for the sake of one week I would just leave them on their own, put two bowls of water in if it makes you feel better.

As long as your snake is healthy and has a good water supply then it will be fine for a week or two.

I would feed not the day before you go, but the day before that. INcase of snake crap, as already said, but imagine if it regurgitated.

I really wouldn't worry about it. As said above, make sure it has a full bowl of fresh water before you go, and frankly, don't give it a second thought. I'd certainly leave a yearling corn for a week like this with no worries.

I go away with work a lot and in general my housemate checks for poo and changes the water.

If I'm away more than a week, I have a tendency of putting her into care as my local reptile shop (Cheltenham) does boarding for £15 a week. Just gives me peace of mind really.

I normally leave mine at my local reptile centre they have lots of spare vivs in the back office and keep all the reptile's separate and use special reptile cleaner to clean out after each reptile goes home. They also change all the subsraite and spray for mites after ech one goes home.

Maybe you do not use this web anymore, since this post is from more than a decade ago...but I will give it a try!
I live in Cheltenham, is that store still open to the public? What's it's name?
Cheers!

As per previous posts, local pet shops are a good bet, but I’d make sure you trust them and really check that their animals for sale are in top shape. There’s one near us that sells a few reptiles as well as fish, but it’s not great in terms of care and animal condition. Personal choice, but I wouldn’t leave anything in their care...
