My name is Jill and I started boarding guinea pigs when I had trouble finding somewhere for my own eight piggies to stay for a holiday. BOOK EARLY FOR THE MAY AND SUMMER HOLIDAYS. Places go very quickly for May bank holiday week and July and August. OPEN FOR CHRISTMAS AND THE NEW YEAR
All cages are in the house. I have underfloor heating which keeps a constant temperature during colder months which is important for guinea pigs, especially skinnies. I have a large, completely walled garden which is safe for large tortoises that can go outside.
Covered runs on the lawn for the summer with raised houses so they don't get cold and damp. In Winter they will have floor time each day.
Health & Hygiene:
All cages and accessories are sterilised between guests and a varied diet of vegetables and fruit is given. I can administer any medication already prescribed. In an emergency I use a specialist exotics vet or can use your preferred vet.
Small Pet Boarding Prices
One or two piggies in a cage £8 per day, trio £10 per day, hamster/mice £2.50 per day, tortoise £2.50 per day. I have one larger enclosure which can accommodate up to six piggies, £12 per day. A £10 non-refundable deposit required at time of booking (deducted from final bill). BACS, cash or cheque accepted.
Services: GroomingClaw Clipping
I check all guests nails at no extra charge during their stay. A full bath, ear clean, hair cut (if needed), boy bits etc is available for £10 per piggie.
Reviews from Our Guests
What an absolute treat for the piggies! Jill is kind and caring and so knowledgeable. My two had a great time & we will be back! I was nervous leaving them but when I collected them they'd obviously enjoyed & had a lovely nail trim too. Thanks so much! :)

Jill is brilliant, always takes care of our girls (up to six at once), and even throws in a nail trim when they need it (I'm still afraid of their black toes!). She's also great at being flexible with timings, which is really useful when we get caught up in traffic! While obviously I prefer to have my piggies at home with me, I trust Jill to give them the best care when we go away. Very grateful to have someone we can trust close by.
From Alex on
Jill is a lovely lady who takes real care of our guineas when we are on holiday. Her home is warm and she really pampers each piggie with quality food and bedding.
Wouldn't take them anywhere else.
From Andria Sweeting on
Wow what can I say. Jill is the only place I will ever trust with my boys. Nails clipped, cleaned brushed the works. Her house is immaculate and a very safe environment for your little furries. All the guest animals seemed so happy. Full bellies, clean cages plenty of water. Jill is very caring for each animal and suggested amazing things for my boys to get along better as we had a dominace problem with a very naughty piggies. She is the best. Took all the tips on board and have booked the gineapig Hotel for my next holiday too. Also my boys are invited back for a grooming whenever needed.
Thanks so much Jill. Four very happy customers came home today. Kate xxxx

Very happy with the hotel.
Nice big cages in a safe, experienced environment.
My piggies also had the spa treatment and came home with fresh haircuts and pedicures.
I could tell the 'Concierge' is very caring towards her guests.
I would be happy to leave my piggies in her care in care in future.
From Gareth on
Jill is a very competent, caring individual who is passionate about animals. The cages and room were spotless and she looked after our guinea pig really well. Would highly recommend
From Peter Churm on
Our two little piggies just had a stay at the guinea pig hotel and were exceptionally cared for. Jill makes you feel relaxed and you certainly know your permits are in very good hands. Jeffrey and Keith were well cared for and will definitely be paying another visit soon for another holiday. Thank you for your great service.
From Mam to Keith and Jeffrey on
My sons hamster stayed in the Piggie Hotel for 2 weeks in August this year. He was very well looked after and we felt relaxed knowing he was happy and safe. Jill is an exceptionally kind and professional lady and all the animals in her care are very lucky indeed! She totally understands how important all pets are to their owners.
