Dandelion Lodge is run by Mel Page who has decided to turn her home and garden into a holiday hotel for rabbits, guineapigs and other small animals. With over ten years experience of working and caring for a variety of animals you know they will be well looked after. Mel also has rabbits and guineapigs of her own and regularly volunteers at a local rabbit rescue providing foster care at home when required. She also knows how important space and exercise is for each individual so will ensure that each animal will get as much space and free run time as possible.

Based in Cinderford in the heart of the Forest of Dean we offer a friendly and secure holiday boarding service for all your small pets including guineapigs, rabbits, mice, hamsters and gerbils etc.  Accomodation is available both indoor and outdoors and we are open all year round. Prices start from as little as £3 a day.

Our services include, daily cleaning, feeding, exercising and grooming and we can even cater for specialised diet or medical needs. Although we mainly deal with small animals,we do occasionally have space to board toy dogs in which case our house is theirs so you will need to be used to other animals. We do not board large dogs or cats and all animals are exercised seperatly so there is no need to worry. Whether you are away for a few days or weeks you know your loved ones are in safe hands. We can also provide home visits but at present these are only available to clients in the Forest of Dean area.

What can i expect from boarding?

  • Homely accomodation suitable for species
  • Specially selected diets suitable for species
  •  Breakfast each morning with fresh veg and hay
  • Fresh water in a clean bottle or bowl
  • Special treats
  • Cleaning on a daily basis
  • Lots of exercise and toys so boredom isn't an issue
  • Plenty of love and cuddles

Can I bring my own cage? 


  • Yes as this ensures your loved one is in a familiar surrounding. We are happy to help you set up as long as we have the space.


Can I bring my own food?
  • Yes, again every pet has its own requirements and will prefer something familiar. If not they will be fed on science selective pellets plus fresh veg and lots of luscious hay.
What happens if my pet falls ill whilst in your care?
  • Should the worst happen your loved one will be taken to our local vets for treatment. Before boarding you will be asked to sign a form giving permission for us to carry out any veterinary treatment required. We will ring you before any treatment takes place and ask you to repay the vets bills on your return. 
Do you have a collection service / pet taxi?
  • At present a pet taxi service is only available locally in the Forest Of Dean. All other animals can be dropped of at the lodge between 8am and 9pm.

Aunty Mel provides everything my guinea pigs need, in fact i dont think they wanted to come home after their last visit. Fresh veg, fresh hay and plenty of run time in cavy castle, they loved it and the best thing is they dont charge for cuddles xx
