The Playways Otter cottage is a real feature building both inside and out. The inside of this handmade playhouse is lined throughout with plywood, and then given at least 3 coats of paint, so that it is just like the plastered walls of a real house. The gable shape over the door is carried on inside. Although this is a complex piece of craftsmanship we believe it is worth it as really helps make the inside feel light and airy as well as adding charm and architectural character to the interior of the playhouse. What is also worth mentioning about the inside of our Otter Cottage children’s playhouse is that a person over 6 feet tall can stand upright inside with ease.
Outside the cottage is painted using colours that you have selected. The roof, including that stunning gable feature is made from Cedar shingles. Charming to look at, they are a proper roofing material that is very suited to the high variation of climate and weather that we see in the United Kingdom.
The Otter Cottage playhouse is placed on a raised deck that forms the basis of the wooden climbing frame, and enables a huge variation of activities to be incorporated.
As a start, the Otter Cottage playcentre includes a slide, steps, a climbing wall and the ever popular fireman’s pole. It is then possible to add all sorts of exciting extras, including monkey bars, scramble nets and swings.
You can of course take things even further and add lower dens, bridges and towers. These are our Otter Cottage Mega Playhouse climbing frame and the Otter Cottage Combo playhouse climbing frame.
Combing all of these elements together, and more leads you to the Otter Cottage Mega Combo playhouse climbing frame.
All our handmade playhouses and wooden climbing frames are made for high quality joinery timber that is planed to a smooth finish, and is pressure treated to protect against rot and to ensure it has a long life out of doors. We carefully add rounded edges to all the exposed edges. Our timber suppliers are FSC and PEFC accredited.
