About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea Pigs

Welcome to my bunny holiday centre. My aim is to ensure that your pet has a safe and stress free holiday while you are away on yours. I will also look after your guinea pigs, hamsters, budgies & chickens. All lodgers are treated with the same loving care as my own.


The main lodge houses 15 hutches in a selection of sizes that can be pre booked to suit your pets needs. On the front of the main lodge is a strong fox proof wire door. With wooden doors that close over the top at night time. To ensure that your bunny has a safe holiday. The Chalet houses 12 hutches of superior size, ideal for larger breeds of bunnies or families.
We are proud to show off The Cottage which comprises of three deluxe size suites, for the totally spoilt bunny.

We now have The Hut which is 6x4ft with a walk in area of the same size. This would accommodate larger/continental rabbits or families.

Lilac cottage is a 4x4ft hutch with a 4x4ft run attached

Now up and running we Corner Cottage and Bluebell Cottage all with their own private runs attached. 4x4ft runs.


We now have large runs on the lawn weather permitting.

Health & Hygiene:

All rabbits must have Myxi vaccination and veterinary proof of this. Obviously Guinea pigs need no vaccination. All owners are asked to fill in a health questionaire and if illness occurs I will always try to use owners preffered vet.

Recently used Carrot Top Lodge to board my 6 bunnies. They were really well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely come back again, thank you Susan

Recently had my hamster to stay over Christmas and was super happy with the service we received. I felt a bit bad leaving her with strangers but was told to call any time (so I did!) while we were away. Would definitely have her to stay again. Maggie was just as happy when we picked her up as she was when we left her. Thank you Eric & Susan!

We found these lovely people and their beautiful small pet lodgings on FindPetBoarding. I emailed Susan who within minutes answered my questions and offered for us to view before booking. Being under a year old, our bunny hadn't been away before, and like any new mum, I was nervous leaving her. I needn't have worried, Tsuki has been looked after brilliantly, and the lodgings are delightful. We even had a photo posted of her to view while we were away. We cannot recommend these people highly enough, and Tsuki will return next year for her holiday!

I boarded my pet rabbit at carrot top lodge last summer and could not be happier that he was left in great hands. The hutches were big and very clean set in lovely gardens. The owners could not be nicer and made me feel really at ease that my much loved pet would be well cared for. I would highly recommend carrot top lodge and have booked in again this year.

Left our (new/baby) rabbit with Carrott Top lodge for about 18 days. He came home well and happy and had clearly been well looked after. I would thoroughly recommend.

I have used Carrot Tops many times, it has almost become our bunnies 2nd home. The cages are big and roomy and the care they are given is 2nd to none. The owners are very friendly, helpful and dedicated to their charges and I wouldn't leave my bunnies anywhere else.

From Pat Jarvis on

Nice large hutches, I choose a larger hutch that is very spacious for two large rabbits. Rabbits have boarded a couple of times and always seem happy and very well looked after. Very clean and nice .
