Tortoise BnB

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


We are open for boarding - and taking bookings for 2022

All hand overs are taking place outside Tortoise BnB, with social distancing being respected and hand sanitiser available.


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'm growing weeds, plants and flowers - known as Speedy Weeds - that are sent by post for tortoises throughout the UK.

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 see by a vet the same day.

If you'd like your tortoise to have a health check, nail and beak trim or worm count during their stay, this can be arranged. 

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 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
