Great service, great location


I often visit family in Chester but cannot take my 2 dogs. I feel very happy leaving them with Cathy and her family. The dogs always come back in great condition and very happy. I can recommend Cathy to anyone considering using a home boarding service.


Lovely place, lovely people - Five Star Dog Sitting Service


I've had dogs since I was 12 years old and have seen quite a few boarding kennels in my time. I've got a 9 month old Welsh Terrier puppy ( Bryan) who's our pride and joy, so didn't want him to be locked up in a run all day. Cathy, Sam and their daughters are a really friendly happy bunch, who clearly love dogs. They took fabulous care of Bryan. He ran loose in their secure garden and played with all the other dogs for hours, and Cathy walks them in the woods too. He was such a happy little fellow when we picked him up and not traumatized at all. He slept for a full day afterwards, through all the running about! I'd recommend Ashcroft in every way.

Home from home for our springer


Our 3 year old springer spaniel, Maisy, suffers from epilepsy and we were advised that the stress of being in kennels could trigger seizures. We were worried about leaving her when we went away on holiday but fortunately we came across Ashcroft Cottage were Maisy settled in really well and was treated as one of the family. She seems to have thoroughly enjoyed playing with Cathy's springer Ollie in the extensive garden. We have already booked Maisy in for when we next go abroad.


Highly recommended


We are very lucky to have such a great place on our doorstep for our much loved Vizsla to stay. Geoffrey loves staying with Cathy, Sam their girls and Ollie. As we live close by we can see what a great service they provide and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.


League of it's own


As soon as you arrive at Ashcroft cottage you just know your dog is going to love staying there. The photos on the website are exactly what it says on the tin. The grounds to the house are massive and there are 5 acres of land with woods for walking. Cathy & her husband are very friendly approachable people who are genuinely interested in your dog’s wellbeing. We were texted regularly while on holiday with updates as to how our dog was enjoying his holiday! We have struggled to find somewhere suitable that gives the love & affection that our dog deserves and the garden big enough for him to play in. Ashcroft Cottage is in a league of it's own....don’t waste your time shopping around your dog is in safe hands here.
