The Double Storey Swiss Cottage 7 x 5 + Verandah lets your children create their own fun world with endless adventures and lots of space to play. Your children will love the outdoors when you buy this wooden cottage playhouse. The playhouse is spread over two floors, so there is lots of space for the kids to get active with their friends. The window boxes, scalloped edge fascia board, and wonderful verandah make this a charming playhouse with an appealing design.

There is so much space for imaginative play with two floors to explore and an outdoor verandah. Multiple styrene glazed windows make the interior light and bright. Plenty of space, a sturdy and safe design, and the best quality materials make this a garden cottage playhouse that children can enjoy all year round.

The Double Storey Swiss Cottage is UKCA certified and suitable for ages 36 months+ made following Toys (Safety) Regulation 2011 (EN71). Rounded and planed timbers help prevent splinters; the windows have shatterproof styrene glazing, and a 12mm finger gap around the door prevents little fingers from getting trapped.

Shatterproof styrene windows help make the interior bright, and you won’t need to worry about any unfortunate mishaps from breakages. As your children play with this fun and safe playhouse, you have peace of mind.

Top-quality fixings, high-grade roofing felt, and assembly recommendations from the manufacturers are all supplied with your order. The playhouse construction uses Shiplap boards attached to solid internal frame timbers to produce weather-resistant and hard-wearing panels.

Please note: Images may depict furnishings and accessories; these are for illustration purposes only and are not included. We strongly recommend that children use this two storey playhouse under adult supervision 

Playhouse Aftercare:

The wooden cottage playhouse is supplied unpainted and includes a water-based base coat on both sides applied for protection during transit. To enjoy your playhouse for many seasons, you must apply a preservative and waterproofing topcoat immediately after installation. Using this initial treatment, followed by subsequent annual treatment of the playhouse, will maintain the high-quality finish. It is also a requirement for the 10-year anti-rot guarantee. A 1-year manufacturer's warranty is included.

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.
