Hidey Hole

Project code: (PHC150201)

The Hidey Hole is a wonderful idea that provides a "secret" hiding place in the garden to fire your childrens' imaginations and help them discover their independence while keeping them safely within your reach.

The Hidey Hole was inspired by the idea of a hobbit house; a hiding place that feels like a refuge from the outside world, where at the same time children can begin to explore their own worlds.

The attractive curved roof enhances this feeling of being in a secret place that is different to home and even has a sense of being underground; an idea that excites young minds and leads to all sorts of imaginative play games.

The cedar shingle roof and sides blend into the natural environment and provides a cosy weather-proof place to get away from it all.

The door is a stable door which is a very popular feature in many of our playhouses, allowing light in if the top section is open but keeping things cosy and keeping adults out if both sections are shut!

A diamond shaped window in the back wall allows natural light into the Hidey Hole and the mushroom shape above the door is a feature on all our Hidey Holes.

The Hidey Hole as standard is finished in Woodruff but Hidey Holes are also available with the door and window in Blue Peter and Dark Dusty Rose: this would be at an extra cost of £100.

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
