Debbie is a godsend. My wife and I have been using Happy Hoppers for years and I would find it hard to trust anyone else. Debbie clearer loves and cares for the animals she is in charge of. Thank you for looking after our bunny again this Christmas

5 From Tony on

As normal a huge thank you to Debbie, my bunnies are very happy to stay there and I do not worry about leaving them, five star accommodation with five star treatment, nothing is too much trouble for Debbie and I am so glad I have found her and they will.be visiting next year too, thank you Debbie, you run a fantastic boarding home and I would most definitely recommend xx

5 From Tracy Jones on

A fantastic place to send your furries! My Barney came home looking healthy and happy after a seven day stay at Happy Hoppers. I was impressed with his accommodation because he is a big boy (Continental Giant Rabbit) and Deb made sure he had a shed to himself and a nice run to get his exercise. I've booked for next year already and feel very happy I've found somewhere I'm really confident to send him too. Thanks Deb (and sorry Barney ate all the grass😂)

5 From Jo Ralph on

A beautiful holiday home for my bunnies. I was very happy to leave them with Deb. They came home and settle back to their normal routeen very quickly. We book again

5 From Kelly on

Left my 2 bunnies with happy hoppers for 12 nights, picked them up this morning looking shiny and bright :-) was very nervous as I have never left them before for so long but Debs made me feel very at ease from the moment I met her, also was amazingly quick at replying to my text messages for updates throughout my holiday. Both Bella and Jonah immediately settled in and enjoyed the space, I was extremely happy with the facilities as they could enjoy the same freedom there that they have at home. I would 100% recommend happy hoppers and am happy that I have found somewhere I feel comfortable leaving my fur babies again when I go away. Thank you so so much Debs! I enjoyed my holiday much more knowing my buddies were in safe hands xx

5 From Michelle HC on

Picked our girls up yesterday after 2 week holiday. They had been housed in a beautiful, large, walk-in coop in a wonderful huge garden. I would happily take them there again. They had laid every day, so had trays of eggs to bring home too - the neighbours were very grateful!

5 From Janice Reeve on

Debs looked after my two bunnies for 10 days when I moved just before Christmas. She has a brilliant set up for boarders and Holly and Ossie settled in really well. Debs kept me updated with photos and texts everyday and I knew they were in the best of hands as she is very experienced and knowledgeable with small furries. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Happy Hoppers. Thank you, Debs.

5 From Pauline Ayliffe on

We would like to say a big thank you to Happy Hoopers for taking such good care of our two piggies and three buns. Our babies are now home and we've never seen them so calm and relaxed. Thank you Debbie, we were able to enjoy our holiday knowing our babies were in good hands.

5 From Andre and Tanya on

This is my 2nd time using Happy Hoppers for my guinea pigs. Debbie is very friendly and welcoming and my piggies settled in in no time. One of my piggies is almost blind from cataracts and Debbie picked up on this immediately (very impressed) and so she was very sympathetic to her needs which I really appreciate as it's something I worry about. Lovely, immaculately kept hutches of a good size and always plenty of grass in the runs for outside time. I think my long haired guinea actually came back better groomed than when I left her. If I were a guinea pig/rabbit this is where I'd want to go for my holidays.

5 From Anna on

Happy Hoppers is situated in the most idyllic area, overlooking fields & countryside. Debbie herself is completely lovely, an absolute gem. I would not consider anyone else to care for my babies. I actually felt my two bunnies were disappointing to be home! Thank you Debbie x

5 From Marie Elizabeth on

I am a worrier and leave my bunnies very rarely. I went on a two week holiday and was especially worried as my buns are house rabbits and have free range of the house, no way di I need to worry if Debbie looking after them ,Lottie and Wilf settled in straight away. Wilf loved the tunnel and going outdoors and Lottie ate constantly. Lottie had been in for a dental prior to going into Debbie's and Debbie gave me complete confidence that they were in good, caring , capable hands and they were. Debbie kept me updated with how they were doing and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves at Happy Hoppers - I would highly recommned and I am so glad that I found Debbie - on picking them up and seeing them so relaxed and happy I have just booked them in for Christmas too. Happy Hoppers is a must for boarding - they are looked after like her own and Debbie is just wonderful - thank you very much Debbie - five stars without a doubt.

5 From Tracy on

I left my two bunny's Millie & Albert, and Pablo the guinea pig with Debbie for 2 weeks, I could not have found a better place for them to go to. They all had a lovely time, the exercise run was spacious for my bouncy rabbits, they were very relaxed and happy with their holiday home.

5 From Kerry on

My kids pet rabbit stayed for 4 days this month and i was so impressed with the care and set up that i have already booked him in again for our next break. Debbie is a lovely lady and i felt at ease leaving our pet here. Would recommend 100%

5 From Michaela on

This summer our pet rabbit stayed at happy hoppers for 2 weeks in complete luxury. He had a large hutch and plenty of outdoor running space which is what he is used to. Deb had mopsy's best interests at heart and asked lots of questions about his diet and hygiene and what behaviour was normal for him. Very attentive, Thank you Deb we will not hesitate to use H happy Hoppers again.

5 From n johnson on

We left our house rabbit Riley with Debbie at Happy Hoppers for 13 days when we went on holiday in Sept 2015. We had already done a long weekend trial run in June to see how he settled in so knew that he would be in safe hands. We could enjoy our holiday knowing that he would come home clean, happy and relaxed. Debbie looks after him as though he is her own and makes sure that she takes lots of information about his likes and dislikes and funny little habits before we go away. We miss him like crazy when we are away but know that he is being taken care of so we can enjoy our holiday without worrying about him. We wouldn't book a holiday now without checking first that Debbie has a space for Riley as we wouldn't leave him anywhere else.

5 From Christine Shannon on

My two rabbits, Bongo and Waffle, stayed at Happy Hoppers last week. I was so impressed with everything from the easy booking process to the large hutches with enormous outside spaces. The whole set-up is wonderful. Deb is just lovely and I knew my rabbits would be well cared for while we were away. They returned home happy and relaxed. I feel very lucky to have found Happy Hoppers and cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you Deb!

5 From Julie on

Very happy with rabbit accommodation. Plenty of room outside and access to indoor accommodation.

5 From Caroline Conway on

I recently boarded my bunny Nugget with Happy Hoppers and the service was great from start to finish. Very reasonably priced and made my break away much more enjoyable knowing that I could leave my rabbit with Debbie and that she would be very well looked after. I even text from holiday as I was missing Nugget so much and Debbie reassured me instantly. Fed, watered and cleaned daily with great sized cages and runs for lots of exercise. I had a very happy bunny and will definitely use Happy Hoppers again.

5 From Lauren Pettit on

Billy stayed at happy hoppers for 9 days. I was so impressed with the set up, his big cage and individual run. I could enjoy my holiday knowing he would have a great holiday too! Debbie was lovely and will definitely be using again in the future! Very happy piggie ☺.

5 From Vicki on

I boarded my 2 house bunnies Baxta & Betsi last week for 5 days - they came back happy & relaxed & you could tell they had been well looked after. Deb is really lovely and you can tell that she loves animals just from talking to her. The accommodation is five star & I would highly recommend this to anyone for their small furry you can relax on holiday knowing that they are being well cared for.. thank you very much Deb

5 From Tracey Minford on

My 2 bunnies Baxta & Betsi stayed at Happy Hoppers for 5 nights - they seem happy & relaxed upon their return home. Deb was really friendly & you can tell when meeting her that she loves animals & will take good care of your pets. Five star accommodation for any small furry, would recommend to anyone as you can relax on holiday knowing that your pets are safe & being looked after -will definitely use again thank u Deb xx

5 From Tracey Minford on

Bea spent a long weekend at Happy Hoppers and settled in immediately and was very happy, as were we with the care and facilities provided. Deb was so helpful and welcoming and make Bea's stay perfect. Due to her popularity we haven't be able to book again as she is full, but would recommend Happy Hoppers to everyone

5 From Vanessa Kidd on

I was very happy to leave my 3 guinea pigs with Deb. This was my first visit and she was very welcoming and friendly. Cages and runs really nice and all kept very clean. Have taken my guinea pigs to another place before, paid more money but not a patch on Debs. Highly recommend.

5 From Pauline Fowler on

We left our pair of rabbits to be looked after for several days while we upgraded their setup at home. Debbie was very friendly and helpful, and took great care of them. The outside runs are spacious and of high quality, and the hutches are a good size too. When we came to collect them, they were very relaxed and happy. They didn't want to leave! We would definitely recommend Happy Hoppers.

5 From Emma Watts on

Due to an unfortunate event with our normal rabbit sitter we needed to find somewhere to put our rabbit (Thomas) at short notice and we're very glad to find Deb and Happy Hoppers! Deb was very prompt in confirming the availability that we had requested for Thomas and within 10mins of my initial email Thomas was booked in, and the admin forms were also received promptly. It was also very good and reassuring to find out that Happy Hoppers ensures "guests" are fully vaccinated and also are able to clean themselves too which removes the possibility of illness. The drive out to HappyHoppers is pretty straight forward and easy, and the set up that Deb has is brilliant - so much so that I think Thomas set up at home needs some updating I spent 10-15mins talking to deb about thomas' routine and feeding plan and generally discussing thomas' behaviour and was glad to know that he was in good hands and within in 10mins of being dropped off Thomas was happily settled in his cage and even ventured to the outside run! Thomas was on the only guest staying at happy hoppers at that time so he was well looked after and fussed over by Deb, but when we came to pick him up Thomas was very happy running about in the outdoor run and has had no issues settling back in at home - although wasn't too sure about being put back in his carry case, and it almost seems as if he had a holiday aswell and will definitely be returning at some point in the future!!! In short if your looking for a trusting person who sincerely is interest in your rabbits well being then HappyHoppers is definitely the place to recommend

5 From Niall on

We left our two guinea pigs in Deb's very capable hands and wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone looking for small pet boarding. The accommodation is bright, with spacious hutches that are clean with lots of fresh hay bedding. Our two little fellows came home relaxed and healthy and we would certainly treat them to another holiday at Happy Hoppers next time we need someone to take care of them!

5 From Leo on

Very pleased with the friendly and professional service at Happy Hoppers. Our two guinea pigs were left with Debbie for ten days and were well looked after. All the animals we saw staying there, including ours, seemed relaxed and contented. Hutches and cages are spacious and clean with plenty of quality fresh bedding, and the outside runs are secure and a good size. Excellent service, and even though good quality feeds are used as standard, Debbie took great care to establish any particular dietary needs of our pets, including likes, dislikes, preferred feeding time, etc. Some human hotels could learn a thing or two from the service provided by Happy Hoppers! We will definitely feel confident leaving our pets here again next time we go away.

5 From Dave Curtis on

I left my precious rabbit Putney with Debs and he had a lovely cosy hutch and his own outside run. The whole place is beautifully clean and the facilities are first class. All feeding requirements were checked with me before I left him in Deb's capable hands. Putney came home relaxed and happy and we were both delighted with the care he received. I whole-heartedly recommend Happy Hoppers (and I'm sure Putney would also recommend it too!)

5 From Chris Curtis on

We have just left our two bunnies Alfie & Cliff with Deb. The accomodation was first class and Deb was extremely caring and helpful. We would definitely recommend Happy Hoppers.

5 From Tony & Tina on

Debbie operates a fantastic "pet hotel". A real home from home environment. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend "Happy Hoppers".

From TraceyH on

I left my 2 rabbits & hamster there for 3 weeks and they came back very happy & healthy. Deb runs a beautiful, kennel, very well maintained, secure, very spacious and I don't think they wanted to come home! My hamster is quite old, and Deb looked after him very well. He looked lovely and healthy when I collected him. I have used several kennels and never 100% happy but will definitely use Happy Hoppers again! :)

5 From Michelle Hilton on

HAPPY HOPPERS IS FAB!! I have used Happy Hoppers twice now for my two guinea pigs Max and Tilly and they LOVE it. Deb puts them out on the grass in lovely weather (with picturesque views of the Kent countryside) and they have fresh veg and a cleaned cage daily.... complete 5* luxury. I was always worried about who looks after my piggies when i go away, as they are so pampered; but Deb is so lovely and caring i will definitely be booking them in for some more holidays. I am so glad i found Happy Hoppers as it takes the stress out of going away knowing that they are so well looked after. Thank you so much Deb! :) xxx

5 From Sophie Taylor on

Such a lovely place! Immaculately clean and excellent facilities - tons of space. Pretty sure my rabbits Donnie and Josie did not want to come home! Deb (the lady who runs Happy Hoppers) clearly loves all the animals and enjoys providing the best of the best care. Can't recommend enough - Bunny Heaven!

5 From Julia Dray on

Left our 3 guineas here for 2 weeks and would recommend Happy Hoppers to everyone. Deb runs it like a hotel: fresh vegetables, every cage cleaned daily and lovely outdoor runs which was great for my boys as they live outside. Wonderful place.

5 From Lynn family on

Happy hoppers is brilliant!!. I left 3 guinea pigs in the Happy hoppers care and I think they had a mini holiday too. They were all well looked after. Facility's were amazing and guinea pigs get cleaned out daily. Debbie is really friendly and helpful and she is an animal enthusiast. I had many query's as I hadn't done pet boarding before and Debbie was very helpful with all of these. Thank-you happy hoppers :-). See you next time.

5 From Kat on

Fantastic service for both my rabbit and guinea pig.... Thank you!

5 From Mark Waite on

This place is amazing in every way! My main concern was that my rabbits got exercise daily and here they have their own tunnel into their own massive enclosure. It is also extremely clean. You can tell that Debbie is a keen and honest animal lover and I now feel happy to leave them...in fact they're getting a 5 star holiday too!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED *****

5 From C. Branch on

Excellent service throughout ... would definately recommend Happy Hoppers to small pet owners. Service used 17-24 February 2014.

5 From Robert Attwell on

My two little Guinea Pig rouges Buttercup and Daisy had the best 5 star holiday. Deb was wonderful and was so kind to keep them for me for an extra two days when I was to poorly to pick them up. They are now booked in for their summer holiday and I can assue everyone that I would not take them to anyone else. Photo next time Deb when Iv'e worked out how to do it!!! My sincere thanks Deb

5 From Gail Walker on

My family & I have used Happy Hoppers many times over the last 2 years. Debbie is so kind, caring and is all for the rabbits. The accommodation is excellently designed and the addition of the walk-in runs has really increased the standard. Our two rabbits Tom & Lily love Happy Hoppers, they hate the 30 minute journey there but settle down almost straight away. We are always greeted by Debbie when dropping or picking our rabbits up and we feel privileged to be using her service. Thank You Debbie!

5 From Shaun F on

Happy Hoppers came highly recommended by my sister when she used them for her rabbits boarding,so I gave my 3 guinea pigs to them for a one week stay. I had complete piece of mind and they were all looked after extremely well throughout their stay. Very clean hutches and they had their own large run outside too. I will now always use them for any future guinea boarding!

5 From Laura Lee on

Five star plus holiday home for my rabbit Muffin! She loved her stay at Happy Hoppers and I have definitely found her new holiday retreat. Highly recommended!

5 From Freya Saffell on

I placed my special bunny into the care of Happy Hoppers whilst we went away for our Summer holiday. I simply could not have found a more lovely person to watch over him & felt perfectly happy leaving him in Debbies charge. On our return Debbie had clearly taken the time to get to know Lucky, relating to us the many traits of his personality. Thank you so much. x

5 From Marie x on

I booked my two rabbits Stanley and Lily into Happy Hoppers for 19 nights while we had our family holiday. I thought I would be tearful on leaving them, however I knew they were going to be well looked after and safe and felt completely happy about leaving them. Deb is very caring and listened to me tell her all about their likes and dislikes and made notes all the time. I had a worry free holiday and when I collected Stanley and Lily they both looked happy and healthy and settled into home life again easily. They are now looking forward to their next stay.

5 From Karen Harlow on

Ronnie and Reggie, our two guinea pigs, stayed at Happy Hoppers for the weekend and had an absolutely fab time. The accommodation was absolutely amazing, spotlessly clean and with very spacious runs. The overall setting was wonderful. Very popular due to location and excellent facilities so book well in advance. 5 star service...thanks Debbie

From Mrs Cornwell on

We recently boarded our two rabbits here and we were very pleased. The hutches with attached runs are brilliant and provide so much space. Our rabbits seemed really well cared for and we would definitely use Happy Hoppers again.

5 From Katharine Woo on

I used Happy Hoppers for the first time this year. I was impressed by the accommodation provided for my elderly doe. Care was perfect and I will definitely use Deb's facilities again. Very well organised.

From Sandra on

Excellent care and exceptionally clean with good facilities for the small animals, both the indoor sleeping area and the outdoor runs. Deb is very nice to deal with and she has looked after both my elderly house rabbit and my 3 guinea pigs. I would highly recommend her.

5 From Karen on

Recently boarded my hamster for two weeks with Deb at Happy Hoppers. Was very pleased with the premises and the care that Deb took looking after Nel. She took note of everything I said about the way I feed and look after Nel and followed it precisely. Nel seemed to have enjoyed her stay and I will definitely take her there again.

5 From Gill Burton on

I cannot recommend Happy Hoppers highly enough. Deb is such an animal lover & my 2 rescue rabbits Albert (a New Zealand Giant White & Betsy his much smaller girlfriend) love it there. I have used twice already this year & they are already booked in 3 more times this year & once so far for next year. We will also be boarding our rescue hamsters with Debs. We had no worries at all whilst away & knew that our beloved pets wold be very well taken care of.

5 From claire on

we left our house rabbit Ollie at happy hoppers and we can say that he really enjoyed himself whilst we were away lorna and roger gillingham

From roger triggs on

Deb recently looked after my two Guinea Pigs: Piglet and Pork Chop while I went on holiday and I must say they had a luxury holiday of their own. She was very friendly and helpful and i felt comfortable leaving my g. pigs in her care. They were well cared for in spacious hutch and run together with a great menu and at a great price. My two guinea pigs loved it there and I will definitely always use Happy Hoppers in the future...5+ star :-) Perfect for them and would highly recommend to everyone :-D Thank you Deb!

5 From Leanne S on

We recently left Mrs Bunny and Gizmo at Happy Hoppers. While we were enjoying our holiday the two had a 5 star holiday of their own! Deb is such a sweet lady and we felt comfortable leaving our bunnies in her care as soon as we met her. We've already booked them in for a stay during our next holiday.

5 From Sebastian & Matt on

We recently left our two rabbits here when we went on a weekend break. The amount of space they were given was fantastic. The rabbits seemed very happy and relaxed when we took them home and it was obvious they had been looked after very well. I would highly recommend Happy Hoppers.

5 From Kate Woo on

Perfect for our two pigs who have stayed a few times now. Couldn't recommend them more, our boys even come back a little less naughty

5 From Danielle Trembath on

We recently went away for a week and left our rabbit Neville with Deb. We could not fault the hutches or space for him to run around. Deb is conscientious and caring and he was certainly looked after. Would recommend to anyone who needs to find a place for your small pet to stay and will be using again!!

5 From Emma Chase on

Deb at Happy Hoppers provided our 2 guinea pigs with 5* accommodation and treatment. She is a genuine animal lover who maintains the highest standards of love and care. I wouldn't hesitate to use her services again, and also to recommend her to anyone who needs their rabbits or guinea pigs looked after. Thanks Deb!

5 From Mark & Angela on

A really great place for my 2 rabbits to stay. Deb is very kind and puts your mind at rest that your rabbits are in the best possible hands and having the best holiday! My rabbits had a very large run and private housing and the countryside is great for them to enjoy. Everything was handled very smoothly and professionally. I will definitely come back again and again. Thanks Deb!

5 From Charlotte on

We cannot rate Happy Hoppers highly enough, Ledley really enjoyed his stay and we're not sure he wanted to come home! Debbie is so friendly and helpful, Ledley will be boarding again soon!

5 From Sarah & Daniel on

I boarded my two (very hairy) guinea pigs, Smoke and Peanut, here for three nights at the beginning of April. The hutches are spacious with lots of fresh hay, toys and tunnels and there are nice big runs outside for them too. Debbie is very welcoming and caring and totally professional. She groomed them every day for me and they were very happy and relaxed when I picked them up. I cannot recommend Happy Hoppers highly enough and will definitely use them again with total confidence.

5 From Grace on

Miss B is a house bunny who has never been moved from her cosy indoor hutch, so I was worried about how she'd cope with a change of scenery. Luckily, a friend found the Happy Hoppers website, noticed their RWAF membership, and recommended them to me. Debs at Happy Hoppers was more than happy to let us take a look around before we made a booking. The hutches are inside a heated summer house and lead onto outdoor runs - which are closed off at night. The whole place is spotlessly clean and smells of fresh hay - and when Debs explained her cleaning routines, feeding routines and vaccine requirements, I could see why. Everything she said made it clear that she was not only very professional, but also caring and experienced at handling rabbits and guinea pigs. When we explained that Miss B gets sore feet and needs special bedding, Debs was happy to adjust her routine - even setting up an indoor run when it was cold outside! The best review I could give Happy Hoppers comes from the bunny herself - when we went to collect her, she gave us a sniff and a grunt... then bounded over to Debs as soon as she heard her voice! I was really impressed with the service, but now I know that Miss B would happily come back for another holiday! We'll definitely use Happy Hoppers again and I'd recommend them to anyone who asks! Thank you, Deb!

5 From Eleanor, Billy & Miss B on

Wonderful bunny holiday home! T-Rex & Fluffy seemed very happy and relaxed after their holiday! The hutches were lovely with outside area for them to freely use, with toys etc. The owner was very caring and made me feel at ease leaving them with her. They will definately come to stay again. :-)

5 From Rebecca Snyders on

Very warm welcome and lovely environment , clean and safe. Fudge and Caramel seemed very happy and enjoyed their holiday!! Definitely use this place again! lovely cages with lots of fun toys and comfy beds for them to snuggle up in !!! February 2013.

5 From Emma & Ruby on

I was so nervous when I first thought about finding a boarding home for my three rabbits while I was on holiday. My worries completely disappeared once I went to visit Happy Hoppers and met Debbie. The hutches are so spacious, filled with toys and tunnels to stop the rabbits and guinea pigs getting bored. Debbie is very knowledgeable and professional in her service. She looks after the rabbits as if they were her own and I feel totally relaxed knowing they are in her capable hands! Without a doubt - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! :-)

5 From Kelly on

Location... Location... Location this place is superb, we left bugsy our pet rabbit here for a month while we were on holiday. The hutches are located in a big wooden (heated) shed. There is a tunnel from most hutches into a enclosed outside playpen (grass area) Each hutch has its own play pen. Our rabbit could play in the play pen and then run back through the tunnel into her hutch when she wanted. The tunnel is shut off at night so the rabbits remain secure in their hutches inside the heated shed. The whole place is very secure and quiet. Debbie the owner is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. She has real affection for the animals in her care. Our holiday was made much better knowing our little one was having a great time as well. Much thanks Debbie, will see you next year x x

5 From Caroline, Tony and Bugsy on

Thank you so much for looking after my guineas over Christmas. The hutches and runs are excellent and it's always comforting to know that I'm leaving them somewhere where they will be well looked after. Highly recommended. x

5 From Freya on

My two bunnies have now stayed at Happy Hoppers twice and love it! I have absolutely no worries when leaving them with Deb (the owner) as I know they will be well cared for - it may be a business but Deb has real love and care for my furry little friends. The hutches and pens are spacious and very clean. My bunnies come home happy and settled which is great. I'll always use Happy Hoppers as it's real peace of mind when I'm away. Thanks Deb!

5 From Claire Winter on

Happy Hoppers had my rabbits to stay over Christmas and the accommodation is 100% luxury. It is spotlessly clean and my rabbits came home looking like they had a holiday of their own. Would recommend this to any one who is looking for rabbit boarding.

5 From Abbigail on

We love Happy Hoppers, we use Debbie's service all year round. Our three guineas pigs have such a wonderful time, they play in the runs all day and then snuggle up safe all night. The facilities are absolutely spotlessly and clean. They eat better at Happy hoppers than they do at home Debbie provides them with all the best nutrition with fresh vegetables. Debbie and her family welcome all the animals into their home and treat them as if they were their own. They're lovely people and we wouldn't know what to do without them, as we can relax on holiday and know our pets are in safe hands.

5 From Jenny Duckworth on

My Guinea Pigs have a fantastic time at Happy Hoppers. Debbie is always accommodating. The facilities are excellent, always clean and you know your pets are in very safe hands.

5 From Jenny on

I would highly recommend happy hoppers, I recently borded my rabbit there for a week. Hutches and runs are always extremely clean and Deb was very welcoming. Nothing was too much for her and she treated my rabbit exactly as I would. I would be happy to take my rabbit back there.

5 From Hannah Diehl on

I cannot recommend Happy Hoppers highly enough. I have boarded my animals there twice and left them both times full of confidence that they will receive the best care possible. I have 4 rabbits and 5 guinea pigs and Deb at Happy Hoppers takes the time to listen to all of my instructions and worries about each one, even giving my blind guinea pig extra care and attention during his stay. The hutches and runs are amazing and my little crew did not want to come home at the end of their stay!! I wouldn't think of leaving them anywhere else now.

5 From Nicola Major on

I dropped my 3 guinea pigs off here for the first time this summer. Was very impressed with the facilities - this really and truly is luxury boarding at its best. Lovely hutches and lovely runs. Deb who runs it is lovely and treats them as her own. I'll definitely be booking my piggies in again next year and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks for giving my piggies an amazing holiday - Floella, Tallulah and Wilameena are already looking forward to their next stay with you.

5 From Anna on

It was so reassuring to find such a professional and welcoming enviroment. We were happy to leave our pets in the care of Happy Hoppers and would have no hesitation recommending Happy Hoppers to all our friends.

5 From Pat and Shona Nolan on

We would thoroughly recommend 'Happy Hoppers' as a friendly , efficient and comfortable place for your small animal to stay. Our rabbits and three guinea pigs always look right at home as soon as we drop them off and we can relax knowing that their individual needs are being cared for throughout their visit.

5 From The Tubb Family on

I regularly leave my two rabbits at Happy Hoppers as the facilities and care they receive are excellent. The rabbits and guinea-pigs have secure, spacious hutches in a lovely, big shed. Each hutch has a run. All the runs are huge, especially the ones for rabbits and I love the fact the they are full of toys, hiding spaces and tunnels for the animals to play in. The new hutches which link directly to the outside enclosures are brilliant as the rabbits can come and go as they please. I feel guilty when I have to pick my rabbits up at the end of the holiday as they have had so much freedom there and all in a quiet, safe, countryside location. The lady who runs it is very friendly and spends a lot of time looking after the animals having two rescue rabbits of her own. I have been thoroughly impressed every-time I have boarded my pets here and highly recommend Happy Hoppers.
