The Malvern Playden offers the smallest playhouse in the range at 6ft x 4ft and is best suited to young children. It has all of the safety features incorporated in the larger models including ledged doors with piano style hinges which leave a gap when shut to prevent trapped fingers. The Playden also includes rounded edge framing, acrylic Georgian windows and magnetic catches.
The Malvern Playden is the perfect small playhouse for your children - giving your children a fun space to play and relax in!
At GBC, we are continuously striving to improve our products, methods and materials, which means we may change the specification of a product or range from time to time, but we will not make any significant changes without your agreement
Choice of Timber Cladding
The Redwood cladding is pre-treated with a water based preservative inside and out before it leaves the factory.
Malvern Playhouses are supplied as standard with a red or green colour felt roof.
Safety features included on all Malvern Playhouses:
12-Month Workmanship Guarantee
All buildings are fully guaranteed to be free from defects and faulty installation for a period of 12 months.
All our Redwood timber buildings include a 2-year guarantee against rot and decay.
|Ridge Height||Eaves Height||Glazing|
Installation by our own skilled fitters onto a suitably prepared base (not included).
Pressure treated, rot-proof floor bearers create an air-gap between your building and the floor, helping to prevent damp from the ground getting to the building.
Highlight fascias and window frames with a yellow, blue, pink, red or green paint pack.
Add a chimney to the roof of your playhouse for a lovely cottage style.
Extra Side Windows
Add an additional side windows to your building for more natural light.
This is the smallest of our playhouses but still has all the safety features you should expect in a child's playhouse. Two longline windows glazed with acrylic plastic provide plenty of light and enable you to keep an eye on the kids while they are playing.
In common with the other playhouses in our range, the Playden is available with red, green, yellow, blue, pink, or plain highlights.
Each Playden can be professionally installed by Malvern's own teams of skilled fitters on the same day as delivery is made ( if the installation option is chosen )
We display our Playhouse range at all of our branches throughout the UK and this 'nest' of Playhouses is at our Milton Keynes branch.
You'll see various colour options shown on the different buildings :
Playden in the foreground with Pink highlights
Superden on the RH with blue highlights
Lodge on the LH side with red highlights
Playhouse at the back with yellow highlights
To add a bit of a zing to your choice from our play range, whether it be the Lodge, Playhouse, Playden or Superden, you can specify coloured highlights from our range of 5 hard wearing colours.
The Lodge and Superden will be supplied with the verandah railings painted in colour too ... an innovation for 2016.
Safety inspectors insisted that Malvern playhouse doors were fitted with magnetic catches so that all a child has to do to get out is push rather than turn a handle or knob. We took their advice as you would expect! The door has a neat circular handle on the outside which is easy for small children to grasp.
The 43mm x 33mm framework used in the Malvern playhouse range is sanded to a smooth finish to prevent splinters. Shown here where the sides meet the roof, you'll see that the roof is made from real timber rather than chipboard or pressed fibre board. This has important benefits if damp somehow gets into the roof at a later date since real timber won't swell and disintegrate.
Our playhouses are constructed with Deal ( Pine ) tongued and grooved cladding. The surface of this is planed smooth and each board fits neatly into the next. Before the building leaves the factory each panel is given a wash of a quality wood preservative which protects it against rot and insect attack. The process allows the preservative to get between the boards and into the end grain of the timber ensuring that all surfaces are coated.
The bargeboards on the Malvern playhouse range are neatly rounded for safety. The windows are glazed with acrylic plastic. Pictured here on The Lodge, the principle is exactly the same with the Playden.
You may think this rather elementary but compare our buildings with other manufacturers' buildings and you'll see how much better thought out they are.

All of our children’s playhouses will be delivered by our own expert team of fitters. We take pride in making sure that your building will arrive in perfect condition. As with all of our garden buildings, we like to provide our customers with a suitable delivery time. We always give good notice of our arrival date, allowing you to be sure it is the right time for you. We always appreciate any helpful information regarding access to your pre-prepared base area and any details you may need to share with us about reaching you - so that the delivery process can run as smoothly as possible.
Our Playhouses all come with the option of installation. If you are thinking about having your playhouse installed by our skilled team of fitters, please be aware that you will need to have a good, strong, level base, pre-prepared prior to your delivery date. We would normally recommend a base constructed from either slabs, concrete or heavy duty decking. We will always confirm these details with you at point of order. These measures ensure that your playhouse will be both delivered and installed without any inconvenience.
Our delivery times can vary from season to season. All of our buildings are made to order, so during the busy spring to summer seasons, this may increase depending on the building that you have purchased. Please feel free to contact us on 0800 999 0123 to check our current delivery times.
