Introducing NestGuest - the ultimate hedgehog house made from 100% recycled plastic waste!

Let your prickly friends sleep, shelter and hibernate in comfort and safety with our eco-friendly hedgehog house. Crafted with love and care, to dimensions recommended by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, NestGuest is not only a cosy shelter but also a sustainable choice for environmentally conscious lovers of wildlife.

Incorporating a NestGuest hedgehog house into your garden or land is a positive step. But outside the house itself it’s critical you create an environment that can sustain your hedgehogs; a wildlife-friendly area in your garden will encourage their food source. You can also make it easier for them to move around their territory. More tips below.

Hidden away in your garden and for many years to come, the NestGuest hedgehog house will provide a welcoming and sustainable retreat for the nation’s favourite mammal.

Designed to provide a snug retreat for hedgehogs, NestGuest features a safe and predator-proof entrance and well-ventilated sleeping area. Its durable construction ensures long-lasting use, while the use of recycled plastic waste showcases our commitment to reducing environmental impact.

NestGuest is made in Cornwall, England from recycled plastic waste with two moulded parts in a process called rotomoulding. It’s a low-waste manufacturing process that is perfect for production of hollow items like the NestGuest.

The two moulded sections simply fit snuggly one on top of the other – so there are no hinges, bolts or screws to rust, nor timber to rot. And the integrated design means there’s no fiddly external tunnel to attach. The top section creates eaves over the bottom so that rainwater runs off easily, keeping the inside nice and dry.

Key features:

  • Safe and secure entrance to deter predators.
  • Cosy sleeping area for daytime napping or the long winter sleep.
  • Ventilation slots to allow fresh air circulation - new design for even more ventilation.
  • New design includes moulded feet to raise the NestGuest off the ground.
  • Durable construction - guaranteed for 25 years.
  • No assembly required.
  • Made from 100% recycled plastic waste.

The NestGuest hedgehog house was carefully and thoughtfully designed by Nick Fairburn in 2021 after he started helping hedgehogs at a rescue centre in Gloucestershire.

  • Siting

    Leaving the entrance accessible, it's important to assimilate your NestGuest Hedgehog House into the environment. Position out of direct sunlight and under foliage. Use plenty of leaf mould and logs to cover the structure while leaving the ventilation holes clear - then wait for prospective tenants!

  • Nesting area dimensions

    The image shows dimensions and details the overall area of the nesting section. With only two corners, the nesting area provides more useable space.

  • Ventilation

    The roof section (shown upside down) includes eight ventilation holes along each straight edge. This provides fresh air circulation above where the hedgehogs reside.
