Scotts of Thrapston is delighted to have three summerhouses on display at The Engine Yard retail village, as part of the Belvoir Castle estate.

As we celebrate our centenary we are thrilled to have a presence in such an historic location. Restored from Victorian buildings, the Engine Yard provides a distinctive selection of shops.  It is open 7 days a week in the heart of the stunning vale of Belvoir.

In celebration of this location, we have created a special Belvoir Blue Burghley summerhouse for the Duchess of Rutland who is acting as an agent for the company.

We recently filmed the Duchess talking about the summerhouses and what they bring to the Engine Yard retail experience.  She said “The thing I love is how beautifully the Scotts summerhouses fit into this location. Everything at The Engine Yard is about outdoor space and there is nothing else on the market that touches the quality, design and style of these amazing buildings.”

We worked closely with the Duchess to create the unique Belvoir Blue paint finish for the 2.4m Burghley summerhouse on display. The family flag features this extraordinary blue and it is very much part of the Belvoir and Engine Yard signage and branding.

The three summerhouse models on display are a 3.9m Sun Ray Garden Room, a 2.2m Newhaven Corner Summerhouse and the 2.4m Burghley.

In the film below, the Duchess of Rutland talks about why she specifically chose Scotts summerhouses for the Engine Yard.
