Orchard Suites & Orchard Master Suites
Individually Controlled Heating
Built with state-of-the-art insulated panels, suites remain warm in winter and cool in summer. Individually controlled thermostatic radiators keep the set temperature to within 0.1⁰ and will keep your cat snug and warm when the temperature outside drops. The digital thermostats allow the temperature to be adjusted to cater for any guest so whether you have a Sphynx who needs to maintain body temperature or an elderly cat who enjoys the warmth, we can cater for everyone’s needs.
Comfortable & Stylish
Each suite features a bedroom area with stylish cosy beds and a bright lounge/exercise area featuring relaxing armchairs, sturdy cat trees and toys. With low level window sills and a choice of other resting places your cat can relax, enjoy the view or watch the many birds that visit the orchard.
Largest Suites in Cornwall
Space was one of the main considerations for us when we designed the cattery. All suites far exceed the recommended guidelines for space and we are proud to say they are the largest in Cornwall. Our Orchard Suites boast a massive 75 square foot of space (7 square metres) and measure 6’6” x 11’6” (2m x 3.5m) and our Orchard Master Suites are an unrivalled 115 square foot (10.5 square metres) and measure 10’ x 11’6” (3 X 3.5m). That’s as big as, and in some cases bigger than many household bedrooms!
Specialist safety flooring and wall cladding provides an impervious, easy to clean and safe environment in all of our suites. This allows for the highest levels of hygiene and all of our suites are thoroughly and meticulously cleaned between guests.
For older or arthritic guests, we provide steps to the bed, alternative low-level beds with extra padding and lower scratch posts for comfort and safety. Heat pads are also available for additional comfort.

The welfare and happiness of your cat is our number one priority. That’s why we only have 12 rooms. This allows us to offer the highest level of care for each of our guests. We obviously ensure their daily needs (food, water and clean litter) are met but we also have time to interact with our guests. We have time to brush, time to play, time to cuddle or time to just offer a lap to sit on.
All suites have a choice of resting areas and hidey-holes. We have tried to create as close to a home from home environment for your cat as possible to minimise their stress. They have a variety of toys, puzzle feeders, interactive toys and virtual pets to keep them stimulated and occupied. A multi-level, heavy-duty, extra-large cat tree features in each room. With all platforms made from sustainably sourced plywood and all upholstery easily removable for washing, these cat trees offer a great source of enjoyment for your cat.
We stock a wide range of popular wet and dry foods that are included in the price. Meals are served on fine platters with a combination of wet and dry food and a small taste of ‘something special’ in the middle. This might be a taste of tuna, white fish, prawns, or chicken and is included in the price. We prefer to feed cats what they’re used to at home to minimise any unnecessary stress that a change in routine may cause. It is also important to ensure they do not suffer from any upset tummies. Cats on breed specific, medical diets or raw fed are welcome to bring their own food.
Water bowls are refreshed at least once a day and more often if necessary. Drinking fountains are available on request.
We only use premium grade eco-friendly wood pellet litter. Cats have no problem adapting to a litter tray, even if they don’t use one at home. Toilets are checked and cleared throughout the day.
