Great deals on Tower Playhouses
As we review the wooden playhouse market we like to keep our eye out for the best current deals for the wooden playhouse buyer. This week, amid the now familiar scenario of rising prices and falling supply we've found a couple of gems if you're looking for a Tower Wooden Playhouse. Although their prices are usually competitive, Tradepoint aren't generally known for good availability. However this weekend they have the Tulip Tower for sale at the best prices we can find, just£593 for the standalone version and £698 with a super wavy slide. Check it all out on our Tulip Tower page.
And if that's not enough, Garden Street have slashed the price of the Rowlinson Cosy Cottage and you can now pick this quality model up for just £489.99. We think that's just about the best bargain around at the moment!
As always though, we don't think these prices - or the availability - will be around for long in the current climate. So if you're looing for a tower playhouse for your garden we'd recommend you move quickly to take advantage.

Prices on the Rise
As we move further into 2021 we see the range of wooden playhouses available fall and prices continually rise, sometimes by startling amounts, all fuelled by a perfect storm of coronavirus, Brexit, shortage of materials and products and increased demand. It's something we just have to live with at the moment. As usual, we work hard to keep the price and availability details on the site up to date so we can save you hours trawling fruitlessly through the internet looking for a good deal.
One thing we have noticed is that if a model is unavailable it's unlikely to come back into stock at anything other than a significantly increased price. As a result it's questionable if it's advisable to hang around waiting for something to become available again in the hope that it will be priced lower than, or even the same as before. At the moment price movements are a one way street - so if you do see a model which takes your fancy, our best advice is to act quickly while you can still get your hands on it!

Wooden Playhouse Shortages
The coronavirus means wooden playhouse production is significantly reduced and as demand increases with spring we're seeing shortages of models across the board. As a result prices are on the up and we're seeing some playhouses only available at what we consider to be rip-off prices. And there's a double whammy on the way with Brexit. Much of the wood used in wooden playhouse manufacture is imported from Europe and as stocks diminish, difficulties with supply will result in rising prices for raw materials.
The inevitable conclusion is that if you're looking to buy a wooden playhouse it's better to do it sooner rather than later. Even if a manufacturer offers an extended lead time - Tiger Sheds are an example of this - ordering now will have the advantage of fixing the price - and your place in the queue - for the model you want.
None of this is particularly good news - it's just something we have to live with at the moment.

Spring is here..
...and stocks - and sometimes prices - of wooden playhouses are on the rise. We're noticing increased availability of models more or less across the board - so now's a good time to be buying your wooden playhouse for the coming year. And there's no better place to look than The UK Wooden Playhouse Guide, with our comprehensive coverage of the playhouses available nationally online and our extensive price round ups.
One important tip: some retailers offer low headline prices with free delivery - but impose sometimes hefty surcharges for deliveries outwith a specific area (which can be relatively limited). Do bear in mind that the superb headline price you see may not be the final price you pay, especially if nationwide free delivery is not on offer. If a seller tries to impose a delivery surcharge on you, it's worth having a look elsewhere - you might find a better all round deal. We try to list all national sellers on the site - so you don't have to look far!
