How a Summerhouse can create The Perfect Garden Retreat


Summerhouses are the perfect finishing touch to any garden space. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, a summerhouse can be a functional extra room that your house doesn’t allow for. A summerhouse will provide a sanctuary you can relax inside while being surrounded by the beauty of your garden.

Celebrating the age-old love affair between us and the great outdoors, a Summerhouse offers a garden gateway to your very own special place that can be enjoyed year-round, whatever the weather.  You can turn it into a space where you can sit and relax, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It can also be a fantastic space dedicated to work and hobbies. Whether it be your very own sewing room, painting studio, gym or even an office.

With spring now upon us, it is the perfect time to start planning your own garden retreat. We’ve put together some great ideas to help you get inspired. 


The Perfect Garden Hideaway

 A Summerhouse can be placed right in the midst of nature so can benefit your mental health and wellbeing. Take some time after a long day to reflect in the natural world by relaxing in a Summerhouse garden hideaway. Whether it’s unwinding with a book, listening to the birds and insects, or practicing mindfulness. All of these calming activities amongst nature can help you find peace and joy.



Work From Home

A Summerhouse is ideal for those who work from home. Why not create a space that makes you look forward to work every morning? From calming pastel colours and traditional accessories, the opportunities to make your garden office your own are endless. Perhaps you want to give it a breath of fresh air with a mix of modern.



Get Creative

If you want a dedicated space to indulge in your favourite hobby, but are running low on space in your house, a summerhouse can be an ideal solution. Turn your summerhouse into a hobby room, using it to write, draw or paint your landscapes, plants or animals and really connect with nature. All of these things combine creativity with your natural environment which can help create an emotional connection to nature.




Outdoor Dining

Another way to enjoy your outside space is to “dine alfresco”. Good health and celebrating good times with loved ones are lifess essential luxuries so eating outside with family or friends can have a positive impact. British weather doesn’t always allow that so a summerhouse gives the feeling of eating outdoors but being indoors.



Home Gym

Exercise has always been recommended to not only improve our physical health, but also our mental health. So why not exercise amongst nature with a view! Home workout spaces are becoming an increasingly popular alternative for those who like to exercise, but don’t find the gym to be the best environment for them.


Outdoor Library

Bookworms all over will appreciate this idea! If you’re running out of space for your books in your home, or your other half simply says ‘no more books!’ Why not branch out into the garden? With an insulated garden building that has electrics and the opportunity to install a heater inside, there could be no more perfect room to indulge in a good book in.
