James and Sian Bloom


James and Sîan are two really exceptional people. Very kind and obviously massive animal lovers. They looked after my two dachshunds, one of which is quite a handful and they were brilliant with them, really took the time to get to know them and to let them play and get comfortable. I will definitely take my doggies back and highly recommend them to anyone who cares about their pets. They have a big enclosed field for the doggies to play, and their kennels are heated. They also offer a separate kennel with its own private garden so it’s ideal if you have a nervous dog like we do.
Thank you both for looking after our furbabies.

First time I’ve put my cocker spaniel into boarding kennels was dreading it he wasn’t too old at the time he was there for over the Christmas time aswell as we were away on holiday and wow what a changed dog he was when he came home . I explained how we were having problems with him coming back to he’s name etc and when I collected him he was a different dog came back to he’s name , did as he was told,he was well looked after , exercised on a regular basis, he came home happy was well pleased with the way they looked after him . I’m know looking at booking him back there for my August holiday . Highly recommended can’t thank them enough .

Our 9 month old husky loves it here, he stays when we go away on holiday and gets a nice comfy place to sleep in and a massive space to run around in. The owners are lovely and really helpful. Our dog really enjoys going there, we would really recommend it.

Both James and his wife are very friendly and professional. My staffie stayed for the first time this weekend and loved it. Lovely run family kennels.
Have struggled to find a kennels that I felt completely at ease with since our usual one closed. Now I have found them!!!!
Boden is looking forward to his next visit!!!

Highly recommended. Our pup loves going, he always comes home tired and happy. The kennels are roomy, clean and well equipped and in the process of having a huge new revamp which will be fab. The owners are very down to earth, friendly, welcoming and incredibly passionate about their business and it shows with the care and attention they put into each dog, catering for each of their own individual needs. Going there has helped my pup in his socialisation and confidence. Very competitively priced. I never have any worries leaving him there as know he is in good hands and has a great time!

So pleased to have found James and Sian to take care of our pooch while we are away. Amazing setting. Coco really looks forward to her holidays and she comes back really happy. We go away knowing that she will be well looked after. Thank you!

Little Oaks kindly took on one of our rescue dogs in a time of need. Poppy was showing signs of terrible anxiety and fear aggression. Their team worked with Poppy daily without much of our assistance at all. Within 3 days Poppy was Jame’s shadow and was ready to go to a new home. She now lives with a family and hasn’t shown a single ounce of aggression since.
