Welcome to our website

Welcome to Bramblewood Boarding and Breeding Kennels situated in Holsworthy Hamlets, North Devon providing quality Canine Care by professional dog lovers.



Bramblewood Kennels is run by me, Diana Walker. Bramblewood (named after our first two gundogs, Bramble and Woody) is able to offer a first class service to anyone wishing to use our kennels, be it for a trained dog or family pet, therefore all breeds of dogs are welcome for either a short or long stay or take advantage of our day creche for single day dog care. We offer special rates for families of dogs staying together and older dogs or young puppies are welcome. We are committed to ensuring the well-being of every dog placed in our care so that you can go away in the knowledge that you have left your dog in kind and caring hands.

Our purpose built kennels are heated in winter and bad weather and provide comfortable accommodation for your dog. All kennels have an attached outside run. We are able to take up to 15 dogs at any time and with 35 acres of deer fenced secure land for your dog to be exercised on (of which more than half has been planted with native broadleaved trees. "Doggy Heaven"), our kennels are a fantastic place to stay for any dog offering a wonderful opportunity to socialise with other dogs as well as being kept active.

We provide two to three walks a day either on or off the lead depending upon your wishes, some dogs are only used to going to the local park for a walk and the owners prefer them to stay on the lead. Some dogs aren't used to socialising with other dogs and we let them set their own pace a day at a time until after a few days they often come out of their shells and end up having a wonderful time with the other dogs.

We understand that some people may be a little anxious about leaving their family friend in our care and we will do whatever it takes to ensure both you and your dog are totally at ease with us. Our repeat booking rate is a testimonial to what we provide here at Bramblewood, in fact many owners tell us that their dog starts to get excited when they turn into our lane and realise where they are going, after all its not just you going on holiday, your dog is as well.

We are a local authority approved and licensed boarding and breeding kennels and have Pet Plan Boarding Insurance and Public Liability insurance.

In case of an emergency we have a vet on call 24 hours and we pride ourselves on making sure that all your pets specific needs are catered for, any dog medication being administered when required, with dedicated care and attention by us at all times.

We welcome visitors to view our facilities by appointment only.
