All our animal housing is extra wide and high giving your pets more room to play and explore.

Health & Hygiene:

Hygiene is a major factor in our boarding accommodation All hutches and cages are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected using Anigene veterinary disinfectant before the next occupant.

We also supply clean bedding and fresh water on a daily basis so your pets are always snug and clean. We treat all pets as if they were our own.

Should any unforeseen accidents or illness occur we will of course ensure that the best possible care is taken - including veterinary treatment if required.

All rabbits must have VHD and Myxomatosis vaccinations which must be shown on arrival.

We will provide your pets with fresh fruit and vegetables together with fresh hay and redigrass. Feel free to bring any dry food with you that your pet is used to.

Our bunnies Buttercup and Cola are regulars at Noah's Ark, they are always cared for and very well looked after. Maureen is always very welcoming and we are relaxed on our holiday knowing they are having a great holiday too.

We needed to board out our Rosella Parrot ‘Charlie' while away for 2 weeks. Maureen came and collected him and looked after him for the period, bringing him back home when our holiday was over. Charlie seemed to be very happy when he came home and apparently was a model guest at Noah's Ark. we were very happy with Maureen and the service and we are planning to book a further 4 holidays for Charlie before the end of the year.

Our budgie Louie recently spent his holidays at Noah's Ark for the first time, lovely location, very clean. Maureen is a lovely, friendly lady who took great care of him (all the other animals look very well cared for too) & it's plain to see she really enjoys looking after animals. Louie will always have a holiday home there now, can't thank Maureen enough. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks again Maureen :-) x

Thank you to Maureen and Mike for looking after our 2 girls🐰🐰 for 2weeks...... Fantastic countryside holiday home, 100% recommend. Needed large accommodation for our bonded pair, and Noah's Ark provided everything we were looking for!

Really happy that I took my bird to Noah's Ark. Friendly owner and everything very clean and bright. We ran late due to traffic but the owner was very patient with us picking up our pet at a later time. Highly recommended.

5 From Adrienne on

Our 3 rabbits love coming here on their holidays. Maureen is so good with them, even our little girl who has a head tilt! Really recommeded! Maureen is a gem!

I'm so happy I have found Noah's Ark for my 2 baby guinea pigs - I couldn't have wished for a more luxurious and friendlier place. The premises are pristine and there is plenty of space for all pets from small to large indoors as well as outdoors. I think my Lilly and Goldie would have quite happily stayed with Maureen after all the love and care they received. Their cage was beautifully prepared and a lot more spacious than the one we have at home! I have already pre-booked for the summer holidays and I will be bringing my 4 budgies along as well. I will be a loyal customer for years to come :-) .

From Ersilia Simpson on

We have a pair of house rabbits, who are used to a life of spoilt luxury!! Finding someone you can trust to care for your precious pets is hard. But we were very lucky to come across Noahs Ark and I'm so glad we did. Maureen and Mike are lovely people who take pets into their home and treat them like their own. The accommodation is excellent and they have plenty of space to run free, both inside and out. I would certainly recommend them and will definitely be using them again.

5 From Helen White on

We are brand new to chicken-keeping and so were apprehensive about where to send our chickens when we went away, but our 4 girls spent 5 days here, and as a family, we were all thrilled to bits with their setting and care from Mike & Maureen at Noahs Ark. Maureen even showed us how to check for when they are ready to lay and gave us lots of handy tips on food and treats too! We will now have total peace of mind in leaving them in the future - We will definitely be booking their next holiday at Noahs Ark!!!

5 From Leigh Harper-Roberts on

My piggies loved it. They were cared and loved and fed better than at home! Lovely warm cosy indoor hutch and even toys. I defy anyone to find anywhere better.

5 From Denise Parr on

I was struggling to find someone to look after our house duck over christmas. Then I found noahs ark where nothing seemed too much trouble. Ducky really enjoyed his stay over Christmas. Plenty of treats and cuddles in with the price. Lovely location, very clean and excellent facilities. Will be using again and highly recommended.

5 From vanessa halford on

Our 4 chickens spent a lovely Christmas break with Mike and Maureen. Such obvious animal lovers, they treated our "Girls" as part of their own family. Great to have that peace of mind, knowing they were being well cared for (and well fed!). Highly recommended...

5 From Rowena on

I recently left my four guinea pigs with Noah's Ark whilst I went on holiday. They loved it!. The facilities are really good with large cages and an exercise area. Maureen and Mick made a fuss of them and enjoyed cuddles. They ate really well as they had fresh vegetables every day. They were spoiled in their 5 star accommodation! I highly recommend them!
