RSPB > Wildlife > Hedgehogs

    Our great-looking home is a safe retreat for hedgehogs. With its gently-sloping roof and distinctive hedgehog silhouette design carved on the front, it's definitely a ''des-res'' for our spiky friends! It's safe too - the internal entrance is concealed, to help protect them from predators. Although it's cosy for the long winter, there are ventilation holes to aid air flow. The secure roof can be opened for inspection and cleaning.

    View what's happening in your hedgehog home with a wildlife camera. This hedgehog home comes with a pre drilled hole to enable easy camera instalation.

    The box may be used as a nest site from spring until June/July, and as shelter from poor weather and predators until their winter hibernation. They will typically hibernate between November and March dependent on the weather.

      The hedgehog loves it!
      We bought this one last summer after we found a hedgehog having built a nest and having urchins in an old flower pot in our garden.
      She hibernated in it (we had given her plenty of hay) - there was a lovely hedgehog shaped nest inside, when I cleaned it earlier this month, and now she has started dragging leaves and hay into it again, so I expect another litter is on its way.

      Excellent quality product
      I have been looking for a good quality, safe, dry and comfortable home for our visiting hedgehogs, and decided this was the best product that I had found. Although I hadn't seen them for a couple of weeks and wondered if they had already found their winter homes, I ordered it anyway. It arrived less than 48 hours after placing my order. I placed it in the garden and filled it with some straw. I ordered the hedgehog home as part of a set with the food bowl and buggy crunch food so placed that just outside with a bowl of clean water. I was delighted to find the following morning that the food had all gone and there was a little trail of straw outside the box, I've not seen the hedgehog but clearly they have found and approved of their new habitat and I'm hoping they decide to make it their home.

      RSPB response: Thank you for this lovely review - it's great that your hedgehogs have a safe and sturdy home to stay in during the winter months.

      Lovely home - Hedgehog House
      Purchased this as we have had two hedgehogs in the garden and I wanted to make sure he got some food. I put some food in the house and, sure enough, he found it.

      This is a lovely house and it only took him a few hours until he used it. I am hoping he will decide to move in although we do have other wildlife in the garden so he may decide to go elsewhere.

      However, this is a lovely box and it is easy to refill his food.

      Very happy with purchase. Although quite expensive. I love it - and so does the hedgehog!

      Hog takes up residence
      I purchased this because we had been getting a visit from spiky and he seemed to be looking for somwhere to live. A few times we found him going into our shed at night. The first two nights after purchase he still went into the shed. On nights 3 & 4 I found he had spent some time in the hog home and this morning on day 5 there he was fast asleep in his new home. I hope he enjoys it through the winter. It is well made and strong.

      well made with enough room.
      I purchased one of these box's for use by a hedgehog that will possibly spend most of it's life in semi captivity. The box is well made with lots of room in the main compartment. The roof can be released and allows easy access for cleaning. The walls are thick which allows protection and a box which will last. Well worth the cost if you want a nice looking box that can be used as housing or just a feeding station.
