Amazing first stay at woodland nook cattery

Our British short hair recently stayed with Jane at Woodland Nook cattery for 8 nights. Upon arrival Jane was very friendly and welcoming and the setting of the cattery was peaceful. We were given a tour of the cattery itself and then we settled our cat into her lodge. The lodge was spacious and comforting and felt like a home from home with the single bed, TV, cushions, and outdoor catio space which was perfect for bird watching! Jane provided updates and photos on WhatsApp which helped us feel at ease. Our cat returned home after the 8 nights happy as normal and was clearly well looked after. We will definitely be using this cattery going forward and would recommend to all friends and family. We can’t thank Jane enough for making our first cattery experience so simple and at ease for ourselves and our cat.

Exceptional cattery - You can be assured your Kitty will be in safe hands while you're away.

Left our Bengal with Jayne and the team while we went away in August. They are a very needy bread, but we knew he would be in safe hands because we have used the Cattery before with a previous cat. The way the rooms are set up is like a cat village. These are not kennels, or cages. They are holiday cottages for cats, each having at least one room and set out like rooms in a house, with beds, TVs, kitchen cabinets, washing machine etc. The whole place is exceptional and the staff are incredible people too. Jayne and her husband are both cat mad and you can rest assured, they will bond with your cat while you're away. They really understand the needs of cats and their owners.

We will definately be using this Cattery again.

Thank you Jayne.

Nothing else comes close.

We have just collected our cat Billy after his third stay with Jayne and Paul at Woodland nook. We left him for two weeks and could not have been happier with his care. Jayne's experience and dedication really shows in everything she does. The facilities are exceptional and everything is considered to ensure the cats have the most amazing time. He was relaxed and happy when we collected him. The photos and messages we received whilst away were very reassuring and it just helps us relax completely knowing he is so well cared for and safe. I cannot recommend this cattery highly enough and we would not consider letting Billy stay anywhere else. We have already booked his next stay when we collected him today. Thankyou to both Jayne and Paul for their dedication and care both to the cats and owners.

A holiday home beyond compare!

The facilities and care provided here by Jane and her family are exemplary. The 'guests' want for nothing at all. We took our cat to stay for a week and she'd never been away before so naturally we were concerned. She tried to scale the walls when we first dropped her off but we needn't have worried at all. Jane sent us daily updates and photos of how she was coping. Within 24 hours she was relaxed and wandering around inside her own miniature home. She loved the fact she had areas she could sit in and smell fresh air and hear/see the birds. Jane made sure she was happy and content and she made the most of it all. When we called to collect her, rather than her panicked and manic like we had almost expected, she was calm, relaxed and in some ways seemed almost disappointed to be leaving. Happy to say that she quickly settled back into her routine after we got home too so no legacy concerns. Honestly, we cannot recommend Woodland Nook highly enough - 5 stars hardly does it justice.

Amazing care and dedication to the welfare of feline residents

I’m so grateful to Jane and her husband for taking such good care of my girl. First time in a cattery (she is 14 years old) and the two brief trial visits set her up wonderfully for her stay of 12 days. She can be a bit challenging, but Jane’s knowledge, patience and encouragement (and obvious love of cats) worked magic until Luna’s confidence improved and she was eating well and venturing out from her hiding place. Lovely accommodation for cats, in a peaceful, interesting setting. Highly recommend this cattery for feline companions. Luna already booked in for September.
