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 have been

Neutered or Spayed and Fully Vaccinated

Our BluebellsHoneysuckles & Blossoms Suites

Each suite is 6’ x 3’ with a balcony area to lounge under or chill out on. 

We have lots of tunnels, playsticks, stools and toys to keep our guests occupied. 

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.

Size Matters

We believe that all rabbits should have plenty of space to live comfortably and we support the RWAF 'A Hutch Is Not Enough' campaign. So it’s important to us that all our guests are happy during their stay here and have all the room they need to hop, play or just chill out if they want to. Our suites are light, warm and spacious and will accommodate all dwarf and ‘standard breeds’ of rabbits. 

Unfortunately, we can’t board giant/giant cross, ‘giganta’ or ‘larger than average’ breeds of bunnies due to the size of our suites and the litter trays/toys/tunnels that we have available.

If you have a ‘larger than average’ bunny please let us know their size/weight on the booking form and we’ll see if we can accommodate them. 

House Bunnies and Outdoor Rabbits

From September to April our lodge is fully heated to keep our house bunny guests as comfortable as they would be at home. During this period we are unable to board rabbits who normally live outdoors (or in an unheated outdoor building) as moving rabbits from a cooler environment to a warm one and back out into the cold is not recommended. 

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.

Keep In Touch With Your Pet

We have a unique 'Keep in touch with your pet' service, available via our Facebook page or by email/text if you don’t use social media.
