Ideal for children with an active imagination, the Wild West Playhouse encourages their creativity. Whether your child or grandchild loves horses and needs somewhere to stable their make-believe pets, or if the kids are looking for a jailhouse to make their games of cops and robbers more real, this is the perfect novelty playhouse.

The two large fixed windows and matching window in the barn door are made with vertical wooden bars to simulate a jail or stable, and are glazed with environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene, a safer alternative to glass. The stylised veranda is perfect for tying up a make-believe horse, and there's plenty of ways to personalise the building to suit the children's imaginations. The door is also fitted with safety hinges to protect little fingers, giving you added peace of mind.

The Shire Wild West Playhouse has high-quality pine shiplap cladding with a sturdy tongue and groove construction, giving you a neat and durable outer wall. This 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, ensuring a quality finish and a playhouse that will really last.

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 Wild West 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.

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.

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.
