Ferrets are our business!

Luxury accommodation with en suite facilities, formal suppers and silver service. Blue Ferret Boarding offers ferret boarding for all those farents who want a break from the day-to-day, but want their fuzzies to have a break too!

Ferret Boarding Services

You wouldn’t put a cat in a kennels, nor put a dog in cattery, so where else should a ferret go than to dedicated, ferret-only boarding establishment?

We offer home-from-home boarding exclusively for ferrets, run by experienced ferret owners. We have both outdoor two-tier hutches and indoor cages, and a dedicated outside yard, complete with obstacle course, specifically designed for ferret play times.

We also offer a  door-to-door courier service especially for your ferret, helping to take the stress out of boarding your pet with us.

You can even have your ferret microchipped while they stay with us leaving you with one less thing on your to do list!

Some of our happy customers

Boarded my ferrets with Hannah when I went on vacation towards Christmas last year and couldn’t have been happier! We received updates and pics whenever we asked, they were well fed and accommodation was spacious, clean and comfortable. They were exercised regularly and for long enough, and had plenty of enrichment – don’t think they wanted to leave! 10/10!

Hannah and Kyle looked after our 2 ferrets wonderfully. Speaking to Hannah before I went away, I knew that they’d be in good hands. Their new pick-up service is a great idea and took a lot of pressure off us while we were getting ready to go away. Will be using again in the future!

I couldn't have been more happy with Blue Ferret Boarding. Both Hannah and Kyle were charming and were both extremely experienced and knowledgable about ferrets. Having owned them for many years they know their stuff and I felt completely safe leaving my little man with them. He was allowed to roam about and we even got a lovely video of him playing outside whilst we were away! All the ferrets are given time, love and play. To my delight there was also a lovely little photo and a little bottle of salmon oil as a present at the end! Couldn't be happier. I am sure I will use their service again in future!

Our ferrets were well looked after, as always. Ivy is going through a clingy phase and received the special extra attention and care she needs currently, even sleeping up Hannah’s sleeve! BFB was very accommodating when we missed our collection time due to horrendous traffic delays on our 320 mile homeward journey.

Hannah and Kyle provided the best care when I had a sick ferret and had to leave on a trip. They provided daily meds and even hand feeding when necessary and I knew my little girl was getting the best care. When picking her up again they provided emergency feeding solution for me to take home. The only place to go if you want the best care for your ferrets

We left our two ferrets in the care of Blue Ferret Boarding for a week. It was the first time we needed to leave them for so long, and we were blown away by the amazing care they received. I wouldn't trust anyone else with them now. It was such a relief knowing they were with people who know and adore ferrets just as much as we do! We'll definitely be boarding with them again!

We travelled 2.5 hours to have our business looked after by Hannah and Kyle and I'll do it again the next time we need ferret boarding! They've been so attentive to my 5 and their individual needs and have so obviously taken the time to learn each of their personalities. I felt so comfortable during my wedding and honeymoon that my motley crew were in safe, well educated hands and that should anything go wrong they knew what to do.

Lovely people that love ferrets as much as we do. Our Business of 5 was really well taken care of during our honeymoon. Personalised care is what we needed and we got it. Thank you Blue Ferret Boarding!

Kyle and Hannah were extremely friendly and knowledgeable when it came to looking after the fuzzy devils. As a first time ferret owner, they gave me some extremely useful advice on how to better care for my ferrets. For example, they suggested feeding them chicken wings/bones to help clean any plaque on their teeth, even providing information on the chicken they get, and the stores we could get it. I was anxious about sending my ferrets to a boarding place as I had previously asked friends to come over to look after them. However, my worries where instantly calmed when I met Kyle and Hannah, as well as their small business, and I believe that my ferrets were much, much happier to be staying with them. Overall it was a very positive experience, and I will definitely be using their services again!


In fact our customers are so happy that they'll travel from all over the country just to get here
