Welcome To Castles By Design

Sean James designs wooden toy castles / playhouses for clients all over England and the UK. These are not just any kids castles though, they are hand-built wooden outdoor medieval play castles on a scale and to a quality of which you will find no better. Our signature is in our attention to detail, quality of material, workmanship and passion for the work.

Sean James' completely bespoke wooden forts are individually designed and crafted to fit seamlessly into your garden area. You can rest assured that when you embark on this adventure with us, you will end up with something truly unique.

The process would involve Sean coming round for a free consultation, he would then put plans to paper based on your wishes - you choose how many turrets, draw-bridges, slides, climbing walls and other exciting features you would like in your toy castle / playhouse. Once the project starts Sean would be there every day in a hands-on capacity with his team of skilled master craftsmen to ensure the highest levels of workmanship and to oversee the project. Once the project is completed, Sean always returns a week later (as part of his comprehensive aftercare service) to make any minor adjustments and to make sure you are completely happy with your castle. Should anything arise, you are completely covered through a 5 year guarantee policy.

We now do a range of very impressive fortress towers which start from £3,500. The castle shown in the above slideshow with full armoury, trap doors, tunnels and hand-made leather is £9,000.
