“We received our Horsfield tortoise a few weeks ago and she is already showing so much personality. She has really unique markings, nothing like what I’ve seen elsewhere. Whenever I’ve been unsure, Steve and Emma have been vocal about how I could ask for help/advice at anytime and have made me feel really comfortable. I would recommend purchasing from the tortoise den to everybody that I know who would be interested in a baby tortoise as the service I have received has been excellent”

I am extremely happy with the hermann tortoise I bought today the service was amazing Steve really helped me out and gave me lots of information. Never seen so many healthy happy tortoises so hard to choose just one!

Steve is a top guy, very helpful. I just received my western dwarf arrived fully healthy there's no problems what so ever. The tort was even active from the get go as well as eating which you rarley see when you receive a tort that's active and eating from the get go that means they have been well looked after to a high standard. Thats one tort 2 more to come, my enclosure was built by my self which is 5ft long, almost 3ft wide and 1ft high, apart from the themostat all the equipment is arcadia. It's fully installed with a arcadia twin T5 controller and habistat dimming thermostat which are mounted on the wall, reflectors on the T5's, heat lamp, I also installed 2 double sockets 1 socket per table the 2nd socket is for another tort table which will be identical to the one I've built. I also put furniture studs on the outside of the table. If your looking for a first tort or even wanting another then Steve is the place to go. Many thanks

We were looking to buy 2 tortoises but were unsure about what housing and equipment they needed. Helpful staff answered all our questions, this gave us confidence to buy. We bought 2 Horsfield’s tortoises and a large package which contained everything we needed.

Just had my baby Western Hermans delivered from The Tortoise Den today. Came well packaged and in rude health, immediately getting into exploring his new home. Steve has been great since before I had even put down a deposit over a month ago answering all questions I have had and remaining patient despite my (as proved here) constant and inane rambling. He even called to ensure Lovejoy arrived ok and to let me know I could get in touch with any further queries.....he may regret that though.

I would definitely recommend the tortoise den if you are looking to buy a tortoise. My marginated (Margie) is just perfect and loves her new outdoor house in the garden.


Just picked up my Herman's tortoise and couldn't have been happier with every aspect of my experience. The place was extremely clean, professional, there's a wide array of products and most importantly the tortoises were evidently highly looked after and healthy. I regretfully forget the guys name but he couldn't have been a nicer, more genuine person with a huge knowledge base of these little guys. I was given thorough answers to any questions I asked and was given every bit of advice I needed to provide perfect care. Aftercare is offered at all times and encouraged incase I have any more questions too! I'm literally over the moon and can't put into words how highly I recomend this place. If I want another or if any friends ask, here is where i'll be going back to. 10/10!!!

My two Horsfield tortoises arrived today with their large tortoise table package and I couldn’t be more pleased. I gave them a bath and set everything up, within 15 minutes Harry and Henry were away exploring their new home.

Callum, Northampton

We bought a Horsfield tortoise just over 8 years ago, she is still doing great and very much part of the family! Recently we purchased the larger tortoise table and larger outdoor run for her, so she has more space. Would 100% recommend.

Mr and Mrs Bishop

Having researched for ages, I got my Western Hermann Matilda from Steve. Extremely helpful, knowledgeable and patient to listen to all my questions. Matilda is perfect in every way and currently marching around her high quality tortoise table (also from Steve). Couldnt recommend more highly. Thank you 🐢

Janice Nicola

Leanne George

A few months ago we bought a Hermanns tortoise with the complete set up package and an outdoor run for her. She looked a bit lonely, so we recently bought another Hermanns tortoise and they are now the best of friends.

Steve and Sophia, Nottingham

Timmy our Horsfield tortoise is just gorgeous and draws quite a bit of attention, so much so that our visitors are coming to see him and not us anymore! On recommending The Tortoise Den we now have 6 Horsfield’s tortoises across our friends and family.
