About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: Guinea Pigs

As a long-term piggy lover and ex-breeder I offer quality care and attention for your piggies while you are away. They will enjoy lots of handling and lots of chats. All shapes, sizes, ages, breeds and temperaments are welcome; fussy eaters are not a problem and special diets can be arranged. Piggy Pamper Spa Days are also available to boarders and non boarders alike. In short - nothing is too much trouble!

Accommodation:

I offer both inside and outside accommodation for guineas. Outside garden accommodations are individual free standing units situated in a secluded area close to the house. They are spacious, sturdy, insulated and fully weatherproof. Hotties in the winter! Sizes 6ft by 2ft, 5ft by 2ft and 4ft by 2ft.
Inside accommodation is equally spacious and is available in the Piggy Room Inn, a bespoke building located in a sunny spot in the garden. The building is fully insulated, softly lit at night and heated in the winter. Large L-shaped accommodations are perfect for groups of guineas or long-stay guests.

Exercise:

Piggies are offered as much run time as possible, weather permitting. Runs are large, covered, part shaded and on grass. All runs have hideaways and tunnels for play - piggies are welcome to bring their own toys along if they would like! No run rotation; runs are moved to fresh grass after each use.

Health & Hygiene:

A full, healthy and complete diet is provided every day. Hygiene is paramount; piggies have a fresh soft barley straw bed every night and cages are disinfected with Formula H (a broad spectrum preparation to act against viruses, bacteria and fungal spores). When vacated, cages are cleaned out, hoovered, steam-cleaned and disinfected before new guineas are introduced, and all are warm, safe, windproof and waterproof.

Small Pet Boarding Prices

Includes fresh veg daily, all bedding and floor litter, unlimited hay and of course lots of attention. Please provide your own piggy's brand of dry food. Single piggy £5 per night, two piggies sharing £7 per night, three piggies sharing £9. Claw clipping is free of charge. Please ask about multiple piggy/long stay requirements; I am understanding and realistic about these matters and am happy to negotiate on terms. Cash payment is required on the day of arrival unless we have agreed otherwise.

My guinea pigs spent a few hours with ingrid for their spa day and in a lovely indoor run made for them. They came home with me looking wonderful afterwards. I would highly recommend to anyone.

5 From Hannah on

Our guinea pig spent a very happy week here. He settled in really well and was wonderfully well looked after. He's a loan boar so needs lots of attention and he certainly got it. Will definitely be booking him in next time we go on holiday!

5 From Beth on

Ingrid obviously loves Guinea Pigs and this was reflected in the superb care she offered to our two piggies who had a lovely holiday at Piggy Boarding whilst we relaxed on our holiday.

5 From Stefan Otto on

We couldn't recommend ingrid and her piggy hotel highly enough, our 2 guineas were beautifully looked after, for an extremely reasonable price , meaning we could go away safe in the knowledge our children's pets were safe and sound , will definitely be using this service again x

From elena rolfe on

Piggy boarding is great. We could tell that our guinea pigs enjoyed their time when i picked them up as usually they are shy but where more welcoming after spending their time there. Definitely recommend

5 From Andrew on

Our 2 guineas had a weekend with Ingrid and both came back to us healthy and happy. Ingrid is clearly very knowledgeable about Guinea Pigs and obviously has a love for them. Our 2 will definitely be going back for 2 weeks in the summer. Their spa day left them beautifully clean and soft! Many thanks

5 From Tony White on

I am new in having guinea pigs, and when we went on holiday we took our piggies here. I have never felt so fine with leaving my pets with someone. They got their favourite food, love and attention and we got send a lovely photo of their stay when we were on holiday. Great service, Ingrid is a very sweet and kind lady who clearly loves and cares for her customers and piggies! I definitely recommend this amazing guinea hotel!

5 From Wendy on

Highly recommend using Andover Piggy Boarding. Ingrid who owns this business is lovely, very knowledgeable and adores looking after your Guinea pigs. Fantastic set up , a little palace. We will be returning in the very near future. Helen

5 From Helen on

Thank you Ingrid for taking such good care of my two guinea pigs this week and providing a large, well equiped run. As first time guinea pig owners it has been very useful to receive advice from someone with so much experience. We will definitely be using Andover Piggy Boarding in the future.

5 From Jane on

Ingrid was very friendly, knowledgeable about Guinea pigs and had very comfortable, cosy housing for our piggies. We would highly recommend and will be repeat customers. Thanks Ingrid!

5 From Ellie Morgan on

Ingrid is brilliant. When we first got our little Guinea Pigs, we took them along for a Spa Day. Ingrid not only had a lovely manner with our little piggies, she spent time with our children explaining how to handle the Guinea Pigs and how to care for them. Our little Guinea Pigs have stayed with her twice and we couldn't be happier with the care she gives them. A huge thank you from us. We are so glad we found you.

5 From Joanne Davis on

My two girls loved their first stay with Ingrid, it is such a brilliant set up and Ingrid clearly cares about each and everyone of her boarders. Piggly and Jiggely are looking forward to their next stay.

5 From Jenni on

Beemo and Luna loved there stay with you Ingrid, they were chirping all the way home and are in such a happy mood. It's great to have peace of mind when on holiday and you certainly gave us that. Thank you for all your help and I know the girls will be excited to come and stay again. X

From Mimi and Dani on

My two guinea pigs were booked in for a spa day to have a well needed cut and pamper. Ingrid was so welcoming and friendly. She obviously knows a great deal about Guineas and was very kind in sharing her knowledge with me. So attentive to their needs and they seemed really happy and comfortable around her. They are timid and ingrid made sure they weren't overwhelmed. They had a bath and hair cut and they look and smell beautiful. So happy with the service. Ingrid is professional and absolutely lovely. Recommend 100%

5 From Kelly orford on

My guinea pigs had a spa day and loved it! Ingrid was so lovely and knowledgable and my guinea pigs came back looking beautiful and were very relaxed, the facilities Ingrid has are also amazing I will definitely be booking them in again for another spa day.

5 From Lily on

I am so grateful to have found Ingrid's guinea pig boarding house for our 2 new guinea pigs. Not only is the accommodation five star, but Ingrid is an incredibly caring, knowledgeable and attentive host. The guinea pigs seemed very happy, and I've come away with lots of helpful advice about looking after guinea pigs. This is a great place to bring your pets as you really won't be feeling guilty for leaving them behind: it will be a lovely "home away from home" for them.

5 From Nadia Sajadi-Rosen on

My pigs spent October half term with Ingrid. I hadn't visited beforehand so the first time that I met Ingrid was when I dropped my pigs off. Within 5 minutes of us arriving she had introduced herself as 'Aunty Ingrid' and had wrapped them up in a fleecy blanket and was cuddling them. I felt so reassured and knew that they were going to be very well looked after! They were indeed well looked after. Ingrid sent me a photo half way through which I appreciated. They have come home really happy and well cared for. I would absolutely recommend Ingrid to anyone needing guinea pig boarding. She clearly loves guinea pigs which shines through in her dedication to keeping them happy and well cared for in your absence.

5 From Jenny Gauntlett on

So glad we found Ingrid - she clearly loves guinea pigs and looked after our two so well, that I was a bit worried they might not want to come back home. It gives real piece of mind to know that your piggies are looked after by someone who is extremely knowledgeable and experienced.

5 From Louise Kan on

My girls Molly and Mary have just spent 2 weeks with Ingrid and I truly believe they enjoyed their holiday as much as I enjoyed mine. Ingrid is a wonderful lady with so much experience with guineas offering lovely spacious, clean accommodation and lots of cuddles. Ingrid even sent photos of my girls enjoying their stay while I was away. I have full confidence in leaving them with her again for my next break. Five star Guinea Pig Hotel without a doubt. Thank you Ingrid xx

5 From lyn roberts on

Ingrid looked after our two guinea pigs (Mittens & Hero) over the summer holidays and I was really impressed. She was professional, caring and attentive - sending us updates (including photographs) while we were away! Mittens and Hero came back from their holidays healthy and happy, appearing to have enjoyed their time at Andover Piggy Boarding immensely (my children call it the "Piggy Hotel"). We will definitely be booking with Ingrid again!

5 From Kim Emmerson on

We dropped off our 3 six month old guineas with Ingrid for two weeks, whilst we were away on holiday. Ingrid was so nice and welcoming, and you can tell she really loves to look after all the guineas. A great bonus was the pictures we recieved of the guineas as we were on holiday, and the little updates to know that they were doing great! As soon as we book our next holiday, we will be booking them back in here straight away!

5 From Bethany May on

What a relaxing day I have had. Been thoroughly pampered. I'm so handsome now! Thank you Auntie Ingrid, you spoil me!! Love from Pix.

5 From Marian Brewer on

Our 3 guineas had a fabulous holiday. Pepsi had a spa day - she went in looking very scruffy and emerged looking very glamorous ! Mango and Cherry loved the banquets. Ingrid is obviously rather besotted by guinea pigs and they couldn't have been in better hands.

5 From Zoe Kim Amy on

We left our guinea Edna with Ingrid for a spa day ,and what a wonderful time she had. She had a bath and new hairdo as she was quite matted. It was clear to me that Ingrid has a real passion for guineas and is so loving and gentle with them. She also gave me some useful tips about cages. We will be returning for future spa days

5 From Paula walters on

My guinea pigs have had the best time and look so mush better, their hair is so neat and its helped out alot, but they always love it when i send them there and you always take great care of them im definitely taking my guineas here again. Thank you ever so much Ingrid, Many Thanks Zeta

5 From zeta lofthouse on

Thank you so much for looking after Fizzy and Bubbles - they had a wonderful time with you- it was great to get the update photos too. Would totally recommend and hope to see you again.

From dawn nicol on

We have just returned from leaving our piggie with Ingrid for 4 nights and would thoroughly recommend Andover Piggy Boarding. It is clear that Ingrid has great knowledge and loves all the piggies she looks after, giving a first class service. The photo and email I received whilst away was reassuring she was ok. I would most definitely take our piggy there again. Thank you.

5 From Sally Maryon on

Ingrid took great care of our piggies whilst we were on holiday. The facilities were great and Ingrid was very friendly and knowledgable. The email updates were a bonus too! I would definitely use Andover piggy boarding again.

5 From Imogen on

Ingrid is a lovely and kind lady with a home that I truly believe to be Guinea Pig heaven! I'm extremely happy with the service and my piggys settled in comfortably from the minute we got them in. Having other Guinea pigs around really helped them to become more social. Plus, they even got to play in the grass! I would recommend Ingrid to anyone seeking a trustworthy pet carer.

5 From Lola on

My Boys Carl and Lennie have just spent two glorious weeks with Ingrid. Her accommodation for them is amazing and i'm sure i saw a look off disapproval when they got home. Her Hutches, and bowls are clean and immaculate. Ingrid asks for lots of information when you book in and then uses it to help your pigs be happy while they are away from home. I will not hesitate to book them in again. We had a good holiday knowing they where safe and well.

5 From Kaye Pointer on

I luckily found Andover piggy boarding whilst searching google for local small animal boarding and I am so happy I did. Ingrid is the most wonderful lady who has a very genuine love for guinea pigs, from the first time meeting her I knew I wanted her to look after my guineas, she has super facilities that are very spacious and clean and she takes into account what size cage the piggies are used to. My two guineas were incredibly well looked after and Ingrid even clipped their nails on my request which was a super help to me. I will use Andover piggy boarding for as long as I have my guinea pigs and I absolutely recommend Ingrid to anyone needing boarding for their guinea pigs.

5 From sophie on

We were very impressed with Ingrid's love and care for our piggies and with her set up for boarding. She could not have been more obliging - great communication before and during the stay. We would definitely recommend Ingrid's services and have already booked for our next holiday!

5 From Kirsten Salter on

We could not be happier with the service provided by Ingrid. Both our Guinea Pigs are quite young and very fidgety so we had a lot of trouble trying to give them a haircut, but after spending 6 hours in the lap of luxury both had lovely short hair and nails. They had both had baths and Ingrid even gave me advice on how to get Sweeney and Todd to use the ramp in there new cage. We will definitely be using Andover Piggy Boarding again.

5 From Ben Samways on

Ingrid is absolutely fantastic! She looked after our six guinea pigs for a whole month and I didn't have to worry at all because I knew they were in very safe hands! Ingrid sent us regular updates with photos which put us at ease as we knew they were being looked after so well. The facilities are excellent and Ingrid's passion for guinea pigs is truly amazing. I highly recommend her and will definitely be booking the piggies with Ingrid again!

5 From Saidhanya on

Ingrid is absolutely amazing! She really took care of our boys and I could tell the moment I dropped them off how much she loves Guinea pigs. She kept me updated throughout with emails and photos and when I picked them up I saw them both snuggled up sleeping! I noticed how relaxed they were when we got them home and they both looked very well groomed and gorgeous after their spa day! Ingrid is very knowledgeable about Guinea pigs and gave us some helpful tips too. Excellent prices. I'll only ever ask Ingrid to look after my boys. Thank you very, very much. Dean, Poppy, Ralph and Robbie.

5 From Poppy Webster on

Another great holiday with Ingrid. Thank you. Looking forward to my next spa day!

From Pickle on

Ingrid is obviously devoted to Guinea Pigs and we had no hesitation in leaving Heidi and Gracie in her capable hands for a week. We had photo updates during the week and it was clear that they were being extremely well cared for. Recommend highly and we will certainly be booking the girls into Ingrid's 'Hotel' again.

5 From Gary Torbuck on

It's holiday time and my 3 little piggies have gone to spend it yet again with Ingrid at Andover Piggy Boarding. They will have a spa day and their much needed summer hair cuts. We can now go on holiday secure in the knowledge that our 3 little girls are being given the best care and attention possible. Excellent boarding facilities, nothing too much trouble, would thoroughly recommend.

From Christine Evans on

I would highly recommend ingrid to look after your guinea pigs.. I boarded my two with her for the first time and I felt very reassured that they would be well looked after.. I especially liked the fact she went out of her way to send me pictures and updates... I will definitely use ingrid again in the future.. Thanks again ingrid Rachael, Derek and missy x

5 From Rachael fuller on

Fabulous service. Sorted out a big fur ball for us and Boo thoroughly enjoyed her spa day !

5 From Sarah Hollingshead on

My piggies had a lovely spa day with Ingrid! As two young long-haired piggies, they are very difficult to keep still long enough for a good trim! But within just a few hours with Ingrid both piggies were relaxed enough to have a proper bath, hair cut an nail trim! When I collected them they looked so smart and relaxed. I can't thank Ingrid enough for working her magic on them. I will be sure to bring Coco and Loco back for a pamper day soon!

5 From Hannah on

Ingrid took wonderful care of our two guinea pig girls Poppy and Honey while we got married. We could not have asked for someone better and the girls thoroughly enjoyed their pampering spa session. Will recommend to friends and be using your services in future. Thank you Ingrid. Victoria and David Farrar

From Victoria Bartlett on

We left our piggies for the first time and we couldn't have wished for a more perfect holiday home for them. Ingrid is an excellent host and also very responsive to queries and emails. She has an in-depth knowledge of all things guinea pig and our girls settled straight in to their new environment. We couldn't be happier. Thanks Ingrid!

5 From Rosie Wyatt on

Our guinea pig Dandellion spent a lovely fortnight with Ingrid. Ingrid took great care of him and (since he had just lost his brother) she put him up especially in her front room so that he wouldn't get lonely. He came back a happy and well-rested pig! Highly recommended guinea pig boarding!!

5 From Brendan Robertson on

I've had another wonderful, relaxing spa day. Much needed after my recent poor health. A great way to recuperate! Looking forward to my holiday with Ingrid!

5 From Pickle on

Can't recommend highly enough! Our two pigs each had a spa day - both came back relaxed and looking great. Ingrid is knowledgable, friendly and obviously very good at what she does. Looking forward to next time. Thanks!

5 From E Saddington on

Ingrid is a lovely lady who obviously loves guinea pigs! She looked after our two guineas for five days and they looked very happy and well taken care of when we got them back. The house has a large garden with several runs where the guineas can run and eat grass. The indoors facilities are also very good, with a large run for them to do some exercise and many warm fleeces and cushions. We are very happy with Andover Piggy Boarding and will definitely use Ingrid's services again in the future!

5 From Alexandra on

Our piggies have had the most wonderful 10 day stay at Andover Piggy Boarding. They also had a spa day and they are looking beautiful. I'm sure when they arrive in the summer they will be more than pleased. The facilities are outstanding and Ingrid is so lovely with the piggies. Highly recommended.

5 From Sarah on

Sage and Chia went to have a spa day and really loved it. They first went into the indoor run with plenty of snacks and toys to play with and were soon "pop corning". They had their first bath and nails clipped and looked so relaxed and fluffy when It was time to leave. I would recommend bringing your guinea pigs for a treat.

5 From Siri Hamill-Stewart on

Many thanks Ingrid for taking such great care of Cedric during our long weekend away, we always know that he will have a lovely time with you and probably dread us picking him up! He also looks fabulous following his spa day and obviously loved it judging by the photos!

5 From Charlotte & Stuart on

We have now used Andover Piggy Boarding twice, one for our girlies to have a week's holiday and most recently for a spa day! And they loved it! We get back such well-behaved relaxed little girls when they visit APB. They never have any problems and love the care and attention they receive. I also thank Ingrid for all her advice on grooming tips for a very nervous piggy mummy to trim their claws. We definitely would recommend APB and will be using them again in the future.

5 From Suzanna & Brad on

Thank you, Ingrid for another wonderful Pamper and Spa Day. I look so handsome now! Already booked in for my summer holiday. I can't wait!!!! Pickle

5 From Marian on

We were very relieved to find a lovely home for our guinea pigs to stay in for 2 weeks! Our guinea pigs came back so relaxed and happy, and even had a spa day. Ingrid sent us photos while we were away, and just has a real love for guinea pigs. We will have no hesitation in booking them in again when we are next on holiday. Thank you Ingrid!

5 From Brown Family on

My 2 little piggies were looked after by Ingrid for three weeks. Fetched them and they were calm, clean and well groomed. I was sent beautiful photos of them while I was away. Ingrid is clearly an unpretentious animal lover, and I will definitely board them with Andover Piggy Boarding again. Thanks for looking after them so well!

5 From Pat Buchanan on

Bertie and Nibbles visited for a spa day. They arrived a tangled mess and left later with very smart (and manageable) haircuts. Ingrid had a lovely indoor area ready for them to enjoy and some favourite fresh foods. I was really impressed with the environment and the care offered by Ingrid. It felt so reassuring leaving the piggies with someone who so obviously loved guinea pigs! 100% would book again.

5 From Kathy steward on

I found Ingrid via a Google search when searching for boarding for my two Guinea pigs, due to a weeks holiday away. Right from the off, Ingrid was fantastic, informative and approachable. I absolutely knew this was the right person to leave my Guinea pigs Boris and Trevor with - they both had a brilliant time away, with a wonderful selection of fresh home grown vegetables and fresh hay everyday. The only thing I had to provide was the hard food, every thing else was catered for. It was not just a boarding place for my boys, you could tell at once Ingrid has a real way with Guinea pigs and they were extremely happy and relaxed in her company. I can't recommend Ingrid enough - as a Guinea pig carer she was fantastic, the food given was a wonderful quality and the outdoor living arrangements wonderfully roomy and fitted out with their very own "hottie". If I could give ten stars I would!

5 From Becky Horn on

When I was unable to place my 3 little piggies at their usual boarding place I took to google for some alternatives. I was taken by Ingrid's website and from our first conversation I knew this was the one. My girls were with Ingrid for 13 days and had their much needed spa day. All with very long hair I find keeping them neat and tidy a challenge to say the least! Ingrid gave me some welcome advice about grooming and gave the girls lovely hair cuts (Ingrid did ask my permission to do so). I was in Dubai for ten days and Ingrid kept me up to date with news and pictures. I was secure in the knowledge that not only were my piggies well looked after but safe and secure. I live almost twenty miles from Ingrid, so therefore a forty mile round trip. It was worth every mile. Thank you Ingrid, it is a pleasure to meet someone who gives a 100% to the care of the animals their charge.

5 From Christine Evans on

We can't thank Ingrid enough for caring so well for our two guinea pigs over the half-term holidays. She was very kind in sending us photos of their antics whilst we were travelling and my five year daughter loved this. Thomas and Charlie enjoyed themselves so much I suspect they would rather have stayed with Ingrid. Thank you and we will definitely be back in touch the next time we go on holiday.

5 From Rachel on

My two Guinea pigs Zazu & Meeko have just had their first spa day with Ingrid, and what a lovely time they had! They were both very relaxed when I collected them, and my long haired Guinea pig looked so much better after his hair cut! Ingrid made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived, she is a kind lady who really knows her stuff when it comes to animals! All Guinea pigs deserve treats and the spa days are definitely one I would recommend! I also wouldn't hesitate to leave my Guinea pigs with Ingrid if we were to go away on holiday as I know they would be so well cared for, we would have nothing to worry about!

5 From Alloe on

Sage and Chia are only 13 weeks old and had their first week away to stay with Ingrid. I have never met anyone so passionate and caring about guinea pigs. I would most definitely recommend Ingrid's piggy boarding. The facilities are meticulously clean and very spacious, with outside runs in the gardens as well as fun toys to play with in her living room! We were sent daily holiday snaps and an up date of their well being. They looked so happy when we went to collect them, pop corning and purring, being thoroughly pampered. Ingrid also makes sure your guinea's are given their favorite food.Sage and Chia are looking forward to spending their first Christmas there.

5 From Annabel Hamill-Stewart on

We stayed at Ingrids for the weekend whilst our Mum went away for the weekend. Both of us thoroughly loved our stay and nothing has gone unnoticed in making our holiday as wonderful as possible. We both had a spa and arrived home smelling fabulous and both very relaxed (so much so we fell asleep on our blankie for ages) we definately would love to stay at Ingrids again- all the love and attention we piggies should be given was in abundance. Our favourite foods were supplied fresh from the garden and were so tasty! Mum even said she had some emails with some photos giving updates! (That was a lovely touch) Take our word for it, Ingrid is the best for us piggies and we would like to thank her for our stay at Andover Piggy Boarding. We would say 10/10 piglet stars!!! Hope to see you again soon! Cuddles and squeeks, Patch and Ron Piggy xxxxx

5 From Patch and Ron on

Andover Piggy Boarding in one word AMAZING. The set up Ingrid has is brilliant. The care and attention she give to the piggies is outstanding. Lovely big hutches for them to sleep in and their own individual runs for daytime grazing. She even offers a pamper day for the piggies, which my piggies loved. She will always go that extra mile and has loads of advice to give. If you are ever looking for someone to look after your piggies whilst you away Andover Piggy Boarding is definitely the place to go.

From Victoria Durbajlo on

Ingrid looked after Chloe, our guinea pig, for four weeks this summer and we couldn't have chosen a better place. We felt that Chloe was also on holiday while we were away. Ingrid kept us updated with emails and pictures of Chloe and when we picked her up Chloe looked very happy. Ingrid is clearly a very caring person who loves looking after the guineas and she is very organised with runs, sleeping places for the guineas and home grown vegetables. She was also very kind to look after our goldfish, Nemo, while we were away. Many thanks Ingrid and we will definitely be coming back.

5 From Theo and Rania on

We cannot thank you enough Ingrid for looking after our girlie Caramel in such a caring and expert way. She was so well looked after and pampered, loved the cuddles and being around other Guinea Pigs again. The accommodation and environment is wonderful and the host second to none. We highly recommend Andover Piggy Boarding and are so glad we found this fantastic place :D

5 From Karen & Hal Kirgin on

I can't recommend Andover Piggy Boarding highly enough. Ingrid took amazing care of our two guinea pigs (Fluffy and Ginger Nut), while we were on holiday. She even e-mailed us while we were away to update us on how they were getting on and sent photos of the great time that they were having. When we picked them up they had been groomed, cleaned and their nails cut. They had obviously had a great little holiday themselves. I will definitely be using Andover Piggy Boarding every time we go away.

5 From Charles Sheppard on

Guinea pig boarding is fab. I left my two guinea pigs, Daisy and Brie for two weeks, they came back calm and relaxed. They had a super spa, they had their nails clipped, fur cut and a wash which made their fur super soft. Many thanks for Ingrid.

5 From Matylda on

We booked our 2 Guinea Pigs (Bubbles and Squeak) in for a 12 day stay with Ingrid. As this was a long break, they were entitled to a free pampering session which we took them to Ingrid prior to our holiday, whilst they were there our Long Haired Pig was given a hair cut (as trying to do it ourselves was stressful for all concerned). Literally within in seconds of Ingrid picking her up, she was cutting away her excess hair, and Bubbles didn't have a care in the world. If you are looking for someone who truly cares about your Pet, then look no further than Ingrid and Andover Piggy Boarding. We will definitely be booking them in again for a pampering session and when we go on holiday again. A massive thank you to Ingrid.

5 From Debbie Wilson on

i love piggy boarding my guinea pigs where so happy and its an amazing price and its like luxury for them im going here for my guineas more often because its just amazing from Zeta on 30/08/15 sorry no pic

From Zeta on

The minute we met Ingrid we knew our precious guinepigs would be well taken care of and we were right. The location is in a fabulous area with ample room and entertainment by Ingrid and fellow guests. The guinea pigs must have been spoilt as they looked healthy and happy on our return. Excellent grooming and spa facilities for the guineapigs as well as as personal care. I would highly recommend this established facility and would love our ladies to be sent there each time we were away. Well done n thank you Ingrid

From Maria Figueira Jones on

Many thanks for taking such excellent care of Nibbles and Minty -- they've clearly enjoyed their stay at Andover Piggy Boarding and seem to have grown in confidence too! We were worried about moving such young piggies (only 4/5 months old) into unfamiliar surroundings whilst we were away on holiday, but Ingrid did a super job at making them feel happy and comfortable in their new surroundings. And, as first-time guinea-pig owners, it was wonderful to get advice from a real expert in the field! Thanks again, Ingrid -- we'll be back!

5 From Michael Gale on

We think Ingrid should add another name to her belt - the guinea pig whisperer. Our two boys have come back totally relaxed and happy after spending nearly 2 weeks in 5* accommodation getting lots of love and attention. Not only has Ingrid adapted the hutches to give the boarders ultimate luxury and fun, when I needed to add on a day because of change of travel plans, Ingrid came up trumps. I have no hesitation in recommending Ingrid and will most definitely be booking the boys in again in the near future.

5 From Victoria FitzGerald on

Ingrid, looked after our two guinea pigs whilst we were away on holiday. She took fantastic care of our spritly two. They seemed to settle in quickly and throughly enjoyed their own little holiday with cuddles, exercise and even a trim. My children loved the photo updates that came through to us whilst we were away too. They came home and settled straight back into our family life. We will definitely be contacting and using Ingrid again for future holidays. What a lovely lady :)

5 From Naomi on

Ingrid was such a kind, caring and knowledgeable person who we felt would take great care of our 3 guinea pigs - we were not disappointed!! Our 3 girls stayed with Ingrid for 17 nights and throughout this time we received regular photos and updates about their stay. They all had their nails clipped and our sheltie, Mabel, had her own spa day! I will always use Ingrid if we go away again as I know the girls will be thoroughly pampered and we can go away worry free. I cannot recommend Ingrid enough! Thank you Ingrid for your amazing care and obvious love of guinea pigs!!

5 From Lisa on

We picked our two guineas up yesterday after a 6 night stay with Ingrid and they looked so happy and content in their run with their freshly grown veggies! Ingrid is a lovely lovely lady who clearly has a passion for guinea pigs and loves each and every one of them. She cut their claws too and gave us advice on keeping them nice and short. I don't think that there's anything that Ingrid doesn't know about guineas! The grass in the garden is gorgeous and the piggies love grazing on it during the day, both of mine had nice full tummies when we collected them! Ingrid was also kind enough to email us lots of pictures of them while we were away so that my daughter could see how happy they were. We will be using Ingrid again in October and any other future holidays etc and I highly recommend her. 5 star hotel for piggies!

5 From Sarah on

Ingrid is a wonderful caring person. We have just returned from our holiday to find two very happy piggies. They are my daughters and she was worried about leaving them( she has autism). Ingrid's love for piggies is amazing and once my daughter had met her and seen the place, she was happy to leave Bubbles and Sparkle. The location is lovely. I will be using Ingrid again. Lovely lady, great location, great holiday for your piggies.

5 From Rebecca Butcher on

Our two guineas enjoyed a lovely day with Ingrid, having had claw clipping, wash, de tangle, cut and dry (spa day). They have been very well looked after and spoilt. Our long haired guinea had rather long hair and alot of matting at the back, she has returned clean, happy and very pretty! Will defiantly be returning with Rosie and Gingernuts.

From Jo on

Just collected our two guinea pigs after a week's stay with Ingrid. We are fairly new to guinea pig ownership, and had dropped them off with long nails, matted hair, and since the adoption of a puppy, very shy through lack of handling. After Ingrid's spa treatment (hair cut, wash, manicure and pedicure), and obvious frequent love and attention, they have returned to us completely different animals. Much more chilled and happy to be handled, as well as cleaner and much more handsome! Here's a photo of them after their spa treatment. I call Ingrid 'the Mad Guinea Pig Lady' because she really is - she's mad about them and it shows with all the emailed updates and enthusiastic way she talks to you about them. Thanks for all the care and advice, Ingrid. Humphrey and Elvis will be back!

Pickle had another pamper day with Ingrid recently. Thoroughly spoilt again! He looks so handsome and smart! Loves his time with Ingrid!!

I have just bought back my two little girl guineas from Andover piggy boarding - they stayed for two nights and had a bath, hair cut and nail clip. Ingrid is a lovely lady who looked after the girls so well - we got regular photos during their stay and nothing was too much trouble! We will definitely be boardig our guineas here again as it is so reasonably priced. I can't recommend enough!

5 From Penny on

I have just collected my four little pigs from Ingrid where, yet again, they have been loved and cared for. After ten days' holiday the three young girls and the 8 year old boar are calm, clean and healthy. Thank you Ingrid.

Chocolate and Dixie are so happy that we found Ingrid. They had a wonderful fortnight at Andover Piggy Boarding - thoroughly pampered (e.g hand-cut grass when the weather was too damp to go out in a run; a vast array of different veges and fruits to tempt any taste buds). Bath and nail- clipping an extra bonus. Ingrid's love and understanding of guinea pigs is apparent and we learnt a lot about our cavies. I couldn't recommend Ingrid and her facilities enough. She is a dab hand at inventing super guinea equipment too! Wish we had found her last year when we first got our guineas. We shall certainly use her again, and think you should too!!

5 From Sam on

Took Pickle (long haired sheltie) for a pampering session as he was in desperate need of a bath and detangling. He had a great time, thoroughly spoilt! He is such a handsome boy now, didn't want to come home!! Will definitely be going back, no more bathing at home! Ingrid gave such care and obviously loves guinea pigs enormously. Would definitely recommend!

5 From Marian Brewer on

A huge thank you to Ingrid for looking after Bertie and Barney for 6 nights. Ingrid is clearly a very knowledgable piggy lover and this put my mind totally at rest when leaving them. She was very accommodating as my piggies have been indoors so she was able to pop them in an indoor cage where they would be cosy. I felt very confirtable leaving them as I knew they would be looked after and that I could trust Ingrid's expertise. She even emailed us an update complete with photographs! Unfortunately I forgot to pack my piggies nuggets but nothing was too much trouble and luckily Ingrid had the same type that I used. An excellent service and the boys are looking forward to their next stay :)

5 From Sarah Rose on

Andover Piggy Boarding is like a second home for little Florence, she has stayed with Ingrid a few times over the last year as well as a couple of weeks over christmas. I would never want take her anywhere else when we go away, she is so well cared for and loved by Ingrid. Ingrid will think of everything to keep your piggy's happy and comfortable during their stay. Thank you so much Ingrid, we are so happy to have found you!

5 From Lou on

We cannot reccommend Ingrid enough, we needed someone to look after Marmite and Honey at the last minute and Ingrid's nothing is too much trouble approach was very refreshing. She clearly loves Guinea Pigs and the care and attention to each animal is second to none. Would definitely use Ingrid again and recommend her to anyone. Thank you and Marmite and Honey look forward to their next visit.

From Dylan and Isla on

Ingrid looked after our guinea over the Christmas period and he was extremely well looked after, think he was disappointed to come home! Will definitely be using Ingrid again as she is very accommodating with all your needs.

5 From Linda Pittendreigh on

Thank you again for looking after Barry and Marmite so well this Christmas. We always know they are in good hands at Andover Piggy Boarding. Ingrid is wonderful at remembering all her customers individual guineas requirements. We will be booking their next stay very soon!

5 From Lucy Thorpe on

Zing and Fluffy checked in for 2 weeks of holiday with Ingrid who is an expert on all things guineas and was very happy to share her knowledge with us. The regular updates with pictures on their stay made my daughter particularly happy. Many thanks Ingrid and see you next year.

5 From Rudolf Ivanka on

Highly recommend the great service Ingrid provides, Cedric had a lovely holiday with her, enjoying VIP treatment! Many thanks.

From Charlotte Foord on

Barry and Marmite enjoyed their second stay with Ingrid this summer hols! They had a lovely week, really enjoyed their cage and fresh run of grass everyday! Both of them had a lovely bath, nail trim and Barry had a super haircut. Thank you Ingrid it is so nice to leave my Piggies with someone who is so passionate about them! We will be back again next holiday!!

From The Thorpe's on

Thank you looking after my daughter's pigs so well. Nothing was too much trouble and it was great that they had the use of a run every day. Highly recommended.

5 From Emma Myszor on

We used Ingrid for the first time with our 2 year old Guinea Dale and would highly recommend her. He was well looked after and fed and it was lovely to receive pictures for the kids to see how he was doing.

5 From Linda Pittendreigh on

I am a 5 year old guinea pig and spent a week with Ingrid. I had a very clean and well prepared hutch with 3 different kinds of hay, my own run on good grass. During my stay I had a shampoo and nails cut and a great choice of food. I was very well looked after and hope I am going back as I would highly recommend it.

5 From Jerry on

I can't recommend Ingrid highly enough. She looked after my family's guinea pig, Nibbles, when we went on holiday, and she was so welcoming and helpful. She took the time to show us the hutch and run he would be staying in, asked us what his favourite foods were, etc. She was even kind enough to e-mail us an update while we were away, which included some lovely photos of Nibbles enjoying himself! Will definitely use Ingrid again :)

5 From Sonia Davis on

As soon as I met Ingrid I knew my guinea pigs would be well cared for while we were away, giving me one less thing to worry about. My 5 male guineas stayed for 18 days, in four hutches - a lot of work. Ingrid was interested in them all as individuals. Ingrid has years of experience, the accommodation is excellent, and the boys had lots of exercise on good grass. I have no hesitation in recommending Ingrid's boarding. Incidentally, the web site is full of good advice given in a witty but no nonsense way.

5 From Catrina on

My 6 guinea pigs stayed with Ingrid for 9 nights, all of which are of different ages and different levels of health. Ingrid was fabulous, keeping in touch with me several times whilst I was on holiday to put my mind at ease! Ingrid is knowledgeable, caring, super friendly and tailored the care my pigs received superbly so that they received home from home treatment. Would recommend and will definitely be back :)

5 From Gemma Brown on

My piggies have just returned from a few days at Andover Piggy Boarding. They were very well looked after, particularly Beanie who was recovering from an operation and in need of some special attention.

5 From Jane Brown on

We just had our three guinea pigs groomed, trimmed and washed by Ingrid. They came back gleaming!! They were so gently handled and cared for and we were made to feel very welcome too! We would definitely consider boarding our guinea pigs there if needed. Thank you Ingrid for all your expert advice and tips too.

5 From Maggie Broadberry on

My four guinea pigs have just had another holiday with Ingrid. As always, when I collected them they were clean, healthy and happy. I feel totally confident leaving them in her care.

5 From Sarah Hobley on

Thank you so much for looking after our guinea pigs, especially at such short notice. Care, attention and expertise couldn't be better - we'll definitely be back. Totally recommended fabulous!

5 From Tony Shaw and family on

Thank you very much for looking after our guinea pigs and gerbil Fantastic service!! Will definitely use again and recommend to any one looking to board guinea pigs!

5 From Ryan & Cerianne on

I have known Ingrid for many years. She has a genuine love for all animals, and I know that when my guineas holiday at hers there is no doubt in my mind that they are in the best place. She treats my guineas as her own. They are fed, cleaned, and regularly observed and cuddled. They always come back looking happy and refreshed after their break. Nothing is ever too much trouble, and Ingrid is always happy to advise and help when required, as she is very experienced. I highly recommend her, and can assure you that your guineas will have a very happy time and will be in safe hands at Andover Piggy boarding.

5 From Louise Davies on

My guinea pigs have holidayed here for the past 14 years. I have remained confident that they will be clean, fed, watered and regularly observed. When I collect them they are as calm and healthy as when they arrived. The owner is an experienced, honest and caring pet handler - a rare find.

5 From Sarah Hobley on

Having a piggy who was picked on by others, Alfie now has a very happy life here! Friendly staff, who know how to care for your pet! Highly recommended!
