Apart from Chestnuts being a guesthouse, it is also home to Norah’s ark. This is where local people can leave their small furry animals, reptiles or birds when they go away on holiday or have a family occasion or for whatever reason their little pets need looked after for a few days.
Norah's Ark is a purpose-built, insulated and heated shed, fitted out with cages and vivariums. We can take rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, chinchillas plus reptiles and tortoises. Budgies, chickens and even geese have been amongst our pet guests.
In warm weather, we have outside runs to allow rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises to enjoy the grass outside. We do not allow animals to mix so no chance of any holiday romances!
Guests can also take advantage of this service. Those who don’t have anywhere at home they can safely leave their small pets are welcome to bring them along. Just arrange it at the time of booking, bring them in a carrying basket and they can then go into their own room in Norah’s Ark. Where we will provide their food and care.
