Luxury Cattery & Boarding Kennels Castleford & Leeds, West Yorkshire

About Us

Cattery LeedsHi, my name is Becky and this is how i came to open up a cattery. I spent the majority of my childhood in the village of Ackworth, brought up surrounded by animals, dogs, rabbits, ferrets and pigs to name a few.

For twenty five years our family business was in the fish and chip industry, although a different way of life was preferred.

In the year 1996 my parents managed to purchase their dream smallholding that eluded my Fathers parents before him, in a lovely quiet little place called Womersley. With 15 acres of land and surrounded by the beautiful Clipsall Woods it was idyllic.

A new venture was now our aim. Having always been involved with animals, my Father went into one of his past hobbies of greyhound racing as a professional trainer which myself and my husband also got involved in. However as with many sports, the greyhound scene is in decline and a decision was made to build a new complex and go into boarding kennels. The new kennels were officially opened in September 2008, and from that time have grown into one of the most respected kennels in the country.

During our first few years it became apparent that many people as well as owning a dog also had other animals. These customers then had the headache of running about elsewhere to house these other pets. We then decided to build another complex to house all pets, so that customers could have one drop off and go away on their holiday and relax.

Now we have a luxury cattery where the cats are warm and comfy at night and through the day can sit in their own window seat and watch the daily goings on in the woods.

Clipsall Wood Boarding Kennels has been very successful due to the passion and experience we have when caring for animals. We want to make sure that when you go away on holiday and leave your loved ones with us, they are on holiday too.

We guarantee that your pets will be cared for to the highest possible standards. Dogs are walked individually morning and evening and the regulars have become almost like our own pets. We understand that each animals needs are different and we make sure they feel at home when in our care.
