The 6ft Rabbit Hutch
The 6ft Rabbit Hutch is our largest rabbit hutch. If you are rehoming a rabbit from a charity or RSPCA then this is the hutch to go for.
With internal dimensions of over 6ft by 2ft by 2ft, this hutch is made according to the RWAF’s, RSPCA’s and most Rabbit Adoption Charities size guidelines.
The build quality is top-notch and far superior in many ways to the other 6ft hutch hutches being sold online.
We've used all tongue and groove construction - including the back panels to make this a much sturdier design when comparing competitors hutches that use a cheaper plywood design to cut costs.
The wooden framework used in this large single story rabbit hutch is thicker than other 6ft hutches being sold in this price range.
Two of the four large doors are designed with our custom made 1.8mm thick wire which provides a sturdy barrier and a place to secure a water bottle and allow in some air and light.
Both doors come with 2 x green canvas flaps that you can conveniently roll down during bouts of bad weather or at night.
Inside, the entire floor is covered with a thin black plastic lining which will make it much easier to clean than a hutch that doesn't have this handy feature.
The hutch is slightly raised above the ground to help keep the damp and cold away. Each of the 6 supporting legs is capped with a sturdy rot-proof black 'foot' so you can put your hutch on any surface.
The feet are also adjustable too, by up to 2cm, so you can balance the hutch if the ground is not even.
Most importantly there is plenty of space with plenty of height inside for your rabbits to fully stand up. There is also a separate ‘quiet area’ then they can quickly retreat to if they want.

Where can we deliver to?
Orders can be delivered anywhere in mainland England, Wales and most areas in the lowlands of Scotland. If you live outside these areas we then, unfortunately, cannot deliver our products to you. This includes the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland (IM , GY, JE, BT)
Like most online companies we rely on (3rd party) courier companies to deliver all our orders around the country. As much as we would love to get our products in the hands of as many people as possible the cost of getting our hutches to anyone who lives outside mainland England and Wales is prohibitive - sometimes more than the actual cost of the product!
Delivery to Scotland
We can deliver to most lowland areas in Scotland. These include the following postcodes: DD , DG , EH , FK1-15 , G , KA1-26 , KA29-30 , KY , ML , PA1-19 , PH1-9 , TD
If you live outside these areas then unfortunately, we are unable to offer delivery due to the high extra charges levied by the courier companies we use. You are welcome to arrange your own courier to collect from us, or we can deliver the items to a courier up north for onward journey to you.
Delivery to the Isle of Wight
The courier company that we use can deliver to the Isle of Wight. However, there is a delivery surcharge of £15.95 per order.
1. Is there a Cover for the 6ft Rabbit Hutch?
Yes, they are currently in production and we are hoping to launch them at the end of the year. Below is what they will look like. Tight-fitting, thick material that goes all the way around and with access to all 4 doors.
2. Is there a Run for the 6ft Rabbit Hutch?
At this moment we don't have a run for the 6ft hutch but it is something that is next on our 'to-do' list. Watch this space!
3. Is the 6ft Rabbit Hutch big enough for two rabbits?
Yes, at over 6ft by 2ft by 2ft this hutch has been specifically designed for people who plan to adopt their rabbits and give them as much space as possible.
4. Is the 6ft Rabbit Hutch fox proof?
We would like to think that our 6ft Rabbit Hutch is made to a higher standard than most other suppliers in its price range. While we have purposely used thicker, sturdier wood, wire and locks with the aim to make it as safe and secure as possible for your pets we cannot absolutely guarantee that foxes and other predators won’t try and target them.
Foxes are by far the biggest threat that your pet will face so if you are going to keep your rabbits or guinea pigs outside then we also urge you to take these added precautions especially if you know you have foxes in your area.
5. Is the wood treated?
Yes, the 6ft Rabbit Hutch comes with a base coat treatment of wood preservative. But as with all outdoor wooden structures in our harsh climate, we recommend that the timber is treated on a regular basis to ensure a long life. There are many popular products available with Cuprinol , Ronseal and Wilkinson amongst the better-known brands. A lot of customers use and recommend these:
Moving Your 6ft Hutch
This is a big hutch which can be moved if needed. However, due to weight and size, this should only be undertaken by two people. We do not recommend that you push or pull the hutch if you want to move it to a new location. Doing so can result in you damaging the hutch or weakening the structure. Always carefully lift the hutch first when moving it to another location.
Caring For Your Hutch
As with most outdoor products the lifespan of your hutch can be dramatically prolonged just by taking a few simple steps. Click here for our product care guidelines.
Positioning Your Hutch
If you plan on keeping your hutch outside then we highly recommend that you position it in a protected area which is not overly exposed to the elements and protected at all times from high winds (or sudden gusts).
The Wood We Use
The majority of the wood we use in this product is a highly durable, kiln-dried white pine which is noted for its resistance to decay and rot. Most rabbit hutches made in the U.K use this type of wood. But unlike many other manufacturers, we use more of it.
You'll find that the framework is thicker and the majority of the hutch uses solid tongue and groove construction (and less cheap plywood). This is why our hutches tend to be sturdier, heavier and last longer than many of the cheaper options out there.
We would like to think that our 6ft RWAF Sized Hutch is made to a higher standard than most other suppliers in its price range. While we have purposely used thicker, sturdier wood, wire and locks with the aim to make it as safe and secure as possible for your pets we cannot absolutely guarantee that foxes and other animals (dogs, badgers, stoats, cats) won’t try and target them.
Foxes are by far the biggest threat that your pet will face so if you are going to keep your rabbits or guinea pigs outside then we also urge you to take these added precautions especially if you know you have foxes in your area. (This advice also applies to other animals that may pose a threat.)

Unfortunately, there is always the possibility that some rabbits and other rodents may chew parts of their hutch. This is out of our control and the onus really is on you to take the necessary precautions straight away to prevent or lessen the chance of them chewing parts of their hutch.
Our wooden hutches, like the majority of wooden hutch sold in the U.K, are not chew proof and we can't be held liable for any damage caused to or by your pet chewing or gnawing the product. Prolonged chewing can also weaken your hutch and decrease the protection they offer against foxes.
We recommend trying out our new Anti Chew Strips and taking a close look at all the steps you can take to stop or at least lessen the chances of your rabbit chewing things they shouldn't.
