  • Shire Stork Playhouse 6 x 4ft (Front Width x Depth)£347.99


            With its simplistic, classic design the Shire Stork Playhouse is the perfect place for young children to play in the garden. Its quaint, cottage-like appearance creates a sense of magic. The four paned windows have the ability to open, creating an airy open space. Alongside this is the built-in veranda, which will provide shade and cover throughout all seasons. 

            The Shire Stork Playhouse prioritises safety with environmentally-friendly shatter-resistant styrene window glazing, a safer alternative to glass, as well as safety hinges to prevent trapped fingers. The Shire Stork Playhouse is made from a high-quality planed softwood in a sturdy tongue and groove shiplap construction, meaning it is better sealed from the elements, as well as making it aesthetically pleasing. The floor is also constructed from tongue and groove boarding for a more water-resistant, longer-lasting build, and the roof is made from Oriented Strand Board (OSB). You can easily personalise the playhouse, as it comes pre-prepared with a base coat that will help paint last, along with an optional water-based topcoat. 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. Features FSC® certified timber.

            The Shire Stork 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.

            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.
