About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: Rabbits

Home from Home for House Bunnies!

We understand that finding suitable boarding for House Rabbits can be a concern, because if your rabbits are like ours, they will be used to all those luxurious home comforts!

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

All 3 of our suites are 3' x 6' and 'home from home' for your pampered bunnies, providing the space they need to chill-out and play, whatever the weather.

Visit our website to make a booking:


We offer an alternative to traditional hutched boarding. We can care for up to 5 bunnies (Which includes bonded pairs) at any one time. We only have 3 bunny suites and by running a small hotel, we can ensure that each guest gets plenty of attention.

The 3 suites available are the Honeysuckle Suite, the Bluebell Suite and the Blossom Suite. Each one is 6' x 3' and has a lounging balcony with a hay rack, beds and litter trays along with wooden plastics tunnel and a footstool to hop on.

By keeping the bunnies indoors they are away from the elements and predators, and can fulfill their need to hide, hop, explore and play in a safe environment.

For short overlap periods of up to 24 hours we can also offer the Vanilla Villa.

Each suite comes has its own balcony and hay rack, a straw filled bed (or vet bed - depending on litter habits) Litter tray with lush hay topped with Readigrass. We also provide tunnels and play-stick arches along with other toys to keep our guests entertained. All our suites, beds, toys etc are cleaned and disinfected/steam cleaned between guests).

During the winter months our lodge is heated to keep our house bunny guests cozy. We also provide guests with a 'Snugglesafe' and lots and lots of bedding to play and hide in.

We have CCTV so we can keep an eye on new arrivals - who may take time to settle in.

We're really sorry but we can can't board GIANT breeds of rabbits, as our suites were not built with this size of bunny in mind.

Don't forget to have look at our photos!


Your bunny will have so much to keep them occupied, by being able to hop about freely, have furniture to jump on or chill underneath of they will be happy and content during their holiday with us.

Health & Hygiene:


ALL rabbits must be vaccinated against Myxomatosis/VHD and new virus VHD2.

The new vaccine is called Filavac (or Erevac) and is stocked by most vets.

Vets4Pets at Altrincham Retail Park and Buchanan Vets in Timperley/Timperley Veterinary Centre have the vaccine in stock and are happy to vaccinate guests before they are due to stay with us.

ALL RABBITS MUST BE NEUTERED! - if they are old enough for this procedure. This is for the comfort of our other guests.

Bunnies prone to Pasteurella (Snuffles) can only be admitted if they are showing NO signs of sneezing, a runny nose or weepy eyes.

On checking out 'Bunny Suites are washed down/steam cleaned and disinfected with 'Anigene' a veterinary grade disinfectant.

Water bottles and bowls are sterilised in a steam steriliser.

To keep our guests comfortable, the lodge is heated from September to April and in the summer months we run a cooling fan.

Garden Lodge Bunny Retreat houses just a few rabbits at a time which means their guests get individual attention. Whiilst away we received regular updates via the Internet showing our bunny was happy which allowed us to enjoy our holiday worry free. We would throughly recommend anyone leave their rabbit in their safe hands. Many thanks to Amanda.

We left our 9 month old bunny with Amanda for 5 days whilst we went on holiday. I was very anxious about leaving him but I needn't have worried. I got regular updates and pictures of my happy bunny which put my mind at rest and I also got my first mothers day card too. I can't recommend you highly enough and we will definitely be back!! Thank you so much 🐇🐇🐰🐰 x

Best bunny boarding in the UK, and the best hostess! Amanda is brilliant- she helped us so much with any concern that we had during the process, and went beyond what we expected her to do. She made us feel completely at ease, both before and during the stay- we received constant updates and photos, and even got to Facetime with the bunny! The accommodation is as described. It really is wonderful. It is spacious and light, and Amanda makes sure to keep the bunnies warm with heaters and SnuggleSafe. I couldn't recommend The Garden Lodge Bunny Retreat and Amanda more! Five stars!

Fantastic....We have felt totally reassured leaving our fur baby with Amanda - we have used other provisions for holiday care and I can hand on heart say this is amazibg , totally geared up for rabbits needs...natural instincts and pampered. Amanda generally loves these creatures and has some much knowledge. We especially loved the photos of our baby's holiday checking she was fine from Amanda during our separation. Clean, well stimulated and luxury. Thankyou Amanda, def repeating booking.

From Debby on

From the moment I contacted Amanda, I knew that our rabbit would be in great hands. She asked lots of questions about Rocco and when we arrived, I couldn't believe how fabulous the facilities were. We received messages and photos of Rocco and Amanda really couldn't have done more to look after our pet. I would highly recommend the Garden Lodge Bunny Retreat and I'm sure Rocco is excited for her next visit!! Thanks Amanda

5 From Lucy on

Absolutely fantastic! Treated my bunny like one of the family from day one and really cared for him even during the night when he was poorly and not eating properly. Would give 10 stars if I could. Thank you! The facilities are excellent too - lovely bunny toys, blankets and fresh healthy food. Would not hesitate to board my bunny again at the Garden Lodge Bunny Retreat.

5 From Maria Stanion on

We originally came across Garden Lodge Bunny Retreat through a google search not even aware that bunny holiday accommodation existed. It was the best internet search ever. Amanda was super helpful, the accommodation and pampering such a high standard that I wouldn't mind staying and the pets can jet off on holiday. Whilst away we received updates on Lacroix who settled straight in from the warm reception on arrival. Bunnies are incredibly pampered and spoilt, safe and happy. Highly recommended.
