Honeypot Snug Wooden Playhouse

"I really can't find fault with the product, timing of delivery or the friendly staff. Delivery was on time, I was informed 30 mins before this lovely snug was delivered. Putting the snug up was straight forward, instructions guided up through and it was great to watch the video before attempting as it made the job a lot easier. I would highly recommend that people buy from this company, they are very helpful and friendly."

Review by: Tracy from Ilkeston.


A truly lovely house my children aged 2 and 4 have loved playing in this house. Looks great in our garden and much nicer than a plastic one! Would definitely recommend

Review by: Erin from Ludlow.

Perfect Little House

We bought this Playhouse for our Granddaughter. She absolutely loves it. She is only nearly two years old, so will have years of fun with it. The quality is very good for the money. Very sturdy and water tight. Highly recommend.

Review by: Ian from Dover.

Great For Toddlers

Ordering was so easy, kept up to date and very quick delivery. The only company that wasn't charging a £50 delivery fee for south west Scotland. Bonus! Delivery driver friendly and helpful. My only draw back was our play house seems a bit warped. Door doesn't close properly and there needs to be some planning to be done to all sides. However, once sorted and erected it looks fantastic. My soon to be 2 year old son loves his man cave. I only wish I knew how to post the video of him seeing it for the first time. Would buy again.

Review by: Suzanne from Saltcoats.

Ideal Playhouse

Very pleased with this playhouse. Delivery prompt. Good solid construction. Easy to assemble. Possible to do so on your own if you have some clamps to hold the sides together while you drill. Three grandchildren managed to have their tea inside around a little table.

Review by: David from Cheltenham.

Gorgeous Little House

Bought this for our 2 year okd sons birthday.He loves it! Painted the house with cuprinol shades 'costal mist' blue and around window frams and roof white.Looks lovely.Myself and my partner built this within 2-3hours. Base isnt that thick so we doubled it up with some extra wood to make it more sturdy. Other than that we are very happy with our purchase! Can fit his table and chairs inside, pinned a black board and little shelf inside for his books.Delivery was quick, driver wasnt able to enter house as we have no side gate so left the house out the front, luckly as its only small it didnt take me long to move through to the garden. All in all a very cute playhouse, I'm sure he will get a good few years of play out of it! Thanks!

We Have A Happy Little Girl

"Bought this as a 3rd birthday preset and my daughter loves it. Relatively easy to put together. Instructions are easy to follow. Took me the best part of an afternoon to do. 2 people needed for some sections."

Review by: James from Stockport.

Love This House.

What a fantastic little house. I did a lot of research into finding this right house for my little girl's birthday and this one was the best and now Its here it's even better. The wood is very sturdy and looks very well built. Took a while to put together (6hours and Sun burnt lol) but soo worth it in the end to see our little girls face light up. I highly recommended this house for anyone.

Review by: victoria from Edenbridge.

Pretty Good, Happy Enough.

Delivery excellent, on time, rang with time on the morning, friendly delivery man. Product pretty good, slight problem with assembly in that one of the vertical lattes on the pre built back panel wasn't quite straight so I had to put the side on at an angle to this to ensure it was straight(I wasn't sure whether to do it the other way, but this way thankfully turned out correct.).However, all in all, a nice little product for the money, I am satisfied with it.thanks

Review by: MATTHEW from Pontefract.


Fantastic product and service and excellent value for money.

Review by: Peter from Bagshot.

Brilliant Buy

"The Snug playhouse is precisely that, snug! But it was a perfect fit for a small corner in our garden and for our girls, who are 5 and 2, it is perfect. There is room for a kitchen, some dolls and both girls and they do love it. I expect they will spend many hours playing in there in the coming years. The product itself was excellent quality and assembly was really easy. We painted all the panels before putting it together and built a base out of paving slabs. Really happy with our purchase."

Review by: Justin from Witney.

Excellent All Round!

"Purchased for my (nearly 2 year-old) daughter. What can I say - she loves it! In fact we cannot get her out of it ! Quality is excellent with only some minor negatives. Could do with some extra floor supports as the three its supplied with allows for some floor flex when daddy (or mummy :-/ ) paints the inside. I doubled up and fitted 6 in total which made for a rock solid base. Fit additional fixings also - particularly around the base. The wood is supplied pressure treated but it would be better not having this as as it makes it difficult to accept your chosen paint\preserver. I used Cuprinol Garden Shades and needed 3 coats in the end to provide a solid coat. Everything else is spot on! You (and your offspring) will not be disappointed!"

Review by: Simon from Derby.

Great Playhouse

Bought for our 2 and a half year old daughter, fast delivery and driver very helpful. Put together easily by my dad which he enjoyed! Good solid structure and great value for money. Daughter and her friends love playing in their little house. Highly recommend!

Review by: Wendy from Olney.


I bought this house for my son he loves it! Easy to put together and paint. Delivered in 2 days would definitely recommend this x

Review by: katy from Barnsley.

Grandchildren Are Thrilled

Ordered 2 of these playhouses for our grandchildren. Delivery service was efficient and reliable. The playhouses are of excellent quality for the price paid and come with all fixings and assembly instructions - took about 3 hours to erect. Very pleased with the result and the children moved in immediately. Many thanks to Waltons and would highly recommend this product.

Review by: John from Fleet.

Lovely Little House

"Beautiful little house , great quality. Easy to put together, very very nice my kids love it. Door great no pinched fingers. Snug no gabs round sidesor roof. Solid stucture . Beautiful"

Review by: debbie from Aldershot.

Neat Little House

Very pleased with service and the house went together ok. Did find that the window frames didn't fit the window too well so had to glue into place rather than screw. That said, our young grandson loves it and the others will too when they come to visit!

Review by: Alan from Near Yeovil.

A Wonderful Playhouse Thank You :-)

Thank you very much for such quick delivery and brilliant service Waltons. The play house is good quality and looks lovely. Thank you very much my children love it :-)

Review by: Kathryn from Leicester.

Excellent Playhouse

This playhouse is a good quality construction and should last for years if properly treated and positioned. The price is very competitive and the delivery on time, only 5 days after placing the order. Highly recommended.

Review by: Steve from Dursley.


Perfect item with great contact and worked with me when they could deliver even though don't normally deliver on that particular day. It came complete with the preservative easy to make and looks gorgeous in the gardejn

Review by: Tracy from Haywards Heath.

Honeypot Playhouse

Lovely little house for my 2 year old grandson he thinks it great. Good quality and easy to put together thanks

Review by: linda from Staffordshire moorlands.

Perfect Playhouse

playhouse arrived on the stated day, painted and put together very easily (about 1 and half hours) instructions were easy to follow more than enough screws and felt, two very happy girls

Review by: Inez from Chard.

Perfect Small Playhouse

We selected this item due to reading previous high ratings / review for our 3yo birthday gift. Space is an issue, therefore, this fitted the bill perfectly. The house is perfectly made and is easy to put together, between 2 people. The quality is very good and of the customer service and delivery I cannot praise Waltons enough. The house does need to be painted once put together, as described. Our little man was more than pleased with it!! We can highly recommend.....

Review by: Gareth from .

Honeypot Wooden Playhouse

"My husband and I have just spent the whole of the weekend staining and building the playhouse. Hard work -especially the optional base! Worth the hard work it looks great and our grandson loves it. The only problem we have is the door doesn't fit well - it is a little small for the opening - however my husband is going to add an additional piece of wood to finish it off. Delivery was good - we had a phone call at 7.30 am to say it would be here within 30 minutes, and it arrived by 8am. Delivery driver was very helpful."

Review by: Karen from Harlow.

A Must For Every Granddaughter

Granddad and Daddy put up this beautiful Playhouse for our beautiful Granddaughter yesterday. It is just so cute and really well made. The delivery was really quick and free too. It is just as, if not better than advertised. Don't both with plastic ones this is far superior.

Review by: Poppy from Rochester.

The instructions are easy to understand and I managed to put it together myself in a few hours, customer service is excellent and delivery very quick, I would recommend this company 100%, for online and telephone orders (very friendly on the phone too)

Review by: dt from shropshire.

Beautiful Little House

I'm really pleased with the Honeypot Snug Playhouse. My two year old daughter loves it. Its just the right size for her and looks very cute in the garden. There were a few rough edges that needed sanding down but other than that it went together very easily. Painted it red and cream before putting it together and it looks just as good as the pictures. Delivery was also very quick.

Review by: Julie from Exmouth.

Good Quality Play House

Took about 3 hrs to assemble single handed. Very good construction and Jr loves it. Would definitely recommend.

Review by: Liam from Havant.

Honeypot Playhouse

Review by: Angela from Northampton.

Good Value

"Looked at many options - was pleased with delivery and quality of the shed ( Just not enough roof felt )"

Review by: nick from Hull.

Superb Product

"I would highly recommend this product. Easy to put together and looks great in the garden. My son loves going in and out and looking through the windows. It didn't take long to assemble either, only a couple of hours (it took me a bit longer to paint though!). The wood is also very good quality and the playhouse is very solid. Excellent buy!"

Review by: Matthew from Coventry.

Wooden Playhouse

Bought Playhouse for 5yr old granddaughter. Great value,delivered earlier than expected would recommend company any time will definately be using them again

Review by: John from Dumbarton.

Lovely Little Wendy House

I would recommend this product. My husband put it together with ease. Service was excellent too!

Review by: Ellen from Ickenham.

Nice Little Playhouse

This playhouse is quite small but ideal for 3-5 year olds. It fits a small circular table, 2 chairs (both from Dunelm Mill) and a little play kitchen quite nicely. The quality overall is good but I feel mine was spoiled by poor quality control. One piece of wood on the side was delivered dangerously splintered and one piece on the back is very rough. There was also a corner piece of wood missing to which the roof joists were to be attached. My husband had to saw and mitre a piece of wood to fit. We are going to have to use wood filler and then sand it to try to make the rough wood safe for the children.We have painted it cream and green as in the picture, which looks niceThe children love it.

Review by: Mrs A from Rossendale.

Excellent Service

I ordered the play house along with portabase and payed for the installation service. It was installed within 2 days of ordering and now looks lovely in my garden. I did not need to do any preparation work for the base as it just sits on the lawn and it also means we will easily be able to move it if we want to. I am now looking to painting and accessorising the play house and I am sure my three year old is going to love it.

Review by: Jeannette from Reading.

Overall Good Quality And Value

"Purchased this for my grandson and travelled some distance to build it for him. Despite the fact that the absence of a necessary block for the rear fascias was highlighted in a customer review in July 2010, this has evidently not been addressed and I had to cut one from a suitable piece of wood before I could fit them. When I got to the final stage of felting the roof I found that the felt was substantially too short. With rain imminent I had to travel some distance to purchase some felt to finish the job. I took up the felt issue with Waltons and was assured that I would be be re-imbursed for the felt and this was done, albeit taking 2 weeks. I also addressed the fascia block issue and, although a offer was made to send me one, no reassurance was forthcoming that the problem had been/ would be rectified. On a positive note, I do think the playhouse was of overall good quality for a reasonable price. The free treatment in a choice of colours is great. It was relatively straightforward to erect and my grandson loved it."

Review by: Ian from Aylesbury.


The house is ok i found that it had a few nails sticking out caused by the making of the house from suppler which could be dangerous for a child but managed to sort it , so check for nails ...other than that im happy and my daughter is ....

Review by: Paul from Bridgend.

Money Welll Spent.

This little playhouse is superb.Simple to assemble and the pieces all fit perfectly.I spent about 5 hours yesterday putting it together and another 5 today painting it,apart from using a lighter blue it looks almost exactly as the picture on here.The door has a 15 mm gap on the handle side so no trapped fingers and they have left it to the parents to fit a suitable latch, one that they can't lock themselves in.I highly recommend .My almost 3 year old daughter loves it to bits.

Review by: hayley from Sheringham.

Lovely Playhouse

Lovely little playhouse, easy to put together. We did have to put some wood either side of the door to stop the rain coming in as the door is 2 small, could also do with a latch to keep the door closed when not being used. Back facia's were a bit tricky, the front ones came with a support block to put behind, but didn't have one for the back so had to put some wood behing the facia's to keep them straight

Review by: Debbie from Launceston.

4 X 4 Snug Playhouse

we brought this for our 2 small daughters, it is perfect. very quick delivery and very good quality. when they outgrow it, we will definatly be getting a new/bigger one from walton.LOVE it x

Review by: elizabeth from Bury St. Edmunds.

Good Buy

The only fault i have found with the house is that the door is too smal and does not close, this could cause an issue during the winter months. We have had to add some wood on and buy a latch to close the door. The playhouse is easy enough to put together as it comes in panels (to my partners relief).

Review by: michelle from Stanley.

So Pleased

Bought this for my children for their birthday and so pleased with it. Once assembled and painted, it looks really lovely in the garden. A great buy and worth every penny.

Review by: Tanya from .

Honeypot Snug Playhouse

After weeks of bad weather over winter my husband finally built the playhouse for my 2-year daughter. It looks great and different compared to the plastic ones available on the market. She absolutely loves it and wants to be out in the garden all the time! My husband also said it was easy to build.

Review by: JOANNE from HOLMFIRTH.

Honey Pot Play House

Really happy with the house and the service provided.It did need some handyman skills to assemble but was worth all the effort. It has gone through this harsh weather and has stayed dry inside.. The finished house is a delight and loved by my grand daughters and visitors to the garden whatever their age! ( I had great fun kitting it out,making the furnishings and buying the teaset!)Iwould have no problem with recommending Waltons, they provide what they advertise

Review by: Linda from Umberleigh.

The Waltons Honeypot Snug Playhouse 4ft x 4ft is a great value children's playhouse. It incorporates excitement, functionality and safety all in one building and is hugely popular with children. The rustic look to the Snug will make your child think they own their own little cottage. The Georgian style windows and pretty flower design on the door add interest to the already quaint Weatherboard or Shiplap tongue and grooved Timber playhouse. Solid sheet roofing and flooring enhance stability.

Safety features include smooth edges and a 12mm gap around the door so your children's little fingers don't get trapped, plus, it is pre-glazed with a fitted window with styrene, as it's a safer alternative to glass.

Please Note: Due to EU safety regulations this playhouse features a gap around the door to prevent children's fingers from becoming trapped. The playhouses do not come pre painted but come pre-treated with a water based timber treatment for protection during transit. To achieve a similar look try using Cuprinol Shades. Suitable for ages 36 months .

Waltons Cheaper Alternatives
Strong OSB Board [Click for more info]

At Waltons we only use OSB board. It's tougher than particle board and will flex rather than snap if a little too much weight is applied.

Some suppliers use particle board which can be fragile and break under too much load, so be careful when assembling.

Walls 12mm T&G [Click for more info]

At Waltons we only use 12mm tongue and groove shiplap for our Playhouses. The traditional design benefits from a chamfered top of the board to improve water run-off and help protect the playhouse from moisture. Shiplap T&G is also stronger than 9mm economy board and will last for years to come.

Some competitors use 9mm matchboard for their cladding, which can be susceptible to warping and "cupping".

Pre Fitted Quality Window [Click for more info]

At Waltons we pre-fit the windows on many of our playhouses so you don't have to worry about assembly. Our styrene windows are fitted within a sash frame to give a much better finish and will keep the styrene firmly in place. Please note our Bramble, Bluebell & Rose playhouses do not have window framing.

Some companies don't frame their windows with a sash on the outside as well as the inside.

Fully Framed Doors [Click for more info]

At Waltons we fully frame the doors on most of our playhouses. This makes the door so much stronger and will help it to keep its shape, so it can stand up to more hours of play. Please note our Rose & Bluebell, the Snug do not have extra door framing

Some companies make doors for the playhouses that are simply braced. This method is fine for occasional use on a shed door. A playhouse door tends to be used more often.

Wide Decking Ladder Rungs [Click for more info]

At Waltons we use grooved material for grip. This gives a solid deeper tread to make sure climbing up and down for hours on end is easy and safe.

Some companies make steep ladder made from framing for their tower playhouse. These thin rungs can be trickier for some young children to climb.

Round Edge Timber [Click for more info]

At Waltons we only use rounded edge and planed timber for the framing in our playhouses. This is much smoother to the touch and can drastically reduce the threat of splinters.

Some companies use rough sawn timber as framing on their playhouses to keep the costs down. These can be very rough to the touch and may cause splinters.
