About our Home Boarding

My name is Judith and I have loved Whippets for as long as I can remember. Our resident Whippet, Sid, is always happy to welcome new playmates into our home and show them the ropes - i.e. which sofa is the squishiest and whether clockwise or anti-clockwise zoomies are the best (still under consideration!). We are fully licensed and insured.


Our guests become one of the family during their stay and nowhere is out of bounds. There are loads of comfy spots for snoozing, the window seat in the kitchen being a favourite, together with plenty of beds scattered around. The sofas are rarely whippet free and laps are always available.


We are fortunate to live in beautiful countryside where we walk our guests (on leads) twice a day (unless it is throwing it down and they refuse point blank to step outside!). There is a Whippet proof garden with plenty of space for zoomies and other whippety goings-on.

My girls are not used to being left but I felt very confident they would be looked after superbly in this lovely location. There is a big garden, Sid the bounciest whippet I've ever met and lots of soft, warm snuggly corners. Judith was very welcoming and I would have no hesitation in recommending the whippet retreat to anyone who wants a five star experience for their pets.

I would like to say a very big thank you to Judith & Allan for having Sid to stay at The Whippet Retreat. From the moment we walked into their beautiful home we knew we had made the right decision booking Sid in for a five star holiday. Keeping us updated with pictures and videos of Sid's antics while we were away helped keep our minds at rest knowing he was having such fun. I would highly recommend the Whippet Retreat to anyone going away and looking for somewhere for their beloved four legged best friends to stay. Sid can't wait to come back and stay with his brother & new friends. Thanks again & hope to see you all soon Karen Sean Chloe & Sid
