Welcome to the Secret Garden Cattery. We are based in Larkhill, 

about 20 miles from the medieval city of Salisbury. We are perfectly positioned just off the A303, so if you're looking to board your cat... then look no further.


We will be keeping the Cattery open during the Coronavirus pandemic, unless we are otherwise instructed by the authorities. This is primarily so that people who may have to travel to attend to sick relatives will have somewhere to safely leave their pet. We will have special booking in arrangements for this purpose to keep contact to a minimum. If you require more information please don’t hesitate to email us via the website.

Sitting on the Northern Boundary of the Stonehenge World Heritage Site is the Secret Garden Cattery. Why secret?  Well a visit will give you the answer, we are very well hidden.


We have lived and worked in Larkhill for over 30 years, and have always run a business alongside our Post Office, but in 2009 we decided to change our style of business.  Animals have always been a part of our lives, and we had an opportunity to make animals a part of our working life. So why a cattery?  Well it fitted in with our property and surroundings, plus the fact that boarding cats is not well catered for in South Wiltshire, so the plan was launched to build our very own Cattery. We have invested in the highest quality chalets, made by Britain's leading UPVC Cattery manufacturer  Pedigree Pens They are double glazed, centrally heated, well lit, spacious, and set in a wonderful garden which is always full of birds and butterflies, oh and our resident flock of chickens. So there is plenty of visual stimulation for our guests to view as they survey their surroundings and enjoy the Wiltshire sunshine.  Mark will be personally running the cattery and is very experienced in handling all types of animals. 


Our philosophy is to be as flexible as we can be, we understand that your holiday is precious to you, and your cats’ stay with us will be a holiday for them as well, so go off and enjoy yourself, your cat will be spoilt rotten.


Did I mention the Pet Store? Acting as the frontage to the Cattery we have our very own Pet Store! Click here to take a look at our Pet Store's website


We look forward to welcoming you and your cat to the Secret Garden .... hope to see you soon!


Mark & Erika
