I have over 40 years experience of keeping rabbits, guinea pigs and all other small rodents, as well as small caged birds such as cockatiels, budgies, canaries and finches. At present I own many of the above animals and birds and because of my great affection for these little creatures I set up Beaks and Squeaks for boarding other peoples furry and feathered friends while they are away from home. I also take in small rodents for rehoming (see main website for more details)
Guinea pigs are kept in medium sized cages in a well ventilated lodge style summerhouse, a small hutch is also available. All other rodents and birds are kept indoors.
Guinea pigs will be exercised daily when weather permits in large runs on a lawn with lots of tubes and tunnels and igloos to hide in!!

Reviews from Our Guests
We are so glad to have found such an ideal board for our two Lovebirds. We knew from the moment we walked in they would be content and very well cared for and we weren't disappointed. If you are looking for somewhere for your small pet to stay, do try Beaks and Squeaks - we really do recommend the expertise and genuine care that is shown for their boarders. Thank you.

Our 3 female guinea pigs spent a fortnight at Beaks and Squeaks in the summer last year and a few days over Christmas. Melanie was very friendly and reassuring, making sure they were in a suitably sized hutch similar to that they are used to. They were well fed and exercised, with very reasonable boarding rates. Melanie was very helpful with accommodating their usual diet of only fruit and veg and even asked what they usually ate so she could buy these. Extremely nice lady who is very flexible and clearly cares for the animals she boards. Would definitely recommend Beaks and Squeaks, we have felt we can go away knowing our pets are well looked after. 10/10, highly recommended.

Hi Melanie, A huge thank you for looking after our three piggies Amy, Roxy and CoCo. I was very impressed by the set up you have and the lovely clean living conditions our girls were in. I would not hesitate in coming back to beaks&squeaks and always recommend your pet services to anyone in the future.
