Whatever you have in mind, we’ve put together a list of some of the best summerhouses, taking into consideration a variety of styles and sizes so you can find the perfect fit for you, your garden and your summer plans.

POWER Sheds Summerhouse Shed

This summerhouse from the POWER store has been crafted from a premium Scandinavian timber, making it a sturdy and reliable structure. The corners have also been braced for added strength and there is heavy-duty framing throughout, including the roof and floor, to increase the solidity of the structure.

Fully waterproof with toughened glass windows, this would make for a lovely spot in the warm summer months without the worry that any rain will make its way through should the weather turn less favourable at any time.

Norland Scottie Corner Summer House

If you're looking for a summerhouse with plenty of space so you can work with direct sunlight or simply relax and enjoy the views of your garden, this roomy option from Norland may be the way to go.

The walls have been constructed with 40mm wood, which means they should provide great insulation when the weather is less than ideal.

It's also been built using an interlocking corner jointing system, which means there are no large frames taking up space within the summerhouse itself, nor the need for any nails to keep it together.

All of the windows are double glazed for additional protection from the elements, and the base beams and floor bearers have been pressure treated for extra durability.

Using robust timber throughout, a floor that uses a tongue and groove system will give extra stability.

It has a stylish sloped roof that will help clear water when it rains (you could consider connecting up a rain butt), and features a set of double doors and front-facing windows that will let plenty of sunlight in.

Forest Wooden Garden Summerhouse

This lovely forest green summerhouse may look gentle and elegant but it boasts a robust wooden floor and has been pressure treated to guarantee 15 years of protection against rot.

It has wide opening double doors to let the air in and give you a wide field of view over your outdoor space, with additional windows on each side.

It measures 2.3m x 1.5m, which means this isn't as large as some of the other options but would be a perfect space for the corner of your garden.

National Trust by Crane Garden Buildings Ickworth Summerhouse

Inspired by outbuildings that can be seen across National Trust locations, this summerhouse has been constructed to create a beach house feel.

Measuring 2.4m x 2.4m, there is ample space whether you want to relax or host some afternoon drinks in the shade. The Scandinavian Redwood used to craft this summerhouse is FSC certified and it has a strong timber flooring, but they stress this will still require a sturdy concrete base that you'll have to organise yourself.


Available in a selection of subtle shades, which include Earls Grey, Terrace Green and Wades Lantern, you'll be sure to find something that perfectly suits the look and feel of your garden.
