We have the pleasure of looking after many amazing cats.

We love that each cat is unique and therefore deserves a personalised experience.

Our cattery provides everything your cat needs for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

"We have used this cattery for over 17 years and can't recommend them highly enough. Martin and Halina are welcoming, friendly and professional. The pens are roomy, clean, safe and well equipped, not to mention lovely surroundings. My cats always return happy and healthy having enjoyed their holidays, thank you both."

We serve the following menu to our guests:

Felix as good as it looks, Whiskas Simply, Sheba trays and copious amounts of tinned tuna in spring water for those who enjoy it. The dried food option is Royal Canin Sensible 33, which is a quality dried kibble that suits most palates. We can also, at no extra cost, freshly prepare poached white fish or chicken if you wish to supply it.


A full day's board is charged for the day of arrival and departure to allow for essential disinfection and preparation of the chalet.


Payment of boarding fees will be made at the time of collection or, in the case of long term boarders, accounts will be paid monthly.

If paying by bank transfer, please pay in full at the time of drop off.


In the event of owners returning before the end of the period for which the cat is booked, the full period will be charged for.


On Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year's Day, charges are at double rate. 


There is a 3 day minimum charge.
