Boarding Terms

    For the protection of all our rabbit guests Hop-it Holidays requires that the owners provide proof of vaccination against Myxomatosis and RVHD (viral haemorrhagic disease variants 1 and 2) upon booking.

  • This requires the Nobivac Myxo Plus Vaccine to be fully covered. Also 14-21 days after their last vaccination and their arrival date with us.

  • Animals must be in good health before boarding at Hop-It Holidays or may be turned away.

  • Pre-existing medical conditions must be disclosed prior to boarding and will be taken into account, veterinary advice may be sought and you must provide this information on the profile form. A pre-existing condition/ Ongoing medication wavier will need to be signed for you to approve us to continue any treatments disclosed. 

  • Hop-It Holidays does not accept any pet that is showing signs of injury, pregnancy or disease. If your pet needs veterinary assistance whilst in our care we will inform you or your emergency contact immediately.

  • Hop-it Holidays does not accept liability of injury between bond-mates (bonded animals sharing the same pen or housing as confirmed with emails and pricing). Animals are checked daily and you will be contacted immediately in the event this happens and the animals separated and the injured animal taken to the vets (see below for terms on veterinary assistance).

  • We cannot be held responsible for fleas/mites as these can be present in hay and bedding supplies. We do our utmost to prevent any such problems.

  • Should your pet/s need veterinary attention we will transport them to your nominated vet (if in area) or my vets for treatment by taxi as I dont drive. All vet fees and taxi fees will be required in full upon collection of you animals (paid via credit card or bank transfer). Receipts will be obtained from Vet and taxi company. 

  • Sadly small animals/birds can pass away with very little warning and it can be very quick after showing signs of illness. In the unlikely event that this should happen in our care, Hop-it Holidays will contact you immediately to discuss your wishes.

  • Hop-it Holidays  does not accept liability in the unlikely event that this may happen.

  • Hop-it Holidays will take no responsibility of any pet pregnancy as all our animals are kept separate unless otherwise stated by you that they are bonded.

  • Carriers are kept here to use to transport guests to the vets in an situation, where a vet visit is required. - Please see below about carrier policies.

  • If your pet is already boarding with us and you wish to collect your pet earlier than what is stated on booking form, you are still liable for the full amount.

  • If you do not collect your pet/s on the agreed day then you will be charged for any extra nights at the current rate.

  • Unlike dog and cat kennels, small animal boarding does not require a licence or have the same rules and regulations. All animals are left at their owners risk.

  • All pet owners must accept that accident, injury, illness, death, theft, public liability and all other insurances for the pet owner and their animal, whilst visiting and boarding with us, are the responsibility of the pet owner and that Hop-it Holidays are released of any and all such liabilities.

    Please bring your pets in an appropriate pet carrier, lined with clean newspaper and straw/hay for their travel time.
    If you bring your pet in something that is not a clean, lined, secure and appropriate sized carrier one will be purchased per animal from Pets at Home and you will be charged upon departure for each carrier purchased. COMPULSORY!!

    Unacceptable carriers:

  • Carrier bags, bags for life

  • Cardboard boxes- any size any pets. This included guinea pigs, birds, hamsters, rabbits etc

  • Dog crates or dog cages

  • Storage boxes

  • Military crates

  • Cages (any size). For those bringing their own cage, you still need to bring the animal separately in a carrier. I can't take your cage to the vets if it needs to see a vet.

    Correct Linings - due to injury, its best to line your carrier for transport.

  • Newspaper and Hay/ Straw

  • Puppy pads

  • Towels

    This is not a complete list. 

    Carriers are kept here, so if in an emergency, we can take your pet to the vets. We cannot do this if you do not bring a proper carrier which is clean and secure. 

  • If your carrier is not clean and requires cleaning, as this undermines all our efforts to keep bio-security standards as high as possible and puts all guests and my own rabbits at risk you will be charged £5 for me to clean it. I will deem what is considered unclean to the point I need to clean it. This will be a compulsory charge upon arrival and added to your invoice to pay before you leave. 

    These are non negotiable terms. 


  • Do not install the app on a childs phone under any circumstances
    . DO NOT change any of the admin set settings on the app. Especially Sounds settings. If we see settings/ notifications being turned on / speakers turned on or speaker volume increased see the following;---There will be a £20 fine for the changing of any settings set on the app.---

  • If a siren is set off that camera will immediately be removed and disabled and cameras access withdrawn. no refunds on camera fees

  • The siren has to be intentianlly set off by confirming twice and changing the admin setting on speakers that we have set. It cannot go off by accident in anyway.

  • If a siren goes off we can see which doorbell camera it was and the owner of the rabbit in that cottage will be fined £1000 immediately plus £1000 for each pet in residence at Hop-It Holidays that dies or is injured due to the siren going off and any and all vet fees incurred because off.

  • Other
    Abandoned Guests - 48 hours after the collection date has lapsed if we have no contact from you via, txt, phone, email or Facebook messenger the guests will be considered as ABANDONED and will look to be re-homed. The date of collection counts as the first 24 hours

Due to new FLiRT varriants spreading (April 2024) we will be putting in place the below protocols again

1. All drops off and collections will be door stop hand overs only.

2. Upon arrival / collection all owners will be asked to wear a face covering.
3. Please do NOT bring any children for arrival OR collection.  No one will be allowed on the property. 
a. Do not bring children (under 18's), if they need the toilet this will be denied.
b. Do bring a brolley! You will have to wait a few mins while we pack everything up and it might be raining.

4. If you have to make multiple trips taking animals and food/ belongings to the car, pets will be held in the hall so you can make multiple trips and take the pet carrier last.
5. Please do not bring anything other that your pets in a suitable carrier and food in an appropriate plastic, sealable tub. No accessories except that which has been previously agreed upon by Hop-It Holidays will be accepted. See Boarding Check list. 

We will have a door bell camera fitted so we will know who is at the front door and the bell push will be disinfected after ever press.


This all sound flipping post apocalyptic but I am immuno-compromised and If i come down with it Hop-It Holidays has to close temp or even permanently. No guests that we have at the time I get sick would not be able to leave due to you not being able to collect for a good 2 -3 weeks or longer and nor would guests be cared for to the usual standards as I would be physically unable to and husband would have to stay home too and possibly be unwell.

This is for everyone's safety and animals maximum comfort.
