Karen looked after our 15 month old baby boy during our wedding. I was a little nervous about leaving him with a stranger so we met in advance and Karen’s professionalism and friendliness put me at ease. On the day Karen dealt with our tired little boy perfectly, putting him to bed and he slept soundly in her care. Thanks v much Karen! Would highly recommend

Karen came and babysat my girls when we stayed at Cameron Lodge. She was so friendly and lovely and even dropped off a baby walker and a high chair to help us for the few days we were staying.
The girls took to her immediately and I completely felt at ease leaving my 2.5yr old and 7months old with her. We will definitely be calling on her when we come back! Thanks Karen! X
