Welcome to our Wishing Well - built during the miners strike by my brothers.

Wishing Well

A busy family run Kennels & Cattery in the heart of South Yorkshire (26 years).

Delightful aspects overlooking open countryside - the Deer Farm & Wentworth Castle.

Collection & Delivery available.

Greensprings Caravan Park, Worsbro Mill, Wigfield Farm Park & Locke Park are all within a short distance of us. We are situated only a short drive from the M1 Motorway using either junction 36 or 37. Off Hound Hill Lane.

Are you invited to take your companion into his holiday home area?

Do you see the area where he/she is staying during your holiday?

Are you allowed into the boarding area?

Do you collect your companion from his allocated pen?

If not why?

We are offering a valuable service to our boarders striving to make them feel secure and at home, we feel it is far less stressful for all cats and dogs and owners that our boarders are escorted by you directly to their prepared unit and collected from the same unit on your return. Therefore we do not use holding pens at any stage of your cats or dogs holiday. This will leave you with the peace of mind that your companion is settled in his or her new environment before you leave.


Main KennelLarge pens built on in an L shape, not many boarding facilities can offer a room with a view with all the pens!  All our rooms have a view there is plenty to see and lots to bark and meow at.
















Part of our drive showing  the area where medium and  smaller dogs live/board, they can only see dogs opposite (corridor design) and have no physical contact with any other dogs, it also has the added advantage your pet will not feel alone. The side walls of each  pen are brick, again no fear of any dog being able to intimidate your family companion.





Front Garden










We cater for 84 dogs & 28  cats,

large breeds -larger pens and for families with 2 or more dogs. Open aspect - a room with a view.

All animals boarding can be seen as you enter the property.

 Special diets catered for.


We can house 1 or more cats in the same pen, depending on your wishes, a home from home having a large indoor area with a warm,  heated sleeping area, thermally insulated cat sleeping cabins (from Italy)  plus an outside balcony.

Each of our units for DOGS AND CATS are thoroughly cleansed before accepting a new arrival and kept to the same high standard throughout your pets stay. Cleaning is twice daily. Fresh water is always available and we aim to keep our boarders on the same diet as they are normally fed to avoid stress and digestive upsets (guests can,  if they wish bring their pets special diet).


All pets dogs/cats will be closely monitored for any signs of ill health and a veterinary surgeon consulted upon the first signs of any illness. Please ensure you bring your pet's vaccination certificate with you on arrival, boarders arriving without an up to date vaccination certificate cannot be accepted.

Any questions?

Just ask for Tom, Jan or Julie, we will help all we can to make your pet as comfortable as possible whilst you are away.

 Please take time to visit & look around all kennels and catteries before you decide where you want your pet to stay whilst you are on holiday.

No appointment required, we are proud of our service, but please, visit business hours only.
