This National Trust Peckover Garden Shed
has been installed in the back corner of our customer’s lovely, well-tended garden in Eynsham, Oxfordshire to store their gardening tools inside. As with all of our FSC® certified garden buildings, it was made to order and hand-crafted by the skilled craftsmen and women that work inside our factory at our HQ in Norfolk, before being delivered and installed in our customer's garden by our expert installations team, all of which is included as part of the service we offer.
The National Trust range of Garden Sheds is a lovely range, perfect for serious gardeners with more antiquated tastes, as they have been designed with National Trust property outbuildings in mind. The design of our Peckover Shed is inspired by the outbuilding at Peckover House, a property located in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, which is not too far away from our HQ. At 1.8 x 2.4m, this customer's Peckover is the smallest size we make of this particular building, but it is plenty big enough for the customer to store their items inside. If you would require a bigger size for your garden shed, our Peckover Sheds are also available in sizes 1.8 x 3.0m and 2.4 x 3.0m.
To achieve the Peckover's traditional look, the apex roof has been covered with waterproof, olden-style corrugated sheeting and the windows have been fitted with Georgian-style bars. They also have cast-iron black door furniture as well as vertically sawn timber boards for the external cladding which helps to give the building a more rustic look. Our customer has chosen to coat the exterior timber in the colour Disraeli Green from the National Trust colour palette, which is a pale green that fits very well in its surroundings. There are five other paint colours to choose from in the National Trust range, all of which have been inspired by nature.
It took me a while to decide to place an order and all the people I dealt with in the sales team were very helpful and thorough and answered all my questions. The 2 men who came to put up the lovely Peckover Shed did a very good job. They kept me well informed, were punctual and they were also very pleasant people to deal with.

There are four Garden Sheds in the National Trust range, as well as four Summerhouses, which are designed in the same, traditional manner. For each product sold from this range, a contribution is made to the National Trust to help them conserve the special places they look after.
