Lower Mill Boarding Kennels & Cattery are based in the beautiful countryside on the outskirts of Pontesbury and have been running for 31 years.
We pride ourselves on providing fun and caring accommodation for dogs and cats whilst their owners are on holiday.

We Care About Your Pets


Dogs who stay at Lower Mill are walked at least 4 times a day to provide mental stimulation.
