Hello and welcome to Larkfield Small Animal Hotel. Specialising in rabbits, guinea pigs and all other, small animals holiday boarding needs.
Over 30 years of pet care experience. BRC Breeder, RWAF member. Qualified pet care therapist and currently taking a Batchelors degree in Advanced Animal behaviour, specialising in lagamorphs (rabbits).
Animals are my passion and love. I currently own a rabbitry of over 50, show standard mini lops, of my own and rescue animals on top. Plus rescue horses too. As you can tell its become a way of life for me.
As of January 2016 I am proud to announce the arrival of two new members of staff, Chelsea who is training to be an RSPCA inspector and her animal mad older sister Joanne. Both committed to helping me, be able to provide the care and attention your pets deserve.
Indoor and outdoor areas. Indoor stone stabling area's, has various size hutches available. Our standard hutches are 4 foot x 2.5 foot depth and 2.5 foot added height. Our luxury boarding large hutches are 6 foot x 2.5 foot depth and 2.5 foot added height. Ideal for larger breeds and groups. I also have small 2 foot hutches available, for the super tiny furries, as well as indoor stable space of 10 foot x 12 foot, for rabbits to roam around boarding areas, to have the choice to free roam, as well as lounge in their hutches. Especiially is raining outside.
our large hutches. All hutches are handmade, heavy duty and fox proofed.
Outside Boarding enclosure is set within our half acre paddock. Totally fox proofed. 35 foot square feet and and outdoor hutches are around the parimeter of the enclosure. In this area free range rabbits can run around safely, with no way to dig out, as we dug 1 mtr into the ground to ensure no one can come in or out. Rest assured they are totally safe. Have much fun in tubes, toys and talking to other guests, in their hutches, who are waiting a turn to go and play.
Also a very nice area for Tortoises to free roam. I added 2 chicken coupes for them packed with hay and warm bedding, on a nighy. By day various tree trunks, rocks and a large tray of substrate for them. Much bigger area than any run and lots of grass ond their favourite foods provided. Unfortunately, I can't take in tortoises that need a vivarium.
Within my outdoor half acre of land we have various size exercise pens, from 6 foot x 4 to 9 foot x 6 foot, equipped with various tubes, balls, hide away houses and dig pits. All have sun and rain covers so runs are available as often as possible, even in the unpredicatable British weather. We move pens around, for them requarily, to keep grass fresh and tasty for them.
Surrounded by acres of open land, set in the grounds of the old farmhouse, where there is a 24 hour presence. Also fitted CCTV cameras located in 6 different areas. Running 24 hours a day, giving you that extra piece of mind. All areas are bolted and padlocked on retiring. Rest assured your furry family are in safe hands.
They're fed organic hay, 2 types a day, which i vary, direct from the fields. Fresh veg and fruit also, which I like to vary, for its different nutritional benefits, pellets and grass too.
PLEASE BRING PELLETS THEY USUALLY EAT WITH YOU. TO AVOID UPSET STOMACH'S AND ILEUS.
Hutches, bowls and bottles etc are disinfected out, after every guest with Defra recommended products. Fresh, clean and dry bedding throught.
Health checks daily and lost of care and cuddles too.
Vet checked and approved by local practice. As a qualified holistic pet care therapist, I carry a wide range of medications, from antibiotics to pain relief, parasite control to liquid feeds. If any animal is taken sick while boarding here at Larkfield, it will be brought inside with me, for the duration of its stay, so I can monitor more closely and be able to give meds if needed, day and night. I also have a vet on standby in case of emergencies.
Please Note. A South Gloucestershire Licence does NOT need to be held, to run a small animal boarding centre, as some claim to hold. Only needed if boarding dogs and cats, is it required.
