About our Small Pet Boarding

Holiday Hutches is a family run, pet-sitting service providing accommodation in a safe, secure and comfortable environment for all small animals, including chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and birds

Unfortunately, Holiday Hutches is not able to accommodate ferrets or cockerels.


All pets are housed in safe and comfortable lodgings undercover and may be given outdoor exercise during the day in mild weather.

For chickens, ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs, hutches and runs are provided. For any other pet, we ask the owner to bring their own cages.

For all animals, the animals' own dry food should be brought with them while meadow hay, layers' pellets and fresh fruit and vegetables will be provided.

Rabbits, guinea pigs must have a chew or gnaw block brought with them to maintain their teeth. Other treats and toys are also advised.


Each rabbit and guinea pig has access to an indoor run throughout the day from their hutches.

Chickens will spend the majority of the day in a large, secure run with dust baths and vegetation and roost in a secure, draft-proof chicken house.

Health & Hygiene:

Every animal will be housed separately from other animals (except their own companions) and cages will be spot-cleaned everyday with fresh food and water supplied.

Animals will get a twice daily health check and we will be happy to administer any medication brought with the pet. Long-haired pets may be groomed at owner's discretion at no extra cost.

I have always relied on Holiday Hutches to look after my 2 budgies whenever I go away; they are very reassuring, experienced and caring folk. They take such great care of them, always kept the cage clean and the birds happy. The area they kept the birds is spacious with lots of light, enough to keep my budgies chirping and singing throughout their stay. I will continue to rely on their service.

We were very happy that the new owners looked after our chickens excellently. The hutches and surroundings were better than our own - so we weren't sure the chickens wanted to com back home!! Thanks to Aaron and family for taking care of our birds.

This place is under new ownership and the new owners are fab! I took in 2 guinea pigs and 2 budgies and they were all well looked after, i was v happy when i collected them. They are obviously real animal lovers, and members of the household have experience working in an animal charity and vet services, which made me feel reassured. I was like a fussing mum leaving them behind, but nothing was too much trouble to reassure me about and they made me feel relaxed to be leaving them there. Definitely will be using as my go to place, would recommend.

Thanks once again for doing a great job looking after all my animals

My pet rat Frankie had a 4 day stay recently. He's a little elderly, quiet and bit nervous and has never been away from home before. So I was also nervous leaving him! When I picked him up after 4 days he was calm and happy, not at all stressed and had obviously been very well looked after. I would not hesitate to use them again.

My pet ducks stayed for 2 weeks. I couldn't have asked for better care.A lovely family who took care of my girls as it they were their own. I will definitely been using Holiday Hutches again !

Our two rabbits stay regularly and even though they have some health problems they are well cared for. Would never use anywhere else now.
