A summerhouse is an iconic British addition to any garden. Just think of all the literary masterpieces that have been created by our greatest writers in their summerhouses for a start. A summerhouse is so much more than a dusty shed full of tools, it can be a place for peace, quiet and comfort. Imagine sitting in a comfy chair with a cup of tea, a good book, and the sun streaming onto your face. Pure bliss. Whether you want to create the next great piece of literature or just escape the chaos of the house, a summerhouse has some fantastic benefits. Weather-proof We all know there’s no predicting the good old British weather! A summerhouse lets you enjoy your beautiful garden whatever the weather. Protected from the rain and sheltered from the wind, summerhouses provide a cosy mix of indoors and outdoors, allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds. It can also be a great place to grow some of your more delicate plants and flowers, creating a warm indoor part of your garden where exotic plants can flourish. Extra living space A summerhouse can be whatever you want it to be but it’s basically an extension of your living space. If you want to use it all year round, you can even opt for a fully insulated summerhouse, complete with electricity and lighting. So whether you want your summerhouse to be your little garden office, your reading room or even a playhouse for the children, let your imagination run wild and create your perfect space. Some people go all out and turn their summerhouse into accommodation for their guests, which is a great way to give your visitors their own space. Versatile Summerhouses come in a range of shapes, sizes and colours. You can work around your garden and once in place, you can decorate and furnish your summerhouse to reflect your personal tastes. Go quintessentially English with floral cushions and wicker chairs, or transform your summerhouse into a peaceful meditation room, with colourful throws, artwork and yoga mats. Train some rambling roses, or other climbing plants, up the walls to create a secret hideaway just for you. That’s the beauty of a summerhouse, it can completely reflect your personality, your taste and your lifestyle. It’s a gorgeous garden extension of you.
