Reviews from Our Guests
I have been bringing my boisterous rescue guinea pig boys to Sue for a while now. She is the best. (Once I had to find another boarding place cos Sue was away and it was horrible). At Sue's they have the very best care. My boys come back chilled and well. Sue is very attentive, knowledgeable and understands completely the needs and quirkiness of all the animals in her care. I'd move in myself if I could. Ha ha
From Bridget on
Well what can I say apart from the fact that Sue who runs Hoppers & Squeakers is just brilliant. She frequently looks after my Buster (a rather large rabbit) and cares for him as if he were her own. Sue sends updates and videos of Buster every morning that we are away which makes me know that he is being very well cared for. Sue even has a camera that she can watch her boarders when she is indoors, she gives her job 100% love and attention. I would never trust anyone else looking after Buster now. Buster is a poorly rabbit as suffers with bad teeth and weepy eyes and Sue does everything in her power to get him to eat more hay (which he is not a great lover of), and bathes his eyes. Its fair to say that Buster enjoys his holidays with Sue as much as we love our holidays!!!
From Nicky Bullman on
I highly recommend Sue's boarding service - she took care of our two female guinea pigs for a week in August while we went camping, and I think their accommodation was more luxurious than ours!
Everything was extremely clean and well-maintained, Sue herself is lovely and she clearly enjoys working with the animals in her care. She sent us videos of our girls enjoying feasts of fresh veggies and herbs, and lounging on the lawn in the outdoor pen.
They were relaxed, happy and healthy when I went to collect them, as were all the other animals I saw there.
We will definitely use Hoppers and Squeakers again.
From Sarah George on
I can't recommend Hoppers and Squeakers enough!
Sue looked after our bunny rabbit when we went on holiday
The accommodation was great is an understatement, with indoor accommodation and had additional grassed play pens outside, which sue utilised for our rabbit. Top quality hay was provided.
Sue really cared and looked after our rabbit which is what you need when you go away.
Videos and pics were sent regularly , Our rabbit was very happy at Hoppers and Squeakers and returned home very calm,settled and playful.
Will not use anyone else apart from Sue.
Thanks Hoppers and Squeakers.
From Darren D on
Sue was wonderful and my 2 rabbits were very well looked after during my 2 week holiday.
My rabbits were at a stage of being nearly bonded but id kept them apart at night due to a previous fight. Sue, however took her time to keep a close eye on them both and they managed to stay together the entire time without any issues!
Since they have been home, they have been inseparable and I cannot thank her enough!
Leaving your pets when you go away can be nerve wracking but I can honestly say I felt completely worry free. Sue sends regular videos and updates and I could see how happy they both were.
Definitely book Hoppers and Squeakers for your furries! You'll not regret it! :)
From Stacey Toms on
Would highly recommend Hoppers & Squeakers as I had total confidence that my pet budgie had received exceptional care and attention. I was sent regular updates throughout his stay and received a friendly and approachable service. I would definitely board my budgie with Sue again.
From Lisa Clark on
Sue has looked after my bunnies twice whilst I had a my holidays last year, they actually seemed to have just a nice time as us ðŸ˜‚
Sue is very attentive to their needs, listens to what you want for your pets, has lovely living and exercise areas too.
As soon as I booked my holiday for this year, I booked my buns back in with Sue straight away, there's no where else I'd want them to be ðŸ˜Š even though my adult son will be home, I know the bunnies will get better care with Sue
Also, Sue sends regular updates photos and updates so I'm never left worrying about how there are
Thanks Sue, see you in the summer ðŸ˜Š
From Angie on
Seriously such a great service, Sue is amazing and made us all feel at ease when leaving our little Aiko (Mini lop) first time away from us during the holidays. We got updates regularly in the form of videos and messages. A lovely clean and hygienic space with a great set-up. Thank you Sue and the team at Hoppers and squeakers.
From Kayes Uddin on
I left my hamster here for 5 weeks. I got lots of photos and videos of my hamster (Ronnie). She was amazing with looking after Ronnie and when I went to pick Ronnie up, she was really happy and relaxed, just like at home. I would really recommend, especially if you're nervous about leaving your pet. I would definitely leave Ronnie here again!
From Grace on
Excellent service! Sue cares so much about the animals she looks after and I have no worries when my rabbits are with her. She sends updates and cares for them just as I would like. The boarding she offers is a real gem and I highly recommend Hoppers and Squeakers to anybody.
From Kara on
Picked up my buns yesterday after a week long stay with Sue at hoppers & squeakers animal boarding and am very happy with the overall service received. The accommodation, communication and photo updates could not of been any better. Pleased to say my buns seemed very happy with their stay and came home happy bunnies! If you need a holiday home for your small pets I strongly recommend. Many thanks Sue and we will definitely book them in with you next time we go away again.

My rabbit & Guinea pig stayed with Sue for over 2 weeks & received the best standard of care at this boarding.
Thank you Sue.
I was very impressed with the cleanliness, generous size cages & runs plus they got to have daily exercise & grass with the outdoor runs ðŸ‘
This is a excellent service from start to finish & we will definitely be back for another stay soon.
*****Highly recommend this company. *****
From Carley Bussey on
Hoppers & Squeakers Small Animal Boarding is 5 âï¸ and beautiful place for rabbits. My both rabbits received VIP stay, fantastic care for few days and they were so good looked after. Sue is wonderfully host and make me and my bunnies feel so welcome. My rabbits was so happy and relaxed over the stay at Hoppers & Squeakers Small Animal Boarding and don't want to go back when I come to pick them back. I am looking forward to book again stay for my rabbits soon. Thank you so much for amazing care. ðŸ˜Š
From Kate Kasia on
Sue looked after our guinea pigs whilst we was away for a few days. Nothing was too much trouble. She made me feel completely at ease knowing our animals would be looked after wonderfully. Sue kept us updated with photos and videos, in which you could see our guinea pigs were happy and content and actually having a lovely time. I would highly recommend Sue to all my friends and family and I will 100% be using Hoppers & Squeakers again in the near future ðŸ'• xxxx
From April Jonas on
I found â€œHoppers and Squeakersâ€ through this site. I cannot fault them at all. Sue was so friendly, and it's plain to see how excellent she is with the animals. My daughters Guinea pig loved his stay there.
Will continue to use in the future.
