A pretty and traditional building, the Den Playhouse from Shire is an attractive option bound to suit any garden. As its name suggests, this playhouse is ideal for turning into a den for the children to make their own, giving them a fantastic personalised space to learn and play in outside.

The ideal option for younger kids, this playhouse features two fixed front windows and two opening side windows to allow in plenty of light and air, and all the windows are glazed with environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene, a safer alternative to glass. The single door has a traditional look, with a diamond porthole window and classic fixings, and the opening windows and door all have safety hinges fitted to keep little fingers safe. This playhouse also comes with two window boxes, decorative shutters, and an attractive veranda with shaped fascia, all as standard.

With so many extra features included in the price, the Den offers excellent value for money, and can be used all year round, making it every child’s dream playhouse.

The high-quality shiplap cladding uses a sturdy tongue and groove structure to give you a durable yet pretty outer wall, which can also be upgraded to pine logs for improved insulation, sound proofing, and aesthetics. The floor and roof of the playhouse are also constructed from tongue and groove cladding, making the playhouse more water resistant for extended enjoyment.

All Shire playhouses are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water-based industrial product, but will not be pre-painted, giving you a blank canvas to tailor to the children's desires. The manufacturer recommends applying a water-based top coat of your choice, preventing the timber from weathering and therefore making the playhouse last longer. We offer a range of Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish treatments, available in a number of natural stains and colours, which is ideal for protecting your playhouse.

The Shire Den Playhouse is supplied flat-packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price, with clear, easy-to-follow instructions, though you can choose to add assembly if desired.

Please note: Due to the high quality of this playhouse, it is a fairly large structure, meaning it will not be able to fit through a house. Please ensure you have access available round a side passage or alternative access to the desired area where you intend to build it. Delivery will be kerbside unless assembly is chosen.
