Nutley Farm Cattery was built to offer cats a more stimulating, clean, and spacious environment for the ultimate comfortable and luxury experience. Its bespoke design makes it a truly unique cattery with your cat’s needs at the centre of our ethos. Nutley Farm has built up an enviable reputation as one of the area’s premier pet boarding facilities, awarded 5 Stars by Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council. We have also been voted “Best Upscale Pet Boarding Accommodation in Kent” in the Lux Life Magazine Pet Products and Services Awards 2020.

Situated on a quiet lane in the beautiful village of Wateringbury, it offers a very peaceful, yet exciting setting within acres of beautiful private gardens adjacent to chestnut woods and ancient forest for all cats to enjoy on their holiday. Local wildlife are happy to entertain the cattery guests day and night. This provides hours of mental stimulation – absolutely essential for cats away from their usual routine at home. Our guests can look forward to seeing a plethora of birdlife, including the occasional pheasant, butterflies, bees, squirrels and rabbits from our very own warren during the day, and an evening show of rodent life and owls.

The cattery is set in lovely countryside, yet is easily accessible to major road links (only a few minutes away from the A26 and the A20/M20) and located approximately half way between towns of Maidstone, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks, very close to Kings Hill and many other towns and villages, including Wateringbury, West and East Malling, Barming, Mereworth, West and East Farleigh, West and East Peckham, Paddock Wood, Hadlow, Coxheath, Larkfield, Leybourne, Aylesford, Snodland  – just to name a few. We are also easily accessible from Chatham and Medway, South East London and North Kent via the A20 and M20.

Nutley Farm Cattery is a family run business, offering feline guests unlimited cuddles and individual attention from the family and the cattery staff. Owned by Stephan and Karen Kalthof, we are fully licenced by Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) Regulations 2018 (Licence Number TM/ANIMAL/006).

All our cats are fed on well known and trusted brands of premium wet and dry food from the following selection, we stock foods for a variety of nutritional needs:

Dry Foods : Royal Canin (Regular Fit and Kitten), Wellbeloved Turkey, Purina One Chicken or Fish, Iams, Whiskas and Go Cat Crunchy and Tender.

Wet food (pouches only): Felix (kitten, regular and As Good As It Looks), Whiskas (kitten and regular), Sheba fine flakes in jelly and Gourmet Perle.

However should you wish your cat to have a specific food or they have a veterinary prescribed diet you are welcome to bring this in and we will make sure they receive their regular food at meal times.

It is always advisable to view the cattery prior to any boarding arrangements being made, but please note we are extremely security conscious so all visits are strictly by appointment only. To book your cattery viewing, please telephone 01622 812832, or for any other queries please do not hesitate to contact us via the online Contact Form or e-mail .


We are open for business as usual, although our check in and checkout procedures have changed to ensure we are able to maintain social distancing guidelines. For your safety we will no longer be using the office for check in, and we can no longer allow you to accompany us into the chalets, but you are welcome to stand at a safe distance outside while we settle your cats in. We also have an appointment system within our opening times so that we can avoid queues and minimise social contact. All new bookings are subject to a non-refundable 25% deposit, so please don’t make that booking until you are sure of your dates. 

We are looking forward to seeing you and your feline families again soon!
