Friendly approachable trained staff, superior accommodation and play areas. Mackie was well cared for, met many new canine friends and socialised well. Staff were wiling to help by continuing his training, He was clean, groomed when collected, happy and full of energy on returning home. I know of no other kennels in the area offering this first class service. Thoroughly recommended. Well done Hiliary and Abi.
Our spoilt house rabbits Pippa and Mr Saunders were extremely well looked after and we really appreciated the texts and photo’s we received. We have already booked their next stay here. Thank you.

Grassgarth Luxury Kennels near Kendal. We placed our dog, Dexter, with Grassgarth kennels, when on holiday in the lakes. Picking him up each morning and returning him every evening. We where apprehensive as to how he would react to being in kennels as 4 months ago he reacted badly to being in a rescue centre kennels. Our concerns were unfounded, Testament to the way he trotted of happily to his kennel each evening. We would recommend Grassgarth Kennels with out hesitation
