The wicker Hedgehog House offers hedgehogs and other mammals a safe retreat from the many hazards of modern life such as garden strimmers, forks and tools, pets and other predators such as badgers and foxes.
This habitat is much safer than the compost heap or bonfire where hedgehogs are in danger from garden tools or of being burnt.

Please note: our NEW STOCK DOES NOT have the green moss trim. As the product is made from natural materials the appearance may vary due to seasonal availability and environmental factors.
Space for the whole family

Where should I place my Hedgehog House?
Locate the Hedgehog house within cover, out of the prevailing wind. Pile leaves or foliage around the house to further camouflage it. Place cut short lengths of dry grass or leaves inside as nesting material.
If boisterous dogs or badgers are in the area the house and may be anchored down for extra security with tent pegs or similar.
