Welcome to South Wales’ first purpose built dog facilities. Our Secure Dog Adventure and Dog Sensory parks offer a safe, secure and enriching environment for you and your dog to enjoy some quality, one-to-one time together. Our Luxury Dog Hotel offers a 5 star, premium stay for your pup. As the first purpose-built Luxury Dog Hotel in South Wales, here at The Cwtch we offer a daily routine that incorporates the perfect amount of physical stimulation, social interaction, mental enrichment and human company.


After 30+ years in the corporate world I was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2015, and due to the treatment process, I was forced to drop out of work whilst I recovered. This was when I had the time to re evaluate my life and prioritise what was important going forward, and without sounding too cliche’, I realised that life really is too short to not do what makes you happy and excites you! Luckily I got the all clear in 2021! 

I started the long process of writing my business plan in 2015, shortly after my diagnosis. During this time, I realised just how much there is a need for dog facilities in our local area and as a new dog owner myself, I also realised just how difficult it was to find places to walk dogs locally, in a safe and secure environment, especially whilst in the process of training recall and building trust between dog and owner. This experience made me even more determined to start up The Cwtch. 


With the business plan all signed off in 2017, we then began the long hunt for the right place to bring our idea to life. My husband Stephen and I began looking at land for sale in the local area but each all came with their own problems, such as drainage, access or location.


Luck was on our side in 2020 when we came across Little Cwrt Bach Farm. A run down, 29 acre plot nestled in the countryside of Henllys, just 1.6 miles from Cwmbran and 3.6 miles from Newport. We put in our offer and moved in during the Summer of 2020, peak lockdown. It was everything I could have imagined and more! So much work needed to be done but it was the perfect place for our business and I couldn’t have been more grateful. 


We spent our lockdown days, fighting with overgrown brambles, ripping out old broken fences and slowly bringing our vision to life. With the after effects of covid holding up the plans for building our luxury dog accommodation, we turned our attention to creating the Dog Adventure Park, a completely secure, stimulating and enriching environment where dog owners can spend one to one time with their dog(s), worry and stress free with no interruptions or distractions.

We are now well into our journey of The Cwtch and we couldn't be prouder. It has been so amazing to see our vision come to life and watch our parks being enjoyed by all types of dogs and owners. We are also extremely proud to have received over 500+ 5 star reviews on Facebook and google, as well as winning 2 awards, one for 'Best New Pet Business of the Year 2022' and 'Best Pet Business Marketer of the Year 2022'.


We are a family run business that combine knowledge and experience with professionalism and a passion for the love of animals. A superior, 5*environment that is safe, stimulating, fun and loving.


We believe that all dogs should be able to enjoy the freedom and stimulation that off-lead play and adventure can offer them. We believe that all dog owners should have a safe space where they can develop and nurture that ever growing and very special bond between them and their dog. 


 Here at The Cwtch, our mission is to be the home of adventure and secure parks in South Wales. Dogs deserve to have their own space, where they can sniff, climb, stretch, run and work all of their muscle groups and develop strength and confidence whilst doing so.
