Shedlands playhouses are the UK's leading "deluxe" playhouse manufacturers.  Just take a look at the beautiful range of playhouses we have on offer and you will see what we mean. Not only do they look fantastic and provide hours of imaginative play they are also manufactured in the UK.

Here at MadFun we recognised the popularity of the Smugglers Cottage playhouse and wanted to offer something a little better. The previous product was of modular construction so we worked with the manufacturers Shedlands to create a brand new playhouse. Modular playhouses are easy to identify as the walls of the playhouse are made by joining separate panels together. We have created an exclusive playhouse and called it the MadFun Smugglers Cottage by Shedlands. What are the improvements? Well the MadFun version is easier to build, doesn't have vertical joining strips, the side wall windows are central and not off centre due to the joining strips like the modular version. Hand built in the UK the MadFun Smugglers Cottage is also made from FSC Scandinavian red wood of the highest quality throughout, all the timber is solid tongue and groove and no OSB or chipboard is used within this building. As a result the MadFun Smugglers Cottage is a more attractive playhouse, easier to build and due to its construction will be enjoyed by generations.

Please note: The painted image shows what can be achieved with a coat of paint. Please see unpainted images of the new playhouse we have created. You will see the changes we have detailed.

Shedlands Smugglers Cottage children's playhouse is a large (8x5'6") apex roofed kids playhouse. It has two chimneys, a stable-style single door, plus four windows with shutters, and window boxes to front and side. These playhouses are manufactured from FSC Scandinavian red wood of the highest quality.

You can now choose the colour of your roof felt.  Please choose from either red or mineral green on the drop down above.  Please note the mineral green option appears very grey in colour.

Please be aware these beautiful playhouses are made to order and therefore have approximately 4 weeks lead time.   In the busy summer period this may be extended.  Selecting the painted option is also likely to extend the lead time.

Optional Extras:

Installation: We can arrange for your playhouse to be installed upon delivery, so you can just sit back and watch it appear before your eyes!

Top Coat: The playhouses arrive pre-treated (with a base coat of water based treatment). It's recommended that a top coat of treatment / stain be applied within a few weeks of installation. 

Decorative Coat: To achieve the look in our images, the playhouse will have to be painted. We can do this during the manufacturing process giving a fantastic finish. Please see the colour options below and make your selection using the drop down box above.   Please click here to review our FAQs relating to painted buildings.

FREE DELIVERY - This item is despatched free of charge within 28 working days to most UK postcodes. Other areas will have a delivery surcharge (dependent on the postcode) added automatically during checkout.

You will be contacted by the carriers to arrange a convenient date for delivery. Please allow an extra week if you require painting or installation.

Please ensure you can provide fair and reasonable access to the site. Please also consider the dimensions of the building (the base of the building is in one piece) as most buildings will not fit through a standard house door or manoeuvre around internal house corners. If your access is too small the base can be cut before delivery and then joined on site. This will incur an additional cost, but if the delivery fails due to access issues then a redelivery charge will also be incurred. Please contact us if you have any concerns to avoid any disappointment. 

Playhouse panels will not be able to be carried over garage roofs, fences, hedges etc. 

If you have opted for installation of your playhouse, please ensure a concreted or paved base is provided, which is level and of sufficient size. In the event of the base not being suitable the installers will be required to stack the building on your property and a charge for return will be applied.


We're sorry we can't ship directly to the rest of the world but we are happy to liaise with a UK freight forwarder to arrange delivery overseas. To do this simply enter your freight forwarder's details in the delivery address at checkout. If you have any queries please contact us.

We can also deduct the VAT from our prices if you are a non-EU country.
