About Us

Boarding Kennels Location

Tarbay Boarding Kennels

Kennels, Grooming Parlour, Puppy Classes and Dog Training ALL onsite.

A Country Retreat for Dogs situated in acres of a beautiful Windsor private estate.

Dogs are walked four times a day in large grassy paddocks.

All dogs are exercised in the safety of our fenced fields and woodland dog walks and this gives them time to enjoy the freedom of the countryside away from their covered runs.

All of our staff are extremely experienced and dedicated to the well being of your pet.

We offer a caring and friendly environment.

The Tarbay Centre is used and accredited by the local and regional RSPCA and vets recommend us.

We are Members of Dog Groomers Association, COAPE & CAPBT (dog training), Pet Care Trust and British Kennel and Cattery Association.

New clients can come between Oct and May for a free day crèche day boarding trial to meet the team FREE OF CHARGE.

Services include:

• Pet pick up and drop off Taxi service
• Day boarding crèche at £15 per day

Tarbay Centre Boarding Kennels in Berkshire

About our staff, knowledge and experience:

Elisabeth and Mark bought the Tarbay Centre in November 2009 and have made significant improvements to both the kennels and cattery.

Elisabeth's god parents have owned a kennels and cattery of 40 years in Yorkshire - Deepdale Lodge.

The RSPCA visit the kennels everyday to pamper and cuddle the animals in their care.

Chloe Phillips, Kennel Manager, has been with the team for 7 years.

The Kennels are inspected, approved and licensed by Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

Boarding Kennels Sleep Accommodation

Boarding Kennels Exercise Run

All NEW kennels replaced in 2015 as part of a £300K site development. We have a variety of Kennel sizes include ones large enough to take a family of four to various sizes to meet all needs.

Each kennel indoor area is heated and well lit.

The bedroom area has a flap to the dogs individual outdoor covered run where you dog can enjoy views of the stunning Windsor woodland setting.

About our Kennels

Each kennel has an indoor and outdoor run.

The indoor bed areas are heated in winter and cooled in the summer.

We play either ‘Heart’ or Magic’ radio to them all day.

The adjoining individual external runs are spacious and gives them the option of keeping an eye on what is going on in the courtyard areas or retreat to the privacy of their own room.

The runs are covered which ensures they stay dry in the winter even on the wettest of days and cool in the summer.

Each extercise area is either sand or Astro Turf - supplied by the same company as Battersea London and Windsor.

Unlike many kennels we ensure that every day every dog is exercised a minimum of FOUR times a day in the grassy paddocks which overlook Windsor Forrest.

We feel this gives them time to sniff, scratch, stroll and sunbathe, others of course ‘charge around’ with the various exercise balls, toys and tyres.

We will warn you that this can mean your treasured hound may be a little muddy on collection, but we feel, what’s a little dirt compared to a fun filled frolic. 

Bryony the groomer can help wit ha bit of a tidy up if required.

About dog exercise with our Boarding Kennels:

Exercise & Play in Boarding Kennels

Unlike many kennels we ensure that every day every dog is exercised and has one to one play time with the team a minimum of  four times a day in the exercise paddocks which overlook Windsor Forrest.

We feel this gives them time to sniff, scratch, stroll and sunbathe , others of course ‘charge around’ with the various exercise balls, toys and tyres. We will warn you that this can mean your treasured hound may be a little muddy on collection, but we feel, what’s a little dirt compared to a fun filled frolic - but for a further £15 we can wash and groom prior to collection.

Unlike many kennels we have four large paddocks to exercise the dogs which means they have a lot longer time to play and be stimulated. Our evening shift starts at 4pm until 9pm and thier explict role is to play, cuddle and chat to the dogs.

About dog walks/playtime with staff

Dog Walks at the Boarding Kennels

Tarbay Centre is in the heart of Windsor forest which provides a safe, quite and peaceful haven to exercise the dogs (well perhaps the occasional plane overhead). The nearest busy road is over .8 of a mile away as we are securely tucked down Tarbay Lane. The team walk the dogs either individually or two at a time, we will ask you if you would like your dog exercised in isolation or with a paddock doggie buddy.

We don’t let the animals off the lead once they are out of our secure private area, just in case they spot and give chase to one of the many deer which roam the grounds. T

Tarbay Centre nestles in four and half acres of privately owned land, it even includes its own private wood and dell all for your dog to enjoy during is stay at our country retreat.

Each guest has their own heated bedroom with a raised bed complete with fleecy vet bed. This leads to their individual run where we have a further raised bed to ensure they have plenty of space to rest or play. In addition the large exercise paddocks is where each can charge about or just potter and play to suit the day and mood.

We provide food, beds, bedding, play things, balls, leads and bowls.
When checking in for the first time we will just ensure we are fully appraised of your treasured pets medical history, anything you would like us to keep an eye on, daily routines and any training you would like us to keep up with on your behalf.

Everyday each team member completes a checklist of feeding, welfare and general notes which are logged on their individual registration forms so we can keep a little eye on anything.

We can administer most medical requirements without additional charge.

Map, Directions, and Driving Distance & Time

Tarbay Centre Boarding Kennels,
Tarbay Lane, Oakley Green , Windsor , Berkshire SL4 4QG


The advantage of our location is a rural setting down a long leafy (often bumpy) private lane away from busy roads however it does mean we are a little tricky to find. Once you pass the Green Oak (very nice restaurant) on your left we are the next turning which is Tarbay Lane and if you travel to the very end of Tarbay Lane (Approx .8 Mile) you will see our signs and wooden gates. Come through the gates and to the top and reception is on the left had side.
