Riverside Golden Brown Hedgehog House Starter Kit, Hedgehog Houses

We are very excited about this new updated design of our popular Hedgehog House, so we've added lots of other items to make this popular starter kit for anyone wanting to encourage hedgehogs into their garden. You'll save over £12 on the total individual cost when buying the starter kit.

This newer model Hedgehog House offers an improved roof design with a better entrance for the Hedgehog, and much bigger internal dimensions. It still comes with the weatherproof lockable lid, which looks like solid granite but is made from composite board. This makes it fully waterproof, and we have added grooves under the lid to stop any water running inside, helping the Hedgehogs stay dry.

Overall, an excellent quality and affordable hedgehog house, and probably our best seller.

  • One excellent quality Riverside Gold Hedgehog House
  • 2.5kg bag of Riverside Woodcraft premium hedgehog food
  • Hedgehog feeding guide
  • 1 x Heavy ceramic  bowl suitable for water or food
  • 1 x  Tough plastic bowl suitable for water or food
  • 1kg bag of Riverside Woodcraft hedgehog nesting material

Hi guys,

How would I discourage any mice taking residence in the new hedgehog house?
( Mark Waller )


Thank you for your question, due the the nature of the product it would almost be impossible to stop mice getting inside the hedgehog house due the size differences between the two, but please rest assure that a mouse or mice would not bother a hedgehog or harm one in that matter. 

So im afraid i cant really give a logical answer to your question.

Thanks Chris :)

Really pleased with box. I’m hoping our nightly visitor will move in for winter hibernation - will I therefore need to provide any ventilation holes. If so, where / what would you advise? Thank you for your help. ( Gill )
The lid has a gap when closed which will give plenty of ventilation ( Ricky )
In a hedgehog hibernation box do you leave any food out and if so where? Inside the box or not and where inside the box? I am looking at the new hedgehog box
Many thanks
( Jackie Ayre )
You dont really want to encourage a nesting box to become a feeding area as the hedgehog is less likely to use it to sleep in if it has food in it, best to put food out near by or use a hedgehog feeding station first and then add a nesting box later once you have an interest
