About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsHamsters, Mice etc.

Hi I have kept rabbits and guinea pigs and hampsters since I was a young girl. I am now a hobby breeder of mini lop, and mini Rex rabbits. I have lots of time to spend with my animals so your pet will receive the same care and attention mine do! I try my hardest to cater for individual needs and maintain your pet's usual routine and preferences. I don’t take in many boarding rabbits so this means your pet/s will get loads of attention and care and high quality hutches and exercise facilities etc.

Accommodation:

I can accommodate indoor or outdoor animals. For those living outdoors I have large secure hutches within enclosed walk in exercise/enrichment pens (10ft x 7ft). Each hutch is provided with a litter tray, chopped straw, loose straw, hay holder, fly net and rain cover. Exercise space has access to fresh water, all weather shelter, tunnels, toys, dig boxes, forage and other enrichment opportunities. The indoor hutches are large and extra large Ferplast quality hutches 140/160cm). I have a large room which is bunny safe so they can exercise in there daily. I always supply a variety of toys and enrichment activities for both inside and outside pets, which are rotated to keep interest up.

Exercise:

Your pet will have daily opportunity to spend quality time in my large, fox safe enclosures. Each run has a sun/rain cover to provide proper protection from the elements. If weather is too inclement or your pet is an indoor only pet they can use my inside run or have free time in one of our rooms supervised by myself! The enclosures outside are large enough for me to sit in with your rabbit and play and handle it daily thus ensuring it gets lots of human interaction/handling too. Each run comes with a hiding place, a dig pit, a water bottle, a tunnel, a perch and a large apple log to chew and other enrichment opportunities

Health & Hygiene:

I will only accommodate vaccinated rabbits, a certificate showing their VHD/MYXO and RHD2 vaccinations are up to date will be required. Long haired pets (or those that cannot groom themselves) will be groomed as needed but at a minimum of once every 3 days. I am experienced in caring for animals with special needs so please don't be afraid to ask for whatever your pet needs (I have recently cared for a 3-legged rabbit who needed extensive daily grooming and washing; an old blind rabbit prone to strokes; a one eyed rabbit which required skilled and careful cleaning of wound site; and bunnies staying for after-care following neutering.)

Hutches and enclosures are inspected twice daily and litter trays removed and washed daily. In hot weather bunnies will be provided with either a covered ice block or a chilled terracotta tile to lounge on!!! They will be given a full clean at least twice a week or as needed if sooner. In between stays hutches, feed bowls, toys and litter trays are emptied, scrubbed and disinfected with rabbit friendly disinfectant.

You will need to provide your pet with enough of their usual feed required for their stay, I will provide fresh hay and water daily, fresh green veg 3 times per week (or more in the case of guinea pigs), and honour any special dietary requirements.

I offer health stays also for the purpose of neutering. These stays must be for a minimum of 2 weeks, and carry a £15 surcharge plus all veterinary fees. I will undertake all vet visits prior to and following surgery and will undertake all veterinary instructions as per after care and medication - I can take the hassle and worry out of it for you. I use a local vet who is experienced in small animals. Full documentation and veterinary receipts will be provided and a quote obtained prior to booking. As all surgical procedures carry a risk, the risk is that solely of the owner and no responsibility will be accepted by myself for surgical errors or complications with recovery.

All pets can be flea/tick treated and/or wormed (minimum 10 day stay required for worming) at the owners discretion a surcharge of £5-10 is required for this service.

Drop off and pick up by arrangement between 9-9.30am or 6-6.30pm. Flexibility around this can be arranged with good notice.

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION**
Due to rise in cases of VHD2 I am having to put into place certain measures to ensure every rabbit in my care is protected as far as possible against this disease. Therefore, my outdoor rabbitry and house are closed to visitors and you will not be able to see the accommodation. Photos of your rabbits/guinea pigs in situ will be provided as reassurance. VHD2 is spread through both direct and indirect contact with an infected rabbit. This includes footfall, wild animals and flies as carriers. My hutches and surrounding areas are sprayed with Virkon which is a disinfectant known to kill the virus (and others). Thank you for your attention to this matter.

A DESPOSIT OF APPROX 20% IS REQUITED TO SECURE YOUR BOOKING. THIS DEPOSIT IS NON-REVINDABLE IN THE CASE OF CANCELLATION. WHERE PLANS CHANGE IF DATES ARE LESS THAN PREVIOUSLY BOOKED THE INITIAL CHARGE STILL STANDS.

Excellent and professional care. I thoroughly recommend this service. I was nervous to leave my bunny as never left before. I needn't of worried, regular updates and pics were provided, nothing was too much trouble. Eleanor is warm and sincere and does what she says she will do. Cannot praise high enough. My Buddy really was very happy and adjusted back to life at home in no time. First class care :)

Eleanor is very caring to our Puff and Panda (guinea pigs). Her children love them. It makes me feel very confident and comfortable with them to care of our darling piggies. She kept posting photos of piggies to me regularly. It is lovely. Very kind of her. It is worth to have her to look after our piggies during our holiday away. I am happy to have her to look after our piggies next time in the future. I highly recommended to customers to go to Eleanor.

We left our much loved Buttons ( mini lop bought from here at lops on the hill ) for a two week summer break with Eleanor and I can not praise this lady enough. She looked after our bunny as well as she looks after her own with daily pictures and videos and updates on what our cheeky monkey was up too. Eleanor is an experience breeder with lots of knowledge and you can be rest assured that she will look after your pets just as well as you do. Buttons came home very happy and I will most certainly be using her in the future. And just to add she breeds the most wonderful and healthy rabbits so look no further if want gorgeous Mini lop/ Lion head or Lion lop rabbits... So glad I found her and Lops on the hill .

We have just collected our two baby rabbits who have boarded with Eleanor and her family for a week. We were really worried about leaving them, with anyone, as they have just been put back together after being spayed and neutered. We couldn't be happier with the care they have received, they were obviously well looked after because they have come back and carried on as if they haven't been away. I would highly recommend Lops on the Hill, they have taken care of the rabbits just as they would have been cared for at home. The photos and updates during the week also kept two little girls happy knowing that their very precious rabbits were having as much fun on their holiday as we had on ours. Thank you Eleanor and family.

We left our two Guinea Pigs with Eleanor for one week, and throughout the week, she had sent us photos and updates on how they were getting on. She really cares, she goes the extra mile on making sure they are comfortable, well fed and she really tells you about their character, my pigs have come home thriving! They look so chilled and happy, i think they have had a better holiday than us!! if you are looking for someone to care for your animal the way you would, look no further than here, you feel rest assured that they are in the best place, you can understand that saying in life that you have animal owners and animal lovers... she is a real animal lover, and i have booked for August straight away as I dont wish to go anyplace else!

We are novices with our Bunnies, so unsure on many things. We found Lops On The Hill after a bad experience elsewhere, and we were so happy and relieved. We boarded our Lionhead and Lop Maisey and Dana there twice now, once for a few days, and once for just under 2 weeks. I CANNOT RECOMMEND LOPS ON THE HILL HIGHLY ENOUGH - Eleanor and her family are lovely, and I trust her with our bunnies, who are the most precious things in our family. She boarded them indoors, but gave them time exercising outside. She sent pictures to us while we were away, which always filled us we joy. When we came back, our bunnies were happy, calm and comfortable. If you have rabbits that need boarding, Eleanor and Lops On The Hill are a safe place to board your bunnies.

5 From Olly Jackson on

My bunnies have just come back from 2 weeks here and they sound like they had a brilliant time! Very much felt I didn't need to worry at all and they were clearly in expert hands and got lots of cuddles and care. Eleanor is an expert rabbit carer offering a boarding service tailored to each individual rabbit need. Thank you, I very much hope my two will stay again! 🐰
