About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea Pigs

My name is Emma and have worked with animals for many years.
I am qualified animal carer (BTEC National diploma in animal care), with over 18 years experience and a love of animals.
I have previous experience working as a veterinary nurse so can administer any medication that your pets may require and can liase with your vet. I have also been veterinary approved.


Housed in our safe and secure stable block in large spacious cages.
Cages can be 4ft upto 12ft long for small or large groups of animals. I also have available large spacious outdoor pens housed within a secure area.
Fresh hay from our farm daily.
Floor pens also available which my lodgers really enjoy exploring and playing in.
Toys, tunnels, houses and chew blocks provided to keep them busy and active all day long.


During the summer months my little lodgers get to go in my large outdoor runs and are brought back into the stables each night.
I also have an array of tunnels, toys and boxes to keep your little lodgers oocupied. If your rabbits a digger they can also go outside as I have a large fenced in hard surface area so they can still enjoy the lovely fresh air and sunshine.

Health & Hygiene:

All animals are checked daily. Medication can be given as I have previous experience as a veterinary nurse.
All hutches are totally disinfected when the little lodgers check out with Trigene.
Rabbits should have been vaccinated against Myxomatosis and VHD (Viral Haemorrhagic disease).
Your pet will not mix with any other animals whilst in our care, except for their own cage mate.

Our 2 Guinea Pigs have just spent 2 weeks with Emma. They have been very well cared for at their country retreat! Emma's setup is really well organised and caring. We had no worries leaving our piggies there and would recommend it to others wishing a trouble free holiday for their pets. We will be back next year, best wishes, Lucky and Stella.

Our family guinea pig Harry goes on holiday to Welby Lodge-ings several times during the year & has been going to see Emma & her family for the last 3/4 years now. He loves his holiday just as much as we do ours, he receives the best of care everytime. The hutches & runs are like 5 star accommodation!! Thank you Emma - see you again soon x

Thanks again to Emma for taking care of our bunnies so well whilst we were away on holiday. The rabbits thoroughly enjoyed their indoor-to-outdoor pen and super large play area with tunnels, things to climb on and into. This is the third year that Stig and Adele have visited and they always come back looking sleek and healthy.

Just picked my three bunnies up from Emma. They all looked happy and content and loved the freshly cut hay off the farm. Thankyou so much for looking after us so well, love Dill,Casper and Winnie x

Our two rabbits and hamster lodged here for 3 weeks last summer. Fabulous facilities. I feel as though they are being pampered even more than they are at home. This is the key to guilt-free holidays - I don't have to worry about their welfare. Thaey are coming back for 2 weeks this year. Thoroughly recommended!

We have just picked Bunz up after her holidays with Emma. I was really impressed with all the facilities available and the small touches such as her own photo on her hutch and txt msge service. Bunz is a house bunny and she loved the welcoming spacious hutch and play areas - a real home from home! I would highly recommend Emma and Welby Lodge-ings for a fab service and peace of mind whilst on holiday.

My rabbit Fudge loves his holiday with Emma. He has stayed 3 times now. It is a real home from home for him. I would recommend Welby Lodge-ings to anybody. It is a fantastic place and we always know that Fudge is well cared for. Katrina.

Our chinchillas, Megan & Henry, have holidayed at Welby Lodge-ings on several occasions now. Chinchillas are classed as exotics and as such need specialist care; added to this, Megan needs daily medication to control fitting. Emma has taken all their needs on board and during their time with her, they are treated like royalty. She keeps in touch with us by text, so we know all is well. We can now go away and relax, safe in the knowledge that our mischief makers are being well cared for. Thank you Emma for the excellent service you provide......Megan & Henry are looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Our two bunnies Belle and Ruby have just spent 3 weeks with Emma at Welby Lodge-ings. They have been wonderfully looked after with lots of love and care. Emma ensured that they had lots of exercise out of their hutch and really went out of her way to give a home from home. We would highly recommend Emma and will be using Welby again.
