Exceptional care for your little loved ones!




After much demand from family and friends and given our perfect setting we decided to offer a boarding facility.

We are full time, dedicated and offer exceptional care for your precious pets in luxury, sizeable accommodation. 

Your pets won't be left unattended due to other work commitments, this is our work and we are passionate and fully committed to providing a loving caring environment full time.

Pets can be groomed, put out for a few hours, or can enjoy being out all day if they prefer, we have plenty of space.  As we are full time we are on hand during the day & evening, giving you peace of mind that they are very well looked after throughout their stay.

All our customers comment on what a great facility we are...


Our luxury boarding summerhouse is nestled in our garden. We have sizable grounds and endless space and grass for your pets to enjoy. 

Located on Green Lane, Yarm we are easily accessible from all surrounding areas.  Our  house is called Rosedene, Green Lane, TS15 9EH.  Sat Nav does take you to the opposite side of the road!!, we are the last cream bungalow just before traffic lights and hump bridge to Yarm Railway Station.


Please ring the bell beside our double wooden gates when you arrive. We are open all year round including Xmas and New Year and viewing is welcome by appointment.  School holidays do get booked up quickly far in advance so book early to avoid disappointment.

We offer boarding holidays for Rabbits and Guinea Pigs for long and short stay breaks and can accommodate single or bonded families.

We also offer a collection and drop off service taking the stress out of a last minute dash before or after your holiday.

Please call or email us to discuss your pets requirements. Its important that you let us know all about your pet so we can make their stay as pleasant as possible.


 What our customers say about us ...

Great place to have your pets looked after.

Would highly recommend - K Scott Nov 18

Can't possibly rate anything less. My piggies were well looked after, and even brought some treats home with them! Can't complain - especially with some lovely photos being sent over the duration of their stay. I'm glad the weather stayed nice so they could play in the grass. Will definitely bring them back here! V Hilton June 18

Our piggies home after a weekend here. Lovely place and Rachel was so friendly. They have come home so relaxed happy. Would recommend here to anyone. L Hilton June 18

Used Yarm Bunny boarding for the first time and can’t recommend it highly enough. Fantastic facilities and our rabbit was taken really good care of while we were on holiday. Will definitely use it again 5* - C Grylls May 18

Well, I’m not sure who had the best holiday, us or the rabbits!
We were recommended Yarm bunny boarding by a friend and we couldn’t be any more impressed. What a professional, loving and friendly set up.
Great size cages with heating and radio on, fab size outdoor runs for them to get a play and exercise.
Rachel is just delightful and I knew my rabbits were getting the best care ever!
Thank you, I’m sure cookie and flossy are looking forward to coming back in August x K Garrett May 18

It's always good to find a place that you know your pets will come home happy from and Yarm Bunny Boarding is precisely that place. There was no sulky stamping and hiding after getting home ??! J Williams March 18

My bunnies have stayed here a few times now and I am beyond impressed with the care they receive from Rachel every time. I would not feel comfortable leaving them with anyone else. Rachel genuinely cares so much for all the animals she looks after . I often think they prefer Bunny boarding to being at home!! J Graham April 18

My piggies really enjoy their holidays at Yarm bunny boarding and I feel very happy leaving them here. Rachel is lovely and really cares about the animals. She has been really helpful when mine have needed medication during their stay and will accommodate any dietary needs. Teddi, my female Guinea pig is susceptible to bladder sensitivity and bloat which are controlled through diet. I would highly recommend boarding your Guinea pigs or rabbits here. J Bell April 18

Excellent!! our rabbits stayed for the weekend. We were nervous leaving them but Rachel really put us at ease and sent us pics of them enjoying themselves. They loved their holiday and will be going again! 5* * * * * A Brown Jan 18


Cheeky and Lily stayed with Rachel for 5 days and were looked after beautifully. Clean, tidy and homely and I was confident that they were in safe hands.

5 star***** W Shreeve Dec17


My two guinea pigs, Geraldine and Alice have stayed at YBB quite a few times over the last 2-3 years and they love staying with all of the other rabbits and guinea pigs, the pens are really big, but lovely and cosy too and I would thoroughly recommend Rachel to anyone looking for a really friendly and safe place to leave your little furry loved ones when you are on holiday! H Ashton - Dec17


I would like to say thank you on behalf of Bubble and Prince for another good stay at Christmas 2017. With the cabin been warm, clean, friendly and having a relaxed atmosphere at Yarm Bunny Boarding, the boy's looked well and relaxed when we came to pick them up. The boy's look forward again for their stay for Christmas 2018. Clare Dec17


"We have used YBB twice now having recently moved to the area and couldn't be happier with the care and attention Rachel gives her 'guests'. She takes each animal's individual needs into account and we can go away confident that our elderly bunny is in safe hands. Rachel is obviously passionate about the care she provides and takes her responsibilities seriously. We would have no hesitation in recommending YBB."

I can't thank you enough for the wonderful care you took of Ash (our Dwarf Lionhead Rabbit) whilst we were away.  Knowing that Ash was so well cared for each day allowed us to really relax and not worry about him while we were away on our holiday.  Just knowing he was in good hands gave us great peace of mind.  Good small animal carers are hard to find, so we feel grateful that we have found 'Auntie Rachel'.  Sue Oct 17


Marble really enjoyed his time at YBB. Upon arrival Rachel was very professional, friendly and reassuring. He had spacious high quality accommodation and clearly received plenty of love whilst I was away. I definitely will be coming back when I next go on holiday! I think Marble came back a little plumper! Not a bad thing for my little bun. Steph Aug 2017


 5 ***** Rachel - July 2017


 Great place highly recommended - 5***** Paul - July 2017


As always our Buns had a great week with Rachel at Yarm Bunny Boarding over Easter. Rachael takes such good care of them, we go away confident in the knowledge that they are safe and happy, but also loved and given affection and attention daily. Our Buns are large (two big french lops) and they are given plenty of space and exercise which is really important to us. Can't recommend this place more highly - Cathy 5* April 2017

Our 2 bunnies holidayed at Yarm bunny boarding with Rachael. She was warm and welcoming and obviously passionate about and committed to her work. I was convinced right away this was the best place for rainbow and flutter while we were on holiday. We received updates during their stay and they were happy and settled on our return. We would certainly use Yarm bunny boarding again and recommend to anyone who loves their bunnies and is going away. Your bunnies will have a great holiday- Helen 5*****March 2017 

Rachel is very friendly and really looks after all the animals as if they are her own. Would definitely use again and recommend 5*, Vicky Wanless Aug 2016

Very happy when I picked my rabbits Bernard and Arthur up today after 2 weeks in Rachel s care. They were happy & relaxed and had clearly been spoilt rotten. They will definitely be spending their future holidays at Yarm Bunny Boarding. Highly recommended. Thank you ?Suzanne Hamilton 5* Aug 2016

Andy Humphries 5* - We left our two Guinea Pigs there for a week in July. This is the first time we've had pets and had a family holiday so I was quite comprehensive about leaving them with someone else. But when we dropped them off we knew they would be in safe hands and well looked after (you can just tell Rachel loves animals). Yarm Bunny Boarding has a lovely set up and I even got a 'selfie' sent to my phone showing my pigs having a happy holiday themselves. I would highly recommend Yarm Bunny Boarding and will definitely be my first choice when we have another holiday (in fact we've already booked them in for June 2017 )!

We left our Netherland dwarf Barney with Rachel at YBB for 9 nights in July and were extremely happy with the how he was looked after. Rachel was very accommodating and obviously works very hard to make sure her guests are happy and settled. I will definitely use YBB again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others! S Cossavella 5* Aug 2016

My 2 pigs stayed with Rachel for a week, and I think they secretly wanted to stay for longer! The facilities are fantastic. Rachel clearly loves what she does. I received photos of my boys, and updates on how they were doing. I will happily send my boys back to stay with Rachel, and I think my boys enjoyed their holiday as much as I enjoyed mine! Thanks, Rachel

Just collected our Disabled Rabbit (3 legged Hop) from Rachel after a week away. He is that content at Yarm Bunny Boarding he didnt want to come home & even went to lengths of hiding in the back of the cage!! 
We have been using Yarm Bunny Boarding for a while & we wouldnt take him anywhere else now. If we couldnt get him in we wouldnt go away!! 
Rachel looks after them all very well & genuinely cares. Nik Groom 5* Aug 2016

Jill Cliff 5* - I boarded my bunny Louis here for a fortnight and got regular updates from Rachel who's one of the loveliest ladies I've met. Rachel has obvious affection for her little guests and completely put me at ease about leaving him. On collection I felt like Louis had had a little holiday too. Thanks Rachel so much, Louis will be back when we go away again and I will be recommending you to all my friends and family- Aug 2016

5* Sarah Plews - This is a really lovely place for bunnies and guinea pigs to go for their holidays. Rachel looked after Lola so well that she didn't want to come home! I was relaxed while we were away because I knew that Lola was being so well looked after in a spacious cage and outside runs. I will be coming back next time we go away! - Aug 2016

First timers this year at YBB and thrilled with the service Rachel provides. She is lovely, warm and friendly to deal with and you just know she will do her very best to look after your pet while you're away. We also received a photo of our guinea pigs to show they had settled in well which we really appreciated. Rachel does her best to meet the needs of each individual guest and definitely provides the tlc you would hope for. I would not hesitate to recommend YBB to everyone. Thanks Rachel, from Pumpkin and Nibbles x N Guyll 5 * - Aug 2016

5* - Rachel H - Dec 2015 - We choose yarm bunny boarding for our rabbit honey to stay for 17 days while we went back home over the Christmas period, before hand we were offered to look around and see where honey would be staying, we looked around and instantly knew the place would be perfect for honey, as she is a French lop she needs a lot of space we were pleased to see the hutches were very big and spacious which was perfect for her, also as she has plenty of exercise a day we were pleased to see ou...tdoor enclosed facilities for honey to have some exercise, Rachel herself was lovely and we knew she would be taken good care of, Rachel took time to get to know honey and find out what she likes and dislikes and went through everything with us, Rachel was very accommodating to all of honeys needs, honey has settled back home perfectly I think she had a very good break away at yarm bunny boarding and we will be using yarm bunny boarding in the future. 

Topsy and Tim had a lovely holiday at Yarm bunny boarding. Rachel took the time to ask about them and what they are used to so they got the best of care. I was impressed by the indoor hutches and the size of the outside runs which meant my bunnies got lots of exercise. I even got an email a few hours after I had dropped them off telling me they had settled in, so I had total peace of mind whilst away. Thank you.

I collected two very happy little guinea pigs on Monday. They thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas holiday with Rachel and I will be using her for future holidays. It's a lovely site, clean, lovely large hutches with outdoor space and runs. Rachel the owner is wonderful and while I was filling in the form at drop off she took my daughter round to see all her animals which she loved - Rachael Tate 5* - Xmas 2015

5* Ciara- Lola had a lovely time with you!! Thank you for making her stay personal and hassle free!!- Xmas 2015

Excellent facilities and professional service
Our two rabbits Toffee and Domino stayed here for 2 weeks recently and they are staying again tomorrow. The facilities are brilliant, loads of indoor and outdoor space and Rachel looks after them so well. You can tell that she really does care about the pets she has staying with her and makes sure she knows what they like/dislike etc. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Yarm Bunny Boarding. Natalie Dec 2015

FANTASTIC - Our three piggies spent 6 days at Yarm Bunny Boarding during the half term holidays and we couldn't have been happier with the service. Rachel was very friendly and allowed us to visit before we dropped off our pigs, and whilst we were away she kept us up-to-date on their welfare and even sent me a photo of them looking very pleased as they tucked into a huge breakfast! Our pigs stayed in a suitably sized cage in a shed in Rachel's garden which has lighting and heating and is kept at just the right temperature for pigs and bunnys. Rachel also let the pigs out for some time in her enclosed outdoor run whilst the weather was mild. I would definitely reccomend this company as Rachel has an obvious interest in the welfare of your pets, asking about their favourite foods and their general habits, and you can trust her to take good care of them. The Wilsons - Nov 2015

 Just wanted to say how impressed I was with your boarding service. I'm sure Boris & Ben were very happy. I will definitely be bringing them for their holidays next year - Sue Nov 15

Our rabbits, Bob & Gertrude, had a great time at Yarm Bunny Boarding, so much so they sulked when they came home! The pick up and drop off service is fantastic and you can tell Rachel really cares about animals. It was reassuring to go on holiday knowing they were in safe hands. Will definitely use Yarm Bunny Boarding again and would happily recommend to others. Thank you YBB - Helen 3/10/15


Fantastic service - Our bunny Rex has just got back from a weekend at Yarm Bunny Boarding and he seems to have enjoyed every second of his visit! YBB is a brilliant facility with a large heated hutch house and huge outdoor sheltered and open air runs. Fresh vegetables, hay and water are provided daily and the residents also get to spend a little time outside to exercise each day. Rachel, the owner was brilliant. We were reminded of what to bring before dropping Rex off and she kept us up to date over the weekend as to how Rex was getting on. Not only this Rachel was incredibly welcoming and made us and Rex feel right at home straight away, also at £5 per night, the service is incredibly affordable. We plan on using YBB again in the near future and would definitely recommend the service to anyone interested :)! Anna 1/10/15

 We were absolutely delighted with the love and care Barnaby and Chompy received during their stay at Yarm Bunny Boarding.  They have returned home very happy and well fed in my mind they were much smaller than that !!  They are more confident and have settled back into their life with us very quickly.  We will definitely send our piggies to stay at YBB next time we go away.  Thanks again Rachel,  from all the MacSweens - Sept 15

What a super place for your furries whilst on holiday. I boarded my two very furry bunnies and think they want to go back. Beautiful accommodation for them with a very wide selection of treats. Lovely friendly family too. I would highly recommend Yarm bunny boarding. 5* A Tompkins Aug 2015

Our guinea pigs Hermione and Ginny were very well looked after whilst we went on holiday. They're looking forward to us going away again, I think! I highly recommend Yarm Bunny Boarding, thanks Rachel. 5* J Humphries Aug 2015

5* Our lovely, cheeky guinea pigs spent a great week with Yarm Bunny Boarding. Couldn't recommend them enough, very accommodating especially as our piggies decided to fall out with each other just before they went. YBB found a solution and they were well looked after which made our holiday easier too! Many thanks for a great service - Amy Bainbridge Aug 2015 

5* My bunny has been to Yarm Bunny Boarding for one week. She was given fantastic care by Rachel Carr and her family. I received pictures and texts everyday, which was lovely. Her hutch was a great size and the runs are very spacious. I would highly recommend using Yarm Bunny Boarding and will definitely be using the service again. - Joanne Hamilton Aug 2015

Thanks for looking after our 2 guinea pigs emma and lucy. Rachel put our minds at rest knowing they would be well looked after whilst we were on holiday. Donna July 2015

Yarm Bunny Boarding has been a great find, excellent accommodation in beautiful surroundings with so much thought having gone into every detail.  Rachel is very welcoming and caring so giving you complete peace of mind.  Our rabbit Sybil will definitely be going back to stay.  Thank you. Francesca.    2.8.2015

5* We boarded our rabbit Hop for a long weekend. Rachel & her children were wonderful with him. He came home health & happy after a fun Holiday for him. Good facility's with big runs for him to play in. Also received updates & photos which we were grateful of as it was his first time boarding anywhere. I wouldn't hesitate to book again. - Sharon Irvine July 2015

Brilliant little holiday for my rabbit- Will definitely use again and highly recommend to anyone! 5* B Cameron June 2015

Guinea pigs were really well looked after. Very friendly service catering to individual needs and the pick up and delivery service made things so easy. Have already re-booked for another holiday for the piggies. From Petal  May 2015

"Rachel did a great job of looking after Archie - and she clearly has a knack with animals - she carried him easily and he won't let me or anyone else pick him up. It's a lovely setting to leave your pet, and it's obvious that this is a household that loves animals, and not just a business. "  From Sam (& Archie) on 

 "Very welcoming and friendly, couldn't think of anywhere better to give our GP's a holiday."  From Shirley on 

 My name is Roger and I am a 7 year old rabbit. I have to say my weeks holiday at Yarm Bunny Boarding was amazing. Rachel allowed me to play with my favourite towel as it hung from the washing line, which is my party trick and it also keeps me fit running round and round it. I was fed my favourite food and was told that I was being a very good boy by eating it all up. I am now back home and cannot wait to go back there. So mam and dad, when are you going on holiday again? ...Kay, May 2015

 "Fab place, our two bunnies have been a few times now and always return happy and contented. Rachel obviously loves animals and it shows in the way she cares for them but also the accommodation. Spacious hutches, indoor and outdoor exercise space, perfect for our v large and inquisitive boy. The pick up and drop off service is great too. We will return."From Cathy on 

 "Fudge had a wonderful Christmas and New Year At Yarm Bunny Boarding, as we were regularly updated With photos and And messages to his well-being, we had A fantastic relaxed holiday knowing he was Being well cared for."From Sweeting on 

 "Lovely home from home for our guinea pig. We had total piece of mind whilst we were away knowing he was being very well looked after. Wouldn't hesitate to leave him at Yarm Bunny Boarding again in the future. Thank you."From TheEvans on 

"Our rabbit Bella loved her stay at Yarm Bunny Boarding, it was like home from home. Set in lovely surroundings and the cage was a great size for her. The owner was very attentive and caring and we would definitely use here again. "From Emma on
