About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsReptilesHamsters, Mice etc.

I am Claire and I run the Rotherhurst Small Pet Hotel in the Sussex countryside, offering holiday boarding for small pets. I have a llama, donkeys, chickens, pigs, ferrets, a dog and a cat and have been caring for animals for over 25 years. I work from home growing cut flowers and perennials. Please view our website for full details and more photos.


The Victorian brick built piggery has been specially converted into a light spacious kennel building. The rabbits and guinea pigs stay in large 6 x 3 feet custom made hutches. The building is locked at night.

Pets such as Budgies mice hamsters etc are kept within our own home ensuring a safe warm quiet environment for them to settle.


Here at the Rotherhurst Small Pet Hotel we believe in large spacious hutches and runs. Unable to find anything suitable we set about building our own so that our guests have access to plenty of space all the time.

Health & Hygiene:

Hutches and cages are cleaned daily. Fully disinfected, aired and dried between pets.

Food and water containers refreshed daily.

Frequent cuddles and grooming unless your pet is nervous of being handled.

All rabbits must have been vaccinated against Myxomatosis and Haemorrhagic Viral Disease (RHD1) (RDH2) at least one week before coming to stay. Please bring vaccination certificates with you.

Claire provides an exceptional service in a wonderful location. Our bunnies were well cared for in a lovely clean and spacious environment. We would highly recommend Claire's Small Pet Hotel and we have already made another booking with Claire.

I cannot praise the care our rabbit received highly enough. He had been very ill in the run up to my trip so, having decided at the last minute to board him rather than leave the responsibility with my husband (God forbid if anything had happened to him (the rabbit, not my husband:o)), I found this wonderful place. Claire went out of her way to ensure she was clear on Smudge's requirements and, on our return, he was happy and content and had obviously been looked after to the highest possible standards. This really is a home from home and comes highly recommended! Excellent!

I was so lucky to find this new pet hotel. Claire was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Henry was well cared for and very happy. I have already booked Henry's next holiday-I don't think it can come soon enough for him!
