Article written by Rushcliffe Borough Council about Nook & Cranny, West Bridgford - Serviced apartments.
Occasionally, we feature local businesses who get in touch, or who we notice are doing well. It's all part of boosting Borough business.
Katie Aungles, Director of Nook and Cranny, has found a lucrative niche offering home-from-home short-term lettings in serviced apartments in West Bridgford. Katie set up Nook and Cranny as a lettings agency in 2001. Spotting a gap in the market and a great opportunity, she expanded into short-term lets last year.
Nook and Cranny’s short-term lettings service provides luxury accommodation for professionals moving to the area and Katie herself ensures they have a good stay by offering a concierge service. She deals with many top UK and foreign clients and her serviced apartments are furnished with the executive and their family in mind. She pays attention to every detail and each of her client’s requirements, and it is this high level of service that keeps people coming back.
As Katie said, “Moving jobs and re-locating is a big upheaval so I want to make it as painless as possible for people. I’m happy to make sure there’s milk in the fridge when they arrive or a cot up for their baby, it’s all about the details”.
Katie’s approach is certainly working and business is booming. Having set up and built a small business herself, Katie makes every effort to support other small businesses in West Bridgford. She employs a local PA, marketing services, handyman, solicitor and accountant. She also encourages the people who stay with her to put their money back into the local economy, by eating out in West Bridgford for example.
Katie describes herself as a ‘connector’‘– a bridge between people wanting somewhere really nice to stay with people who have somewhere really nice to let. As well as professionals, many of her clients are away on leisure or attending sporting events at one of the nearby football or cricket venues.
Nook and Cranny offer lets for a minimum of one week up to a year and has a wide range of luxury one and two bedroom apartments in central West Bridgford. Katie has met the need for short-term accommodation that has all the home comforts anyone could want with personal service – and all for less than the price of a hotel room.
