With access to countless cartoons, apps and games in the digital world, encouraging young children to get outdoors and play is an increasingly difficult challenge for many parents. Forest Garden, the UK’s leading manufacturer of timber garden furniture, has a range of playhouses which are both imaginative and affordable, so children will want to play in the garden all day until dinner time!

Forest Garden’s Basil Multiplay Playhouse gives children the best of both worlds – an indoor retreat with a stable door to play in and a sheltered outdoor veranda.

RRP £499.99

The Sage Playhouse is charming and traditional and offers a comfortable and cosy setting to inspire young imaginations. Front and side styrene windows with cottage-style square grilles offer the perfect lookout position, and a child-safe stable door with two independently-opening panels adds flexibility and fun.

RRP £329.99

The Thyme Kids’ Kabin is taller than a standard playhouse and offers older children a retreat which they can enjoy throughout their childhood. It is the ideal choice for families with older and younger children, so that everyone can be involved with playtime.

RRP £489.99

With its own decked and covered veranda, the Parsley Cottage Playhouse features a delightful picket fence surround. Its front and side styrene windows with square grilles and decorative wood panelling add to the quaint cottage style.

RRP £469.99



The Sage Tower Playhouse has the added thrill of a sturdy 3-step ladder and a viewing deck which is a full meter off the ground, so fairytale castles can become a reality! The area underneath the raised deck also provides practical covered storage for toys, and the platform is finished with banisters along two sides for peace of mind while your children play.

RRP £454.99

All of Forest Garden’s Playhouses conform to EN71 European safety requirements for toys and feature child-safe stable doors, with safety hinges to prevent little fingers from getting trapped. Playhouses are delivered unpainted, so that you can choose a theme, be imaginative with colours and get the children involved in creating their dream playhouse!

They are constructed from pressure-treated timber which carries a 15-year guarantee against rot and fungal decay so will withstand many years of use.
