Each Luxury Bird House Handbuilt to order
The Boutique Builders For Garden Birds!
At Slatebirdhouses, we build luxury bird houses that pamper. Weatherproof, warm and ideal for breeding pairs they make a beautiful addition to any garden.
Making your garden a haven for birds looking to find a home isn’t just about hanging up a bag of peanuts when the weather turns nasty. There are lots of ways to give bird populations a boost, from creating new nesting places to introducing plants and trees rich in nuts and berries.
Birdboxes that help nature thrive
From Craftsman To Crafter….
Slatebirdhouses is a home based business in the UK that has grown from our family’s passion for the garden and the wildlife it attracts. Alan qualified as a dry stone waller some years ago as a hobby and now puts his talent to good use providing beautiful, high quality luxury bird houses for our feathered friends.
Keeping it in the family, Alan’s daughter Laura is now learning the trade, and he has taken the apprentice under his wing.
I Was Originally Inspired By A Bird Box I Had Seen Imitating A Stone Nesting Box, But It Was Actually Made Of A Moulded Plastic And I Thought ‘I Can Make Those Properly’.
What Our Client Say
When 'Off The Shelf' just won't do
Looking for That Extra Special Gift?
or just looking to pamper your garden….
Our first commission came from a family who live nearby. They were residing in what used to be the post office in the old village of Park Bridge, which is now a country park along with neighbouring Daisy Nook, and has been converted into their home.
Researching the tit family, I found that they don’t colonise so the interior was divided into three sections with only the section behind the bird entrance accessible by the birds. This made the compartment a cosy hole in which to nest and rear their fledglings.
After an article about our bird houses and feeders was published in ‘World of Interiors’ our houses went global and we had people ordering from all around the world.
We have since replicated a barn commissioned as a birthday gift for a family in the Caribbean, completed replica builds of family homes for special anniversary presents, and sent boxes to America with larger entrance holes for the native birds. Larger cottages have also been commissioned for sparrows with three accessible compartments as, unlike the tit family, sparrows are happy to live together in colonies.
I always endeavour to produce the best quality Luxury bird houses I can and I always aim to keep the replicas in proportion wherever possible. Should you have that special project you would like me to undertake get in touch and I'll be happy to discuss your requirements with no obligation
