Meet The Family

Abi Purser, together with her husband Matt and three children, runs the Welwyn Hotel, which opened in 2010. Abi has worked with animals for over 15 years, and created the vision for the Longcroft brand and business when she struggled to find a premium cattery for her beloved rescue cat, Norman.

  • You have got it just right!

    We are so happy to have found Abi and her beautiful cat hotel. Our two cats stayed for the first time recently and seemed to settle in immediately. We were pleasantly surprised to hear from Abi while we were away informing us that they were quite happy and totally chilled. This type of reassurance, the wonderful setting and Abi's genuine love and knowledge of cats makes this Hotel by far the best we have ever come across and we have owned cats for many years. We have already booked again for September. Well done, Abi you have got it 'just right!'

  • 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’.

  • A guaranteed home away from home

    I have been bringing my cats to stay with Abi at Longcroft for several years now and I could argue that they prefer being there to being at home! They clearly love it there as when I collect them they are content, relaxed and have clearly thrived. Abi is always very aware of the welfare of cats in her care, and on occasions when I've had concerns about the health of one of my cats she has kept a close eye on him, monitored his weight and how much he was eating and kept me updated of how he was whilst I was away. A guaranteed home away from home for cats.

An amazing service ran by people who truly love cats. We received regular updates and our cats received the best care in our absence that I can imagine- excellent.

My cat Prince stayed at Longcroft for two and a half weeks whilst we were on holiday in February, and was treated like royalty. I came home to one happy and beautifully groomed and relaxed pet, so much so that he didn't want to leave! The care he received was excellent and I loved the little touch of a goody bag that he was given when he left. Abi was a,along with the updates and photos of him that she regularly sent whilst we were away, I will never send him anywhere else than Longcroft. A truly 5 star pet experience!

5⭐️ facilities and services ! Our two cats Chester and Caesar stayed for a short break in December whilst we we’re having some work completed at home. We found Longcroft by accident to be honest but to say our two cats had a great time is an understatement . Abi and lily were brilliant ! They were attentive , they listened and understood our cats needs and looked after them so well . You can tell that they have a lot of love for the cats in their care . Our cats looked so happy and content in their holiday photos ( another super bonus ) and updates . We have already booked them for a summer vacation and are planning on using Longcroft for all our mini breaks and holidays in the future. The service before, during and after cannot be faulted.

Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel in Welwyn is fantastic. Our cats were so happy here. The genuine love and care given by Abi Purser is incomparable. We have every faith and trust in the service Longcroft provide, and feel able to relax when we are away knowing they are being so well looked after.

My gorgeous little princess loved her stay. She is a shy and timid little thing, therefore felt anxious leaving her in a strange place. However, as soon as she arrived, Ellie was made welcome and wasn't long before she came out of her shell. I would highly recommend Longcroft and Abi's love and care for cats truly shows. Ellie will be sure to stay again in the near future! Thank you Abi for making Ellie's first time away from home, so enjoyable =^^=

Superb facility and amazing business owners... I don't have a clue why anyone would choose to put their cats anywhere else

Abi and her team at Longcroft go the extra mile to make sure your cat’s stay is second to none. We were extremely happy with the service, pricing and the communication throughout the time we were away. We also received regular updates via email with pictures! There are plenty of different options and extras available including treats and more.I wouldn’t take our cat anywhere else after this experience. When we returned to collect her, she didn’t want to leave she seemed so happy! Compared to other cattery’s it’s a different experience, exceptionally clean, well managed and stress-free! 100% would recommend and return!

We were very anxious about leaving our two silver bengal girls whilst we went away, they are high energy and need lots of attention! Abi reassured us that she is well equipped to care for special breeds and was totally prepared to deal with our cats' dietary requirements. We were kept updated each day with photos and fun anecdotes about the girls' day. I would definitely recommend Longcroft Welwyn to anyone that cant bear the idea of leaving their pets in a cattery. Our girls came home very happy with a super cute gift bag, and we have already booked them in for their next stay!

Last year I put my cat in a cattery and he came out sostressed out. His fur was pouring out of him.I hoped the name of this place lived up to its words.I was not disappointed, it was lovely and warm.Phoenix loved it. The owner Abi, is a pure cat loverand she made me feel at ease by sending me some photos of Phoenix. When I arrived to take him home I think he wanted to stay. Abi had looked after him so well.I can highly recommend Longcroft. Phoenix will be back :-)
