What is a garden room?
Architecturally beautiful and finished in natural materials, a Green Retreats garden room is a stand-alone building that’s handcrafted to perfection to provide a stunning addition to your home and garden. What’s more, a garden room is premium insulated for use all year round, allowing you to make the most of your newly added space even in the colder winter months.
Our garden rooms have a wide variety of uses, with anything from a garden office, to a home gym or a simple garden retreat. Garden rooms are a unique and cost-effective alternative to traditional home extensions.

Garden Rooms with Shed/Storage
The practical addition of a partition wall to create a garden room with shed and additional storage is an ever popular decision made by our customers. Quite often, you’ll need somewhere to store the lawnmower, tools, bikes and other bits and bobs so why invest in a shed when you can integrate a shed and storage space into your garden room?
We offer partition walls, internal and external doors plus scaled-back internal finishes to internal spaces used in garden rooms for a shed or storage.

Garden Room Extension
Extending your home can often be expensive and disruptive, but with a garden room extension, this needn't be the case. Our buildings are a cost-effective and hassle-free way to make space at home compared to traditional alternatives, such as adding a conservatory, single-story extension or loft conversion. A garden room building rarely requires planning permission and is installed within 1-5 days.
Garden room extensions are detached from your home which creates a space that is highly versatile and completely private, letting you be free with how you will use yours.
Garden Room Office
Garden room offices are the perfect solution to help work from home. Our buildings are completely detached from the house, making them the perfect space to focus on your work away from the distractions of home.
Keeping your home and work life separate when working from home can be tough, but with a garden room office, you can close the door at the end of the day and leave the office behind you.
Our buildings are fully insulated using premium quality materials and are designed for use all-year-round. Your garden room office is guaranteed to be a warm, dry and comfortable workspace.
Garden Room Bar
Create a space that makes you want to stay in and spend more time at home. A garden room bar is a fun and exciting use of our garden rooms which is sure to be the envy of all of your friends and neighbours.
A garden room bar helps you make use of your garden all-year-round, rather than just enjoying a drink in the garden during the summer. Our buildings are fully insulated for use in any season, meaning you can use your garden room bar come rain or shine! Get away from the day-to-day stresses of home and relax in your garden bar retreat.

Fantastic Room in a little London garden!
We now have an amazing room at the bottom of our garden that fits in beautifully and feels as though it has been there for ever. All the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and the entire process was very straightforward.

Excellent choice of supplier for my Garden Studio! So pleased 🙂
Green Retreats deserve every single one of my star ratings! They have been very professional right from the start, from welcoming me to their warehouse to helping me make the right choice through to a fabulous installation. The finished studio is amazing, a top quality build and the installation teams were timely, polite and very hard-working.
Thanks to you all…what a fab company!!

Fantastic product and service to match
We had a 3.5m by 5m garden room installed last month and we are delighted with the result. We are using it as a home gym and love the extra space it has given us! The building also looks fantastic at the bottom of our garden. Green retreats have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. In summary I have been very impressed by both the product and the service provided by green retreats and highly recommend!
