Two Storey Playhouse with Raised Activity Platforms and Castle

Project code: (PHC160592)

This tailor-made playhouse and activity area really makes the most of the wonderful wooded area at the bottom of a lovely garden and creates a hidden world for some very lucky children.

This play structure includes four main elements, a two storey playhouse, a large open platform with central observation terrace, a platform with open topped castle and a small open platform with a swing gantry attached.

The playhouse has a ground level veranda with front door and windows with false shutters and window boxes on either side.  There are additional windows to the lower rear and right hand side of the playhouse and a shutter set to the left hand side.  The first floor has one opening window and a small door onto the external platform.

Internally there is a staircase which leads to a partial first floor with access to a door that leads out to an external walkway.  The walkway has a staircase to the ground at both the front and the back and a wobble bridge in the centre that leads to the large open platform.

The large platform is 10ft by 12ft (3m by 3.6m) and stands at a height of 4ft (1.2m).  It is set within existing trees and has a higher platform set within it to add to the excitement and feel of being within the tree canopies.  This observation terrace or "crow's nest" is an additional 2ft (0.6m) high and has a telescope attached to the balustrades at the front so children can keep a good look out and spot anyone who may try to approach.  

There are two low staircase access points to the "crow's nest".   A  large bench on the lower part of the platform provides a handy spot for some rest and relaxation and a ramp to the ground on the right hand side provides an easy route while a slide at the front and a scramble net to the left provide alternative and somewhat more challenging access/exit routes.  There is a monkey swing underneath this platform too.  

Access to the castle platform from the large platform is provide by a set of monkey bars.  The castle platform is 5ft (1.5m) square and sits at a height of 4ft (1.2m) above the ground; it is an open topped platform with castellated walls, three octagonal topped open doorways and five narrow castle windows.  There is a climbing wall with knotted rope from one of the doorways which suggests a castle drawbridge and provides an alternative access route too.

Another open doorway from the castle platform leads along a walkway to the final platform.  This too is 5ft (1.5m) square and sits at a height of 4ft (1.2m) above the ground.  It has a another slide and staircase access to the ground.  This platform also provides the fixing point for the double swing gantry with swing seat and baby swing.

All internal and external staircases and platforms are protected with balustrade rails 

Guttering with run off to ground is fitted but not included in the price, 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
