With the Shire Cubby Playhouse, your child will be introduced to the world of imaginative play. The cottage-style playhouse allows for your little one to explore and enjoy the garden in their own unique space. Equiped with two four-pane windows that open, as well as a single door with a porthole, the Shire Cubby Playhouse is light and airy. Outside, the veranda offers shelter, shade, and beauty, allowing your child to enjoy the playhouse throughout the entire year. 

The Shire Cubby Playhouse has copious amounts of space and will last as your child grows. It is constructed from high-quality softwood in a tongue and groove fashion, which promises durability and sturdiness as well as being resistant to the weather. Safety is also prioritised, with shatter resistant styrene window panes, and a safe gap for fingers around the door that will protect from accidents. 

Supplied with a dip-treated base coat as standard, there are options of finishing the Shire Cubby Playhouse with a top coat for a stronger and golden brown finish. As it is only treated with a base coat, there is plenty of opportunity to personalise this playhouse to your child's favouite colour scheme. 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 Cubby 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.

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).

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.
