Mr & Mrs P, Haslemere
Halcyon offers a full design, build and management service for custom tree houses, play areas, school playground equipment, garden buildings and other unique timber play structures. We offer a maintenance service for all our creations and for other existing tree houses.
Our Workshop, where we create, make and prefabricate is based on the Hampshire / Surrey border in Oakhanger.
Whether it’s a tree house for the kids, a timber area for creative play, or a grown-up hideaway for the ‘child’ in us all, we place the utmost emphasis on communication with our clients.
We ensure that expectations are exceeded and that many happy years of enjoyment are realised.
At Halcyon we strive to make the whole project an enjoyable undertaking for all parties involved. A brief outline of the typical processes involved is detailed below.
If at anytime during the project you have questions or concerns, we encourage you to contact us and these will be dealt with promptly.
Frequently Asked Questions?

Most of our structures do not need planning permission however this will depend largely on what you are hoping to build, its location, its size, the height of the structure and what you intend to use it for. We are very happy to offer advice and guidance and if required act as agents on your behalf during the planning process.
Yes, it is our policy to take a 40% deposit, with a further 30% at the end of the first week. The balance is then paid on completion of the project.
Because of the bespoke nature of all Halcyon creation it is difficult to pin point exactly how much your own structure will cost you but in general our rough price guide is between £400 & £20,000 (we are more than happy to work to fixed budgets). This will also depend on other factors such as:
- Where you live, i.e. your geographical location (to allow for travel and accommodation)
- Ease of access to your property
- Materials used and degree of finishing
- Size of your structure
- Play equipment required
- Whether or not electrical supply is installed
