The Playhouse Company Products are Built to Last.

We use only good quality materials and each stage of the design, build and finishing processes are carried out by hand by skilled craftsmen in our Herefordshire workshops.

We only use wood from fully accredited Forestry Stewardship Council suppliers.  Timber that is pressure treated is guaranteed against rot and insect attack for 3 years; All other timber is guaranteed against rot and insect attack for 3 years, and as long as the maintenance instructions, (click here for maintenance instructions), are adhered to.  We would expect our products to last substantially longer.

Playhouse with Activities


We appreciate that our children's playhouses are not the cheapest available, but we are equally sure that they represent excellent value for money. Browsing our website, we hope you will agree that our designs stand out from other garden playhouses you may have seen.  Indeed the initial reactions from our customers have convinced us over the years that our playhouses are model houses or castles that stir fond childhood memories.  This is just what we hope to achieve - we want to bring a fantasy alive for every child.

As you approach and climb onto or into your new playhouse you will feel how strong and robust it is. Another common customer comment at this point is "wow I could live in here". There is the smooth plywood lined interior, the soft flooring cut to the correct size, the smooth rounded redwood timbers, the hinged door and the light from the windows. You will realise you have bought not only a fantasy space but also an all-weather play space to get your little ones out of the house, away from televisions and computers and into the fresh air.

Our commitment to quality does not just involve what you see and feel.  As soon as you contact The Playhouse Company it becomes apparent that we really care about our customer service. From first contact of requesting a brochure or asking a question we will do whatever we can to deliver the right playhouse for you, and your children.  We work with you to find convenient dates for delivery and installation and we will deliver and install when we say we are going to deliver and install.

As time passes and your children are still playing in their wooden playhouse or wooden treehouse, the quality of materials we used and the quality of the build will really become apparent.  With only a little maintenance your play house will last for years, in fact we offer a relocation service for our playhouses as often families outgrow their houses before they outgrow their play-houses!

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
