More About our Kennels

Kennel Suites

Accommodation at Elmtree is ‘all suite’ with each kennel coming with its own separate leisure and sleeping areas. Each of our dog guests enjoy a private, fully covered exercise area where they can exercise throughout the day and a separate quiet area where they can settle down and relax. Each suite has been designed to keep guests as comfortable and contented as possible. They benefit from a temperature controlled environment that ensures the suites are cosy in the winter and cool in the summer and all have an outdoor aspect. We have a number of suites that are equipped with ‘Pet Watch’, an online webcam viewing service, for owners who like to see how their pet is getting on (this feature is charged at a cost of £3.00 per day).


A well fed dog is a happy dog and we cater for all dietary requirements. We provide only the highest quality pet food to our guests and our brand of choice is James Wellbeloved, a complete natural hypoallergenic dry food that provides a fully balanced diet. It comes in a range of flavour varieties which are rotated throughout a guest’s stay to ensure maximum anticipation and enjoyment at feeding time. We appreciate that some guests will prefer wet foods and this is also catered for. We are also happy to maintain preferred feeding regimes. With this service owners are required to bring their pet’s food with them.

Wellbeing & Welfare

We all love going on holiday but for some encountering new and strange surroundings can be a daunting experience. We want guests at Elmtree to feel immediately at home so we encourage owners to bring with them favourite items such as toys and bedding & blankets so their dog feels as comfortable and relaxed as possible. At Elmtree we care passionately about our guests and will treat your dog as our own giving it all the attention it needs to ensure it settles in quickly and enjoys its time with us to the full. Enjoying time with us might include a session in our Spa where guests can enjoy grooming, bathing and manicuring services.

Chauffer Service

For owners whose schedules make it difficult for them to bring their dog to and from Elmtree we have introduced a chauffeured ‘collect and return’ service. Guests are brought to the hotel in the comfort of our specially adapted air conditioned vehicles by members of our team who specialise in animal transfers. Please ask for details.

Security & Safety

The security and safety of guests is of paramount importance to us. We have CCTV cameras throughout the hotel that are monitored from reception during the working day and have a constant security presence throughout the night and on Sundays when, except for prearranged pick ups, Elmtree is closed to the public.
