Customer Comments

Used for thirty years for all 4 dogs. Dogs always came home clean and healthy. Staff fantastic. Used Difford for long weekends and six week holidays. In my opinion best kennels in County.

Regardless of the weather all dogs housed in our Kennels are individually walked twice a day in the company and attention of our experienced and well trained staff. Cats each have a fantastic amount of space attached to their individual living space in our cattery where they can play and enjoy fresh air.


no appointmentWe opened our first establishment in 1971 so have many years experience in providing a high quality family run service to our regular clients here at Difford Lodge however we understand trying a new kennel or cattery can be a worrying time so we invite you to come and visit us and take a guided tour of our facilities before you commit to placing your pet with us - no appointment is necessary.

Bring your pet along one afternoon for a free short stay and walk with no hidden charges. Allow your pet to meet us and see the place for themselves!


SyringeFirstAidKitNaturally your pet's health is as important to us as it is to you so we provide for all types of diet, or if you wish feed your own food. We carefully administer medication as required and we insist all vaccines must be up to date.


The great news is here at Difford Kennels and Cattery we only charge per night so you can drop your pet off when we open and collect the following day just before we close - all for the price of a 1 night stay!
