Corner Summer Houses

Space-saving corner summer houses are designed to deliver an irresistible feature in the heart of your garden. Breathing new life into any location, a corner summer house will turn an underused space into a favourite go-to spot. With elegant proportions and clean lines, choosing a corner summer house will give your garden space a new lease of life.

In recent times we have learned to value and appreciate our outdoor spaces as they help us to re-connect with nature, promote wellbeing, and boost our mood. Gardens are no longer simply outdoor places for summer barbecues. Summer houses are beautifully crafted to offer a year-round setting so you can spend more time outdoors regardless of the weather forecast. Scotts’ summer houses are built with high quality, lasting materials including the finest hardwood that stands up perfectly to the UK climate. Choose a garden building that will complement the scale of your garden, add insulation or more features. Once you have selected the right size for your property, you will delight in choosing exactly the right exterior paint finish as well as deluxe accessories and premium furnishings.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding our Corner Summer Houses

  • Do I need planning permission for my summer house?

    Summer houses and garden buildings are regarded as ‘permitted development’ so they do not usually require planning permission, although some criteria apply. While we cannot provide definitive advice on whether planning permission is required in each individual circumstance, we hope that these guidelines* will assist you.

    *The guidelines are intended to give an overview of regulations which may be subject to changes in legislation. We recommend that you contact your local planning authority for specific advice.

  • What can I use a corner summer house for?

    In recent years, the way we use garden summer houses has consistently changed and evolved. Your summer house represents an extension to your home and can be used for whatever you desire. Depending on the size and location of your summer house, it could be a wonderful place for indulging in your favourite hobbies such as painting, crafting, or keeping fit in your own home gym. It might become your favourite entertaining space or a place to work quietly undisturbed. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

    We offer free-standing seating consisting of self-contained storage boxes upholstered in beautiful fabrics. Alternatively, you can simply arrange your own furniture to create a small summer house that perfectly suits your taste.

    Allow Scotts to help to design the ideal space to bring your vision to life. If you would like some inspiration, take a look at what some of our satisfied customers say. Contact us to start planning your garden summer house project.

  • Where is the ideal location to place a corner summer house?

    Your summer house can be installed in any nook within your garden. Below we look at some of the factors you should consider before making your decision. Think about whether you would like your summer house to be:

    • Located to face the direction of the sun or placed in the shade
    • Close to your property or in a secluded location
      All Scotts’ standard summer houses are over 2.5m in height so they must be installed at least 2m from your boundary to comply with planning regulations. Full details are available here.
    • Facing the garden or your home
    • Fitted with a convenient power supply.
  • Does a corner summer house need a base?

    Summer houses and garden buildings of all sizes require a firm base constructed on a level surface to promote their stability and longevity. You will need to obtain the base plan for your choice of summer house from Scotts before the base is constructed to ensure that the size and dimensions are appropriate.

    Alternatively, Scotts offer an innovative and convenient ground screw base that will provide the perfect support your corner summer house on an uneven surface. Find out more about our ground screw base here.

They also offer double glazing with low E energy-saving glass upon request, enhancing the overall insulation and energy efficiency of the summer houses.
