Tortoise Holidays

We offer a holiday boarding service for tortoises so you can enjoy your holiday safe in the knowledge that your tortoise is being cared for correctly by an experience tortoise owner whilst  you are away. 


Frances has owned Tortoises for over 6 years now and has adopted tortoises

from the SSPCA and The Tortoise Protection Group. She has 2 Horsefield

Tortoises (Stampy & Stella) and 2 Leopard Tortoises (Sparty & Alfredo).

She understands what your tortoise needs to be healthy and happy while you

are away. 

We offer suitable tortoise enclosures with everything your little tort will need

for a happy healthy holiday. If you would prefer to bring your own enclosure that

is fine too. There is a £10 fee to use one of our cages.

Whilst in our care all animals are housed separately unless they come together. 

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. 

Our daily care schedule includes health checks, exercise, bathing where

appropriate and any other special requirements that is stated by

yourself. When the weather allows we will always put your tortoise in our

tortoise garden to stretch their legs and do some Basking in the natural sun.

In the event of any illness occurring, veterinary advice and treatment, if necessary,

will take place and you will be contacted directly.  The cost of all veterinary bills will be covered by you. 

We spend lots of time with our guests every day, ensuring they are happy and

well. We provide regular email or Whatsapp updates of your pets holiday,

including photos and videos.

We can accommodate special needs and medical boarders, contact us for more
