This place is way beyond anything you can imagine! It is 5++++++ star for your fur baby! Jane has done the most incredible job and it completely took my breath away when I first saw the room my cat was going to stay in! A beautiful heated log cabin, single bed (with duvet & mattress protector so she could snuggle under), flat screen tele, a heated cushion and a lot more! You honestly have to see it to believe it. Jane adores her cats and it's not often that you see the same love applied to other people's cats, but you definitely do here! My cat loved her stay at Woodland Nook as shown on all the photos that Jane sent to me while I was away. Thank you so much Jane - your palace for cats is amazing & I won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone! x
I picked my cat Solo up from his first two week stay at Woodland Nook today and I have never seen him so relaxed and happy after a 'cattery' stay. I say 'cattery' because this place is more like a 5 star resort for cats. Solo stayed in the Sky room with his own tele, double bed, and fire place. I can tell he has really enjoyed his time here from the many photos and emails the lovely Jane sent me through my holiday and how calm he has been since returning home. He is usually quite a nervous cat around new people and hates catteries, he tends to lose weight and not eat when home. He has been the complete opposite to this, much to say he would have probably wanted to stay longer for cuddles with Jane! Jane really cares for her animals and is such a lovely person, I could tell Solo had made a strong connection with her. Woodland Nook is by far the BEST place to take your little family cat. I can not praise Jane enough. x
After having a previously bad experience with boarding our lovely little boy we had searched for somewhere that sounded like luxury and we found it by recommendation from a friend in Woodland Nook!! The rooms are better than some of the hotels I have stayed in. Jane is fantastic and you can see that she totally loves her job and the cats that she is caring for. We were recommended to go and visit before booking which we did and were totally blown away by the beautiful surroundings. We booked straight away!
I added Jane on Facebook as we left and received lovely messages from her while we were away showing quite clearly that Otis was happy and content, all in all a fabulous experience we will definitely be booking Otis in for further holidays in the future.
Woodland Nook has been looking after my 2 cats when I go on holiday for the last 6 years. They are both rescue cats and one of them is particularly nervous - Jane is one of the few people she will allow near her which speaks for itself - Jane treats the cats as her own, and we can go on holiday knowing they are being well looked after, or completely spoilt actually! If Jane can't fit them in we change our holiday dates, I wouldn't consider leaving them anywhere else.
Beautiful cattery,surroundings,accommodation and owner. It's the creme de la creme of all boarding catteries.a perfect place for all my 3 fur babies and 100% piece of mind knowing they are well looked after and loved
WOW!!! What a lovely place!! This was Fluffy's second stay with Jane at Woodland Nook, and certainly not her last!! Heated cabins, with beds and flat screen TV's, set in a lovely area, with a brook babbling by. You could quite happily stay her yourself.
Thank you Jane, we'll see you again soon!!
Seriously, the rooms are that good! This was Saffi's first stay away (She's not yet one year) and she loved it. Auntie Jane even sent us photographs of the pair of them cleaning the room.
We can't recommend Woodland Nook too highly.
Over the years my cat has stayed in a number of catteries and I have visited most of those in my area to find the one I think he will be happiest in. Woodland Nook is by far the best run and most caring cattery that I have found, and even though it is 40 minutes drive from our house, we take him there. We know his physical needs will be cared for, but also that the people who run the cattery genuinely care about the animals that they are looking after. They are cat people themselves, and understand how hard it can be to leave a cat behind. I can unreservedly recommend this cattery to anyone searching for the right place to place their pet.
There are no words to describe what a wonderful cattery this is! My cat stayed whilst I went on my holiday and whilst I was nervous about leaving him it was a great comfort to receive updates and be able to watch him on the webcam looking out at the wonderful scenery and wildlife. He came home very happy, amazing place!
Murphy has just come home from his first 'tester' stay at Woodland Nook. We were delighted to see that he settled in beautifully and are planning to book him in again for a week later this year. His room - not pen!- was a home from home for him, and by all a accounts he took great delight in choosing his daily treat from the 'Specials Board'!
Thank you 'Aunty Jane' for caring from him so well 😻
I have 4 cats. When I go on holiday where they stay is as important as where I stay and that means the only choice is Woodland Nook.
It says it all that when we go to collect them they are sitting content and in no hurry to be off.
I know the care they receive is second to none so that means peace of mind for me while away.
Three of the cats were rescued and need the level of tlc they get.
Auntie Jane is their mum while I'm away.
Can't praise it enough
If Carlsberg made an advert for a Cattery it would be Woodland Nook Boarding Cattery. Sheer luxury for cats and a very special lady (Jane) who loves her job and is so dedicated to her Cattery but also the welfare of many rescue cats both in the uk and abroad. If you need a Cattery look no further, 5 stars all the way! Thank you Jane and also Paul, who builds all the fabulous lodges. 🐾🐾
Not like any other cattery you have encountered! This is luxury living for your pet. So good you might want to stay there there yourself and send Tiddles away on holiday! Jane knows her business well and you know your cat will be treated like royalty while you're away. Real peace of mind for cat owners. Carol.
Becky and Toby love staying with Jane at Woodland Nook.
I would never send them anywhere else, it is clear Jane adores cats and the cattery is like a hotel for cats I would give 10 stars if I could, from the minute I drop them off I am totally relaxed knowing my cats are not only looked after well but are loved as if they were Janes own.
Woodland Nook Cattery is just outstanding! The owner - Jane - has thought of everything to keep your cat in luxurious surroundings. Their own 'proper beds' with duvet and pillows - as well as a cat bed just in case they don't like the proper bed! Spacious 'log cabins' with television, lovely and warm, web-cam available if you want to keep an eye on your cat while you are on holiday. It is just beautiful and I think excellent value for the facilities provided. It's in a lovely quiet area and Jane is just devoted to all her cats so you can be sure she will spoil them ... they might not want to come home ;)
My cat Lissy was looked after so well. The attention she had been given was second to none. When she was collected I'm sure she wasn't bothered about coming home. To be able to leave your cat for a week knowing how much attention and love she will get is brilliant. Thanks Jane and all you volunteers. Margaret E.
We just took back home our 2 bengals from their stay from Jane's cattery.
The cattery has been expertly purposed built and there is a lot which remind a home environment ( bed and even TV).
But more importantly... they clearly received a lot of TLC ... now that we found Jane's place , we wouldn't go anywhere else.
Thank you so much Jane ... to their next visit
Jane was so caring and looked after our elderly cat so lovingly. The fantastic cattery has been cleverly created to cater for your pet's every need. He's already got a return visit booked. What more can I say?
This isn't just any Cattery where you can leave your cats whilst you go off to enjoy yourself this wo
uld qualify for humans as a 5star hotel, Equipped with kitchen beds TV and music,Jane who runs it is very caring treats them as she would her own spent an hour a day with them grooming and playing,Sent us photos of them over Christmas but will webcam if wanted, We have used this cattery twice now and will continue to do so for Puzzles day Pumpkin,The price is so reasonable for the service and care that our cats received, Highly recommend you check this out yourselves,
We were concerned about leaving one of our cats in a cattery as a result of a recent problem which made him very nervous. Jane at Woodland Nook reassured us that she would look after him and certainly kept to her word. She spent a considerable amount of time with him and this was helped by a warm, double glazed and immaculate unit.
On picking him up he was relaxed and quite at home.
Thank you Jane for going the extra mile and we have no hesitation in recommending your cattery to prospective clients.
We have two cats, Katie and George who recent stayed at Woodland Nook Boarding Cattery and without a doubt this is 5* cat accommodation. Your cats will certainly be cared for and well loved by the owner Jane and experience spacious, clean and well kept accommodation. We would not hesitate in recommending the cattery.
Having lost 3 cats in a year to old age, my wife and I decided to be 'pet-free' for a while to give us the freedom to travel etc.
It wasn't long before we realised that our home without a cat was not complete, so approx 12 months later and having contacted a couple of local cat's homes, we found Jane and Woodland Nook.
During our visit, unfortunately we did not find a cat - instead, the cat found us !!! and we agreed to provide a home for a small B&W cat; Katy!
Since then, we have taken Katy back to Woodland Nook on a number of occasions whilst we have travelled. Although there are many cattery's local to us, we have found none that match the quality, cleanliness and commitment of Woodland Nook.
I doubt if we would have this level of confidence with anyone else
We honestly cannot fault this business and will continue to support Jane and Woodland Nook as long as we can
Well done Jane!
I have an elderly cat with health issues but knew that she would be very cared for whilst I was away. Jane who owns the cattery obviously has a passion for caring for cats and this is reflected in the fantastic facility she has created. The rooms have been so carefully thought out with a proper bed and quilt. The rooms are heated and can be be opened so the cats can feel a breeze but without their view being obscured by netting. The setting is very tranquil so even the most timid cat wouldn't have a problem staying there. My cat responds well to being able to hear voices and the large wall mounted tv that she had in her room ensured that she settled very easily. My only concern is that as we live fairly close to Woodlands Nook that my cat Ellie might decide to take herself back there if we don't maintain the same care as she has received from Jane! No hesitation in recommending this cattery!
What can I say about Woodland Nook Boarding Cattery that hasn’t already been said? We have been users of Jane Lynegar catteries for years and would not go anywhere else. Her dedication in providing for your cats every need is first class matched only by her enthusiasm for her cat rescue charity. She definitely does not just like cats – she totally loves them and in turn they all love her. The accommodation is at best, Rolls Royce standard and at worst, Bentley! The attention to detail is outstanding - far in front of any hotel I have stayed in. My two cats have spent time at Woodland Nook and Jane’s previous catteries and we have no hesitation in recommending Jane, her loyal team and her fantastically well equipped cabins to anyone.
Really can't praise Woodland Nook enough, Tilly stayed in one of the log cabins for a week, it was amazing each room is large with a comfy quilt covered bed with a pillow, television and lots of toys, each room also has its own sink for fresh water and a cupboard for food, biscuits and treat, they truly are on their holidays being spoilt to the max! We now have a grumpy Tilly who doesn't want to be home, she would definitely have stayed longer 🐱
