About Us

Who Are We?

Hamster Homes AvatarHamster Homes UK  is a small independent business, based in Scotland, that hand-make beautifully crafted, animal friendly homes for small pets – from hamsters, mice, gerbils and guinea pigs, to more exotic pets, such as pygmy hedgehogs.

Hamster Homes was born in 2015 after we struggled to find a suitable home for our dwarf hamsters.  Hamsters and other small pets need a surprising amount of space to roam, climb, and dig as they would do in the wild, and most cages on the market are far too small.   We wanted a home that conformed to animal welfare standards, made using natural materials, with easy access to our pets, and simple to clean.  So we decided to make one ourselves…

Since then, our range of Pet Homes and accessories has continued to evolve, and with business growing, Hamster Homes became part of a Private Limited Company, known as Nutty Nature Ltd in April 2017.

 

Our Design Principles…

Our design principles are based on using natural materials to make spacious, high quality homes that create a fun and stimulating habitat for your pets, whilst promoting animal welfare standards.  To read more about our Design Concept, click here.

Our Workshop Facilities…

In February 2017, we moved our workshop facilities to an old farmhouse in the beautiful Stirlingshire countryside, using the large barn extension as our workshop.  The farmhouse is surrounded by fields with amazing views to the Campsie Fells and Ochil mountain range, and Loch Lomond is just a stone’s throw away.  Wildlife is found in abundance with herons, frogs, rabbits, stoats, field mice and deer often wandering through the garden, making it a magical and inspiring place to work.
