Simply click on any of the images below to explore our carefully assembled collection of small wooden playhouses or click on “View Details” under each product. We have also prepared a comprehensive playhouse buying guide, which we recommend anybody considering buying a playhouse to read.
Our small playhouses range from 4’x4’ to 6’x8’ in size with 4’x4’ and 6’x4’ being the most popular sizes. These sizes are certainly large enough for younger children’s needs. If you need something bigger, either look at all our playhouses or our large playhouses page.
Our entire range of small playhouses are wooden, we believe wood is the best material for children’s playtime. Splinter-free our small playhouses are smooth planed and finished in style. Manufactured by top-quality manufacturers in Shire or Mercia, receive a ten-year guarantee with any playhouse you buy. This generous guarantee is due in part to the dip treatment of the timber, which will require annual retreatment with a top-quality wood preservative to keep it in tip-top condition.
Note: for Shire playhouses. “These are pre-treated with a water-based timber treatment, which provides protection during transit. To be eligible for the 10-year anti-rot guarantee, these playhouses must be treated with a high-quality, spirit-based, timber preservative prior to or shortly after construction”.
Other features to look for include the roofing style, which is virtually all apex style, with a few playhouses being available with a pent style. All are single door entry and have high-quality tongue and groove or shiplap tongue and groove cladding. This cladding is extremely strong and also keeps out unwanted intruders, such as insects and rodents.
A number of our small playhouses also feature integrated slides, these are included within the purchase price indicated. We also have one playhouse that features both a swing and slide set within the price. You can also buy a small playhouse with slide and/or swing, on any model which does not have an integrated swing and slide by simply adding them as an added extra during your purchase.
Sometimes “less is more”, this can certainly apply to small playhouses, this depends upon your personal circumstances. Usually, we find the main reason for buying a small wooden playhouse is available space. Often homeowners are looking to fill a particular part of the garden where space is too restricted for larger playhouses.
Small playhouses, of course, also cost less, so where available funds are limited, this can be another advantage. They are also more portable, with the majority of our small playhouses being able to be moved with 3-4 people. This is convenient if you are likely to change the location of your playhouse at a later date after installation.
Our small playhouses are also built with later painting in mind. Painting your playhouse enables it to be customised and unique to your kids preferences. If you use paint with a wood preservative it can double up as a wood treatment too, this kills “two birds with one stone”!
Talking about installation and building, naturally, it is easier to build and set up a small wooden playhouse than it is to build a larger playhouse. We find that a person who is “handy” with DIY skills will be able to complete the build with few problems. Specifically designed with younger kids in mind, our small playhouses are also less “threatening” to youngsters than larger playhouses, which might appear daunting (at first).
