We bought our chocolate labrador, Tilly, in April 2016. She has just turned 4 years old (Jan 2020) and is the most wonderful young lady around. Her tempermant is wonderful, great around children, loyal, obedient and we would be lost without her! She is a small labrador and loves water and everything that smells nice! If you want to see how she has grown up there are plenty of photos of her on my instagram: Thank you Manorroy for a wonderful addition to our family! We recommend you everywhere. x

He has the best temperament of any dog we?ve ever owned and is a credit to the breeders. 5 kids, 3 cats and never a problem. Thank you Pam!

We have just taken home yet another puppy from Pam and Simon. This will be our 3rd over the last 16years. Our new puppy is settling in well with our 5year old. I wouldn't have a puppy from anywhere else and would recommend Pam and Simon to anyone and everyone. They raise amazing puppies. Bright, happy and well adjusted. We will be returning owners for as many years as possible. Thank you both for letting us give your puppies a home for life. X

Hi there, we got our dalmatian Jupiter (Manorroy Raven) in April 2011 and just wanted to say how well he is getting on. He's a lovely big boy (even though he was the smallest in the litter!) and is very handsome, he still smiles all the time, which is adorable!! My son was 4 when we got Jupe and they are now the best of friends. Couldn't be happier with him, very many thanks :)

Hi Pam & Simon Thankyou so much for all the support and advice you have given us in breeding our gorgeous Dalmatian Tulla. She has given birth to 6 adorable pups. 4 boys and 2 girls. Well done to Jack. I will send you photo's over the next few weeks so you can see them grow. Thanks again Amanda

Hi Simon and Pam just to let you know that our Dalmatian named River is doing brilliantly. She is an absolute star and we love her to bits. She is very calm, sweet natured and loving. We are often asked by people if she is a bit bonkers, Dallys seem to have this reputation, the opposite couldnt be more true, she is totally laid back, easy going and beautiful to boot. We live locally so I mean to drop by with her sometime to show you what a great job you did! Kinds regards Caz Evans

I had one of your pups many years ago, Manorroy Motsam, son of Sandylands Stardandy. Sadly, he died approx 12 years ago. I have been unable to have a dog up to now, but next Spring will probably be the time. I'll be in touch to see what male pups are available around then. He was such a lovely boy, if a bit dense...

Hi Simon and Pam, just wanted to let you know how our lovely pups are doing. Libby is the old girl we got from you 11 years ago and she is still loving the beach! Mhia and Elijah went on holiday for the first time and enjoyed every minute of it. The pups will be a year old on Saturday. They are both FULL of character. Mhia smiles all the time:D and Elijah loves cuddles and toys. They are all such a joy to be around. We don't even notice that Elijah is deaf - it makes NO difference at all. He responds to hand signals and he is simply perfect! Thank you both for such lovely dogs - they are a credit to you XX

Hi Simon and Pam A quick update on Monty (Manorroy Mission Complete), who at 7 months is still learning that he is not top dog! He has grown into a handsome lad and gets compliments all of the time from his adoring public. He likes nothing better than mud and snow now that he's completley dismantled our garden.


8:13 AM on January 23, 2010

Hi Simon and Pam Thought a thank you was long overdue! George (Manorroy Muttley Maguire) is gorgeous. He makes us laugh every day and is a joy to have around - even when he's being cheeky. We also get comments about how handsome he is - or how mucky he is as he loves mud and puddles! Thanks again, Nicky & George x


6:39 AM on January 17, 2010

Hi Pam, Just clearing the computer and came across the link we used to find you a year and bit ago. Hope you are all surviving the snow! Thought I would take the opportunity to post a comment. Max (Manorroy Mystery Lad) has turned into the most fantastic dog, his training is still continuing! Really nice to see his picture on your site, the Setter, last picture on the "Our Dogs" sections. He hasn't changed much since that picture, maybe a little more hair! His temperament is superb, the most friendly dog you can imagine, always wanting to do more than just please. Thanks to you and this website we found the English Setter breed and now cant imagine life without them. Best Wishes. Richard

Just found your website! We bought Black Labrador Manoroy Moon Legend (Duke) 5 1/2 years ago. He is a fabulous dog,and I had to smile when I saw one of your other messages that said people stop to admire how handsome their dog is, as we get this comment all the time. Duke is SUCH a wonderful dog we really could not have wished for more so big thank you. (Are his Mum & Dad "Digger" & "Abbey" still going strong?) Jane & Martyn Petters - Bedford

Dear Pam and Simon, We bought Philly (chocolate lab) from Manorroy at the beginning of October, we've had her just over a month now, and we are enjoying her so much. She's lovely natured, keen to learn and to please and is already almost house trained, can sit, stay and lie down and is good off the lead too. Thank you for a lovely puppy-a great addition to our family.


5:49 PM on October 16, 2008

Hi just found your site and had to put a comment: I bought a black lab from you 3 and half years ago, he was born on 25th may 2005 and cannot explain how wonderful he has been, I did bring him back to see you a few years ago, his name is Harvey (Manorroy Master Cobbler) I have so many people stop me about how handsome he is and what a unique face he has and my vets love him as he is so good and loves going to see them!! My daughter would be lost without him and they idolise each other, he is a huge part of our family. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend anyone to buy a puppy from you they are amazing.

Hi Pam and Simon Wanted to officially thank you for your help and advice when we bought Daisy our Dalmation from you in May. She has a lovely character and our kids adore her. She was very easy to house train and we have given your wesite details to loads of people who have stopped and admired her. Thanks again, she is looking forward to coming to stay in October!

Hi guys Bought Treacle (black lab) a week ago from you and she has settled in really well. She is pretty much house trained already which is fantastic for us. She is keeping us both entertained with her kangaroo jump impression and darting from one end of the room to the other. She is so energetic and has a fantastic and very cheeky personality. We can't believe how much she has come on and grown since we got her. She is a well loved newcomer to our home. Thanks for everything.

Hi pam and simon we have had molly three weeks now and we have never looked back she has a brillant personality i think thanks to the way she was able to run in your garden it has been easy to house train her. The vet commented on how well she looks and that he can tell she has come from a good breeder. thanks once again tracey chris and molly.

Hi, I bought a black labrador puppy from Pam and Simon about 4 weeks ago. She settled in great. We take Poppy to puppy club every week and the trainer uses Poppy to show all the other puppies what to do as the trainer says she is very inteligent. We have already taught Poppy so much in the 4 weeks we have had her. she is fully house trained and lead trained. It literally takes 2 minutes to train her something. She loves meeting new people and is very outgoing. I would highly recommend buying a puppy from Pam and Simon as ours has a very good temperament, is great with people, she loves children and our kitten. kerri & james :D

3:16 PM on April 27, 2008

Just found your website again, after changing computers,(thank goodness) !! Although we haven't had much cause to speak to Pam again, everything has been plain sailing with our beautiful Macy who is now 1yr and 3mths old, when we have done, Pam has been very helpful, caring and quick to respond. We find it very difficult to imagine our lives without Macy now.


5:45 PM on April 11, 2008

We now have the two beautiful English Setters - Rosie and Ruby. Pam and Simon have been knowledgeable, informative and reassuring. The kennels are spotless and the dogs happy with everything open to view. Simon and Pam always pleased to see committed new owners. We say - highly commended. John & Val

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the service that you have provided from when we first came to 'choose' Aston at 2 weeks of age until we collected him last Saturday. My son has so enjoyed the experience of visiting him regularly before we brought him home which enabled him the opportunity to put it all into context and appreciate the commitment. Aston is settling in so well and is already such a part of the family. I would not hesitate in recommending your service to other people; friendly, knowledgeable, always on the end of an e-mail for advice and most importantly; healthy, well-cared for dogs and puppies.


4:45 AM on April 8, 2008

tracey groves

12:26 PM on April 7, 2008

we would just like to say how impressed we were when we came over to choose our pup. We could tell from the first step into your yard that the place was clean and the dogs were well looked after and the breeding side was run with the pups in mind. The only problem for us was not being able to take all of the litter home ha ha. We are all looking forward to our new member of the family and of course will keep in touch. regards tracey and chris :D


10:26 AM on March 22, 2008

Pam & Simon, Just to let you know, Bracken has settled down beautifully, she loves our cat Tom and they sleep in her basket together and when they are in the lounge he lies between her front paws. She is definately loving her retirement and is an absolute joy to us. Kevin and Ann
