AN ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL HUTCHED BOARDING
If viewing this on a smart phone, view sideways :)
We understand that finding suitable boarding for house rabbits and rabbits who are used to having lots of room can be a concern.
So we offer an alternative to traditional hutched boarding, providing our guests with an indoor, luxury, fully furnished, 6' x 3' 'bunny suite' complete with a balcony, so your pets can fulfill their need to hop, jump, explore and play in a safe environment, whatever the weather.
We welcome viewings as we understand owners can be anxious when leaving their beloved pets when they jet off on holiday, especially if it's for the first time.
Please contact us to book a viewing and have a look around. We are always happy to show you where your bunnies will stay and how they will spend their time here.
We have 3 bunny suites. The Blossom, the Blubell Suite and the Honeysuckle suite. We feel that by only having a few rabbits in residence at any one time, that we can give each guest the pampering and attention they need during their luxury holiday.
Each suite is 6ft long x 3ft wide with a balcony area permanently fixed at the end. The balcony is 12" high so there's plenty of room underneath too. The suites are open topped (as the partitions are just over 4ft high) so this gives house bunnies that 'open feeling' that they are used to - so they don't feel confined.
We designed our hotel based on the things that house bunnies have around them on a daily basis: i.e coffee tables to sleep under, furniture to jump on and places to hide and snooze.
Each suite has a plastic pet bed filled with hay and straw (or you can bring a big fluffy fleece blanket), a play stool to jump on, a litter box, toys and a plastic tunnel or a wooden playsticks bridge. Bunnies have the choice of having their water from a glass bottle or a ceramic bowl. All food bowls are provided.
Whichever suite your rabbit stays in, they will have a colour co-ordinated box to keep their personal belongings in.
All the suites, toys and litter boxes, including the 'Vanilla Villa', are steam cleaned/disinfected thoroughly before new guests check in. We use a professional veterinary disinfectant called Anigene (and Virkon when we do a deep clean). Bottles and bowls are all sterilised in a steam steriliser. Cleanliness is very important to us, as it's 'healthier' for your pets to stay in a clean, dust and germ free environment.
Like catteries or kennels, rabbit boarders also insist that rabbits are fully vaccinated before they enter boarding. Each establishment will have their own policy on this.
SPAYED AND NEUTERED
For the comfort of all our guests we only board neutered male & spayed female rabbits (if they are old enough to have had these procedures). This ensures that our suites can be cleaned effectively after each pet leaves - ready for new guests.
HOME FROM HOME
We ask that you bring your pets in a fully operational pet carrier. This is for their own safety should we need to use it during their stay. We only provide furnishings and toys that can be disinfected/steam cleaned between guests, so we encourage owners to bring their chew toys, clean blankets and favourite things with them - as this also helps pets to settle in.
Sometimes it helps if you bring a little 'used' litter from your bunnies litter box at home, so their litter box here will then smell familiar to them.
Please don't bring indoor cages as we may not be able to accommodate them or store them until you return.
HOUSE BUNNIES AND OUTDOOR RABBITS
During the winter months our lodge is heated to keep our house bunny guests comfortable. If your rabbit lives outdoors in winter, we can discuss availability and what is most suitable for them.
ACCESS TO GRASS
It is impossible to disinfect a grassy area, so we don't allow boarding bunnies to exercise on our lawn. We find that guests are quite happy to chill out in their spacious holiday suites, without the need to go outside.
