Why are wooden playhouses the best material choice?

The majority of playhouses sold in the UK are wooden. They are a perfect choice for a traditional or classic garden scheme and blend in well with other garden furniture (especially timber furniture).

With a little carpentry skill, wooden playhouses are more customisable when contrasted to metal and plastic playhouses. They do require more maintenance, which we discuss in our treating playhouses section below and can also be easily painted. Wooden playhouses are much heavier than plastic playhouses and will not move or (in extreme winds) blow away.

Buy our children’s wooden playhouses as a long-lasting and durable piece of outdoor furniture. Our entire range feature either shiplap tongue and groove, or standard tongue and groove, which makes them weather-resistant, insect and rodent repellent and built to last.

Choosing a base for your children’s wooden playhouse

Depending on the type of wooden playhouse that you choose, you will probably require a base to ensure that the playhouse sits on level ground, while also protecting it from water damage. Make sure you research the best options when choosing a base. 

Wooden playhouses on stilts (tower playhouses) are not affected by water damage as the fact that they are raised on stilts allows them to avoid contact with water.

Treating your timber playhouse

Some of our wooden playhouses come pressure treated, which means that they are protected against the elements and no further treatment is required.

However, those that come dip-treated will require an annual treatment to keep them free from rot and keep them standing for years to come. This is a simple process and can be carried out using wood treatment found in most hardware stores.

Painting options

One of the benefits of wooden playhouses is that they can be easily painted, allowing you to customise your playhouse and make it unique.

Painting your playhouse will also double up as a treatment, helping to waterproof the wood and keep it strong against whatever the British weather has to throw at it.

What are the benefits?

There are many benefits of buying a wooden outdoor playhouse. They last throughout childhood and often last for several generations! For the thousands of hours of fun, they bring the cost is appealingly low.

They are also an attractive garden feature in their own right and keep the kids happy when you are entertaining. Children’s wooden playhouses promote outdoor play, create happy memories, and get kids off technology!

There are many health benefits of buying wooden playhouses, these are discussed in our “Can I buy a wooden playhouse with slide and swing?” section below. One final benefit is the space they bring, this is of immeasurable value in reducing clutter and enables garden toys and games to be safely and securely stored.

Do you have options for a wooden playhouse with slide and swing?

Yes, a number of our wooden playhouses manufactured by Mercia are supplied complete with slides or swings.

Why choose a playhouse with a slide?

Add a bit of fun to your garden by choosing a wooden playhouse with slides, your children will never be short of playmates! Using slides, kids improve their sense of location and position mid-slide using proprioception, whilst also developing their vestibular system. Slides help children to experience nature, the colours, and the smells and are also great for developing balance, reflexes, and coordination.

Our wooden playhouses with slides are not just fun, they're safe too. Crafted from high-quality European sourced timber, these playhouses are built to withstand the elements and provide years of outdoor fun. The interlocking tongue and groove panels ensure a sturdy construction, while the slide adds an extra element of excitement for your little ones.

Why chose a playhouse with a swing?

Transform your wooden playhouse with slide into an outdoor children’s play area by adding a swing to your slide. Swings are great in helping kids release excess energy and also help with the absorption of Vitamin D. A place to destress and calm down, garden swings help to develop motor skills and coordination. A number of the wooden outdoor playhouses for sale on this page are also sold complete with a swing within the price. You can also buy swings separately on our swings and slides page.
