Hi, my name is Jacqui and welcome to Cheddlewood Small Animal Boarding. Cheddlewood provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for your beloved pets which opened on the 1st March 2015. I am fully insured for both your and my peace of mind and a member of the Rabbit Welfare Association. I currently have the pleasure of being owned by 5 rabbits, 4 of which are rescues, 2 dogs (one of which is a rescue), 2 lovebirds, 2 budgerigars and indoor and outdoor fish. Having cared for colleagues animals when they went on holiday, I decided that when I retired from the NHS I would fulfill my lifelong dream and work with and care for animals.
INDOOR: 3 x 5ft rabbit arks with incorporated runs. 1 x 6ft rabbit ark with incorporated run. Large indoor cages for guinea pigs.
Rabbits have access to built-in runs at all times. Guinea pigs and rabbits have access to outdoor runs, of various sizes, weather permitting.
Health & Hygiene:
All rabbits must be vaccinated against VHD1, VHD2 and Myxomotosis for their own and other animals' protection. Dried food to be supplied by the owner to prevent upset tummies, hay/greens will be given daily at owner's request.
All accommodation is cleaned out on a daily basis, and deep cleaned in between occupancy with a pet friendly disinfectant.

Reviews from Our Guests
A belated review from November. Our Degus Malcolm and Cookie were the last guests of the season at Cheddlewood. As always they enjoyed their stay and settled in very easily. Jacqui had a clear rapport with them and they loved her company.
I would highly recommend Cheddlewood and we have just booked Malcolm and Cookie back in for their summer holiday!

We have just collected two happy Degus from Cheddlewood. Malcolm and Cookie enjoyed their holiday with Jacqui and have returned home in very good moods. We will be boarding them again with Jacqui later in the year. Thanks Cheddlewood

We recently boarded our two Degus at Cheddlewood and were a little anxious as we had not done this before. We need not have worried. Jacqui took excellent care of Plummet and Blotch and catered brilliantly for their specialist needs. I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely use her again.

My bunnies have just spent another happy holiday at Cheddlewood.
Jacqui has a fantastic setup for the animals. She is knowledgable and obviously very caring for all her guests.
Definitely will use again and recommend to others. 5 star service and facilities.

Henry my indoor rabbit usually stays with my mom, but my recent holiday this was not possible. I viewed cheedlewood in advance, and was confident that henry would be well cared for in a safe environment, and booked his stay. Cheedlewood has a very caring owner, who has rabbits of her own. A clean environment with spacious hutches. I would use Cheedlewood again

I have left my 2 rabbits with Jacqui on a number of occasions now and am always really pleased. She has an amazing set up at Cheddlewood and clearly loves and cares about the animals greatly. I would definitely recommend her to anyone I know. ***** stars from me!!!!

I left both of my Guinea pigs here for one week in July 2015. It is clear after meeting with Jackie who runs this business, that she has a real passion and commitment of care to all of the animals here, so I had no concerns at all leaving them in her care. It is a clean and welcoming environment for any small animal. On my return my pets had been well looked after, and I will hopefully be using her services again next year. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cheddlewood to anyone thinking of boarding their pets.
From Wendy on
I left my two guinea pigs here on several occasions and I was very impressed by the standard of care. I could happily leave my pets knowing they would be well looked after and very happy. Highly recommended!

We left our budgies for the first time with Jacqui this month. When I dropped them she was knowledgeable, reassuring and asked all the right questions. I was able to go on holiday without feeling worried. When I went to pick the birds up me and my children were welcomed (even though the kids did make themselves at home right away!). The birds had obviously been well cared for, with a clean cage, clean water and plenty of seed. They had been introduced to some new food that they cannot get enough of. I am in the process of booking again for sometime in August. Needless to say I was impressed, and Jacqui has an obvious love of animals. Thank you again, Erica.

We left our guinea pig Molly at Cheddlewood and went on holiday with great peace of mind knowing she would be looked after amazingly well. Jackie is friendly, knowledgeable and devoted to providing a first class service with excellent facilities. I would definitely use Cheddlewood again and would thoroughly recommend it to other pet owners. Thank you Jackie!
