There’s so much to love about the Forest Basil Duo Playhouse! Its two-in-one design make this a brilliant option for personalisation, allowing kids to turn it into their own personal outdoor den or customise it for their favourite role playing games. Whether it's a pirate ship, a restaurant, or a stable, let their imaginations run wild with the Basil Duo.

A 4x4ft playhouse with an adjoining 4x4ft covered decking area, the Basil Duo allows plenty of space for multiple children to play together, and its extra height means the kids can keep enjoying it for years to come. Included in the design is a hatch and shelf for role playing, a stable door and multiple windows to allow in plenty of air and light, plus a sturdy bench for resting on or for using as a picnic area when relaxing after all that play.

Forest know that safety is incredibly important, especially when it comes to children, so the Basil Duo comes with some great safety features as standard. Special door hinges are included to protect little fingers, the smoothly rounded framework means there are no sharp edges, and the single glazed window is fitted with shatter resistant styrene, a safer alternative to glass.

The Basil Duo Playhouse is supplied pressure treated with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee, so you don't need to treat the wood yourself. But since the playhouse is delivered unpainted, if you choose to personalise it with some colour, we offer a range of Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish treatments in a number of natural stains and colours, ideal for adding an extra layer of protection to your playhouse.

Straightforward to assemble, the Basil Duo comes with a full set of clear instructions and all the necessary fittings.
