My main concern is for your guinea pig(s) welfare. I only take a few boarders at a time, so your Guinea’s can have some personal attention every day.

My boarding establishment is safe and secure and I am on site day and night.

The hutches are checked and spot-cleaned twice daily, renewing hay, food and water, with a thorough clean-out at least once a week.

I use Megazorb with a layer of Soft Snowflake Bedding, and Meadow Hay in the sleeping compartment. All hutches in the winter months will be covered at night.
Please Note:

Fresh Vegetables/Herbs/fruit are given daily unless you specify otherwise along with sweet meadow hay and Readigrass which is given when fresh grass is not available in the winter months.

I provide hard feed in the form of Gerty Guinea Pig muesli mix or a "complete" nugget both of which I feed to my own Guinea Pigs. If you feed your Guinea Pigs on any other type of hard feed may I kindly ask you to bring it with you for consistency.

Please advise of any special dietary requirements at the time of booking. You will be asked to sign a form detailing any special needs.


Guinea pigs are housed in 3ft 6in hutches with felt roofs and sheltered from draughts, wind and rain. Complete with hay rack, water bottle, toy, food bowl and mineral/salt lick, gnaw stone, each hutch comes with a battery Light, Cage Fans & Ice pods in hot weather, and with heated snuggle safe discs in the winter periods. All contents are thoroughly cleaned and sterilised after each stay.

You are most welcome to bring any toys/igloos that your Guinea’s use, to make them feel at home, although these can be provided during their stay.

Unfortunately I cannot provide accommodation for more than 2 guinea pigs living together unless specified by the owner where an aditional charge will be made.

   PLEASE NOTE: I do have a 5 day minimum stay period 
  £10.00 per day or part-day per hutch (housing a maximum of 2 Guinea Pigs)
