We provide all they will need for their stay whether thats top quality hays, fresh food, insects or pellets (we ask you bring your pets own dry food as changing food can lead to sore tummys), bowls, bottles and bedding. You are welcome to bring their favourite toys, treats or bedding.

We recommend where possible you bring your pet with their own habitat. This will allow them to settle in with us in a safe environment they know. If you cannot provide the habitat please contact us and we will try to provide suitable accommodation.

We will ask how often you feed your pet and what you feed them, any supplements and especially what treats are their favourite. If your pet has a routine we will try to follow that as this will help your pet to feel more settled with us.


Pets that enjoy and are used to being handled will be handled daily. Your pet will get out of their enclosure daily to stretch their legs or wings. If the weather allows and your pet enjoys being outside we will always let them have lots of time outside alternatively we will make sure they get time indoors.

I recently had my Royal Ball Python, Dot, boarded with McMarshy's for a week. They were absolutely brilliant. Dot felt right at home whilst being looked after by Jade. They were able to accomodate a snake the size of Dot, which she is nearly fully grown. They had an appropriate and suitable vivarium for her and Dot settled right away. Jade even sent pictures and videos of Dot during my holiday, which was a really nice touch. McMarshy's are very experienced looking after exotic pets. I would definitely use their services again.

Just back with my two ferrets Teddy and Mitch after their holiday with Jade. They had a fantastic time. Had great fun with Jade's lovely ferret Flint. Jade and Frances are lovely, friendly and caring . Jade treated my boys as her own and gave them lots of cuddles. Had updates every day with pictures and videos. Boys are looking forward to returning

Frances has taken fantastic care of my rabbit and tortoise for a weeks holiday. Toby my tortoise has had an amazing time digging in the tortoise garden and eating the strawberry plants and Hughie my rabbit has had a lovely week in the summerhouse getting lots of attention. Frances kept me up to date throughout the week and sent me lots of pictures of the guys having fun. Frances was really kind and offered to drop the pets off for me once I was back from holiday which was fantastic. I would highly recommend McMarshys Small & Exotic Pet Boarding, I will definitely be using them again in the future. Thanks again.
