My name is Lynne and I have owned Oak Brook guinea pigs for around 10 years. After having guinea pigs and rabbits as pets for many years I decided to open a small breeding facility for guinea pigs. During that time I also boarded my customers guinea pigs when they went on holiday. When my husband retired I decided to retire from breeding and just offer boarding at Oak Brook. I have become a grandparent, able to care for and play with other people’s guinea pigs, knowing I get to give them back! Like most grand parents I spoil them with attention and love and look forward to the next time I see them.
Out side we have six large guinea pig hutches, with plenty of room for up to four guinea pigs in each hutch and a number of runs for exercise and play. During the warm dry weather the guinea pigs get the chance to munch the grass and sleep under the shade of Oak Brooks large White Beam tree. In colder months the guinea pigs have a purpose built lodge with light and heat to keep them warm and comfortable.
In the wet and cold weather the guinea pigs are let out for play time in their lodge or in the families summer house every day. This is when they will socialise with their human friends.
During the Summer and winter the guinea’s have a chance to play in either the guinea pig lodge or outside in large pens. The guinea pigs are never left on their own in the out door pens during the day.
Health & Hygiene:
The hutches are clean and safe and regularly maintained.We do our up most to make sure your guinea’s stay with us is a healthy and happy one. However should your pet become ill whilst in our care we require a letter that gives us permission to take your pet to our local vet and that all costs will be met by you on your return.

Reviews from Our Guests
This was our first time leaving Coco and Caramel with Lynne, Lynne was so welcoming and so caring towards our pigs we instantly knew how well cared for Coco and Caramel would be while we were on holiday. we were so impressed with Lynne's guinea pig boarding facilities that Coco and Caramel are booked in for our future holidays with Lynne over the summer!
From Alison on
Our two guinea pigs have boarded at Lynne's twice so far and I am so glad to have found her having been recommended by family. It is really reassuring knowing that I can use Lynne's service to care for our piggies knowing that she so obviously loves these animals. Her location is stunning with a back garden straight out of an Enid Blyton book and we love knowing that they will be having their own little holiday as well. Both our guinea pigs also had a grooming service last time and they looked so smart when we collected them and for such a reasonable price. I will definitely do that again especially with having a longer haired guinea pig. I definitely recommend Lynne's boarding service.

Boarders Response:That's very flattering of you to say Sarah, thank you
This was the first time our young piggies have had the pleasure of Lynne's loving care and attention. We left them with total confidence in Lynne's care. Oak Brook Guinea Pig Boarding is an amazing setting with perfect facilities. Lynne is very knowledgeable and experienced. We certainly won't hesitate to contact Lynne again for any future holidays for Mo and Nutty!
PS when we got in touch with Lynne whilst we were on holiday enquiring how our piggies were, she even emailed photos of a very happy Mo and Nutty chilling in an outdoor pen on the grass.

Boarders Response:Thank you for this amazing review Natalie.
Lynne looked after our guinea pigs at Easter and we have booked them in again for later in the year. Lynne was very helpful - she didn't mind all my questions! The guineas had clean and tidy accommodation and were well looked after. So much so that my sister-in-law has also booked Oak Brook for her guineas.

Our two Guinea Pigs Bangers and Mash have enjoyed 3 holidays at Oakbrook and are looked after by their breeder Lynne. It is a beautiful location and you can go on holiday knowing how well they are going to be looked after.
