Garden Offices

Garden office buildings are growing in popularity with more and more people making the modern switch to work from home. Garden offices provide the perfect work-life balance solution whilst creating extra space at home.

Our premium quality garden rooms are fully-insulated meaning you will have a warm, dry and comfortable space to work all-year-round. Not at all like a ‘shed office’ or ‘shoffice’, our buildings are built to the same quality, safety and insulation standards as a room in your house. This means you can create a professional and comfortable workspace in the practicality of your home garden.

Adding a garden office building to your garden is a simple and cost-effective process – especially in comparison to other home extension alternatives. Planning permission is generally not required and the buildings are installed by us in just 2-5 days.

Benefits of a garden office


Privacy, peace and quiet is a must when working from home. Our garden rooms are stand-alone buildings detached from your home, meaning your office retreat is away from the distractions of home.


A garden office over a traditional home office offers better work/life balance benefits – letting you physically leave the office behind you at the end of the day and focus on your family when you’re home.


Your commute is cut right down to practically zero when you work from home. Creating office space with a garden office saves you time and money compared to an office commute.

Create Space

Rather than squeezing into a corner of the spare room or taking over the dining table, create a dedicated space to work that also adds value to your home.

Real Case Studies

Take a look at some real customer examples of garden offices and home businesses:


Every garden office building from Green Retreats is designed for use all-year-round. We use premium grade insulation in our walls, roof and floor to ensure that the outside elements are kept at bay and that the internal environment of your garden office is comfortable, dry and healthy. Our complex breathable insulation and vapour barriers stop the risk of damp and condensation. The doors and windows are fitted with industry-leading Pilkington K double-glazing for optimum thermal efficiency. What’s more, we include an oil-filled radiator in the price of every building.

The construction materials and standards we follow are the same as those you would find in a new-build home in the UK, making your garden office as comfortable to use as a room in your house.

The great news is that planning permission is generally not required for garden offices! Garden rooms like ours are classed as ‘outbuildings’, which fall within your permitted development rights. Some properties and areas in the UK don’t have permitted development rights, in which case planning permission would be required. We can help with the planning application process on your behalf should you need it, taking care of the hassle for you.

Our garden buildings make for the perfect home office solution because they are fully insulated to use all-year-round. Our smart breathable insulation keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer, in a healthy space that’s free from moisture build up and condensation. What’s more our buildings come with an oil-filled radiator as standard to help keep you warm in the colder months. Upgrade your heating for wall-mounted radiators, or for complete climate control opt for our air-conditioning option.

They do! Property expert Luke Jackson at Michael Graham Estate Agents said: “we have experienced first-hand the dramatic effect the pandemic has had on house buyers. Now that working from home is so widespread, lists of priorities have changed and home offices are mentioned in the majority of our conversations with prospective buyers. Having a home office in the garden away from the house can now make or break a property deal. People may not be commuting to the office every day but they still like the structure of leaving the house to go to work. A garden room provides that physical and mental distance between home life and work life.”

A garden building from the Green Retreats range of designs are healthy, safe and comfortable spaces to work from all-year-round. Our buildings are breathable, allowing for the transfer of air for a fresh and condensation free workspace. Opening windows are included as standard in the price of every building, including trickle vents and premium double-glazing. We also include an oil-filled radiator in the price of every building, keeping you cosy in the colder months.

Security of your garden room has been considered at every stage of development. Some examples include our insurance grade doors and windows which come as standard on every building, meaning your office equipment can locked away securely at the end of your workday. Our double glazing is premium toughened glass which is able to withstand considerable shock compared to traditional options.

Garden offices from the Green Retreats range of designs are all designed to be used all-year-round. Our complex insulation layers are designed to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter, allowing for the directional transfer of air making the rooms a healthy space to work.

What’s more, every building comes as standard with an oil-filled radiator to help keep you warm in the colder months. We also have optional upgrades of air-conditioning for total climate control.
