We pride ourselves on being a small business and offering a very personal but professional service. We only take a small number of guests so are able to provide plenty of individual love and attention to all. Quality not quantity is our motto! Join and follow us on Facebook @ "ThePetBoardingLodge" and also at "TheParrotLodge".
All our guests are housed in a custom built block of luxury lodges. These comprise a large, fully insulated and draft free hutch area with an individual run accessed via a pop-hole. The double lined hutch provides a draft free and warm enclosure during winter and a cool enclosure during the summer. Heaters, heat mats and snuggle pads are used during the winter months depending on individual guest needs.
Dust free litter, bedding and hay plus a quality dried food and fresh fruit and vegetables are included in our daily rates. Any special dietary needs can be catered for, but specific or specialist dried foods to be provided by the owner.
Our custom built lodges with attached run allow all our guests to enjoy secure outdoor freedom for the whole of their stay.
We also have secure runs and playpens for grazing on the lawn and provide sun shades and ice pods plus wind and waterproof covers for inclement weather.
Health & Hygiene:
Litter trays and lodges are cleaned daily and thoroughly disinfected between guests.
Rabbits require up to date vaccinations for myxomatosis and VHD.
In the event of your pet becoming unwell or requiring veterinary advice, we will seek this through our local practice (Dragon Veterinary Centre or Woodlands) or through your own preferred practice if in the local area.
Small Pet Boarding Prices
All rabbits and guinea pigs are housed in the outside lodges.
Outdoor Lodges: From £10 per day
Regrettably, with the exception of parrots, we are no longer able to board indoor animals due to extremely limited space. For information on our parrot boarding, please refer to www.theparrotlodge.co.uk
Wouldn't take my boys to anyone else! Best boarding I've ever come across!

I boarded our two Guinea Pigs (Polly & Ellie) with the Pet Boarding Lodge. If your Animals are very special to you then leaving them at holiday time can be a really stressful experience. Ginny and Kim took the stress away because their facilities are excellent and they are very caring people. At the Pet Boarding Lodge my Guinea Pigs were also on holiday. They had a lovely time in a totally safe and caring environment. I definitely wouldn't board Polly and Ellie anywhere but PBL.
From Nigel Tucker on
Fantastic choice for your small furry or feathered friend/s, we boarded a baby/young rabbit, so can only comment in detail with regard to our experience with this species.
However we looked at many options within the locality, & TPBL proved a very easy choice. The service is both personal & professional, with excellent hygiene, comfort & adequate space for the physical health of rabbit.
Most other facilities provided very small hutches, & many of them, that without adequate staff a rabbit would be very much imprisioned for much of the 24hrs.
TPBL appear to spend time with each animal, & think of the details required to maintain not only health but emotional welbeing & genuine kindness.
If you love & care for your furry family member; selection of YOUR holiday accommodation is according to needs & wants.....but as flurries have no choice, choose well, TPBL would have 5 stars on a ThumperTripAdvisor ;)
From Sand on
I was very happy with the service from the pet boarding lodge. It was good to know my hamster was being looked after in a nice surrounding and that he would receive the right attention whilst we were away.
From Stephen on
My girls were so happy and relaxed when we picked them up! That said it all! We will definitely entrust our girls to Ginny and Kim again. Great service!
From Hannah Jackson on
Thank you so much Ginny and Kim for looking after Mockie (our African grey parrot). You are both very knowledgeable and passionate about parrots and you made us feel at ease with leaving Mockie in your care for a few days. We could tell Mockie had been cared for very well and like one of your own, as he seemed to be at ease with you when we came to collect him. The set up you have for parrot boarding is exceptional, the room is an adventure playground for parrots! There is so much for any feathered guests to do, giving them lots of stimulation and fun. It was great to receive the regular updates of Mockie's progress, along with some fantastic pictures of what he has been up to during his stay. We are very grateful to you both and would certainly recommend you to anyone. Mockie is very much looking forward to spending more time with you in a few months time. Sarah and Paul

Thank you so much Ginny and Kim for taking in my Ecclectus parrot Tukki and for keeping him in your safe hands while we were on holiday this year. It's the first time we have ever left him and truly wouldn't have thought about doing so until we found the both of you. How amazing that in just a few days you knew exactly Tukki's likes and dislikes and all his cheeky ways. The updates of Tukki's progress and the pictures you sent were so wonderful to receive whilst away....it put a smile on my face. I have to say that you are fantastic at what you do. You took great care and attention of our little boy and we are very grateful. Thank you so much.
Love from Tukki and Melinda xx

Came home to three happy very well cared for rats. This was even despite one getting an unfortunate injury (most likely due to a fight with his cage mates) during their stay; this was promptly dealt with and was kept up to date with vets opinions and options. All three of my rats have come home happy and confident and have clearly been handled regularly - probably more so than they get at home!
From Alex Birchmore on
Our Hamster 'Marble' was cared for so well while we were away that we wouldn't hesitate to recommend 'The Pet Boarding Lodge' to other pet owners. We were particularly impressed with the contact that we received whilst we were away which reassured us that 'Marble' was enjoying her holiday too. Thank you Ginny and Kim.
From Hilary Rossiter on
In the past we have always been nervous of leaving Nibbles in boarding but not anymore. He was so well cared for and given the opportunity to interact with the other rabbits. I imagine, given the choice, he would rather have stayed than come home with us. A fantastic place to board your rabbit whilst away and I unreservedly recommend thepetboardinglodge.co.uk. We will definitely use them again. Thank you Ginny and Kim.
From Fleur & John on
safe secure housing, extremely well looked after, never seen the bunnies happier. we even had holiday pics emailed of their stay! five star bunny holiday resort, would recommend them to anyone and everyone.
From Rebecca on
Ginny and Kim treated Clover our rabbit really well he took a while to forgive us for bringing him back home. We are sure he will look forward to his next visit. Many thanks.
From Judy Smith on
On very short notice we left our two guinea pigs with Ginny and Kim and could not have been happier with the service and care given both to us and to the animals. One of our guinea pigs had an eye infection and the other is only a little baby but both were happy and content and came back looking happy and healthy. Despite being in Germany I had regular contact with Kim and Ginny about the guinea pigs and felt confident I knew exactly what was going on. I would recommend them to any and everyone. Thank you so much.
From Emma Mulligan on
Thank you for looking after my two boys with such care! Excellent service, I could enjoy my time away knowing that my boys were in very good hands.
From Valentina Cicerone on
This was our first experience of boarding our 3 young baby guinea pigs and as a family we were very keen to make the right decision. After very careful research we decided to go with Ginny and Kim's pet boarding service as their communication with us from start to finish was excellent, they had a very personal touch and obviously loved pets coming to stay (just what qualities we were looking for). Once we met them both and saw the accommodation they had provided for our pets we all felt so happy with the decision we had made and went on our holiday reassured and happy that our guinea pigs were being left in very safe hands. I cannot recommend this service highly enough to anyone looking for boarding for their small animals. We very much hope to use Ginny and Kim again in the near future.
From Sarah Farr on
If you love your pet and want it to have the very best of care, then Kim and Ginny's Pet Boarding Lodge is the place to book. But be warned, your animal will be given so much love and attention, it may not want to come home! Thank you, ladies, for your wonderful care of Hazel, the house rabbit. I've finally found someone I can leave her without feeling guilty!! Hope to see you again soon. Fiona & Isla
From Fiona Robertson on
Kim and Ginny looked after our rabbits over the Easter holidays and cared for them as if they were their own. Excellent facilities with plenty of love and hugs. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a 'home from home' environment for their pets.
From Jane Turner on
This was the first time leaving my rabbit whilst on holiday. I was asked to describe her normal day so that Kim & Ginny could try to keep everything similar for Bobby, which I thought was really great. When I got to the Pet Lodge I knew straight away she was in good hands! The cage was really big and Kim and Ginny were really nice. I was sent photos and updates while I was away which was lovely to see. I will definitely be using the Pet Lodge again and I would recommend them. Their level of care was fantastic!
From Kelly MacPhee on
Having recently boarded our very precious feathered family for 2 1/2 weeks with The Pet Boarding Lodge, I must say how delighted we are with the care they received. One of our birds is an African Grey parrot, who are not the easiest birds to leave. When we returned to collect them all, Ginny and Kim had made lots of imaginative toys to entertain him, and he received lots of cuddles while he was there. It makes it so much easier to go away knowing our birds are in such safe hands. I would recommend The Pet Boarding Lodge to anyone who needs a safe holiday home for their precious bird(s).
From June Rennie on
If you are looking for small animal boarding, stop and book your pets into the Pet Boarding Lodge. I cannot express my gratitude for the care that Kevin and Freddie, my 5 year old Guinea Pigs received when they stayed for 16 days over Christmas 2014. I am not sure they wanted to come home when I picked them up.
The Pet boarding lodge cater to all their needs with a very thorough booking form regarding your pet and I was particularly impressed that they even went to the trouble of buying their special brand of food for them, a very nice touch indeed.
We had regular updates on the boys and have already booked them back in for a few days in February and for 2 weeks in April and will not hesitate in recommending the pet boarding lodge to anyone.
From Emma Fraser on
We had our rabbit Lola stay at The Pet Boarding Lodge over the Christmas holidays. Ginny and Kim provided a very personal service. They picked her up on the day and dropped her off without any issues. They kept us updated on how Lola was doing, including pictures. When Lola was dropped home after her visit she seemed happy and relaxed.
Would definitely recommend and use again.
Many thanks to Kim and Ginny, Lola couldn't have been in safer hands
