    Default Rabbit Boarders: within an hour or so of Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire/East Mids M1

    Thank you to everyone who made recommendations to me already, but I'm still looking to expand my search for rabbit boarding :-)

    So I'm looking for rabbit boarding for my 2 outdoor bonded buns.
    Jasper isn't a brilliant traveller, so I'm ideally looking for:

    Travel time of up to 1 hour or so from Nottingham/Derby.
    Close to the M1 would be great but not a necessity.

    Also I've been looking & a few places are telling me not to go somewhere that puts bunnies in runs on grass, so somewhere that has a spacious set up that doesn't include grass runs would be good if that's better & safer.

    I'd really really appreciate any more suggestions and recommendations. I will be planning on visiting potential boarders before I book but it would mean so much more to me if I could find a place where someone has been and had their bunnies boarded before.

    Thank you!
    Laura

    May be a little too far, but thought I'd mention the Bunny Lodge in Hednesford - The Bunny Lodge (WS12 1DJ). The lady is called Debbie, her mobile number is 07531 217 539

    https://www.facebook.com/thebunnylodgehednesford

    I've seen her set up, it's fantastic, especially the pens in the heated facility Debbie does have runs but they are on hard standing so are disinfected
    Could you offer one of our bunnies in care a forever home?? RSPCA Walsall Bunnies

    Thanks Becky, that looks like a fab suggestion! I don't mind detours when someone can tell me a place is wonderful and worth it!

    Hi. I've just realised we must live fairly close. Where abouts are you? I researched some local ones before getting ours but I haven't tried any yet. Fortunately my sister has 2 also so we tend to help each other out. I know there are a couple close to where I live (Borrowash). No doubt you've found them when searching though.

    Hiya, I am on the edge of the A52 by Long Eaton/Toton! So yes very close to you, did u find any you thought looked particularly good? It's a lot easier when you know people with rabbits themselves who can help out isn't it!

    Forgot to mention that she charges a very reasonable 4.50 a day plus 2.25 for an additional Rabbit. Hay, grass and fresh veggies are included in the price

    I found one in Borrowash, one in spondon and then belper. All pretty close but haven't visited any so can't say what they are like. The one in Borrowash is a girl who has 4 at a time max, space outside and inside and runs etc. There is also a farm in elvaston which isn't advertised that run a small pet boarding (pussy willows cattery) They have plenty of space and would be the first I would look at locally from what I've seen. But like you say would want to visit and inspect first. I only really looked at some that are very close.
