Delivery options
  • Standard £5.95

This hedgehog house is designed to give those little visitors in your garden a warm, safe and dry environment in which to nest. This house is made from hand thrown terracotta which makes it very durable and will protect the hedgehogs from crushing and strimming.

The best place to site your hedgehog house is in a quiet position out of prevailing winds and in an area with some cover. Pile leaves and short grass around the house with a few handfuls of short dry grass and leaves placed inside to initiate a nest. Hopefully local hedgehogs will move in soon.

Each house is fired to 1080°C to make it as frost resistant as possible. However we would always suggest that, just to be extra safe, in the very cold months that you move it into a sheltered spot.

To keep the house in tip-top condition please read our ‘Assembly and care instructions’ PDF for more detailed advice.

Every one is hand thrown so each will be slightly different in thickness and shape which gives them their unique character.

Please note: any white specks in the terracotta are lime granules, which occur naturally in raw Turkish clay. Occasionally when a pot is fired, the clay around them can split out a little, but this does not compromise the strength of the pot in any way. The presence of lime helps to bind the clay and ultimately makes for a stronger pot.
