Two castle towers and a playhouse

Project code: (PHC200373)

A castle on a hill. This is not just a castle it is a whole Fortified garrison on a steep hill including two towers a large playhouse a fortified bridge and interlinking platforms.

This castle and playhouse was designed to go in a steep garden location, the ground was sloping at about 25 degrees. This is an advantage for a project like this as it enhances the feeling of different heights when you are exploring it. 

The Play structure was also set well into existing shrubs to increase the magical feel when having fun.

Staring at the top you walk onto the first platform at ground level which gives access to a fully weatherproof house with pyramid style roof. The house is a good size allowing plenty of room for a gathering of the troops in between battles, it has a standard door, with a cross cut out in it, and 4 rectangualr glazed windows, two of which are opening:  a small vertical ladder leads you to a higher platfrom which has a slide coming off from it, which leads you straight under the castle bridge.

The platform extends down the hill and gives access into one of the castle towers, from here comes a climbing wall and also access to the bridge take you across to the 2nd tower.  This tower has a vertical internal ladder going back down to the ground and a scramble net giving lots of routes for the children to discover. Each tower is 1.2m square.

To the side of the castle tower is a single swing seat.

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
