Summerhouses; A Retreat For All Seasons

For us here at Crane Garden Buildings, a garden is a place to seek sanctuary and to immerse yourself within the surrounding nature, whether that is admiring small birds busying themselves among the bushes, listening to the bees humming through a bed of wildflowers or even taking in a simple sunrise with your morning coffee. Big or small, the garden should be a place of enjoyment and relaxation away from the stresses of household life.

That is why we offer traditional garden buildings that can be enjoyed all year-round, whatever the weather. Our selection of FSC® certified Scandinavian Redwood timber Summerhouses are available in a range of different sizes and styles to cater for your individual requirements and style aspirations. Whether you’re looking for a seasonal spot for reading and enjoying summer barbecues, or you want an insulated summerhouse from which to pursue hobbies and interests, our timber garden buildings can cater to your desires.

As for customisation, our luxury Summerhouses can reflect your personal style both inside and out. We offer an extensive range of exterior paint shades including a Farrow & Ball palette and colour-matching service, as well as internal paint options for our solid pine lining. There is a range of flooring options to choose from, with our engineered flooring boasting a selection of four different colours from the contemporary Copenhagen shade through to the classical Heritage Oak.

Are you thinking about buying a high-quality summerhouse, but worried it will stand unused all winter? We can offer inspiration as to how to make the most of your garden building throughout the colder months. With our insulation, double glazing, solid pine lining and electrical pack options, you can use this extra garden space to entertain and host throughout the festive season, or to create a space of your very own for self-indulgent evenings with your favourite tipple and a good read.

For those with tricky plots or limited space, our Weybourne Summerhouse is the perfect solution to any space struggles, while our Cley Summerhouse offers rural romance with an elegant hipped roof. The Wiveton model provides 180º views of your surroundings and our National Trust range offers something truly unique for those seeking timeless tradition.

We warmly invite you to admire our collection for yourself at one of our UK show centres.
