Teddy Bears Cottage
White Christmas Childrens playhouse

It’s Christmas! Well nearly, and we are very busy building and preparing our last playhouses to be installed just in time for the big day.

Welcome to the new look of The Playhouse Company website! We’d love to know what you think; hopefully it shows off the range of fantastic projects we can build. The hardest part has been choosing which projects make it onto the site as we have so many beautiful ones to choose from. Each one is built individually from scratch in our Herefordshire workshop so you can be sure it is one of a kind!

So what do you think makes something stand out? We think uniqueness makes things stand out and these three treehouses and playhouses certainly are unique.

Making big decisions can be difficult!! Big decisions like do you chose from the pretty cottage playhouses where you can sit and have a teddy bears picnic, or do you chose the play castle where you can slay the nasty dragon? Well here at The Playhouse Company we make it easy with this project, you don’t have to choose, have both!

Who else is very jealous of Rosie and Raggles? We know here at The Playhouse Company we all are as Rosie and Raggles get to live in their playhouse. We all know that we can’t really live in a playhouse but if we could, one of our playhouses delivered to some very lucky children this week wouldn’t be a bad choice to live in.

Climbing wall shelter and rope bridge

The Sochi winter Olympics are finished and with the sunshine shining down on us none of us here at The Playhouse Company are thinking about the snow.  Not something we’re used to here in England, let alone in March! The delivery boys have had their sunglasses and sunhats on for deliveries this week but what a great time to be outside in the garden making the most of your playhouse or just enjoying the fresh air. Although don’t forget to think about sunhats and sun cream, don’t want any little sun burnt noses running around.

Where did 2013 go? We must have missed it here at The Playhouse Company.  We can’t believe we are at the front gates of 2014 already, but there is a lot of excitement for the year ahead. Before Christmas we cleared out our workshops and even gave the office a dusting too.  At The Playhouse Company we have been brainstorming some great new offers and products for the year ahead (don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to take full advantage of these offers).

As this chilling Autumn is drawing to an end and Winter is finally upon us, getting outdoors is more exciting than ever before. These cold icy mornings cause such beauty across the British landscape and supply us and our children with new and exciting opportunities to play and explore.

October is here already. The best summer in years is finally over and we will all mourn its passing. As we start to hibernate inside our homes and head into a blustery autumn we will look back in fondness at all the cherished memories we made outside in that glorious sunshine.

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
