A well fed dog is a happy dog and we cater for all dietary requirements!
We provide only the highest quality veterinary approved pet food to our guests, which comes in a range of flavour varieties and rotated throughout a guests stay to ensure maximum anticipation and enjoyment at feeding time. Wet and dry foods catered for and we are also happy to maintain preferred feeding regimes. However with this service owners are required to bring their pets food with them.

Wellbeing & Welfare

We all love going on holiday but for some encountering new and strange surroundings can be a daunting experience. We want guests at Barton Lodge to feel immediately at home so we encourage owners to bring with them favourite items such as toys and bedding & blankets so that their dog feels as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
We provide “Snuggle Cushions” which really help your pet keep calm whilst you’re away. Please bring with you an old t-shirt that you have worn, or maybe a pillow case from your bed and we put them inside our snuggle cushions so that they have your scent with them at all times.
At Barton Lodge we care passionately about our guests and will treat your dog as our own giving it all the attention it needs to ensure it settles in quickly and enjoys its time with us to the full.

Security & Safety

The security and safety of guests is of paramount importance to us. We have extensive CCTV cameras throughout the facility that are monitored from reception during the working day and have a constant security presence throughout the night.

Individual Suites

Accommodation at Barton Lodge is ‘all suite’ with each room coming with its own separate leisure and sleeping areas. Each of our dog guests enjoy a private, fully covered area, where they can relax throughout the day and a separate quiet area where they can settle down and snooze! Each suite has been designed to keep guests as comfortable and contented as possible. They benefit from a temperature controlled environment that ensures the suites are cosy in the winter and cool in the summer and an outdoor aspect. We have a number of suites that are fully equipped with a cctv viewing service for owners who like to see how their pet is getting on.

Chauffeured Airport Service

The run up to going on holiday can be a stressful time, so for your assistance we can offer a full Airport shuttle and a completely secure Airport Parking service.    Simply arrive at Barton Lodge at a pre-arranged time with your cases and pet and let us do the rest for you.    Leave your car within our secure parking area, when you drop off your pet and let us shuttle you to the airport departure point in our fabulous Bentley Arnage limousine. When you land after your holiday, just give us a quick call and we will be there to bring you back.


If medication needs to be administered this will be undertaken provided the animal accepts the medication without resistance, and that it can be administered by one of our non-veterinary qualified team.
