About our Small Pet Boarding

We are a small, bespoke boarding facility for guinea pigs and rabbits.The Rural Rabbit Retreat aims to provide a high quality,comfortable and safe home from home for your much loved pets.Having only 12 accommodations means that I can offer your pet lots of fuss and attention throughout their holiday here.Our facility is set in the beautiful, peaceful countryside of Tre-Mostyn,Flintshire, North Wales.Our 5*reviews and recommendations can be found on facebook, Instagram and Google.We are very proud to have been a Finalist for Best Start Up business Wales N.I. in the Rural Business Awards 2019/20. Our small
boarding facility has also been showcased in Business Wales and NetworkShe events.We require that all rabbits are uptodate with their vaccinations in order to board.
From 2023 we will be open from April until the end of September inclusive.


We have a purpose built building, fitted with air conditioning for the summer months, heating during the winter, double glazing, security lights and decorated in a homely Vintage style. All of our 12 large, handcrafted by a local carpenter indoor hutches are RSPCA recommended size. All are painted in pretty Farrow and Ball colours and lined with non slip vinyl. All have litter trays, and come with soft dust extracted wood shavings and fresh hay, both locally sourced. Our fully insured accommodation is set in our very quiet grounds in the hamlet of Tre-Mostyn. Minutes from both J31 A55 and Coast road, we are conveniently situated on route to both airports and the North Wales coastline.


Pets are taken out of their hutches twice daily for exercise and a play in the large indoor floor space. Lots of tunnels and enrichment toys are available .Guinea pigs have large indoor playpens available with tunnels and hideaways. The Rural Rabbit Retreat supplies all dried food, hay and fresh vegetables. We have a variety of dried food on offer but please feel free to bring your own if preferred. We also offer a large variety of vegetables, organically grown in our garden and our fresh hay is sourced from a local farm.

Health & Hygiene:

All hutches are cleaned out thoroughly each morning and then spot cleaned throughout the day, using vet grade disinfectant. Another clean out of litter trays is carried out in the evening with fresh shavings and hay added for the night. The floor space is always cleaned before another pet using it. All accommodation, floor space, toys, bowls and water bottles are thoroughly disinfected before our new guests arrive. Lots of cuddles are also available! During viewings we will discuss how much handling your pet enjoys. Rabbits need to be fully up-to-date with their vaccinations in order to board.

Rabbits 10 per night and Guinea pigs are £8 per night.£2 for each extra pet sharing the same hutch. These prices include ALL food. Booking is easy to do via our online booking system through our website. Customers can also book via telephone or messenger. Viewings are always welcome and I am more than happy to discuss your requirements.

Jane has looked after Gizmo every time we have been away for the past couple of years. She has made me feel so relaxed leaving him knowing he's well cared for. We are kept updated and it's lovely to see him out playing. From booking in to collection it's such a friendly service. Highly recommend for anyone with guinea pigs and bunnies. Thank you 🥰

Our Rabbit Rusty has stayed at the Rural Rabbit Retreat on a few occasions now. Rusty is always well cared for which puts our minds at rest to enjoy our holiday. I highly recommend the Rural Rabbit Retreat. Jane is a wonderful caring person & you can see how much she loves each of the animals that shes looking after.

Our two guinea pigs spent the Bank Holiday weekend at this lovely retreat. They settled well and were happy on collection. The dedicated owner even went out and found the exact dry nuggets from the pet shop I attend to make their stay even more enjoyable. I would strongly recommend this service to anyone. They are also in a delightful setting with fully equipped facilities. We have used other boarding services with our two guinea pigs who are now 4 1/2 years, but this was far superior!

Our daughter's guinea pig had a lovely two weeks holiday at the Rural Rabbit Retreat. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and the facilities looked lovely.

I would highly recommend The Rural Rabbit Retreat! Both my rabbits shared a hutch and they had plenty of space to move about as well as time to play out. Jane is so lovely and the area the animals stay is decorated lovely and kept clean. Having regular updates/pictures of them while I was away was a nice touch too🐰 Thank you Jane!

Wilbur was looked after very well. Jane kept me updated as he'd never been away before. Would definitely use again. Many thanks

Our 2 rabbits stayed at the rural rabbit retreat for 2 weeks this June/July. It is such a lovely place, with good size hutches and areas for the rabbits to run and play. Jane did a fantastic job looking after our buns and reassured us sending us a few pictures after a couple of days so we knew the rabbits had settled in well. Definitely recommended.
