This is our first experience of using a cattery. We booked at short notice and found Max to be extremely helpful & friendly, the facilities looked clean & well cared for - all of which gave us confidence in leaving Milo there.
We received a video of Milo while we were away which showed a very content cat & this is how we found him when we picked him up, he had clearly been given a lot of attention (thank you Sophie) and looked well cared for. We would absolutely recommend this cattery.

Our first time using a Cattery with our little furbaby, and could not be more happy with Kathy and Simon, would recommend them to anyone looking for a safe place to entrust their furbaby. Was regularly updated with pictures and videos which was very much appreciated. Will definitely have our baby be a regular guest.

What a fantastic place, the staff were lovely and my two Siamese kittens(Cleo and Patraa) were well and truly spoilt-would recommend to anyone who wants their cats to be well looked after-will definitely be using again in the future (not even sure if they wanted to come home with me!!!)

We went to visit around 6 different catteries in Essex and Crayside was by far the very best! There is a reason it only has 5 star reviews. The pens the cats stay in are really lovely and modern, each one has a cat tree which is a must for our cat. They’re also a really good size. The pens overlook a lovely garden so the cats are entertained all day, and they get given lots of attention. We even got a video of our cat snuggles with the staff which was a lovely surprise and made us feel very happy that we knew he was okay there.

The staff are all really friendly, welcoming and knowledgable and I could tell they all actually enjoy what they do. When showing us around they clearly know and spend time with all the cats there. Booking process is really easy, and drop off/pick up was also really easy. Also extremely reasonably priced with the heating fee included. I wouldn’t take my cat anywhere else!

Great people who genuinely love cats. They really came through for me when I unexpectedly needed an extra few days boarding and I brought a very happy cat home too. Will definitely use Crayside Cattery again.

I dont know what they do to my cat but they can carry on. He's so happy when we pick him. At other catterys when we've collected him he wont come near us for a couple of days and sits with his back to us. But here, he purrs all the time, he's put weight on, he's a different cat. Lovely place. I cannot rate it high enough. Excellent
