Hello and welcome, my name is Sharon Rose Goulty. I love all aspects of rabbit care from playing to cleaning them out ! I adore their charming, and naughty ways and how they wrap us around their furry little paws. I have had many years experience with rabbits...but always learning!
NOW TAKING GUEST GUINEA PIGS ... these funny little furries like being in the same environment as the bunnies, and there is plenty of grass for them too !
I have owned TORTOISES and a close relative still does, so please contact me regarding of the care of these delightful creatures...prices from £3 a night.
My charity of 2016 was the RSPCA who do such an amazing service to stand up for the rights of all animals, including our wonderful companions, the bunnies! ... UPDATE... THANK YOU EVERYONE who personally donated or paid me extra for their bunny holidays. With your donation and mine, we raised £235.00 ... FABULOUS !
My charity of 2017 was the `MARGARET GREEN ANIMAL RESCUE`. Surrounded by fields and is very near Corfe Castle in Dorset, this stunning rescue takes in pets that have become homeless due to a change of circumstances or that have been neglected, mistreated or abandoned. Finding forever homes is at the heart of what they do. So if you`re looking for another bunny or guinea, why not visit this rescue, and have a lovely day out in Dorset too :) ...UPDATE... through your generous tips and a fundraising Tea Party, we raised £152.25! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH !!!
My charity of 2018 is the SWINDON RABBIT RESCUE... adopt a bunny from this recently opened rescue, run by a wonderful team of dedicated ladies. ALSO, for a small donation, you will be entered into a prize draw to win one week FREE boarding for your pets and a selection of wine... and chocolates for all the family ! ...UPDATE...£158.50 has been donated! YOU ARE AMAZING PEOPLE, THANK YOU !!!
My large and serene enclosed garden has a secure shed with three indoor hutches that lead into outdoor grass runs. Purpose built enclosures that are like a natural habitat for your rabbit. They can even burrow securely if they want to ! This accommodation is particularly suited to the large or giant bunny breeds.
I also have two large and one smaller chalet style hutches with enclosed and covered runs. In two other secure sheds are more hutches, should your bunny require a more snug environment, and where all guest bunnies and guinea pigs are tucked up in bed at night. I also have many runs on the grass in the main garden for daytime exercise.
I have often found that a change of surroundings for bunnies does not faze them, in fact, according to their owners it either gives them a new lease of life or chills them out...a change is as good as a rest I suppose!
My aim is to make your furry family feel safe and happy and for you to relax in the knowledge that your pet is being very well cared for, physically and emotionally.
There are always at least two adults on the premises at all times to keep a watch on your precious pets.
If required, I can send updates and photos of your pets... reassuring for you, and fun for me !
Unfortunately, I am now unable to accommodate indoor bunnies and guinea pigs but my sheds are warm and toasty and completely secure. I wouldn`t keep my own darling rabbits in anything that wasn`t acceptable ... and that goes for my guests too!
Health & Hygiene:
DAILY fresh bedding, dried and fresh food, and of course water, is provided.
Some very furry rabbits require brushing and I am happy to do so. Also bunny bottoms are checked and if some need cleaning, this is INCLUDED in the price. If your pet requires medication or application of creams, I am happy to do this, free of charge. If claws need clipping and bunny is `agreeable`, then this is also included in the price. NO HIDDEN EXTRAS.
Small Pet Boarding Prices
£5.00 a night per rabbit and £2.50 extra for a second bunny in a shared hutch (£7.50).
For rabbits with a serious pre-existing medical condition, elderly bunny or those who require palliative care, please contact me to discuss requirements and prices.
£5.00 a night per guinea pig and £2.50 extra for a second piggy in a shared hutch (£7.50). If three to four guinea pigs are sharing, the price will be £10.00 per night.
Sharon looked after our rabbit wonderfully. She adored her and loves rabbits! Lola came home very happy. I would be fully confident leaving Lola with her again. Thank you so much Sharon
From Katherine on
Thank you Sharon for yet another lovely holiday for our rabbit. We are always confident that sheâ€™ll have a super time with you whilst weâ€™re away. Our son loved receiving the photo of her playing too.
From Mel Green on
We have just collected our indoor rabbit from Sharon at Rustic Rabbit Retreat, he stayed for one week. I cannot fault the care and attention that he has received and would highly recommend if you are looking for a 'holiday home' for your rabbit. Sharon sent us photo's while we were away which was really nice. We have only left our rabbit Trevor once before so we were quite apprehensive, but from the first moment we took him in, he seemed to sense it was safe and started exploring straight away. Please do go and visit, Sharon is lovely. Also, I think the price is extremely reasonable.
From Yvonne Yandell on
Oreo and Fudge had a lovely mini break with Sharon at the rustic retreat. I felt very happy to leave our bunnies with her for their first time away from us. Sharon is completely set up with everything a bunny needs. It is a bunny 5* accommodation and we will definitely be returning.
From Rachael on
Our house rabbit Betty had an amazing week at the Rustic Rabbit Retreat - so much so weâ€™re not sure she wanted to come home. Weâ€™ll definitely be using the service again on or next holiday. It was lovely to know she was in such good hands, and the photo update was a nice touch to stop us worrying. Thank you!
From Kate Cullen on
Thanks so much for looking after Leo our lion head. We were able to enjoy our holiday knowing that our rabbit was being well looked after. Food was included in the price which made it extra special.
From Jane Stewart on
Thank you so much for looking after Oscar and Bonnie. It was so reassuring to know that they were being well looked after by someone who genuinely likes and understands rabbits. It was great to receive some updates and photos while I was away. Oscar and Bonnie are already looking forward to their next holiday with you xx
From Amelia on
My 6 year old rabbit Bob started staying here this year I was worried about leaving him as he lost his soul mate earlier in the year but with Sharon looking after him the only thing I worried about was would he want to come home. The environment is stunning and so natural and in keeping with a bunnys natural habitat. Already booked our next holiday would recommend to anyone looking for a home from home retreat. Thanks for the loving care you show to all the animals in your care
From Debbie on
Rustic Rabbit Retreat is really amazing!! It really is a Retreat!! We took our little Guinea Pig, Nibbles there for the summer. We were away for four weeks! Sharon was amazing. She has such a beautiful set up and garden and it was so homely! Nibbles loved it. Sharon even sent us photos every so often of how he was getting on. Would highly recommend and we will returning. Thank you so much Sharon xxx
From Chloe George on
I can't recommend Sharon enough after looking after our bunny Bella for 3 weeks! Her garden is an amazing environment for rabbits with lots of shade which was important during the hot weather & tunnels for each of the 'resident guests' to play in. We received photos after a couple of days showing Bella had settled in which allowed us to enjoy our holiday knowing she was being well cared for which was also clear from her healthy looking shiny coat & bright eyes when we collected her. We would definitely go to Sharon again (Bella agrees!) & thoroughly recommend her to anyone else looking for a lovely caring person & beautiful environment for their pet rabbit.
From Denise Kerley on
My 2 guinea pigs recently enjoyed a holiday at Rustic Rabbit Retreat. Sharon is lovely & obviously cares so much about the animals & the garden set-up is perfect. I also received photos of the guinea pigs during the holiday. It was so nice to go away & have no worries about them being cared for. Thank you!
From Sheryl on
We have boarded our rabbit with RRR twice now. RRR really look after its boarders. We even received an update during our holiday. Cannot recommend highly enough.
From Alison Mayfield on
Our rabbit has stayed with Sharon on several occasions and has been extremely well looked after. On a recent visit he was a bit under the weather and Sharon went that extra mile to make sure he was cared for and soon feeling better. Thank you Sharon.
From Carol williams on
This was Moon's first holiday away from home and I'm pretty sure he didn't want to come back with me after! Sharon is absolutely lovely and provides the highest level of care for her furry guests. She was also incredibly flexible with arranging dates and times, making it a stress-free process. Her garden is a bunny palace, equipped with everything a bunny could possibly need. I absolutely could not recommend her enough, and will definitely be booking again next time. Thank you so much :)
From Gemma on
Buster had such a lovely time with Sharon! Felt so happy knowing he was in such a loving environment. Thank you so much, would definitely recommend :)
From Tami on
Peter went in to board at Sharons for the first time...
He had a very happy stay, in fact I don't think he wanted to come home!
Sharon is very lovely and friendly, it was all very easy and her garden is so lovely and interesting, great for inquisitive bunnies. She was also very flexible with pick up as we were travelling back from Glasgow and couldn't get there until 7pm. I will be booking again for the summer, if she can fit Peter in....
From Rachael on
Our rabbit Morty has stayed at the Rustic Rabbit Retreat twice so far and I would not hesitate to take my rabbit back to stay there in future! Sharon (the owner) is so welcoming and makes you feel completely at ease knowing your rabbit is in very safe hands! Beautiful garden for the rabbits to run around in and they get locked away safely at night in their hutches in a sheltered area away from any predators. I feel very lucky to have found this retreat and within easy distance from my home. Sharon is very flexible with drop off times and always has Morty ready to go upon collection. I could not recommend this place highly enough! Just fantastic! Big thank you to Sharon!
From Debbie on
My three guinea pigs thoroughly enjoyed their stay with Sharon - she is a lovely lady who obviously cares for, and about animals. They came back home happy and relaxed. Can highly recommend Sharon and will certainly be using her facilities again in the summer.
From Joanna on
My rabbit can be a bit of a pampered princess and Sharon listened to all of my ramblings and looked after him so well.
She sent me pictures of him, to show me how he was doing. Thank you for taking such good care of him!
From Elizabeth on
Hugo, our elderly rabbit, spent 9 days being thoroughly spoiled and extremely well looked after by Sharon who is obviously a dedicated rabbit lover! Working in a veterinary practice myself I can most assuredly recommend Rustic Rabbit Retreat without hesitation! Thanks again Sharon - Hugo is missing all his new found friends!
From J. Scott on
Our 4 Guinea Pigs had a lovely holiday with Sharon. They came back very happy and relaxed. Sharon is very welcoming and has a great environment for guinea pigs and rabbits. I would highly recommend Sharon to anyone. Our Guinea pigs are already looking forward to their next holiday there. It's really nice to be able to leave them with Sharon and not have to be worried about them knowing that they will be really well looked after. Thank you!
From Sue on
Would highly recommend Sharon and her lovely rabbit retreat!Sharon invited us to come round and see where they would be staying and we were very impressed. Sharon was so kind and even sent us pictures! Ripper and zipper will be back next year. Thanks again
From Laura on
My 2 bunny children Easter and Cookie have just got back from their 24 day stay at the Rustic Rabbit Retreat and I don't think they could have had a better stay. They looked so happy with Sharon and they were so well looked after, she sent me pictures during our holiday of them with her and put our minds at ease. You can tell every rabbit with her is so content and really well looked after. I was very hesitant about putting my rabbits in boarding and im very fussy about who looks after them (I won't even let family look after them) and I can hand on heart say I recommend Sharon and the rustic rabbit retreat to everybody and anybody looking for somewhere for their rabbits or Guinea pigs to stay. She is such a lovely and caring lady and so clearly loves what she does I was able to not worry about them in the slightest while we were away. My male rabbit hates being picked up and she has even tamed him to be a lap rabbit I'm amazed! I dont think they even wanted to come home they had such a good time! Would recommend 100 percent! 5 star!!
From Thea on
Brambles spent 12 nights at Rustic Retreat. He had a lovely time. We were sent pictures of his experience and that was a lovely peace of mind. Highly recommend this holiday retreat!
From Karen on
Teddy spent 10 days at this wonderful retreat and he has had a fantastic time such a friendly environment and really made us feel at ease leaving teddy we will definately leave teddy here again xxx many thanks ðŸ°ðŸ˜Š
From Lisa on
Thank you Sharon and family for your excellent care of my bunnies Beanie and Brambles they enjoyed their holiday with you as we did ours, and thank you for the lovely photos you sent me mid week. You are a very special lady with a love of animals.
From Rebecca Smith on
What a fantastic recommendation. Rustic Rabbit Retreat was perfect for our guinea pigs Fluffy and Skip. They had a lovely holiday and we had piece of mind whilst we were away. Nothing too much trouble for Sharon and her family, would highly recommend.
From Nicola on
Last weekend my precious bunny Olive stayed with Sharon at the Rustic Rabbit Retreat. I have never used any form of rabbit boarding before so was a little apprehensive. It turns out there was absolutely no need to be. Once I met Sharon and saw where Olive would be living for four days I immediately felt happy and confident. I have absolutely no doubt that Olive enjoyed her stay, and Sharon is clearly the best person to leave my bunny with. I will DEFINITELY be using the Rustic Rabbit Retreat again! Thank you so much!! :)
From Carly on
We'd like to thank Sharon for taking care of our Sweety. It was his third holiday at Rustic Rabbit Retreat and each time he comes back very happy and rested. Every time he sees his carrier now, he's happy and looking forward to his little holiday. We can truly enjoy our holiday knowing that our bunny is in such good and caring hands. If you're looking for people that you can trust with your bunny, we really recommend the Rustic Rabbit Retreat.
From Ralph on
Fudge really enjoyed his holiday at rustic rabbit retreat, cannot recommend this lovely lady highly enough... Many thanks for looking after our bunny so well, even taking the time to show our little boy where fudge would be staying. Just lovely x
From Sarah on
Snowflake and opal stayed with Sharon.
Amazing place would highly use it again!
From Thomas Monteith on
Thank you Sharon for looking after Cedric and Crumble again. Having peace of mind whilst we go away is lovely and the bunnies were so chilled out and relaxed upon their return home today. I'm sure they will be visiting again soon.
From Sarah Alvis on
I cannot tell you how happy I was to find this wonderful rabbit retreat. Sharon and her family made me feel so comfortable about leaving Waltzer for his first ever holiday. The rabbit holiday retreat is SO well set up, lots of different homes for outdoor and indoor rabbits. Sharon kept me up to date while I was away, sending me photos and an update on how he was settling in. That was special and made me feel relaxed about him being away from me and his home. I cannot thank Sharon enough for making Waltzer feel 'at home' . I recommend this place to ANYONE looking for a holiday retreat for their bunny, look no further, you won't be disappointed and more importantly, your bunny won't be either - thank you Sharon. Anytime I'm away I know where Waltzer will be from now on.........The Rustic Rabbit Retreat
From Susan & Waltzer on
Our bunny has just returned from another stay with Sharon, as always he has been looked after with care and love. He will be visiting again in 2017.
From Carol williams on
My Rabbit Jake is a quiet gentle boy, loves company but is not very bold at all. As soon as I visited Sharon at her lodgings I felt calm and confident in leaving Jake with her whilst I went on holiday for a week. I've only ever left him with my parents so was very nervous before meeting Sharon. She genuinely adores all her guests and the lodgings are tranquil and such a nice place for the Buns to stay. When I arrived to pick Jake up he was laid snoozing, unaware I was there and it was clear he was so so comfortable. He didn't struggle when Sharon picked him up to return to me, which I have never seen! He always objects a little as his feet definitely belong on the ground! But with Sharon he didn't mind one bit! It is so nice to know that there is now somewhere safe to leave Jake if I need and genuinely know he will be happy. It's very hard to find and I have complete faith and trust in Sharon, her manner and lodgings are lovely.
From Erin on
I am so pleased I was put in touch with Sharon at Rustic Rabbit Retreat, I couldn't recommend her highly enough. I can leave our 8 year old rabbit Casper knowing he will have the best care and attention in what is an outstanding set up. Thank you Sharon
From Vanessa on
I left my 2 bunnies at RRR for the first time and they loved it. They were looked after very well and I would'nt hesitate to leave them there again. Thanks very much Sharon.
From Terry on
My bunnies had a great time. Sharon is so lovely and you felt happy that she would look after them like her own. It's an amazing set up in the garden and she will email you update and photos of your pet whilst your away. Will never go anywhere else, it's a real home from home
From Michelle Dix on
I left my two girls with Sharon at the beginning of October for just under a week. I had never left them with a bunny hotel before so had no idea what to expect but straight away felt at ease with Sharon and her amazing set up. Before my girls went to stay I was able to meet Sharon and her rabbits and look at where the girls were going to be staying.
My girls are indoor rabbits overall but Sharon was able to accommodate them both and was able to house both my girls separately and was able to care for their individual needs, she even sent me photo updates via email so I was reassured that they were ok.
I highly recommend Sharon and Rustic Rabbit Retreat, it is so clear that Sharon, as well as having a lot of knowledge, really loves all bunnies in all shapes and sizes.
My girls can't wait to visit again at Easter! I've attached a photo of my girls enjoying their stay.
Thanks so much Sharon!
From Carol Wootton on
In August, we happily left our 2 male rabbits - Buttons & Wispa- in the fantastic care of Sharon for 16 days. Having only had the rabbits for a year, this was our first experience of using a Rabbit Retreat. She accommodated the rabbits separately and took on board their different personalities. Her care, devotion & kindness to all the rabbits, was undeniable. Her garden, runs & cages are a rabbits delight!! I would whole heartedly recommend Sharon & will definitely be booking with her again. Thank you so much from us all. Karen
From Karen Mander on
Our mini lop Chester has been to stay with Sharon twice now. Its is very reassuring knowing that whilst we are away he is being cared for by someone who is caring and passionate about rabbits. Chester recently broke his leg and had to have it pinned back into place whilst the bone healed. Sharon was great looking after and caring for him and sent us updates on how he was doing. You couldn't ask for a better service and Chester returned from the retreat a happy bunny who now has a fixed leg.
From Katherine on
I left my elderly rabbit here for 10 days, it was a weight off my mind. It is a perfect environment and they truly love rabbits, its more than just a business. While Fluff stayed they successfully diagnosed and treated a mite she had which I hadn't recognised. Hopefully Fluff will still be around to stay there next year.
From Lisa Thomason on
We are so pleased we found this place! Sharon is a wonderful lady who clearly loves and cares for rabbits very much! We felt so happy knowing they were staying with someone do knowledgeable and passionate about our little bunnies! She sent us an update with pictures and we couldn't have asked for a better service! Thoroughly recommend this place!
From Gemma Dawson on
Thank you so much for looking after Peppa (rabbit) and Crumble (hamster) they both loved their stay and are looking forward to returning! We cannot recommend you highly enough, if anyone wants someone to take care of their pets, they should look no further than you. Thank you.
From Helen & Steve on
Thank you Sharon for looking after our 2 guinea pigs these last 10 days. They looked so settled when we collected them. We really appreciate it.
From Lilly Webb on
Thank you so much Sharon for my three bunnies (Poppy Lucky and Charley's little holiday with you. They must of enjoyed it as very relaxed when we collected them and seemed very happy. It's so reassuring knowing our bunnies will be in good hands whilst we on our hols too as well as the bunnies at rustic rabbit retreat.
Very happy and will definitely use again. Thank you again ðŸ‡ðŸ°ðŸ˜€
From Lorna on
What a wonderful place for a rabbit to have a holiday! We left our much loved bunny, who had recently lost his life partner and was in a bit of a fragile state, with Sharon for two weeks. He received lots of cuddles and attention, and the other free roaming rabbits provided some welcome rabbit company for him. He has come home a relaxed and happier bunny. Thank you Sharon, for looking after Jessie so well. You have a wonderful facility there, and your love of rabbits is something special.
From Capps Family on
Thank u so much Sharon for letting ronda and Ronnie come stay at yr fabulous retreat.they both had a lovely time with u and yr other furry friends!will definitely be using u againðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€x
From Ali brett on
Buttercup and Luna have enjoyed another wonderful stay at RRR and again report being fantastically cared for and treated as well as Sharon's 'resident' bunnies. Thank you!
From Ellen on
Gin & Tonic loved their stay at RRR. It's such a great set up. Sharon is such a lovely lady and she adores rabbits so you know they will be well looked after on their stay. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for somewhere for your rabbits to go 'on holiday'. Thanks again Sharon x
From Deborah on
My 2 guinea pigs recently stayed at rustic rabbit retreat. It's a beautiful garden well laid out for the rabbits and guinea pigs. Mine were looked after very well by Sharon who was very caring and had a genuine feeling for the little creatures. I would thoroughly recommend Rustic rabbit for your rabbits and guinea pigs when you want somewhere safe and caring for them whilst you are away.
From kate on
I left my 2 bunnies with RRR and they were well cared for. Would use again and would recommend to others. Very welcoming on arrival and collection. Thank you
From Pamela on
Our little bunny stayed at the Rustic Rabbit Retreat, and clearly loved his stay! He was in beautiful and safe surroundings, and was looked after by safe and caring hands. I think he particularly enjoyed seeing all the other rabbits lopping around too.
As this was his first time away (and he is quite young) it was really reassuring to know that he was being so well cared for.
We will definitely be using the Rustic Rabbit Retreat again soon - a great set-up and a fantastic owner :)
Thank you :)
From Miriam on
Would definitely recommend RRR. I don't think you'll anyone who loves rabbits as much as Sharon does! Poppy had a lovely time over easter - even though she did break poor Bernie's heart. Will definitely use again. Thanks Sharon, you're a star!!
From Kate on
Qin loved his stay with rustic rabbit retreat and came back a relaxed and happy bunny. Sharon has been great with him and even had him all ready to go which can be a struggle as he always throws a strop when he sees the carry cage. Thank you so much and i would definatly recommend rustic rabbit retreat and im sure Qin's looking forward to another holiday. Thanks karin
From Karin on
Another lovely holiday for Buttercup and Luna at RRR. They've been fantastically looked after by Sharon yet again giving you peace of mind whilst away from home. Thank you Sharon! X
From Ellen on
Rustic Rabbit Retreat was absolutely fantastic and my two rabbits came back totally relaxed. Sharon is a very friendly, warm person and you can tell within minutes of meeting her that she adores rabbits and they will be well looked after. The runs and hutches are well set out and she sends photos and an update on how they are, which puts your mind at ease.
Great service, I have already booked their next stay.
From Sophie on
My bunny had a fantastic holiday at RRR. She's was looked after perfectly and came back relaxed and cared for. The email update was so personal and was a lovely touch, pictures and everything! Would not hesitate in coming back. Made our holiday more relaxing knowing that our rabbit was in safe hands
From Laura Cowper on
Our bunny was very well looked after and spoilt, in a good way, when he stayed at the rabbit retreat last week.
From Williams on
I would highly recommend RRR! My rabbit had a lengthy stay with Sharon and he couldn't have been looked after better. She put my mind at ease with regular updates and photos and treated him like a family member over xmas and new year. I will be bringing him back soon!
From Bev on
Slightly reluctant to leaving another glowing report as would hate not to be able to get a hutch next time we are away! We couldn't have been happier with the care Biscuit had, he was calm and content on returning home too.
From Nick Gresham on
We were delighted by our rabbits' experience. Sharon is very professional, caring and a pleasure to meet. We will definitely be using Rustic retreat again.
From Lara payne on
Thank you so much for looking after Snoopy and Leo. Your garden is a rabbits haven. We would definitely be happy to leave Snoopy and Leo with you again.
From Samantha on
I left my two ladies with Sharon over the Christmas period and they couldn't have been in better hands. They were extremely contented and I would certainly recommend Sharon to anyone. Thank you so much x
From Heidi on
My bunnies stayed here for a long weekend over Hallowe'en and I could not be happier. I've had awful experiences leaving previous pets with friends / family so it was so reassuring to find someone who actually loves and cares about rabbits. I was 100% comfortable leaving my babies in Sharon's care and would use the service again in a heartbeat. Could not recommend highly enough! Thank you!
From Fiona Bush on
Rustic Rabbit Retreat is fantastic and absolutely recommended for leaving your bunnies here for a holiday! Buttercup and Luna made to feel exceptionally welcome, fantastic accommodation to suit all rabbit requirements. I'm not sure my girls wanted to leave! ðŸ˜Š
Will be leaving them with Sharon again without a doubt. Total peace of mind that she will care for my bunnies as well as I would.
From Ellen on
Rosie loved her few weeks at Rustic Rabbit Retreat, came home calm and well. My grandson loved the garden, hutches and rabbits, it's a great find and I'm sure we'll be coming back next year.
From Charlotte Moore on
I was so impressed by Sharon's set up - she has an amazing garden with a range of rabbit enclosures (inside and out) to meet your rabbits need. The outdoor enclosures have ready made tunnels and lots things for enrichment and I know that he got a lot of fuss also and enjoyed the company of resident rabbits (through the bars). Her garden is like a bunny heaven and she is a lovely lady and I felt totally at ease at leaving Rollo with her. Highly recommended!
From Mimi on
We left our 2 female bunnies here for the bank holiday weekend and they couldn't have been in better hands. Sharon has many different hutch options for the rabbits depending on what suits them best - we opted for an indoor hutch with access to a cordoned off garden area with ready made burrows! Our rabbits are house rabbits so we were concerned at how they would take to it but as soon as they were introduced to their area they ran off and couldn't care less! When we returned they were both very relaxed and ready in their carry case, knackered out after a fun weekend and just wanting a snooze. Very happy with the service and the price is brilliant. will definitely use again.
