“Being a first time dog owner with an 8 month old puppy, I was very apprehensive about leaving Shep in someone else’s care. After our initial visit to Millin Brook I instantly knew Shep was going to love running around the fields, playing in the stream and being around the other dogs. Sian and Dave were great at communicating with me, they sent me regular photos and texts whilst I was away. Also posted on their social media pages with new photos of Shep’s adventures which reassured me and made me able to enjoy my own holiday. Millin Brook is a wonderful place to send your dog on a long or short holiday and it’s clear just how much the Smith family love spending time with your dogs giving them the love and attention that they want! Shep will definitely be back again to see his buddy Barnaby”.
“The biggest thank you to Sian and family for taking such loving care of our beautiful pugs and lab/collie! We were able to relax and enjoy our holiday and were regularly surprised by photos and updates on how they were enjoying their holiday too! Can’t recommend highly enough, beautiful family in the most beautiful setting! Definitely a home from home! Happy New Year and we will definitely be seeing you again”.
“We knew that our Sally and Ember would be well looked after – and they were. It is so reasurring to have regular updates and photos, and despite being real home lovers, they had a great time. They even learned how to write and send us a post card!! Thank you Sian and all the family. We can thoroughly recommend you, especially to those like us who worry about leaving their fur babies”.
“Left our 3 Golden Retrievers with Sian for our recent trip, they loved it! 3 dogs of differing ages, all looked like they were having fun. Trips to the beach and woods, 1 of them even having cuddles on the sofa. Highly Recommended!!!”
“Sian and her family were so welcoming to Frank. He has come home contented and relaxed. From the first moment I contacted Sian she reassured me with her calm, professional manner that Frank would be fine. I was worried he would play up, but he was the perfect guest! Sian seems to understand that all dogs are individuals, with their particular quirks and ways and makes them all feel welcome and loved”.
“I collected my two dogs from Millin Brook today. They have both had the most fabulous holiday! From running in the fields to walking in the woods, cuddles on the sofa and watching tv. Frankie loved the splashing in the water and Ruby the blackberry picking! Sian and family couldn’t have cared for them with more love and fun. I love the postcard which was waiting at home when I arrived back from my holiday, beautiful picture of my two girls. All Frankie and Ruby want to know is when is their next holiday!!!”
“It’s the first time I’d ever left my two young dogs and felt reassured after visiting Millin Brook before hand. Sian has a genuine love of dogs! When they arrived for their holiday, Biscuit & Nibbles settled in very well and loved running around the large enclosed fields. They loved having cuddles on the sofa with Sian and especially her two boys. We were kept up to date with regular updates on their fun adventures. Knowing they were having fun and were safe meant we could totally relax on our holiday! We arrived home to a lovely postcard from them with an adorable photo of the two of them which I’m going to frame. It was so thoughtful! I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend Millin Brook and would book when we go away again!”
“Our big boy Bruce has just had an amazing adventure at Millin Brook. We were kept up to date with his progress as it was his first time not staying with family members. Knowing he was safe and having fun meant we could totally relax on our holiday. He came home this morning & is already booked in for “his” next holiday. We arrived home to a lovely postcard from him which made us smile. Lovely touch! I think he’s missing Sian, Dave, the boys and all his new doggy friends (especially Duke) as he’s sulking in the garden. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Millin Brook. Big thumbs (and paws) up from us!!!”
“We picked up Duke today after his holiday with Millin Brook – he stayed here for almost 2 weeks whilst me and my husband got married and went on our honeymoon. This was the first time we have left him anywhere and we were very worried as he’s our little baby and can be quite a handful still being a puppy! Millin Brook were fantastic from booking, throughout his stay and picking him up today. We were always kept up to date with his adventures and this made us feel completely at ease knowing he was in the best hands whilst we were away. It was a lovely touch having a postcard sent from Duke for us whilst we were away to come back too today! And thanks for our lovely card and gift too! Would recommend you guys to anyone and I know Duke can’t wait to come back soon!”
“My 17 month, full on, Field Spaniel Merlin had a week’s summer holiday with Siân and her family. He clearly had a wonderful time, especially playing with Barnaby. I would not hesitate to recommend MillinBrook, and indeed have already done so. A great home from home for treasured dogs”.
“I cannot speak highly enough of Millin Brook Luxury Dog Boarding. From the initial inquiry my mind had been put at ease, my two boys would be well looked after. I have a Labrador and a Cocker Spaniel who are inseparable. Before booking a meet and greet was arranged, the boys made themselves at home immediately and I met the family. The boys spent two weeks there and to be honest I was surprised they wanted to come home. Daily updates via Facebook made me smile. Two very happy dogs and happy owners. The boys are now on countdown until they return in September. A big thank you from all here for the care, attention and love that has been given to Beau and Crowley”.
“Fantastic place…thanks to Sian and her family for looking after our dog Bennie. Would highly recommend Millin Brook. Made a huge difference knowing I could relax on holiday knowing our dog was being so well looked after and welcomed into their home as if he was their own dog. Thanks so much!”
“Our boys Monty and Charlie absolutely LOVED their holiday at Millin Brook. It was lovely being updated with videos and seeing what a fabulous time they were having. It made it much easier for us all to relax on our holiday knowing that the boys were in a safe and fun environment with lovely people who love dogs! We would highly recommend Millin Brook Luxury Dog Boarding and we will be using them again for our boys next holiday!”
“I can’t thank Sian and Dave enough for being so amazing and accommodating at our very difficult time. This was Dewi’s 2nd visit and he’s had a brilliant week with great walks and loving cuddles in the comfort of their beautiful home. I loved seeing all the photos and videos of him having fun throughout the week. It really is a home from home and I feel so relieved to have found you. Thank you so much!”
“Winnie and Milo always love their time with Sian and family at Millin Brook. We are able to travel safe in the knowledge that they are well looked after and in the company of other dogs. The regular updates provided via Facebook is also a great comfort. We cannot recommend Millin Brook enough!!!”
“I need to have peace of mind when I leave our dog Morse in someone else’s care, as he’s a very important member of our family. If I don’t get the OK from Siân to have him …we wouldn’t be going anywhere! Morse is not the friendliest of dogs when you first meet him, and despite some of his endearing qualities, he’s not your usually Labrador! But Dave and Siân got him sussed immediately and he absolutely loves his stays with their family. They are both very ‘dog knowledgeable’ and we know he is in very capable hands! He has stayed with them twice now, but booked in for a few more times over the year. I couldn’t be happier with his care during his stay. Thank you so much”.
“I cannot recommend Millin Brook highly enough. Sian and Dave have been so kind and welcoming, and clearly love all the dogs as if they are their own. Celyn has enjoyed her varied walks on the beach and in the woods and has loved chasing the ball in the fields, followed by relaxation time on the settee or in front of the fire. We have been so reassured by the photos and videos posted whilst we have been away. Thanks to all the family for your hard work and dedication in all weathers, and good luck with the expansion of the business. Celyn has booked her next holiday already!”.
“Bella has just returned from her two week holiday with this lovely family! I truly believe she enjoys her breaks here as much as I do my holidays! Bella just loves this place and her excitement when we pull up on the driveway is demonstrative of this. She is made to feel like part of the family. And what an amazing team this family are! Everyone gets involved in the care of their special guests. Truly a home from home for my precious fur baby. The numerous varied walks keep her happy and active, the safe nature of the family home allows for early run arounds with the family’s children too, and her bond with Barnaby (the resident black lab) is immense. Cannot recommend this facility enough….. will make any dog owner pleased with their selection for their pets. The daily updates on Facebook and Instagram make me feel secure that my dog is having an absolutely great stay! If dogs could write on trip advisor this would be a 5 star review”.
“I cannot thank you all enough! Maddie had the most amazing stay with you. I know she wanted to stay forever! You really do go above and beyond for the dogs that stay, and it is definitely a home away from home. She came home so happy and in the most beautiful condition (even had a bath!). I cannot imagine Maddie staying anywhere else now. Great to see the videos on social media too, and we even came home to a lovely postcard ‘from Maddie’, sent while she was staying with you. My daughter was absolutely thrilled (and so was I!). I really cannot recommend Millin Brook highly enough. See you all soon xx”
“I have just picked up Daisy and Dilly from their 7 week holiday and they look fabulous. Healthy, trim and well happy. Obviously had some great adventures. They have enjoyed living amongst the family where cuddles are never in short supply. Thank you so much Sian, Dave and boys for making our girls feel part of your lovely family. See you end of February!”
“Our 13 month old Labrador, Buddy spent 12 fantastic nights at Millin Brook. He lived in the family home and was treated like a family pet. He enjoyed numerous daily walks in the private fields and woodlands of Millin Brook and also had walks at local beaches and public woods. We were able to view daily videos of Buddy posted on Facebook which reassured us that he was enjoying himself. He socialised with so many other dogs during his stay. Sian & Dave who own Millin Brook have a wealth of professional knowledge and experience working with animals and this becomes evident in the way they interact with the dogs and owners. They treat each dog as an individual based on their specific needs and tailor exercise and play, taking into account the age, breed and personality of your dog. We were able to give them Buddy’s daily routine so that they could mirror it to help him feel right at home. I would not leave Buddy anywhere else. Thank you so much Millin Brook”.
“I can not recommend Sian, Dave and the boys enough. We live an hour away from Millin Brook, however it was worth every minutes drive for the peace of mind it gave us while away. Our 10month old Golden Retriever Harley is our baby and my sons wouldn’t let her go to anywhere other than a home away from home and Millin Brook was exactly what we were looking for. Harley, along with the other guests, were given the run of the downstairs of the house, cwtched up with the family in the evenings and slept in the kitchen at night. There’s so much outdoor space for everyone to run around and Harley had lots of visits to the beach and forest and we had plenty of videos and pictures of her time on holiday. The peace of mind it gave us to know she was happy and well looked after made our own holiday that much more enjoyable. Thank you so much to all at Millin Brook we will definitely be in touch to book Harley’s holiday in the summer and maybe a couple of visits before then too”.
“Our dogs are a very big part of our family and the moment we had to leave them overnight was such a worry to find someone to trust, care and love them just as much as we do! We were so lucky to find Millin Brook luxury dog boarding and couldn’t have hoped for better care and attention that our Maggie and Mabel received in their recent stay, to see them on Facebook enjoying themselves and having lots of exercise made us so happy and it made missing them so much easier just knowing they were safe and well looked after. We would highly recommend Sian, Dave and family to anyone wishing the best care for their fur babies whilst needing to go away!!! Thank you so much”.
“Thank you for having Buddy and Max. This is their 2nd time at Millin Brook and I cannot recommend Millin Brook highly enough.
They were treated like one of the family, lots of walks and updated videos of how they are getting on. Thank you for looking after Buddy and Max again. They will be back soon! X”
“Thank you all at Millin Brook for looking after little Lenny so well. He absolutely loved his time with you. Sian brought Lenny to our wedding for photos with us outside the church. Great service – highly recommended! Thank you!!!”
“I was concerned about having to leave 6 month old Mop, due to work commitments, but I needn’t have worried. Millin Brook is wonderful…fab people, a lovely setting and excellent care. The icing on the cake – the video updates that showed Mop safe, well and enjoying himself. Happy puppy = Happy owner. Thank you Sian, Dave and the boys”.
“Our two dogs Bob and Gyp have recently had the most wonderful 2 week holiday staying at Millin Brook with Sian, Dave and family. They were looked after by all family members as their own. They have returned to us happy relaxed and tired dogs (sign of a good holiday) which is something we have not experienced using kennels. It was wonderful seeing daily videos of them with the family at the beach and woodland walks, (Bob especially loved his pool party!) and socialising with other dogs. The post card from them waiting for us on the mat on our return from our holiday was a nice touch. We can not recommend Millin Brook more highly for the fantastic and highly professional service that they provide. They are clearly experienced dog handlers and love what they do. Thank you very much for allowing us all to have a great holiday”.
“We travelled from Cardiff for Sian and Dave to look after our 4 year old Dalmatian. Their set up is just amazing and we wanted her to have a good holiday too! It was well worth the journey. We received lots of updates and photos and she always looked very happy and at home. Don’t think she missed us at all! There were lots of new friends to play with and there is loads of space for them to explore. This is an exceptional place and Florence will definitely be back next year! Thanks for having her x”
“Thank you both so much for the amazing care and attention you gave Floyd. All the extra special things that you did with him, walks on the beach, swimming in the sea. I think he thinks West is best now! The birthday cake was such a special touch which we loved watching. We missed him very much but you looked after him like your own. Thank you so so much”.
“Roxy & Bruno (2 very naughty Beagles) came back to Millin Brook for a 2 week stay and we were blown away as to how brilliant they were looked after. We saw pictures and videos each day on facebook of their adventures to Solva, Newgale and Canaston Woods, which they loved. Sian and Dave also have extensive, fenced land at home – perfect for exercise and doggy adventures! When we got home from hols we had a picture post card of the dogs in the post letting us know what a wonderful time the dogs had, which was a beautiful touch. I really can’t recommend Millin Brook highly enough to everybody for a short or long term staycation. Thanks again guys!”
“We were worried about leaving our little Meg for the first time but had no need to worry as Millin Brook provided a fantastic home from home for her. It is in a beautiful setting with a large secure garden to run around in. Sian, Dave and family welcomed her into their home and I looked forward to their daily pictures and updates of her adventures. They certainly went over and above what I would have expected. I would definitely recommend them”.
“Dash just returned from a wonderful stay at Millin Brook and is flat out after all the fun. It was great to see him as one of the family and enjoying the beach with Barnaby. The regular pictures and videos really reassured us that he was having a great holiday too. Sian and Dave are professional and caring people who we cannot recommend highly enough. Dash won’t be going anywhere else! Thanks again and for the little surprise in our post box on our return. Very nice touch”.
“Madge our Cavachon has just returned from a 9 day stay here and it is the first time we have left her with people she doesn’t know in a strange house. Like most pet owners we were so anxious about leaving her. Sian invited Madge over to meet the family including Barnaby their dog before her stay and we were immediately at ease. You could feel straight away that they love dogs and would really look after Madge.
Throughout her stay we were updated with videos and pictures of Madge through Facebook showing she was having the best time, with lots of other guest dogs and Barnaby! This helped us to relax and enjoy our holiday knowing Madge was being well looked after and enjoying herself!
We picked up a very relaxed absolutely knackered Madge today and brought her home to find that amongst all of the fun she had, she made some time to send us a post card!
Thank you both so much! We would recommend Millin Brook to anyone looking for a perfect home away from home for their dogs xxx”
“I cannot recommend Millin Brook Luxury Dog Boarding highly enough. I didn’t want to put my dog Monty into just ‘kennels’ when I was away… I wanted a ‘home from home’ for him… and I certainly found it! Monty was treated as one of the family & went on days out for walks, to the beach and woods with Sian & her family… and of course not forgetting young Barnaby who Monty developed a special bond with. Moreover, Sian was kind enough to post videos on Facebook of Monty’s escapades on almost a daily basis so I could rest easy knowing that he was having the time of his life. If this is a dog’s life, sign me up!”
“Dewi had a fantastic time with Sian and Dave. They went out of their way to make our wedding special and bringing him down. Will definitely be using them again, would highly recommend. Dewi would give five stars but he’s so worn out he’s slept for the last two days!!”
“Enzo had a fantastic break with Sian, Dave & their family! And of course not forgetting Barnaby. We really couldn’t have asked for a better environment for him, especially as he is so energetic and constantly loves to be around people, so we needed somewhere we knew he would be well cared for and engaged while we’re not there. Sian posted photos and videos regularly which we really appreciated seeing as we could see what a fantastic time he was having with the whole family. Sian & her family was also very accommodating when agreeing pick up/drop off times, which again is very reassuring. So, all in all, a fantastic service and we actually think that Enzo was quite sad to say goodbye to his friends, but never fear, he’ll be back soon! Thanks for everything, I hope you’ll have him back again because I wouldn’t want him going anywhere else!”
“Excellent boarders, the best I have come across! Our 18 month old Golden Doodle had lots of fun playing with the resident 6 month old black lab Barnaby! It’s a beautiful secluded, secure, clean location with amazing areas for the dogs to have freedom to enjoy themselves but also warm and cosy for those dogs not so energetic! A real gem of a find.”
