About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsHamsters, Mice etc.

At Belvedere Boarding your pet will be treated as if they are on holiday. We like to get to know your pets and will ask for details of their likes/preferences.

We only take in a few pets at a time so that your pet is guaranteed lots of love and attention.

All potential clients are encouraged to visit to 'check out' where their pet will be boarded at no obligation.
We have our own three rabbits and have owned rabbits since childhood. We do not have children, our current rabbits Dora & Dylan are our children!
Pictures can be seen on our Facebook page - Belvedere Boarding.


For rabbits we have five spacious outside hutches housed in our climate controlled summerhouse along with 3 houses for guinea pigs.
We now have two large hutches in our garage for rabbits. We do only board neutered rabbits.

Unfortunately we do not take rabbits or guinea pigs indoors.

For cage birds, you will need to bring the cage and a supply of the birds’ regular food. We only take in one cage at a time.

For gerbils, chinchillas and hamsters, you will need to bring their cage along with their dry food and exercise ball if they use these. We only take in a maximum of two cages at a time of hamster, gerbils and chinchillas.

For tortoises please enquire about their needs.

Our hutches vary in sizes and your pets will be housed in appropriate housing. At quiet times we may upgrade your pets. No animal will ever be housed in a cage too small for their needs. Litter trays are cleaned out daily along with soiled bedding. All hutches are disinfected when cleaned both during stays and between bookings.


All pets are encouraged to exercise daily and where possible are in runs all day before being put to bed.

Caged birds get fresh air too, if I am working in the garden then I take their cage out with me for a change of scenery if you agree to this.

Health & Hygiene:

Rabbits must be vaccinated and the vaccination must be in date, and not due to expire until two weeks after their stay. A valid vaccination record card must be shown when you deliver your pet.

No animals are kept in the garden overnight.

Our bunnies Holly and Molly thrive during their time with Aunty Bernie. I think they look forward to their staycation as much as we do! Highly recommended

5 From Ian, St Albans on

We could not recommend Bernie highly enough. She is brilliant and takes great care of our furry friends.

5 From Richard Kent on

Lovely lady, lovely surroundings for your bun. Can't go wrong, excellent 🐰.

5 From Michael J Getliff on

Fantastic care and excellent service- I thought I was crazy about animals but Bernie might even beat me on that front and you honestly can't ask for more than that when you leave your pet. Would 100% recommend and will be back next year!

5 From Lucy Stern on

My budgie Belle has just spent a week with bernadine at belvedere boarding. She's come back happy and chirpy and enjoyed her stay away from home. Bernadine is a lovely lady who loves and cares for her animals.

5 From Kim Woolfrey on

We are very happy to leave our Guineas with Bernadine. She takes great care and we know they're in extremely safe hands. We find the videos are really useful tools with young children in getting them used to the idea of coming home.

5 From Rachel Francis on

Ash and Daisy May always have a great time. While we are on holiday, they get their own change of scenery. They are well cared for and always relaxed and calm when we collect them. Thank you.

Hello Aunty Bernie. Thankyou for my lovely two week stay. I had lots of fun and made friends too. Mummy says a big Thankyou to you both too... :)

5 From Marzipan on

2 lovely people who have a genuine love of animals and take good care of them. We have booked our rabbit in several times in the past year or so. Thank you!

5 From Rumble on

Our rabbit Twinkle stayed at Belvedere for two weeks and was really very happy. We had regular updates and felt very confident leaving him in such a friendly home from home environment .... thank you !

5 From Nicola Honey on

Our house rabbit has stayed here on many occasions and is treated like a prince! Couldn't wish for a more loving and caring holiday home for him.

5 From Jane May on

Bernadine kindly boarded my two bunnies whilst I went away for a few days. The bunnies were very well looked after - exercised, even had their hair brushed (they are long hair rabbits) and were well fed and watered. Bernadine is a lovely lady who clearly loves animals. Highly recommended to look after your pets whilst you’re away. Thanks Bernadine! X

5 From Chloe on

Faultless. Two week holiday, stress free, loved my bedding and neighbours. The lady who looked after me was winderful. Looking forward to my owners going away again! Pip (Dwarf Hamster, but prefers just ‘hamster’)

5 From PIP [Hamster] on

I have used this service for my pets on more than one occasion. Picked them up again today and they aren’t always treated as one of the family. Highly recommended

5 From Nicky on

Two wonderful people who are devoted to caring for animals. I could ask for better care for my pet. I would highly recommend.

5 From J Bartrick on

Our Guinea pigs and cockatiel have used this service on more than one occasion. They are treated as one of the family and are always well looked after. Already booked to go back twice this year.
