Our boarding service is very special. We offer a truly unique home from home boarding experience with our guests living with us as part of the family - we are not a boarding kennels.


We are able to accommodate dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages.


Our guests can truly relax and enjoy their stay at House of Barks safe in the knowledge that we will welcome them into our home and tailor their stay to meet their individual needs.


We have no cages or kennels just comfy dog friendly sofas, lots of comfy dog beds, evenings snoozing in front of one of the wood burning stoves and an acre of secure dog friendly garden to play in and explore.

Walks for our guests are well planned and vary according to each individual dog's needs. We walk in open countryside, local woodlands and on the fabulous sandy beaches along the North Norfolk coast.  Walks can be on or off the lead and we only walk dogs off the lead with your written consent.  Dogs will only be let off the lead in a safe environment and when we are 100% comfortable with their recall. All walks will be age/health appropriate
