Castle Playframe with Raised Shelter and Platform

Project code: (PHC160590)

This play structure includes a ground level castle playframe, a raised shelter with low panel walls and an open raised platform and transforms the uneven ground at the bottom of this garden into a great space for outdoor adventures.

The castle playframe has an open octagonal- topped doorway and castle slit windows to the front and once inside there is a staircase that leads through a second open doorway to a walkway and then to the raised shelter.  

The Shelter platform has independent access via a staircase to the left hand side.  Additional access points are a great way of increasing the play potential around our play structures as they allow children to make different circuits around their playhouse or castle.

The Shelter is 4ft (1.2m) square and sits 2ft (0.6m) above the ground.  It has low panel walls and a cedar shingle roof.  There is a climbing wall with knotted rope on the right hand side which provides alternative access with a challenge where youngsters can practice their climbing skills.

A second walkway leads from the shelter to the open platform, this too is 4ft (1.2m) and is 4ft (1.2m) above ground to accommodate a slide.

The staircases and raised areas are protected with balustrade rails.

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
