About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea Pigs

Holiday Burrows is a family run business providing a top-notch small pet holiday boarding service for guinea pigs and rabbits throughout Oxfordshire. We've been looking after animals for as long as we can remember, so you can be safe in the knowledge that your pets are in good hands and that they are having a great holiday too!

Our aim is to provide a personal yet professional service and to be as accommodating as possible.


Outdoor Accommodation
We have a range of hutches measuring from 4 to 6 feet in length, all of these are kept in a covered area sheltered from the wind and rain, the fronts are covered over with blankets at night for added security and to prevent draughts. All hutches are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between stays.

Indoor Accommodation
We have a number of Ferplast 100 cages (approximately 100cm x 60cm), suitable for guinea pigs and dwarf rabbits. These are kept in a heated/insulated shed with a radio softly playing the animals' favourite tunes.

Outdoor runs
We have a number of sizable, purpose-built outdoor runs (all visible from the house) which visitors can make use of (depending on weather conditions and availability). Shade, water and a small 'play-house' will be provided for any animal making use of these.

Food & Water
We ask that owners bring enough of their pets' dried food to last the stay. We will supply daily fresh fruit/veg and provide unlimited hay. Water will be provided via either a standard rodent water bottle or bowl (depending on preference) in both hutches and outdoor runs.

We generally use a newspaper under-layer with either hay, straw or pine shavings as a substrate, if you'd rather we use a different type of bedding for your pet(s) just bring a supply along with you at the beginning of the stay and we'll use that instead. All hutches are frequently spot-cleaned and get a complete change of bedding on a weekly basis.

I've just sent this to Sam at Holiday Burrows, so it might wind up on their website too... “While we took a week’s holiday at Christmas 2012 we left our two lop bunnies with Holiday Burrows and we were really impressed. A pretty farmhouse with lots of clean sturdy hutches, we felt very reassured when we greeted the wellington-clad Sam – who came across as a very responsible young man, an animal carer and general outdoorsy-type. With robust runs on their lusciously grassy lawn (wish ours still looked like that!) and tonnes of fresh hay grown on the farm (we bought some to take home – a bargain), our bunnohs had plenty to eat and do and were clearly in great spirits when we collected them. My husband and I will definitely be bringing our rabbits back to Holiday Burrows when we next go away. Want more info? Facebook @Kate La Pin and @Geoff Lettuce to ask them what they thought of their stay.”
