We have been boarding our three cats at Elm Cottage for two years now and would not leave them anywhere else. The runs are spacious and imaginatively designed with plenty of apparatus to keep them amused and interested. They have a warm and comfortable house to sleep in at night and their own little beds. I always have complete peace of mind when I leave them with Karen as I know they will be well cared for.


I have used Elm Cottage Cattery for the past 8 years – usually 2-3 times a year. My elderly cat, Sam was always happy there and I know he was well looked after. The cattery is set in countryside and provides a safe and comfortable environment for cats – I would not hesitate to recommend to others

I now have two new cats who have settled in well and have spent several holidays with Karen

I just wanted to say thank you so much for looking after our beloved cat “Mew Mew” while we were away. She came back a lot happier than from previous cattery’s and she didn’t feel as though she had lost any weight. I can tell when she has been distressed as she is such a home loving cat and she seemed perfectly fine. We were very happy with your services and will never put her anywhere else. I would recommend you to other people and you are very fair on prices.Thank you so much and it was so nice to meet someone who is as loving to cats as we are.

This was the first time I have boarded my cats “Alfie” and “Ruby” with Karen at Elm Cottage Cattery and Karen looked after them like they were her own. What I was most impressed with is that Karen even managed to pick up Alfie {who normally shies away from anybody except me}a big plus in my book. I would definitely recommend Elm Cottage Cattery and will always board my cats here from now on. Linda


Elm Cottage Cattery is a wonderful quiet cattery. Our cat “Sunday” had to be there for a month, only having  rehomed her from the Blue Cross in August, four months previously, we were worried that she might feel abandoned. However, nothing could be further from the truth. She has been content and seemed to have enjoyed every minute of it. She has settled back in at home perfectly. Five stars to Elm Cottage Cattery.
