American Barns & Stables

A popular alternative to traditional Timber Stables, American Barns are an efficient equestrian building accommodating everything under one roof.

The American Barn design makes for a more efficient workplace and provides essential shelter from the elements when mucking out or grooming.

Quality is our top priority. We use only the finest materials and employ skilled craftsmen to ensure durable and long-lasting stables. With our personalized approach, we work closely with you to bring your vision to life.

Beyond functionality, our American Barn Stables are designed to enhance the aesthetics of your property. We take pride in creating beautiful structures that add value to your equestrian estate. Count on us for expert guidance and support throughout the process. We are dedicated to making your experience stress-free, from initial consultations to timely delivery and installation.

Making your Barn a Reality

Planning permission is compulsory for permanent equestrian buildings and stables in the UK, for both commercial and professional use. Advice on presenting your application and handling bureaucracy is part of the Scotts barn building service.

Following an initial consultation, a guideline estimate for your equestrian building will be provided. When agreed, we can provide a full set of drawings to accompany a Planning Application. We can assist with the completion of Planning Application forms, Design and Access Statements and Site Plans. However, for particularly sensitive areas, Scotts may well recommend seeking advice from a Planning Consultant at an early stage of the process. Scotts has worked closely with many Planning Consultants on behalf of our clients.

For further details on how Scotts can assist with your Planning Application, please view the Planning Permission page.

When developing and designing your American Barn, there is a lot to consider at the outset and attention to detail and meticulous planning is of paramount importance. A common mistake is not seeking professional advice and spending enough time at the planning stage. Careful design will ensure your barn is a practical, functional and attractive investment. 

Following an initial consultation, taking into account your main criteria and budget, Scotts will produce a detailed plan for your consideration. 

Many years of equestrian and manufacturing experience have gone into the planning of a Scotts American Barn and our dedicated team are happy to assist on almost any aspect of the design, working with you to get the best performance from your yard.

At this stage, Scotts highly recommend a site visit to make a closer inspection of the proposed location of your barn. 

Scotts American Barns are built to last generations with minimal maintenance, and there are countless examples still in operation after years of hard use.

The barn itself and all of the ancillary structural components are manufactured in our purpose built factory in Thrapston, by our skilled craftsmen using quality materials.

As premier barn builders, we bring unrivalled expertise and passion to craft your perfect American Barn, tailored to your equine needs.

Our manufacturing team is highly experienced and has supplied the equestrian world with unrivalled stabling for over 50 years. 

A dedicated and experienced barn building team is responsible for the final construction of your American Barn. At an agreed date, Scotts will deliver and construct your American Barn and associated buildings onto the pre-prepared site. At this stage, the walls, internal partitions, doors, windows and roof are all brought together to complete the project.

Scotts are able to coordinate with other specialist subcontractors, such as plumbers and electricians, so that the whole site is ready for the horses to move in upon completion. We pride ourselves on an excellent and committed, directly employed, installation team who regularly receive exceptional feedback on their workmanship and professionalism. You can be assured of an American Barn that you and your horses will be proud of.
