Summer houses

A Summer house, just like a garden room,  makes the perfect versatile space for entertainment, relaxation, office garden, or a hobby or craft room.

While the name suggests seasonal use, summerhouses can be enjoyed throughout the year. They offer additional living and relaxation space, as well as storage capacity, and can add personality and character to your garden.

What to think about when considering a Summer House

 

In the UK, summerhouses are generally considered "permitted development," meaning they don't usually require planning permission, although there can be exceptions.

When choosing a summerhouse, factors such as its intended use, available space (considering planning permission requirements), and your budget will guide your decision. Summerhouses come in various sizes, from compact options suitable for small gatherings or personal hobbies (e.g., starting at 1.8m x 1.8m or 6ft x 6ft) to larger structures that can serve as dining or socializing spaces, craft rooms, or workrooms (e.g., up to 5.4m x 6.0m or 18ft x 20ft, and even larger with certain models).

Quality is an important consideration when purchasing a summerhouse. Mass-produced, low-cost options won't offer long-lasting durability, which is why our Summer houses are of a higher quality and designed to withstand the elements using high-quality timber and craftsmanship to ensure protection and longevity. Our Summer houses are constructed by expert carpenters and joiners and can make bespoke if you have specific design preferences. 

 

5 Reasons why you should consider buying a Summer house

It serves as a versatile extension of your home, offering opportunities for relaxation, entertainment, and hobbies. Whether you need a tranquil retreat, a creative studio, or a space for socialising with friends and family, a summer house provides the perfect setting.

2. Embrace Nature Year-Round: With a summer house, you can enjoy the beauty of your garden and the surrounding nature in all seasons. The large windows and glazed doors of a summer house invite abundant natural light and offer breathtaking views, allowing you to connect with the outdoors even during colder months. It becomes a cozy sanctuary where you can witness the changing seasons from the comfort of your own retreat.

3. Flexible Functionality: A summer house can be customized to suit your specific needs and preferences. It can serve multiple purposes, adapting to your evolving lifestyle. Use it as a home office, a gym, an art studio, a playroom, or even a guest house for visiting friends and family. The versatility of a summer house ensures it remains a valuable investment for years to come.

4. Escape Daily Stress: Your back garden summer house can be a peaceful sanctuary where you can escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Stepping into your summer house allows you to create a serene atmosphere, away from distractions, and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul.

5. Enhance Property Value and Appeal: A well-designed and beautifully crafted summer house adds significant value to your property. It becomes an attractive feature that enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of your garden.
