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!
