Collection and Delivery

Early Returns and Cancellations

Sorry we do not give credit for early returns, you will be charged for the period booked.

Checking In

All guests are logged onto our system, which helps us to keep track of special needs that they may have. Filling in your booking form prior to arrival helps us to do this.

Health and Welfare

The health and welfare of our guests is very important to us. We cannot accept any cat or dog without proof of up-to-date inoculations. Please remember to bring your pet's vaccination certificates. Any boarder without valid certificates will be refused entry. Pets must also be treated for parasites and worms on a regular basis. We reserve the right to refuse to board any animal that is clearly unwell, or that we consider could be dangerous to our staff or other guests. At Maythorne Cottage we give medication to your pet, as required, at no extra charge.

In the unlikely event that your pet becomes unwell during their stay they will be treated by our/your vet. This cost should be covered by your kennel or cattery insurance (up to policy maximum) unless it is a pre-existing condition. A copy of our insurance policy certificate is available to view upon request.

Please be aware that we take no responsibility for loss or damage to any bedding or toys that may be supplied by you, however caused. Whilst every care and attention is taken during boarding, responsibility for the pet can only be accepted at the owner's risk.
