PLAY & EXPLORE
Every feline guest or family takes turns to access our outdoor Explore and Play area during the day. This consists of a large garden area adjacent to the Kitty Kitchen and a climbing tree in front of the standard suites. These are linked by pathways and can be separated from one other or left open for free roaming as needed.
All areas are completely secure and enclosed, accessible only to keyholding staff. Artificial grass keeps our gardens clean even after heavy rain and cats love the hardwearing texture for scratching.
The pathways allow the cats to investigate, say hello to their neighbors in a non-threatening way, and engage their natural instincts to explore.
The climbing tree was designed in 2020 as an interactive play and exercise area. Built with stimulating a cat’s natural instincts in mind, it allows for climbing, scratching, lying in the sun and jumping between platforms.
The garden beside the Kitty Kitchen is large enough for running, pouncing and climbing games and is always well-stocked with toys. Cats can look out over the drive and keep an eye on comings and goings.
If a cat is coming for their first stay or is very anxious, they will be allowed to settle into their suite or cabin first before being introduced to the outdoor areas so as not to overwhelm them.
