  Customer Testimonials

A fabulous cattery! My cats love it here. Lots of attention, toys and large and clean 'rooms'! I feel like Linda loves our cats as much as we do, which is so important when leaving your furry family member behind when you're off on a holiday of your own. The Facebook picture updates always make me relax, knowing that they are having a good time!

Sorry for the delayed review Linda! My babies had their first cattery experience in September with auntie Linda and they couldn’t have had a better experience. It’s clear that every cat boarded is loved & spoilt and because of that, I had peace of mind that my babies were safe & happy. I also loved the little touches of sending me update videos - much appreciated and I’m sure they’ll have a lovely Christmas & New Year when they come to visit again. Thank you so much for providing this excellent service in Calne x                                                                                                          - Lois Caplin

Milo and squidget had a fantastic time staying at Packwood it was their first time away from home and they were totally spoilt, lovely safe heated rooms with plenty to keep Squidget (6months) entertained. They were so relaxed and happy to be around Linda it was lovely to see. Highly recommended.                                                                                                                                               - Helen Leese

Thank you for taking care of Coby whilst we were away. It was his first time in a cattery and we felt very confident leaving him in such a lovely place and he came back happy and calm

                                                                                                                                -  Laura Maddox


Winston had a great time with Auntie Linda, first class service and very professional. Thank you                                                                                                                                               - Linda Lewis

My 16 year old cat Megan had never been to a cattery before. She has been so well cared for by Linda at her cat hotel, which is spotless and so well run. I wouldnt take my cat anywhere else. Thank you very much Linda.                                                                                             - Rusty Wride

Couldn't be happier with the wonderful cattery service Linda provides! We were a bit nervous for Milo and Rory's first cattery stay, but all worries soon disappeared. The accommodation is perfect, great space and know the boys have been so very well looked after. They have come home happy and bouncy after a great week. Already booked in for their next stay in November. Thank you very much Linda, will definitely recommend to everyone.   -                                                                  Emma Pryce

My little kitten Elsie stayed with Linda in August. First time we had left her. She settled in quickly and we loved the updates from Linda. She loved her stay! The cattery is well run, professional, clean, and safe. Would highly recommend and I will definately use again!

                                                                                                                                - Pam Walsh 

Treacle and Socks went for their first visit last week and came back very content. I had been unhappy with another cattery and with Linda being just down the road from where we live was delighted with this being on our doorstep. The cattery is spacious, clean and even better the cats are fussed over by Linda. Linda obviously has a complete passion for her guests which puts you at complete ease that your pets are totally cared for when you are away.

Holidays away from home are transformed - instead of worrying about our furry family, we can just get on with relaxing. Linda is always calm, reassuring and without a doubt gives our beloved cats the best care. This is our third time and it feels like dropping off with (very experienced!) family. As always, our grateful thanks to "Auntie" Linda!                                                                                 - Sheila Swale 
Well . Where shall I start. First time Gizmo and Greta stayed away from home and I was a bit apprehensive of who and where to leave them as I am new to having cats. Linda or Aunty Linda as now known was exceptional in settling them and me! The name cattery does not do it justice. It's a 5 star hotel for cats. They were spoilt, but in a good way and even had pressies and a treat for their first birthday. Linda welcomed my initial visit to look around and straight away I knew it was the right place for them and booked them in for 3 holidays. Since they come home they are different but again in a good way. Thank you so much Linda for looking after them so well and providing pictures. Gizmo and Greta will he seeing you soon.

Packwood saved us when the cattery we previously had booked double booked us and told us with only three weeks notice before our Christmas holiday. Linda was nothing but lovely and attentive, calling me pretty much immediately after my panic stricken email asking for vacancies. Our furry baby had never been away from home before so we were very nervous about the whole thing but Linda went out of her way to message us with updates of our bub, even though it was Christmas day! I couldn't recommend Packwood house enough. The facilities are warm and comforting for the cats but run in a military fashion so you have the comfort of knowing that your pets are safe but also very happy � Linda is obviously an animal person and goes above and beyond to ensure that you and your cat are well looked after. When we collected bub, Linda had hand made him a Christmas stocking stuffed with lovely little toys and treats (whatever cat nip you use, bub can not get enough of it!) It really doesn't get any sweeter than that. Thank you again for everything you did for us and continue to do for others, I only wish you were closer to us!

This is a unique cattery, we are SO lucky to have it on our doorstep. The enclosures are spotless, great care is taken to avoid cross infection. The cats' environment is carefully thought out and it provides privacy, challenge and comfort. However what really makes it stand out from the rest is Linda, the proprietor. She spends an extraordinary amount of time with the cats in her care; she plays with them, talks to them and even records their antics to be viewed on Facebook! It is so reassuring to log on and see your cat settled and happy.
I, too, would recommend this cattery to anyone, it's the best I've experienced in over 40 years of ownership.                                                                                                             - Irene Tomkinson

Our special furry boy Paco who is an indoor cat stayed at Packwood cattery last week. It was his first time in a cattery so we were worried if he would settle down. He was so well cared for by Linda we won't hesitate to book him in for another stay. Thank you Linda you have an exceptional cattery                                                                                                                                               - Vicki Smith

Lola settled in straight away having already visited the garden as a near neighbour. She didn't look like she wanted to come home when I went to pick her up and loved her leaving gift. Cattery is spotless and she had a beautiful heated bedroom.                                                                -  Diana Gill

Thank you so much for taking Boe this past week. She's happy to be home but I know she's been in good hands and settled in well with you. Definitely recommend and Boe will see you again soon.                                                                                                                                     - Penny Trotman

Thank you so much for being so accommodating with coco, we were very last minute and you were great at fitting us in.
Coco had a great time and it was so lovely to know as she's a very shy and jumpy cat.
Thank you so much again                                                                                    - Claire Blackwood  

We were very cautious about entrusting our boy Odin with anyone .. our kids are all grown up so Odin is our fur baby and,because of his breed, is kept indoors. We need not of worried, Auntie Linda welcomed him in and kept us informed as he settled in :) he loved the place and we'll have no hesitation on letting Linda look after him again .. already booked the next visit .. A 5 star operation with a loving and professional person running it.. thank-you Linda

Molly hadn't been to a cattery in ten years, but as she's getting on a bit now it doesn't seem fair leaving her with our neighbours. So on recommendation, I looked at Packwood House Cattery and was really impressed. I was a little apprehensive about leaving her but I needn't have been worried at all. The units are amazing, definitely 5 star and Molly loved the heat pads, I don't think she moved too far from that during her stay. I have no hesitation in booking Molly in for her holidays again, in fact we've already booked her in for Christmas and again in February. Thank you so much for looking after our little furry baby :-)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  - Clare Cashen

I was really worried about leaving my precious Poppy & Charlie Boy for their first cattery stay but you cannot call this a cattery. It should be advertised as a 5* cat hotel. Linda was extremely kind and fussed over my fur babies as though they were her own. Linda also sent me daily updates of them relaxing which put my mind at rest. She was also extremely helpful in finding space for them when I had to go into hospital for a serious operation. I cannot recommend the cattery highly enough. Definitely 5*

I can without doubt say that this is THE best cat hotel (it is too good to be just a cattery) I have ever booked my furry gang into. Auntie Linda spends a lot of time and attention with all of her furry guests and I know mine are always reluctant to leave!! Thank you Linda, from me and the furry gang!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             - Jane Delbridge

Linda's cattery and service are second to none and we are lucky to have such an outstanding establishment on our doorstep. She bravely took on our playful and boisterous young cat for his first stay and they quickly became the best of friends. When he developed a minor health issue, Linda was immediately aware of it and took action, thoughtfully keeping us informed at all stages. We could not have wished for more care and reassurance. Kasper is now fully recovered, Linda, and adds his thanks to ours!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            - Isobel Moore

I cannot say enough positives about Packwood House - both of our cats were always very stressed when they returned from other catteries - not so this time - I cannot praise Linda enough, she obviously has an affinity with her guests and they with her.                              -                                                                                                                                                                                               - Carol Nicolls          

This was the first time Garfield had stayed in a cattery.He is such a mummy's boy!I was worried if he would settle,i need not have fretted he purred and purred for Linda and was calm and chilled out.His fur is lovely and silky so I'm sure he enjoyed his pampering and grooming.He loves his toy mouse Thankyou Linda for all your care,we will be back.X                                                                                                                                                                                                                           - Lynda Rumming

My precious baby "Mia" want to stay with Linda for six days. It was her first time away from me and from home. Linda took all my worries on board and cared for Mia beautifully, even sitting with her while she ate on the first evening.
I was messaged to let me know Mia was settling in and some beautiful photos were put on FB so that I could see she was happy.
She has come home very calm and laid back and has obviously not fretted at all whilst she has stayed with Linda. A very happy puss cat :)
And that makes a very happy me! Thank you Linda X                                               - Lisa Tibble


At Christmas we were happy and impressed with how Linda looked after Winnie and Biscuit during their first stay at Packwood, but now after their summer holiday at Packwood we have to say - Linda doesn't run a cat hotel, she runs a cat spa! Our nervous gentle giant, Biscuit, has come home more relaxed and confident than we've ever seen him. And Winnie, our ancient lady, was royally treated and so well looked (heated blanket, hand-fed, special cat bed) that we feel indebted to Linda for her insight and kindness.                                                                                                                                                                               - Sheila and Jeremy Swale

Fluffy didn't move from her new favourite spot when I went to collect her at the end of her mini break. I believe this is homage to how happy she must of been in this cat hotel :-) Thanks for taking good care of her                                                                                                             -                                                                                                                                                                                           - Donna Noonan

Absolutely brilliant place. After leaving my much loved cat in a cattery last year for the first time and having him coming home absolutely traumatised, I was really wary of leaving him again. Packwood House was recommended to me, and after leaving Scratchy there for a week while we were in Spain, I would not hesitate to send him there again. Linda is lovely, the place is spotless, and puss has come home happy and calm.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             - Lucy Sidelnik

We had huge reservations about using a Cattery and have never done so before. However, Bonnie has just spent her first week at Packwood Cat hotel and we cannot thank Linda enough for the love and care she has given Bonnie. Linda went above and beyond and has real passion for what she does. I would have no hesitation to recommend her Cat Hotel. We have already reserved another weeks stay for Bonnie.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          - Angela Protheroe

Collected our cat Dusty from Packwood House Cattery yesterday afternoon after a long weekend stay. Very pleased with the care & service he received here. Dusty is only 8 months so still a kitten and was nervous leaving him even for a short time. Linda was lovely, the cattery lovely, clean & welcoming. Booked another stay for June & will be using time & time again after. Thank you                                                                                         -                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            -     Laura Jones

This was Lulubell's second stay at Packwood House and she was again very happy to spend her holiday with the other purring furry residents. Her bedroom and sitting room were spacious and clean, so what's not to like? Thank you so much Linda for looking after Lulubell again!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          -  Chris & Maria Wilkes-Ciudad

Our young cat Honey has just spent her first time away from home. Honey has enjoyed two weeks of cat spa facilities and has returned home in a calm, peaceful and purry way. Honey has NEVER purred before and is now purring contentedly on my daughter's lap. Thank you so much Linda for the love, care and attention you gave our beautiful girl. Packwood House Cattery is the best cattery I've used in 30 years and is so nice that I'd've happily traded holidays with my cat!!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            - Yvette Hicks

We were very nervous about leaving our 5 cats when we went on holiday, partly because it was for 3 weeks and partly because they had never all been in a cattery together (and 2 of them were complete cattery newbies). Linda was hugely reassuring for us before we left and clearly took amazing care of them when we were away, paying attention to their individual personalities and needs and setting up their environment to work round those personalities. Being able to see photos and videos of them on Facebook while we were away was also marvellous.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Packwood House, or in sending my furry family there again any time.                                                                                            - Claire D'Arcy


Monty & Ludo were thoroughly spoilt by Linda at Packwood House. It was their first stay in a cattery & they seemed to enjoy their holiday as much as we did! Will definitely book in again. Thanks Linda

I picked up my babies today from Packwood House Cattery, where they have spent the last 7 days being looked after by Linda. It was their first time in a cattery and they have both come home so relaxed and happy. I would definitely recommend using this service!         

                                                                                                                           - Kate Thomas

After many years of taking our cats with us on holiday, this was the first time we put them in a cattery and we wanted to make sure they were in the best place - a home from home.

I called on the way to airport (worried about my elderly cat who loves hot places, my food-hypersensitive tabby who has difficulty eating and my timid ginger tom who's afraid of most things). Linda was amazing, she had already rearranged things in the pens so that they were all comfortably sorted out and already eating well. Whilst we were abroad, Linda was very quick at replying to my emails and posted photos/videos online, so I felt reassured that my furry children were being well looked after.

I wholeheartedly recommend Linda as the best cat hotel! Thank you, Linda - Winnie, Mellie and Biscuit will be back for their summer holiday with you!

Thank you Linda for looking after Sapphi and Star so well. Their first visit to a cattery and they came back very chilled. Despite them moving into a new house yesterday they were very good and although there was lots of strange places and smells seem to be ok. Thank you                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            - Paula Brunt

Fantastic cattery, have picked Millie and Mollie from there weeks holiday with you this morning. They looked well at home when I saw them. It was great to see the posts on Facebook to see they had settled. They have enjoyed their treat they came home with. Thank you Linda.                                                                                                     - Claire Piggott

Macey home after her first stay......she must have been very relaxed as no stress sores on her neck. Thank you Linda for taking great care of her...... She's back with you soon so we'll see you then.                                                                                                                                  -                                                                                                                                                 - Kathy Smorthit

Ticky really enjoyed his stay in this hotel... He came home relaxed and looked very well cared for as we knew he would be. This was his first time away from home, we thought we'd better try him out in a hotel for a few nights before we have to leave him for a few weeks in October. Linda is so good with her guests, very attentive, treating each one like her own. A massive thank you from Ticky and mum n dad!                                                                                                                                                                                                                      - Neil Setterfield

Thank you Linda for looking after Flynn, Lily and Ziggy, so very well. They had a great time on their holiday with you. They have been thoroughly spoilt. They are looking forward to their next holiday with you in June. Xxx                                                                                                        -Michele Ward

Our three babies spent all last week in Packwood House. They came home very relaxed and happy. Linda took really good care of them and sent us photos of them whilst we were away. The cattery is a really lovely 5* hotel for the furry ones and we highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a safe, comfortable and very caring place to leave their cats. Thanks again Linda.                                                                                                                                                                                - Chris Barton

We just want to thank Linda for looking after Lulubell for the first time while we were on holiday. It was so great to know Lulu was going to be on holiday herself in such super 'hotel' in the company of lovely Linda and fellow felines :) Thank you!! :)                                                           - Chris Wilkes-Ciudad

First experience of Packwood was excellent. Lovely clean cattery with friendly, kind owner who has clearly looked after our Frodo. Hes come back happy, well groomed and relaxed. Big thank you :)                                                                                                                                                      - Alison Plumb

Patch had a great time at Packwood - he come totally chilled and very happy. His coat is shining and he is very content! Would definitely recommend Packwood and wouldn't hesitate in leaving Patch again. One happy cat and owner! Congratulations on what you have achieved x                                                                                                                                                                          - Denise Jackman

What a wonderful Cattery, they really take care of your fur baby. Gizmo did not want to go in his box and wanted to stay. Thank you for his gift bag, what a lovely touch. This was Gizmos first visit and it will certainly be his preferred holiday home.                                                                   - Kaz Bissell

Marbles and crackers have returned home very relaxed , they obviously enjoyed their stay with you and the fuss and attention they received ( and no doubt the treats !) I've never known them return from a cattery so happy - thank you , it's great to know they were well looked after - will definitely be sending them both to you from now on                                                                          - Jo Needham

Poppy has come home very happy & well looked after, think she enjoyed herself as much as we did on our holiday!
I will definitely be booking her in again as did not need to worry about her as knew she was being well cared for & spoilt
Also so lovely to have a great cattery on the door step.
Would definitely recommend Packwood House Cattery if you want somewhere you can leave your cat & have a relaxing holiday knowing your fur baby is in safe hands                                  - Kate Chanin

I was very pleased with the standard of Hygiene and Care, I'm sure Pip my Cat loved it at Packwood and he has been booked in again for a week in October wouldn't want him to go any where else.                                                                                                                                                      - Pat Warner

What a lovely place to go for a holiday. We enjoyed it so much that we didn't want to get into our boxes to go home. The hotel owner was very kind and provided every convenience and made quite a fuss of us. We had to put up with her singing from time to time but it was a lot better than our dad playing his trumpet at home. The food was great - mum says you get the best food in Italy but she's wrong. Tuna Tuesday and fishy Friday were brilliant. It was nice to see the wild life as well - the birds and butterflies flying by were so inviting. Shame that we couldn't reach them, but never mind. We even came home with a goody bag. We hope that mum and dad send us to that hotel again    Lucca and Tosca x

Xxx from Max.  A great cattery the best.                                                                                                                                                        -    Christine Bull Pottow

This has to be the best cattery ever! Our cat is 13 and has stayed in a few others over the years. Linda takes extra special care of her guests and gives loads of extra special touches like spending time to cuddle them, and it was lovely to see photos of our cat on Facebook while we were away. Love the goody bag to take home and so did Pepper! Would not leave her anywhere else now                                                                                                                                                                -  Shirley Bennett

This is by far the best cattery I have used. George had to think twice about coming home! The service is great, the units are clean and you even get a cat goody bag. Already booked up for July.                                                                                                                                                     - Kate McLaughlin

Becks was nervous but the care given soon settled her down. Thank you Linda for looking after her so well. Becks will definitely be back at Packwood House Cattery x

Our two cats Sweetbriar and Pebbles have just come back from a short stay and they are two very happy cats. Packwood house is lovely, so clean and and calm and they obviously have had plenty of attention. They are booked in for their next visit in a couple of months for a longer stay. It's great!!                                                                                                                                          - Barbara Perrett

"Bruno had never been away from home, but he was so well looked after I feel happy to go away again. He was so spoiled and his coat is very glossy - a sure sign of a very happy Bruno! The place is immaculate and the care is first class. Lots of love and affection as well as fab food. Can't fault it".                                                                                                                                             - Susie Skinner

I went for a tour of this cattery today. It is really lovely and in beautiful surroundings too. Our three cats are going to be boarding there in September. Thanks again Linda for all your help.

Lola had a lovely time at Packwood House Cattery. Linda is brilliant with the pets in her care and the attention to detail is fantastic. The facilities are brilliant and Lola will definitely be back to stay again next time we go away. Thanks again Linda                                                                  - Trudy King

Our three cats had a great time and came back relaxed - they obviously hadn't missed us at all!
