About our Kennels

Luxury Kennel

Our latest addition the Luxury Kennel was opened in December 2010 and provides spacious, airy accommodation with the benefit of temperature controlled under floor heating throughout.  Temperature probes embedded in the floor beneath the kennel units enable local control of the temperature in specific kennels, so whether the guest is young, active and less likely to feel the cold  or more mature in years and requires an additional level of warmth it is simply a matter of the touch of a button to provide the temperature the guest prefers.

Using our experience of being pet owners over the years, when it came to designing a new kennel unit from scratch we made space a key design requirement. All the kennel units are as a minimum double kennels, whether occupied by a single guest or two.  We also made family accommodation a priority and built family units some of which are more than capable of housing four to six of the largest of breeds together with ease.  So whatever your needs and requirements, be your pets puppies, young and highly active, or in their golden years and like a little peace and quiet we are able to offer unmatched facilities and service.

Standard Kennel

The Standard Kennel building was completed in the mid 1990’s and is constructed of brick and block with cavity walls and double glazing under a tiled roof (just like a modern house) to provide the quality of care every dog should be offered as a minimum.  Centrally heated the unit provides excellent value, with good accommodation in a safe hygienic environment with direct views of and access to the exercise fields and the opportunity is there for those who like to see other dogs running but direct contact is prevented by the boundary fence.

All guests, standard or luxury are provided a dog bed and clean washed bedding (unless provided by the owner) to ensure the guest is comfortable and has a enjoyable and relaxed stay.  Should the weather turn inclement and the guest gets wet (or soiled) when exercising, bedding is changed for clean dry materials and the guest towelled-off.

As all cat owners know, cats are discerning and shrewd customers who think only the best will do (and rightly so, we think), so when considering the layout for the cattery the customer view point was paramount. Cats like to look and watch, from the security of the perfect perch, which offers comfort with shelter, all our cat units look out over the front garden of the house which attracts the wildlife the Kent countryside has in abundance. Wyncot has a long boundary fence with the Wye National Nature Reserve and woodlands which attracts a diverse and extensive concentration of birds and animals both day and night.  As owners of a little piece of wonderful countryside we take a keen interest in attracting all forms of wildlife into the garden and surrounding fields and woodland.  To this end we expend time and money in bird and small animal feedstuffs so that our feline guests can appreciate the visual montage that plays across the garden every day of the week, summer and winter.

Laundry Services

As we provide clean washed bedding for our canine and feline guests we have invested in industrial washing machines and dryers; Our industrial washer and dryers can accommodate large loads of 10kg and are available for customer laundry items at very reasonable prices. If you don’t fancy using your household machine to wash your pet bedding or have items that you would equally not like to put through your machine we can wash them for you.

Average soiled load washed & dried 

Small load £4.00     Large load £7.00


Heavy soiled load washed & dried

Small Load £8.00     Large load £10.00

Dog shampoo and blow dry bathing service

We provide a dog shampoo bathing service for dogs staying with us, or if in between visits just book a daytime appointment to bring your dog in for a wash and brush-up.  Just drop them off between the hours of 10.00 – 10.30 and collect after 15.30 the same day.

LA Life

Ella and Marron are our two grand old labradors of 13 years and have been enjoying their three month stay with us they love nothing more than a cuddle and having biscuts then having a good mooch out in the field and a spot of sun 'baking' hits the spot as they do need to get acclimatised as they are jetting back home to LA California to live out their golden years. They will be sadly missed by all the staff we have all grown very found of our resident old ladies lounging about of thier duvet and wish them all the best.

Freddie Is King Of His Castle


My name is freddie I am a miniature short hair dachshund and I am totally enjoy my six week stay while my mum is in New Zealand. I have been upgraded to the staff room as I'm such a good boy and I know how to work my baby blues with the ladies. I have my own bed next to the heater with all my toys and treats I even get to enjoy the staff's lunch as well. When the weather is nice we go on long walks on the Wye downs and in Kings wood where all my public can admire me and stroke me and stay how handsome I am. After a hard days work I like to relex on the staff's knee and dream about chasing rabbits and sandwiches life is great my mum will be so happy when she comes home to know that I have been enjoying myself so much, roll on another day.

Excellent And Wouldn't Go Anywhere Else!
by Sophie Bates, Kent

Excellent And Wouldn't Go Anywhere Else!

I have been using Wyncot kennels since the start of this year and would honestly say i would not use anywhere else!

My Frenchie Victor is a rescue dog and has always been extremely nervous and scared of new people, sometimes leading to him nipping people. So for the first year of me having him i had to rely on my parents to look after him for short periods of time if i was away.

However, Kate and the team at Wyncot have been amazing! Victor always comes back extremely happy and relaxed and now gets excited when i take him over there!

On the last visit he boarded for a week (the longest time hes been away) and was so excited when we got there he didnt even say bye to me.

My parents picked him up a week later to which he was very happy and seemed to have enjoyed his stay (inclucing a groom!)

Kate and the staff at Wyncot have been fantastic with him and are really helping with his anxiety issues, i cannot thank them enough!

It is without a doubt that i will never use anywhere else as they certainly cater for each dogs individual needs.

An amazing 5 star facility for dogs to relax and have a holiday whilst their owners are too!

First Class Service Every Time
by Ken Wintzer, Kent

First Class Service Every Time

We started using Wyncot last year when sadly our previous kennel's owner passed away. We were not sure what service we would receive as we'd used another kennel in the area which was not that good - but we did the right thing choosing Wyncot. Our two Labradors came back to us amazingly happy and spruced up (as we took advantage of the grooming service too) and we have not looked back since. We have used them several times now and each time our dogs are excited as soon as they get there and don't want to leave! Couldn't recommend enough.
