About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsHamsters, Mice etc.

We are a small and friendly establishment offering rabbit, guinea pig and other small animal boarding. 
Over the years, we have owned and cared for lots of different pets including, dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish and birds. 
Being massive animal lovers is a big part of our family and caring for animals is really a passion we share. Welcoming animals into your home takes a lot of time and effort devoting your care and making sure your furry family members are as happy as can be.
So while you're having a break away, send your pets to us and they will have guaranteed love and cuddles until you return!


All pets have individual accommodation.
Most of the hutches are kept in a large summerhouse at the end of the property but there are also hutches outside of the summerhouse.
We can accommodate two rabbits/ guinea pigs in same hutch if your pets are used to living together.
We also have large two tier hutches that can accommodate three/ four rabbits or six guinea pigs.
The summerhouse is closed and locked at night for security.
We provide all bedding, fresh fruit and veg, hay and always fresh drinking water.
We recommend you bring your animals dry food for the duration of their stay to avoid upset tummies.
Small animals in their cages are kept in our house.
We can accommodate indoor rabbits or guinea pigs in our indoor room, if your pets are used to living indoors.


There's lovely large rabbit runs in our large garden with toys and tunnels, where your pet can play.
The runs regularly rotate around the garden so your pet will have plenty of fresh grass to nibble on.
The summerhouse has play pens in case of bad weather. Indoor animals have plenty of time out of their cage for playing and stretching their legs too.

Health & Hygiene:

All hutches and cages are fully cleaned disinfected and air dryed between guests.
All soiled bedding is removed and replaced daily.
Rabbts must be vaccinated against VHD1 & VHD2 and Myxomatosis before they board with us, and proof of vaccination is needed.
All rabbits need to be neutered or spayed.
In the event of an animal being taken ill veterinary care will be sought at the expence of the owner. My own Vet is in walking distance of Apperley Lodge. Medication can be administered if required.

Chives, our rabbit stayed for 11 nights at Apperley lodge. We are extremely happy and grateful of how well chives has been looked after. Everything was perfect, lovely and home from home for our beautiful bunny. Jacqueline is a lovely lady and would be happy to have chives stay here again in the future.

Boarders Response:Thank you so much Emily, it was my pleasure to look after them..

A great home away from home for our rabbits - Jacqueline looks after them very well.

Our guineas have stayed twice now on their summer holidays and we'll be very happy to leave them here again next time. Everything seems well maintained and the guineas came home happy and healthy. Thank you!

This year was the first time our two Guinea pigs had stayed here. Apperley lodge us great. The hutches are clean( even have their names written on chalk boards) and I like the fact they are in the summer house to shield them from bad weather. If you have indoor animals apperley lodge cater for those who are house animals. Our Guinea pigs were outside in one of the pens in the warm weather with plenty of water and shade. A lovely lady who gives up her days to love our animals. Already booked another 2 times this year. Highly recommended

5 From Lisa on

Our daughter's hamster had a lovely time staying here for 10 days and was made a fuss of and looked after very well. We would happily bring her again as she was quite spoilt! A great find, very pleased.

5 From Karen on

Olaf and Toothless had a great stay here. The owner is lovely and really looked after our Guinea Pigs whilst they were in her care. Will definitely recommend and use again.

5 From Rachel Sowerby on

Ratties were really happy here, well looked after, came back clean and healthy after a weeks holiday. Will certainly use again.
