Boarding & Exercise

State of the art, acres of space

Custom-built kennels situated amongst 40 acres of beautiful farmland just outside the Cotswolds. Our guests enjoy at least four exercise sessions every day always on grass and with other dog friends for company and playtime. We have large securely-enclosed paddocks for off-lead exercise and offer generous walks exploring 40 acres of open countryside and native oak woodland.

After walks, our dogs come back into cosy indoor bedrooms where they have their own bedding, toys and treats. Underfloor-heated and warm in the winter, the kennels are tiled and stay cool in the summer months. Calming radio and nightlights give a sense of comfort and security.

We are veterinary approved and fully licensed by Tewkesbury Borough Council. Owners and some staff living on site 24/7 and CCTV ensure maximum security. Our dedicated and passionate staff offer 1:1 individual attention and care for your dog.

We like you to bring your dogs own bedding, lead, up-to-date vaccination card and any medication/food you’d like us to give. For further details on what to bring, including food, please see our FAQs.


Purpose-built, underfloor heated indoor kennels with personal outdoor space attached. Tiled floors stay cool in the summer months. Larger family kennels available for more than one dog from the same home. 24-hour background radio and night lights, bedtime treats. You're welcome to bring your dogs own bedding, toys and treats to make your dog feel at home during their stay.


Our guests enjoy at least four exercise sessions every day always on grass and with other dog friends for company and playtime. As well as large secure paddocks for off-lead exercise, we offer exciting walks to explore 40 acres of open countryside and native oak woodland.

Water play

Most of our boarding guests absolutely love the opportunity to play in and around water! We have a dog swimming pond on the farm and paddling pools in the runs.

Wash area

Many customers request their dog to have a wash at the end of their stay. The dogs can enjoy plenty of outdoor play on the farm and then go home clean and smelling sweeter! Prices start at £15 for small dogs such as Jack Russells and increase with the dogs size and type of coat.

Hire our secure paddocks

We’re now offering exclusive use of our secure exercise areas. We have three different paddocks available:

  • Poplar Piece – securely enclosed, 6ft high fenced grass paddock under the shade of poplar trees in the afternoon. Watch out for deer across the airfield from here (without your dog being able to chase them!)
  • The Wheat Field – just under an acre of secure fenced grassland (5ft high fences)
  • Woodland Walk – five acres of grassland including an oak woodland and dog swimming pond (5ft high fences)

The cost is £6 for 30 mins for the two enclosed runs and £7 for the Woodland Walk. Please go to our Rates & Bookings page to enquire about availability and request to book a slot. Send us an email if you’d like to book a slot outside of these hours or multiple paddocks. We will try to be as flexible as we can. Timings and availability may vary when lockdown finishes.

Liz has a wonderful regime at Waterloo Kennels. Clean, tidy and warm. Liz and her staff are totally dedicated and the dogs individual needs are the priority. Happy dogs that get proper exercise every day. I am so pleased to have found these kennels as a half-way house for some of our rescued Labradors.

Thank you so much Liz to you and all your lovely staff for all that you have done over this past year for Labrador Rescue. Finding Waterloo Kennels was a real God-send, because you always go the extra mile to help us and the dogs that come your way. It is very much appreciated.
