TORTOISE COTTAGE

For customers, preferring something a little less elaborate we have now introduced our Range of Tortoise Cottages. We have taken our distinctive Granddad Robs tortoise housing and reined it in a bit.

The Tortoise Cottage is available in the same size increments as our main range of tortoise housing. Please be assured we have neither compromised on the workmanship or materials, the Tortoise Cottages are constructed from MARINE grade 12mm thick ply which is neat, waterproof, very strong and very durable.

I have to confess that I am not a tortoise keeper. The tortoise housing and tortoise tables we build is the result of numerous tortoise keeper’s requesting bigger, smaller, wider, taller, coupled with their invaluable knowledge of what their tortoise wants and as the keeper what they need as well.
