A place to play, peek and learn

Watch the world go by

The lucky children at Red Hen Nursery, Lincolnshire enjoy a range of outdoor activities to stimulate the senses and encourage learning. The latest addition to this award winning nursery is the Alfresco Arch Bird Hide.
 The Bird Hide sits proudly on the grounds at Red Hen Nursery, providing a sheltered hideaway for the children to watch the variety of birds and wildlife. Lucy Cooper, Deputy Manager at Red Hen said; “The Bird Hide has become a favourite place for our children at Red Hen. A place to watch the world go by, to sit and have a picnic or sing and tell stories with our friends”.

The Red Hen children aren't the only ones benefiting from our Bird Hides; Woodton Primary School in Norfolk are the proud owners of 'Hush Hides' for the children to enjoy at two of their school sites.

These Arc shaped Bird Hides cost £2,130 inc. vat and do not require planning permission as they are so mobile. The hides arrive flat packed for self assembly. Group builds can be arranged and are encouraged, as the children find it stimulating and fun to work together, building their own bird hide.  Click here to find out more.

New vehicle arc design for wide vehicles

Forget ugly tractor sheds and vehicle ports, look at this stunning vehicle shelter. No planning permission required, a truly mobile vehicle shelter.

The problem with wide vehicles is that once you have backed the vehicle into the Arc, how do you get out? Mark got around this problem by building an 'Arc Wing' on the side. This allows the driver to exit the vehicle arc at the back. Simple, effective, beautiful.

The customer says...
I just wanted to drop you a line to say how FABULOUS I think the Arc is! It is truly beyond my expectations! I think it looks perfect and Mark has done a smashing job. Please convey my thanks and appreciation to him. I can sleep soundly now that the tractor is cosy in her Arc - and just in time too, what with all this wintry weather!"

Woodland owners take shelter

Woodland owners in the UK can bask in the shelter of their woodlands during the milder months, but when it comes to the winter, trees won't provide adequate protection. If woodland owners spend hours in their woodlands all year long, they need a woodland shelter which is a bit more watertight and cosy, to truly make the most of their woodland, all year round, whatever the weather.

But how do you add a practical shelter without hindering the natural beauty of UK woodlands?  There are many ways you can build your own woodland shelter, depending on how handy you are and the resources you have to hand. But if you don't have the time or inclination to build your own woodland shelter, having a shelter
delivered and built for you is a good option.
