A child always remembers their first playhouse and the time they spend playing in their own miniature house, occupying imaginary worlds with friends. Choosing a premium quality playhouse, such as this 8 x 6 Mercia Bramble Apex Wooden Playhouse, is the best way to ensure this time is fun and will last until children are old enough to move on rather than prematurely wearing out. This children's playhouse is certain to become a favourite in any domestic garden, with its durable two-storey design, which features a mezzanine style loft that can be accessed by a short ladder with wide steps for easy climbing.


To create the most exciting play area possible, a range of features are packed into its charmingly petite design that set it apart from poor-quality alternatives. Two levels are created by a loft that can be reached by ladder, and the numerous windows ensure children playing inside can look out from both levels.

Safety is taken as seriously as it should be with this children's playhouse, rewarding this product with an EN71 rating according to European toy standards. Timber used has been subtly rounded to make it more comfortable on small hands, and a minimum 12mm finger gaps features in the single door to help avoid incidents. A railing ensures the mini-mezzanine is a safe spot to play. The glazing used for the windows is made from styrene, a highly durable and virtually shatterproof material that has been chosen for its safety.

The wall construction used is an eye-catching 12mm cladding with horizontal boards that tightly interlock in a classic tongue and groove style that would not be out of place on higher end workshops or sheds found elsewhere on elbec's website. Paired with a colourful and high-quality wood paint such as those found in the Protek range, this cladding offers a remarkable level of protection from the elements while making a striking impression. We love the look of a pastel coloured exterior with light accents on the window and frame details. The shiplap profile is especially good at diverting rainwater away from any vulnerable points in the cladding.

Another sign of the quality of construction boasted by this playhouse is the strong internal frame made up of 28mm x 28mm timber, and the robust solid sheet board used in both the roof and floor.


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 Bramble 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 Bramble 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.
