Hello, we are Sandra and Andrew, owners and proprietors of the brand new High Peak Cats Lodge

We are situated in the heart of the Peak District on the outskirts of the famous Spa town of Buxton, located in the grounds of our 4-acre smallholding.

We are a luxury small boarding cattery providing safe and secure housing for your beloved cat/s when you go away on your holidays, or you could bring your cat on holiday with you whilst you visit the Derbyshire countryside…Chatsworth House, Castleton Caves and Buxton Opera House are all close to hand.

We are a four-star High Peak Borough Council Licenced Cattery (HPK/AB0109) and fully insured with Cliverton Insurance.

The brand new block of luxury accommodation was purpose-built in January 2020 by Peticular Pens, who we chose for their quality workmanship and cutting edge design.
Each pen is made to DEFRA higher standard 2019, constructed with fire retardant, self-extinguishing UPVC.

(We are equal to a 5* but can’t be a 5* until we have been trading 3 years)



We are Sandra and Andrew and we live in Buxton in the beautiful Peak District countryside on a 4-acre smallholding.

Having owned cats from an early age and particularly having a love for cats, we talked about boarding cats many years ago and now we have fulfilled our dream of building a luxury boarding cattery (phase 1) due to open Spring 2020.

We have more recently been small hobby breeders and have shown British Shorthairs successfully over the last 10 years. We currently have 4 British Shorthairs that rule the house, Merlyn our original stud boy who is neutered and aged now, bless him, Milly one of our stud girls and 2 boys from different litters Gizmo and Womble. We also have 2 horses, Indi and Molly who can be seen keeping the grass down in the fields.

Since our children grew up and left home we found the house was quiet and noisy, so for the last 7 years, we have been fostering children.

We are now set for our dream to come true, to have a business from home that we both love doing. Sandra is trained to International Cat Care running of a boarding establishment standard, and the brand new cattery Suites have been built and erected by Peticular Pens to the latest Animal Welfare standards with thermostatically controlled sleeping quarters and extended exercise areas and with extra insulation to keep snug in those cold winters.

We look forward to welcoming you and your fur baby/ies.
