About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsReptilesHamsters, Mice etc.

Family run business with 9 plus years of experience. Fully insured and my daughter is a veterinary nurse.


Many spacious outdoor hutches (with a run attached on request), as well as indoor hutches in the rabbit room. There is also boarding in the house but limited availability. All outdoor hutches have a thermal cover. All hutches are kept in a secure area that is escape proof.

We also offer a free roam room, solely for your family’s rabbits. The room consists of a comfy sofa, tunnels, hideaways, beds and toys. A home away from home for your bunnies.


Each animal can have access to a run for daily exercise, shared with the other permanent resident bunnies and other boarding animals.

Health & Hygiene:

All rabbits must be fully vaccinated with RHD plus and all permanent resident rabbits are up to date with this vaccine. We would take details of your vets contact information and would happily take your pet to the vets if needed (with a small charge for fuel). We can happily give medication too.
All hutches between stays are disinfected and cleaned.

It was the first time we have left our 🐹 hamster. Debbie was very reassuring she provided regular photo updates so we could tell Maple was happy. Debbie was caring for a variety of animals at the same time (cats, rabbits and birds) yer they all were calm rlaxed and content even when curious to check out the new arrivals which is a real indicator of her ability to care for them. Would definitely use again.

First time my 3 rabbits have had to go into boarding. Debbie was great from day one. After dropping them off for 2 weeks we received regular updates and photographs. Would definitely recommend D&H and we have booked again for another bunny holiday.

5 From Atholene on

Great service from start to finish looking after our 2 rats. Would highly recommend Debbie. Great accommodation area for the rats cage. Photo updates while we were away.

Have been away on holiday for 11 days and was recommended to have our rabbit Ruthie board with Debbie. We were very happy with the care that was given to Ruthie, especially as she stopped eating on her 5th day. Debbie discussed with me what she felt was the right thing to do which was to take Ruthie to the Vet. We were in full agreement with her and Ruthie had 2 visits to the Vet. Debbie watched over Ruthie and sent us regular pics and updates. Thankfully Ruthie got over this and she settled down at Debbie's, and even made friends with Debbie's cats. We would highly recommend Debbie to anyone wishing to board their rabbits.

D&H HOLIDAY PET CARE IS THE REAL DEAL! Thank you for taking such great care of Izzy while we were away. We were pleased to see her 'sneaky, cheeky, and posey' photos...she was well taken care of. She means a great deal to our family, and knowing that she was at home, safe and sound while we were on hols gave us great comfort and peace of mind. All is well! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 🫠Best Pet sitter ever! 🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰

I turned to Debbie as I was very stressed trying to bond my two buns together, she said she has bonded a few pairs but never professionally and would try give it a go. The full time the buns were there they were safe and happy. I got daily updates and messages about how they were doing. I would definitely recommend she is lovely and really tried her best, they are now bonded and love being together at home! I will definitely come back if I need boarding. Couldn't be more grateful with everything she did 🐰ðŸ'—

Brilliant, Debbie was really friendly and efficient through the booking process and took fantastic care of my rabbit Tom during an extended stay over Christmas and New Year. I would highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to use again. Thank you Debbie.

5 From Christine Ramsay on

Would highly recommend! Our bunny stayed in the free roam indoor section over Christmas. Despite Debbie being run off her feet, we still received photos daily and he was even sent home with a little Xmas gift which I thought was such a lovely touch. Our bunny was poorly leading up to his stay so I was worried, but Debbie was so knowledgeable and caring towards him so I had nothing to worry about. If we go away again, I would not hesitate in booking Felix in again. Thank you D&H holiday pet care x

Absolutely fantastic! Great communication from the initial enquiry and an extremely professional service. This was the first time leaving my house rabbit with somebody else. Debbie was very friendly and had everything ready to make my rabbit feel settled. It was reassuring to know that Debbie's daughter is a Vet nurse. We received lovely updates whilst we were away. Our rabbit made friends with Debbie's cat and did not want to leave! Una will definitely be back for her holidays!

5 From Nicola Lawson on

Debbie was amazing looking after my 4 elderly rats while I was on holiday. She sent lots of updates and also cared for them wonderfully during the heat wave. I would definitely board with Debbie again, it was a relief knowing they were so well cared for while being away.

We asked Debbie to look after our two young guinea pigs Molly & Mable for 8 nights. Debbie reassured us that they were doing well and sent us regular photos so we could see them. Molly & Mable have enjoyed their stay and we will board them here again in the future. Really good service. Thank you

Debbie looked after our guinea pigs and French lop for several days. The environment they stayed in was spotlessly clean and they were well looked after during their stay. Debbie was friendly and so accommodating with times due to my work schedule and family commitments. Highly recommended.

I placed my two guinea pigs into the hands of Debbie at D&H and I was completely satisfied with the care they received. I was a nervous first-time-leaving- the- ‘babies' owner, but I was kept up to date and reassured with pictures and texts from Debbie. I will recommend to a friend and will definitely be using her services again! The guinea pigs loved their little holiday. Thank you

5 From Poppy on

Debbie has looked after my little rabbit Jet several times over the last few years. Jet couldn't be in better hands and Debbie is kind, caring and thoughtful and always goes above and beyond. She sends daily updates and photographs which is much appreciated when you are aware and gives peace of mind as to how your pet is. Thank you so much, Jet looks forward to seeing you soon!

I would recommend D & H Holiday Pet Care to anyone. They have looked after my cats for the last 4 years and done a superb job! I can tell they love animals so much and go above and beyond to take care of pets in their care. I arrange my holidays around them now as wouldn't want to start looking anywhere else. They keep me updated with photos and messages, making my time away enjoyable and worry free. They are reliable and very trustworthy. Thank you D&H you are amazing!
