Investing in a kids playhouse or Wendy House offers numerous benefits, making them a superb long-term addition to any garden. They are cost-effective and serve as an excellent way to inspire imaginative outdoor play, creating magical childhood memories.
Outdoor play is vital for children, promoting active engagement that helps develop strong muscles, coordination, and fitness. Additionally, exposure to sunshine provides essential vitamin D, boosting the immune system, aiding bone health, and contributing to positive moods. Furthermore, playhouses encourage social interaction and role-playing, fostering essential child development skills.
Beyond their positive impact on children's well-being, garden playhouses themselves are attractive features, especially when customized with a unique paint job. They also offer practicality by providing space to store garden toys and games.
Ensuring children's safety is our top priority. That's why we exclusively source outdoor playhouses from reputable, industry-leading manufacturers with exemplary safety standards.
Our children’s playhouses for sale fully comply with EN71 Safety Standards, incorporating features that prioritize children's protection. The timber used is smooth planed with rounded corners to minimise the risk of painful splinters, cuts, and bruises during play. Windows are made from shatterproof styrene, a safer alternative to glass, preventing dangerous fractures when hit by toys or balls.
Many of our impressive two-story playhouses come with handrails on ladders, providing extra support for safer climbing. Additionally, doors are equipped with either magnetic catches or specially designed no-trap hinges, eliminating the risk of fingers getting caught.
These clever safety features ensure an incredibly safe wooden playhouse environment. However, we always recommend adult supervision during outdoor play for added security.

Our full selection encompasses a wide variety of playhouse designs, suitable for a range of ages and price ranges.
Our traditional outdoor playhouses typically feature Georgian-style windows and shutters; some are even two storeys. These charming outdoor buildings allow children to create games based around having their own little ‘grown-up’ house.
Tower playhouses offer another level of fun. The space beneath is useful too; maybe it could become a sandpit, a den, or a place to store toys? Many tower playhouses also come complete with slides which can provide hours of fun for children.
As well as more standard models, we also have some unique, innovatively designed garden playhouses to really encourage imaginative games. Take a look at our wooden tepee and command post playhouses for example.
To create something truly special for your children to enjoy, be sure to add personal touches to your new playhouse. To start with, a custom paint job to suit your garden or your children’s ideas will look terrific.
You could also consider adding colourful bunting, curtains, solar fairy lights and play furniture.
Why not add a little herb garden trough to teach budding gardeners about plants?
The possibilities are endless.
Our outdoor playhouses come complete with one of two different types of treatment. The first, dip treatment, guarantees against rot for a substantial 10 years, provided the playhouse is annually re-treated with a high-quality wood preservative.
The second is pressure treatment. Pressure treated outdoor playhouses boast impressive 15 year guarantees (all within the price) against both rot and fungal decay with no requirement for annual retreatment.
There are different qualities of wooden playhouse construction. Overlap playhouses are cheaper – they’re built from vertically overlapping timber slats affixed to a sturdy frame.
If you’re interested in a higher quality playhouse, tongue and groove or shiplap buildings are superior. Constructed from thick interlocking timber boards, these garden playhouses are more robust and durable than cheaper alternatives.
The term ‘Wendy House’ is predominantly used in the UK and takes its origins from J. M. Barrie’s play Peter Pan. In the story, a character named Wendy Darling is shot with a bow and arrow by mistake and, consequently, a small house is built around her for protection.
Today, Wendy Houses are commonplace in gardens and enjoyed by children around the world.
