About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: Rabbits

Based in Altrincham, conveniently located 8 miles from Manchester Airport and 8.5 miles from the centre of Manchester.
We are Just off the A56 - not far from Altrincham Retail Park.

We are a small family run business who offer an alternative to traditional hutched boarding

Visit our website to make a booking:


We have 3 luxury bunny suites and by running a small hotel, we can ensure that each guest gets plenty of attention.

Each suite has non-slip flooring, a lounging balcony, litter trays and toys.

Our lodge is fully heated from September -April. There's plenty of natural light and each suite is very spacious - so our guests can fulfill their need to hide, hop, explore and play in a safe environment.

All our suites, beds, toys etc are cleaned and disinfected/steam cleaned between guests).

During the winter months our lodge is fully heated to keep our house bunny guests as warm as they would be at home. We can also provide guests with a 'Snugglesafe'.

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, large cross breeds of rabbits as our suites were not built with 'larger' sizes of bunnies in mind.

Don't forget to have look at our photos!


Each suite is large enough for guests to hop and play freely. Outdoor time is available if required.

Health & Hygiene:

ALL rabbits MUST be vaccinated against Myxomatosis/VHD and new virus RHD2.

ALL rabbits must be spayed/neutered.

ALL medical conditions must be discussed with us before staying.

We provide fresh, clean litter boxes loaded with hay every day!

I am so glad I have found Amanda and her bunny hotel. She looked after my 2 girls for over 3 weeks and they were so well looked after. She kept in touch with videos and photos of them which was so reassuring. She even administered Rozi anti biotics and took her for her check up to the vet. From the minute I spoke to her I knew she had vast knowledge about rabbits and they would be in good hands. I am so glad I've found her but worried she will get busy as word gets around how good she is. 5 stars all round from me and the girls and a big thank you.

It's a 5 star hotel for rabbits 🥰...

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.
