely nervous about leaving them but they were so well looked after. They truly seemed to have a lovely time and although happy to see us when we got back they certainly weren’t desperate to leave the lovely ladies looking after them. It was such an amazing relief to see that they were treated so wonderfully and we really enjoyed seeing the photos and videos posted on Facebook whilst we were away. We’ve already booked them in for our next time away and although I’ll miss them it will be good to know they are in such safe and gentle hands.

We only trust the caring staff here to look after our 1 year old sprocker. They give him plenty of cuddles and exercise as well as care for his grain free diet. Coco comes home so happy after his stays, they are amazing x

100% recommend it here, our dog Bert gets so excited as we enter the gates of ladybird and cry’s to get out of the car, when he sees the amazing staff here his tail is wagging ten to the dozen and he can’t wait to go off with them and have fun. It’s so good for us because we can enjoy our holiday knowing he is enjoying his xx
