And finally… Playbnb

A playhouse listed on Airbnb as a joke has been booked by a family of four for a weekend break.

And finally... Playbnb

The 8ft (2.4m) by 6ft (1.8m) house was built by Jason Kneen in his garden in Ludgershall, Wiltshire, during lockdown.

The playhouse was listed on the rentals site at £500 a night, as the family didn’t actually want anyone to book a stay there. 

Mr Kneen said: “I thought the booking was a joke at first but the fact someone’s going to do it is pretty incredible.”

He said the £3,500 playhouse was a full-size recreation of Lottie’s Wooden Doll Treehouse - one the favourite toys of his children Leo, Poppy, Ixia, Rosie and Zebedee.

Marketed as a full-sized version of the toy treehouse, it is described on Airbnb as a “romantic getaway or an adventure with the kids”.

The playhouse sleeps four, has a balcony, slide, ladder and trapdoor and wifi access.

“Lavatory facilities” are available in the neighbouring Tardis - a replica of Doctor Who’s time-travelling machine.
