About our Guinea Pig Boarding

Hello, my name is Jemma. My passion is my pets and always has been, I have 14 resident guinea pigs, a Cocker spaniel and 2 ponies! I have lots of experience with a wide range of animals, I have worked in veterinary hospitals, farms and pet shops. I have a HNC qualification in Animal Care and am now studying for a degree in Animal Science.


I like providing spacious accommodation for the guests to run around and feel safe. I like to replicate their environment as close as possible to what they have at home.

We welcome both indoor and outdoor piggies from April to October. We cannot take indoor piggies during the colder months unfortunately.


Spacious enclosures are provided to allow animals to exercise appropriately.

All cages and hutches are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected in between each visitor.

Boarding pets are kept separate from my own

Our piggies were looked after so well!! So happy I found this amazing place. A 5 star Guinea Pig Hotel.

5 From Angela on

Guinea Shed was extremely accommodating with a long term stay with an unsure end date. We could tell when we arrived the love for their own pigs and felt very secure that our 2 boys would be comfortable and well looked after. Our circumstances changed half way through and we needed to give up our boys. They were very helpful in finding them a new home which I greatly appreciate. Would recommend!

5 From Mark on

We had our long haired Guinea pig (Pearl) groomed at The Guinea Shed and we were delighted at how helpful & knowledgable Jemma was. Pearl came home looking great! We highly recommend Jemma to all Guinea pig owners 👏🏻👏🏻

5 From Keith & Jayne on

The Guinea Shed is the cavy equivalent of a five star boutique hotel. It's a perfect home-from-home for my beloved little piggies and I'd recommend Jemma wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a perfect place to board their piggies.

5 From Debi Gliori on

I would totally recommend The Guinea Shed. Such a great set up for the guinea pigs and I had no problem leaving my pets with Jemma who is amazing with the animals. I've already booked my 2 guinea pigs in for future holidays this year so I know that they will be well looked after!!

Friendly service, good communication, clearly cares about the animals

First time of leaving our three guinea pigs with Jemma. Cannot fault her set up and care. We received some lovely pics and updates throughout their stay. We were able to relax. Good price for the service. Recommended 👌

5 From Joanne Dutton on

Really happy to have found such a nice place for our guinea pigs to stay while we were away. They seemed to have a great time; we'll definitely use the Guinea Shed again.

5 From Effie on

I'm so happy to have found out about the Guinea Shed! Jemma looked after my 3 senior girls while I went away for a long weekend and it put my mind at ease to know they were being so well looked after. My girls also require twice daily doses of painkillers - this was no problem for Jemma thankfully. Will definitely be booking them in again whenever I go on holiday from now on!

5 From Erin Shepherd on

Felt very happy leaving my pets to be looked after at the Guinea Shed. Clearly someone who loves animals and knows how to care for them. The guinea pigs didn't want to come home!

Couldn't be happier with Jemma's cat sitting service! My two kitties were not just in good hands while I was away but Jemma also kept me in the loop with photos and messages. Would 100% recommend!

5 From Lucie on

Super impressed with Jemma and her set up at home. My piggie was taken excellent care of and it was really nice of Jemma to send pictures and keep me updated throughout her stay. I would 100% recommend The Guinea Pig Shed :)

5 From Jo on

I was so happy to leave my precious piggies with Jemma. Sid and Stan are real drama queens and they just waddled off ignoring us 🤣 place is spotless and I felt so at ease knowing they would be safe, well fed and pampered. I would have no hesitation leaving them there again and can't recommend the Guinea Shed enough. Thanks Jemma xx

5 From Poppy malone on

Our guinea pigs were very well taken care off and returned home happy and healthy. Jemma also sent pictures and video regularly so I didn't have to worry or miss my piggies too much. Very good communication throughout as well.

5 From Mirka on

5 star service received from Jemma. The piggies were well looked after & treated as if they were her own. I received regular updates & photos & I could relax knowing that the piggies were in safe hands. Highly recommend, thank you Jemma ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

5 From Karen Murdoch on

Our piggies received 5 star service from Jemma. Would highly recommend her to anyone wishing their guinea pigs looked after. Jemma has a great set up and is a lovely person who went above and beyond. (She sent updates and photos which we really appreciated.)

5 From Lynn MacLeod on

So impressed with Jemma and the excellent care she gave our two guinea pigs. Our pigs loved their stay at the Guinea Pig Shed, their accommodation was clean and spacious and they even got to play on the lawn. We loved the photos Jemma sent throughout their stay and the advice she gave us was really helpful. I would definitely recommend the Guinea Pig Shed.

5 From Jess on

Our two guinea pigs have just had the best 2 weeks at The Guinea Shed. Jemma looked after them so well. She took care to understand their habits, likes and dislikes before they went to stay with her. She sent us regular updates with photos while they were with her and so we felt very reassured. They are going to stay again in a couple of weeks. I would thoroughly recommend Jemma and The Guinea Shed.

5 From Milda Zinkus on

Jemima is a lovely girl , very helpful and informative. She took great care of our Guinea pigs. Wouldn't hesitate to use again and would definitely recommend .

5 From Gail Ferry on

I would definitely recommend Jemma and The Guinea Shed. It is obvious that Jemma has a genuine love for guinea pigs and I felt confident that our two were really well looked after. The accommodation was clean and spacious. Jemma was warm and friendly and lovely with my children too.

5 From Jane marsh on

Jemma came to my home to do pop in visits for my 4 rabbits while I was away. She sent me daily pictures and videos and reassured me that they were all doing well, which meant I could relax knowing they were being well looked after. She managed to get some lovely photos and I could tell she has taken time to sit with and bond with each animal. I would 100% recommended Jemma and would ask her to look after my fluffle of rabbits anytime.

5 From Sammy on

Our guinea pigs couldn't come home happier or healthier after their stays at The Guinea Shed. Jemma is experienced, knowledgeable and loves her guinea pigs. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

5 From Diana on

I definitely recommend Jemma! I had to away for a while and Jemma was very friendly and helpful. It was really convenient that my piggies were picked up and the delivered back to me on my arrival since I live in Edinburgh and I couldn't leave home due to quarantine. Jemma also sent me loads of pictures regularly and my piggies were happy living in a lovely place while I was away. Thanks so much !
