This extra large indoor guinea pig hutch provides a spacious home for 2 or more guinea pigs to live comfortably, with plenty of room to run, play, dig and burrow. The RSPCA recommend a minimum of 120cm x 60cm for two pigs, with an extra 30cm length for each additional pig. The more space you can give your guinea pigs, the happier they will be, and you’ll know they’re happy when they “popcorn” which means they jump about and squeak like corn popping in a pan!
This hutch is available in two sizes:
- 150 x 60cm – suitable for 2-3 guinea pigs.
- 180 x 60cm – suitable for 3-4 guinea pigs.
The front panel is mounted with clear polycarbonate, similar to perspex, but much more robust, providing a pin-sharp view of your pets.
A fold-over mesh roof is available as a product option. A roof is advisable if you have small children, and essential where there are other pets such as cats or dogs in your household. Both the roof and the top frame lift off the base, making it easy to clean.
A small 250ml tin of pet-safe clear matte water-based wood sealer is included to seal the base floor of your pet home, making it resistant to urine and stains. We also sell a wood sealer paint brush if you need one.
We recommend our Bottle Fixings pack (see photo) for securely attaching a Water Bottle to the timber walls.
Please note that accessories are not included but can be added to your order separately.
The photo images are of the 180x60cm size with and without roof.

Wow! Just amazing! I can’t thank Kate & the team enough for our new cage – a complete transformation for us!
Our guinea pigs were initially in a two-storey wired hutch with removable flooring from Amazon… It didn’t take long to discover there were various inconveniences with this. It was incredibly difficult to clean. Hay & toilet-mess was kicked out of the wire mesh. And despite getting a relatively large hutch, it just didn’t offer enough space for our boys.
A Google-search later & I came across Hamster Homes. It wasn’t an easy decision having only just invested in a brand-new cage. I did consider buying a table from IKEA to put the cage on, but in the end went for the 180cm version with Perspex window & matching stand and have absolutely zero regrets.
Service & delivery were all communicated well. The cage is brilliant quality, incredibly easy to assemble (the base is already fully assembled). Slots onto the stand easily, held stable by raised rubber corners and allows for handy tub storage space underneath (actually saving floor-space). We now have a lovely clear & bright view of our boys… and they absolutely love the open space. Whilst the cage/stand combo does cost more, I couldn’t recommend it enough as the value has been absolutely worth it.
absolutely delighted with the cage, looks amazing and very well made so easy to put together with the very clear instructions, looks so much better than any cage i,ve seen in the shops and is just lovely, i can,t say enough good things about it, also excellent customer service keeping you informed, thankyou

So pleased with the new cage, which is very well made and provides plenty of space for our 3 guinea pigs. I wanted something that would fit in with our decor and be visually attractive and this is it.
Straightforward to assemble with clear instructions and being able to lift the top off the base means its easy to clean and maintain. Excellent customer service and communication from Kate – unfortunately one section of the base was damaged on delivery but on notification a new part was immediately dispatched and with us within a few days. Now just waiting to order the stand when they come back into stock to complete the set up. Thank you!

100% happy with the communication from Kate and with the actual cage itself! It’s the perfect size for our 2 boys as they have outgrown their previous one but now they will have plenty of space 🙂 – I am looking forward to seeing them settle in well with their new cage. Thank you so much xXx

An amazing enclosure for my syrian hamster giving him the space to display natural behaviours. Something that is often impossible in the modern small pet shop cages.
Excellent customer service, excellent build quality. Minimal self assembly required which I managed single handedly due to the clear and concise instructions. The item was also well packed and arrived in perfect condition.
A solid top quality enclosure that is well worth the money.

Fantastic new home for our guineas!
The customer service was fantastic, the cage and stand are both exactly what we wanted. Our girls love their new piggy palace and we couldn’t be happier with it!
Just wanted to feedback to say how amazing the hutch and stand is. Thank you it’s lovely!
Everyone who has seen it are impressed as are we and the call we had too was so nice.
It’s a brilliant product and our guinea pigs certainly love their new home.
Thank you again.

Our 3 guinea pigs seem very taken with their new home: there was much ‘popcorning’ going on and much racing around when they went into the Hamster Home cage for the first time. The cage is very well made with no sharp edges to catch inquisitive noses, and the sturdy cardboard packages has been repurposed to give protection for the base. The construction takes very little time as the instructions are blissfully straightforward. We also opted for the perspex front panel which seems sturdy. I am back to order a bedding box and hayrack. Thank you for informative and prompt service all round!
5 squeaks from the Livingston piggies and we have just placed an order for another one, going for the 180cm next. Simple, very well made enclosure that is perfect for guinea pigs and looks lovely in our living room which is a bonus for us. Straightforward to assemble and not long to wait between ordering and receiving the product. The stand is perfect and worth going for too.
This is the first cage we’ve bought and are very happy with it. Kate was very quick to respond to queries about what we needed and even delivered it to is. The guinea pigs are very happy in their new home!
This is the third cage I’ve bought from Kate and is a size upgrade on the previous ones. Absolutely great as always and the removable folding roof is really handy. The pigs seem very happy. Thanks
Really happy with large cage for our children’s first pets. Great good size for two guinea pigs and we also ordered the stand so it’s a nice height for interacting with and storing all their paraphernalia. Good quality product which will hopefully last for years (we put some pond liner down under fleece, with puppy pads in between, to protect the wood). Although it turned up without full instructions Kate was super prompt and helpful at rectifying this which shows all the benefits of ordering from an independent business and allowed us to get it built for Christmas (my 7 & 9 yds helped me build it). Will recommend to friends
HAMSTER HOMES REPLY: Thanks for the great review Tim, despite having forgotten to put the instructions in the box! Glad you got it sorted in time for Christmas.
Having spent weeks researching which cage to get my two guinea pigs, I couldn’t be happier that I decided to order from here. The 150cm cage is the perfect size, gives the guinea pigs loads of room to run around & they have been popcorning constantly since they moved in. Kate was great with speedy replies and lots of answers to (the many) questions I had. The cage was so easy to put together and I done it all myself within about 10 mins! Lovely quality & looks great in my living room 🙂 Thank you again, 2 very happy piggies x
