Crofton Cattery

Luxury Cattery

David Latta approached us as his wife Julie was interested in running her own high-end cattery. We advised David as to current licence requirements and helped with design and planning. As David wanted to install the building himself we manufactured the building in 2 phases to suit his schedule.

About Crofton Cattery

Run by husband and wife team Julie and David Latta from the garden of their family home, Crofton Cattery is conveniently located in the heart of Braiswick, Colchester. It offers feline guests a luxurious stay with stunning views of the garden and nearby golf course.

Having worked as a nurse in the NHS for 32 years, it was always Julie’s dream to run her own boarding cattery and with the help and support of husband David her dream has turned into reality. Julie retired from her nursing career to dedicate herself to the opening and running of the cattery.

Crofton Cattery welcomed its first guests in June 2019 and has been growing in popularity since with some guests already enjoying second and third holidays. It has received some amazing reviews which can be found on our Facebook page.

By installing the building ourselves we got a real sense of "ownership" and pride which helped considerably when moving into the business start-up phase.

The assembly manual from Pedigree Pens is comprehensive....It is user friendly and having both Marcus and Paul at the end of the phone when needed was extremely helpful.

In conclusion I would say to anyone contemplating self-assembly if you have the time, positive attitude, a little help and the right tools definitely go for it.
