From the moment we contacted Julia, as nervous first time pet owners we were worried about leaving our two young guinea pigs over christmas, we were put immediately at ease. She accomodated our request of having the girls inside and was very happy for me to come and see where they would be staying. Julia and her family were welcoming and clearly very knowledgable about guinea pigs and this put our minds at rest completely.
We are probably the fusiest owners ever, with the fusiest guinea pigs to boot, but Julia was nothing but understanding when i e-mailed her epic instructions on the food they like and the way they like their house set up. And she followed everything to the letter – she is so intent on making her guests feel at home, it is excellent.
Now the girls are back home it is clear that they have been looked after brilliantly; they both seem very happy and were clearly handled a lot as they seem friendlier then when we left them!.
Julia offers an excellent service – friendly, knowledgable, accomodating and completely reliable. We are in no doubt that we will be using her again – so reassuring that we have somewhere safe and reliable for the girls to go when we are away. I would heartily recommend Julia to anyone. Thank you Julia, see you very soon!.

I would like to thank you for the great care which you took with our two long-haired guinea pigs, Mischief and Bubbles. We were a bit nervous about the long duration of the stay (over two weeks), but they clearly had a great time. They came back very sociable, and in excellent health. We shall be contacting you again next time we go away as I know they will be really happy with you.

I just want to say a big thank you for looking after our 2 Rabbits & 3 Guinea Pigs. They were all very happy when I collected them all from you and have settled back into there hutches at home. Its really re assuring that when we go on holiday to know that there is someone like yourself that has a genuine love and care for animals and I felt completely relaxed and happy leaving them in your hands. I will certainly be using you again!

I was a bit apprehensive about leaving my two guinea pigs Tilly & Alfie when I went on holiday as I had never left them with anyone other than family before. When I went to visit Julia I was very impressed with the set up she had and her kind and caring attitude towards the animals in her care.
I felt much better about leaving my two and it seems they had a lovely time. They came back looking clean and healthy, from the photo’s Julia sent they seemed to have had alot of fun and I am sure did not miss me at all.

Julia looked after our guinea pig Pip while we were away for twelve nights in August 2011. She was brilliant. Very caring and thoughtful (our eight year old loved the emailed pictures of Pip on holiday!)She was very organised, professional and personal. We would definitely use her again.

A very big thank you for looking after guinea pigs Sooty, Sweep, Sage and rabbits Maggie and Jimmy. They were all looked after so well and i could see by the lovely photos you kindly sent they were very happy and content staying with you. You are highly recommended to friends. We will see you next year. Thank you again.
the last 2 weeks. They have come home looking fantastic and well cared for
as usual and very happy. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking
for someone to care for their pets whilst they are away. Thanks again
Julia and see you next time x x
our 2 long haired guinea pigs Itchy and Scratchy over the summer. Julia
was very welcoming and was happy to show us around the accommodation that
our guinea pigs would be staying in. All the hutches were very clean and
all the animals had large runs to play in and were clearly very happy.
Julia was very professional and asked lots of questions about how we
wanted our guinea pigs to be looked after and their individual needs.
going away. In previous years I have asked friends to look after them,
but after having to go through all the aggravation of moving the hutch,
run etc on the day before going away I realised this year that just
dropping them off at Julia’s where she had excellent accommodation already
waiting for them, was a far better option – she even emailed photos to us
of the guinea pigs whilst we were away!We will definitely be using Julia again for subsequent holidays and would
recommend her to anyone.
Thanks again Julia.
We have been searching for someone who we could trust to look after Cody Caramel on the internet. Those we spoke to on the phone never asked about Cody Caramel but instead let us know their availability and plans. We were not interested. The minuit we spoke to Julia we knew we had the right home for Cody Caramel for his holidays. Julia set everything out clearly and asked about Cody Caramel and what he liked and disliked.
We knew what to bring for his sojourn (stay) and were delighted to receive photos on our e-mail to keep us up to date. He looked absolutely fabulous when we collected him after nearly 2 weeks and he enjoyed socialising with his holiday friends too. We highly recommend Julia as she has dedicated her life to caring.
