Business overview

Your pets home from home

Broad Oak Kennels is situated in over 8 acres of rural countryside.

We are a small family run business. Rupert and Clare Farrant have owned and managed the business since August 2012, thereby achieving a long held ambition to run our own boarding kennels.

Established in 1963. The kennels are inspected and licensed by the local council authority and are able to board up to 48 dogs.

We love all breeds from German Shepherds to Chihuahuas. We have established a loyal and regular clientele and have gained many new customers including the dogs of the Sussex Police, via their recommendation and vets who are known to recommend us to their clients.

Although most of our customers live within a 20 mile radius including Hastings, Rye and Tenterden but we also have clients who travel much further (i.e. London, Oxford, Tunbridge Wells, Brighton, Ashford, Lewes etc.) because they consider it worth their while to bring their pets to us.

poorly pup= unhappy client
Although our dog appeared to have been ok on his overnight stay he sadly became ill within 24 hours of coming home and ended up at the vet. I contacted the owners to report my concerns and was treated very flippantly. I will not risk my boy's health again.

The best in the area
We needed to find kennels for our German Shepherd and had viewed quite a number in the area but had been very disappointed at what we had found and was getting very worried as we had a holiday booked. The last to view just so happened to be the "jewel in the crown". It is safe to say that we do not have the easiest of dogs and when viewing decided to be totally honest and told Rupert and Claire how bad Dots can be but this did not phase them at all. The kennels and kitchen area are spotlessly clean and even though we took our own bedding we noticed that she had been given an extra duvet in her kennel. This is most definitely a five star doggy hotel and we cannot thank Rupert enough for the time and attention he gave Dots and the text message he sent us after we left her to put our minds at rest. Thank you so much Rupert, Claire and the kennel girls for all your hard work, you should be very proud of yourselves.

'The Boys' love it here.
My 2 Black Labs and Border Terrier have been boarding at Broad Oak Kennels for several years on and off now while we take family holidays. They are always very excited to be dropped off and I get the impression that it's a home from home for them! Rupert and Claire and their team are always very accomodating and will always try to fit 'The Boys' in even at short notice. They always return happy and clean and I have no hesitation in bringing them back when needed. The facilities at the kennels are well maintained inside and out and there is plenty of space to exercise the dogs. All in all I couldn't recommend Broad Oak Kennels enough to anyone who wants their dog(s) to be safe and sound and for their owners to have peace of mind that they're being well looked after. A big thank you to Rupert and Claire!

Wonderful care
My 10 month old Weirmarana pup is extremely well cared for here. He is excited to get out of the car to see Rupert and is always healthy and happy when I come and collect him. We travel nearly an hour to Broadoak but it is entirely worth the journey to leave Archie in such a caring establishment.

Excellent Care
I would highly recomend the professional service given by Claire, Rupert and their team of Kennel Maids. Peter my large lurcher is always very happy to arrive here and can't wait to hop out of the car and into the care of Rupert or Claire ! I feel that he is always well looked after and always comes home again with a very relaxed and contented demeanour. There are no transitional difficulties from home to kennel environment or visa versa and in fact Peter has lost his habit of jumping up to greet people since he has stayed at Broad Oak Kennels which is a great help to me. Having always been slightly reluctant to use kennels for dog care in the past i now feel 100% confident that well run kennels such as Broad Oak provide the highest standards of care and are run with kindness, compassion and with a genuine fondness towards all dogs.
