Customer Reviews

Penny Gowing - "I'm really impressed with the service Mayfield Cattery provide. The home visits have worked particularly well for us as it means that our cat is happy and well looked after. I would definitely recommend them." 

Claire Mailer - "Extremely grateful that Debbie was able to help out at short notice and for taking such good care of our cats. Very impressed with the facilities, larger than the standard you would expect, very clean and well thought out "rooms". A special thanks for the email we received a couple of days into their stay letting us know that they were doing well - as this was the first time they had ever been left, this helped put our minds at rest. Both cats have been as good as gold since their return, and it is obvious that they were very well looked after. Must remember to continue with the "Fresh Fish" Friday treat!! We will definitely call on your services again."

Monica - "This is not a cattery it is a cat HOTEL! The standard of accommodation is fantastic and the care Debbie lavishes on her guests is second to none! Thanks Debbie for providing a real home from home and making going away so much more relaxing knowing B and TL are happy and well cared for! There facilities are brand new, very spacious and come with all the comforts a cat could dream of! They have gone beyond the call of duty, providing us with updates while away, offering a fresh fish Friday and picking up and delivering the kittens from our home. Highly recommended!!"

Katharine Stanley - "Thank you soooo much! Wilbur and Willow were so happy with you that they seem almost disappointed to be home! They are both looking healthy and happy and have obviously been well loved and cared for. I can't recommend Mayfield Cattery enough."

Jackie and Leon - "A lovely family caring cattery. Everything nice and new and very safe. Highly recommended."

Rosie Pickersgill - "It was good to leave my cat with such nice, caring people. The home visits worked very well and I came home to an unstressed cat. I'll certainly book him into the cattery for longer holidays when you open next month."

Dawn Bee - "A lovely cattery, very pleased with how Debbie cared for my Jetty. When I collected him he seemed happy and healthy. I would highly recommend this cattery to all my family and friends."

Sabine Rendell - "Our Cat Cinders loved the Cattery. We came back after 2 weeks to a very happy and relax cat. I think he thought he was on holidays too! We really appreciated the texts during his stay to let us know he was doing well. Debbie even took the time to brush him so he would look his best when I picked him up . I would really recommend but a bit worried I won't have a place for Cinders next time if the reviews are too good!!!!"

Amy Jones - "Thank you so much for looking after Teddy! He was so loved and cared for during his stay and has settled back home so quickly. It was great having text updates to see how he was settling in too. I would highly recommend Mayfield Cattery!"

Elizabeth Blayden - I am so glad to have found such a lovely place for our kitten to stay - it looks like she had a great time. The facilities are excellent. Debbie was fantastic and sent me updates. Highly recommended.

Ali-Lou - Shadow, my Sphynx, is my baby. I was worried about him going to a new cattery. Silly me, he had a ball !! He was loved like he was one of their own. Thankyou so much guys

Lou Jones - My tenisey pants is my baby, i was so worried, HOW wrong I was, i have had a birthday card piccie from her, pictures, and lots of contact to let me know all was FINE! She is rounder in the tum, and looks so well. I cant thank Debs enough, and will certainly be recommending this cattery to all i know!

Mr & Mrs Giles - We left our two ragdolls with Debbie for around 30 days in between moving house. It took them a day or two to really settle (They are hugely fussy cats) but they were soon happy as can be. They were spoilt with Waitrose ham, salmon fillets, and Friday fish day (all foods we never knew they would eat!) Debbie was attentive throughout, sending regular texts to let us know how they were getting on, a great touch. I cannot stress enough how impressed we were with the whole service, from start to finish. She even allowed us to visit in the evenings (as much as this was probably an inconvenience). It will be our first and only choice the next time we need to use a cattery, a truly first class service.

Sarah Hodgson - I had to spend some time abroad and was desperately unhappy about where to leave daisy, my 15 year old beautiful tabby. My mum had just been unwell so that was not an option and all my friends were unable to help as they all have dogs! I found Mayfield Cattery by chance in the local magazine and went immediately to see them. Wow. What lovely people. I could tell that they adored animals and that daisy would be well looked after and loved. While I was away, Debbie emailed me weekly and sent me pics of daisy who looked so happy I could hear her purring, nearly! When I picked daisy up she was in lovely condition and really relaxed and happy. She settled in really well once we were home too and this is because she was happy and confident. We got a loyalty card and daisy will certainly be returning to mayfield cattery if ever I need somewhere safe, loving and fun for her again. Daisy means everything to me, and I knew she was in the good hands of Mayfield Cattery who loved her as much as I do.

Boyd Neale - Bindi has stayed at Mayfield Cattery twice now, it is like a 5 star hotel for cats, and I get the impression Bindi really enjoys the 5 star treatment she gets! She is so well cared for and it puts my mind at rest that whilst I am away, in my 3 star hotel, she is enjoying the 5 star comforts of the cattery! Debbie and all those who help are excellent and obviously treat the cats like their own. Every time I need to go away, Bindi will insist on being looked after by Debbie. If only Bindi could use the internet, and there was a Trip Advisor for catteries, she would without doubt give the Mayfield Cattery a 5 star rating.

Amy Manktelow - This was tinkerbelle the cat and Bailey the rabbit was there first ever stay at Mayfield Cattery with Debbie and her family which they enjoyed there stay and the love and care they recieved while I was away was everything I expected and Debbie and everyone was so friendly with great customer care towards me and my animals. Nothing was too much trouble and they was happy to come to my own home to pick them up and bring them back to me also i fell poorly so it was good to know they could stay there Til I was well enough for them to return home to me. I will be using them again to send my animals here Wenever I need them looking after I would highly recommend everyone to Debbie so if u know your going away everyone please get in touch with Debbie she is your person to look after your pets and is a huge animal lover.

Frances Lewis

Maisie had a wonderful holiday here - thank you. Loved the updates too on how she was settling in and this attention to detail was really appreciated and meant we were able to relax knowing she was in such good hands. Thoroughly recommended

Laura Manktelow

This is the first ever time I had left my cat Jessie and my rabbit Roger with complete strangers, from the first contact with Debbie via email I knew that Mayfield Cattery was the perfect place for my animals. They had a 2 week stay and when I went to pick them up this morning Roger did not want to leave. Throughout my holiday Debbie sent photos and email updates which really put my mind at rest, they were throughly spoilt! Jessie was in her element with all the fish that was given to her. The Cattery itself is clean with good size rooms for the animals, what makes it even better is that it is a family run business from home, the cats get plenty of cuddles all times of the day. I cannot praise Debbie enough and there is no way that I would ever send them anywhere else, this cattery is a true gem, I cannot recommend it highly enough.


Our two young cats (just under a year old) had never been away from us before, so we were very concerned about leaving them for two whole weeks. We needn't have been. While we were enjoying our holiday, Debbie sent us texts and photos, and even a video, to show us how relaxed and happy they were. When we got back, Debbie even delivered them to us in their own carrier. They were both lean and fit and healthy. We couldn't be happier. Thank you, Debbie.

Cathy Callow

I was so worried about leaving my kittens for the first time. Two weeks felt like forever! Debbie was so lovely and made them both feel right at home. She sent me pictures and videos of the cats having a great time and lots of fuss and cuddles which my Burmese need! I was able to bring my own food and they had plenty of space to run and play in. It was also exceptionally clean. I wouldn't hesitate to use Mayfield Cattery again. Thank you so much Debbie :-)

Mauricea South

Left my old boy Tigger in Debbie's capable hands at Mayfield Cattery for one week this August. At 14 years old he had never spent any time in a cattery and I was really worried it would upset and distress him. I really couldn't have been more wrong! Debbie updated me how he was doing, which was a lovely touch and put my mind at rest. When we arrived home from our holidays we found a very happy (slightly chubbier) Tigger, who had clearly been spoilt rotten. Mayfield Cattery came as a recommendation to me and I would not hesitate to now do the same to anyone looking for a loving, safe and well run, 'All Inclusive Cat Hotel'!! Thanks so much Debbie and the gang xx 

Claire Heaver

Duchess loved her holiday with you, your cattery is so homely, clean and we could feel the love when we walked in ....and we loved our updated emails which helped us relax and feel happy that she was happy ....THANK YOU...we will definitely come back xxx

Melissa Kingdon-Leach

Merlin loved his stay with you and he says sorry for biting your mums foot !!

Pauline Marsh

I must admit to feeling anxious the first time I left Stan,Ollie,Bertie & Ellie with Debbie & family. They've recently stayed for a second time and I was really impressed at how chilled they all were when I arrived to collect them, only Bertie came to greet meThankyou Debbie for providing such a caring, cosy environment for our pets, much appreciated.

Philippa Preece

Debbie & family are not your average cattery, they really do go above & beyond to look after your cats. Not only is the cattery like a plush hotel for cats, but the cats are spoilt rotten with attention & food & the communication throughout their stay in brilliant. Our cat pickle starts purring every time he goes through the door which speaks for itself! We recently had to put our little pickle in after a car accident meant extensive surgery & that he was on strict 'cage rest' during his initial recovery. Debbie went to enormous lengths to accommodate his every need & looked after him so well that I'm surprised he wanted to come home! It really is an exceptional cattery & I can't recommend it enough.

Clare Cox

Callie, Muji and Luca have just come back from their second holiday at Mayfield Cattery and they have clearly had a wonderful time. This is by far the finest cat hotel I have ever known and what makes it so special is the love and care they receive from Debbie and family. Special thanks for the hand-knitted Christmas stockings and to Debbie for bringing them home to save us having to get up early and collect them after Christmas. All three are looking forward to their next stay!

Paula Chapman

This has been Ripley's second stay now and it only gets better. He has been so looked after that he did not want to leave! You can truely see that Debbie loves what she does. The regular updates on how he is doing is really the fact that Debbie goes the extra mile. 5* and more for our kitty. Thank you

Laura Manktelow

This is the second time Debbie has looked after Jessie and my rabbit Roger, as before the care was fantastic, I really could not recommend Mayfield Cattery enough. Receiving photos whilst away is lovely, it really puts your mind at ease when leaving members of your family with someone else. You really can see from all the cats staying that they are all really happy to be there and I am sure most do not want to leave!

Allison Day

We were going on holiday and didn't know what on earth we'd do with our cat. She's feral, and doesn't take well to strangers. Debbie said she'd feed her at our home, but I didn't have a lot of hope that she'd be able to entice Puss to eat, or even come anywhere near the house while we were away. I needn't have worried at all! Debbie called every day, and wonder of wonders Puss came every day to feed. We came back to one happy, calm and well fed cat! Debbie has the magic touch with cats! Thank you so much Debbie. I can't recommend Mayfield Cattery highly enough!


BOO loved her holiday here! She was really stressed on arrival, but when we picked her up she was extremely happy and affectionate. She is even more loving at home after her experience! 100% recommend!!! Staff are so lovely and friendly and you can really see their passion for cats! BOO will be coming back for her next holiday in the future! Thank you again x 5 star rating 

Alison Packham

Very happy with Debbie's home service for our cats, rabbits and fish. The cats got a hand knitted Christmas stocking full of kitty presents! Will definitely be using Debbie's services again. Good value for money.

Maria Fernandes

Haven’t been there BUT SOUNDS SO GIID esp wen yr cat is yr family you wd feel so at ease thank you

Cheryl Goodsell

I wouldn’t send my cats to anyone else, Debbie is so caring and with little added extras that make the stay so much more relaxing for owners and cats. The most lovely touch is that I always receive a text message after a couple of days telling me how our cats are getting on, such a nice touch.

Kirsty Parsons

Mayfield cattery are amazing ! Our cat mikey has stayed with them twice now and honestly I wouldn’t send him anywhere else, he is so well looked after when’s he’s there and always comes home so happy :) thank you all at mayfield cattery :)

Claire Palastanga

A cattery like none other, I felt happy leaving my cat here knowing she would receive lots of love and care from Debbie, in homely surroundings. In fact she was reluctant to leave when the time came to take her home! I cannot recommend this cattery enough. I do not know of any quite like it! Thank you Debbie x

Sheilagh Rowland

My cat Brambles stayed here for a fortnight last year and he is going to stay a fortnight next year. Fab Cattery. He was looked after first class,it was like a 5 star hotel. If you are in any doubt about where to board your cat,this is the place.

Sally Aldis

Very kindly left us a 5 star rating on google. Thank you Sally

Thomas Chaplin

Really nice place, owner is very friendly, helpful and clearly cares. Great value for money, would highly recommend and plan to use again in future.

Another 5 star rating left for us on google Thanks so much Thomas

Graham Marley

Our 2 cats stayed at Mayfield Cattery and were very well looked after. Debbie also kept us in touch with how they were doing and sent photos which was a really nice touch.

Would not hesitate to recommend and use again

Vicky Flaherty

I can’t recommend Debbie and her team highly enough. Whenever my gorgeous cat Ziggy stayed with them she was happy and calm, being fussed and brushed, she loved that Debbie interacted with her. Unfortunately we said goodbye to our beautiful little cat on 26th September, she was very shy and anxious but was always calm and relaxed with Debbie. If your cat has special needs this is the perfect place where your best friend will be cared for and pampered.

Martin and Anne

Debbie is all our cat could ask for. Definitely five stars! 

Julie Northfield


Just a short note to say a big Thank You for looking after Ralphie so well. He has come home after three weeks a very calm and happy cat; infact, I think he enjoyed himself so much with you he would’ve been happy to stay!

He was clearly loved and well cared for and we will definitely bring him back when we go away again.

Many thanks,

Julie Northfield

Camilla Hicks

Our 4 month old kitten stayed at Mayfield Cattery for a week. We were nervous to leave him for the first time but Debbie was brilliant - she sent us updates and a picture whilst we were away. When we returned Smudge was happy and he had managed to climb to new heights. He clearly had a great bond with Debbie. We highly recommend this cattery and we are already booked in for future holidays!


Ghaleb has left us a 5 star review today ! Thank you so much Ghaleb we do appreciate you taking time to leave us a review.

Dorothy & Kyra

Dear Debbie

A belated but nevertheless sincere thank you for enabling us to have a relaxed and super holiday knowing that our precious old girl Daisy was having excellent care.

Many Thanks

Best Wishes

Pauline Coxshall

Hi Debbie

Just wanted to say a big thank you for looking after Fergus and Xia so well. They got back home and just fell back into their normal routine, as relaxed as they normally are. Obviously quite okay with their week’s confinement.

Many thanks again.

Best wishes


Sarah Herman

Thank you for taking such good care of Nova! We were a bit apprehensive as it was the first time we had left him. We didn’t need to be, Debbie took such good care of him and sent us updates on how he was. We booked straight away fro his stay when we next go away!

Judith Herbert

Thank you so much for looking after our lovely cats, Rio and Reggie at such short notice while we had some work done in the kitchen at home! They were so well looked after and enjoyed the fuss made of them by Debbie. The cat "rooms" are quite opulent and their every need was catered for! We will definitely be using Mayfied Cattery again and would recommend it to all cat lovers!


Debbie is just wonderful. You can tell that she truly cares about all the cats and looks after them beautifully. She would send me pictures of my cat, Grace, when I was away, to reassure me that all was well. I highly recommend Mayfield Cattery.


 Many many thanks for looking after our girls at your 5* hotel. We were able to enjoy our long awaited holiday knowing they were safe and being well cared for. Can honestly say it’s the first time we’ve been away that we haven’t been given the silent treatment for a few days after, so they were obviously very happy staying with you. Which is why we have booked with you again. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to any fellow cat lovers

Kerstin Thompson 

Thank you so much for looking after Willow so well. She seemed to settle in straight away and the room was great. Debbie was fantastic with Willow and kept us updated on how she was doing which was so reassuring and meant we could relax and enjoy our holiday. We are already looking at another break now we know Willow will be cared for so well and would highly recommend Mayfield Cattery.
