The Animal Country Club is based at Wood Farm near Ongar, Essex. With close proximity to London, Chelmsford, Harlow, Brentwood, Bishops Stortford and Stansted Airport, situated in 70 acres of beautiful countryside, we provide quality kennels and cattery care for the discerning pet owner.

Here at the Animal Country Club, we ensure that your pet is in safe hands and treated with care at all times.

We are still open!!

With UK travel uncertain and international flights very much on hold, it is extremely quiet for the team here at the Animal Country Club! The Spring cleaning has been done – numerous times – and despite all deserving a little rest ourselves (after 35 years of non-stop guests!) this break has left us missing our daily fix of preparing meals, daily walks, play time in the field and cuddles with our furry friends.

We are of course still open and welcoming guests here at the Animal Country Club, and the booking office remains very much open for business and taking both confirmed & provisional reservations for this year through into 2021. Please contact us by email or leave us an answerphone message, both continue to be monitored and a member of our fabulous team will always get back to you with booking requests. Please call 01277 890231 or email us at [email protected]

For those guests that are chilling at home with the humans but would like to stay connected to the Animal Country Club during this time, we will be updating our Facebook page with stories, pictures from the past, and an insight into ‘Lockdown Life at Wood Farm’. Follow us at

On another note, the Grooming Parlour is also now accepting bookings for summer cuts and well deserved baths (I’m sure there are many of our canine friends that have been gallivanting on country walks!) – of course Steph will be following all of the Covid19 distancing guidelines when clients are arriving and collecting their pooches. Please contact us for an appointment.

Finally, we would like to send our very best wishes to you all to stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you to the Animal Country Club soon.
