Why a summerhouse?

A summerhouse is a garden building with its own unique charm.

A place for a peaceful retreat, a getaway. Tucked away in a silent spot, a summerhouse is an ideal addition to your garden if you’re looking for a small and unpretentious space from where you can admire the changing seasons in quiet comfort.

Summerhouses come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They’re perfectly suited as places of quiet reflection, for those rare moments of solitude, for reading, listening to music, or conversation with a friend. A summerhouse can also be a place of entertainment, for larger numbers, and a shelter from the heat of the day or the evening chill.

The right choice of summerhouse will add a charming aesthetic to your outdoor space. The traditional summerhouse is made from wood, with a pitched roof and round or polygonal body, conjuring up flavours of the Victorian folly.

You and visitors to your garden can’t fail to be drawn to the homely charm of a timber summerhouse, with its invitation to withdraw from the world and be still for a while within its aromatic warmth and calm.

As the name suggests, a summerhouse tends to get most of its use during summer, or at least when the weather starts to warm up in spring. But with the right choice of insulation and double glazing, and even the addition of some heating, the summerhouse can easily become a space for year-round enjoyment.

You can choose from a selection of shapes and sizes, from rectangular and corner to the six-sided Windsor summerhouse (ideal for smaller gardens), or the eight or even ten-sided Wraysbury, if you’re after a larger entertainment space.

Chelsea summerhouses:

  • Are hand-built by British craftsmen.
  • Have a long-lasting cedar shingle roof.
  • Come with a 10-year manufacturer’s guarantee.
  • Come with a tongue and groove floor.
  • Can have a lined interior for a clean finish.
  • Can include double-glazing and insulation.
  • Can be installed with paintwork, internal benching, and shelving.

There’s something unbeatable about sitting down in a Chelsea Summerhouse, looking up at the intricate workings of the exposed timbers and then out through the clear glass onto nature outside. You’re inside in the outdoors, protected by timber and glass, immersed in the warmth and natural aromas of the cedar surrounding you.

Kevin Williams - Flintshire

“Thank you to your installation/construction team, who put our building up last week. They were diligent and courteous and considerate, and checked in with us and listened to us when there were any questions about the build. They cheerfully adapted to extra bits of work: building steps, cutting branches from a tree etc, and seemed to get the whole job done very skillfully and efficiently. I am only sorry I was at work and didn't see how the wood all slotted together and how quickly this happened, but I've heard all about it! The garden…”
