Meet The Family

Sarah lives on Barry Island with her two grown up sons, Joe and Harry. Joe takes care of people with learning disabilities, and Harry is studying IT at Bristol University.

Sarah says, ”We are a family of animal lovers and have never been without our cats hedgehogs and two hamsters. Joe and I are dedicated vegans, but Harry refuses to give up cheese!

Barry Island, is a seaside resort and part of the town of Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan. Barry Island is known for its beaches and pleasure park, and is also very well known for being the home of the BBC TV ‘Gavin and Stacey’. Our home overlooks the beautiful Jackson’s Bay.

We are conveniently located a 10 minute drive away from Cardiff International Airport and a just a five minute stroll from Barry Island train station.

Before Longcroft I enjoyed several years of being a foster carer and ran an Ice Cream kiosk on Barry Island itself which our family still run to this day! I am also a qualified Yoga instructor and nurse.

I was inspired to open my own Longcroft hotel after watching the Channel 4 show ‘Compare Your Life' back in 2013 in which Longcroft was featured and loved the concept Abi has created, so much so I contacted Longcroft the very next day. I felt there was a definite place for Longcroft in Barry Island! My Longcroft hotel has been a long time coming but good things always come to those who wait ..!

Knowing the anxiety that can come from leaving a beloved pet was the reason I am doing this. I can’t wait to offer my undivided attention just like our guests are one of the family. I am looking forward to meeting you and showing you around my beautiful hotel."

  • Helen made sure that Denzel felt secure and happy

    Denzel is a rescue cat and I didn't want to put him in a cattery whilst we moved house, as he would think that he had been abandoned again. Longcroft was the right choice for him. From the beautiful cat bed to the amazing scratch post/hammock/plaything the venue is perfect for pampered pets. In addition to the 'room' the thing (well, person really!) that made Denzel feel welcome was the lovely Helen. When we arrived Denzel had got a little upset and Helen made sure that he felt secure and happy before we left him to his little holiday. To reassure us even further, we received emails from Denzel telling us what he had been up to and how he had enjoyed the A La Cat menu that we had arranged for him. Denzel and I would highly recommend Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel Fontwell as somewhere ideal for your cat to stay.

  • What a great find!

    What a great find! Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely Helen who showed Belle to her suite, which was immaculate and had everything a cat could wish for. I knew that Belle would be in safe hands but I was slightly worried that she would be reluctant to leave! During Belles stay we received an email update to let us know she had settled well which was reassuring. Helen has since sent me a few photos of her stay. I would highly recommend this cat hotel. Thank you!

  • Helen has permanent custom from us and our babies for life!

    We have 3 month old Ragdoll kittens Mitsy and Crunch and after visiting Helen at Longcroft to have a look around I simply knew they had to come here whilst we went on holiday! We drove over an hour and a half to Helens and it was worth every second. Not only did she look after them extraordinarily well but kept me informed all week on how they were doing with emails and pictures! They came home like they had never been away! Helens warming nature immediately put us at ease and she has permanent custom from us and our babies for life! Would thoroughly recommend you visit to see for yourself. Big big thanks to Helen!

  • Outstanding. Highly Recommend!

    'The care and service provided was outstanding - Aly really does a good job. The suites are spacious. light and airy and there are plenty of things to keep the cats entertained. Proof was that we struggled to get ours out of the suite when we came to pick her up! Would highly recommend.'

  • our kitten Betsie had a fabulous stay

    Our kitten Betsie had a fabulous stay in the Snowdrop Suite. We felt very relaxed leaving her in such capable and caring hands. The setting is gorgeous and the suites are all clean, safe and warm...we weren't sure if Betsie actually wanted to come home again! She will certainly be back for another holiday. Thank you Helen for taking such good care and for your excellent service.

  • It's the best holiday they have ever had

    Having viewed at least 10 places locally and feeling very disheartened by the lack of connection with the proprietors , their lack of real passion in cats and also seeing that the cat suites where nothing more than just a basic wooden shelter with little security I was about to give up. Then I saw an advert for Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel, I immediately went the website and I knew there and then that I had found my cats the perfect safe place. Having put my 16yr old in a cattery before he had destroyed his room, pulled the cat flap away from the internal wall, so I was really worried. But to my surprise he quickly took to Abi and his new holiday home, within a few minutes he was eating and quiet contended. The 2 girls both seemed a little more cautious but after a while settled in happily. Abi knew it was my first time leaving them in a new place and that my eldest was on tablets and my youngest was very nervous and hated being away from me for long periods, but I knew they were safe and Abi would look after them. It was the first time I have left them and not looked back wondering if they are OK, are they happy? Which actually made my vacation more enjoyable. When I returned to collect them I was a little sad that they did not rush to meet me, instead they were lying on their beds chilling in no rush to move. I have already booked their next Holiday for 2015. If they could actually speak to me they would say ‘it’s the best holiday they have ever had and could I go away more often’.
