Cute, I have a giant mother hedgehog and 3 babies living quite happily under my decking, they are thriving, leave hedgehog food and clean water out each night for them, may treat them to this house and see if they move in
Seems to be a very small build. Adult hogs are typically 24-34cm. I have two hedgehogs visiting that are at least 26cm long. Anything less than 40cm offers no worthwhile protection so other than stopping any food you might leave out for them from getting wet this "house" is near useless and a waste of money.
For three to five pounds (price swings every 3-4 months) at Tesco you can buy an underbed style plastic box 60x50x17cm approx. Cut a opening out and you have a simple, safe, dry and roomy feeding station and with a little more DIY you can easily turn it into a nesting box. It wont look as pretty, but it will do a much better job and have the advantage of allowing you to watch them feed (they don't care if you are a peeping tom).
Having said all that for what it is the price is good.
Endangered species, so look after ‘em! Don’t forget they need some way to enter your garden and be careful of using poisons that they might eat!

We set on up a couple of weeks ago and stuck an old ir CCTV cam watching it. After 3 nights the first one came and within a week we had 4 different ones all coming, sometimes 2 in the box at a time. We were told to use kitten biscuits and they love it.
The kids love it and fight over who fills up the hedgehog food for the next day.
Made it with a plastic crate as per the link but added an extra barrier with offset hole more like the wooden ones in the same link. After they got used to it I replaced the opaque lid with a clear one and can film them eating now too.

It's also not really suitable for a hedgehog house as there is no floor to it. Could be useful for feeding hedgehogs though.

Lemme know when you see such an offer and i'll go about about setting one up in the garden. Cheers(y)
You’ve more chance of having Lord Lucan knocking on your door asking for a cup of sugar than you have of a hedgehog using this.

Possible, I built one for my hogs in the garden... never used it

We have a wooden hedgehog house with a floor and a little room to go in which the hedgehogs do use for a snooze. That cheap one does look very good for a feeding station though as it would keep it dry and possibly protect it from other animals eating it, I would get one for that reason but unfortunately no Works near us
I bought it to use as a feeding station, in the review on the website it was being used as that, I added a few bits to the order to make it up to £20 for free delivery as no local Works and also got 17% TCB

Just about big enough for adult rats,s..... Not so cute now eh?

Seriously though - limited practical use for hedgehogs

That's how I built my first one because I knew the foxes in my area would do what ever they could to get to the food. Unfortunately they broke the opening, got past the offset opening and stole the food. I then re-enforced the opening with some wood and screws and they have not been able to get in since. I prefer the plastic crate to wood as it makes it much easier to clean after the dirty adorable sods.

Now that one of the neighbours have a rabbit, they’ve blocked all access and potential tunnel routes to keep the rabbit from escaping. Not sure if the hedgehogs are able to come over anymore. I remember one summer a young hedgehog was wandering around us during the day for water it was that thirsty

Yeah, they definitely see it as a feeding station and toilet. Plastic is the best option
Anything that encourages people to think about Hedgehogs must be a good thing, even if not an ideal home. See them so rarely now..
Our neighbour had one but found it encouraged rats..
We built a mini log cabin for hedgehogs, we use a under bed clear storage box with an opening cut out as a feeding station. The rat uses the hedgehog box as his dogs, the hedgehogs love the feeding station, we had to buy another as have two visiting - one has now moved in under the shed. Cat biscuits and sliced banana are his/her fave - do not feed them mealworms - they will wolf them down but can cause deficiencies leaving them unable to walk
A house for wooden hedgehogs?? 🤪

Did it give the rats a pep talk?
Yeah it gave the food and shelter so they could become big and strong 😞

for 7.50 a hedhehog house is a great deal even if you dont own a hedghehog tbh

so far, i've not had any rats. There was a mouse a few days ago but that's the only other visitor. I guess they will find it eventually though.
