Deep in enemy territory a secret place lies hidden from the eye. A place where young minds are letting their imaginations run riot.

The Mercia Hideaway Playhouse could be just the building you’re looking for to let your children explore their fantasies and take them to new and exciting places.

Although delivered in a factory coated dip-treatment, the building comes as a blank canvas giving you free-reign to decorate as you please. The possibilities are endless, be it a secluded jungle den or a desert fox-hole, paint your new playhouse using one of our high-quality garden shades from Protek and not only will the building look stunning, but remain protected from the elements for years to come.

Featuring a traditional apex-roof design, the building also comes complete with thin slotted windows ideal for mounting surprise attacks on unwitting passers-by! No glazing is included so peace of mind is ensured when exuberant play is involved.

With the exterior being manufactured from 12mm planed and rounded Baltic sourced timber and comprising of factory machined tongue and groove boards, the cladding is tough and durable and should be able to withstand many a strike from a mud pie or a well-aimed water gun!

Ensuring tough and long-lasting performance, the floor comprises of a solid-sheet 10mm OSB board with bearers attached underside giving just the right clearance from the ground. This will help the building to remain damp and mould free for many years to come. The door has also been designed with a small safety gap to help prevent tiny fingers from getting trapped.

Children are naturally drawn to playing outside and there are a multitude of benefits from outdoor play. Having a little place of their own in the garden can help develop their learning abilities, stimulate creativity and encourage them to be physically active. Lookout for The Mercia Hideaway Playhouse - fun for your children and their friends. Just be careful when venturing down your garden!

Please Note - All Mercia Playhouses are pre-treated with a water based timber treatment for protection during transit. In order to receive the full 10 year anti-rot guarantee on your Playhouse, it is necessary that you treat the Playhouse with a high quality, water-based, timber preservative prior to or shortly after construction. This will protect the timber from weathering on your Playhouse and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to manufacturer's instructions. We strongly recommend that children use this or any raised play structure under adult supervision at all times. Due to EU safety regulations this playhouse features a gap around the door to prevent children's fingers from becoming trapped. Suitable for ages 36 months.
