About the Cattery....

We are a newly purpose built Cattery in a rural setting over looking a well established garden in the picturesque village of Dishforth.

We are a small and family run establishment and are able to give all our guests our very personal attention.
 The Cattery
The Cattery is of the higest quality timber construction with hygienic wipe clean linings to the chalets. The building and design exceeds all current standards and the Cattery is roofed in translucent sheets that enhance its light and airy feel whilst avoiding the dangers of direct sunlight.
All chalets are separated by an air gap as is current best practice to reduce the risk of cross infection. Each chalet is fully insulated and individually heated with its own exclusive run. We provide plastic beds with a blanket and quilt. Accommodation is mainly a double chalet or 2 adjoining chalets can be connected into double chalets for larger families. Accommodation is available both on the level for more infirm cats or penthouse style for the more adventurous.
