Hi, my name is Nic Lewis and and after sharing my home with rabbits for over 30 years, I decided to open up my own Small Animal Boarding Service, called 'Bunnydorm'. Here at 'Bunnydorm' we will ensure that your pet is safe, happy and secure in the best possible hands.
You can rest assured that while they are with us, we will give them all the love and attention they need, while they are away from their home environment.
As of May 2018, we have changed the way we house outdoor guests, and instead of boarding in hutches/runs, we are proud to open 'Bunnydorm Lodge'.
'Bunnydorm Lodge' is a 14ft x 11ft free range space for the sole use of either a single rabbit, bonded pair or colony! Our guests are free to enjoy the space 24 hours a day, with lots of hidey places, tunnels, boxes and toys! During the day, we have a purpose built, floor to ceiling gate offering security and ventilation. At night, the lodge is locked securely.
Inside our human home, we have a room dedicated to free range house rabbits and more delicate pets, such as hamsters and indoor guinea pigs.
Feeding - We kindly ask that you bring your pets own, regular dried food. We will provide all fresh vegetables and hay of course!
As both of our accommodation options are free range, 24 hours a day, your pet can exercise as little or as often as it chooses!!!
Guinea pigs staying with us, will have an area to exercise within our own home.
We no longer put any guests in runs in our garden.
Health & Hygiene:
All litter trays will be cleaned daily, and 'Bunnydorm Lodge' and our 'House Rabbit Room' will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected at the end of each guests stay.
All rabbits must be vaccinated against Myxomatosis and Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease (RHD). As of 1st April 2017, we will only be able to accept rabbits who have also received the new RHD2 vaccine.
If your pet requires veterinary care during their stay, we will endeavour to take them to their own vets. However in an emergency, we will use our own vets.
Small Pet Boarding Prices
£15.00 per day - for sole use of 'Bunnydorm Lodge'
£10.00 per day - for sole use of 'House Rabbit Room'
£ 6.00 per day - for Single Guinea Pig
£ 7.00 per day - for Bonded Pair of Guinea Pigs
£ 3.00 per day - for Hamster (in own cage)
These rates include the day of arrival and collection, regardless of the time of day.
Full payment is due when you collect your pet. Payment by cash or cheque. If paying by cheque, please make payable to Mrs N. Lewis.
A Home Visit service is now available. This is a very popular alternative to boarding, where pets can stay in their home surroundings. This service is highly recommended for house rabbits, especially if our house rabbit room is occupied. Home Visits to local area only - please call to discuss further.
Just collected my bunnies after a few days away. It is the second time they have boarded there. I am so glad I found Bunnydorm. I can leave them and do not worry about them. Great accomodation and great care.

Boarders Response:Many thanks Carolyn and they were a pleasure to look after and look forward to seeing them again next year.
I left my two mini lops with Nic and would be very happy to recommend. I could relax knowing they were well looked after. They did not want to come home.
From Carolyn on
Boarders Response:Thank you Carolyn - they were perfect guests! Look forward to seeing them again soon!
Total peace of mind! I cannot thank Nic enough for the care and love she gave to my chinchilla Echo whilst I was away. I was so nervous about leaving her for 2 weeks but then Nic suggested home visits instead of boarding so that Echo would have minimal stress. She came to visit a few weeks before I went away and met Echo and explained when she would visit and what she would do. It really put my mind at rest knowing that Echo would be looked after by someone who really cared. Nic sent me regular emails and pictures throughout my holiday and it was clear that both Nic and Echo were enjoying the visits. Everything was so simple and easy and Nic is such a lovely person. I will definitely use her again as knowing that my little fluffball was happy and loved while I was away really put my mind at rest so that I could enjoy my holiday without worry.
From Nicci and Echo on
Top Class care from Nic who is dedicated to her boarders. We were encouraged to visit Bunnydorm prior to Mr Flopsy Goggins stay which totally put us at ease. The accommodation and cleanliness was second to none and Nic talked fondly of the animals staying at the time. We were sold!
Within no time at all Nic had mr Flopsy Goggin's personality to a 'T', and in her regular updates mentioned traits which I had forgot to mentioned on the form. I new he could be in no better place and I could not be happier.
Mr Flopsy Goggins was totally relaxed and happy when we picked him up and I enjoyed Nic's updates.
I totally recommend your pets holiday at Bennydorm whilst you are away.
From Maggie Templeman on
Hi Nic thank you yet again for the hospitality for Dolly. She came home so chilled, we are so comfortable while we are away knowing she's in good hands. You are a truly amazing pet carer x
From Mandy Humphrey on
My two house buns (popsy and missy) stayed with the lovely Nic for just over two weeks while we were on holiday. Before we chose bunnydorm we looked at alot of different places for them to stay, but nowhere made us feel so relaxed and at ease with leaving our little girls as Nic did. Shes so polite, caring and really understands how nervous we felt at leaving them for the first time for such a long time. When we dropped them off, she let us set up her bunnyroom as we would at home and settled them in straight away. While we were away we had many lovely emails and pictures from nic reasurring us they were having a fab holiday too!
I honestly cant recomend Nic enough, she was amazing with our girls, but also amazing with us and really made us feel comfortable to enjoy our holiday!
Nic, you'll be seeing my little buns very soon!
Thankyou again Nic!

Five Star bunny boarding! It was the first time I had boarded my 3 bunnies and was really lucky to find Nic, she put me at ease and was happy to show me round and talk through a bunny day before my bunnies arrived. Nic kindly updated me whilst I was away and put my mind at rest as I was not sure how my girls would settle but they were great! A lovely personal service from Nic, and knows her bunny stuff! Highly recommended and will be boarding them with her again later in the year.
From Mandy Biggs on
Bella our house rabbit had a wonderful holiday at Bunnydorm. She settled in within minutes and the room Nic has set aside for them is lovely - loads of things for rabbits to explore and extremely clean. We were all very sure that Bella would have a lovely holiday and that she would be well looked after by Nic. Bella will be back soon!
From Sara Rice on
My 2 rabbits, Jasper & Miffy have just had a wonderful 2 weeks staying at Bunnydorm. It was the first time I had boarded my rabbits with Nic but as soon as I met her I knew that my rabbits would be well looked after & cared for whilst we were away. She is very knowledgeable about rabbits and their care and the accommodation is 5* plus. Definitely recommend Nic and Bunnydorm for anyone looking to board their little furries.
From HelenKane on
Oh my goodness, what an angel Nic is. We didn't view Bunnydorm before we left Dolly, I knew when I spoke to Nic on the phone I wanted Dolly to stay with her. We loved being up dated with pictures whilst we were away, and knew she was in good hands. We are soooo glad we found you and Dolly looks forward to her own little holiday in May. Dolly obviously got used to your routine because she's been coming down when I get home, she usually stays upstairs till her dinner time at 6.30 xxxx
From Mandy Humphrey on
Thank-you very much for having Poppy and Murphy when we went away for a week. I knew from the moment i met you they were going to be well looked after and given plenty of attention. Also thank-you for keeping in touch, i loved seeing all of their holiday adventures. I will definitely be booking them in when we go away in future as i know they will get 5* treatment.

What a wonderful find.Our rabbits Starsky and Thelma stayed with Nic for nearly 3 weeks whilst we were on our honeymoon. Nic is very professional,knowledgeable and kind. Her facilities our great and it put our minds at rest as we knew that the bunnies were going to be well looked after whilst we were away.I would certainly use Bunnydorm again.Thanks Nic.
From Sue Thompson on
"From the moment we came to check out Bunnydorm, we knew instantly that Bun Bun was going to receive a first class level of care. She is very nervous around new people and environments and we were worried about where she could stay when we went away on a two and a half week holiday. Nic has a fantastic, professional set up of outdoor hutches and garden runs plus a lovely big and stimulating room in her house for house bunnies (where Bun Bun stayed). We could see straight away that Nic was a very kind and caring lady who truly loves rabbits (and all small creatures) and who is both very meticulous and knowledgeable about their care.
Whilst we were away we received regular updates about how Bun Bun was getting on, with lovely photos which really put our minds at ease. As an example of the personal attention that Nic gives to her bunny boarders, Bun Bun was soon giving Nic licks, which is rare as you really have to spend a lot of time with Bun Bun to be reciprocated with love!
In summary Nic goes out of her way to give all her boarders the care and attention they need, as well as making sure they are in a safe, clean and stimulating environment. Bunnydorm is truly 5 star accommodation for bunnies and Bun Bun is looking forward to her next holiday there ! " - submitted via our website

RUFUS had his first visit in July 2015, he had a fabulous time at bunnydorm, highly recommended, 5* . It is our first choice from now on. Nic is a lovely kind lady,... what more could you want
From Terri on
"What do you want from a holiday?? A friendly smile with good customer service, fresh food, clean accommodation, comfy bed, great outdoor space to lounge about and play, some extras the odd stroke!!! First class, five star service for bunnies at Bunnydorm"

Bambi and Bandit stayed with Nic in June. It was their first holiday and I was worried about leaving them. I should not have worried at all! Nic was so attentive to them, I couldn't have asked for better care. Bambi has a sensitive tummy occasionally and she sat up with her to keep a check on her. She even got up with her at 5.30am just to check she was ok!!! Bambi was fine and her and Bandit had a whale of a time in the beautiful indoor room she has for house bunnies. I hope she always has room for them as I wouldn't want them to stay anywhere else. Ever! I'll just move the holiday !!!
From Clare on
I'll definitely be using you again whenever my rabbits need boarding. I was so impressed with the service and the way you looked after her. She had a great time and I knew she was getting lots of love and attention while I was away. I couldn't be happier with her stay.

I am so happy that we found Bunnydorm! Nic is a very pleasant woman. Communication, house and service were at the great level. I'm sure my 2 guinea pigs Elvis and Monroe had a very good time when staying there. Definitely would recommend to everyone looking to board their small furry friends.
From Aysel on
My house bunnies Neville and Florence came home after their Xmas break relaxed and happy. They settled back in at home instantly, which tells me they had a stress-free and enjoyable holiday in the indoor bunny room at Bunnydorm. Nic was great as always and couldn't do enough to help. Nev and Flo look forward to seeing you in Feb!

Our 2 house bunnies Tiger=Bunny and Rodney stayed with Nic for a week at Bunnydorm and it was clear right from the moment we meet Nic that this was the right place for our little scrabblers. She put my mind at rest immediately as I was quite anxious about leaving them and sent photos and texts throughout our holiday which further eased my mind. Nic is an incredibly warm and carrying person and clearly loves bunnies. I would highly recommend Bunnydorm to anyone looking for a safe and secure environment for their beloved pets. Bunnydorm is number 1 for us now. Thanks Nic..you're a diamond and we're so glad we found you!
From Vivienne on
Nik has a wonderful set up at Bunnydorm. She understand rabbits and what they need. I am really happy I have found Nik and Honey will definitely be visiting again. Thank you
From Lynda Davidson on
'My two house bunnies, Roxi and Lola, were only 9 months old and since I got them in January 2014 I hadn't left them for more than a few hours since, so I was so nervous at boarding them for my much needed holiday. There wasn't much choice around for proper indoor bunny care and Roxi and Lola being free range buns had never been in a hutch and I was getting very anxious!
Then I found Nic and Bunnydorm! When I met Nic and saw they would have their own little living room it was a no brainer. Such a lovely and friendly woman, I knew my buns would be super fine and that they would love their holiday as much as mine. Nic kept me updated with pics of my babies throughout my holiday so I came back as rested and as happy as my girls did!
We'll be back Bunnydorm! Thank you so much!!'

Highly recommendable pet care!! We were so happy to find this 5 star accommodation for our bunnies while we went away. Nic is amazing and made sure that they were given first class treatment during their stay. She had sussed out their individual characters within a very short while and with the regular updates, we were completely relaxed about the care they were receiving and knew that they were having as good a holiday as we were. With the warm, clean hutches and outdoor runs set in the lovely garden, Bunnydorm more than met our expectations for pet care and Nic just topped it all with her super caring way. What a treat for both us and our bunnnies - we look forward to our next holiday and recommend Bunnydorm to anyone looking for the best in pet boarding.
From Casey B. on
Finding Nic and Bunnydorm has been so amazing! We hadn't been on holiday for two years and were really reluctant to leave our bunny, Merlin, anywhere!
But, after visiting Bunnydorm and seeing for ourselves the fantastic hutches, outdoor runs and meeting Nic, who is so lovely, caring and knowledgable, our minds were completely at ease.
Our postcards from Bunnydorm, with regular updates and photos of Merlin, were a great comfort and help also. To see Merlin so happy, running around the run, helped us relax more when we were so missing him!
We would completely recommend Bunnydorm to anyone and Merlin is looking forward to his next holiday there.....
From Karen Mitchell on
When we decided to go on holiday we were worried about where to place our house rabbit. Having looked at a couple of places, we came across Bunnydorm. From the moment we met Nic and saw where Bunns would be staying, our minds were put at ease. It was a real home from home for him. He had full range of the room and was extremely well cared for. He has returned from holiday suitably rested and chilled. We would definitely recommend Bunnydorm and hope that when we go away next time, he'll be able to visit again. Thank you so much.
From Jill Biss on
Finding Bunnydorm and Nic has been a lifesaver. It's a challenge to find appropriate accommodation for house bunnies who are used to lots of space. The facilities for indoor rabbits are fab; the indoor boarding room is a good size with natural light and good ventilation. I was able to bring my own bunny items to combine with the lovely hideout and toys Nic provided.
Nic offered great support, up to date bunny knowledge, lovely photo updates and a top class holiday for my bunny, Neville. What topped it off was that even during a sad time (my bunny had just lost his partner before his stay), Nic made sure that Neville enjoyed his holiday, with all the attention and companionship he needed.

Thank you so much for really taking care of Beano and Azula. We were grateful for the reassuring texts at the start of the bunnies' stay as we were worried about Beano settling down. The hutches were really clean, full of toys to keep them busy , and we were pleased that they had plenty of time outdoors in large runs. Our babies have been pampered over the week and we look forward to leaving them with you again over the weekend! Submitted via our website

Nic looked after my two cheeky guinea pigs, Jeff and Horatio, for a whole month while I got married and went on honeymoon. I was so lucky to find her - I had never used a pet boarding house before and was understandably nervous, but within a minute of meeting Nic all fears were assuaged! She did a marvellous job of caring for the boys - they enjoyed lots of cuddles and daily runs on the grass, and their worried Mum was even sent 'pig updates' comprising photos of them having a whale of a time! I trust Nic implicitly and Bunnydorm will be my first (and only) port of call the next time I go on holiday. Submitted via our website.
From Jen Shannon on
Mr Cottonflower and Old Bailey had a fabulous time at Bunnydorm. The set up is very secure and we weren't worried about the rabbits' safety in any way. Their hutch was a really decent size and extremely clean, and they had the opportunity to go outside in a large run every day to get some exercise/sun. Even better, Nic kindly provided some fabulous toys for them to keep them busy, so they were very happy bunnies! We even got some 'holiday snaps' on our return. A really personal and friendly service. Thank you for looking after our boys so well!'. 'Submitted via our website'
From Nicki Witkin on
Nic took such great care of my bunnies Bam Bam and Autumn. They don't usually enjoy change and can become unsettled. Their accommodation was lovely. They had a large double hutch to stay in and also had a run in the garden to use as well as toys and hideouts which they loved.
Nic also emailed us pictures from their time on holiday which was a lovely thing to receive when we were missing them!
Would definitely use bunny dorm again!

Our 2 rabbits, Arthur and Rosie, and our 2 guinea pigs, Percy and Stan, all had a lovely time staying at Bunnydorm. The facilities are great and all their whims were catered for! Nic's care and attention to detail is second to none. I would highly recommend Bunnydorm to everyone who wants their pets to enjoy a 5 star holiday.
From Liz Griffiths on
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for looking after our rabbits so well whilst we were away. It was our first holiday in such a long time and a huge relief to know that Doris and Dylan were in safe and loving hands. We knew we didn't need to worry, even being so far away! Now saving for our next trip and counting on you to keep the date open for us... Many thanks from Sue and Dave and all Webster family xxx
