Our guesthouse is exclusively for indoor companions.

You will see loads of boarding options for your furry companion in stacked hutches outdoors and even indoors.
That is not what we do, our aim is to make sure your indoor companion has a safe, warm and homely environment with enough space to roam, and get lots of attention and pampering while on their relaxing break with us.

We have a room within our home with two suites dedicated for our little guests.

As you can imagine with just two suites, spaces are limited and we strictly operate on a first come first serve basis only, so please contact us ahead to check availability.

To confirm your booking with us, you will need to fill in a booking form electronically with as much detail as possible of their daily routine, diet etc and send us a 50% non-refundable deposit.

As we stated above, we do not take in outdoor rabbits or encourage the habit of people having rabbits in 'solitary confinement' locked away in a hutch at the end of a garden. Rabbits confined outside are often forgotten and neglected.
Life confined in a hutch is boring, depressing, dangerous and stressful.
Solitary confinement is detrimental to health and happiness.
You will develop a deeper connection and relationship with your bunny when you live with him. Rabbits can be fully incorporated into family life, just like dogs and cats.
Each and every rabbit we have cared for has their own unique personality. And just like dogs or cats, you can develop their personality by sharing your home with them, spending time with them and caring for them like they're part of the family.
Please say no to outdoor & stacked hutches!!


For rabbits and guinea pigs, we have two suites, the Meadow suite and the Orchard suite. Each suite has a large cage (dimensions:L95 x W57 x H46 cm) with a secure enclosure around the cage.

**Your pet will not mix with any other little guests.**

For bunnies, I usually leave their cage open 24/7 so they can access their own enclosure at all times (unless specified otherwise).

We aim to give as much individual attention and care to our guests and hence we only board two pairs of rabbits / guinea pigs at a time.

We also accept other small animals i.e. hamsters, gerbils, rats, chinchillas, degus in their own cages.

We would recommend they stick to their regular diet, so please bring the pellets they normally eat and any treats they cant do without :)
We will provide litter/bedding, timothy hay, fresh greens and water daily.


They have access to their own secure enclosures at all times for exercise and play. We will spend as much quality time as possible with our guests. Please feel free to bring along their toys or items they love (if you can)!

Health & Hygiene:

We can only take rabbits that are vaccinated against Myxomatosis & RHD (Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease). You will need to bring proof of your rabbit’s vaccination with you.

We use plastic cages as these are more hygienic than the wooden ones. Cages cleaned regularly.

It is essential that you declare any current / previous illnesses that your pet has / had on our booking form so we are aware and prepared for any situation that might occur while you are away.

The nearest vet offers 24 hour care less than 10 minutes away in case of any problems with your pet. **Please note: In event of this happening, you will be liable for any vet fees as a result of this, and an invoice will be provided.**

Outstanding service! My rabbit Mr Bun Bun was perfectly looked after and loved his 2 week stay. We had previously used a different rabbit hotel and had a terrible experience so we were worried when we had to leave him again however there was no need to worry. Mr Bun Bun was treated exactly how we treat him at home. He had plenty of space to run around their house and wasn't locked in his cage! His house came back immaculately clean too! We received lots of great videos and pictures whilst we were away too! A huge thank you :)

Lovely to have a rabbit boarder who actually keeps them inside their house! My rabbit benji seemed to have a great time, got lots of fuss and space to roam free. I was kept fully informed of how he was doing. Without doubt I will be using the service again.

5 From Lianne on

Best caring ever! My rabbit was really happy! I could see it by day in the pictures and videos that Rachael send me, and also when I picked up him! There is a really homy place

5 From Alexandra on

We felt totally at ease as soon as we walked in to The Littlest Guesthouse, the room where Tinka stayed was clean, warm and cosy. I was a bit apprehensive leaving her with someone new as she's 10 years old and needs daily medication for arthritis but Rachel calmed my fears and had no problems whatsoever giving the medication. Great job, thank you Rachel!

5 From Monica on

Was great to know that our mini-lop Chewie was well looked after during his 3 night stay at The Littlest Guesthouse. Receiving regular updates and photos really helped put our mind at ease and relax during our time away. Great service, will be using again in the future.

5 From Alex on

Would massively recommend! They were so lovely and helpful. they updates and pictures and had a great set up for my difficult bunny! Would very much recommend. My bunny came back very happy (which is rare!)

5 From Natasha on

Brilliant! They looked after our pet Hamster whilst we were on holiday, providing him with excellent care and chatting daily with my 8 year old daughter on WhatsApp, sending her photos and videos of her beloved pet. Will definitely be using this service again and thoroughly recommend it to others.

5 From sb on

Thank you to The Littlest Guesthouse for taking care of my little Dori, she's a nervous bunny with new people and Rachael took extra care, time & attention plus I got lots of updates. An excellent clean and loving boarding place which is a home away from home for bunnies.

5 From Michelle on

Our rabbit Poppy had a great stay at The Littlest guesthouse. We were really happy with communication while we were away and the updates with pictures! She was well cared for and we couldn't recommend enough. We will be using again when we go away.

5 From Jayne Dexter on

Our precious bun Snowball stayed here for 3 days and as it was his first time at boarding, we were unsure about what to expect. However, Rachael looked after him like a pro and kept us updated with daily pictures. The suites are spacious and perfect for an indoor bunny who's used to free roaming. I also love it's only small furries here so no worries about cats/dogs. Highly recommend this place and actually look forward to boarding here again!

5 From Huda on

My rabbit biscuit stayed with the little guest house for three weeks. Rachel sends frequent videos and pictures and let's you know how your pet is getting on. Was really happy and would 100% Use them again

5 From Sam on

I have a gerbil and 2 guinea pigs and Rachel took very good care of them. I totally recommend them. Thanks a lot for the spot on service. Impressive!

5 From Adrian on

Great service. Rachael sent me regular pictures to let me know how my two rabbits were settling in. Would highly recommend. Thanks Rachael.

5 From Lisa on

I left my guineas with Rachael for 2 weeks while we were on holiday and they seemed to have a good time! I also really liked getting pictures of them every few days - a nice touch.

5 From Emily on

Thank you again Rachel! Archie had a lovely time weekend!

From Irene Russell on

Very attentive carers! I left two hamsters with Rachael last minute! I also received regular photos via whatsapp.

5 From Thomas Fine on

Great service from The Littlest Guesthouse from booking enquiry to collection. Responses to questions have been really quick. The update photos from while we were away were much appreciated as well. It's clear that they care about the animals that are staying with them. Next time we go away hopefully they will have space for our gerbils again.

5 From Liam W on

Thank you. To anyone else I would highly recommend Rachel's littlest guest house. Your pet will be well cared for and have a super time. She really loves little pets. Mussels had a good time and I enclose a photo of him helping me uppack !!!

5 From Jo Sadiq on

Penny has stayed at The Littlest Guesthouse twice now and has had a fantastic time both times - she never wants to come back home with me! Rachael and Tristan are both clearly animal lovers and Penny has been very well looked after each time, thank you!

From Dannii on

Had an absolutely amazing experience with "The Littlest Guesthouse". My hamster was cared for perfectly and I've got nothing bad to say about the experience. Would certainly recommend and use again!

5 From Chris Pettinga on

Thank you so much for taking care of my 2 gerbils for a whole month. You have made me feel so at ease, with replying to emails straight away and letting me know how they were doing with photos. I will 100% be using your services again. Thank you.

5 From Fatima M. on

I always leave my pet rabbit, Bobbi, at The Littlest Guesthouse whenever I go away. She's always well looked after in a safe and secure environment - and I get lovely photo updates!

5 From Debbie on

Thank you so much to The Littlest Guesthouse. Rosie our pet rabbit immediately felt at home. She was loved and cared for during her entire visit. Rachael was attentive and thorough and I would highly recommend them!

From Angela Kamiel on

I found the Littlest Guesthouse a great place to leave my bunny. It provided a spacious and secure enclosure with plenty of hay and toys, and I was also given updates and any queries were quickly answered. I would definitely use again in the future.

5 From Anna on

I am really happy with the service that I recieved at the littleguest house. I felt safe in the knowledge that both my rabbits would be well cared for and I felt that I could enjoy my holiday knowing that they would be taken care of. I would recommend the littleguest house because all information regarding care of rabbits is taken into account and procedures are followed, for example ensuring that your rabbits have been vacinated, appointments are kept and not cancelled, and it was lovely receiving pictures of my rabbits. I will continue to use the littleguest house.

From Amanda Slater on

Rachael is a kind person who takes care of the owner and the pet as well. I left my lionhead rabbit for the first time in a boarding kennel in last September, and I was a bit nervous for this reason. She sent me messages and pictures every day to keep me informed. :) My bunny was there again at Christmas time, and everything went well. Thank you Rachael! :)

5 From Noemi on

Having never used pet boarding before I was reticent and unsure. Found this option and made contact. I was reassured by fast and comprehensive responses. On dropping off my pet I realised I had nothing to worry about. My pet's hosts were caring, sensitive and very clearly 'animal people'. I cannot express how reassured and comfortable they made me feel. I returned a fortnight later to find my pet healthy, happy and spoiled rotten - exactly what he was used to. Great service and I will not hesitate to use them again. I can't recommend them highly enough.
