Welcome to the gatehouse cattery

Why we are different from other catteries

We will give your cats love and cuddles while they are with us and we will spend time settling them in and will not leave them to cry if they don't settle straight away, we will love them as if they were our own and give them dedicated play and cuddle times. We are happy to take cats which haven't been in a cattery before, cats which have had a bad experience in another cattery or just cats who are adored by their 'parents' and who want a cattery which provides special, individual attention. We will also make sure they eat with us and won't leave them hungry, we will tempt them with lots of 'yummy' food including fresh chicken, fish, prawns or tuna in spring water. All our suites are centrally heated so your cat/s will be 'toastie' when they come for their holiday with us!

A recent review

"Misty has been staying at The Gatehouse Cattery since one week after they opened. She sees it has her home from home and when we are away we never worry about her and know she is being well looked after with lots of love and cuddles. They always do their best to fit us in and accommodate us and they are, without a doubt, the best cat hotel there is. Thank you Lisette and Freyafor everything you do and for always looking after our little lady so well! Looking forward to seeing you next time! Love Nicky, Howard and Misty xx"

we are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the highest standard of licence available to boarding catteries - 5 stars. this has been achieved by offering facilities far in excess of what is required by the new government legislation.
