The width of our Sun Ray Garden Room can easily accommodate activities such as yoga and exercise, as well as providing the perfect setting for a crafting or other hobby. The Sun Ray model can accommodate modular wooden seating and lift the lid on convenient storage. All our sunrooms benefit from stylish casement windows and sleek lockable doors crafted from Red Grandis hardwood and painted to tone in with the exterior finish.
A sunroom is a type of summerhouse with double doors and plenty of space designed to enhance your garden space. Typically designed in timber, a sunroom 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 large sunroom 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’ Sun Ray Garden Room is available in three different sizes up to 4.4m in width, and is eminently suitable as a hobby room, yoga studio or home gym.
Whatever the season, our luxury sunrooms can be enjoyed comfortably all year round enabling you to spend more time relaxing in your own, personal garden paradise. Scotts sunrooms are built with craftsmanship using sustainably sourced hardwood which means they are exceptionally durable and hardwearing. You can view our range here.
In recent years, the way we use sunrooms has consistently changed and evolved. Your sunroom represents an extension to your home and can be used for whatever you desire. Depending on the size and location of your sunroom, it could be a wonderful place for indulging in your favourite hobbies such as painting, crafting, or keeping. It could become an ideal 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 capacious summerhouse that perfectly suits your taste.

Summerhouses, sunrooms, and garden buildings are regarded as ‘permitted development’ so they do not usually require planning permission, however some criteria apply. Although 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.
Sunrooms 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 summerhouse from Scotts before it 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 summerhouse on an uneven surface. Find out more about our ground screw base here.
