Local Attractions

Shepherd House Boarding Kennels is located in Thorne, a lively little town in South Yorkshire.

After you have dropped off your furry friend at our kennels, why not head into town to check out some of the attractions.


Our town is situated along the Stainforth and Keadby Canal if you want to go for a walk along the calming water. If you have the kids with you, take them down to the Hatfield marina for some water park activities.

Maybe there is a train enthusiast amongst the family, Thorne’s Memorial Park Miniature Railway would be a perfect trip out for them. There is also the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft if buses are more up their street.

Looking for a golfing weekend? Thorne golf course has been established since 1980 and it’s only 10 mins away from the M180. They have a pro shop, a bar, and weekly competitions. You can even receive lessons & coaching! The golf course has 18 holes, open 7 days a week and has been designed to be used all year round.

There is another course nearby at Kingswood Golf Centre. With its pirate theme, this course is great fun for the whole family, including the adults! Their centre also offers a restaurant, weddings and accommodation. As well as standard golf, if the adventure golf isn’t for you.

If none of this peaks your interest, Thorne has plenty of pubs, cafes, shops, a garden centre, a leisure centre and a bowling club.

We are also close to Doncaster if you need to get some shopping done in time for birthdays or the holidays. With their enormous shopping centre ‘Frenchgate’ you can be sure to find what you are looking for.
