About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsHamsters, Mice etc.

We are now taking bookings for indoor and outdoor boarding. Outdoor boarding will become available from 15th December 2017.

We are a residential, family business and started boarding pets in July 2014. We have cared for Guinea pigs since 1998 and Rabbits since 2003 and so are most experienced in rabbit and guinea pig care though we can also care for other small pets too such as: hamsters, gerbils, rats and small birds.
​Please note that we have not cared for chinchillas, degus or ferrets before. If you require boarding for any of these pet types we would be happy to care for them if you were to leave instructions of your pets daily care and bring all of the facilities that they will require with them.
We have cared for some exotic pets such as lizards and tortoises but rarely have these types of pets stay with us so if you require boarding for your exotic pet you must leave instructions on your pets daily care and also note that we do not have the proper facilities for these pet types ready on site.

Boarding pets will be given plenty of attention as there will be only 8 lots of outdoor boarding rabbits/guinea pigs and 4-5 lots of indoor pets maximum staying at a time. They will be treated as individuals and cared for down to their personal needs.


Outdoor boarding pets will be kept safe in a locked summer house away from any preditors such as foxes and out of the direct cold, wind, rain, snow and sun.

We have available to book-

Spare 120cm cages – Suitable for two guinea pigs or one small rabbit.

140cm cages– Suitable for up to three guinea pigs or one medium sized rabbit.

160cm cage– Suitable for two small to medium sized rabbits or one large rabbit.

6ft Single hutch- Suitable for one large rabbit or two medium to large sized rabbits.

8ft Single Hutch- Suitable for two large rabbits.

6ft Double hutch (two floors)- Suitable for up to four medium sized rabbits.

8ft Double Hutch (two floors)- Suitable for up to four large rabbits.

Two 140cm cages or you may bring your own indoor cage if we have space.

All rabbits and guinea pigs will also have access to our large outdoor runs which measure 12ft x 5ft, 10ft x 5ft and 8ft x 5ft, they will get at least 4 hours exercise every day or more if there are fewer boarders.

Small pets such as hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, birds etc will be kept in the house in their own cage.


Rabbits & guinea pigs will get their daily exercise in our home built 8 ft x 5 ft run and 10 ft x 5 ft run if you wish them to. We have covers and domes for the runs so pets will still be sheltered from the direct wind, rain and sun.

Indoor rabbits will exercise in our indoor boarding room or kitchen for a few hours, separately and will be supervised at all times because of this they will not be out of their cage for all of the day as I have to give my equal attention to other boarding pets. They are also able to exercise in the runs outdoors.

Health & Hygiene:

We would be happier if rabbits were vaccinated against Myxomatosis and VHD.

All pets will exercise and be housed separatly unless they are bonded from the same household.

All rabbit and guinea pig hutches/cages will be cleaned out twice a week with disinfectant. Litter trays will be changed daily.

Small Pet Boarding Prices

Please note that we do not charge per night, we charge on the day of arrival until the day that you pick up your pet. This means that you must pick up your pet on the extact date you have given us when booking e.g. if you have booked 1st Jan - 5th Jan you must pick your pet up on the 5th Jan not the 6th Jan. We are quite flexible with drop off and pick up times, this can be any time between 9.00-8.30pm other than if on the off chance we are out or have other customers arriving at the same time.

Please make sure that you select a preferred hutch/cage for your pet when booking and then we can give you a total cost. Thank you.

Charlotte is the kindest and most loving surrogate mum for my precious rabbit! I feel that she is loved and given so much attention when staying. We get regular updates and pictures and I feel happy and content that she is well when away. Thanks again charlotte 😃

Boarders Response:Thanks so much! :) x

Reggie & Ralphy have stayed twice this summer with Charlotte. Ralphy is an indoor rabbit & can be a bit mischievous, but Charlotte was happy to welcome him back (phew). Fortunately Reggie is an angel. Both bunnies come home happy. Peace of mind makes our holiday all the more enjoyable. Would fully recommend.

Boarders Response:Thanks so much Anne! I have really enjoyed taking care of the bunnies :)

I have been taking my rabbits to pippin pet boarding for a few years. Charlotte is very loving and caring to them and they are very well looked after. She always goes the extra mile to check they stay healthy and send messages to let you know they are ok. They enjoy their holiday as much as us!!

I've been coming here for about 2 years now and the service they provide are absolutely fantastic. So accommodating for my numerous pets that come here and they absolutely love it. Reasonably priced and a lovely environment for your pet to be. Couldn't recommend this place any more!!!! Love it!

Boarders Response:Thanks so much 😊 We always enjoy looking after Hope, Faith and Marvin of course! 🐰🐰🐹

Excellent service and looked after 7 year old Jasper very well. He was so content when I picked him up and had been brushed every day! Fantastic service, even sending photos and texts to me. We will definitely be back 🐰

Our pet rabbit (ralph) has stayed with Charlotte quite a few times . The service she offers is absolutely wonderful . Ralph always enjoys her stay & Charlotte is always very attentive & looks after her extremely well , highly recommended!

5 From Lindsay fitchett on

Nellie, our fussy house rabbit, stays with Charlotte on a regular basis and receives exactly the same care and love she gets at home. It is Nellie’s second home and Charlotte always sends regular pictures and texts to let us know all is well. One time Nellie needed a vet ; Charlotte did not hesitate and promptly sorted everything ensuring Nellie stayed a very happy bunny. We know Nellie has fun there, is part of the family and is spoilt. We wouldn’t send her anywhere else.

5 From Sheila on
