The following charges are per chalet, per day and include food; most popular brands are available. Special dietary requirements can be catered for by arrangement.

Chalet Accommodation
Each cat is assigned their own individual chalet. Up to three cats may share a chalet, though of course this only applies when the cats are all from the same household.

Rates For Boarding (applicable from 01-02-2023):

Per chalet Off-peak Peak*
1 cat £12.00 £13.75
2 cats sharing £18.50 £20.50
3 cats sharing £22.50 £24.00

Energy Increase Charge: during colder months there will be an additional charge of £1.50 + VAT per chalet per day.

Please note that all prices stated are per day and exclude VAT which will be added to the total fee at the rate of 20%

During the colder months our chalet heat lamps will be running 24/7 to keep our feline guests cosy and warm. With the ever-increasing price of energy I have, regretfully, found it necessary to add an extra charge to help cover these costs. Thank you for your understanding.
