The Shire Bunny Playhouse offers a classic playhouse design, yet it is formed using modern manufacturing practices.
The tongue and groove wall cladding is strong and hardwearing. The window and door include safety hinges to prevent little fingers from becoming trapped. The window glazing is a safety styrene, which will not shatter like glass when broken.
This Bunny wooden playhouse will be supplied dip-treated and ready to be painted by you (if you wish) in whatever imaginative colour scheme you choose.
Full instructions are provided on delivery, along with any fixtures and fittings required for installation.

Our product specifications are given in good faith but can be subject to manufacturer change without notice. Should an attribute be of essense to your purchase, please feel free to contact us first for confirmation.
The Shire Bunny Playhouse is delivered from central UK stocks by the manufacturer. Shire's own experienced personnel undertake delivery to ensure your goods arrive in a perfect condition.
Shire operate mostly small, flat-bed trucks. If a dustbin lorry can reach your property, Shire should too. Limited access? Please call us prior to ordering to avoid a costly abortive delivery.
Unloading will take place at the kerb-side or your adjacent driveway. Vehicles will not leave the public highway. The driver, at their discretion, may be willing to carry the goods to your garden. Shire will not carry goods through or into your home, therefore you may wish to arrange some extra help privately.
Shire offer a free delivery service within Central and Southern England, as indicated by their red zone on the map below. The above postcode checker will confirm this for you.
Pick A Day Delivery
For products on '7-14 days' delivery located within the majority of Shire's free red zone, during the checkout process you will be offered a calendar which allows you to select a preferred delivery date. Shire will endeavour to deliver on the date you have chosen. You will be promptly notified in the rare event that an alternative date is necessary for logistical reasons. As some distant red zone locations (such as BA postcodes) are serviced on a 2-day (overnight) run, the actual delivery day may vary by +/- 1 day of the date chosen. The following red zone locations are excluded from the Pick A Day service; BB, BD, BH, BL, BS, DH, DL, DT, FY, GU, HG, HR, L, PO, PR, SO, SP, SR, TA, TS and WN. Note: When an installation option has been chosen, a Pick-A-Day selection will not be offered; due to additional, post-order labour scheduling.
Delivery will typically occur within the period quoted on this product. For those products outside the '7-14 days' offer, you will be given the opportunity to chose your delivery date via Shire's online booking portal; a link will be sent by text or email a day or so after order. If a date is not chosen, Shire will notify you in advance by either telephone, text or email to confirm their date of delivery.
Less frequently serviced locations such as those outside Shire's red zone, may be subject to an extended period of up to an additional 7-14 days. These distant locations include North and South-West England, Wales and Scotland.
Installation (Extended Delivery)
When an installation service is chosen the product delivery period will increase by approximately 14-28 days, to accommodate additional labour scheduling. Therefore, a '14 Day' self-assembly delivery will become a '28-42 day' installed order. Once placed, Shire will issue an installation pack by email to explain the standard of supporting base required (concrete, paving etc), to enable installation to proceed. Installation scheduling will only commence once the customer returns the base and access information Shire request, including images of their existing base. A prompt return is advisable to avoid delay.
The only offshore location Shire deliver to is the Isle of Wight; PO30-41. A green zone delivery charge applies to this island.
Shire does not service the following distant onshore locations; Northern Ireland (BT) and Scottish Highlands (IV4+, KW, PA20-78 and PH19-44). These form the yellow zone as shown upon the lower map. All offshore locations are excluded too, examples being; Guernsey (GY), Western Isles (HS), Isle of Man (IM), Jersey (JE), Orkney (KW), Shetland (ZE) and Scottish Islands (PA & PH).
Due to additional Shire zone fees, certain distant locations can only be serviced at a surcharge (at cost). The above post code checker can confirm if a surcharge will apply.
These locations include:
Orange Zone (CF,CH,LA,NP) at £30.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £132.00)
Blue Zone (CA,EX,LD,NE,SY) at £36.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £168.00)
Green Zone (DG,EH,G,KA,LL,ML,PL,PO30-41,SA1-18,TD,TQ) at £48.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £264.00)
Purple Zone (AB,DD,FK,IV1-3,KY,PA1-19,PH1-18,SA19-73,TR) at £78.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £360.00)
This map offers a visual impression of the four surcharge zones. Delivery is free within the central red zone. No delivery service is available to the yellow zone.

The process where the surface of wood is exposed to a preservative by immersion in an open tank or by deluge spray booth. This treatment is common for above ground use.
Shiplap Tongue & Groove
A tongue & groove jointed boarding offering a smooth planed finish. Each upper face is shaped with a shallow curve to offer a shiplap, overlapping appearance.
OSB (Oriented Strand Board)
Oriented Strand Board also known as OSB. Used in the building industry. Layers of wood flakes set within a glue-like resin are compressed into a solid sheet.
Mineralized Roofing Felt
A garden building roofing felt in its commonest form. Coated externally with small stone flakes or grit to deter the effects of weathering.
Styrene, Polycarbonate and Acrylic are terms you may have heard being used for tough, clear plastic, single sheet glazing often used as easy-to-transport alternative to glass. Styrene will not shatter like glass, therefore ideal for playhouses.
A simple, push-to-close door retaining catch. Often used on wooden playhouses as a non-locking safety feature. Style and design may vary by product.

Easy to construct. Good quality materials, except roof felt tacks which are too short to go through more than 1 layer of roofing felt and keep popping out. End product is a very cute, small house.

We purchased this house for pre-school. We are very pleased with it and the children love playing in the house. The only thing we are disappointed with is the window glazing, all of which cracked within the first couple of days of use. If you could send us some replacement we would be very grateful! (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: As a gesture of goodwill towards your post-installation glazing damage, a replacement set of styrene safety glazing is now on its way to you free-of-charge.)

Excellent playhouse! Really good value and great quality. Came flat packed but was fairly simple to construct. 1 small part was unfortunately missing but I emailed and had a phone call back within 10 minutes and the missing part posted out within a couple days, so can't fault the customer service. Overall very happy.

We bought this for my son who is 3. He loves it now it's got carpet in it and some lights. The assembly was a bit tricky and I would have preferred the rebate for the window hinges to have been done prior to delivery. There was one panel which wasn't perfect but it will do.

Good value for money, cute little playhouse. However difficult to put together unless you've done something similar before. And so many pieces which all need to be waterproofed with paint (advising several coats!)

This is a really attractive playhouse. My husband found it easy to assemble in less than a day. The finished product is excellent and offers great value for money. My son is extremely happy with his 3rd birthday present.

Very easy to build. The window lock is made of not very strong material; my lock broke on the first day when my son started to play with it. I am quite pleased with everything else

Door catch was not good so we had to put another one on. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: For EN71 Child Safety a catch must be non-locking to prevent a young child becoming trapped. Playhouse catches therefore take a basic form such as a simple magnetic catch. In this instance a roller catch is used).
