The Cottage Garden Den Kit

I bought this for my 6 year old granddaughter 's 6th birthday, she hasn't received it yet but I am confident she will love it. The quality looks really good and a great gift for wee adventures!

Wonderful present!

To say my 6 year old niece is delighted really is an understatement! Very excited with “my den” as she now calls it. Wonderful customer service. Meli & Ro will certainly be my first port of call for future gifts and will highly recommend. Thank you x

fantastic den kit

I've bought a few den kits over the years and this one is the best, great selection of items and a fantastic bag to use when you eventually get too old for dens.
