With a choice of two model sizes, you might find that the 2.2m Newhaven Corner Summer house is an ideal fit for a forgotten corner or underused space in your garden. Crafted using the finest sustainable hardwood, the small Newhaven is finished with smooth-as-silk yet highly durable paint in a choice of exquisite colours.
A summer house is an outdoor structure designed to enhance your garden space. Typically designed in timber, a summer house is flexible to provide a cool, shaded place to retreat from the summer heat, or a cosy hideaway for cooler spring and autumn days. Ideal for use as a craft room, yoga studio or gym, or even as outdoor bar, a summer house provides a unique and beautiful space for an idyllic garden upgrade. You can also add supplementary security and aesthetic features. Choose a glass fibre effect or cedar shingle roof additional windows, or glazed doors to create a light-filled space.
Scotts’ corner summer houses are designed in two sizes. Our Newhaven model is available in 2.2m and 3.0m variations so you can be sure to find the precise size to complement your garden space.
Whatever the season, our luxury summer houses can be enjoyed comfortably all year round enabling you to spend more time relaxing in your own, personal garden paradise. All Scotts summer houses are built with craftsmanship using sustainably sourced hardwood which means they are exceptionally durable and hardwearing. You can view our range of summer house designs, colours, shapes, and sizes here.
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.

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.
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.

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.
