About Us

Welcome to Moonfleet Boarding.

We are a professional teaching couple, both animal lovers and vegetarians, who offer holiday accommodation for small pets in the grounds of our home.  We are located on a quiet street in the old sector of Chickerell Village.  All of our hutches are named after Chickerell street names and have been given lovingly decorated plaques by our daughter:

We are happy to accommodate rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils and budgies.

We provide hutches and runs for guinea pigs and rabbits, enabling your pet to have plenty of exercise whilst away from home! We have a dedicated “nook” housing our hutches – please visit our gallery for more details.

Hamster, gerbil and budgie owners can bring along their own cages so that their pet feels cosy and comfortable!  These small pets will be cared for inside our home.

Whilst your pet is in our care, we can provide a daily balanced diet of dried food as well as fresh vegetables for them to enjoy!

Please take a look at our competitive prices – we offer discounts if you have more than one pet.

Moonfleet Boarding – a home from home for your pets.


Moonfleet Boarding is a wonderful caring 5 star animal hotel. We love our guinea pig and can happily leave her in the care of Francine and family knowing that she will be loved and cared for whilst we are away. Francine sends us photos of her happy and contented either out in the run or having a cuddle which is a great comfort. We can highly recommend Moonfleet which we have used on many occasions. Ian & Liz

I want to give a special “Thank you” for your efforts to make the time for our guinea pigs.  We will warmly recommend Moonfleet Pet Boarding to all friends which are looking for a nice and friendly place to accommodate their pets.  Thanks for your exemplary service.  Helmut, Susan & Kim 

Our bunny Lily recently stayed at Moonfleet whilst we were away on holiday. Francine was very kind,  friendly and professional in her approach so we felt confident that Lily was in safe hands. We even had photos of Lily emailed to us whilst we were away which was a lovely touch.  If we were to go away again we would have no hesitation on Lily going back to Moonfleet for a holiday too.  Kate & Liam

Our one year old bun stayed at Moonfleet Boarding over Christmas and I cannot fault anything. Lovely friendly family, extremely professional and helpful. Our pampered animal lives in an inside cage and is part of our family and Francine kindly had him stay inside with them too. This way he was as close as to being home as could be.   Drop off was really easy and we knew he was safely cared for. Much better than being at home on his own with someone just popping in!  Brilliant service, no faults at all and we will definitely be using them again – thanks! Laura

My 2 house bunnies Lily and Pickle stayed with Francine and her family this Summer. I felt very happy to leave them with such a caring family. The cage was large and plentiful with everything they could possibly need. They were in a safe summerhouse set in a gorgeous garden where they were let out in their runs every day. Their 2 daughters loved them and gave them company and cuddles at every opportunity. They sent pics and messages during the week which was lovely and set my mind at rest. Would highly recommend them also may I add that they are very reasonably priced and the buns had beautifully clean accommodation. 🙂 Joanne
