About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsHamsters, Mice etc.

Based in Yateley, Hampshire, we provide a 5* luxury boarding service for rabbits and guinea pigs.  We are a family run business and Ashleigh is home all day to make sure your precious ones are happy and content.  We initially set up the business as for many years we have looked after animals for friends and family and at one point we had 3 guinea pigs and 10 rabbits of our own!  We currently have 2 mini lops who are just adorable.  Your furry friend will become part of our family during their stay with us and we are more than happy to give you regular updates for your peace of mind if you so wish.  We have a fantastic veterinary centre just across the road from us which is perfect in the unlikely event that your loved one became unwell.  Please have a look at our gallery which shows the spacious accommodation available.  You are more than welcome to come and take a look around before booking, just give us a call to arrange an appointment.

Accommodation:

RABBIT SUITE - For our bunny guests we have 3 luxury suites which are housed within our purpose built rabbit cottage.  These suites are perfect for a single bunny or bonded pair.  Each suite has 30 sq. ft. of space and has a hop up to a bedding area where they can sleep, hideaway or just be up higher to have a little nose at life outside.  These suites are full height so feel nice and spacious.  The accommodation is fully insulated, secure and heated during winter months.  They also have access to an outside run in good weather - this is on hardstanding as grass cannot be hygienically cleaned between guests.

RABBIT SUITE WITH ATTACHED RUN - As above but with the addition of a small door where the bunnies can access an outside run all day which provides an extra 20 sq ft of space. The run has a waterproof covering so they can even go out when it is raining. The door is locked at night so that they are safe inside the accommodation. 50 sq ft in total!

RABBIT PLUS SUITE - We also have a super luxury suite for rabbits which is housed within our rabbit cottage and it has 60 sq. ft. of space.  There is a hop up to a bedding area where they can go and hide away and get nice and cosy.  We also have a platform in there where they can jump up and have a nose outside or just chill out.  This suite is full height so feels nice and spacious.  It would be perfect for larger breeds, house bunnies, groups, or anyone else looking for room to have a wonderful holiday.  The accommodation is fully insulated, secure and heated during winter months. There is also a small door to the side of the suite where they can access another 20 sq. ft. of space outside whenever they choose during the day - this door is locked overnight. 80 sq. ft. of space in total!

GUINEA SUITE - For our guinea pig guests we have 8 luxury suites which are housed within 2 purpose built guinea pig cottages - 4 suites in each. Each suite has 20 sq. ft. of space and it does feel lovely and cosy inside the cottage so they all feel safe and secure.  The guinea pig suites are all on one level and at one end they have a cosy bedding area filled with hay where they can sleep or hide away if they so wish.  There is also a "pop out" at the end of each suite which allows the guineas access to fresh air as and when they choose. This is locked overnight. The accommodation is fully insulated, secure and heated during winter months. 

We have a radio on in all cottages to provide all of the fur babies with added comfort.

​All three cottages are purpose built and are fully secure and insulated to keep our guests warm in the winter and cool in the summer months.  We have large trees behind the cottages which are perfect for protection in the hot summer months as they always provide the perfect shade.  In the cooler months we have heaters to keep the chill at bay.  We open the double doors at the front of the cottages so that our guests can look out onto our pretty garden and get plenty of fresh air but they are still safe and secure in their own suites.

​The doors are all bolted and padlocked when we pop out and at night time, so that everyone is kept cosy and safe.   Safety is a top priority for us and we want you to feel reassured that we always have safety in mind. 

We provide a tunnel, toys and lots of love for both rabbits and guinea pigs but please feel free to bring along any items you feel may give your fur babies additional home comforts.  We pop in and out all day to check that our guests are happy, comfortable and eating well.  We will happily send you text updates or WhatsApp photos if you would like extra peace of mind.  Please look at the gallery for photos of our accommodation.

Exercise:

The rabbits have access to outside runs on hardstanding when we have nice weather. We do not put bunnies on the grass as this cannot be hygienically cleaned between guests.

Health & Hygiene:

We clean daily, and more if need be, and each suite is thoroughly cleaned with veterinary level disinfectant between stays.

We are so pleased to have found Dandelion Cottage! It is lovely boarding and you can really tell just how much Ashleigh cares for all the animals. It's so nice going away and having peace of mind that our mini lop is in great hands, well looked after and always comes back happy. We absolutely recommend Dandelion Cottage!

I can not recommend Dandelion Cottage enough. My boys love it there and get so excited when I leave them. So spacious and even have an outside area :). You also get regular photos and videos and so can enjoy my holiday feeling at ease whilst my boys are also having an amazing holiday.

I would like to say a massive thank you to Ashley for caring for my rabbits Sienna & Harley they where very well looked after and given lots of attention while I was away. Ashley kept me up to date on my bunnies and sent me photos The accommodation was absolutely out of this world very spacious and immaculately clean. Ashley is so caring and friendly and works very hard to look after the animals boarding in her care. I definitely would absolutely recommend Ashley's Rabbit Boarding 🐇 she is simply amazing! This is the place for your rabbits 5 star 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 A massive thank you ashley 😊 🙏 we will be back on are next holiday❤ Gabbi Reid

5 From Gabrielle Reid on

I found Ashleigh a couple of years ago now and was very impressed with the space the bunnies (and Guinea pigs) had and how nicely the space was decorated! I'd never taken Milo to a bunny hotel before but I'm always pleased with how well he gets looked after and the update photos are a nice touch - it's good to see he's in safe hands! Milo has been looked after by Ashleigh on lots of occasions now and he happily runs away from me as soon as we get there…so it looks like he loves it too!

5 From Hannah on

Ashleigh cared for Simba and Pepper last summer and I'm hoping she will do as again. I was blown away when I first saw her boarding accommodation which is is so clean, spacious and well maintained. She cares for her visitors as if they were her own and nothing is too much trouble. She sent photos via WhatsApp so I could see they had settled and even moved my two buns as they had a noisy neighbour and one was looking a bit anxious! She is very kind and caring and I am so glad I found her.I would not hesitate to recommend Ashleigh and Dandelion Cottage to anyone who wants peace of mind when they leave their fur babies.

5 From Anne Luck on

Dandelion Cottage is a lovely sanctuary for rabbits and Ashleigh provides a cosy & caring environment for her fluffy guests! Idris, my daughter's house rabbit, was very happy there and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dandelion Cottage to others.

5 From Jenny Monk on

Cannot believe how lucky we were finding Dandelion Cottage, it is such a lovely place! Our rabbit, Tonks, has stayed at Dandelion Cottage several times now and she absolutely loves it! Ashleigh takes such good care of her, the rabbit suite she stays in is always immaculately clean and has everything a bunny could ask for! We wouldn't take Tonks anywhere else 😄

5 From Jenny Monk on

Our guinea pigs have stayed here several times over the last year, and are always looked after so well, with regular photos sent to us, which shows how Ashleigh goes above and beyond and is very passionate about looking after all of the pets that stay there. The suites there are amazing with lots of space for the rabbits and guinea pigs, and are always exceptionally clean. We can relax knowing they are being looked after so well when we drop them off, and they never seem to want to leave when we come to collect them 😁 I can't recommend Dandelion Cottage highly enough.

5 From Rob Squires on

We used Dandelion Cottage 4 times for our Guinea Pigs in 2021 and have had an excellent experience each time. They are given a lovely large space to sleep, eat, run and play, with lots of tunnels and mounds of hay. Ashleigh has a friendly, helpful manner and it's clear that she genuinely loves animals.

5 From Helena Jones on

We took our 5 guinea pigs to Dandelion Cottage for 16 days. The accommodation is amazing, spacious, clean and secure, and Ashleigh is passionate about what she does. She even bonded our single boar with one of our pairs of girls. We would definitely use Dandelion cottage again and highly recommend it for anyone who loves their guinea pigs and rabbits.

5 From Natasha westlake on

I found researching places to board our bunnies quite daunting. After much research, I found Dandelion cottage and I am so glad and grateful that I did. I hated the idea of our bunnies being in small hutches so I was impressed by the space that Dandelion cottage had to offer. After numerous phone calls, emails and questions to Ashleigh, who could not have been any kinder or more helpful - I truly believe she sees and looks after your animals as if they are her own - we arranged a visit, where I asked more questions and wanted to get a feel for the place. The place was immaculate and incredibly well maintained. Ashleigh was informative and knowledgable, especially as one of our rabbits receives daily medication - this was not an issue and arrangements were discussed should they need to visit a vet whilst in her care. We agreed to book and we were presented with terms and conditions that were clear and useful - she wanted to know lots of information about our rabbits to get them a world class holiday! A drop off and pick up time was arranged that suited us and our plans, and we were always kept up to date with photos, videos and messages. When I messaged to ask how they were, I always got a quick response and I never felt like I was an inconvenience or was fussing. When we collected our rabbits it was evident that they had been loved and cared for. Ashleigh is truly a kind and caring person and we have already booked for our bunnies to stay again this year.

5 From Sarah Murphy on

Dandelion Cottage is absolutely wonderful! The facilities are outstanding as is the level of care that my rabbits receive when they stay there. The enclosures are not only beautiful, they are clean, warm and weatherproof, and offer different areas to keep my rabbits stimulated. They have plenty of room to run around and jump. Every time my rabbits stay at Dandelion Cottage I am sent photos of them which is lovely to see. I highly recommend Dandelion Cottage and I'm so happy that I found this wonderful place for my bunnies. Five stars isn't enough!

5 From Michelle Lenan on

I came across Dandelion cottage whilst googling for somewhere to board my two bunnies. Everywhere I had found more local to me looked like bunny prisons, small hutches in dark, cold looking sheds. I was starting to stress about it and arranged for them to stay at my Mums (she lives 2.5 hours from me!) Fortunately I then came across Dandelion cottage. I knew straight away this place was amazing. My two bunnies stayed with Ashleigh at Dandelion cottage for two weeks whilst we were on honeymoon. When we arrived, the place looked even more beautiful than the pictures, the facilities are amazing and the design of the out sheds is like a work of art! Once inside it felt warm and snuggly (my two are indoor rabbits and heat worshippers) so I was worried they'd be cold outside but there was no chance of that there as it's heated to a nice temperature. They stayed in the master suit. All the suits looked fab, but I would highly recommend the mast suit if you have more than one rabbit or very curious bunnies like mine! They loved exploring round and Ashleigh moved stuff around in there to keep them entertained. Ashleigh has two of her own rabbits so she knows all about caring for rabbits. I wouldn't hesitate leaving them with her at dandelion cottage again. We received regular updates with photos which was very comforting. When I arrived to pick them up they looked so happy and at home (I was worried they'd be disappointed when they got back to their own home!) 5 star

5 From Laura on

It is safe to say that we were blown away by Dandelion Cottage. Dandelion Cottage were second to none from the moment we went to first visit them all the way up to when we picked our bunny up after her holiday there. The accommodation was beautiful and bespoke and Isla had plenty of room to safely explore and run around. It was by far the cleanest and safest bunny hotel we visited. The regular updates and pictures of Isla via WhatsApp were so reassuring and allowed us to relax whist we were away knowing that she was at a home away from home. Isla looked so relaxed which was lovely to see. We are so lucky to have found an amazing bunny hotel that we highly recommend. I am so grateful for Ashleigh and her daughter for everything they did for Isla ❤️

5 From Cassie B on

Oh my, this is an absolute gem of a place. Our guinea pig Jeff had an amazing stay with the lovely Ashleigh - who is so attentive and caring to the animals. She goes the extra mile to give these little fur babies a home from home experience. The hutches are all spotless, dietary requirements are accommodated for and the hay/veg/water are all fresh. The regular updates are such a lovely touch too - Ashleigh really cares about her clients, the pet and the pets owner!

5 From Lisa Oldreive on

Boarders Response:Such a lovely review - thank you so much Lisa for your kind words and I am definitely missing my little friend Jeff! 🥰 thank you ❤️x

Thank you so much Ashleigh for taking the best care of our little man Twiglet! It was so lovely to see Dandelion Cottage (which is even cuter than the pictures show!) we already have Twiglets next couple of stays planned! Thank you again! X

5 From Leanne on

Boarders Response:Aww 🥰 love Twiglet ❤️ Thanks so much and we all loved having him 🥰xxx

Thank you so much Ashleigh for looking after our girls for the week. It was our first time using a rabbit hotel and they definitely had 5 star treatment. We will be returning in the summer and I know our precious bunnies will be in good hands. Can't thank you enough for taking such good care of them.

5 From Melanie Cunnington on

Boarders Response:Aww 🥰 thanks Mel, your girls are a dream and it was my pleasure xxx

Cannot recommend Dandelion Cottage highly enough. First time we have had pets and needed a service such as this. My children left their guinea pigs in a wonderful environment and received regular photos and updates, it left them very happy in the knowledge their pets were well and being loved. We have already booked again for our next holiday. Thank you Ashleigh.

5 From Mark Turner on

Boarders Response:Thank you so much Mark, it was my pleasure. I look forward to seeing you next time xxx

My rabbits stayed with Ashleigh before Christmas and I could not recommend this boarding facility enough. Ashleigh is such a kind and caring lady and her accommodation for rabbits and guinea pigs is amazing! So much thought and care has gone into this business and Ashleigh sent me regular pictures on WhatsApp so I could see how my bunnies were settling in. It was great to see them eating and chilling together as I could then relax on my holiday. I will definitely be booking again as soon as we can.
