A Truly A-Maze-ing Play Castle

Project code: (PHC150746)

Lots of thought has gone into the location of this wooden play castle.  It has been constructed in the middle of a newly planted maze and will ultimately create a world hidden to all but the lucky ones who know the secret pathway through the maze.

A defined wood chip and bark base on the ground provides the home for a castle with waterproof lower section and lookout tower above.  There is an open platform to the front of the lookout tower and another to the left hand side.

The door to the castle is on the left hand side of the castle underneath the long walkway, It is hinged on the left hand side and has a cross cut out in the upper section of the door.  A rectangular non-opening window flanks each side of the door and two more windows to the front of the castle allow plenty of natural light into the castle.

The look out tower on top of the castle is accessed via a long staircase that leads firstly to a stepped bridge and then to a walkway that leads to the tower.  The tower is access via an open octagonal topped doorway.

There is a scramble net attached to the walkway which might encourage invaders to attempt to gain entry but which may also prove essential if a speedy retreat from the castle is needed and other exit points are blocked.

The look out tower has 10 castle style slit windows to allow good all round visibility.  There is another open octagonal topped doorway to the front of the tower which leads to the open platform in front of the tower, this platform has a climbing wall with knotted rope attached and a slide which again provide challenging access and exit points if required.

The wood chip base was provided and prepared by the customer.

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
