About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsHamsters, Mice etc.

With over 30 years experience looking after animals I grew up in an animal loving family where we always had pets. Apart from the dogs and cats, the house was full of birds, hamsters, rabbits, we even had a pet goat, a couple of sheep, chickens and ducks, amongst other friendly creatures, mostly belonging to me and cared for by me.

In addition I am a seasoned horse rider and have experience looking after horses and ponies, as well as other farm animals.

Somehow animals tend to feel safe in my company and more than often animals will approach me to seek help and refuge. I often end up looking after rescued pigeons, rabbits, cats or dogs, even a wild rat, as they somehow find me when they need help (maybe it is because I actually notice them).

​My vet is very supportive and always offers her services to give check-ups and treatment when it is necessary.


for example:
rabbit/guinea pig 6'X2' hutch
hamster/mouse 12"X24" cage

but you can choose bring their own accommodation if it is not unpractical :)


All pets have opportunities to play and exercise under supervision.
I have only a few animals taken on full board at one time so that I can ensure that each get enough of my time and attention.

Health & Hygiene:

I change food and water, and clear out and change bedding daily, according to our individual agreement.

We were in desperate need for overnight care for our two dwarf hamsters Lacy and Luna. With a quick google search at the top of the list was Flo. With this being my first time leaving our babies, I was a bit nervous. Flo put every worry at ease, was so quick to respond and assure me all could be sorted by the next day. If you like me need animal care for your little pets, Flo is your girl! I will without a doubt use her services again.

Flo looked after Smudge for a week in June, and she thoroughly enjoyed her stay! Flo kept me updated with pictures and videos throughout the week which was lovely to receive, and was great to see Smudge settled and exploring!

5 From Frankie on

Excellent and uncomplicated holiday pet care - our rabbits loved it.

5 From Ani on

Flo looked after our 2 dwarf hamsters for 8 days whilst we went on holiday. She was brilliant! Great communication beforehand, to explain and make arrangements. And she kept in touch whilst we were away too, sending us pics of our hamsters so we could see how they were. She was really kind, friendly and helpful and also very accomodating with our 'last minute' request! The hamsters came back happy, well and clean! Would definitely recommend :)

5 From Rebecca Taylor on

Flo Is a really caring and pet lover person. She hosted my Rabbit for 6 weeks and over all the time, She sent me pictures and videos. She Is also very flexible, helping me a lot with the uncertainty related to COVID restrictions. I Will leave my Rabbit again ðŸ'¯. Thank you!

5 From Davide on

Flo has looked after our baby boys Socks and Arty twice now and we are always grateful for her services. She is amazing with animals and even sends pictures whilst we are away of the boys enjoying their holiday. We would highly recommend Flo's services and would definitely use her again. Thank you for your kindness and we always enjoy catching up with you!

5 From Steven MCCUBBIN on

I could not be happier with the service I received from Florence. She was able to provide home visits for my 3 rats at short notice. She messaged us and sent pictures every day and went over above to look after our pets in unexpectedly hot weather. It made our holiday much more enjoyable knowing they were well taken care of. Especially because they have medical needs at the moment. She even watered our plants! I can not recommend highly enough. Thank you Florence!

5 From Harriet Cody on

So good to find someone to look after our rabbit that has the time and knowledge to give him personalised care. Lovely updates whilst he was staying with Flo and he came home very happy and relaxed. Would use again!

5 From Mel on

Absolutely lovely lady - great care and time taken with my pets especially my male cockatiel who sadly lost his mate just prior to his stay with Flo. Plenty of photos over our holiday to keep me posted as to their welfare - so so happy with everything Flo has done.

5 From Penny on

Florence looked after our 2 adult rabbits over a weekend in April. She sent us pics of them in their holiday home whilst we were away which was lovely to see. Very organised and very reasonably priced. All Covid compliant as well. Would definitely recommend!

5 From Adam S on

Would recommend to friends as Flo cares so much for animals, gives them loads of love and affection and sends cute pictures and videos every day!

4 From gaia on

Flo gave our 2 Guinea pigs Cookie and Fluffs a lovely week in her home in the summer. We got regular photos and videos from her so we knew they were being well looked after.

5 From Heather on

Our rabbit Nero had a wonderful time with Floe when we were on our holiday. We feel that Flo really loves animals and takes great care of them. During our stay in Portugal she kept sending updates about Nero with little videos showing how happy he was. It was greatly reassuring to know that he was in safe hands. Thank you Flo, we would love to use your services again in the future.

5 From Aga on

Florence looked after our rabbit like he was her own! She was very careful to learn all about his likes and dislikes before his arrival. She was accommodating about drop off and pick up and sent updates throughout our holiday via WhatsApp with photos and videos. Excellent friendly service and our rabbit had a great stay! Will definitely use Florence again.

5 From Becky on

Our hamster Matilda had a very happy holiday with Flo! She was well looked after and we received lots of lovely updates whilst we were away. Highly recommend Flo. Thank you!

5 From Rachel on

Our rabbit Coco spent a happy week with Flo in August. It's particularly helpful that Flo has hutches, we didn't need to haul ours over to her house. Flo took great trouble to prepare a welcoming hutch and make sure all was ready. She let our rabbit out of the hutch to explore each day which was very nice. And she sent us messages and even videos during the visit - unexpected and very comforting! Highly recommended.

5 From Isabel Rossi on

Flo looked after Zippy & George, our guinea pigs and 'Audrey' our Venus Fly Trap whilst we holidayed on The Norfolk Broads. Everyone had a lovely stay with Flo. Zippy & George has a couple of 'spa' days, their fur was ever so soft and Audrey got so attached to Flo, she didn't want to leave by holding onto the window blinds! We had great communication from Flo before, during and after their stay. I would highly recommend using Flo for all your small pet & plant needs. Highlight was getting photos and videos of Zippy & George during our holiday, kids loved getting updates about whilst we were away. Thanks again Flo.

5 From Mary on

We've left Digby with Flo twice over the summer and he always came back very happy and relaxed. We've also got regular updates such as pictures and movies that assured us that everything was fine. In case of issues or schedule changes Flo was very accommodating and tried to help. We'd definitely recommend her.

5 From Marion on

Thanks Flo, it was so reassuring having Marty looked after by you. He likes lots of attention, which I know he got from the lovely photos you sent. We will definitely be coming back and recommending you to friends.

5 From Lyndsey on

We left our chinchilla for 2 weeks with Florence. Florence is the 3rd person we have been left for taking care our chinchilla since we live in Bristol and she is by far the best one. She knows very well how to take care chinchillas and she was sending videos and pictures everyday. I entirely recommend her service.

5 From Lucia on

Flo looked after our Guineapig(Fifi) for a week. She sent us lovely pictures everyday of Fifi watching TV, having Breakfast and wondering around on the floor. She is an excellent professional and I highly recommend her to look after your pet. Thanks Flo, Fifi can't wait to see you again :-) X

5 From Luci Jackson on

Thanks Flo, it was so reassuring having Marty looked after by you. He likes lots of attention, which I know he got from the lovely photos you sent. We will definitely be coming back and recommending you to friends.

5 From Lyndsey on

Hi, I would like to thank Florence for all the kindness that she offered to our babies. We left our two guinea pigs, Elvis and Jerry l, with her to two weeks while we were in holiday and she did a great job taking care of them. She also sent photos of them eating and playing on a daily basis which gave us a lot of confidence that they are in good hands and also allowed us to enjoy our holiday knowing that they are in safe hands in a quiet and cosy home. Thank you very much Florence fir all you help and we will definitely ask for your support again. Kind regards Andrei

5 From Andrei on

Very high quality of care, provided with some reassuring updates and even photos of my two guinea pigs eating and relaxing in their holiday environment! Thanks Flo.

Florence looked after my two guineapigs for a week. She took great care of them and sent us pictures of them having breakfast every day. Also of them out of their cage exploring the room. They came back very relaxed and settled. Can recommend.

5 From Helen on

Florence looked after my two rabbits over Christmas and they seemed very happy with their stay. She was also extremely helpful offering to drop off or pick them up when she could. Would definitely use again.

5 From Olivia on

Flo looked after our Rabbit over Christmas and it worked out very well. Flo is very accommodating in terms of drop off and pick up and we could tell immediately that our rabbit was in very good hands. We've received regular movies and pictures which was very much appreciated, especially by my daughter who is always very concerned if we have to leave him for holidays. We will definitely be back😊

5 From Marion on

Flo looked after our Hamster at short notice for nearly two weeks at a really busy time of year (over Christmas and NYE). Thanks Flo!

5 From Morgan on

I felt very confident leaving our 2 rats, Bean & Wilbur, with Flo. I could tell she knew exactly how to look after them and felt very relaxed while we were away. We received photos and videos so we could make sure they were behaving! About to book Flo again for our next holiday! Would recommend!

5 From Bec Green on

Florence is a lovely lady and looked after our roborovski hamsterand a mouse for two weeks. She took great care for them and even sent pictures of them for us! We are so happy and we'll def come back 😉

Florence looked after my skinny pig for 3 weeks and did a wonderful job! Great communication and brilliant care provided. Highly recommeneded.

Flo took amazing and very personal care of my 2 lovely guineas. She has a small set up so is able to give individual attention to the pets. She clearly adores animals and wants to keep them happy. Thanks Flo

My ferret recently spent a few days there and seemed well and happy. I would feel perfectly confident in boarding him there again.

Flo looked after our guinea pigs for 10 days and did a fantastic job; from giving them their favourite foods of parsley and dandelions to grooming and bathing the long haired guinea! They had a lovely time - thank you Flo!

Flo looked after our dwarf hamster for 2 weeks brilliantly. He's had lots of exercise in his ball and lots of attention. He was very happy with his holiday! Thank you Flo x

5 From Ali Bates on

Flo looked after our guinea pig for two weeks this August. Flo was fantastic, from sending us photos and videos throughout the stay that we could share with our sons, to bringing our pig, Toffee home at the end of the stay. Very happy to recommend.
