The perfect holiday for your furry friend

Our fully licensed and insured cat hotel and country club is situated in a peaceful location close to the M5 and Bristol Airport so you can drop your cat off on the way to catch your plane. There's no better place for your cat to holiday with our heated rooms and guaranteed peace and quiet.

We welcome cats of all ages so whether you have a young energetic cat that needs plenty of attention, or an elderly puss that prefers peace and quiet; bring them to Mariners Light Cattery. As cat lovers ourselves, we treat every guest as though they are our own and ensure they get all the love and attention they need.

A home from home for your cat

Whether you have one cat or a family of cats, we have the space. We will provide all the bedding, blankets, scratch posts and toys your cat needs but if you prefer to bring their own along, please do so.

We cater for all diets and will feed your cat what they eat at home and if your cat has a food that is prescribed by the vet, please bring this along with them. We are also able to administer medication and diabetic injections during their stay with us, and we have pens specially adapted for cats with disabilities. In the unlikely event of an emergency, we have a vet on call 24 hours a day.

Single or family rooms available.

Only fully vaccinated cats can be accepted. All cats while in our care are covered by insurance, against emergency veterinary treatments. However this does not cover any pre-existing conditions. So, if any cats need emergency veterinary treatment, for pre-existing conditions owners will be responsible for any veterinary bills incurred to be settled with the vet direct. All medical conditions must be declared upon or before admission.

About me

Many years ago, I used to work for Deutsche Bank in the Square Mile, in the City of London, in their Human Resources Department.  Born and bred in London, my family are all from North London.

I lived in the East End of London, Wapping,  for 15 years, and my love of cats began, when one day, I was followed home from the tube by two cats… escorting me from the tube to my front door. One day it was raining, and they dashed in, and never left! After long days of working in the City, I often expressed a desire to work with animals, and the opportunity came when in the year 2000, Mariners Light Cattery came up for sale, and I decided to have a complete change of career and move from London down to Somerset, in the beautiful location of Sand Bay. I cannot thank Deutsche Bank enough, as though shocked, supported my decision to leave, and were wonderful employers throughout the many years I worked for them.


To me, this is not just a job, but something I enjoy doing too. I have rescue cats as well as looking after the ones that I board. Over the years, my customers have become good friends, more than just clients, which is an important part of my work here too. You are welcome to come and meet us, and view the facilities... usually met and greeted at the front door by my own cats!
