Highly Commended at the Lloyds British Business Excellence Awards 2022


Back in August we were delighted to announce our status as finalists in The Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards 2022, nominated for ‘Sustainable Business of the Year’ & ‘Mid-Market Business of the Year’.

We’re thrilled and humbled to have been recognised at the glittering award ceremony on the 8th November, walking away with a ‘High Commendation‘ in the ‘Mid-Market Business of the Year’ award category! This recognition is a true demonstration of our employee’s hard work and dedication across The Green Retreats Group.



We truly value our recognition within the industry as the UK’s leading garden room company and our growth since our journey began in 2005.

Highly Commended in the ‘Mid-Market Business of the Year’ award category

The awards night saw us take home a ‘High Commendation‘ in the ‘Mid-Market Business of the Year Award’, an award that recognises businesses of an established market position that has seen spectacular growth in a tightly competitive industry.

Our garden rooms are a revolutionary and cost-effective solution to create space in an evolving nation – encouraging positive growth within the home renovation market, especially as a result of the work from home movement with our garden office buildings. We have experienced exceptional growth during the pandemic, maintaining market leader status in what was an emerging market pre-pandemic. The nation has been forced to adapt how their homes operate, now catering for work, entertaining and health and wellness – all of which are areas that our buildings add benefit.
