About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsReptilesHamsters, Mice etc.

We have kept 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!

Now taking bookings for Christmas and New Year. We are keeping the fees the same, Five Pounds per cage per night!


We can give your Poultry, Chickens, Ducks, Parrots, Rabbits, Guinea pigs, Mice, Hamsters, reptiles and many more pets a lovely holiday home.

Your ''outside'' pets will stay in a stone built 'Den' which is bright and airy. Inside the Den we have a Guinea Pig hutch and 2 Rabbit hutches, one with a built-in run. Chickens can also use the hutches as well as an outdoor hutch and run. There is an outdoor wooden hutch for Rabbits or Guinea Pigs. It's covered with a rain proof sheet at night. These will be filled with straw or wood chippings. There will also be a litter tray in the hutch.

We do always have apples and carrots on hand!

You are welcome to bring your pets in their own hutches if you feel your pets would be more comfortable. You will need to bring their food & bedding, if they do not sleep on wood shavings or straw.

For ''indoor'' small pets we have an area set aside in the house with us where they will be cosy and yet have plenty of daylight, as well as lots of attention! You will need to bring their food and any specific treats that they like.

​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.

All of our furry guests will be offered a little Welcome Gift to gnaw on, which they can take home with them if there is any of it left!

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!

My guinea pig enjoyed his holiday at The Chicken and Small Animals Den and will be taking another one there in the near future.

5 From Pauline Homer on

Boarders Response:Thank you Pauline, glad 'Little Man' enjoyed his stay. Lovely guest! Look forward to seeing you again soon.

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.

4 From Ann on

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.

5 From Kathryn Walker on

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.
