The Red House Luxury Boarding Cattery and Kennels

Moor Ln, Murton, York YO19 5XD, UK – 01904 489994

Excellent as always. I think we've left our dogs with the Red House on at least 15 separate occasions. I can honestly say we've never had a single issue. The staff are very friendly and caring towards the dogs. The location is easy to get to, close to York, and yet very tranquil. Some time ago the daughter of a family friend worked there and if there was anything out of order it would have been picked up. There wasn't. The set up is solid. What's not to like? So seeing some bad reviews pop up got me wondering the lengths people will go to tear an excellent long running family business down. Not to mention getting their mates who have never been to the kennels to leave a review as well. I seem to recall a similar thing happen to another boarding kennels in York. The Red House Kennels has always been great for our dogs. It's run by genuine animal lovers who tend to each animal if it were their own. Don't just take my word for it (or any other for that matter). Come and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed. Unless your mate tells you to be disappointed. But why lie? The place is great. And our dogs are always happy when we approach it, when they see the staff, and during their stay. 5 stars is not enough.

We have left our dog Nuts and cat Biscuit here at least twice a year for the last 8 years and this year they were joined by their new younger doggy brother Archie. We wouldn't entrust any other establishment with our furry children!! You know your pets and can tell when they are happy and unhappy , relaxed, stressed or upset. All our pets without fail are happy and relaxed and look extremely healthy after being left for their holidays at Red House. Our dog Nuts strains on his lead with excitement to greet Lucy when we arrive for the start of his holidays at Red House, a sure sign that he is happy to return. We love that we can go away on our holidays safe in the knowledge that our pets are enjoying theirs! Thank you to Alyse and team for consistently providing such a safe and loving haven for our pets!!
