Bunny boarders small pet hotel Opened back in 2006, by myself Sarah , our large enclosed garden offers your pets a real holiday getaway ! , with an experienced ,caring handler and quality care for your rabbits and guinea-pigs
Bunny Boarders has 11 years of boarding rabbits and guineapigs under its belt
This is my full time job offering all day care to your small pets
Animals have been my life & passion for over 40 years with a whole range of animals during those years from small to large,with too many to mention !
We all need time to relax and have a holiday but finding that right person to look after your small pets is not always easy, as I have found myself , so by offering a home boarding service just for rabbits and guinea-pigs gives you peace of mind and a stress free holiday without having to ask friends or neighbours who may not be pet savy or who let you down at the last minute !
Being a member of the rabbit welfare association , I believe small pets should have large , spacious accomodation to suit their needs and size , we offer great value boarding for the size of our accommodations ,we provide all your pet needs for their holiday, should the need arise we are within reach of many good vets
Every year we welcome back our regular clients, and welcome new clients with their cherished pets , some have been kind enough to leave us reviews which is great as it assures me that a good service is being offered to our guests and their owners , please check out the guest reviews and see what you think for yourselves
we are happy to contact you via email or text message whilst you are away with pet updates, but we do not send photos or use social media, as the time is better used providing care to your pets during their holidays !
We do open all through the year, apart from our very occasional holidays, even bunny boarders need to put up their paws once in a while !
We only accept vaccinated rabbits to board with us as this is the responsible, safe thing to do for all guests boarding with us
The question most asked is how far in advance do we need to book our pets holiday, my answer is all school holidays are very busy so I would always recommend booking as soon as you have arranged your holiday, then we will not disappoint you or your pets
Just a £20 deposit will secure your holiday booking with us, the balance of payment is not due until they arrive for their holiday .We are happy for you to view before booking, but I do ask that you make an appointment as I am not always free to chat about your pets boarding needs., If you are happy after your viewing you will be asked to fill out a booking form with you and your pets details on, this along with your £20 deposit will secure your pets holiday with us.

I have used Bunny Boarders for a number of years now and have always been very happy with the care Sarah has provided. I recently left my 2 young rescue rabbits with her whilst we were on holiday and considering they are nervous, they settled in very quickly into their lovely deluxe surroundings. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah and Bunny Boarders to anyone looking for holiday accommodation for their small furries.

5 From helen Kane on

Excellent care of our two guineas over the last few years. Sarah is a real animal lover. Always confident that the guineas are in excellent hands and well cared for. Would highly recommend this small pet boarding hotel.

5 From Sandra on

Thanks once again Sarah for your wonderful care of my two piggies. A little bit of sulking in the car :) Bert and Ernie hope to see you soon.

5 From Elaine on

Thank you yet again for looking after bubbles. This is his sixth holiday with you this year. Bubbles had the luxury of a huge two tier hutch as week as access to a run in the day. You accommodate to every individual boarders needs. It gives us pack of mind knowing that he is getting cared for whilst away from home. Sarah is amazing, very very highly recommended

5 From Vicki Brookes on

Our house rabbit Fudge is always so well looked after when he comes to stay with Sarah. She is very attentive and the hutches are always lovely and clean. She even messages me to let me know how Fudge is doing! What a fabulous find!

5 From Jayne James on

Picked up my guineas about a week ago and I cannot thank Sarah enough for once again taking very good care of them. They love it at Bunny Boarders and as usual had a good sulk when I brought them home! So glad I found Sarah. Thank you once again.

5 From Elaine on

Can't recommend Sarah and her facilities enough. We have left our mini lop there twice and he always comes home as happy as when we left him. Sarah takes great time and effort to get to know each animal in her care and their needs.

5 From Mark on

Our 2 house rabbits Joe and Grace stay with Sarah 2 or 3 times a year in her brilliant indoor "bungalow" Sarah is always genuinely pleased to see them and we have always been delighted with her care and attention to our spoilt bunnies. Joe can have tummy problems and has to be watched closely and we know Sarah is with the bunnies and keeping an eye on them all the time. She always sets up their run nicely and they have different toys and set up to enjoy. She also lets them have fresh air in the garden too. We think they may enjoy us going away more then they let on!! We would not leave our rabbits with anyone else. Sarah is a genuine rabbit caring person.

5 From Heather Hovey on

I'm very happy to have found Sarah. I have left my bunny Dj several times with her already, and he always comes very happy and healthy. She is very insightful and I would highly recommend her.

From Carla Natário on

Just picked up my two guineas today and believe it or not they are sulking!!! Sarah has done a wonderful job of caring for them and I could not have asked for more. They obviously had a great time and been thoroughly spoilt, now their back with boring mum. I recommend this lady very highly. Thanks once again Sarah.

5 From Elaine on

My bunnies stayed here last year for 2 weeks and were so well looked after that didn't want to go back! lol. Sarah looked after them very well and all dietery requirements were met perfectly! They had a great hutch and plenty of room to run and helped to keep the grass down. Hopefully will be able to book them again for summer. So much easier than looking for someone to come and feed and clean the cage at home.

5 From Olga on

I would highly recommend Sarah and her Boarding facilities. By 2 bunnies spent 10 days with her, and they were very well looked after. I am quite fussy about who cares for my animals, but it was a great relief to know that they were in safe hands. One of my Rabbits is very naughty, and I was surprised that Sarah said she's have her back again! lol! Great accommodation, plenty of hay and correct feeding and clean facilities. Would highly recommend! The bunnies look forward to their next holiday with you. Thanks Sarah! :0) Dani, 'Rabbit & Rupert' x

5 From Dani Beaty on

My guinea pigs, Billie and Jessie, have regularly stayed at Bunny Boarders, and they love it! They are cared for so lovingly and are always happy there :)

5 From Megan on

Sarah has looked after our two bunnies on multiple occasions over the last year. She provides peace of mind while we are away, knowing our bunnies are safe and looked after to highest standard means we can relax and enjoy our holidays. We would recommend with confidence to anyone looking to board their bunnies. 'We absolutely love our time at the bunny hotel, we get lots of space to run around and Sarah gives us lots of toys to play with. We love running through the tunnels and playing hide and seek in the boxes' From Matilda&Sherlock

5 From Matilda and Sherlock on

Sarah has looked after our lovely bunnies several times and she is fantastic with them, they have big hutches and access to outside runs, she checks what type of food they like and how they like their water etc, and she is able to tell you about their personalities when you return so you can really tell she has a bond with your bunnies, i would highly recommend her :)

5 From Bell on

Sarah has lovingly cared for our various housebunnies and guinea pigs over many years .It is such a weight off my mind while away to know that my cherished pets are being cared for so beautifully, they always seem to have enjoyed their holiday with auntie sarah.keep up the good work.

From karen dodd on

My Rabbit is looking forward to his fourth year at Bunny Boarders. He is well looked after, we can go away with peace of mind that he is in safe hands.

5 From Vicki B on

Our rabbit has stayed at Bunny Boarders a few times over the last two years, Pumpkin is always well looked after, the hutches are spacious and Pumpkin gets plenty of exercise and toys to play with, he always gets grumpy upon his return home after his stay! Sarah who owns Bunny Boarders is fantastic with the animals and treats them all as though they are her own. I thoroughly recommend Bunny Boarders to anyone who has small animals.

5 From Julie, Madie and Pumpkin on

I cannot recommend Bunny Boarders highly enough, it's Brilliant! My house bunny Smokie loves it there, as soon as she arrives you see her relax and say..."at last peace, good food, love and other bunnies to chat too". I can go away safe in the knowledge she is very very well looked after

5 From Sharon Cooper on

Sarah has looked after Bramble, Tinks and Bow Bow for the past 2 years. I trust her implicitly and can enjoy my holiday in knowledge that they are being taken good care of

5 From Julie Cotter on

Sarah has looked after our house rabbit, Barney, on many occasions in the last 4 years. Despite his difficult (and at times aggressive) temperament, she has always handled him wonderfully well. She treats each bunny as an individual character and does everything possible to make Bunny Boarders a 'home from home'.

5 From Pam Martin on

Dave Bunny has stayed with Bunny Borders many times over the last 4 years. Sarah offers a wonderful, clean and friendly place for him to stay. He always returns home contented and cared for. A very happy bunny and owner.

5 From Natalie Frey on

Fan-bunny-tastic! lovely owner, caring and loves her animals. Our Rabbit came back happy and relaxed. So good knowing the pets been looked after by a bunny expert now, in good bunny company too.
