We are a small rabbit boarding facility who offer an alternative to traditional hutched boarding.

Guests can enjoy one of our three fully furnished 6ft x 3ft bunny suites, where they can fulfil their need to hop, jump, explore and play in a home from home environment.

Having house bunnies ourselves we know how our pampered pets get used to the comforts of ‘indoor living’ 

So when it comes to their holidays, they want the same luxuries they are used to at home.

The Garden Lodge Bunny Retreat is in Altrincham, Cheshire, WA14.

Conveniently located 8 miles from Manchester Airport and 8.5 miles from Manchester City Centre.

Just off the A56 - not far from Altrincham Retail Park.

All rabbits boarding with us must be fully vaccinated!

To qualify as 'fully vaccinated'

your rabbit should have had 2 separate injections.

1 injection with Nobivac for Myxomatosis/VHD1 and a 

2nd injection with Filavac (or Eravac) for the new rabbit virus RHD2.

First time or overdue vaccinations need to have been given 21 days before your pets arrival date so they can build up their full immunity and are out of the incubation periods for each virus.

We only board neutered male and spayed female rabbits. This is for the comfort of all our guests.

Any health issues your pet has need to be discussed with us - before making a booking.

BluebellsHoneysuckles & Blossoms Suites

We only have 3 suites so we do fill up quickly. 

By only looking after a few pets at any one time, we guarantee your pets will get lots of attention.

House Bunnies and Outdoor Rabbits

From September to April our lodge is heated to keep our house bunny guests as comfortable as they would be at home. If your rabbit lives outdoors (or in an outdoor building) during the winter, please let us know and we can discuss what will be most suitable for them.

Outdoor Time

We have a large paved area where we can set up our play pen so guests can get out and stretch their legs (depending on the weather of course!) - whilst we watch over them with a cup of tea.


Rates Include:

An Evening Meal, Bed, Breakfast, a selection of Greens and oodles of Hay

... and of course - cuddles are free!
