About Us

The Garden Lodge is located in Altrincham Cheshire.  8 miles from Manchester Airport and just off the A56 Manchester Road.

We can provide luxury, over-night or holiday care for your bunny.

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.

That's why we offer indoor,  spacious 'bunny suites' - so that your rabbits can have space to stretch out and play, whatever the weather.

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

Prior to a holiday abroad we struggled to find suitable holiday care for our two 'spoilt' house bunnies.  We eventually found a lovely bunny hotel, which was unique in the way they cared for their guests. They had such a fun time staying at the bunny hotel, that we decided to bring some bunny luxury to our local area.




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

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

Myxomatosis/VHD  (Nobivac) once a year

RVHD2 (Filovac) every 6 months

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


You can find out more about RVHD1 and RVHD2 by clicking here:

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

Guinea Pigs do not need to be vaccinated.

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.

We can photograph your bunny or guinea pigs when they stay with us.
