Hand Made Places has seen huge growth since it was established in 2000. However over the years we have always maintained our ethos of providing a friendly, personal service in every aspect of producing and installing high quality timber playground equipment and outdoor classrooms. We focus our ideas to create designs which are fresh and relevant before our talented craftspeople start their work on responsibly sourced timber. As our name suggests, we still use traditional construction techniques, hand-finishing every piece of playground equipment.

Thanks to years of experience in producing high quality products which remain competitively priced, we have established ourselves as a trusted supplier of playground equipment for schools, nurseries and children’s centres all over the UK. We also work with town and parish councils, national attractions, and holiday parks, to name but a few.

Outdoor Play & Learning

We not only understand the importance of outdoor play, we celebrate it; children need dedicated time on the playground every day in order to make the most of all its benefits.You can be certain that a Hand Made Places play area has been expertly designed to develop various skills and to deliver an enhanced learning experience. From tactile motor skills to the creativity of pretend play, we provide playground equipment which brings delight to the world of child development.

We also manufacture a range of outdoor classrooms and shelters to encourage outdoor learning at schools. Hand Made Places playground equipment can also be combined with colourful Safety Surfacing and a range of timber playground furniture including benches, tables and fencing. The creative, free-thinking side of playtime should never be lost. That’s why Hand Made Places specialises in creating outdoor play areas which encourage activity, communication and imagination.

Bespoke Playground Equipment

Playground equipment design is a collaborative process. In fact, many of our products are developed directly with our customers’ own ideas in mind. From a child’s sketch to a detailed blueprint, Hand Made Places will design bespoke playground equipment to suit your requirements. Our expert team designs bespoke playgrounds to enhance outdoor areas by creating a rich and stimulating play and learning environment. This service also allows us to provide inclusive and accessible playground equipment where desired. Explore our blogs and case studies to see how just how creative you could get!
