Benefits of a Garden Studio


Whatever you use your studio for, being detached from the house, a garden studio is a completely private space for you to focus on your task without disturbing the rest of your household, or them disturbing you!


Due to our superior construction methods, you’ll be able to use your garden studio all year round. Come rain or shine, rest assured you’ll be able to teeter away comfortably in your studio.


A garden studio can be used for a multitude of purposes, from hobbies to music studios and crafting rooms. Sprawl out in your own space and don’t be afraid to make a mess.


Having a private space where you can practice your hobbies in peace can be a great space to help unleash your creativity. Your garden studio will become your creative sanctuary.

Making space at home for your hobby or profession is made easy with a garden studio building. What’s more, our buildings are designed for comfort and quality in any season and any weather.

Each building comes as standard with premium-grade insulation throughout, including industry-leading double-glazing for optimal thermal efficiency. The insulation is cleverly designed to keep the inside of the building warm in colder weather, and reflect heat away in summer. Our complex insulation layers are also breathable, making a dry and healthy studio space for full-time enjoyment.

Green Retreats has a completely separate brand of buildings named Garden Studio!

Garden Studio is the brand name we have given to a range of buildings designed and manufactured by us, but with a couple of scaled-down features – making this range of buildings our most cost-effective.

Any of our buildings from any of our brands can be a garden studio – it’s just the name of this brand too! Visit the website if you are looking for a slightly scaled-back design offering the same great quality.

We include everything needed to get your building up and running within your quoted price – including base installation and VAT. As well as this you will receive a french sliding door set, flooring, plug sockets and much more to get you started as soon as construction finished.

Built to last, our buildings are suited for all year round. Meaning you can exercise at the comfort of your home whether it be rain or shine – no need for trips to the gym in the rain! Completely sealed and insulated just like a room in your home, our products can be used during the freezing winter months, and during the pouring rain.


We’ve worked hard over the years to offer the best quality garden buildings in the UK.

Our company is backed by architecture guru Kevin McCloud, supporting our modern design techniques and environmental credentials.

What’s more, every building from our brands comes with a comprehensive 10-yr guarantee, giving you peace of mind that your investment is a lasting one.

Our customers have also rated us 5 stars on the independent review site Trustpilot – so you know you are in good hands.



Our core Green Retreats range of buildings has 4 designs to choose from with each available in over 70 size configurations! We also have 2 designs from our brand Garden Studio, and 4 more designs from our brand The Garden Office.
With this much choice, we are bound to have the perfect building for you.

Every building is bespoke for each customer with a range of personalisation options included in the price, and even more available as optional extras. All of the essentials are also included in the price to get you started, with no hidden costs at any stage. Find out more about what’s included…

Yes, they are warm enough to use throughout the year as they are all well insulated and come with a wall-mounted radiator as standard.

We do not offer bespoke building options. However, we do offer many different sizes and styles to suit your tastes and budget. You can start to design your building using our visualiser.

We don’t offer a completely soundproof solution for your garden studio. We do, however, offer an acoustic pack which reduces the transfer of sound to approximately -45db – however, this is not ‘soundproof’.
Although we use industry-leading acoustically laminated glass, this is the least effective component of our acoustic pack. Please bear in mind that the more glass you opt for in your garden room, the lesser the effect the acoustic pack will have.

Planning permission is not normally required as our buildings fall under permitted development (built under 2.5m high externally). Most houses, even in conservation areas and areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), have permitted development rights.
Flats and listed buildings have no permitted development rights, so will always need planning permission. Don’t worry though, as planning is a relatively simple process for our garden rooms and we are on-hand to help with this process.

Our garden rooms must be free-standing due to the nature of their construction, meaning we cannot build them as a ‘lean-to’ extension. However, our construction methods mean that we can build as close as 400mm to any solid obstacle, such as your house.

We offer a complete electrical connection from your house to the garden room at an additional cost, which will be confirmed at your design consultation. However, you are more than welcome to use your own preferred electrician for this.

We offer two solutions for internet connectivity.
The first is called ‘Home Plug’: Simply insert one of the plugs into a wall socket and connect the included patch cable into your home router, then insert the other plug into a wall socket in your garden room.
This method sends your internet signal through the power network of your home and replicates your home Wi-Fi in your building.

The second solution is to run a full armoured CAT 6 network cable from the router in your house to the garden building. This will usually follow the same route as your main power cable and we can quote for this at your free design consultation.

The base will normally take between half a day to 1 day to install. The building itself will usually be constructed the following week where we allocate between 1 and 5 days depending on the size. If you require plastering or our acoustic pack then the process will take a couple of weeks longer due to the drying time of the plaster.

Our windows and doors are double-glazed to BS7412 specification and feature tough Pilkington K double-glazing which is both safe and thermally efficient. All windows and doors are fitted with high security (insurance grade) multi-point locks and bolts with a 5-lever locking system.

As a standard, our Green Retreats garden rooms are clad in Scandinavian Redwood, which is maintenance-free. We also offer upgrades to a honey redwood, cedar and composite black cladding. Best of all, you’re able to configure your building to have different cladding on certain elevations.
