So easy to use!
9 June 2022
I am so pleased I took the plunge and went for this hutch/run combo. It ticks all the boxes for us - coco and haze have the freedom to run in and out all day without me having to worry about them.. we just open the hatch in the morning and shut it last thing at night. The hutch is so easy to clean with the removable tray. The free sun shade is great as it not only protects from sun but also from the rain so I find the girls in the run grazing even when it’s raining. I love that it’s on the floor so I can relax when my boys want to stroke and play with their Guinea pigs and I don’t have to worry about them falling out of their hutch. Cage is easy to manoeuvre onto fresh grass. I just use a dustpan and brush to sweep up the droppings on the grass. A stress free hutch and animal life for us! 2

Brought as we have an exposed garden and wanted a home that would last multiple pets. The cage is a bit of a fiddle to build but secure. I wish the double clips were available to buy more of. Easy to clean. The main door can be a bit difficult to open and shut when on longer grass but can't work out why 2

Hutch and run are fantastic

I have had this hutch and run for a few weeks and I am very glad I did. The first night it was in the garden I woke to see a fox standing on it! Security is important and this does not disappoint.
The only disappointment is the water bottle, I have had 2 and the both drip constantly depositing the complete contents in to the hutch over about 8 hours! Which given the overall cost of the package is poor. I have bought a different design and the problem is solved. 2
Omlet Says: Hi Andrew,
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review.
We are sorry to read that you experienced some trouble with two of our water bottles. They should indeed not leak. You could try the following : fill the bottle, turn it upside down and shake it. Some water will come out, but inside the bottle a vacuum will form. Important: the bottle should be then kept upside down and put it in the hay rack. Normally, it should not leak anymore. However, if after trying this, your bottles are still leaking, there might be another issue. If that is the case, please come back in touch with us by phone or by email, so that we can understand the source of this problem and find a solution for you.

Extremely well made

Only improvement would be to add some form of handle on the hutch to make it easier to move to fresh grass 2

We are very happy with our Eglu hutch for our two guinea pigs. They took to it immediately and we haven't looked back. It's easy to clean and just feel much more solid and weather-proof than wooden hutches. The boys love it! 2

This is my second eglu 1 metre run for my guinea pigs. I think they are great. I can see the guinea pigs really well and they can see me so they have become confident and very tame coming to the door when I appear.Cleaning out is so easy as is moving the run and no maintenance of cause.Also it looks attractive in the garden rather than a wooden run which deteriorates in the weather after a while and look tatty. the indoor accommodation has plenty of room and is warm and cosy in the winter so enabling the guineas to remain in the eglu all year round 2

Excellent but needs a few helpful tweaks

Happy with this hutch and the run, it’s a great idea and well designed, brilliant for keeping clean and the guinea pigs seem happy running around in it. Few things though for future design consideration: would be so handy having a top access through the cage run just to be able to get access inside, otherwise it’s down on the knees and trying to stretch in and reaching through, would imagine this wouldn’t be possible for everybody. I also personally think the hutch itself could do with being a tad longer, I struggle for space to put their snuggly beds what with them also needing access to the water bottle and hay rack, it’s a bit of a squeeze in there! The weather cover is excellent and a total necessity to keep them protected from the elements. I debated about buying this product for about 2 years due to the price and although I still think it is overpriced there is no denying that it is good quality and sturdy and if looked after will stand the test of time, so overall I, and my piggies, are pretty happy. 2

I chose the Eglu hutch for our 2 baby Guinea pigs as I wanted a fox proof hutch.
We’ve had the hutch over a month now and we’re very pleased with it. So easy to keep clean and easy to move around with 2 people carrying it. I was apprehensive about the cost but it will last for years and I love the fact that the guineas are able to move in and out of the run in the day and are safely locked up at night. The cover has been fantastic in the rain as it means they can still be outside eating grass. The 1 metre run is fine for 2 Guineas. It was a real pain to put together though!!
It was missing a pack of screws when it arrived, however the customer service team were great and sent another pack. 2
