Tortoise Bed and Breakfast


Tortoise BnB provides luxury holiday care, so you can enjoy your holiday, safe in the knowledge that your tortoise is enjoying theirs!


Peace of mind for you and your tortoise: Based in the Hertfordshire countryside near Redbourn, Tortoise BnB is run by me, Anne. When I'm not looking after tortoises I work at Nine Lives Vets as a receptionist.

The health and welfare of every tortoise is at the heart of Tortoise BnB. If a tortoise needs veterinary care during their stay, they will be taken to Nine Lives Vets the same day.

In addition, if you'd like your tortoise to have a health check, nail and beak trim, microchip or worm count, this can be arranged. (Normal veterinary fees apply)

In Summer:  Your tortoise can enjoy time in the organic wild flower garden, in an escape proof run, or stay indoors under heat and UV lights. For safety all tortoises are brought inside at night time, to sleep in spacious, individual tortoise tables or cages. 

In Winter: Non-hibernating tortoises, stay warm indoors in spacious individual tables or cages with appropriate heat and UV lamps.

Hibernation:   If you're anxious about hibernating your tortoise at home, a full hibernation service is available that includes 'wind down' and 'wake up'  - click here for further information
