If you are coming from Bristol you are best to come over by Hinton Charterhouse and then on to the A36. Look for the Dilton Marsh turn off on the left shortly after you see the sign for Standerwick and after the going under the railway bridge. It is the B3099 but is not directly signed until you are almost past the turn off. Follow the road all the way through Dilton Marsh, then you will come to a series of 3 roundabouts, turn left at each one, even the one that says Westbury to the right. You will then come to two painted mini roundabouts (go straight across) and then a raised roundabout at a crossroads. Turn right here as this is Station Road, even although the misleading street name says Rosefield Way. We are about 100 yards further up on the right hand side, the first cream detached house next to a run of three bungalows. Please park clear of neighbours driveways.
If coming from the Filton side of Bristol, it is best to go on the M4 and take the turn off for Chippenham. Then follow the A350 until you come into Westbury itself. Keep to the A350, especially at the roundabout at The Hungry Horse Longs Arms Inn where you should turn left and continue following the signs for the A350. After about 4 minutes you will come right into Westbury and will approach a roundabout opposite a church. Turn right (following the signs for the West Wilts Trading Estate and the Railway Station) and go past the Police Station on the left, straight across the double mini roundabout, and we are about 100 yards further down on the left hand side. We are the last cream detached house before the run of 3 bungalows. Please park clear of the neighbours driveways.
If coming from Warminster direction, proceed along the Warminster Road into Westbury, and following the town centre signs turn left into Haynes Road. Go down the hill and across the mini roundabout and pedestrian crossing and keep left at the roundabout. Following the signs for the West Wilts Trading Estate and the Railway Station, you will go past the Police Station on the left, straight across the double mini roundabout, and we are about 100 yards further down on the left hand side. We are the last cream detached house before the run of 3 bungalows. Please park clear of the neighbours driveways.

Telephone Helpline – The answerphone will take messages 24 hours a day, and is downloaded regularly, but please don’t leave a message unless you are prepared to wait for my response (within 24 hours but usually sooner). I will intercept the call if I am nearby at the time a call comes in!
Rabbits for Re-homing – if you have an appointment to bring in an unwanted rabbit, please be aware that our vets thoroughly examine all the rabbits that come in to us, and a small number are sadly found to have significant dental disease. In such cases the vets usually make the decision to have the animal put to sleep. This is true also for any animal that has a non-curable disease or has a severe temperament issue that cannot be resolved. Otherwise, all the rabbits that are brought to us are neutered, vaccinated, matched into pairs (if not already matched), and are found suitable new homes. Single male guinea pigs are neutered and matched with females, and all other guinea pigs are re-homed in pairs or as match-ups for lonely other guinea pigs.
Adoptions – Make sure you read the adoption criteria regarding accommodation before you make an appointment to view rabbits or guinea pigs, and you will find it helpful to have a read of the rabbit care article or the guinea pig article too!
