One of my dogs loves it, the other hates leaving home but seems happy there. Beds are raised, two rooms, warm! Run by dog people who really make a real fuss of the dogs. No guilt boarding kennels. Well worth the price.

They always take good care of the animals, and it's a lovely place.
We've taken our babies Pride and Sam to stay at Hampton Hayes for just for a day while property searching in the area. We found the staff very friendly and helpful.Our boys don't normally stay in kennels but I wouldn't hesitate to take them there again, maybe next time for a longer holiday. The kennels are spacious and very clean and the dogs are looked after by dog caring people, so putting your mind at rest when leaving your little family members for a few days. 10/10
Bev & Barry amaze me how they manage the farm & the kennels. The kennels are always immaculate and the attention of Bev & all her staff is perfect. They know all the dogs personally and take an interest in every way, looking after their every need. Very well done. I would never go anywhere else.
Our cat Milly has been to Hampton Hayes several times now. We are very impressed with the cattery; she has a lovely comfortable chair to lie in and soak up the fresh air, a lovely large warm area to sleep in, plenty of space to play with her toys and feathers which we take with her. Bev and her team keep the cattery spotless, Milly always comes home smelling as fresh as daisy, a true sign of how well she is cared for and her space kept clean. At home she likes a few prawns in a morning, so we take some with us and Bev willingly gives her some. Bev's very flexible opening and closing times indicate her willingness to accommodate her customers. I would recommend the cattery to anyone.
Having left our two cats at Hampton Hayes many times, we can rest assured that when we return the cats are not stessed but very happy. They are extremely well looked after and we look forward to leaving them at Hampton Hayes in the future.
My pets are my babies and I would only send them where I know they will get the same treatment as they receive at home. After viewing several local kennels and catteries I was not happy, but when I met Bev, Barry and their staff from Hampton Hayes they put us at ease straightaway. After a very pleasant holiday, where I had put my trust in their hands, I will never consider anywhere else for my pets to stay. Highly recommend this place to any pet lovers.
The owners give dedicated care to all the animals, they are conscientious and treat the animals as if they were their own pets. I wouldn't hesitate to take my beloved dog there. The dogs are walked every day twice a day. The kennels are very clean and well designed for all their needs. The kennels are set in a stunning location - taking in the view over the valley is an added bonus! It's always nice to be greeted with a friendly smile too.
We are off on holiday soon and have been really worried about leaving our dog. We have looked at a number of kennels in the area and none compare to Hampton Hayes! We went to meet the owners Bev and Barry who put us at ease straightaway. They suggested a trial run and our dog went in Saturday. By the time we collected him on Sunday he had had several walks and was allowed to play in the woodland play runs. He was really happy. Bev, Barry and their staff actually really care about the dogs and this stands out. Our dog was happily wagging his tail when we collected him. Finding a good kennel is such a relief and we will definitely be going back.
A clean, bright, happy place to leave your pets. I would recommend it to anyone. I know that I can relax when I am away as my girls are safe and happy. All their requirements are noted so I know they get their treats. A great place to holiday your pets.
We have used Hampton Hayes Kennels frequently for both short and long stays. On all occasions we were very impressed with the service and their care and friendly approach to our dog. A very reassuring factor when leaving your pet. Many thanks to the staff.
I regularly take my cat to Hampton Hayes. Tthe staff are friendly and helpful, I know my cat is cared for well, she has a warm room to sleep in and also a large area to roam in the fresh air where she is safe and has company of other cats without the contact. We always enjoy visiting the cattery and seeing the donkey and sometimes there are a couple of llamas, not to mention the wonderful views - they are breath taking. It is situated away from the main road so my cat feels safe too (my cat hates traffic - it makes her nervous and anxious).
What more can I say? This cattery is perfect and I would recommend it to anyone.
Our dog meg loves going to Hampton Hayes kennels. It's like being home from home; she gets excited when we get near, which is very reassuring for us to leave her somewhere safe, immaculately clean, bright, spacious. She is looked after, exercised well & has a great bath, groomed to come home. Meg would recommend this place to any of her four legged friends.
These kennels are very clean and tidy. The staff are friendly and know a lot about the care of cats and dogs. They treat all of their customers as one of their own, and give them as much attention as possible. These are kennels that I would recommend to everyone who wants their cat and/or dog to be looked after by the best around.
Have used Hampton Hayes for a couple of years now and would never go anywhere esle. The staff are brillant, I could not ask for more. My dogs and cats really enjoy there frequent stays and I could not leave them anywhere else - I would rather stay at home.
BRILLIANT!! This cattery was recommended to me by my vet as some of their staff take their cats there. I would definitely use this cattery again; I have had some awful experiences at other catteries but this one has the best facilities and service. The ladies that work there are kind and helpful. You can tell they are cat lovers.
"My name is Flossie.... I lived at Hampton Hayes for quite a while until I found my new home. I go on regular holidays back to Hampton Hayes. I love seeing Bev and the staff. I get paid lots of compliments about my appearance and manner. It is lovely to see my friends, I feel safe and well looked after. Hampton Hayes has changed my life - I cannot thank them enough for their patience and outstanding quality of care. If you are looking for a 'ME' then visit them straightaway. If you are looking for a holiday, then get your owners to book you in.... The best hotel I know of!
Hold on... my owner would like to speak to you - Well, Flossie is a great character. As a recent widow, Bev found me the right dog. Bev listened to what I needed, didn't force a dog on me, just let me take my time to choose. It was the best thing I ever did. I go out on great walks, meet lots of people and have basically been forced to be brave enough to love something again. A recommendation from the heart.
We would like to highly recommend Hampton Hayes Kennels and Cattery. As an owner of a very nervous and old dog, I was dubious about leaving him at all when we had the chance of a holiday. After speaking to somebody who recommended Hampton Hayes, we went to visit them and was instantly impressed. They have their very own 'quiet cabin' especially for dogs like ours who may feel intimidated by the younger and more livelier dogs in the main kennel. We have just returned from our holiday and our dog is fine. We would never hesistate to send him there again.
I did not think I would be able to leave my cat with anyone, but after seeing the facilities at Hampton Hayes Kennels I knew she would be having an all inclusive experience compared to my half board holiday. Once I had met Bev and Barry I was so relieved because I just knew they would treat her like a friend come to stay, rather than an animal they were being paid to look after. Would really recommend.
Thank you both for looking after my cat so well. We were very impressed at the level of care and the facilities at Hampton Hayes and will definitely be recommending it to all of our friends and family with cats and dogs.
The thing I love most about the business, is that to the people who own and care about the animals it is more than that. The animals are treated as their own, with lots of love and attention. The Kennel assistants are kind and very attentive to the animals and always give the animals lots of attention and hugs.

The kennels are immaculate, my dogs come home clean and not smelling of "kennels". They don't have upset tummies (are fed on the best food), the staff are friendly and the dogs are walked twice a day.
I have recently adopted a dog from hampton hayes and I was very impressed withhow well run and how well the dogs are looked after. We took our new dog for a walk round the brilliant outdoor enclosed play area. I am very pleased that I chose our dog from bev's and would be more than happy to leave my dog there boarding if we ever had to.
