About our Boarding Cattery

I owned and Ran a Boarding kennels and cattery in France for 8 years with my husband and loved looking after peoples Cats and dogs.Having moved back to England in 2015 and having a good size garden my husband and i decided to build a cattery.
I have had all different types of animals from a young age and throughout my life including horses.I have 8 years experience of running/owning my own kennels and cattery.I am currently studying for a diploma in Pet Care /veterinary assisting.I have my own 3 cats that we rescued as kittens in France and brought back with us from France.They live happily in their own outside cattery enclosure.We also have pet dogs they live in the house with us but would like to re-assure our clients that the cattery building is in a separate part of our garden surrounded with a 5 ft fence so the cats in our care neither hear or see our dogs and that our dogs are forbidden to enter this area of the garden.


Spacious cattery with 3 larger than usual double pens and 1 single pen with walk in units insulated and heated (so making it warm in winter and cool in the summer). 2 raised shelves (in the sleeping area) either side for the cats to jump up onto to sleep or just lazy around one end has a viewing window.The single unit has one raised shelf inside and a viewing window to the side looking outside .Each unit has a Cat flap to allow the cats access to the run 24/7 (but can be locked at night should the owner wish). The sleeping units have thermostatically controlled panel heaters and Vinyl flooring The outer run also has vinyl flooring to make more comfortable and warmer for the cats, there is a viewing shelf a chair with cushion and a activity scratch post.The bottom half of the run is a solid white pvc plastic wall and at the top it has clear acrylic sneeze barriers .For piece of mind the Cattery is fitted with smoke detectors connected to mains with an outside alarm siren.The cattery building has outside removable acrylic windows on the top half so that they can be taken out during the summer months,meaning the cats get plenty of fresh air in the summer and are left in for protection from the elements during the winter months. There is a lockable cat flap between the single and double and the 2 doubles for us to accomodate 3/4 cats.


Large runs plenty of room for the cats to play and also for clients to bring extra scratching posts and toys if they wish.
We are only a small cattery so can provide lots of play cuddles and individual attention.

Health & Hygiene:

Firstly cats must be vaccinated against Cat Flu and Feline Enteritis .Vaccination certificates will need to seen on the day of arrival (your certificates will be kept with us in a safe place until your return)Newly vaccinated cats/kittens will need to have the second follow up vaccination (usually after 3 weeks after the first one ) before coming into the cattery .
All the units inside have white Hygienic wash down wall panels which are easy to clean and disinfect and also vinyl flooring which can be easily washed.The runs have white Hygienic plastic wash down panels on the bottom half and thick acrylic clear plastic sneeze barriers on the top so no cats from the next pens can come into contact with each other.
Newly vaccinated cats need to have the follow up vaccine (normally 3 weeks after the first one)before being able to come into the cattery .Cats should be wormed and treated for fleas prior to coming into the cattery .Should any fleas be present on your cat/s they will have to stay in isolation unit and we will immediately treat your cat/s (usually front line spot on and we will need to spray treat the isolation and contents unit also) the charge for this will be added onto the boarding fees. Sorry we can not accept intact males older than 8 months of age.

Thank you Sharon for looking after our two rabbits! Lovely peaceful surroundings and wonderful accommodation for them! It’s nice to find a place where rabbits have room to roam and are not just kept in a cage! We went on holiday for a week knowing they were well looked after! Would recommend!

I would like to say that we were very impressed with the cattery.It's extremely clean,and quiet for our 2 cats,which we wanted,a home from home! Sharon and Terry seem to be a caring couple who are more than happy to look after our cats as if they were their own!!We highly reccomend any cats to have their holiday here!!!
