Best cattery around! I trust Carol 100% with my cat and know if there were any problems she’d sort them straight away. I can rest easy on holiday knowing my cat is being well cared for ❤️

Happy Cats & Their Human Companions

We appreciate that entrusting a beloved family member into someone else’s care can be daunting.

We are committed to providing the highest possible standards of safety, hygiene, comfort and security to our guests.
​Our daily focus is on creating an environment whereby every guest feels stimulated, content and completely at home with us at Maidenlands Cattery.

Our luxury accommodation is purpose built and new in July 2009, with the first guests booked to arrive shortly after.
Set in the beautiful South Lakeland countryside, we offer a peaceful and tranquil setting for our guests.

Each of the luxury chalets is fully insulated and individually heated.

Prior to booking we are delighted to encourage all owners who have not visited Maidenlands Cattery before to arrange a viewing of our bespoke facilities.

Of course we understand that due to working lifestyles this is not always possible, but we believe it to be a help towards achieving that all important peace of mind before going away. It also gives us chance to discuss the needs and diets of our guests’ holiday with us.

Sharing is only available to compatible cats from the same household. Please contact us for dropping off times and tariff.

If contact of the owner or the owner’s representative is not possible any treatment deemed necessary will be carried out without the owner’s consent.
  • We will be responsible for any veterinary fees (up to £700) incurred through a medical condition developing with a cat whilst being boarded. We will NOT be responsible for any veterinary fees incurred whilst boarding for a cat which develops a medical condition that it has a history of previously suffering from, or for a cat which enters the cattery with an ongoing medical condition, and these veterinary fees will be charged to the owner.
  • Boarding rates are charged on a daily basis including the day of arrival and departure, and include all food (except prescription diets), beddings, litter, chalet heating and insurance.
  • We supply and feed as instructed by the owners as near as possible. However alternative diets/ brands may be fed if difficulties are found obtaining the cat’s usual food, or if the cat is not eating its usual diet, then an alternative will be offered.

  • We must be informed before the drop off day of any changes or cancellation to a reservation. If we are not notified before the booked drop off day’s owners will be charged for the full reserved period if they are shortening the original booking. If extra days to those already booked are required, providing there is a space available, they will be charged for accordingly. When a booking requires amending you are advised to inform us as soon as possible to avoid problems and disappointment when arriving to board.
  • Payment is required at the commencement of the boarded period. Cats will not be released until full payment is received.
  • Please be aware that if you are booking boarding for the following year, the tariff may have altered from the time of booking to when you board, as prices are reviewed each year, with any changes being implemented from 1st January.
  • Cats must be transported in secure and suitable pet travel carrier.
  • We require a contact number of a friend, neighbour, relative or owner’s mobile phone number in the likelihood of you being delayed or problem in picking up your cat. You will need to arrange for someone to be available to collect your cat on your behalf if necessary, as we cannot guarantee to be able to hold your cat for an extra day. Please inform us of the standby collectors contact details when you drop your cat off for boarding.
  • All belongings are left at the owner’s risk. Any items left unclaimed by owners after two months following boarding will be disposed of.

  • We will administer medication to manageable cats. However, should a cat risk causing harm to cattery staff or to itself whilst medication is trying to be administered resulting in it being impossible to treat the cat, then it may be necessary for the cat to be cared for by a veterinary surgeon either at the cattery or at the veterinary surgery. Any veterinary fees incurred in this will be charged to the owner of the cat.
  • The grooming of the cats will be carried out as necessary, and it is appreciated if owners have their own grooming equipment that they bring it in with the cat. However, we will not be responsible for grooming any cat that gets distressed or risks causing harm to staff whilst being groomed.
