Carr Hall Boarding Kennels & Cattery

2 Carr Hall Cottage, Duddon Ave, Darwen BB3 0LB, UK – 01254 703253

The only place I would ever leave my pets. Total peace of mind. My two dogs had their own little holiday with people who truly care about their guests. My dog regularly goes on his walk past Carr hall and always wags his tail as we pass. That was 3 years since he boarded there and he's not forgotten the family and kindness. Definitely a 5☆ from a very fussy dog owner. 🤗

My dog loved his stay. Friendly family run business. Definitely recommend
