  • Shire Bunny Playhouse 4 x 4ft£229.00


            The 4 x 4 Shire Bunny is a simple yet charming playhouse that looks great in your child's favourite colours. With details like roof finials, four-paned windows, and a decorative door handle, this playhouse sets the imagination alight and keeps children entertained for many dreamy afternoons. A 4 x 4 footprint means this playhouse will fit snugly into almost any garden, and the shiplap timber cladding gives it a feeling of quality that goes well beyond its price. And with many design choices that make the Shire Bunny safer for use by children, any concerned adults will find just as much to love in this playhouse.


            As with all playhouses sold by elbec, the 4 x 4 Shire Bunny Playhouse has been developed in accordance with European safety standards (EN71) and features many details to help protect those playing inside. The two windows - one in the door and another beside it which can be opened - are each glazed with styrene. This transparent material allows plenty of light into the playhouse and is virtually shatterproof. Unlike traditional glass, this will not break into potentially dangerous shards that can cause injury. Both the opening window and the single door also feature safety hinges to keep small fingers away from moving parts.

            The basis of the Shire Bunny Playhouse's quality is found in its wall cladding. This 12mm shiplap cladding is made up of horizontal boards that fit tightly together in a 'tongue and groove' construction. The timber used is a sustainably sourced pine wood that has been pre-treated with a base coat as standard to protect the timber from rot and wear during transit and assembly. However, if you would like to start with a stronger degree of protection against the elements, select the top coat treatment option to receive a playhouse with a tougher protective treatment in a golden brown colour.

            Because this playhouse comes in natural wood colours, many love to personalise their playhouse with a colourful wood paint. In this sense, the Shire Bunny Playhouse is an excellent blank canvas to tailor to your child's favourite colours. When it comes to changing the look of your playhouse while protecting the timber from rot and damage, we recommend Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish, available to order in many colours through elbec.

            This playhouse is supplied flat-packed for easier handling and assembly. All fittings and parts are included in the delivery, along with detailed instructions so that you can put together the playhouse at home. We strongly advise putting your playhouse together with at least one other person, and you are likely to have a smoother experience if already familiar with similar practical projects. If this doesn't sound to your liking, you can always take advantage of our assembly service where dedicated builders will construct your playhouse on the customer's prepared base.

            Upon Delivery
            Delivery is made by Shire the manufacturer. Delivery of this item is typically made by a 17 ton flat-bed (similar size to a council refuse lorry). Delivery is typically between 7am and 7pm. The delivery drivers are only insured to deliver to kerb side or driveway. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product. Unfortunately we will not be able to go through your property. Deliveries are hand-balled off by the driver.

            We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.

            Installation option
            If you are choosing the installation option after placing your order you’ll be contacted within 5 working days by Shire the manufacturer either by a text message or automated telephone message (the latter if a mobile number is not supplied). This message will supply you with the name of the website to go on to where you will be required to accept the terms and conditions for assembly. Any delay in accepting these terms and conditions may affect your timescale. Once you have accepted these terms and conditions you will be contacted during the timescale with a date for the delivery/assembly of your order. The installation option will extend your lead time by up to 15-25 working days. This may take longer during seasonal periods. Please be aware that the installation team will require full access to your garden, 18" clearance all around the building and a firm and level base. Shire's installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer’s home.


            Please note: all imperial measurements are approximate, and the Shire Playhouses are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.
