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!
Respite Care for tortoises during the Covid 19 epidemic: If you need your tortoise caring for during the epidemic, we are offering a reduced rate service, please enquire for details.
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 - for tortoises.
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 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
