About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirds

We have kept Pekin Bantam Chickens since 2011 and have hatched quite a few chicks. They are spoilt rotten by us picking them up, chatting to them & handing them treats!


We can give your Poultry, Chickens, Ducks, Parrots, Rabbits, Guinea pigs, Tortoises, and many more pets a lovely holiday home. They will stay in a stone built house which is bright and airy inside. There are wood chippings on the floor & in the hutches for small furries. We will keep small guests like budgies, hamsters & mice indoors, you will need to bring them in their own cages.

There is a Cotswold Coop with roosting bars and nesting box in the Den. The Coop is plastic to ensure there is no rot, insects, moisture & splintering.

There is plenty of room in the Den for small animals to play in if you would like them to have exercise. 

For Ducks, we have a small free standing 'pond' that can be put inside the Den.

The Den is locked up every night so your pets will be kept safe.

Come round and visit, see how they will be treated like royalty! 

Health & Hygiene:

The Den is regularly disinfected and is sprayed with smite.

All guests will be kept separated from our chickens - we don't want any fights!

Unfortunately, we can not accept Cockerels .

We left our aging pet chicken for two weeks. She was well cared for. Owners of the establishment are very welcoming and friendly. Would not hesitate to repeat the experience. Only downside was that there is no outside run but the shed is spacious and light.

Boarders Response:Thank you for your review. We are glad you are satisfied that we looked after Carla well. We hope to see you again soon.

Well, my 'girls' have been well looked after whilst we had a short holiday. This should be called Cluckingham Palace as their accommodation was excellent. Very clean and safe, with their own hut and plenty of room to wander around. Fed and watered with treats daily! No worries about them at all whilst I was away. Customer service exceptional and extremely knowledgeable. Certainly recommend The Chicken Den and will be using on my next holiday. Thank you so much.

Boarders Response:Thank you for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure to have your well behaved 'girls' stay with us. We are looking forward to seeing them again.

You are obviously going to want to check that your pets will be kept in a 'Clean, Safe a Warm Hotel' while you are away, so please feel free to come round and visit - just give us a ring to make sure there is someone available.
