When it comes to having fun, being active and enjoying stimulating, imaginative play, what better than this all-in-one activity package from Mercia.

Part of the Rose playhouse family, this is the ultimate package designed to keep young children and their friends happy for many years to come.

Whether it’s a look-out tower for marauding enemies, a defence point for fire breathing dragons or a little play den with appealing benefits, your children will be inspired by this fun-packed building and its exciting accessories.

Comprising of a sturdy tower-based playhouse and attached rope swing, the play possibilities are taken up another notch with this fabulous addition to any garden.

Easy access is gained to the tower platform by the sturdy wooden ladder and quick exits by the attached wavy plastic slide. The single heavy-duty rope connected swing is the icing on the cake and is safely secured to the tower by a tough wooden ‘A’ frame.

Having a traditional apex-roof design, and sat atop its sturdy tower, the Rose Playhouse is a roomy but compact building manufactured from 12mm planed and rounded Baltic-sourced timber and comprises of factory machined tongue and groove boards. This will make certain a tight and robust construction is achieved which will be splinter free, hard-wearing and water resistant.

Don’t worry about the windows either – they’re fixed and glazed with 100% shatter-proof styrene making them a safe alternative to glass. The roofing felt is included too along with all the fixtures and fittings enabling an easy trouble-free assembly experience.

Ensuring tough and long-lasting performance, the floor comprises of a solid-sheet 10mm OSB board adding 28mm bearers underside to improve rigidity.

Treat your building with one of our top-quality garden shades from Protek and your Activity Centre will be well protected and looking tip-top well into the future.

Fun-time starts here with the Mercia Rose Tower Playhouse and Activity Set. Give your children a gift that will encourage fitness, keep them happy and entertained and hopefully should put a smile on your face too!

Please Note - All Mercia Playhouses are pre-treated with a water based timber treatment for protection during transit. In order to receive the full 10 year anti-rot guarantee on your Playhouse, it is necessary that you treat the Playhouse with a high quality, water-based, timber preservative prior to or shortly after construction. This will protect the timber from weathering on your Playhouse and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to manufacturer's instructions. We strongly recommend that children use this or any raised play structure under adult supervision at all times. Due to EU safety regulations this playhouse features a gap around the door to prevent children's fingers from becoming trapped. Suitable for ages 36 months.
