Meet The Family

Emma lives with her husband Mark, their two daughters and their two rescue cats, Charlie and Lola! Hanni and Alfie, their two beloved horses, complete the family. Charlie and Lola, two cheeky rescue cats, came to live with the family at Christmas 2012 after they sadly lost Emma’s cat Poppy at the age of 19. She was a rescued black and white cat who travelled everywhere with her, to university, home again and even on holidays occasionally!

Best thing about running a Hotel?

“I've always wanted to run my own business. Combine that with working with cats and still being at home and available for my young children, and you have the dream job!
Finding the right cattery for my own cats has always been important to me, and I know how difficult it is to find that perfect place. I am looking to offer a personal service to each and every guest and they will be treated as if they were one of the family!”

  • Emma put me at complete ease

    It was so hard to decide what to do with our precious British Shorthair Terry Cat when my husband and I had to travel earlier this year. We looked at lots of options and when I spoke to Emma at Winchmore Hill Longcroft Cat Hotel on the telephone, she put me at complete ease and the decission was made Terry would be staying at Longcroft. Terry stayed with Emma for approx 18 days and Emma sent us regular photos and health updates. Emma was even accommodating when we changed our flights and collected Terry few days earlier than planned. Terry was well groomed and seemed very happy when we collected him. We have now booked Terry in for Christmas Break.

  • Calm, organised and reassuring

    Our cat Hannah hadn't stayed away from home before, and we were in some turmoil because of building works. Emma was superb - calm, organised and reassuring. Hannah stayed with her twice, and was very happy in her wonderful suite. The photos were great as well. The whole experience was a great relief and about the only aspect of our project which was delivered on time and was better than expectations! I would like to give Longcroft Winchmore Hill the highest recommendation possible.

  • Amazing service and dedication

    Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel provides a really great service and our cat Tara was really well when she stayed there, as we could see from the photos. Tara has already stayed in two different Longcrofts and the service and dedication is always amazing. We advise this hotel to our friends since we know our cat will be in good hands.

  • Emma was brilliant!

    Freddie, our 4 year old stayed with Emma for 9 days in May. We homed Freddie from the blue cross 6 months ago so weren't really too sure how he would react. The facilities at Longcroft are excellent and Freddie was already getting quite settled when we left him. Emma kept in regular contact with us via email and told us of a slight issue with Freddie settling in. Emma was brilliant, very patient and tried a number of things to try and find out what the problem was with Freddie. It wasn't long until we discovered he's super fussy about the type of litter he uses... Once Emma changed the litter to wood pellets all the issues disappeared. When we went to collect him, he was so settled and didn't really want to leave! I can't thank Emma enough for being so patient with our little man and for taking such great care of him. Longcroft is the only place Freddie will visit when we go on holiday as it's so reassuring to know that the 4 legged friend you love so much is getting great care. Freddie is looking forward to seeing Emma again in November and for 3 weeks this time!

  • The care and attention Emma gives is first class

    I was very happy indeed with the excellent facilities at Longcroft and the care that Basil received on his recent stay with Emma in Winchmore Hill. He is an older cat and this was the first time he had been away for 7 years. I was concerned about him, but Emma gave me complete reassurance and confidence that he would receive all the love, care and attention that he normally gets at home. Whilst I was away I received a photo of him and several text messages that completely put my mind at ease. The facilities are exceptional, the care and attention Emma gives is first class and the choice and quality of food is just like home cooking. She truly loves her cats and I would have no concerns in booking Basil in again and also recommending Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel to my friends. Thank you so much Emma.

Our Google reviews

This is the best cattery we've ever used (our cats are 13 and 12) so we've toured and tested a number in our area.Our moggies (we don't use the word in their hearing) are SO well cared for and very obviously nurtured and cosseted by Emma. What's more, we were so reassured, being on the other side of the world, by the texts and photos Emma sent.During our most recent absence from them over Christmas and New Year, they were with Emma for six weeks and came back purring, replete with a lavish Christmas box of treats and gifts (including some fortifying chocolates for us ... at least I think they were for human consumption!)Can't recommend highly enough ... we certainly feel very confident about leaving our cats in Emma's care.

I don’t think I’ll be able to explain just how pleased I’ve been with the service that Emma has given to us and our two cats. Both our cats are just over a year old and are not used to people at all, very shy. We were going away for two weeks and wanted to know they would be in safe hands. We found Emma on line and this was over an hour away from where we live but we went to visit and immediately knew that Emma had the set up that our cats would be safe in and we could enjoy our holiday knowing they were safe and well. Their two weeks was great and they have come back and settled in with no issues as she tailors their stay to what they are used too. I will definitely be using Emma again as she has taken on our cats as her own with lots of love and hugs and updated us with their goings on whilst we were away. Five stars just isn’t enough well worth the money. Thank you.

I just want to thank Emma for Milo and Loki's wonderful stay at Longcroft. They stayed at Longcroft for 2 weeks and I'm sure they had an amazing time, as they looked very happy and healthy on their return. Emma gave us regular updates and send us loads of pics as well which made us so relaxed during our holiday. Our lovely kittens even came back with gifts form Emma, which they still enjoy playing with.I would highly recommend Longcroft Winchmore to anyone who wants to leave their precious cats in safe hands .Emma - I'll let you know when I book my next holiday, as I would like Milo and Loki to stay at Longcroft itself!

Emma looks after Chester as if he is one of her own cats. He loves going there and being pampered and enjoys playtime immensely. It is great that I can leave him with Emma whilst I go on holiday, knowing that he is having a better time than me! I would recommend Longcroft to anyone who wants their cat to be looked after.

We cannot thank Emma and her team enough for looking after our Siamese/Balinese kitten. Being an indoor cat and never leaving home before, we were a bit anxious about him being away - but we needn’t have worried. Nothing was too much trouble for Emma, and it sounds like she enjoyed cuddles with him as much as he enjoyed them with her!We would highly recommend Longcroft Winchmore Hill. Emma, thank you so much - you’re fabulous! x

I was a little worried leaving my little naughty tortie Missy, as this was only her second time away from home. I had nothing to worry about. I was given time to settle her in and she looked quite content when I left her. Emma sent me an update to let me know how Missy was getting on. It was reassuring to hear she was happy and to see photos. I picked up a happy and healthy Missy at the end of her stay and it was not long before she was back to her cheeky ways at home. Thanks Emma!

My two rescue cats have just spent their first ever week away with Emma at Longcroft, Winchmore Hill. Emma took such great care of them and kept us up to date with how they were settling in which really helped put us at ease that they were doing ok. They were very content when we arrived to pick them up and have settled back at home really quickly. They’ve clearly had plenty of loving care and attention on their little holiday, so we couldn’t ask for more!

Our cats were excellently cared for and happy and contented. Email updates of how they were while we were away reassured us. We would definitely use Longcroft again.

I can't thank Emma enough for looking after Midge. She was so relaxed with her, it was so lovely to see! She kept her as calm as possible and kept me updated throughout her stay. It meant that I could really relax on holiday and not worry! She's looking forward to her next holiday already!

It was our kittens first time away from us so we were very anxious leaving them. We needed not to have worried as Emma took wonderful care of Oscar and Cato. Cato is the shyer of the two and Emma took special care with him to make sure he settled in. We loved the fact that Emma kept us up to date throughout our holiday which meant we could enjoy it knowing the boys were settled and happy. Every detail is taken care of and it was so sweet that they had their own goody bag to bring home. Have already booked our next stay.

The moment we met Emma, and viewed her beautiful Longcroft Hotel in Winchmore Hill, we knew that our two pedigree 4-year old cats (who have never been away from home) were going to be exceptionally well looked after. When checking-in, Emma met us reassured both of our cats, who were extremely nervous and helped them settle in. Nothing was too much trouble and they were brilliantly cared for throughout their stay. A lovely touch was the little updates of their holiday experience! Overall brilliant service, brilliant support and I cannot recommend Emma any higher.P.s. They will look forward to coming back soon. Thank you again Emma!
