About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsHamsters, Mice etc.

Having previous experience within a large pet care /retail shop, I left that profession due to my family obligations.


We offer secure hutches inside a secure locked and floodlight protected building with a play section inside to ensure that your fur babies are well protected from the elements etc. There is also a heater and fan to ensure that this building never gets to cold or hot. Outside decking area for play and grass area for fun in the sun where again your fur babies will be secure in an enclosed locked garden or within a secure metal fence run within our garden depending on requirements.

2022 we are purchasing 2 x new double rabbit hutches retiring our older ones to be used outside.  1 new long double hutch for single rabbits
2021 another large guinea pig cage, an air conditioning unit plus coolant mats and pads due to the longer hot summer this year.   New larger run,  same length as the rest but wider 2 metres (6 feet) to add more tunnels etc.  For multiple bunnies.
We have purchased 2 more guinea pig runs and hideaways to attach.  Another hideaway purchased to for our newer larger run. Another 2 smart cameras and ring doorbell to ensure your fur babies are totally secure when boarding with us..
2020 was a difficult year for all, we painted our hutches our signature blue and some lilac too.  We also purchased 2 new large double guinea pig cages and a new single use one.
2019 we  custom built 3 rabbit runs.  These runs are 1 metre in height (3 feet) to allow rabbits to jump and stretch. Length approximately 2 metres (6 feet), width approximately 1.22 metres (4 feet).  These will have a metal section overhead plus tarpaulin,  and will still have our original ones available too.   We have already purchased 2 more of our guinea pig runs including hutches, and have our originals available too.

New custom built runs in March secure fencing overhead and tarpaulin covers too.  Not forgetting our new hideaways for day time use only. 
December 2018 our Smart camera to ensure your fur babies are content at whatever the time.   Smart plugs to switch on heat or coolant when required even if we are out. 


As fresh air and exercise are important to rabbit and guinea pigs they will have time outside to frolic and play weather permitting. If the weather is bad we have separate fencing for inside use to ensure they always have an opportunity to stretch their legs.

Health & Hygiene:

All hutches, cages are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis using the recommended F10 disinfectant. All animals boarded have their own hutch/cage unless you have more one that live together happily and are cleaned daily.

Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a pet hotel for their wee critter! Our two rabbits have stayed at Thumper and Squeak's on multiple occasions for at times weeks on end. They've always gotten daily attention and as much outside play as the weather permits. Susan also does a fantastic job of sending updates and photos and is very knowledgeable about the healthy dietary requirements of the animals she boards. It's obvious Susan loves doing what she does and we can always rest assured knowing that our rabbits are in safe hands when we're on holiday.

I would highly recommend here to leave your furry friends whilst away. They do not miss out on any cuddles and are cared for as if they were on their own wee holiday. If you want to support a local business this is definitely the place to go

I found Thumper and Squeak when looking for someone to care for my two rats whilst I was on holiday. Susan got back to me promptly and helped to arrange the best situation for my pets. She was so helpful throughout and I felt safe leaving my girls with her. Thanks again for all your help!

During our 2 week holiday our bunny Lotta stayed with Susan/ Thumper and Squeak. We were very happy with the care and attention Lotta got. We certainly picked up a happy bunny. Susan was quick to answer our initial enquiry. Booking process was easy. During our holiday we also received an email with an update how Lotta was doing. We will recommend Thumper and Squeak to anybody who is looking for pet boarding and will book our bunny in anytime we need to go away.

Excellent service. My 2 bunnies were cared for as if they were part of the family. They had a great 2 week holiday of their own. Would definitely use again.

I recently used Thumper & Squeak to look after my daughters little hamster while we were on 2 weeks holiday. Met Susan who was really friendly and showed us the set up. Susan seems genuinely interested in making sure your pet has an enjoyable stay. Would definitely use again and would highly recommend.
