Providing the perfect HQ for Autumnal exploring and play, the Little World Play Den from Timberman&Co is inspired by Scandi outdoor living. Built to last with a combination of responsibly sourced (FSC) rustic felled timber posts and and feather-edged cladding, pitched timber roof, hanging slate chalk sign and open shelving – perfect to home all their foraged finds. Each product is made to order to suit each individual space – the most popular size is 1m x 1.5m.
Log Cabin Hideaway (starting from £899) and Little Hideaway (starting from £699) – let their imagination’s run free with a cosy outdoor hideaway that provides the ideal base for endless childhood games.

Built using a range of locally sourced rustic timbers, chunky wooden legs raise the hideaways into a canopy of nature with felled timber posts individually hand-notched together to create a solid space to escape. Rustic feather-edged cladding forms a perfectly pitched apex roof. Sizes start from 1m x 1.8m.
Outdoor Living Space (starting from £1,200) – families in the UK have spent more time outdoors this year than ever before but the onset of Autumn doesn’t mean that has to end. Offering shelter from the elements and a versatile rustic backdrop – outdoor living spaces from Timberman&Co provide a blank canvas to embrace life outside. From wood burners, lights and cosy blankets to pared back minimalism, create your own outdoor retreat to eat, socialise and relax this Autumn whilst appreciating everything the season has to offer. Made to order, designed and installed to compliment nature and your surroundings, not impose, Outdoor Living Spaces are built from a range of hard and soft wood (budget dependent). Responsibly sourced felled timber posts create an impressive frame with feather-edged cladded walls and rustic beams individually notched and braced to support a farm-style pitched roof. Statement fixings and hand-made timber plugs produce high-end results. Integrated flooring is optional using reclaimed or new timbers.
