I cannot recommend HAYFIELDS highly enough . We were let down badly by a couple of kennels previously, having 5 dogs mosly rescue we needed to be assured that our dogs were happy. Enter Nick and staff!!! All our dogs loved him on sight even the very nervous
otterhound who had been badly treated and was frightened of men! A brilliant, well run hotel , and exercise and good food guaranteed. We are thinking of booking a room ourselves next year!!
Hello there, we have two Bichon fries doggies and wondered if you have room for them both from 17th Dec to 3rd January, I have been having a good look and your doggy hotel looks amazing!! Their names are Marley and Lola, they need to be together. Please
can you let me know asap so that I can book etc if you have room for them, They are lovely dogs thanks a lot, Vicky Dix.
Geoff and Nicola Smith
Thank you so much for taking such good care of our beloved girls, Poppy and Rosie for us. We honestly can't thank you enough for allowing us to leave them with the confidence that they will be very well looked after. They look forward to seeing you all
Hi, what a brilliant idea; we are considering getting a dog for our disabled son. We were worried about our holidays..you have a solution ! Just lovely, and so nice to be able to look, and get to know you. It's lovely to meet you, and Good Luck with your
Hotel, which we may well need in the future. Best Regards Gillx

A massive thank you to Nick and the team for looking after our 2 working cockers so fantastically well - we had no doubt they'd be in not only safe and experienced hands but would come home happy having had a fab time with you all....and they clearly have.
It was their first time away from home overnight but other than us missing them heaps, it obviously didn't faze them one jot. We're so very happy to have found you guys - as others have said you really have taken the worry away from leaving our such adored
doggies whilst we're away, we wouldn't leave them with anyone else! Belle and Digby send a huge thanks too and look forward to seeing you all again in September.
A very,very big thank you for taking such good care of Jasper and Enzo.You have made an enormous difference to our lives. I was so worried about leaving Jasper and Enzo with anyone that my husband and I were missing out on family holidays. I then heard
about Hayfields and I can't praise you enough, you have cared for my two boys so well I'm not sure if they wanted to come home!! They obviously enjoyed their time with you, they seem so relaxed, play with you affectionately and follow you around. I bet they
think we're so boring compared with the good,fun time they have had with you. I'm sure they are looking forward to the next time and will be so excited to see you again......Thank you from all our family for taking the worry away and caring for our precious
very much loved boys.
Thankyou Nick, Vic & Jo from the bottom of my heart for taking such great care of Harvey, Bonnie Bow & Chloe. Like many of your guests, I too feel we have found the Home from Home for my three Munchkins. From the guilt feeling of leaving them at Hayfields
to the amazing sight of picking them up 17 day's later & seeing how happy all three were. They were so relaxed, happy & content, beautifully groomed & not a care in the world, Bonnie even went back to her room from the office to seek out her toys. I cannot
emphasise enough how great Hayfields are with my Two Maltese & cheeky little Griffy. We will be back in a few weeks time with all three, I know they are going to have a super time. Kindest Regards Poppy.

Hi Nick and Team.
We just wanted to send you all a very big “thank you” on behalf of ourselves and Angela for taking such good care of her over the last two days. It was enormously difficult for us to leave her (I doubt you noticed) as she is very
special to us, but, we do feel an enormous weight has been lifted from us, as we now know beyond doubt that she has somewhere to stay that is home away from home!

Our dog Freddie (Parsons Jack Russell) was a stray/rescue and has been in our family for just over 2 years.
Freddie is anxious around other dogs and we were a little concerned as to how he would cope at Hayfields Dog Hotel.
However, Nick and team
worked wonders with Freddie and he returned home after 17 days a very happy dog, and he has seemed far more relaxed during walks and has a calmer outlook on life.
Thank you Nick and Team! Freddie looks forward to seeing you again soon.
and many thanks,
Karen, Tim, Lauren, Tamzin & Freddie
Hi Nick and Vic,
Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for looking after Ness.
I love the fact she is so happy and delighted to be in your company, and is unsure who to welcome first, me or Vic!
You have a 5 star doggy hotel and
I have no doubts Ness is getting 5 star treatment.
Ness says see you in May and she will be practising her Frisbee skills before she returns.
Thank you Sharon, Bill and Nessie.
Karon, Robert & Bailey-Bumble
Hi Nick, it's Bailey-Bumble (aka PA to Managing Director) I just wanted to say a HUGE BIG THANK YOU for looking after me whilst mom & dad went off on holiday in January. I couldn't think of a better place to stay. Mom & Dad really didn't need to worry
about me, I had a FANTASTIC time & I can't wait to come back in August, in fact, my bags are packed ready!! ps, Mom & Dad also want to say a HUGE BIG THANK YOU TOO - they will never want to send me on holiday anywhere else and I am SO, SO GLAD xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Nick, Vic and the team at Hayfields,
Holly the collie here...
Well what another wonderful stay I had at the weekend. I think you should add Doggie Spa to Hayfields Luxury dog hotel . Mum and Dad were concerned as I had injured my paw again but
no worries at Hayfields. I was allowed to rest on a luxury sofa and get the best fuss and attention any dog could wish for. It really is home from home for me and I can't believe I've been visiting you all for 2 years this month. Really looking forward to
my next stay.
Love Holly xxx Oh and Mum and Dad
Liz, Gary and Diesel
Dear Nick and everyone at Hayfields,
We just wanted to say a very big thank you for the way that you have looked after Diesel for us, whilst we were away over Christmas and the New Year.
Diesel is a real scaredy-cat and very nervous,
but he has clearly had a really lovely stay with you and Vic. Allowing him to stay inside and share the settee is above and beyond our expectations and we are very grateful for the love and attention that you have given him.
He will definitely
be coming back to see you again when we disappear on holiday again.
Liz, Gary and Diesel Strain xx

What a lucky dog Elvis is to have stayed in such a beautiful place and with such wonderful care. Elvis is 6 and has never stayed with anyone but family. He also has arthritis of the spine so we were a little concerned about leaving him for the first time.
However we needn't have worried as Elvis had a great time and is firm friends with all at Hayfields. The new indoor rooms are huge and the outside run has idyllic views. It was well heated so Elvis' back problem was well managed.
During our holiday we
wanted to check Elvis was ok and Nick sent us a reassuring email to confirm all was well. We are so pleased to have found Hayfields and Elvis is already looking forward to our next 2 holidays which we have already booked. Thanks again.
This is THE MOST AMAZING SITE place for animals that I've ever seen, y'all are doin an incredible job, you have to really love animals alot to do this, so cool, stay bless keep taking good care of those doggies!
Ah, cute dogs!
Steven & Victoria
We just wanted to say a big thank you for looking after Oakley for the week he stayed with you. This was the first time he has been away from home & we were a little worried about how he would be, but we had nothing to worry about at all.
We were really reassured with the update and photo of him playing with his new best friend Muddy you sent us whilst we was away. We appreciate your kind offer to keep Oakley on when our flight home was cancelled. We will definitely be using Hayfields when
we go away on holiday again.

We just wanted to say a Huge thank you to everyone at the Hayfields dog hotel and especially Vic and Nick, for looking after our Stewie. He has so much fun there and so well looked after that we know we can enjoy our holidays without any worry. We will
never leave him anywhere else and we cant recommend it enough to every dog owner! We are truly very glad that we have found you!:)

thThank you so much for looking after Bess and Max so well during their long stay with you. We knew we had to find the right place for them to stay whilst we were on holiday, and I am glad to say that we could not have chosen better. With previous kennels our dogs have always been desperate to see us and leave as soon as they could. When I came to pick them up yesterday, while they did come up to say hello to me, they then ran off to Nick. It was clear that they both adored Nick and Vic, and that says such a lot. They both cried as well as we drove away from Hayfields they clearly did not want to leave. It is so goo

Hi,thank you so much for taking great care of Ruby. It was so nice to see her so happy when we collected her. She will definitely be staying with you again. Thank you so much.
Malcolm and Carole Coates
Thank you for looking after Alfie (Coates) last weekend. He loved it. Not stressed at all. Found just the right place for his holidays. Thanks again.
love this guys.
Joanna, Simon, Maizie & Herbie
A big thank you to Nick & co for having Maizie & Herbie at such short notice, this was their third visit & we hope to book them in again for many times to come.
As always they come home very happy, very muddy & very tired from lots of fabulous walks
across the fields.
We would not hesitate in recommending Hayfields to anyone who needs a kennel for their dogs. In addition to the first class care Nick & the team provide for their canine guests, they also provide often much needed reassurance that your
beloved dogs will be more than fine!!!!
Am looking for somewhere special for my Cocker Spaniel, think I have found it ,
Just need my husband to be well enough to go away, then I will be in touch
hi my name is amy . I love
i have a website and a dog too .

Hi Nick and team - Murphy and Purdy want to say a huge thank you for having them stay with you this weekend and for looking after them so well. They thoroughly enjoyed running around the field and diving in the puddles! Since they have been home, they
have both been fast asleep - no doubt dreaming of their weekend adventures. Thanks again, :)
hi my name is emma and i think your website rules, come check out mine
Mike and Jackie Theaker
Hi Nick, Vic and all the team at Hayfields. Thank you once again for the fantastic care Holly gets every time she comes for her weekend mini breaks. Having worked hard with Holly for the last 8 months to reassure her that she is finally in a forever home
and loved very much we could never leave her with just any kennels. Holly does need lots of reassurance and she gets just that from everyone at Hayfields. The proof is in how relaxed she is with all of you. Keep doing what you all do so well and we look forward
to seeing you all very soon.
Lee and Joanne Brown
Finding Hayfields Dog Hotel was the answer to our prayers.
Since having our dogs Ruby and Belle we could not bring ourselves to leave them in ordinary dog kennels, as they are very much used to home comforts.
Wow, what superb dog accommodation
and wonderful facilities Hayfields has to offer.
We have now just returned from Cyprus after leaving our dogs in the capable hands of Nick and Vic for a week. It was a great pleasure to meet you both and see how you really love and care for dogs. The location
is fantastic with acres of land for the dogs to run around, Ruby and Belle had a great time.
It was also re-assuring to log onto the website and see photos of the dogs really enjoying themselves and having email contact with Nick. This was a truly First
Class service and would have no hesitation in recommending Hayfields to anyone who would care to contact us. We will definitely book the dogs in for next year.
Thanks very much to all for your professional manner and caring nature.
The Higginson Family
Toby and Katie have just returned from their first week away from home and what a success it was! They were safe, happy and very well cared for. We particularly enjoyed being able to log onto the Hayfield's website from our hotel in Spain to view photos
of the crazy duo having fun out in the fields.
So, in the style of 'X FACTOR' it is four massive 'woofs' from us as we all agree that Hayfields have a winning formula that surely must be hard to beat!
Thanks once again and top of our list when planning
our next holiday will be to give you a call to check your availability to accommodate and take care of Toby and 'crazy' Katie!
Lin & Bob Randall
Many thanks to Nick and Co at Hayfields for looking after our 2 "treasures" Cleo and Marshall.Nick commented that they were a "lovely mischevious pair" LOL !
We had been concerned for Cleo as she had been unwell and lost weight before we flew off on
holiday. We need n't have worried though,on our return both dogs were quite obviously happy and contented.Cleo had gained just under a kilo too.
We suspect Marshall our rescue JR kept Nick on his toes we've had him described as many things and "mischevious"
is probably the the most polite!
A fab establishment and not a hint of that awful disinfectant smell.
Lovely kind people.
Nickie,Will,Maysie and Ben Wilson
Just wanted to say a massive THANKYOU to all at Hayfields for looking after our boy Beau for the last few days. We left with apprehension having never left him before only to be reassured several times by Nick that he was behaving - always a worry with
a inquisitive Beagle! Since arriving home today, Beau has been calm, asleep, content and asleep!!!! We think he had a ball!! It is great to have found somewhere as beautiful as Hayfields with people who put dogs first but are also excellent with the famillies
who trust them to look after their canine companions!! Beau will certainly be checking in again and we would recommend Hayfields in a heartbeat!! Thanks again.xx
Joanna. Simon, William & Mathilda
A huge thank you to Nick & Jo for taking such excellent care of our much loved (& spoilt) Maizie & Herbie.
We were a tad anxious about leaving them in kennels for 2 weeks (not sure if it showed during our rather reluctant departure) especially as this
was the 1st time for our puppy boy & Maizie's one & only experience was not a happy one.
We were so pleased to be greeted by 2 very happy & exuberant dogs who clearly were very contnet in their new home from home and were not in any hurry to leave.
you Jo for the advice on diet especially as Herbie has a sensitive tum and Maizie is just fussy when it comes to boring dog food
I'm pleased we have been able to book them in for the weekend of my son's wedding when their cousin Jasper will be joining
them (his 1st kennel experience too).
I am so pleased we have found a caring, loving & happy environment we are all confident to leave our much loved canine babies while we go on holiday.
Thankyou again :)
I love dogs and makes me happy to see such lovely place! Congratulations for your work! :-)
Steve, Peter & Liz.
Many thanks for taking such good care of Jack during his stay with you. He clearly made himself at home, and when we went to collect him after our holiday he dashed past us to give Nick a huge licking! He quickly settled into life back at home and is very happy after his break.
Having discussed with Nick that Jack sometimes pulls on the lead, Nick agreed to look at the problem while we were away, and we're pleased to say there is a noticable improvement from Jack on his return home.
It is great to have finally found a place we can trust to not only look after Jack, but clearly provide an environment he so enjoyed.
Rob & Donna
Thank you so much for looking after Dougal so well whilst we were abroad for the week. He has returned home, very relaxed, contented and just slipped back into his former routine.
He seemed to have enjoyed his time at Hayfields, being outdoors so much, even if it was muddy! It meant a lot leaving Dougal in the care of people we could trust and knowing he would be exercised each day and regularly too.
We will certainly be recommending Hayfields
Emma and Dave Seville
Just a short message to say a MASSIVE thank-you to everyone at Hayfields for taking care and showing patience with our Lab "ZAK". It was not only an experience for ZAK but us as his family and without your help and support it would not have been a reassuring for us all... we really appreciate your patience with ZAK and for allowing him to become "Your Kitchen Dog" !!!!! ZAK has returned home with us today and seems as content as when we left him. Thanks again to all at Hayfields and hoepfully we will see you all again soon!!
I want to say a huge thank you to Nick & Jo for taking care of my baby pup Ozzie, I was so nervous about leaving him for the first time and Nick emailed me regularly and made the effort to blog Ozzie to put my mind at ease :) . They were both right when they said I would be more stressed than he would ! He ran straight passed me when I went to collect him running straight to the field gate where Nick takes them out and then ran straight to greet the other dogs but ignored me!! He settled straight back to normal at home & seemed very content. Thank you both again, we will be back!!
My two dogs Tegan and Libby have been staying with jo, martin and her adorable doggy family for nearly ten years now.Jo came to my rescue after an awful experience in kennels which left libby thin and miserable..now i can go away and not have any worries, their happy and healthy and love running round the paddocks with the resident crew! Thier given the best care, food and attention than any Dorchester Hotel could provide and Libby adores jo..good enough for me.
Thank you for looking after Bramble. He seems to be very happy on his return home and obviously enjoyed his run around the Paddocks. I felt very relaxed leaving him and knew he was going to have a good visit.
Written by Alison (Alfie's owner) on Apr.16
A big thank you for looking after Alfie.This was his second visit and as ususal I felt very reasured knowing Alfie was left in such caring hands.I know all his needs are met and Jo's patience is second to none with all my motherly concerns!!we would not leave him with anyone else and I am sure he is looking forward to his summer holiday as much as we are!
Jenny (Poppy's Owner)
I just want to say a big thank you to Nick and all at Hayfields for taking such great care of Poppy. She had such a great holiday! I think that she looks healthier and happier than before we left! Knowing that she was in good hands and seeing her update on the dogblog really put my mind at rest. We will definitely recommend Hayfields to all of our dog-owner friends, and I’m sure Poppy would love to visit again in the near future.
Harley would like to say thank you for looking after him...
Harley had a great time running around the fields and meeting new friends...
Being only 5 months old it was good to know Harley was in safe hands.....
It was great to see Harley on the Blog having fun which put our minds at rest.
Thanks again for the advice on the food which is working really well.....
We were going on holiday for a week and it was the firsrt time we were leaving Badger all on his lonesome and I was really worried!
Thankfully.. I had absolutely no need - Badger had a most fantastic holiday of his own! He was happy, relaxed and pleased to see us when we got back that I knew he'd been well taken care of. Thanks so much to all of you for giving us the peace of mind and putting up with our cheeky little Badger!
He can't wait to come back again over the bank holiday.. I think he's looking forward to chasing the sheep and mice again, and of course spending time with his buddy Nick! See you soon... lots of sloppy kisses from Badger! :)
I left Munch for the first time in 12 years to take a much needed holiday. I was very worried he wouldn't cope without me as he hates being away from me, even if friends want to walk him he pulls back to my house and dosen't want to go.
What a joy it was on collection to see him relaxed, happy and chilled out in his room. He was so well looked after and he enjoyed his holiday as much as I did. He spent the first night home getting lots of hugs and cuddles and tried to lick me to death all night :-)
He will certainly be back again next time I can get away for a holiday. Thank you Jo and the team. I will be recommending you to all my friends with much loved dogs. Munch 'the boss' standing up front with his family before Sonny (the red one) and Cassie (the black one) passed away. His last remaing brother Rizza (the white one) is still with us and really enjoyed his holiday too with my friend and her children. thanks again
Sue and Munch

Thanks Jo for looking after Rocco and making his stay a very enjoyable one. It was such a relief to go on holiday and know Rocco would be looked after the
same way as at home.
He enjoyed making friends and is looking forward to the delivery of his new food, especially the salmon one.
Rocco will be back next year sometime, thanks Sheila, Bill & Rocco
Hi. sorry it has been a while since I picked up munty but I would just like to say a big thankyou for taking him in at short notice and I can tell he was not stressed at all by staying at your kennels. I do apologise for his desire for balls and maybe next he stays I will bring some wooden bowling balls with me. Thank you Jo once again, and I will definitely be booking him in at your place next time I go away. Also thanks for the advice on alternative foods.
It has been almost 2 weeks since I collected Cookie from you.
I just wanted to say a huge 'thank you' for the wonderful job you did looking after her.
She is a rather pampered pooch so I knew I had to find the right 'holiday home' for her.
Being a puppy and this her first time away from us gave us some worry.
Well, she obviously loved her time with you.
I can't tell you what a comfort it is to know she was in such good hands.
It sounds dramatic but if it weren't for you we wouldn't go away!
Your advice on her diet has been invaluable. Before she struggled with upset stomachs but since she has been on the raw food there have been no problems and her overall well-being is excellent.
Cookie is looking forward to her stay in November!
Ken & Gill Brock
We have today collected Harry after his very first holiday (and ours since we had him). It was so nice to see him & Barney on the blog while we were away, obviously having a great time. We could see that Harry & Barney were going to have fun together on the day we took Harry to Jo. We did wonder if he might not want to come home to us! Gladly he was happy to see us but he had been very well looked after. We are so glad to have found Jo &' Hayfields'. Thank you so much for taking such good care of him. We now know Harry will also have a great holiday when we next look to go away. He might even get to meet up with Barney again.
Susan and Paul
A huge thank you to Jo and everyone at Hatfields for the way that they recently looked after Barney.
We have never left Barney before but from the very first moment we met Jo we knew that we could finally go on holiday safe in the knowledge that Barney would be happy and well looked after.
Whilst we were away it was lovely to log onto the Dog Blogg to see that Barney was having a great time and had made a good friend in Harry.
When we picked Barney up it was obvious that he was so happy and we can't thank Jo enough for everything she has done.
The only down side is that since coming home Barney is really really missing his new friend Harry!!
We are already planning future holidays free from the worry of how Barney will be whilst we're away.
Anne and Trevor Hoare
Thank you for looking after Leo so well, whilst we were away on holiday. He obviously enjoyed his stay with you and we could relax whilst away, knowing that he was in a 'home from home' environment. It was also nice being able to log-on and view Leo and the read the write-up on how he was.
Anne and Trevor
A big thank you to Jo and her fantastic team for giving Diesel a great time during his stay at Hayfields and for giving us as a family great peace of mind. Like many before we had searched and searched for a place where we felt Diesel would be well cared for and happy and in finding Hayfields we were not disappointed.
During our holiday we logged onto the Hayfields website only to see Diesel in the Rogues Gallery, it made our day!
Diesel came home happy, leaner and alot fitter.
Thank you all once again Jayne, Martin & Jake
A huge thank you to Jo and all the team at Hayfields for giving Jerry such a wonderful time during his stay. We were very worried about leaving him but when we collected him it was clear to see that he was happy, contented and comfortable in his holiday home and could have stayed as long as you like without missing us!! Jo is wonderful and she had arranged a suitable playmate for Jerry as he loves to run with other dogs. He had an absolute ball and I won't worry nearly so much next time we leave him as I know he will be happy and very well cared for. Thank you so much to you all and we look forward to the next stay (especially Jerry)! Lizzie, Paul and Tom. Ps. He slept so much when he came home I think he had such a lovely time playing he was worn out!
Lilly is looking forward to Returning, this was the Very 1st time i had every left her any where for more than 1 Night, I looked and Looked for, But not untill i found Jo was i comfortable to leave her with Jo with-out a trial Night, As for Eating Habbits... I had tried everything and some times you forget the basics, Jo brought me and Lilly back on Track with her eating Habbits, I thinks she had a Much better Holiday than i did,
Lilly is Doing 110% better than she was before she even went to Jo,
HayFields, Jo i think you guys can be seen much more than just a Dog Hotel - more like Owner To Dog Rehab and the Dog just gets a wonderful week away :)
Thanks Again for Accommodating me and Lilly, Lilly is looking forward to her next Stop with Hayfield and Jo and Her Team
We left our 14 month old Lab Gerrard with Jo for just under 2 weeks.
From the moment we called Jo to ask her about leaving Gerrard with her she was so accomodating in every way.
Jo let us go and have a look around and take Gerrard to meet her.
Gerrard before he went to Jo was not on the greatest diet and he didnt seem to enjoy his food at all. But Jos knowledge and expertise sorted all that out for us! Gerrard is know licking his bowel and fed twice a day on Natural food.
This really is a Dog Hotel with special care and attention taken with your dogs needs.Gerrard will never stop anywere else when we have to leave him again because nothing comes close to what we have experienced from Jo and her team.
Thank You so much.
Fiona & Gus Macaulay
We have had bad experiences leaving our treasured yorkies (Taz & Tia) at previous kennels. As you can imagine we were very anxious leaving them with Jo at Hayfields for the first time. The kennels and surroundings are stunning and Jo was very dog orientated nothing was a problem for her. If your dog did not eat Jo or her friend who helps her out would find something your dog liked. We were informed our dogs had chicken and other treats during their stay. Taz & Tia I was informed preferred to sleep in the special chairs they provided in their room rather than sleep in their own bed which was also in the room. They usually sleep with us in our bed,the chairs they preferred were raised slightly from the ground which made sense as to why they liked them. Whilst we were on holiday in the Maldives we had free WIFI in our room, so we checked into Hayfields web site as we were at this time slightly missing the dogs (sad I know - but we love our dogs like they were our kids). To our surprise there was a photo of Taz & Tia mulling about in the field and one of Tia eating from a bowl rather than from a plate which she usually eats from. We tried for weeks to get Tia to eat from a bowl but she would not have it - so thank you Jo and friend for managing what we thought was the impossible. Seeing these photo's of them put our mind at rest and we enjoyed the rest of our holiday knowing they were happy. If you are struggling to find a decent and very caring kennels - look NO further than this place. We can guarantee you will not find better. We searched high and low to find a place like this which cares so much for your dogs (genuinely) cares. I will be using Hayfields at all times now. What I would say is because it is a small kennels and a good one, spaces are limited so book early. We could go on and on as to how happy we were with the care of Taz and Tia but I think you have the picture by now.
Thank you again Jo and friend (sorry we did not catch your friends name) from a very happy Mr & Mrs Macaulay.
PS: Taz & Tia said thanks for looking after them (well they would do if they could talk!!!!!).xx
I suffer with separation anxiety when away from Mitch so it was with a huge amount of worry and tears that I left him with Jo. My brother who was looking after him let us down at the last minute, I very nearly cancelled our holiday. I told Jo I would ring her every day to check he was ok, and bless her she said that would be fine. Mitch obviouly thinks out of sight out of mind as he settled in with Jo and her dogs almost straight away, and fell in love with them all. He had a better holiday than we did (rain rain and more rain) he was out playing and exploring during the day and snuggled up watching TV with Jo and her husband in the evening. He loved it so much that I don't think he wanted to come home with me. Jo gave me some really good training advise which we have continued with and have an even better dog now. Even if we don't go away next year I will definately send Mitch to Hayfields and Jo for his holiday.
Jane and Frank Allen
We were so anxious about leaving Maggie. She is 16 and has never been away from us even for 1 night. Jo suggested we tried leaving her for a day, then 2 days and finally five days.
Thanks to Jo's loving care, Maggie took to it like a duck to water, making herself very much at home. She spent a lot of time outdoors, which is what she really likes and on wet days, settled herself very comfortably beside their computer in their office!
We cannot say a big enough thank you to Hayfields. We will be back soon.
Hayfields look absolutely fantastic Jo! I think there are going to be some dogs enjoying their holidays better than their owners!! All the very best of luck with the new venture..see you soon (I hope)
Pamela & Ryan and the Mossbawnhill Team xx
Looks really good. My dogs are always so happy at Hayfields. Good luck with it.
