Testimonials

No words can describe how wonderful and valuable this place is. When we finally had to put our Labrador to sleep after a long illness we couldn’t bear to take him home. Summerleaze allowed us to come at very late notice straight from the vets for a personalised service.

Michael Palmer

When we lost our beautiful boy Bryn just a few weeks ago we decided to have him cremated and his ashes returned to us what a lovely peaceful place Summerleaze is and the staff are truly amazing thoughtful compassionate and caring thank you so much.

Lynne Barry

Summerleaze was used by our vet who told me they had excellent reputation. His lovely scattering tube was in a box decorated with little coloured corn sheaf. He will be going into a beautiful garden pot planted with a special rose. So pleased he was treated with care and dignity.
