It is always a pleasure to hear from our customers who are enjoying their summerhouse, whatever the weather.  Mrs B from Derbyshire has kindly written to us about the new addition to her garden.

“Our beautiful Sun Ray Garden Room has proved to be an outstanding success in more ways than we could have imagined. Prompted by the tented ceiling I dressed the inside slightly over the top, including crystal chandeliers and invited friends to an evening ‘opening’. They came complete with bottles of champagne and it was duly christened, tongue in cheek, as the “Champagne Shack”.

It has made us see that part of the garden in a completely different way now and we use it for everything for everything from coffee stops whilst gardening to lunches, barbecues and contemplative drinks whilst watching the setting sun.

It is probably our favourite place to sit now in the evening, having overtaken our previously favourite spot. Really, any excuse to sit there and look at the garden rather than work in it has proved popular with my husband and certainly does encourage ‘lingering’

We have gradually installed small necessities such as a heater, coffee machine, bottle openers and glasses which encourage us to use it.  With the insulation and heater it is even a lovely place to sit on our frequent snowy days in the Peak District.

I don’t know why we waited so long to have one. I’m also impressed with how well the paintwork and well fitting doors and windows have survived our Derbyshire winters.”

Thank you to Mrs B for supplying these kind words and this atmospheric photo with stunning agapanthus leading up to the Sun Ray Garden Room.
