Kirsty is head of change over days in the cabins. She makes sure that everything runs smoothly and that the cabins are exactly how you would expect them to be on arrival. We would not operate without her!! As well as working for us Kirsty also works for National Rail, she is one seriously busy girl. We asked her a few question to get to know her a bit more.

What is it you do for National Rail?

I work as a rail contractor for an agency that supplies staff to various rail companies. My jobs and skills are varied but mostly my work is enabling works in order for other work to be carried out. One day I could be turning the power off to the over head lines and making them safe or I could be moving machines and trains across different rail lines on worksites in order for them to reach their jobs. A lot more goes into rail work than people realise it’s always different and I get to travel around the country and see different places.

What are your hobbies?

Working strange hours means I don’t get too much tine off but when I do I like to spend it with friends and family. I like to try out new things, recently I started doing trampoline fitness classes. I like going for spa weekends and exploring different places either in the UK or abroad. When at home I enjoy watching films or reading.

What is your favourite pub/attraction?

I’d have to say my favourite pub is also in my favourite local attraction because I had my wedding there. The Foxton Locks Inn and Foxton Locks canal. The food is amazing the atmosphere is always lovely and friendly and it’s based right on the canal so you can eat and watch the boats and the local wildlife.

Finally what would be your tip to someone staying at the cabins?

My advice would be to do some research before you come. There are so many little gems to find and so many things to do in the local area and a little further out all within an hour of the lodges. It’s an amazing place to be based wether you want to explore or just enjoy the peace and quiet around the lodges.  While at the lodges I would advise to look up – we often have lots of kite flying around along with some other wild birds and they are amazing to watch.
