Hear it straight from our customers


Scotts of Thrapston were professional, helpful and a pleasure to deal with from the start. Customer service is excellent and the order and delivery process very efficient. We are delighted with our Cosy Nook, the build quality is fantastic, so it is very good value for money. And, the design is just beautiful, with attention to detail such as the little bevelled glass windows and potting shelf just adding to its charm and making it that little bit different. Plus there’s ample space for garden tools, storage etc

We have been remodelling our garden and now the Cosy Nook is assembled and in place, it just makes the space into a wonderful cosy (dare I say it) attractive and very usable corner of the garden – and everyone who has seen it agrees. So really delighted, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend – again a huge thank you to all involved!”

We are delighted with our summerhouse and it fits in really well.

We had an end of the summer BBQ on Sunday and everyone was extremely impressed with the summerhouse.”

Just to let you know how thrilled we are with our garden room. It is absolutely beautiful. The workman that erected it were helpful and efficient and I cannot fault the workmanship.

I have already adorned it with various pieces of garden paraphernalia and it is my little bit of heaven. Thank you for all your help and I feel like the cat that’s got the cream!”

We are delighted with the summerhouse and the installers from Scotts were very good.

Once we have finished all the work in the garden it will look even more stunning.”

Some images of my gorgeous Sun Ray Garden Room.

It fits perfectly into the surrounding landscape, and the views towards the Perthshire hills are spectacular. Thank you for your excellent service from start to finish.”

We bought a Balmoral last year and it has been a TOTAL success! The photo shows the summerhouse and its surroundings. Considering it has been in-situ only a little over a year it has fitted in perfectly.

n fact the only issue is that it is more than a little difficult to get my mother out of it – she tends to do a little gardening and then retire to her favourite seat with a good book. I can only say a huge thank you for a brilliant product and excellent customer service.”

Our new summerhouse is lovely and we are enjoying it very much. We love coming home from work and having a relaxing cup of tea (or glass of wine) in the summerhouse. It is so lovely to sit and get away from everything in there.

It is also near the bird table and they haven’t yet noticed we are in there, so we are getting brilliant close views of the wildlife! The Scotts of Thrapston chaps who came and put it up were very helpful and efficient. Thanks to all concerned and here’s to many happy hours in our ‘posh’ new summerhouse.”

I am writing to let you know how thrilled we are with our new summerhouse. The quality is excellent and has been much admired by friends and family. (Our granddaughter, aged 2, is especially pleased with her “house”)

Everything, from ordering at Harrogate Flower Show through to the delivery and erection on site by your competent and lovely fitters, has been thoroughly professional and a credit to your company. With many thanks.”

Mrs and Mrs R
One year on and still loving our Scotts revolving summerhouse.

The ideal spot for a late afternoon glass of fizz with a couple of friends! They all want one and we are so proud of it!”

Mrs W
Well, the delightful installers have now gone leaving behind the most beautiful Sun Ray Garden room imaginable. I just love it. The whole project has gone without a hitch. The quality of the joinery is excellent, the attention to detail is impressive and the colour we have chosen is perfect for the situation. It is all that I imagined and more. I can’t wait to add our own personal details.

Thank you for all your help and I must also commend Mark and Arthur for their skilful and cheerful help. They were a pleasure to have.”

Mrs B
A quick note to say how delighted we are with our Garden Room. The two guys that did the installation were brilliant, efficient and a delight to have around.

The quality of the final product far exceeds anything else we saw from your competitors when we were doing our research, and the room has had regular use over the last few weeks. Thank you for all your help”

Mr and Mrs B
Just to say that we are delighted with the new summerhouse and the men erecting it were most courteous and efficient.

Thank you for all your help.”

Mr and Mrs P
Just over a month ago we took delivery of our ‘Baltimore’ Summerhouse, and have really enjoyed it virtually every day since then; perhaps escaping for an afternoon cuppa, possibly savouring a glass of wine as the evening sun picks out our beautiful Northumbrian view, or maybe just chatting with friends- whatever- it’s a wonderful retreat!

Yesterday the temperature was stubbornly set to 12 degrees centigrade with a stiff northerly breeze blowing away the remains of the best summer in recent years: yet within the summerhouse the warmth lingered on. My wife is delighted with her birthday present, and we would like to thank you and the staff at Scotts of Thrapston for all your care and meticulous attention to detail which makes your summerhouses so special.”

Mr Mc
We wanted to tell you how pleased we are with our summerhouse and thank you for your first class service and attention.

Everything went very smoothly and your installation team were very efficient. The summerhouse sits lovely in our garden.”

Mr and Mrs S
We are using the summerhouse in a variety of ways – sitting and reading, entertaining friends with a glass of Pimms and it is a big hit with the grandchildren.

The seating system is also useful for storing garden games.”

Mr R
Just to say I am thrilled to bits with my summerhouse and was most impressed that your men were so early.

Thank you very much indeed.”

Mrs J
We are pleased with our summerhouse and are currently enjoying these balmy summer evenings sitting in the summerhouse and enjoying the garden with a glass of wine of two!

The guys who erected the summerhouse did a great job.”

Just to let you know that your lovely chaps have just left and my Summer House is gorgeous and I’m really delighted with it.

Your chaps were very nice indeed, extremely efficient and got the work done in a couple of hours. Thank you.”

Mrs C
Your team installed our Baltimore summerhouse this morning. We are thrilled to bits with it – our morning coffee was enjoyed in cosy comfort as the rain poured down outside and afternoon tea was a delight as the sun streamed in through the open doors.

Everything is top quality, the installation team were courteous, careful and efficient and Kathryn in the office answered our queries promptly and patiently at the time of ordering. Delivery was on schedule too. So thank you all for a splendid effort!”

Mr and Mrs W
Just to say we are thrilled with our Baltimore – the men did a great job in the drizzly rain.

Thank you again, and to your company.”

Mr and Mrs G
Just a note to thank you very much for arranging my purchase of the Burghley summerhouse which you delivered and erected last Wednesday. Your service by phone and email during the weeks since ordering has been first-class.

The weather this week’s been great and we’ve enjoyed our new garden retreat several times already. Thank you for ensuring that everything went smoothly.”

Mr W
East Sussex
I wanted to let you know how delighted my mother is with the summerhouse. Having been ill for the last few months, my mother is now reinvigorated and full of the joys of spring as a result of being able to admire her garden from the summerhouse.

We dealt with Kathryn Morris who made the entire process of selecting, purchasing and arranging delivery of the summerhouse a pleasure.”

Mr H
Just to let you know that your men have installed the summerhouse without any problems. It looks lovely and Mum is delighted with it.

Many thanks for your help.”

I would just like to express my thanks for the execution of this order.

It was a pleasure to speak with someone who knew exactly what I was talking about and gave clear information about payment and delivery. Well done!”

Mrs F
We absolutely love our summer house and have used it most evenings this year as a place to unwind after a stressful day at work.

Many thanks to the team at Scotts for the excellent service.”

Mr and Mrs S
Just a short note to say how delighted we are with the Baltimore Summerhouse that was delivered and built yesterday.”
Mr and Mrs M
The Writers Retreat is fantastic ~ I am thrilled with it. Thank you very much for the efficient and trouble free way everything happened.

I should be very grateful if you could thank the delightful young men who assembled it so beautifully, they did a great job.”

Mr and Mrs B
Just to say a big thankyou for the very efficient way you carried out your business and arranged for delivery of my summerhouse. The lads who came were very pleasant and efficient and the Newhaven Cornerhouse has been much admired by all.”
We put power into the summer house so we can have heat, light, music and, at the moment cool air.

It’s lovely – and we even had champagne there on Christmas day and dug our way through the snow to drink hot chocolate earlier this year.”

Mrs H
We absolutely love our summerhouse.

Thank you so much for sorting everything out for us, including the ceiling canopy which is the perfect finish.”

Mrs D

We’ve now owned our Scotts summerhouse for a few months and I thought you might be interested to see some pictures of how it looks now.

We are both really pleased with our summerhouse and have made good use of it in this damp summer.”

Mrs S
Milton Keynes
Thank you for our Garden Room. After the hot summer we have had we have spent endless hours in it – after cooling off in the swimming pool. It makes a wonderful changing room.”
I am delighted with my summerhouse, I enjoy using it most days.

A friend was so impressed, she has just bought one for her own garden.”

Mrs W
I live in an old cottage by a village pond – quite a setting for your summerhouse. Everyone admires it and it makes a great waiting room as I can revolve it out of the sun in the summer and into it in winter.

I love my summerhouse – Thank You.”

Mrs T
West Sussex
Thank you so much for the excellent service and the friendly manner in which you have dealt with all my queries.

I am delighted with the “Wine House” erected in my garden yesterday and would also like to take this opportunity of mentioning how pleasant and hardworking your fitters were. They were a good advertisement for your company.”

Mrs B
I just wanted to express my pleasure in having dealt with a most helpful company right from my initial talks with the office through to dealing with the site erectors.

I feel that the service and the product should not go unpraised.”

Mrs M
We are very happy with the final result and look forward to happy times using it!”
Mrs L
We have really customised our little room in our garden. We have added fairy lights so that it lights up at night and a heater for the cooler days. We use it all the time.”]
Thank you to everyone at Scotts for our summerhouse.

Everyone has been so helpful and friendly and the men who came to put up the building are a credit to your company.”

The revolving base is such a good idea and our grandchildren have great fun with the lounger insert.”
Mrs L
We love the gazebo

We have never enjoyed our garden so much – even in the late Autumn and early Spring. Thank You.”

Mrs S
Although it’s only been in place for a couple of months, it seems to have been there for ever, and we thought you might like a couple of pictures of one of your most successful sales ever!

Thanks for all your help earlier this year.”
