Our lovely large, spacious indoor rabbit hutches start from 10ft (3 meters) in size and are housed within a purpose built lodge kept to indoor conditions. Keeping them safe, secure and warm during the colder months (heated to around 18'c) and air conditioned during the hot summer months.

We also have large purpose built indoor playrooms (@38sqft of floor space) for rabbits and guinea pigs which suit the guests who are not used to being housed within a cage.

We have a large outdoor hutch and great outdoor runs for those sunny summer days.

We offer lots of space in a safe, stress free, stimulating and fun environment. All our guests receive one to one care and attention and time outside their hutch every day.

We have different set ups to suit every type of rabbit, guinea pig, hedgehog, hamster, gerbil or rat.

We also offer all-inclusive boarding for birds such as budgies, canaries, cockatiels, lovebirds and parakeets. We provide spacious bird cages with all toys, perches, bowls, food and treats included. All our bird guests have time outside their cage each day to exercise their wings.

We will not accommodate any species of animal that would be a natural predator to Rabbits, Guinea Pigs etc such as ferrets as this is unfair and stressful for our other guests. We dedicate our boarding facility to Small Animals only.

Each indoor hutch has its own allocated outdoor run. Each run has shelters/ tunnels and toys for a stimulating environment.

My two male guinea pigs had a great time at Crumpets over the Christmas holidays. They stayed in a large hutch and tried lots of new foods as well as their regular favourites. I received regular updates about their well being and they seemed very content when I picked them up. You can tell Nikki truly cares about all her small guests and is happy to help with any issue that might worry you. I can highly recommend Crumpets.

Crumpets is a really wonderful place and Nikki is truly outstanding - a thoroughly amazing person - kind, caring, capable, thoughtful and extremely knowledgeable. She took such good care of our poorly guinea pig and nursed her back to health. We can never thank her enough for her kindness and wisdom. We cannot recommend her highly enough! She is worthy of a hundred stars not just 5!

5 From Jessica on

Our guinea pigs had a wonderful stay at Crumpets during our recent holiday. We really appreciated the updates and photos of them during their stay. We are very impressed with the level of care they received and would recommend Crumpets to anyone looking for small animal boarding :)

5 From Lana on

Bertie and Gail had a fantastic holiday at Crumpets. Nikki is incredibly bunny-savvy, and created a really personal experience to make sure they settled in well (including their favourite veg and lots of cardboard toys to keep them occupied). She totally understands how stressful it can be to leave your furbabies, and did a great job of putting my mind at rest. Thanks Nikki!

5 From Anna on

I have already posted this as a google review but I wanted to share my review here as well: I have boarded my guinea pigs at Crumpets twice now (with another stay coming up) and I would not hesitate to recommend Nikki's excellent service to anyone looking to board their smallies. My guinea pigs were given excellent care and seemed very happy and relaxed when I went to collect them. Nikki also took care of a poorly pig for me and she was absolutely wonderful, going above and beyond in looking after my little one and giving me regular updates on her condition. I could not have asked for more! I am so grateful to have found Crumpets and I know I can trust Nikki to take the best care of my babies while I'm away! Nikki, if you're reading this - you are wonderful and I'm so glad I found you!

Our beautiful bunny daughter Lils has just returned from her first holiday at Crumpets. We have put off going on holiday and leaving her somewhere as she suffers from gut stasis when moved or when we leave her with friends to look after. But after a year we thought we should bite the bullet and had Crumpets recommended to us through our vet. Even though there were other boarding facilities nearer to us we wanted only the very best and where we could feel confident she was in the best hands so booked her in to Crumpets. Before her stay I was impressed with the amount of information they required to get to know Lil and her "quirks" so that they were fully prepared for her stay there. I felt like she was in such safe hands especially as Nikki had been a Vet herself before. Throughout her stay she kept in touch every day with updates as to how she was doing and I felt so reassured and confident that she was in the best place and having a fun holiday of her own. Going on holiday has never been the same since having bunnies as I have never fully relaxed always worrying about them. But this experience has taught me that there is no need to live in fear as Nikki made it home from home for her, if not better! I am sure she was almost disappointed when I picked her up to take her home! I would have no qualms in booking a holiday again now and I am sure Lils can't wait for her next stay in her holiday home. Well worth the journey there, and well worth the reasonable cost- you just can't put a price on peace of mind! Especially with a risky bunny like her. I cannot recommend Nikki and Crumpets enough!

5 From Sal on

We highly recommend Crumpets as Nikki looks after all the animals with love and much attention. She has helped us with our diva rabbit Cocoa so much. She is always a calm rabbit when she comes home.

From Melanie on

It was my first time using Crumpet's and having had a few bad experiences with previous bunny boarding facilities I was a tad nervous, but from the very first communication it was flawless. We were provided with lots of information before the buns boarded, everything was thought of and noted and when we dropped them off the facilities were wonderful. Everything was ready for their arrival and Nikki was sure to make sure they were settled in their new hutch in their own time. She gave us an email update the next day of their stay so we knew they'd settled and were eating, drinking and using the toilet, which allowed us to relax and enjoy our holiday safe in the knowledge the buns were doing good. We had regular updates and Nikki uploaded a video to facebook during their stay so we could see they were doing well! I've never felt comfortable leaving the rabbits anywhere before, even with family but I trust Nikki completely with them. We'll definitely be bring the buns back when we next go on holiday!

5 From Erin on

We've used Crumpets many times for our rabbits. It is a fantastic pet boarding place run by Nikki. She has lots of experience with small animals and she is also a Qualified Veterinary Nurse which came in handy as 2 of the rabbits were ill when we were away. Nikki always keeps us up-to-date about how they are doing which is always appreciated.

From paola hows on

I recently booked the grandchildren's rabbit 'Bubbles' into Crumpets and was enthralled with how much Bubbles seemed to enjoy her stay. I looked her up on Facebook whilst I was away and she was happily distracted munching on food ball trying to get to what I now know was dried pineapple - her new favourite treat. I found this very open and reassuring being able to check on her. Nikki is so knowledgeable and not only looked after Bubbles fantastically well but gave me so many good tips and advice. I was allowed into the pet area to settle Bubbles in upon arrival which was great. It is a delightful place. I could have stayed myself. Thank you Nikki you have a truly lovely small animal 'hotel'. I will bring a Bubbles back and I would recommend you without any hesitation. And finally Nikki you will be interested to know I have even purchased the de-moisturiser, making my own wonderful treats for Bubbles so thank you that and for everything.

5 From Christine Smith on

Discovering Crumpets was the best thing ever. Nikki gives the best care to our bunnies (we believe they are spoiled rotten when we are away) and we can go on holiday without any worries. We get regular updates and love being able to see pictures of them on the facebook page. Sometimes I think my rabbits don't want to come home!

5 From Lorraine Want on

My bunnies have been staying at Crumpets for 3 years and every time they come home calm and relaxed, as if they've enjoyed their own little holiday. I wouldn't consider leaving my buns with anyone else because the quality of care they receive at Crumpets is more than I could ever hope. Nikki at Crumpets is absolutley wonderful, and doesn't mind sending me daily emails and photos whilst I'm away on holiday. It's not just the great boarding experience that my buns receive at Crumpets, but Nikki is an expert in all things bunny related and was a great support when our boy sadly passed away. She helped us through the whole process, giving us information to help him feel better whilst staying at the vets and then helping us with our grief. When the time came to bond our girl with another boy, well I don't know what to say, we could not have coped without her. We boarded our girl and newly adopted boy at crumpets for a few days, and wow I can't believe how good a job Nikki did. She was on hand to answer my 20 emails a day asking for constant updates! Both bunnies are now home and new BFFs. If you love your bunnies like I do, then you will want the best for them. And you can't get better than crumpets :)

Teddy and Bronte had a holiday at Crumpets and were sad to leave. Nikki is so calm and the environment was perfect for the guinea pigs. We will always go back to Crumpets.
