Do I Have The Right Garden For A Summer House?

Whether you need a cosy corner to relax after a hard day’s work or you want to create a space to spend time with your loved ones, a garden summerhouse can offer you the sanctuary you need. A beautiful and secure timber summerhouse has the versatility to be transformed for almost any use, no matter how big or small your garden may be.

What better place to read, relax, create or simply enjoy a personal sanctuary than in the safety of your garden? Scotts’ luxury summer houses and garden rooms can instantly enhance the design and functionality of a garden, not to mention provide additional space to expand into. But what if your garden is barely big enough to build a birdhouse in? Or perhaps you have too much space that you don’t even know where to begin? Either way, it’s no problem.

Believe it or not, timber summerhouses come in an array of shapes and sizes. From the more traditional shapes and sized timber summer houses to more outgoing shapes such as octagonal or corner summerhouses, there is a shape or size to suit everyone.

With some careful planning, a splash of inspiration and some help from our professional summer house designers, you can also use your summer house to dramatically change the look and feel of your garden no matter the size. By working with an experienced team like Scotts of Thrapston, you can ensure that the entire process, from design to construction, will be handled for you.

To help you build a miniature haven in your small garden or to create a stunning centrepiece for your big back garden, here are a few luxury summer house ideas for different garden layouts.

Summerhouses For Large Gardens

For most of us, our garden is a beloved extension of our homes and provides an ideal sanctuary from the rest of the world. The addition of a larger summerhouse can then, in essence, become an extension of your home too. A large luxury summer house can be a hideaway for grown-up guests, allowing you to leave the children to play in the garden without a care, or even double up as an extra family room or home office.

The Sun Ray Garden Room

For those who have the extra outdoor space that allows for entertaining guests, al fresco dining and more, Scotts’ larger, classically-designed Sun Ray Garden Room is the perfect option for you. Manufactured from the best quality hardwood timber and supplied with an industrial quality paint finish, the large Sun Ray Garden Room offers a beautiful solution for enjoying the warm summer days and entertaining in the evenings. Our spacious Sun Ray Garden Room is the ideal modern summer house for families and friends to relax and spend quality time together.

Supplied in three sizes, this luxury garden room comes with a pair of lockable doors and casement-style windows, with laminated glass and brass or chrome ironmongery for additional security. To enjoy this stunning room all year round, the addition of double glazing and insulation can be included for an additional cost.

Summerhouses For Small Gardens

Even the smallest of gardens can be transformed into a corner of heaven with a little luxury in the form of a small summerhouse. Our timber corner summer houses, for example, are designed specifically for small gardens where space isn’t something that is easily accessible. With careful planning, you can have a corner garden room that has enough space for a couple of comfy chairs and even a small table to enjoy a pot of tea and cakes or even that special bottle of wine that you have been saving for a summer’s evening.

The Newhaven Corner Summerhouse

Designed to fit cosily into a corner of your little garden sanctuary, our Newhaven Corner Summer house range is great for the quainter of gardens. Designed with the windows facing out into the garden, the Newhaven corner summerhouse allows you to relax and enjoy the views whilst also filling that empty corner of your garden.

A corner garden room is great for smaller spaces as they sit so snugly into the corner of your outdoor space while still giving you a good amount of space to walk around. This neat and stylish timber summerhouse is supplied with large casement windows and lockable doors with laminated glass that can be fitted with either brass or chrome ironmongery. The 2.2m purpose-built summer house features a classic slate-effect glass fibre roof, which can be upgraded to a cedar shingle roof for an additional cost.
