What Treasures are Hiding in Your Garden

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.

Every pirate needs a ship to sail the unruly seas, and all brave knights need a castle to defend from oncoming hordes - and how better than with their very own themed playhouse?Large Pirate Shop

The Playhouse Company creates bespoke play areas designed to the exacting requirements of any young hero or villain. From searching for treasure, battling invaders, strutting the ramparts and making captives walk the plank, a purpose-built play area can provide hours of play in a safe environment.


For budding buccaneers, the elevated Large Pirate Ship features an enclosed Captain’s cabin, octagonal port holes, crow’s nest and main deck – complete with ship’s wheel and telescope for spotting landlubbing parents.

Castles (and knights) come in all shapes and sizes, from the very small and cosy to the very grand.

This Castle treehouse incorporates the existing trees and steep incline into the design. It includes the exciting features of a secret entrance, drawbridge and wavy slide as well as the obvious castle staples of turrets and arrow slit windows.

Castles don’t have to be dark and imposing, the smaller and brighter Castle Playframe was built with fairy tales and princesses in mind, but still has plenty of room for fun and games.



If the thrill of adventure on the high seas and battling with invaders is just too much like hard work, the colourful Gypsy Caravan or Hobbity Hidey Hole might be what your garden needs.
With inspiration taken from traditional design, young adventurers are guaranteed to have some amazing stories to tell at bedtime.

We’re sure that whatever adventure your child embarks on; whether it be a journey to the centre of the Earth, a voyage across the Spanish Main, or even a trip to the sweet shop, they’ll love the beauty and simplicity of a Playhouse Company structure for years to come.

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
