A question often asked of us here at The Playhouse Company is “is my garden suitable for a playhouse?” The answer is almost always YES – our playhouses are custom built to your specific requirements; so, whether you’ve got a steep slope, an ancient tree, or the tiniest of tiny spaces available, we can usually build the perfect playhouse for your space.
The incredible power of a child’s imagination can transform any space into the most far-fetched of fantasy worlds. Given the room to move and grow, a child can become anything they want to be; from a cowboy to a policeman, brave knight to pirate and beyond.
2018 sees The Playhouse Company celebrate an amazing 25 fun-filled years of bringing little imaginations to life and creating fantastical outdoor play areas for children; but how and why did it begin, and what keeps The Playhouse Company as one of the most popular in the UK?
The playhouse needs to fit in your garden creating a fun area for the children to play BUT also needs to share the garden with its other users i.e. Mum and Dad so keep the project in scale to where you are.
2. The children will be excited and love it, they need to be involved in the design but beware of promising everything
October is with us and that means one thing. Halloween. The last celebration before the Christmas chaos starts. Halloween seems to be getting bigger and bigger each year with more and more people having parties and little ones going around their neighbour’s houses trick or treating.
But why do we celebrate Halloween? Every year we wear scary outfits, bob for apples and carve pumpkins - but why?
So, September is here, which means one thing back to school. If your child is starting school for the 1st time they are probably a bit nervous. (and the chances are, so are you.) Yet the worries your child has about going to school for the 1st time are likely to be different to yours…
While you’re worried they might not have anyone to play with, your child is probably more concerned about whether any of their new friends like Lego or Frozen.
Here are some starting schools worries you and your child will have – but in VERY different ways.
The play area is fantastic, we love it, especially N.....! Thank you ever so much. Everything has been thought through so carefully and it is beautifully made. A huge thank you to Richard for his amazing design. It blends into the garden incredibly well. N..... has been enjoying it a lot, as have his friends and myself and my husband!

As the girls are still quite young they like us to be in the garden with them when playing on it but we are not allowed inside - kids space only!! It is all very safe and cleverly thought out so we have no worries about letting them play on their own and they can not wait until they are a bit older so they can camp in it with daddy! The girls have older cousins and together they play for hours so I can't wait to see them develop with the playhouse as they get older'

We Are Unable To Accept New Commissions Presently
We are a small company, set up and run by Richard and Kay and supported by a skilled team of 4 who help build and deliver our projects.
Richard has recently had a health scare, and during the next few months of his recuperation we have decided, reluctantly, to limit the number of projects we take on and have decided to stop taking new commissions until December 2021.
Richard does all the design and manages the build and installation, and Kay is the voice you will speak to and help with advice and then making sure your project runs smoothly from inception to the children enjoying it in your garden. Over the past 30 years we have completed well over 1,000 projects, all to a greater or lesser extent custom designed. It is a great privilege to design and build playhouse and treehouses, and for us almost as much fun to design and build as the children have pleasure thereafter. We firmly believe that in order to design and build a great playhouse project you must love it just as much. We do love what we do and this makes it all the more difficult for us to pause enquiries, but health is paramount so makes this the only decision.
We assure all existing customers that your delivery obligations will be met in full and are always available for any queries about existing products.
If you would like to register an interest for a project in 2022, please just send us an email or give us a call and we will re-connect at the end of the year by which time Richard will be fully charged and ready to enjoy exciting new projects.
