Guinea Pig Boarding & Accommodation


All Guinea Pigs who stay with us, have an all-inclusive boarding experience. They will stay in a purposely adapted outbuilding created to keep all your  'Piggies' safe and happy, with no barking dogs or cats to scare them. 


All of our hutches are indoors (safe from any predators). We do not have any outdoor hutches so we do not leave any animal outdoors during the night at all. We have a selection of hutches available to suit your requirements. Take a look at our Accommodation below. 


We are dedicated to giving each Guinea Pig all the special care and attention that they deserve while you are away. From spa days, where your Guinea Pig can have a bath and nail trim, to special care for Guinea's who need medication for non-contagious illnesses. 


What’s included in their stay?


We supply everything your Piggy needs while staying with us

  • Fresh Fruit and Vegetables twice a day
  • Unlimited hay 
  • Fresh water  changed twice a day
  • A selection of Dried food, ( we keep Harringtons and Burgess Nuggets in stock)
  • All residents cleaned out daily
  • We keep our guests busy with lots of toys and tunnels to play with.
  • Daily play-time in an outside run ( if requested, weather permitting and not left unattended)
  • All residents are allocated their own individual hutch and run during the duration of their stay
  • Daily cuddles and facebook updates for mum and dad.

We understand that all Guinea Pigs are individuals. They are all different breeds, different ages and all have their own unique needs. After giving your guinea pigs time to settle in,we spend one to one time with them to ensure that all their needs are met and they enjoy their stay. 


Please feel free to bring along any of your own guinea pig's toys & beds if you wish to,  as this may help your pet settle in quickly.

Items such as tunnels and beds etc, all have their own scent on the items which may help them feel at ease in their new surroundings.



We also offer Spa days for Guinea Pigs for any Guinea Pigs that are staying with us at the Piggery.

. Spa days are from £15.
