A Summerhouse is not just for Summer


Many people take the term Summerhouse at face value, and presume they are only suitable for use during the warmer months. However, getting the right Summerhouse for you means you can enjoy it no matter the time of year!

Wiveton Luxury Summerhouse

Far from being drafty and cold, our Garden Buildings are insulated and lined to a high specification as standard. This, when combined with an electrical pack and heater, makes your outside space as warm and cosy as can be! Many of our customers have even told us that they prefer using their Summerhouse in the winter, snuggling up on an armchair in their summerhouse with some blankets, a good book and a steaming mug of hot chocolate to relax.

We have it on good authority that there is nothing quite like taking a newspaper or book out to a warm summerhouse on a cold, crispy winter morning and enjoying the best of what your garden has to offer.

There is something extremely exciting about decorating your summerhouse for Christmas, creating your own perfect grotto. Not to mention that from this vantage point you will have the perfect view of any garden decorations you may have. If we're lucky enough to have snow, your summerhouse will be transformed into a picturesque iced gingerbread house.

Imagine hanging fairy lights, lighting some candles and enjoying your favourite Christmas tipple while you wait for Santa! If you're planning on spending long periods of time in your summerhouse over autumn and winter, you could even install a small log burner to relax in ultimate style and comfort (just be sure to take the proper safety precautions!). After all what's better than a real wood fire during the festive season?

We've also put together a Winter inspiration board on our Pinterest profile with some of our favourite Wintry things, from genius Garden Shed, Summerhouse and Garden Room ideas to to Christmas dinner inspiration, you'll be spoilt for choice! On the subject of inspiration, have you considered booking a visit to one of our Seven UK Show Centres? Here you can see all the luxury garden buildings we have on offer, not to mention get first hand guidance from a member of our expert team. 

If you want a summerhouse to enjoy all year round but are unsure about planning permission, there's no need to worry. Most of our garden buildings do not require planning permission, but you can find out more in our related article: Planning Permission for Garden Buildings. You can also use our Interactive Tool to find out if your property will require planning permission.

All of our bespoke buildings can be customised to your exact requirements, and are delivered and installed for free by our expert team. If you have any queries and you'd like to get in touch you can either Request a Callback, Contact Us or call us on 01760 444229.
