Meet The Family

"Longcroft Letchworth is situated at our home in Letchworth, North Hertfordshire the first Garden City in the UK. We are fortunate to live in a very quiet residential area surrounded by beautiful trees and are conveniently located 0.5 miles from the train station and 1.4 miles from the A1 in close proximity to Hitchin, Baldock and Stevenage."

Vicky lives with her husband Neil and their two young daughters. The whole family adore animals, gardening and taking walks in the countryside. They have several lovely rescue chickens alongside Trixie, a beautiful black and white rescue kitty who loves nothing more but to explore the woodland backing onto their garden. The family also enjoy taking care of the many fish that live in their large garden pond.


Vicky previously worked as a Business Support Manager in the global electronics industry and has given up that life to run her very own Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel. Vicky was inspired by her own experience of struggling to find home from home care for her own beloved cats. She researched setting up her own cattery then spoke to a friend who’s lovely Bengal Sacha had recently stayed at a Longcroft hotel, the rest is history!

"I can’t wait to take care of your lovely cats and get to know them .. am I allowed to say that I love cats just a little bit more than humans….!"

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 cat Biscuit had such a fantastic stay at Longcroft Letchworth - owner Vicky is wonderful and gave him such a high level of care and attention. Her regular updates also helped us enjoy our own holiday more by knowing our special boy was so happy. Could not recommend any more strongly - thank you Vicky.

Cannot recommend Longcroft Letchworth & owner Vicky highly enough. From start to finish everything about the whole experience was simple and painless. Our cat Lolly absolutely loved her stay (seemed to have a better holiday than we did!). Communication with Vicky was superb and she kept us updated as often as we wanted. Already booked in for her second holiday in August - thank you Vicky!!

Our 5 month old kitten stayed with Vicky at Longcroft for 5 days over Easter. Being young he loves to play and loves human company. Vicky was brilliant with him and gave him all the attention he needed. We got daily updates on what mischief he was getting up to which put our minds at rest too and he had a great time. We will definitely be using regularly when we're away. I couldn't recommend more (but please don't book for when we're planning to go away because we found this place first!).

This hotel is incredible! Vicky goes above and beyond to ensure the cat (and owner) feel relaxed and happy. She provides lovely updates about your cat's activities and cute photos. My cat wouldn't go anywhere else!! Faultless service from start to finish. I couldn't recommend highly enough!

My cat Teddy, absolutely adored her stay with Vicky last week. She is 16 years old and loves nothing more than sitting on her very own deluxe cat tower pretending she is not interested in the other guests and lapping up any attention she may get.It is a beautiful place and the cats are thoroughly spoilt and given heaps of loving care and I would not hesitate to book her in again and again!

I would highly recommend Longcroft Letchworth. Vicky made the whole experience from beginning to end a very personable and pleasurable one. Our 1yr old cat Pumpkin who had never stayed away from home before was treated like royalty. Will definitely be bringing Pumpkin back.

Absolutely 5 star service. I wouldn't send my old cat anywhere else. Vicky was so attentive to the cats needs. The suites are spotless and the guests really are utterly spoilt. I don't think my cat wanted to leave. You can't even compare this place to a cattery - it's a spa for cats with an owner who truly adores them. Don't bother looking anywhere else other than Longcroft!

Thank you so much Vicky for looking after Podge and Phoebe. Its was their first stay away and we were very nervous. Vicky made them and us feel at ease and with the regular updates we did not need to worry at all. Thank you so much Vicky, we will not hesitate to use your services again.

First time for my cat being away from home, and it was AMAZING. Vicky is lovely and her love for cats shines through. Got a friendly update and photo across my cats stay which put me at ease that he was a happy cat. Highly recommend!
