Fairy tale Dens and Playhouses for all ages

Fairytale dens and playhouses for all ages and Basketmaking Workshops in Surrey and Hampshire. Designed to meet the child's need for imaginative play whilst being an attractive feature in the garden in its own right.

The curvy lines and arched windows give the house a fairy tale quality. The twin spires and forked flags swinging gently in the breeze put one in mind of a knight's encampment. Its ambiguous form transforms effortlessly from cottage to castle, wigwam to igloo. Any small child would be enchanted to find such an intriguing structure in their garden and will quickly make it their own. Handmade in England from natural english willow, the playhouse has impeccable environmental credentials.

The base is made from untreated pine. It too will gradually degrade but will be much safer for children to sit on than pressure treated timber. At the end of the playhouse's life, the base timber can be reused for a garden project or converted to firewood. 

Many playhouses don't allow for the fact that parents are inevitably invited in for tea parties! The Dreaming Spires playhouse allows adults a reasonable degree of comfort on such occasions! The dappled light which enters the house through the woven willow makes it a magical place to be.

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions about the playhouse or other products or if you have an idea for something completely different which you would like made out of willow! A Dreaming Spires Willow Playhouse costs £2,000 plus delivery.
