Willowbank Cottage
From £7500

Willowbank Cottage is a cleverly designed solution for small town gardens. Small garden spaces are a particular challenge. Every square centimetre counts, both in how the space is used and also on the visual and aesthetic impact introduced structures have on the look, feel and functionality of the space. This charming playhouse has been designed with several objectives in mind. Most importantly, it has to look stunning, not only externally, but internally as well. The inside of the main playhouse is ply-lined and painted. The roof is cedar shingle and the finish throughout is sumptuous. We wanted to create a building that could be placed anywhere, where there is no risk of being able to stand on a platform and see into a neighbours garden, and where whilst playing, children aren’t under observation from external view. We also wanted to create a multi-functional building, so a playhouse certainly, but one with activities also.

This building has 3 distinct play spaces. The main playhouse is 2m wide x 1.5m deep, and is a large play space. Through a doorway there is a second room downstairs. Above this is an upper area that gives access to a slide and a climbing wall. This upper play space is accessed by an internal ladder, there are doors to the upper space so that, when closed the playhouse is not open to draughts or weather.

    • We absolutely love our play centre. Martin suggested a design that fit perfectly in the space we had available. It's a fantastic, solid piece of equipment and our children (6yr, 4yr and 1 yr) think it's brilliant. The team who installed it were polite and did a great job. We look forward to many years of fun! Thank you Design Create Play 🙂

    • As a family we just couldn't decide between Climbing Frames or Playhouses.
      Many thanks to Martin and the team, they came up with a beautiful creation - a Playhouse on top of a platform Climbing Frame!
      Our children are now the envy of all their friends.


    • We are Still well pleased with ours! The kids love it. They even helped us with our request for a wheelchair swing so our son can play with his brother and sisters, I would highly recommend this company to anyone.
