About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsReptilesHamsters, Mice etc.

We offer a friendly and professional approach to caring for your pet whilst in our care. If your pet is not in the list, please ask, especially birds and ferrets any other pets will be accommodated where possible.
I personally have numerous years of experience of keeping guinea pigs ,rabbits, chincillas, budgies as well as breeding and keeping of chipmunks.
You will need to supply your pets own food for the stay as we do not want any upset tummies.


All boarders are always given as much space as possible and rabbits are always accommodated in two tier hutches. These are clean and well kept and weather permitting your rabbit will only be in here during the night the rest of the time will be spent playing out in a grassed pen, chatting to our own pets and other boarders.


All boarders are put out daily in grassed pens, weather permitting with fruit sticks to chew and toys to play with. They will also be given shelter (sun/rain) dependent on the weather.

Health & Hygiene:

Rabbits must be vaccinated against myxomatosis before boarding.
If your pet requires medicating during there stay this is not a problem.
If during your pets stay we feel they need veterinary attention, we will take them to our own local vet immediately.

Brilliant, never left my parrot with anyone but family before and only then he would still stay in his own cage at home, so was quite nervous leaving him with a stranger bit I had read the reviews and they were all top notch. When we arrived I realized why, this family know how to look after animals and the place was situated in a quite location and seemed a very peaceful happy family home. Straight away they let me coax him into a very clean cage full of toys, I explained to Lisa what treats I brought with me and a routine he has around giving him a spray shower as he over preens. I knew I left him on safe hands for 2 weeks and they kept me updated while I was away on how he was settling. Picking him he looked very content and getting home he settled straight away in his cage. Gone has the problem of caring for my bird when I go away as I will be booking him in at Lisa,s without a second thought.

Our pet, a small Senegal parrot, has stayed with Lisa on three occasions including upto a month. She appears to enjoy the change and having other animals and children around. She always comes home very happy and settles into her old routine immediately. I thoroughly recommend Lisa for looking after parrots.

Fantastic family run pet boarding, Chicco my African Grey absolutely loves his holidays here, he's always so content & happy, and no strops when I get him home! Which says a lot to me as previously when left at different boarding it can take him weeks to come around after picking him up, Max & Ash our tortoises also very content and love being around a family and children. I would highly recommended to any one with pets, I can now truly enjoy my holidays knowing my pets are happy and well looked after.

5 From Cheryl on

Lovely family boarding for Rabbits, Guinea Pigs etc. Our two rabbits definitely thrived whilst there and it was great to relax on holiday knowing they were being cared for. Lots of space and good sized accommodation. However, I think they miss their new pig and chicken friends since coming home.
