About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea Pigs

Please check our facebook page for our reviews and photos - 'Manda's Ark - Small Animal Boarding'. Manda's Ark emerged when I was looking for boarding for my rabbits but couldn't find anywhere that gave them the space and freedom I wanted. A lot of thought went into the design and the accommodation was made to my specific requirements. I wanted to provide as natural an environment as possible and give them 24hr access to outside plus keep them occupied with enrichment. I am also a member of the RWAF and also foster bunnies from the local rescue.


All hutches meet RWAF guidelines (6ftx2ftx2ft), they are based inside the bunny barn. All hutches have a sleeping area away from draughts and a living area with access to their private enclosures which are 6ftx8ft. There is also a fenced garden area which encircles the bunny barn where they can be out lying in the sun or shady areas and foraging for themselves.


All enclosures have a range of enrichment - hay tunnels and tubes to hide in, natural wood platforms to hop onto and bask in the sun. They can exercise whenever they chose, and we also like to make them hidey dens to play in. Runs can be covered in bad weather. There is also the bunny garden to run around in, mostly exercising me when trying to catch them again!

Health & Hygiene:

All hutches, after being cleaned, are sprayed with Virkon S, as is the outside space and enrichment. Virkon S is safe for buns and guinea pigs but will kill bacteria, fungi and virus's. We do ask that animals are brought to us in good health (vaccination cards please!) and cleanliness. Details will be taken of food preferences though you will need your own dried pellets. Fresh water and Hay given everyday plus a variety of safe foraged plants and seasonal vegetables.

Lovely family with a great set up for guinea pigs and bunnies. Lots of space for them to run around. Our 2 guinea pigs have been well looked after, will definitely use them again.

We've used Manda's Ark to board our 4 guinea pigs over the last 2 years. Amanda genuinely cares for the animals while they are with her. They are well looked after, played with by her family and have occasionally come back with their nails trimmed as a bonus! We have left our guinea pigs for a couple of days and a couple of weeks and both times they return looking well and contented and have no problem settling back home. The cost of boarding is reasonably priced and we would definitely recommend them to others.
