A child's first playhouse will become an exciting part of their early life thanks to the endless entertainment it provides. This is why it is best to choose a high-quality playhouse that will stand up to the elements and continue to give children a fun place to play for many years. The fun design of this playhouse, reminiscent of Swiss cottages, is perfect for roleplaying and disappearing into imaginary worlds. It therefore comes as no surprise that this is a highly popular model, enjoyed by parents for its low cost and excellent quality.


To ensure this playhouse is an exciting option for children's play outside the house, a range of features are packed into its bijou structure, setting it apart from cheaper alternatives. An apex roof does a good job of diverting rainfall away from the playhouse, and its large overhang at the front helps keep the worst of the weather from the Honeysuckle's interior. Attractive features like front railings, a wavy bargeboard to the roof, and two fixed windows culminate in a beautiful playhouse that children will cherish.

Safety of any young children playing in the playhouse is taken as an absolute priority, as is reflected by details like the 12mm finger gap around the single door, and rounded timbers that will not spring any nasty surprises on small hands. In addition to this, the fixed windows on either side of the door (plus the fun 'porthole' window in the door itself) feature styrene glazing that is shatterproof and far safer than many types of glass. It is the thoughtful inclusion of details like these that have led to this playhouse meeting the EN71 European safety standard for toys.

Much like many of Mercia's fully fledged garden sheds, the Honeysuckle playhouse features 12mm wall cladding using high-quality timber. Each timber is cut so that it can interlock in a 'tongue and groove' structure that creates a tight seal, ideal for protecting against the outdoors. This helps ensure that the playhouse will continue to be a clean and comfortable space for children to play long after purchasing. 8mm oriented strand board is strong and water resistant, making it the perfect choice for both the roof and floor of this playhouse.


This product will be delivered flat-packed and ready for home assembly, with all the parts and fixtures needed to do so along with an easy-to-follow instruction manual. It will take two adults to build, so elbec recommends enlisting the help of a friend. Experience of putting together similar projects will help to do so more quickly, but it is reasonable to expect the building of this playhouse to take one or two days.

Treating your Playhouse

All Mercia Playhouses are pre-treated with Aquatan, a water-based treatment which results in a golden-brown finish. Our factory applied dip treatment may differ in shade between components as it is simply a basecoat. This treatment only helps to prevent discolouration of the building while in storage and during transit. To validate your guarantee and ensure the longevity of the product, it is essential that the building is treated with a high quality, water-based, timber preservative prior to or shortly after construction. Annual re-treatment is required to maintain your building and the 10 year anti-rot guarantee.

Safety and Suitability

The Mercia Honeysuckle Playhouse is only suitable for children aged 36 months or above and must be sited outdoors. The playhouse has been awarded an EN71 Safety Certificate, highlighting the product’s quality and providing assurance as to its safety for this age group. 

Please note: The Mercia Honeysuckle Playhouse is supplied unpainted. Some images may show the product painted and/or decorated with accessories/furnishings. This is for display purposes only. Your order will not be delivered with any of the accessories/furnishings shown.

Booking Delivery

You will be required to book your delivery date at the time of placing your order (except for Metal Shed). Our 'Request a Delivery Date' service is available to the majority of areas and you'll find that the majority of the UK postcodes are FREE but some areas may incur a delivery surcharge and some postcodes are not covered at all. Select a 'requested delivery date' by entering your postcode in the 'Request a delivery date' section above. You will also be notified at this time if your area incurs a surcharge or delivery is not covered in your area.

Prior to Delivery

On the morning of your delivery date, you'll be sent an update by text with an estimated 2-hour delivery slot (this update can only be provided where a mobile number has been supplied on the billing address section at the time of checkout) together with a link to the manufacturer delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

Please note: Mercia Metal Sheds ONLY - your order is delivered by a courier you will not be notified prior to the delivery. If you are not in on the day of the delivery you will be carded and asked to contact the courier to arrange a new mutual delivery date. The estimated delivery lead time for Mercia's Metal sheds is identified on the product for the metal shed. Lead times are on working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturer. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

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.


Orders with Assembly 

The lead time for our installation option is around 12 weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.
