A Stunning

COUNTRYSIDE SETTING

Owned and managed by the Ryder family, our brand new hotel is located just outside the village of Cawthorne in South Yorkshire, just 10 minutes from junctions 37 or 38 of the M1.  The hotel is right next to our house, set within its own specially designed gardens, with views of the countryside beyond.  We offer a safe and secure environment where guests enjoy round the clock care, cuddles and attention.  As a small, family run hotel, we can treat each guest as an individual, to ensure they enjoy a comfortable, entertaining, and stress free stay with us.

SPACIOUS INDOOR ROOMS

Cawthorne Cat Hotel has been built to our own bespoke design, incorporating the latest welfare standards. All of our rooms are more than 1½ times bigger than standard boarding cattery pens; spacious for one, and ideal for families of two or more cats to share, with enough room for all guests to find their own personal space.

OUR SPECIALLY DESIGNED GARDEN

All rooms overlook a brand new feline-friendly garden, designed to attract birds, bees and butterflies.  The planting includes ornamental grasses to provide movement, and scented plants which cats love, including six different varieties of catnip and catmint!  Guests can enjoy the garden from their sunny, indoor window seats, or from their large outdoor balconies. 

BUILT TO THE HIGHEST WELFARE STANDARDS

Using the highest quality materials throughout, our rooms are hygienic and spotlessly clean.  Our facilities far exceed council licensing and vet requirements, and are fully insured.

TESTIMONIALS

"We had looked at other cattery’s/hotels and to be honest none of them even came close to this...I could not recommend Cawthorne Cat Hotel strongly enough and we are about to book it again for our Summer holiday! Thank you so much Jennifer!"

PRINCE AND FREYA'S DAD

"Our cat Millie has just come back from a 3 day stay at Cawthorne cat hotel, what a fantastic place!! Jennifer goes that extra mile to ensure the cats feel calm and comfortable, and keeps in touch sending videos and photographs. I would definitely recommend Cawthorne cat hotel."

MILLIE'S MUM

"Bertie usually hates being away from home but she heartily recommends Cawthorne Cat Hotel.
Jennifer is a real cat lover and this shows in her attention to detail and the affection she lavishes on her guests. A wonderful place."

BERTIE'S MUM

"Will not send my boys anywhere else now! I can't recommend this place enough!"

FINN AND JAKE'S MUM

"Chicken is a timid cat and has had the best possible care. Jennifer and Owen have spent hours playing with her, talking to her and coaxing her out of hiding. They kept me informed at every point of her stay with messages, photos and videos of her progress. I couldn’t recommend them enough. I wouldn’t dream of sending her anywhere else when I go away"

CHICKEN'S MUM

"This isn’t a money making cat hotel this is first class care with first class facilities... I can honestly say I don’t think they wanted to come home! Thank you again so much Jennifer and Christina you are the best!!"

SNUGGLES AND DOLLY'S MUM

MINNIE'S MUM

KINKAJOU'S MUM

"Where do I begin? Cawthorne Cat Hotel is simply wonderful and I’d love to leave more than 5 stars! The rooms are super spacious and have everything your cats need and more! The care and attention doesn’t stop there, Jennifer is the best cat whisperer I’ve ever met and it’s obvious to anyone how passionate she is about the hotel and it’s guests. From balconies to heated floors, regular changes of toys so the guests don’t get bored and beds and climbing trees a plenty, Cawthorne Cat Hotel has it all. Our 4 cats were so relaxed during their stay (even scaredy cat Maisie). The interconnecting rooms are a genius idea and although one room is more than large enough it’s lovely to have the option for extra space! Millie, Maisie, Moz and Mollie will all be returning again and again!"
