Castle Play Fortress

Project code: (PHC130973)

Built to order over an existing sand pit and strong enough to resist the most boisterous of "attacks", this castle fortress provides endless opportunity for adventurous and imaginative play.

Covering an existing sandpit of 8ft square and at a height of 5ft, the platform area of this castle fortress is accessed via a staircase to the left hand side. 

The castle itself sits, protected from invaders and uninvited parents, to the back of the platform, there are castellated walls with two unglazed slit windows on each side of the platform which provide look out points on all sides of the structure. 

The castle  has a central standard style door with a cross shape cut out, two glazed slit windows to the front and and on the right and left hand side of the the castle. 

The castle is fitted internally with four push lights, a whiteboard and internal bench and foldaway table which were all deemed essential in the planning of various games, as indeed were the trap door with fixed wooden ladder and the secret panel; but we swore a sacred oath not to tell you too much about either of those items! 

Externally a corded flagpole with pirate flag was fixed in the front left hand corner, while both a telescope and periscope were fitted to the castellated walls and a climbing wall with knotted rope is accessed via an open doorway on the right hand side of the platform.

This castle was painted internally at an extra cost, this can be added if required.

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
