About Us

We offer an alternative to traditional hutched boarding, providing guests with a luxury  3ft x 6ft fully furnished 'bunny suite', so they can fulfill their need to hide, hop, explore and play in a safe environment.

We understand that finding suitable rabbit boarding for house rabbits (and rabbits that are used to having lots of room to play) can be a concern.

We wanted to be different and offer large, indoor 'bunny suites' - so that all our guests could have the space they needed to stretch out and play, whatever the weather.

Garden Lodge Bunny Retreat is located in Altrincham, Cheshire.
8 Miles from Manchester Airport and just off the A56 Manchester Road.
Not far from Altrincham Retail Park.


When booking holidays, we struggled to find suitable care for our  'pampered' house bunnies, who were used to having lots of room to play and had never even seen a hutch.

We eventually found a lovely bunny hotel, which was unique in the way that they cared for their guests. They had such a fun time staying there, that we decided to bring some luxury bunny care, to our local area.




When making your booking please check your vaccination certificate to make sure your rabbits vaccinations will be up to date during their holiday dates.

From 1st January 2017 rabbits will need to have two separate vaccinations:

Myxomatosis/VHD  (Nobivac)

RVHD2 (Filavac) The new virus

These vaccinations need to be give at least 2 weeks apart.

Both vaccinations are given annually


Rabbits being vaccinated for the first time (or who are overdue) need to be immunised 21 days before checking in. This is for the vaccines to become fully effective and for your pet to recover from any possible side effects and to recover from the trip to the vets, whilst they are at home.

The most up to date information is here:

Vets 4 Pets based at Altrincham Retail Park are more than happy to vaccinate bunnies who are due to stay with us.

Please ring the Reception Team on   0161 927 9318    to book an appointment.




We can now offer a collect and return home service, so you can concentrate on getting away your holiday.

Prices start at £7.50 per trip.

If you don't have a pet carrier that's OK - as we can bring one along with us.

We can only offer this service within a five mile radius from Altrincham.
