Teddy Bears Cottage

A Christmas Gift That Keeps on Giving

A Christmas Gift That Keeps on Giving

If the little ones have been especially well behaved this year and have made their way on to Santa’s nice list, why not really treat them with a special playhouse of their very own on Christmas morning?  The Playhouse Company specialises in bespoke creations that go way beyond the traditional playhouse. Designs are flexible and built for your space; incorporating trees, uneven ground and even existing landscaping.  Exciting extra accessory options include rope swings, slides, bridges, benches, climbing walls, canopies, stairs, swing seats, rope ladders, turrets, flag poles and even monkey bars, ensuring the fun lasts well beyond Christmas and through the years to come.

Cottage playhouse with slate roof


Traditional Cottage Playhouse (PHC 151058)
From £3,160
The classic cottage style playhouse creates a perfect outdoor play space for children without taking up too much room. With just a little bit of imagination, it can easily be a shop, a school, a den or a little house; children can spend hours making it their own. Add a slate roof, stable door, a letter box, and even window boxes to encourage an interest in getting green fingered.



Gypsy Caravan (150408)
From £2,115
The aesthetically pleasing Gypsy Caravan sits on static “wheels” and features a charming stable door, bright windows and beautifully painted walls, giving it a light and airy interior. Nestled at the bottom of the garden, it can seem a million miles away from home for both the parents and children! Many colour combinations are available, and you can let the little ones’ creativity flourish even further by allowing the children to decorate it themselves.


Childrens Hidey Hole

Hidey Hole (150201)
From £1,755
Children can have their own secret hiding place with the Hobbit inspired Hidey Hole. Transport children into a magical land where the storytelling never ends with this quirky hideaway, which features a curved roof to make little ones feel like they’re hiding away underground in their own private space. The cedar shingle roof and sides blend into the natural environment, just like a den at the bottom of the garden - hide and seek has never been more fun!


Treehouse (080826)Childrens garden treehouse
From £5,480
Playhouses on platforms and treehouses are great for gardens with uneven ground, mature trees or existing landscaping. Platforms can be of varying heights and sizes to allow for the addition of extra accessories such as slides, swings, scramble nets and even bridges!



Childrens castle

Castle (151159)
Where better for imaginative children to escape than to their very own castle! The Castle Playhouse is the perfect fortress. It sits on its own wooden decking with a low fence at the front and back to keep invading parents at bay. It also features two open doorways flanked by open arrow-slit style windows and a castellated wall. Inside the realms of the castle, there is a raised area leading to the second entrance giving lots of space to play in, and out!


Richard & Kay Frost


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.

Thank you for your support
