Insulated Garden Rooms

There’s no doubt about it… Winter has well and truly arrived, so you might be wondering “Do Green Retreats go into hibernation during the colder months?” Because who wants a think about their garden in this weather, right?

Well as much as some of us might want the rest, we’re busy all-year round and Winter is no exception! Whether you’re looking for a space for an office, studio, kids den or your very own relaxation pod, you’ll certainly be wanting to use it 365 days a year. Green Retreats provide the ideal solution, fully insulated garden rooms that are cool in the summer and warm in the Winter. Not just “posh sheds” Alan Titchmarsh, Love Your Garden, ITV (thanks Alan).



Green Retreats strive to provide the very best insulated garden room product on the market on every level, from construction through to customer service, ultimately ensuring that you are left with a space that’s perfect for you, your style and needs. Take a look at our gallery for more inspiration for your garden room project.

Our insulation

We use industry leading suppliers for our insulation materials and double-glazing to ensure your garden room has excellent thermal retention. The floor and roof panels are packed full with the highest quality high-density polyurethane insulation, sandwiched between steel on either side and the walls are combination of of internal melamine, a dense section of Rockwool, a layer of Photonwrap and your choice of outer cladding. The doors and windows are fitted with Pilkington K™ Optiwhite double glazing, which you’ll find on almost all new build properties in the market today.

Insulation is measured in U-Values (the lower the better) and Green Retreats offer the very best in it’s class:

Glazing: U-Value 1.2

Walls: U-Value 0.31

Roof: U-Value 0.35

Floor: U-Value 0.23

Our garden rooms are priced based on the internal sizes rather than the exterior footprint, making it easier for you to plan your work space. A commercial unit from Green Retreats could end up saving you a fortune from the costs of renting a workspace alone. The price includes base, installation and VAT so there are no (nasty) surprises when it comes to final payment.
