A similar design to the Nature Reserve Hide but without a disabled section, instead, much larger viewing windows for better visibility for everyone.  Each 1.8m section in the Classroom Hide has 2 large fixed viewing windows for safety and can be manufactured using 1 way glass as an optional extra which is perfect for excited children to get closer to the birds and other wildlife without disturbing them.

for easy access and is manufactured with a disabled section as standard at the front of the hide for wheel wheelchair users with plenty of leg room allowing wheelchairs to fit comfortably. The hide comes with 3 viewing windows, 1 large window at the front and 1 on each side allowing better visibility all around the garden and 1 bench.


All of our listed products can also be manufactured from recycled plastic rather than timber. In the right circumstances, recycled plastic is an excellent alternative to using timber and has many benefits; it’s stronger, it’s much harder to ignite, it’s maintenance free and lasts a life time. Ask for further details.

Disabled Friendly

We strongly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience our bird hides. This is why we have adapted them to cater for disabled and wheelchair users needs e.g. by offering disabled sections with plenty of leg room ideal for wheelchair use, lower viewing windows, wider entrance door and disabled access ramps (depending on how high the hide is off the ground).

Design choices…

Bird Hides can be as small or large, or as simple or complex, as required to suit your location, needs and budget.

Bespoke build to customer specification

Unique situations and sites require unique builds. Any size and shape can be built to suit your needs or the needs of your site. Bird hide base construction can be adapted to suit ground conditions, whether solid ground, marshy land, or over water.
