What Is A Rotating Summer House?

Versatile, luxurious and relaxing. These are the three most common ways to describe a timber summerhouse. But, thanks to some ingenious timber engineering and a touch of imagination, the Scotts of Thrapston team can offer you flexible and manoeuvrable summerhouses with rotating bases. A rotating summerhouse gives you the opportunity to capture the stunning warmer days, no matter where your timber summer house sits in your garden.

Initially popularised by the Victorians and advocated for by the eccentric, upper-class and artistic of the 20th century, the rotating summerhouse allows you to face the sun or change the view of your garden throughout the day. The adaptable garden building provides you with an escape from the outside world and gives you the opportunity to own your very own little corner of heaven.

If like the rest of the UK, working from home has become a part of your daily routine, then it could be time to upgrade your kitchen table-turned-office to a timber summerhouse. Unlike spending a small fortune on building an extension on your house, summerhouses won’t typically require planning permission and have a much shorter build time.

Using the finest materials throughout the construction process and drawing inspiration from innovative summerhouse design trends, Scotts garden buildings offer various versatile lifestyle options. The most common of these small, rotating garden rooms is the eye-catching Balmoral Summerhouse. For those with a taste for luxury, our Burghley Summerhouse offers a larger, open space to entertain or relax as well as the option of a rotating base.

For those who are ready to upgrade their land or back garden and build an adaptable space to work, relax or create, a rotating summer house is just the model for you. Presenting an effortless collaboration between nature and home comforts, a rotating summer house can be designed for year-round use and makes the perfect addition to your garden.

Scotts Rotating Summer Houses

Combining innovation with over 100 years of timber experience, Scotts will transform your garden space and with a rotating summerhouse. Our rotating summerhouse bases can be easily fitted to the Balmoral, Baltimore or 2.4m Burghley octagonal buildings and, when installed, are hidden by timber skirting to match your chosen colour finish. Read on for a deeper dive into each luxury summer house.

The Balmoral Summerhouse

Classically styled and perfect for gardens where space is a luxury, the Balmoral Summerhouse is one of the top models featured with a rotating base. This luxury timber summer house model provides shelter for all-year-round use and is perfectly designed to make the most out of the summer rays with its rotating base option.

As standard, the Balmoral Summerhouse comes with a sleek slate-effect glass fibre roof which can also be upgraded to a more natural-looking cedar shingle roof. The timber garden building also incorporates Scotts unique door and window shutter system, adding extra security and privacy to your space. The door and windows are easily removable so you can relax sheltered in the summer breeze and can be reattached once it gets cooler.

The innovative rotating base is impressively hidden by timber skirting upon installation to keep up the classical appearance of the summerhouse. The classic Balmoral summerhouse model is offered in an industrial quality paint finish of your choice and a range of freestanding seating designs can be added for extra comfort and practicality.

The Baltimore Summerhouse

Small yet impactful, the Baltimore Summerhouse is one of Scotts’ most distinctive octagonal summerhouses. This small octagonal summerhouse is the ideal luxury garden building to complement any outdoor setting and is one of the more contemporary designs of the rotating base models.

Manufactured from sustainably-sourced Red Grandis, the Baltimore Summerhouse is built to last and features solid lockable doors and casement-style windows that offer the ultimate garden hideaway. The Baltimore model also features three attractive diamond leaded windows on the rear panels which not only let in the warm summer daylight but also add a stylish addition to your timber garden building.

With the open, octagonal structure and the option rotating base, the Baltimore allows you to enjoy the sun and take in the natural beauty of your garden no matter where it is placed.

The Burghley Summerhouse

Say goodbye to the boring outhouse or shabby common shed with the stylish Burghley Summerhouse. As the largest rotating base model in the Scotts range, the elegant summerhouse is manufactured from Red Grandis and is available in the 2.4m model size.

This large, rotating summer house boasts a pair of secure lockable doors and casement-style windows, with laminated glass and brass or chrome ironmongery which allow for extra security and privacy. As this model is supplied with an industrial quality paint finish and optional freestanding seating, this large garden building can quickly become your own slice of personal heaven.
