Services

& rates

Our specially designed facility sits in a quiet and beautiful rural setting, looking out into gardens and lawn, with plenty of bird activity to safely watch. Our cattery is designed with every cat in mind, cats that like to socialise, cats that like to hide, cats that are shy and those that just like to be on their own. We do our absolute best to care for your friend, and everything is done on the cat's terms.

Accommodation types

We have individual multi-level runs with their own outside area and large playroom. There are individual sleeping units with igloos which are heated during winter and cooled during summer. We also offer a large play area for the cats to get to know each other, looking out at gardens and birdlife. Be sure to talk to us about your cat's needs, we want your friend to have the space that is just right for them.

Great cattery- lovely set up in the trees, Our kitten was there with the previous owners & loved it, & new owners are really fantastic too. They made our holiday so easy by coming to collect her from our house & dropping her off again afterwards- this made organising everything before flights etc. so much easier. There were many cool places for her to play & our girls loved looking at photos and videos online while we were away. She’s settled back in beautifully- our girls were very happy to enjoy lots of cuddles with her once they woke up after an overnight flight! Thank you Gareth & Jo for looking after her & for making it so much easier with the pick-up & drop off too xx
