Reviews from Our Guests
Jemma provided an excellent standard of care for my two guinea pigs while I was away for a week. One of our piggies is on medication and Jemma's experience and knowledge was amazing. She provided us with regular updates and photos and it was a home from home for them. Jenny and Simone are looking forward to staying at Sleepy Burrows again soon!

Boarders Response:Our pleasure, hope she continues improving x Thankyou for a lovely review
Lovely setting for our guinea pigs. Jemma is a very friendly, capable lady, got good vibes that our pigs would have a great stay and would be well looked after, which they were. Jemma kept us updated on the welfare of our animals whilst we were on holiday. Great price too. Will definitely use again. Highly recommended.

My spur-thighed tortoise Starsky stayed at Sleepy-burrows for 9 days during September. He was very well looked after and I was able to see pictures of him on Facebook, from Lanzarote. Sleepy Burrows is a lovely place and I hope to be able to leave Starsky there again next year. Very well run, lovely lady - very professional. Many thanks!!

Our hamster Beachball had a great time, and it was a relief to know she was well looked after and had lots of cuddles! Thank you for putting the updates on Facebook - it was good to see she was settling in. Would definitely recommend Sleepy Burrows.

Boarded my 4 rabbits at Sleepy Burrows and would have no hesitation in booking them in for a holiday again! Jemma is a supporter of the Rabbit Welfare Association and their Hutch is Not Enough Campaign. Hence the facilities are excellent - lots of space and lovely boredom breaker toys and treats. Jemma obviously loves small animals and gives those in her care lots of attention. Was lovely to receive updates on the bunnies and reassuring they were being looked after by Jemma.

Our young guinea pigs Flash and Charlie have just stayed at Sleepy Burrows for three nights and were beautifully cared for by Jemma....in fact they look as though they have had a holiday themselves! Thank you so much for all the care and attention you provided them with, they will definitely be back again!

So far we have used Sleepy burrows pet boarding once and so far everything went well. We don't leave our rabbits with nobody except them. With them we feel confident enough to leave him while we're out. Our rabbits is return clean and in good spirits. I will recommend them. Thanks.
