About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsBirdsReptilesHamsters, Mice etc.

When going on your holiday the last thing you need to worry about is leaving your pet behind. It is a huge responsibility to your friends and neighbours to look after your pet. They may not know how to care for them properly, how to handle them, look out for illness and what to do when something is wrong.

We are a small family-run business and have many years' experience in caring for all different varieties of small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, birds etc. We only look after a manageable number of small animals, which means we can cater for all of your pet's needs. We offer your pet a "home away from home". ​

We started Hoppy Holidayz boarding service to provide a high standard of small animal boarding. Your pet is not just placed in a hutch and left until your return. Guests are checked several times a day, given a stimulating environment with daily access to their own outdoor run and groomed should they require it. Time is taken to make sure that they settle in well and they are given plenty of TLC. They go home happy and settled so you know they have had a good time. We have been providing a pet-sitting service for many years and spend time getting to know your pet, ensuring they are happy and cared for whilst you are away.

They are not just another booking to us, they are your pet and a very much loved member of your family.

We have access to a local vet 24/7 and can also administer any medications that your pet may require during their stay.

We are more than happy to provide updates during your pet's stay.

Owners are more than welcome to come and view and inspect our premises prior to their pet boarding. We also encourage early booking to avoid disappointment and can offer a collection and delivery service should this be required.


All of our guests are kept indoors at night in our secure rabbitry. Housing pets indoors at night ensures that they are not exposed to natural predators including foxes, domestic dogs and cats. The accommodation has been designed and built to our specifications purposely to house rabbits and guinea pigs etc. The room is well ventilated and an extraction system keeps the air fresh and clean. Having numerous air bricks at floor level also allows a healthy supply of fresh air to flow throughout without causing harmful draughts.

Whilst your pet is in our care a variety of fresh foods will be provided twice daily. Dried food can be supplied, however rabbits and guinea pigs have delicate intestine flora and a change in food can be upsetting. We therefore strongly recommend that you provide your own dried food.


Outdoor runs
All our guests will be offered daily access to an outdoor run (weather permitting). Each run is made of galvanised steel and has a secure lid to ensure your guest's safety. All runs have a shelter and we can also provide sunshades in particularly warm weather.

Health & Hygiene:

We reserve the right to turn away any guests which we believe are not in good health as they are best kept at home if recovering from illness. This is also to protect our other guests from any illness which could be contagious.

We recommend rabbits are vaccinated against VHD and Myxomatosis. At present there are no vaccinations required for guinea pigs or other small animals.

In the unlikely event that your pet should show any signs of illness we will contact you on your emergency contact number to discuss the situation and transport them to either your vet if local or our vet for treatment. Any veterinary fees incurred for treatment will be payable by yourself on return/collection of your pet.
