Luxury Cattery in Newtownards

The Cottage Cattery is a purpose built 5* luxury cattery in Northern Ireland. We are situated just outside Newtownards Co.Down making the cattery perfect for easy access from Newtownards, Bangor, Holywood, Comber, Dundonald and Belfast although we have many customers that travel from much further. Set in peaceful countryside and overlooking landscaped gardens it lends itself to the purrrrrrfect holiday home and environment for your cats.

The cattery will be closed from the 8th Jan to 8th Feb 2024. Bookings will still be available on line during this time. 

Our Accommodation

We have single, double or family purpose built chalets available each with their own heated sleeping area, large secure spacious play area & Lounging shelf.

It must be stressed that only cats from the same family can share.

Each chalet also has a scratching post & you are welcome to bring any other toys you wish. We supply beds & bedding but again you are welcome to bring something familiar.

They each have views over our landscaped gardens or neighbouring countryside offering plenty of mental & visual stimulation & entertainment. There is plenty of natural light & an outdoor feel but not in any way exposed to the elements making it suitable for both indoor & outdoor cats.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my cat bring his own bed & toys?

We supply beds & warm fleecy bedding. We can accept a small blanket that can be easily washed & dried should that be necessary.

Are you open 7 days a week?

Yes we are 

Monday – Friday

10.00am – 10.30am

4.30pm – 5.00pm

Saturday – Sunday

10.00am – 10.30am

We are a small family run business so we kindly ask you to respect our opening hours. 

Can we visit the cattery prior to booking?

Yes we welcome people to view our facilities as we want you to be as relaxed as you can when leaning your feline friend. Viewing is by appointment only, please phone or email the office to arrange. This is to ensure minimal disturbance to our guests & to fit in with busy routine of the cattery. 

Do you let the cats out?

No. Under the rules of our Licence we are not allowed to let the cats out. We also cannot let them into the garden for obvious reasons !

Our gardens have been designed with leafy grassy plants so plenty for the cats to watch as well as the birds! We find that even cats that spend so much time outdoors settle very quickly as there is lots to observe.

My cat has not been neutered/spayed, is he/she able to stay at your hotel?

Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate unneutered cats who are over six months of age.

Sometimes my two cats don’t get on. Can they be separated if required?

Some families who have two cats prefer to pay for a unit for each cat. We can arrange for them to board beside or near to each other & share for part of the day so that the cats can spend time together but also have the option of having a bit more space when they need to. You can choose exactly what you would like us to do.

Can I request a double chalet for my single cat ?

Yes. If we have a double chalet available you can upgrade but you will be charged the rate of 2 cats sharing

Do you accept cats on medications?

Yes! Michelle is a qualified veterinary nurse so medicating cats during their stay is not a problem.

Do you accept diabetic cats on insulin injections?

Yes! There is a small surcharge for these cat injections.
