Willowbank Cottage


A completely unique playhouse. 3 different rooms and spaces over 2 levels. With all the excitement of slide and climbing wall.

Originally designed to be suitable for the smallest of town gardens, where there are overlooking properties and low walls and boundaries. We designed this wooden playcentre with the same design language that is used across the Otter and Damson range. The main part of the wooden playhouse is lined and then painted inside, so the interior walls are completely flat and painted, just like the plastered walls of a real house. The roof is cedar shingle. This length of the roof has 2 gables so that the line is deliberately interrupted. All to enhance the charm of this gorgeous designer playhouse. The lower part of the extension is an additional room, and the upper deck is completely covered, so all eyes forward.

Often in small town gardens it is really important not to provide your children with a vantage point to oversee your neighbours garden, the design of this playhouse achieves just that.

There is a wave slide and a climbing wall, activities as well as imaginative play. We can further enhance this custom playcentre with basket and pulley and window boxes.

This play centre comes complete with:

  • Willowbank cottage with main cottage space, lower room in extension, upper covered deck
  • Slide
  • Climbing rock wall
  • Window boxes

Buying a Design Create Play playhouse or climbing frame

We like to work with our customers to ensure that what we are building for you is going to be a seamless and trouble-free process. Often the best way to start is to give us a call (01404 598328) or drop us an email at [email protected]. We can talk through the options and possibilities with you, and discuss the specifics of you garden.

In many cases a visit to site can be useful. We’ll bring a tape measure, some blank paper, and plenty of photographic examples of our work for you to look at. We don’t charge for making site visits. Usually at the end of a visit it is possible to give you a price. Sometimes it may be necessary to go away and work up a design and a quotation.
Once you are happy with the design and proposal we will raise our Sales Order. We ask for a deposit of 40% of the value of the order. This can be paid online direct to our bank account, or we can take card payments over the phone, and as long as our bank still takes cash we’re happy to accept that too!

Once a sales order is in place and a deposit has been paid we will make the product in our workshop. We aim for a delivery and installation within 6 weeks of ordering, at busy times this may be a little more but is almost always within 8 weeks.

We deliver and install all our playhouses and climbing frames ourselves. Most playcentres are installed within one or 2 days. Large bespoke projects may take 3 or more days to build in your garden.
