I am unable to board rabbits in the hutches.

I like guests to board in the same unit, however It may not always be possible to board in a specific unit, where possible a comparative or larger unit will be offered.

All our guests are covered under our boarding insurance. Should your pet become unwell whilst in our care and we need to claim for their veterinary treatment a £45.00 excess will be charged to you. All other veterinary cost will be met by us, however conditions apply. Please ask for more information if you would like clarification of what is not covered. 

We feed our pets on a range of Burgess Excel and supply this food free of charge.

All prices include fresh fruit and vegetables, meadow hay and Burgess Excel.

If your pets enjoy a different diet to Burgess Excel we kindly ask you to supply enough of your pets usual food to last for the duration of their stay, this is due to the delicate nature of a rabbits digestive system.
