About Us

Welcome to Barks Hotel, my name is Lisa Cartwright. I run my home based dog-boarding business from my beautiful home in semi-rural outskirts of Barnstaple, North Devon.

I am fully licensed and insured, I have a certificate in Animal First Aid and CPR and I actively participate in Continued Professional Development (CPD). I am also DBS checked.
Our Home Dog Boarding Licence number is AWL0007 ( Expiry December 2021)

I am able to tailor your dogs’ stay to its individual needs, whether it be longer off-lead walks, gentle shorter walks, or calm respite for older or infirm dogs with quiet garden time. I am always on hand to cuddle, play or just keep your dog company.

What else do we offer?

• Regular photo and video updates based on your specific request

• Pick up and drop-off service (price tba)

• Designated quiet room for your dog to sleep and chill out in the house next to the kitchen and lounge.

• 3 CleverDog dog cameras in the three main living areas also with infrared and audio.


Lisa, Owner of The Barks Hotel
