Sharon Dedman
Hi Sandra and Gerry...Ozzie and Maya settled back home like they had never been away, sleeping a lot as you said after their big holiday. Quite handy with the jet lag!!! They are so fit and healthy and have had such a great time at Bethells.

The photos were a huge comfort, every morning I would be there with my cuppa to see them. Just skyped Dad, he was very impressed with Maya's new swimming abs.

Photos aside, what helped me was knowing from meeting you what genuine, animal loving people you are. And the farmstay itself...it's all about the dogs!!!

I did not worry about my babies at all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Sharon, Ozzie and Maya.


Hilary Chidlow
After six weeks we picked up a very happy and contented Ellie who has clearly had a ball! We are so grateful for the loving care and attention given to our special rescue girl. This is the first time that we have left her and it was clear from all the fabulous photos that all the dogs were being cared for in a very special way. This is no ordinary kennel... it is simply the best! Thanks so much Sandra and Gerry for the wonderful caring and stimulating environment that you provide - your passion for what you do is clear for all to see. I will be recommending you to all our dog owner friends!


Jo Campbell
We have just collected Milo after a 3.5 week stay at Bethells. It was his first stay and we would have no hesitation in using BFFD again. This is the longest period we have ever left him for but we knew he would be very well cared for, have a blast and that we would have nothing to worry about. The many and regular photos on Facebook were great for seeing what antics he was getting up to and Sandra's willingness to take emails and calls during his call to see how he was going was great. He is happy, healthy and at this moment, reacquainting himself with the house, garden and his toys. Thanks BFFD for providing a fabulous facility.


Karen Bryant

Frances Joseph
My ten year old ridgeback mastiff cross Kohl has just stayed a week at Bethell’s Farmstay for dogs and, as always, he has had a wonderful time. He's quite old and I dont like leaving him but he always looks so healthy and happy after a holiday at the Farmstay. Thank you Sandra and Gerry for taking such great care of him. When I am away I really enjoy being able to look at the Facebook photos of him swimming and playing. You both have a special way with dogs. I highly recommend the Farmstay for its beautiful setting, high standards of care and cleanliness, and above all because the dogs you look after are always so happy and well looked after.


Christina Townsend
Pip has a fabulous time here and misses her canine and human friends once she's home again. She's just had a 5 week stay and again been very happy, thanks to all the family caring for her.


Jill Bloxham
This place is amazing. Our puppy Beau had a fantastic time and made so many friends. I think she is a little bit down since we picked her up as she hasn't got all her friends to play with. Thank you so much for looking after our baby girl. Will bringing her back again for sure.

Leonie Legg
My k9's Charlie and Ruby had 10 days at bethells farmstay their first time visit...I went away knowing that they were in safe hands and will be well looked after..Sandra took Ruby to the vet and I knew I needn't worry. What a wonderful holiday my k9's had, they had a blast there and I would have no hesitations about taking them back there or recommending to anyone. What a fabulous place. . Thanks Sandra snd Gerry


Cathy O'Connor
Just picked up Harlow (bendy bus) after her holiday. Clearly she has had an awesome time and has been looked after superbly well. Loved being able to check up on her via many Facebook photos while we were away. Thank you BFFD. She will be back :)


Alla Boglaeva
Fantastic place for your pup. My 4month old loved his time there. He ran around like mad with all the others and the daily uploaded photos made it seem like his holiday was more fun than mine. It's the only place that is just so much fun that your pup won't even know you're gone.


Liza Shieff
What a great place!!!! It is a dog's heaven!!!! We left a very insecure puppy who was so scared to meet other dogs and people after just few days we came to pick up a very confident puppy who now likes to meet other dogs!!!! The best place to leave your four leg friend :) it is a real luxury retreat for any dog!!!! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR WORK Sandra and Gerry!!!!!


Toshie Komai
What an awesome place, if dogs could send postcards I'm sure they would from here. Oscar was so happy and healthy, we will have no hesitation in booking him in next year if there is room for the little fella!

Paula Cagney
Jess had a great stay at Bethells Farmstay and is now crashed out asleep. It was her first stay and we are so relieved and happy she was safe and had a great time. Gerry and Sandra are lovely people and you can tell the really care for the dogs in their care and the fact Gerry has so much experience with greyhounds is just an extra bonus! Wholeheartedly recommended and I think Jess is definitely looking forward to her next stay!


Jacqui Dimes
There could be nowhere better to leave your dogs than in the care of Sandra and Gerry. They have an innate sense of how to settle dogs and keep them stress free and having fun. All our family dogs love it. Thank you.


Harp Davenport
These guys are awesome. I have no hesitation leaving my dogs here. My dogs come back happy and tired. This is the best kennels I have seen by far.


Paula Swan
Thoroughly recommend Bethells Farmstay for Dogs. Our two dogs Ozzie and Joey hate been away from home but were very very happy here and well cared for. It is just like being at home but better with other dogs for company and plenty of interesting places to run and have fun. There is heaps of human contact and cuddles. Also really impressive Gerry and Sandy gradually introduced our dogs to those already there making sure they were comfortable - in other places they have been dumped in amongst the group something that our dogs are not comfortable with. They post heaps of pictures so you can see what they are up to and respond to all queries promptly and with care. Clearly these are people who really love dogs. I can't recommend this farm stay for dogs highly enough.


Andrew Yeadon
Molly & Jack absolutely love coming to stay with you guys, Molly is usually so reluctant to go anywhere, but as soon as she knows where she's going, she gets so excited! Jack just loves having a run around with all his mates when he gets there!


Susan Campbell-Morrison
Thanks for looking after Wags again he has such a wonderful holiday, think he misses all his mates tho. Love all the photos on Facebook. Thanks again for all the wonderful care you guys give all the dogs


Tori Kaye
"Brodie has had the most fabulous 2 weeks at Bethells farmstay. Sandra cares so much about the dogs that I'm sure Brodie wishes he was still there playing out in the paddock with the other friendly dogs all day long and eating home cooked meals! I was initially very worried about putting him into a kennel but when I found Bethells Farmstay on the internet and saw all the pictures of the dogs playing and their warm little houses in I knew it was the right place for him. It is doggy heaven and miles better than a home away from home. I don't think Brodie missed me or thought about me for a second! Thank you so much Sandra & Gerry!"


Diane Sparrow
"Beau has been with Sandra for 5 years and we have left him with her while we have travelled overseas for 6-8 weeks and also short stays. He just adores it at Bethells farmstay and our peace of mind while away is essential to us in choosing a place for our boy to stay. Thanks Sandra, Gerry & Family. AWESOME"


Tracey Ashton
"This is the BEST place to take your doggie loved ones when you go away. Our two labs Jack and Holly have been regulars over the past year and they LOVE it and I'm sure are in doggie heaven!! We know when we go away that they are in great hands with Sandra and we don't have to worry one bit. They are practically climbing out of the car when I drop them off so eager to get out to see Sandra and explore the fields. We went away for a few weeks and when we picked them up they looked so well ... really toned through all the exercise and their coats were gleaming .. happy puppies indeed. Bethells Farmstay is like a spa holiday for your dog ... and knocks spots off every other kennel I have visited."


Susan Powell
"I have to agree with the earlier review, the owner of this doggie farmstay is delightful and my precious shitzu x bichon had her own gorgeous little cubby house with verandah and front porch complete with hanging flower baskets - absolutely top marks. I was even under the impression that peaches was content to stay when we picked her up. The cleanliness and homeliness of Bethells Farmstay for Dogs was without a doubt one of the best I have come across, I only hope that not too many people find out about it, because it might become hard to get into - in the future."


Sonia Hinton
"Wow!, this place is an absolute Heaven for Dogs. The owners are fantastic, warm, loving and friendly people. You can be sure your darling doggie is in great hands here. My puppy Diego had an absolute ball here and I'm sure he is looking forward to us going on holiday again, so that he can go on holiday at Bethells Farmstay for Dogs again :) Thanks for taking excellent care of our wee baby dog."
