Carolyn looked after my guinea pigs over Easter. Unfortunatey, during that time they both became quite ill and she was amazing- she noticed immediately that they weren’t their normal selves, took them to the vet, got meds for them, gave them their meds, gave them baths, cared for them beautifully and let me know what was going on without bombarding me with too much information or causing me worry whilst I was away. She really went over and above, as ever. Can’t ask for more – Juliette
Very good, our guineas are always happy to stay here – Simon Oct 23
Once again, my trio of guinea pigs (one of which – Pumpkin  was adopted from here) were superbly cared for by Caz. Her knowledge of guinea pigs is brilliant and I wouldn’t board them anywhere else. They are always sparkling and happy when I go to collect them. Her care is exemplary like they are her own. Thank you  – look forward to seeing you again. 😀 – Janine
Thank you very much for having Crumble, she looks like she has had a wonderful time and so sweet to hear that she was sleeping next to the other guinea pig! We would be keen to get another if you have a neutered boar. Thanks for everything, you have a very special way with them! – Rachel Sept 23
Another happy staycation at Carolyn’s for my Guinea pigs Aurora and Wiggy Piggy. They were hosted in a large, clean cage, with time on the grass, and fed according to their habits and preferences. They came back all shiny and groomed. Leaving your pets in safe and caring hands you trust, is priceless. Chiara Aug 23
A fantastic place to leave your small animals. Lic rabbit has a lovely time there while we go away _ Deborah Aug 2023
As ever Carolyn took such great care of our guinea pigs. They always come back happy and healthy and she takes the time to tell us about their stay and about how they have been. – Juliette Aug 23
Caz is brilliant with the guineas and took great care of our two girls. Highly recommended – Sarah July 23
This is a lovely place. I trust Carolyn to take good care of my animals. I have also adopted 2 guinea pigs from her rescue service. – Kathleen July 23
Home from home. Carolyn looked after our recently bereaved piggy while we went on holiday. Her attention to detail was so reassuring (eg our piggy’s preferences and where she might be most comfortable socially for her accommodation) and was also willing to clean daily an ulcer that our pig had developed before her visit. We were able to be in touch by whatsapp for an update while we were away which was great. We could also relax in the knowledge that her accommodation had air conditioning if necessary and she could have turns outside on the grass. Top marks for care – Carolyn and her team clearly just love guinea pigs! Thoroughly recommend. – Cathy July 23
Once again a perfect holiday home for our elderly tortoise, Caz and her team looked after him brilliantly giving us peace of mind ,5 stars all round – Sue June 23
Thank you so very much for looking after my trio of characters (guinea pigs). Their care, as always was fantastic.
Given the first class care they receive I can relax and enjoy my time away, no niggling worries in the back of my mind as I know they are happy and so well looked after. 
This is the 4th or 5th time I’ve boarded them here and I wouldn’t place them anywhere else.
Caz is so experienced with guinea pigs I cannot recommend her highly enough,  she is a star, they come home healthy, happy, bright eyed and shiny. Thank you, you are very much appreciated 🤗😃 – Janine June 23
Hi, the tortioses had a lovely holiday and were well looked after – Andrea May 23
Hi Carolyn, just want to thank you again for taking care of the guinea pigs. Fins eye is almost completely healed now and he’s actually become a bit more social since staying with you. I’m am so grateful for the amount care and attention you have given them. – Ana March 2023
My 2 guinea pigs Poppy and Daisy came to stay over half term- they have stayed regularly since they were tiny. As ever, Carolyn looked after them brilliantly, they were very happy and healthy when I came to pick them up, a little disappointed that they had to leave all their other guinea pig friends.  Carolyn always looks after them so carefully and is full of advice when I come to collect them. I’m always really happy to leave them with her – Juliette Feb 23

I adopted a Guinea pig from this rescue and more recently my guineas boarded there with Carolyn for a few days. The facility was clean, lovely clean hay smell, Guineas had appropriate space if not generous, they were offered a varied and healthy diet. Carolyn groomed one of my pigs who is long haired and cut their nails free of charge, and had them one additional day free of charge – just to say how much she ties this not just for money but also for love. I went there quite tense to leave my piggies with someone else, but left with total peace of mind. She also gave me great tips on nutrition as one of mine is rather round. I 100% recommend her and my only disappointment is that she can’t board my cats too 🙂 – Chiara Jan 23

Many thanks for giving my bunnies a lovely holiday. Always happy to leave them with you and I know they have a great time. – Kirsty Aug 2022

Thank you so much for looking after Sammy Tortoise while we were away. Sammy was very well cared for and came home refreshed and ready to charge round the garden and find all his favourite places! I am so pleased to have found Ashtead Pet Boarding and Sammy is already looking forward to his holiday next year 😊 – Geraldine Aug 2022

First time boarding my pair of girls (guinea pigs) and I have to say Carolyn was fantastic. They were originally booked in for ten days, however, due to a family crisis situation that arose, Carolyn looked after them for me for a total of three weeks. Not only did she help me out, but the quality of their care was exceptional, meeting their needs in every way and providing updates. Carolyn is a very caring soul, also very knowledgeable in all things guinea pig relalated. I wouldn’t go anywhere else to board my munchkins. Thank you so very much – Janine May 22

Our Timmy tortoise stayed for a couple of nights and we feel he enjoyed every minute. He stayed in his own run with hutch and we felt that he was very well cared for. Timmy will definitely be staying again and we would recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding – John, May 22

Thank you so much for looking after our 4 tortioses, they had a great holiday with you. – Andrea May 2022

Our elderly tortoise has just had his holiday with ashtead pet boarding I can thoroughly recommend Caz who is very caring and professional we were at complete ease leaving him in her care we even got holiday snaps of him enjoying himself! 5 stars all round – Sue May 22

Carolyn gives her boarders the care and attention like they are her own. I feel reassured when leaving my guinea pig with her and don’t worry about it. She also gives positive help and information from her wealth of knowledge. Thank you – R April 22

I just wanted to thank you for all your help. I don’t know what I would have done without you and all your advice ❤️ thank you so much for taking all my piggies into the Rescue (6 boys from surprise litters!) and taking such good care of them. – Winter/Spring 2022

Thank you so much for taking such good care of our two boys, they were calm and happy when we collected them and I am sure they had a great holiday with you!
Thanks again – Rachel April 22

Carolyn gives her boarders the care and attention like they are her own. I feel reassured when leaving my guinea pig with her and don’t worry about it. She also gives positive help and information from her wealth of knowledge. Thank you – Rekha T April 22

“Another wonderful stay at Ashtead Pet Boarding, with Carolyn just the most wonderful, knowledgeable and caring person. Our two girl piggies always settle in straight away and Carolyn is fantastic at handling in particular our elder piggy’s medical requirement.  They always come back healthy and happy, and we get to relax knowing they are in very safe hands.  Thank you so much Carolyn and Ashtead Pet Boarding! – Mrs Laud, Cobham”.

As usual, our little guinea pig received great care while staying with Carolyn. On top of it, she always gives us very valuable advice on how to care for him at home. We highly recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding! – Nicolas & Coralie April 22
Carolyn was absolutely fantastic with our two guinea pigs, and in particular with one that wasn’t well. We cannot thank her enough. Carolyn kept us fully updated too while we were away which we really appreciated. Carolyn also helped one of our guinea pigs bond with another which was a success luckily! And again, we were kept updated regularly on this which was a great comfort to my children. I really cannot recommend Carolyn enough! – Emily Jan 22
Carolyn looked after my 2 guinea pigs for nearly a month. Carolyn sent me regular updates and even trimmed my long haired piggy’s hair to keep her clean. Ashtead guinea pig rescue and boarding is a wonderful place where all residents and guests are cared for, loved and safe. I love that the accommodation caters for indoor and outdoor pets too. My girls are going back for 2 weeks next month! Thank you Carolyn and your team of volunteers for looking after Rose and Fleur 💕 – Lisa Feb 22

The holiday care our pets (hamster and gerbils) have received at Ashtead Pet Boarding has been excellent. Carolyn is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares about the animals she looks after. She goes above and beyond to make sure they are well cared for. For example, one of our gerbils was depressed after his friend died just before we went away and Carolyn put in a lot of time and effort to make sure he was OK. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to make sure their pets are in good hands when they go on holiday. – Gill Dec 21

Carolyn was absolutely fantastic with our two guinea pigs, and in particular with one that wasn’t well. We cannot thank her enough. Carolyn kept us fully updated too while we were away which we really appreciated. Carolyn also helped one of our guinea pigs bond with another which was a success luckily! And again, we were kept updated regularly on this which was a great comfort to my children. I really cannot recommend Carolyn enough! – Emily Dec 21

We trust Caz implicitly, having returned each of our three piggies to full health pre-adoption. They had a cosy and comfortable stay at Ashtead Pet Boarding and we know they enjoyed the same affection as they receive at home. Thank you! – Rachel Nov 21

Love how easy it was to book, any and all questions answered. My guinea pigs had the best week and I received some gentle advice which was gratefully received. Caz knows her stuff and I have no problems recommending her – E Oct 21

We boarded our two piggies for 4 nights, we chose Ashtead because that’s where we adopted them. Carolyn takes great care of them, so much so we came home with an extra piggie!! Can’t recommend the place enough. Tim – Sept 21

Carolyn took such good care of my guinea pigs, Poppy and Daisy. She sent photos so I could see how they were doing which was a lovely touch- we miss them when we go away! Daisy developed an eye issue that Carolyn took care of immediately and effectively. J – Sept 21

What can I say? Caz loves guinea pigs. I would trust her 100% with my babies and I know that they are so looked after. No hesitation. Would recommend. J – Sept 21

Caz provided outstanding care to my guinea pigs, particularly one recovering from an operation. Pets enjoy air-conditioned luxury accommodation and nothing is too much trouble. Julia – Sept 21

Absolutely fantastic service as always. I can leave my two pets and go on holiday and relax totally knowing they are in safe hands and well looked after. I would not take my pets anywhere else. Thank you Ashtead Pet Boarding. Sarah – Aug 21

Our piggies had a lovely stay and were well looked after by Carolyn. She has a great set up and would highly recommend it. K – Aug 21

We are so pleased to have found Ashtead Pet Boarding – our guinea pigs stayed here while we were away and loved it! Such friendly and dedicated staff and service, the children loved seeing a photo of their pets while away. We will definitely be back again, big thank you. B- Aug 21

Carolyn has done a great job of looking after our tortoise for several years now whenever we go away, and this time was no exception, thank you! Alison – July 21

What is so great about leaving my guinea pigs with Carolyn is that I know that they’re in safe, capable, knowledgeable hands and that they’ll be looked after brilliantly. Miranda-Jane, Cookie and Liam Wilde always have a great time and Carolyn understands them perfectly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding. You’ll get happy, cared-for pigs and peace of mind. Carolyn’s great at piggly manicures, too! Louise E – July 21

Great service provided by Carolyn yet again, but this time it was for my rex rabbit. Who turned up pretty scared but clearly enjoyed his stay. Always reassured by Carolyns updates & the care shown to my pets. Would definitely recommend her services. Thank you. Anne – July 21

We have used Ashtead Pet Boarding for 4 years. Our 2 precious guinea pigs get looked after as if they are Carolyn’s own. She is very caring, knowledgeable and provides excellent boarding facilities. Highly recommended. R – June 21

Carolyn did a fantastic job at looking after our two young guinea pigs. It was the first time they had stayed away from home so my daughter was particularly anxious but Carolyn was great at sending us regular communications and photos to reassure her. Carolyn clearly loves animals and is very knowledgeable, and I would definitely recommend Carolyn’s as somewhere to leave your pets if you go away. Emily – June 21

My tortoise stayed with Carolyn for ten days recently. Carolyn was very knowledgeable about tortoises and asked lots of questions about her likes/dislikes before her stay. I received updates and pictures of her during her stay which was lovely. I would definitely use Ashtead Boarding again in the future. Jo – June 21

Monty absolutely loves his stays with “auntie Caz” and the other guineas. He literally can’t wait to go again. Thank you, Caz for taking care of my boy better than I do myself! Highly recommended pet boarding service. Steph – June 21

Our 2 guinea pigs had their first stay with Carolyn last month, and were well looked after and we had pics and video updates while we were away. Definitely recommend! We will be booking again! Thank you Emma – June 21

Always top service. Healthy, happy piggies. Thank you very much! – S – May 2021

Carolyn could not be a more wonderful carer of our two little girl piggies.  They are beautifully looked after and always happy to go there for their ‘holidays’.   Carolyn cares passionately about guinea pigs, is extremely knowledgeable and is also excellent on the client management side of the business, confirming bookings quickly and communicating promptly with customers.  A brilliant service all round. – Mrs S Laud April 2021

Caz has cared for our piggies a couple of times now whilst we have been on holidays, she is very attentive to them, gives us good advice on how best to care for them and I am sure they love being spoilt! Definitely recommend to anyone looking for pet boarding.- Kerrie April 2021

My guinea pigs have been going to Ashtead Pet Boarding for a few years now and they honestly come back looking healthier and happier than when I leave them! (Perhaps they enjoy it there more than at home!) Caz always goes beyond what I would expect with her care and attention, grooming them where needed and making sure the three of them get enough grass time in the summer. I have two girls who live separately to the boy piggie, and she also gives them time to see each other, which they love. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this place to other animal owners. I am always so happy to leave them there – it is very clean, tidy, and they are always so well looked after. – Julia February 2021

Caz is an amazing, knowledgeable and caring lady . Would highly recommend her services. She helped us with a big piggy rescue and they have all found great homes .⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Sarah, Jan 2021

We have been leaving our daughters’ guinea pig at Ashtead Pet Boarding numerous times during holiday breaks over a couple of years and have always been very pleased with the level of care that Carolyn Tear is providing to her small residents (including our pet). We definitively recommend this pet boarding if you are living around Ashtead, Epsom, or Leatherhead. – Nicolas Nov 2020

My two girl piggies have boarded several times a year for the past four years at Ashtead Pet Boarding and I couldn’t rate Carolyn higher – she is so kind, knowledgeable, efficient, totally trustworthy and has an obvious and genuine love of animals and runs a very clean and organised business. Our guinea pigs come back very well cared for and are in very safe and loving hands with her. Thank you. – Sue Nov 2020

Our Tortoise spent a few days at Ashtead Pet Boarding and seemed very happy. he had his own hutch and run and seemed very content. Food was supplied, but we also gave some mallow and Romaine lettuce to help, which was appreciated. We even received a short video of him wandering around, which was nice. We will certainly be using Ashtead again and would thoroughly recommend. – John Oct 2020

My two piggies spent half term here, great to know they were in safe, experienced hands – we will return when holidays are allowed! – Becky Oct 2020

I have had guinea pigs for 20 years and Carolyn is the best holiday home for the pigsters that I’ve encountered. She’s so knowledgeable, caring and proactive in keeping my pigs safe, happy and healthy. I love getting the updates, which means I can relax, knowing the pigs are in such good hands. I’m also so grateful for her help and expertise in bonding new piglet Cookie with my old girl Miranda-Jane. I used to find pig introductions so stressful but Carolyn has taken care of that in her calm, expert way. Hugely recommended! – Louise Oct 2020

Just to say thanks very much for having our tortoises – Frank, Tabitha and Charlie last week. It was so reassuring to know that they were being so well looked after. – Kathy Sept 2020

My bunnies loved their stay. In fact, they looked disappointed to be back home! – Kirsty Aug 2020

Great service. My two boy bunnies love their time at Ashtead Pet Boarding. Always happy to leave them in Carolyn’s care – K July 2020

Carolyn is an amazing lady who is dedicated to her animals. She spent a great deal of time finding the right partner for our female Guinea Pig. We now have two love bugs in Peanut & Fluffy thanks to all Carolyn’s hard work and patience. Carolyn is always on hand if a problem arises no matter how big or small. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our booking at Ashtead Pet Boarding due to Covid 19 and our holiday being canceled but I will have no hesitation in making further bookings for the future for our Piggies as I know they will be in safe hands. – Natalie June 2020

We have used Ashtead Pet Boarding for our 2 guinea pigs for 3 years. What an amazing place and fantastic, dedicated person Carolyn is! Not only does she offer a safe, loving environment for your beloved pet but she is always so helpful with any questions. Highly recommended from me and my guinea pigs X – R June 2020

Caz was so knowledgeable and helpful when we looked into getting piggies. She spent lots of time telling us all the basics, found us two perfect piggies and has provided ongoing advice as and when we have needed it – highly recommend! – Karen June 2020

Carolyn provides an excellent adoption service. We now have a new friend for our single female guinea pig, Sugar. Neutered male, Giggie, has been bonded and they are now very happy together in their new home. This took time but was worth the wait.
They will be reunited with Carolyn as soon as we can go away on holiday, she has an super holiday boarding facility too.
I would encourage potential piggie owners to contact Carolyn and those who have benefitted from her work in rehoming can support her via her amazon wish list, a worthwhile cause. – Nicola June 2020…

I adopted my beautiful Rosie guinea pig from Carolyn at Ashtead Pet Boarding, the communication in the lead up to finally being able to collect her (due to lockdown restrictions) was amazing and Rosie was clearly being very well looked after, as I often got updates. I’m very happy with everything and Rosie has been a wonderful addition to the family 😊 – Mia June 2020


Ashtead Pet Boarding is absolutely brilliant! Carolyn is really kind and helpful and very knowledgeable about guinea pigs. She’s helped me out when I had various questions about my pigs and was just AMAZING to talk to when I was in the middle of a really brutal and stressful bonding experience. She’s given me lots of great suggestions and even offered to bond them at her place. I would wholeheartedly recommend her, thank you Carolyn! – Elsa June 2020

I have used Ashtead Pet Boarding twice and would highly recommend Caz. She was happy to let me come and have a look around before booking in my guineas. They were well cared for. I had pictures sent to me when I was away so I could see how they were which was lovely. Caz has a lot of knowledge about animals and I felt 100% happy to leave them with her. I was never rushed when bringing them or picking them up. I would certainly recommend. – Lianne June 2020

Carolyn is marvelous and knows her stuff! She has helped me out with guinea-pigs several times, both when I’ve needed a new friend for my guinea, and when there have been urgent freebies needing to go into rescue – Liz May 2020

Thanks so much, Carolyn. My daughter especially and I also feel really happy to see our guinea pig in such a good new home. P Mar 2020

Thank you so much for finding our guinea pigs a happy new home – Vicki March 2020

Our two buns recently stayed at Ashtead Pet Boarding and we could not have been happier with their stay, we have never left our bunnies with anyone before so were very nervous. Upon meeting Carolyn we were instantly happy to leave our buns with her. We felt silly turning up with practically a whole suitcase for our rabbits but she instantly put us at ease. We received photos and videos during their stay without even asking. And not to mention how clean and spacious their hutch/playing area was. We can’t recommend Carolyn enough, so much so we are currently looking at booking in a few more stays. Thank you so so much, our two buns had a fantastic time will be back 🙂  Thank you, – Phoebe and Aidan March 2020

For a number of years now we left our hamsters in Carolyn’s loving care, while we have been away. Always great, and the place overall is built with care and love. It really is a perfect choice for the owners of small animals. Thank you, Carolyn, once again! – Adi Jan 2020

We can highly recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding and will definitely use Carolyn‘s service again. Clean, organised and great facilities. Our pair of guinea pigs came back happy and healthy and we (the children in particular) also appreciated the occasional picture updates via WhatsApp while on vacation. Great service overall and all thumbs up from a very satisfied customer. – Christian Dec 2019

Superb. Really friendly and first class accommodation. Wouldn’t trust my piggies with anyone else. – Sept 19

Took my little Syrian hamster for a weekend I was away, Carolyn was professional and accommodating and made my experience a good one. Two five star reviews, one from me and one from my hamster! – Phillip Sept 19

I left my 2 guinea pigs with Carolyn at Ashtead Pet Boarding in August. We had had the Piggies since May and had still not handled them although we were hand feeding them. The minute we arrived and met Carolyn we knew out Piggies would be in good hands. She has an amazing facility and clearly cares about the pets in her care. Whilst we were away Carolyn made sure that they were picked up and handled and had lap time every day so that they would get used to it. She sent us regular photos which we all enjoyed seeing whilst we were away. Our Piggies had a really great time at Ashtead Pet Boarding and were in great health when we collected them and now we are picking them up and petting them and popping them into their outdoor run every day. I feel that Carolyn took care of out Piggies over and above my expectations and I’m sure they are looking forward to their next holiday there. – J Aug 2019

I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for Tots the tortoise‘s mini holiday with you.  It really amazed me how much you went out of your way to research and make his stay as comfortable as possible.  Thanks also for accommodating his 2nd stay at such short notice.  I won’t hesitate to recommend you!!!!! – Emma Aug 2019

As usual, Pinkie the hamster had a very good stay with Carolyn. Appeared to be spoiled and came home with some additional food and treats. Would thoroughly recommend this boarding kennels.- Anne August 19

My guinea pig has just had her fourth holiday at Ashtead Pet Boarding, and once again received a five star service. When I come to pick her up I always get the feeling she’d rather stay with Carolyn than come home – Julia June 19

Have always boarded our guinea pigs at Ashtead Pet Boarding. They are very well looked after, great set up and care. Highly recommended – Net Aug 2019

Our rabbits Toffee and Cupcake have just returned from a 5 day Luxury Break staying with Carolyn. I know if they were given the choice, they definitely wouldn’t have wanted to come home. The perfect environment, coupled with care and attention to detail is what Carolyn offers. That means a lot to us, we can go away on a break knowing full well that our rabs are properly looked after. Thanks as always Carolyn. See you in the Summer. – Gary March 2019

Freddie has just returned from his latest relaxing stay at the Ashtead Pet Boarding piggie spa hotel where, as ever, he received exemplary care and attention from Carolyn. Everything is easy from communications, arrangement of suitable drop/pick up and the genuine interest and love that she has for our furry friends. Freddie is already asking us when we’re next on holiday. – Stu April 2019

Superb friendly place to send your small pets on holiday, whilst you go on holiday – R 2019

Carolyn has been absolutely brilliant with our guinea pigs when looking after them. She is so caring towards all the animals in her care – and so we continue to travel quite some distance to use her services! Can’t recommend highly enough – thanks for all you do! – Simon 2019

Carolyn provides a fantastic service and goes far beyond a standard pet boarding service as she takes the time to get to know her guests and their personalities. I have complete confidence that my rabbit receives excellent care and attention whilst she’s there. – Clair Feb 19

Ashtead Pet Boarding is absolutely fantastic. Carolyn’s wealth of knowledge and level of care are both outstanding and we have been extremely happy to leave our tortoise with her on a number of occasions. Planning and attention to detail are key to Carolyn’s hassle-free service and we can’t recommend her highly enough. – Katrina Mar 19

Our two young guinea pigs have just been to stay with Carolyn. They looked like they had a lovely time and were very well looked after. We also got lots of great tips and loved the WhatsApp pic update. Thank you! – Vicky Feb 19

Carolyn at Ashtead Pet Boarding is absolutely great – she is really knowledgeable about caring for pets and so we know that our hamster is in great hands when we go away on holiday. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending APB – Karen Feb 19

Our tortoise has had a few happy holidays with Carolyn and has been well looked after every time. It’s not easy to find someone knowledgeable about tortoises and we had previously relied on family members, so it was fantastic to find Carolyn, and Asamoah won’t be going anywhere else if we are away! – Alison Feb 2019

Carolyn at Ashtead Pet Boarding is nothing short of fantastic. Her set up and dedication to animals is lovely. She looked after my hamster for just over 2 weeks and she kept in contact and I was sent a couple of pics too! Would highly recommend. – Laura Jan 19

Carolyn At Ashtead pet boarding is such a kind lovely lady, I know that whilst I am away my rabbit is spoilt rotten, she absolutely loves it there and I know I can go away with peace of mind that she is being well looked after. Jane – Jan 2019

It can be hard finding somewhere safe and reliable to leave your pets while you’re away, somewhere where you know they will be taken care of and you won’t have to worry, but this is exactly what I have found at Ashtead Pet Boarding! Carolyn takes great care of my guinea pigs even sending photos and texts to update us while we are away. In summer the girls can roam outside and they always have a clean heated indoor space too! – Jennifer Jan 2019

Hi everyone! Having peace of mind when the time comes to leave your pet, is so important. Finding a place is a stressful experience. Ashteadpetboarding is what I call, a safe and best house for my hamster. I know for sure that she is well looked after, by a team of people who care and love their guests”, furry or not, because all sorts of cute creatures find their way there. I was always pleased with all the aspects, from communication to updates on how the pet has settled. Also, the temperature is controlled for best comfort. Facebook page is full of amazing pictures and comments from Carolyn, which are so funny and happy. Thank you! Adi – Jan 2019

Ashtead pet boarding provides an amazing service for my pet rabbits. My rabbits are always loved and cared for as if they were their own pets. I don’t let anyone else look after my rabbits or Guiney pigs. I have visited many times and adopted guinea pigs from Ashtead pet boarding. I can’t recommend them enough –  Sarah Jan 2019

Our two little girl piggies could not be in safer hands. We have boarded them numerous times with Carolyn over the past two years and they are very well looked after in a clean, experienced and nurturing environment. Carolyn clearly loves all types of animals and I couldn’t be happier with the service she provides. A huge thanks on behalf of all our family. – Susannah Dec 2018

“Our tortoise Assamoah boarded with Carolyn for the first time last week, having previously been looked after by family members.  She/he (we aren’t sure) had a lovely time and was clearly well looked after, she has been very relaxed since coming home. It’s not easy to find people who know tortoises and the care they need but Carolyn has gone to the trouble of finding out and it’s clear she has a lot of knowledge.  Thank you!” – Alison, May 2018

“We have used Ashtead Pet Boarding for a number of years and always been very happy with the love and care given on our Guinea-pig‘s stay. She was a very shy Guinea-pig but always much more active and squeaky on her stays.” – K, April 2018

“This place is such a great place for any pet, while we have to be away. 
It is so great to have the peace of mind that your pet will be cared for and loved.
The whole experience was just what we so much wished for. Lyly the hamster loved it there, because she came back home relaxed, looking good and happy. Whole heartily recommend this place and I already have booked again for the summer. – Remus, April 2018

“We took our beautiful piggies to Carolyn to be rehomed as sadly we couldn’t keep them. Carolyn contacted me through an advert as she noticed we were giving them away and advised us of the dangers of doing this (they could be used to feed snakes!) – she offered to rehome our piggies or keep them if need be. She was kind and very understanding. We could not believe how wonderful the accommodation was for all her animals and we could tell that she would really care for them. Everything was so clean and Carolyn sent pictures showing us how happy they were and made sure they were eating what they liked and had what they needed. They were rehomed really quickly to keep a single piggie company but only after a trial period. We would thoroughly recommend Carolyn’s for a boarding or for advice regarding rehoming and feel really relieved that she contacted us. ” – Claire, Nov 17

“Carolyn is amazing at look after our guinea pigs when we go away and I feel totally comfortable leaving them in such safe hands. She has also recently helped us with advice and finding new Guinea pigs when one of ours died recently and we are incredibly grateful for her help and support. ” – Sam Nov 2017

“I cannot recommend Carolyn enough. I have adopted a Guinea pig from her and she has also been so kind in providing advice. Although I have not boarded my pigs and buns with her……. YET, I would not hesitate to as I have had a tour of the ‘hotel’ and more importantly she clearly loves all the animals in her care just as much as the owners do!” – Tracey Nov 2017

Our two young guinea pigs went to stay at Ashtead Pet Boarding over the summer- it was like taking them to a five-star hotel! They had comfortable, clean hutches in purpose built indoor housing, with outdoor runs in the garden. Ashtead Pet Boarding is an extremely well-run boarding facility, and Caz is so knowledgeable about the care of these animals. I would have no hesitation in recommending wholeheartedly. It is a wonderful environment for a pet, and whilst away we were able to enjoy our holiday, confident the guinea pigs were being cared for in a lovely environment by Caz who shows genuine care for these pets. – Katie August 2017

I picked up our two boy guinea pigs today from Ashtead Pet boarding.They have stayed there twice now. I would not go anywhere else.The animals are very well looked after, you can go on holiday and relax knowing your pets are going to be cared for and are safe. Carolyn is great, I would highly recommend using. – Estelle July 2017

We’ve just returned from our holidays and picked up our guinea pig from Caz. The care she gives is second to none and we’d 100% recommend her! From booking to delivery through being away to pick up it has all been so easy and stress-free. Thank you!! – Roz July 2017

“I thoroughly recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding…we boarded our 2 gerbils and hamster for the first time during the Easter hols, and I felt very reassured with Carolyn looking after them so well. She was very helpful and flexible about when we could collect, as we were traveling back from Scotland.  She sent us photos of them to us during our holiday too.” – Lucy, April 2017

I would be absolutely lost without Ashtead Pet Boarding, they are so kind and caring. My guinea pig is treated like one of their own and given so much love and attention. It really is 5-star care for your pet I cannot recommend them enough – Olivia April 2017

Our bunnies have just returned from another stay with Carolyn. One of them had lost a little weight over the last couple of months but with Carolyn’s love, care and attention, he’s put it all back on and is looking much happier in himself and rampaging around the house again. Can’t recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding highly enough. – Clair, Jan 2017

“My guinea pigs have been holidaying at APB for a couple of years now, and thoroughly enjoy it.  Not only are there extremely comfortable hutches for sleeping in, but the food is plentiful and tailored to their fussy habits.  During dry days, there are great outdoors facilities with plenty of room for running, grazing, chatting with other guests, or just snoozing in the sun.  The owner Carolyn is excellent and always provides food promptly when squeaked at.  Definitely a five-star establishment!” – Julia Sept 2016

“Our tortoise Theo spent a wonderful two weeks this summer with Carolyn at APB. He was very happy there and it is obvious to anyone who visits how much Carolyn loves animals and enjoys having them around. Now that we’ve found Carolyn, we wouldn’t consider anywhere else to board Theo in the future. ” – Lisa, Summer 2016

“Our 2 guinea pigs love it at Caz’s boarding kennel. It is a total pampering experience! Caz always checks the guinea pigs for mites and trims their nails. The hutches are spacious and the pigs are well fed and petted. They always come home calm and contented. Would definitely recommend.”Isabelle Sept 2016

“Fabulous boarders and very professional.  They take very good care of my daughter’s pet rats whenever we are away on holiday.” – Wayne Sept 2016

“My daughter loves her rabbit very much. She was very concerned about her boarding as this was the first time that she had been away from her. Whilst away on holiday we received an email with photographs from Carolyn showing that our bunny was in fine fettle! This personal touch meant so much to my daughter. Our rabbit, who is a very independent and determined lady, was given the very best of care. I recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding to everyone with a well-loved pet wanting to give them the best.” – James, Sept 2016

Hi, Carolyn has looked after my rabbit, twice now . Maisie has blocked tear ducts and is on medication , Carolyn has been absolutely fantastic with Maisie. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who needs their pets looked after –  Debbie, Sept 2016

“We were very pleased to have our bunnies stay for three weeks in June with Carolyn. On our initial visit she greeted us warmly, was very welcoming and spent as long as necessary answering our questions and explaining the rabbits routine and environment. While we were away she emailed us photos of Flopsy and Fudge, who looked very contented exploring their grassy run. They had plenty of space to move about both in the Bunny Mansion and in the run in the garden. When we collected them they were healthy and happy. We would definitely return our rabbits there again and would recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding to anyone looking for a secure, happy home for their bunnies, giving ease of mind to the owners while they are away.” –

“My bunnies have just returned from their holiday at Ashtead Pet Boarding. They look healthy, happy and relaxed and have a spring in their bounce. Thank you, Carolyn for taking such good care of them!” – Sarah, June 2016

Carolyn has looked after our rats on several occasions and has always been very organised and friendly and we have been very impressed by the continual upgrading of the pet housing facilities and the excellent care she provides.” Carrie – April 2016

“My two bunnies have enjoyed two visits to Carolyn now and we have already booked their summer stay as they are treated so well and have enjoyed their time there so much (very sad to come home). Facilities are excellent and Carolyn really cares for the animals staying with her. A perfect find.” Charlie – April 2016

“Our rabbits had an excellent holiday with Carolyn! She has a great set up and is very caring of her ‘guests’. Highly recommended.”  – Carole 12/1/16

“Carolyn at Ashtead Pet Boarding looked after our two gerbils for the first time for 3 weeks this summer. I can’t praise her highly enough for the level of care she gave to our family pets and for the fact that she took the time to answer all our queries and to show us around before we bought the gerbils to stay with her.” – Kate 6/10/15

I thoroughly recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding. Our two guinea pigs have stayed there on numerous occasions and the level of care is wonderful. I can completely switch off, knowing that the guinea pigs are being really well looked after.”Vanessa 5/10/15

“Carolyn has been looking after my 2 guinea pigs over years whenever I go away for the period of one week to 3 weeks. She really cares about animals and I can trust her 100%. Once one of my guinea pigs fell ill just before going away, Carolyn looked after her, gave her medication and kept in contact with my vet. Thanks to her, my holiday was not ruined. I can highly recommend APB. I recommend to book early though as it gets fully booked very quickly on holiday periods.” – Yukari 29/9/15

“Scruffles our Hamster was very well looked after. Carolyn followed my daughters instructions, sent email updates and photo’s. brilliant service and peace of mind for my Daughter! Would definitely use Again! – Sarah Sept 15

“Our two guinea pigs have just had their second holiday at Ashtead Pet Boarding. They had such a good time I’m sure they didn’t want to come home!” – Michelle July 2015

“I was so impressed with how our bunnies were looked after. They had plenty of exercise and a lot of fun! Plenty of digging and hopping about and they came home very relaxed. The owner is very knowledgeable, hard working and caring. I will definitely use Ashtead pet boarding again. I can’t thank Carolyn enough for looking after them so well.”Jacqui Sept 14

“Our rabbits have stayed with Carolyn on several occasions. I would highly recommend Ashtead Pet Boarding. The animals are really well cared for and I always know they are safe, well and happy whilst I’m away. – Sarah Sept 13

“Can’t recommend APB highly enough! Carolyn was great; helping when we found ourselves without pet care following a sudden holiday booking. We had not had our indoor bunny long so we had concerns about leaving her and our two Syrian hamsters, Nutty and Miko. We need not have worried; Willow was more than happy in the mansion and had her own holiday, as did our hamsters. Carolyn even kindly sent us photos and an update via email while we were away to reassure us. Thank you APB; we now have a great place to look after our animals.” – Tara Sept 12
