This is one of the best hedgehog houses we've come across. Part of the National Trust's Wicken Fen range, the well-built house has been tailor-made to provide an attractive, natural home and safe retreat for hedgehogs. With a large 460mm diameter family space it features:
- Durable, made using a sturdy, rust-proofed steel frame and fitted with a waterproof roof liner
- A predator defence tunnel
- An attractive natural brushwood finish
Choose a quiet position out of the prevailing wind in an area with some cover and pile leaves inside the box which will be used as nest material. Initial use may be encouraged by placing chopped peanuts / bacon rind in or near the house.
Simply check the house annually. Clean in April if necessary.
Size: L 49cm × W 40cm × D 20 cm. Weight: 1.10 kg.
Hedgehog Fact: Hedgehogs have about 5000 spines. Each spine lasts about a year then drops out and a replacement grows.
