About Us

We offer an alternative to traditional hutched boarding, providing our 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 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.


Our rabbit boarding facility is fully equipped, spacious and comfortable.  We provide everything your bunny needs for their holiday here with us.

We welcome viewings as we understand owners can be anxious when leaving their beloved pets when they jet off on holiday, especially for the first time.

Please contact us to book a viewing and have a look around. We are always happy to show you where your bunnies will stay and how they will spend their time here.
