Every horse owner naturally has different requirements and if you are looking to buy new stables you can rely on the many years of experience at Scotts to supply the ideal timber stables to match your specific needs.

Bespoke timber stable specialists

Generally recognised as the leaders in the timber stables market, the Scotts philosophy is very simple:

  • Understand the customer's exact stabling requirements
  • Manufacture and build to the highest possible standards within the budget
  • Offer an unparalleled level of customer service

When you decide to build new timber stables, it is reassuring to know that Scotts will be on hand at every stage throughout the process to ensure you and the horses get exactly what is needed. Scotts recognises that stables are a major investment and want to make the process as simple and stress free as possible. When you choose to buy your new timber stables, American barn or equestrian buildings from Scotts of Thrapston, they will assist with the following:

Planning Permission for your timber stables

Planning permission is invariably required for most stable yards, however small or large, and advice on presenting your application and handling the bureaucracy is part of the Scotts service. For further details on how Scotts can assist with your planning application, please view our Planning Permission web page.

Design of your new timber stable yard

After an initial consultation, Scotts will assist you in careful positioning of loose boxes, tack rooms, feed rooms, haystores and all equestrian buildings, along with siting of access paths and the overall orientation of the stables. Careful and sympathetic design will ensure the timber stables blend in with existing buildings and surroundings, thus adding value to your property.

Personalisation of your stables is also easily attainable by working with Scotts. Clock towers, clocks and weather vanes all add interest to the timber stables and architectural features such as aged oak posts or hipped roofs can complete a stable yard design which is uniquely yours.

Manufacture of your stable block

The stables, equestrian buildings or American barn, and all of their ancillary structural components, are manufactured in Scotts' purpose built factory in Thrapston. Skilled craftsmen use high quality materials at every stage of manufacture, providing you with timber stables that last for decades, with the minimum of maintenance.

Construction of Scotts timber stables

Scotts loose boxes are manufactured in sections, from vacuum pressure impregnated European Redwood, which are bolted together and can be dismantled and re-erected if necessary. Scotts own dedicated installation team is responsible for the final construction of your timber stables. At an agreed date and time, the stables will be delivered and they will be built onto the prepared base. Scotts is happy to co-ordinate with specialist contractors, e.g. plumbers and electricians, so that the whole site is ready for the horses to move in, upon completion.


An all inclusive Scotts guarantee covers all the workmanship and materials for a 12 month period and there will always be a member of the stables team available to deal with any queries.
