About us

We are a luxury boarding cattery set in Ranskill a beautiful rural location just on the outskirts of Blyth on the B6405 just 3 miles from Bawtry.

As cat lovers and owners it seemed only natural we want to provide cats with the best possible holiday experience.

Right from the start we decided that we would offer a combination of extra large luxury rooms and high-quality care, with the aim that cats enjoy their stay, come home relaxed, healthy and looking good, and allowing their owners to enjoy their own holiday in the knowledge that their cat is enjoying theirs.

We aim to provide a really first class "hotel" for your cat with all their needs met and we invite you to explore our web-site and see for yourself just how different we are from many other catteries in what we provide and offer. Nothing however compares to seeing it with your own eyes first, and visitors are always welcome by prior arrangement for a viewing.

We currently only have housing for cats.

At WhiteGates cattery we provide luxury accomidation and care for cats.

Our Luxury Penthouse units are much larger than the standard size for a single cat, so you can feel happy knowing that your cat/cats have maximum room when he/she says here with us.

The bedrooms are large and heated as well as having 100mm insulation in the walls so that its warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Each room has a lower level providing maximum space for exercise as well as having seating points for a fabulous view of the the surrounding countryside

To add to the experience all of out pens have full view of our pond and waterfall.

Our cats are fed morning and evenings with wet food Felix as good as it looks pouches (Kitten or Senior varieties where appropriate). Fresh water and dry food is available at all times. Simular other foods can be supplied on request if prior notice is given.

Room Sizes.
  • Exercise area – 2.3m x 1.5m
  • Sleeping Quarters – 1.2m x 1m
Special diets

If your cat is on a special diet for medical reasons please provide us with supplies to cover the length of stay.

Vaccination Certificates

On arrival all cats must have their vacination card with them showing that they are fully up to date with all their vaccines. This will stay with us throughout their stay.

Can I also please ask that your cat/cats have been flead (the latest 3 days before arrival) and wormed prior to their stay with us to prevent infestation.


All days are charged for including "day in" (eg if you drop your cat up at 6.00pm you get charged for that day) and for the "day out" unless you collected your cat(s) before 11am when no charge will be made for this day as I still have time to sanitise the cabin for the next guest.

Being animal lovers we have a cat and 3 dogs of our own that are kept in our home well away from the Cattery
