Our Mission

Here at The Nature Nook, we aim to bring the highest quality ethically sourced pet supplies right to your front door.

Welcome to The Nature Nook

We know a lot of pet shops claim they’re different from all the others – but we really mean it! We promise that all of our products are safe, wholesome and healthy for the pets they are intended for, and we will only stock animals that come from ethical breeders.

And as you might be able to tell from the name, The Nature Nook isn’t just about pets! We firmly believe that owning pets is a great way of reconnecting with animals – and with the natural world in general – so we’ll also be selling products to encourage wildlife into your own back gardens.

Our online shop isn’t open yet, but keep checking back regularly. Make sure to also follow our blog, which will feature regular updates on our journey as we bring our vision of The Nature Nook to life, along with advice on how to care for your pets, conservation issues from around the world, and amazing facts about some of the wild animals that we share our planet with!

British Wildlife of the Week: Hazel Dormouse

The dormouse has a famously sleepy disposition. It’s an image that was cemented over 150 years ago when a very tired dormouse appeared in the well-known tea-party scene in Lewis Caroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. And unlike many animal reputations worldwide, this one doesn’t need exaggerating. No other British mammal sleeps for such a high…

The Sixth Extinction

Everyone’s favourite naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, returns to our screens tonight with a brand-new one-off documentary. Called Extinction: The Facts (a follow-up to last year’s Climate Change: The Facts), it will look at how human overpopulation, rampant over-consumption, the illegal wildlife trade, climate change, overfishing, pollution and land-use change are all driving the loss of…

British Wildlife of the Week: Sunfish

Large, lazy and very strange-looking – meet the ocean sunfish. This extraordinary animal is certainly very peculiarly-proportioned. Tall but vertically flattened, with a pale, circular body that seems to end abruptly behind its huge dorsal and anal fins, the sunfish almost looks as though it is simply a massive severed head with a short, frilly…
