About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: Guinea PigsReptilesHamsters, Mice etc.

My name is Karen and I work as a dog groomer. I have owned and loved piggies my whole life, my first at the age of 3!

I have 7 resident piggies and hold a qualification in pet first aid. I studied in small animal care and will look after your pets as I do my own.
We are fully insured with Petplan


Hutches are kept in our heated garage to shelter from wind and rain and all piggies are locked away over night after being out on the grass during the day.
We can accommodate individual piggies and small family groups. We can accommodate up to 6 Piggies in one group comfortably. Please contact us for prices.
Hutches are cleaned fully every 3 days and spot cleaned daily.


We have large outdoor runs that are 5ft square along with smaller 4x3 ft runs for smaller groups.
All runs have a shelter hut to keep them cozy and are all situated for prime grazing. Piggies will be allowed out daily where weather permits.

Health & Hygiene:

Grooming and nail clips available for a small cost.
Cages cleaned every 3 days
Hay and fresh veg provided daily and we provide dried food too. These include all the popular varieties.

From initial contact to collecting and all the in-between, Karen was professional, helpful and extremely friendly. Our two guinea pigs went in during bank holiday weekend and we had some issues surrounding our time away. Karen was flexible and helpful, and we could immediately tell that our boys were in good hands when she gave them a little cuddle upon meeting them. They came home relaxed, and happy, and we never worried about them once during our time away. Karen had some outdoor time with them as well, giving them freedom to roam in the beautiful area. Highly recommended, and will definitely be returning in the future! Thanks!

From start to finish our experience of using the Guinea pig hotel was fantastic. Karen was super flexible, communicated promptly, even delivered our piggies when we had to quarantine after our trip! Our boys enjoyed fresh home-grown veg, outdoor runs and an aircon unit because they stayed during a heatwave! Thank you, we are definitely recommending them and our piggies will be coming back as well when we go away again!

We left our hamster and guinea pig with Karen for a week while we were on holiday and were not sure what to expect. But from the moment we met Karen she made us and our boys feel totally at ease. She took great care of them and let us know how they were getting on. She clearly loves being with the animals and they love her too! From our first message all the way through to our plane being delayed and us being late to pick them up, the whole process was straightforward and relaxed. Also great value for money. Karen grows fresh fruit and vegetables and looks after the animals as if they were her own. We will not hesitate to book with her again. Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job. 😊
