Fiveways Kennels and Cattery provides the best care for your pet!



About Us

The Francis family have run Fiveways Kennels for over 15 years and are a well-established boarding kennels set in 6 acres of beautiful Suffolk countryside. We are located in Barton Mills Just off the A11. We believe that animals placed in our care should be treated as if they were our own, because we understand the trepidation with which owners leave their much loved pets with others. Therefore when they come here to stay, we aim to make their stay as much an enjoyable holiday as the one their owners are having.  Contact us here.


We have sixteen single kennels and seven family size kennels. Our services include two daily walks off lead, feeding, playing with your pet.  You can rely on us whether you’re away for a few days or weeks. And we are just a bark or, meow away!

Inspections are welcome and no appointment is necessary, please pop along during our opening hours.

NB Please don't let kennels bath/clean your dog on day of departure. Some kennels say they walk/excise but don't, this means your animal has to use the kennel as a toilet, they then get cleaned, so hiding smell/ mess...
