Double Rabbit Hutch
The Double Rabbit Hutch offers just over 12 square feet of space over two separate levels which are connected by a long ramp and trapdoor.
It is the ideal solution if you want to separate your animals from time to time or alternatively, it can be simply used as a large two-level hutch.
Both main doors come with heavy-duty wire mesh built into the frame for extra durability. All doors, including those on the sleeping compartments, open fully for easy cleaning of the interior.
When it comes to cleaning, maintenance and caring for your pets, the Double Hutch features a liftable roof for easy access.
The lined green felt roof has two metal stays so it can be held safely in place while you attend to your animals.
Because this is a raised hutch, your rabbits will benefit from a warmer, more comfortable and drier enclosure. Rubber feet mean that the legs are protected from ground moisture and help prevent wood rot.
Our custom made heavy-duty barrel locks are included on all the doors of the Double Rabbit Hutch. This hutch comes with all the same great features customers have come to expect from rabbit-hutches.co.uk.
The Double hutch also has the option of a custom-designed add-on run. You can choose to order the hutch and the run at the same time or you can add the Double Run at a later stage if you decide you want to.
The Double is a versatile and very easy to clean hutch with multiple access points along with the option to add a run. All in all, a superb home for your pets and at a very fair price!
Large living space - Internal dimensions of 102.5 x 55cm give just over 6 square feet of living space on each level of the Double Hutch.
Easy to maintain - As with all our products, the Double Hutch has been designed so as to offer easy accessibility for cleaning and maintenance. This includes 4 large outward opening doors and a hinged roof that can be easily lifted and supported by a metal stay for safety.
The doors are lockable with secure, heavy-duty locks - a feature many similar designs just don't offer.
Ideal for external environments - The Double Hutch has been constructed using kiln-dried wood, has an excellent smooth finish and has been pre-treated with an animal-friendly wood preservative. All this helps protect your hutch against the elements.
Raised floor -The raised floor on the Double Hutch offers added protection against damp from below, as well as providing a warmer environment for your animals. As a result, the Double Hutch is ideal for gardens and all-natural surfaces. Rubber leg protectors have been added for further protection against water damage.

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 Run for the Double?
2. Is the Double Hutch big enough for two rabbits?
A lot will depend on the breed of rabbit, how you intend to keep your rabbits and how much time they will get to interact outside the hutch.There is a huge difference in the amount of space a British Giant needs when you compare it to a Netherland Dwarf.
You know your set up best, which breed you intend to keep and how you intend to keep them.You can get all the measurements from our product pages so you can make an informed decision before you purchase. For more information click here
3. Is the Double Hutch fox proof?
We would like to think that our Double 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.
4. Is the wood treated?
Yes, the Double 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:
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.

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.
