A simple & modern modular building range
– limited time only

As an alternative to our luxury garden room buildings, The Pod has been created to help our customers create extra space at a time when they need it most. Simpler, cheaper and quicker to install than our core Green Retreats range, The Pod can make your extra space dreams easier to achieve than you might have thought.

For a Limited Time Only | Working from home has never been more relevant than it is today. We want to help make it possible for you to have the extra space you need at a price that fits your budget.

The Pod is a great garden building alternative, due to its simple design and attractive price-tag. To make this possible we have simplified our construction methods, adapted building materials and scaled-back options and ‘luxuries’ to offer a complete building solution that comes with all the essentials you need but at a more competitive price.

What can The Pod be used for?

The Pod is your space to transform into any room you need.

Provided to you as a blank canvas with all the essentials in place, you can completely customise the internal of your building to suit any purpose. Here are some of our most popular uses:

Home Office

Join the work from home revolution or start your own business from home in the comfort and privacy of your own professional home office. Unlike a traditional home office, a garden office gets you away from the distractions of home and gets you out of the way of your family going about their day too!

Garden Gym

Save time and money by creating your own home gym. The perfect place to keep unsightly and bulky gym equipment, as well as being a private space to focus on your fitness goals.

Teen Den or Man Cave

For when you need extra space to do whatever it is that you enjoy – be it a cinema room, games room, hobby room, music studio – a pod is a cost-effective way to make space to get away and chill out.

Why choose The Pod?

Every Pod building needs its cladding treated with an acrylic based paint within 6 months of installation. There is a vast range of colour options available in the market, so this is your opportunity to get creative!

Simply Customisable
You have a choice of stylish laminate flooring, placement of electrical outlets, as well as the positioning of your door and window to make your space suit your needs.

Competitively Priced
The Pod is a completely new and different product to our core Green Retreats range. We have stripped back the options and ‘luxuries’, as well as completely rethinking our construction methods for a practical and versatile modular design.

Finished in 1 Day
The Pod is installed from start to finish in just 1 day with minimal disruption to your home and life.

Stand Alone Workspace
The Pod is a completely stand-alone building from your home, which makes these buildings a great space for extra privacy and focus.

The Pod generally falls into permitted development, much like a typical garden shed! For more information on permitted development, visit the planning portal.

Part of the Work from Home revolution since 2005.

Working from home has never been more relevant than it is today. Green Retreats was founded to offer a solution to the home working revolution when it first took off in 2005. Since then we have been helping our customers create space for whatever they need, be it a home office or home gym.

Jump ahead to 2020 and with so many people experiencing working from home for the first time, we expect that more than ever people will be realising the benefits of working from home, as well as the drawbacks. The need for an isolated space to work from, free from distractions is where we can help. With the addition of The Pod to our product line for a limited time only, we can now cater to our customers who are looking for a simpler and cheaper solution.


All of our pod buildings are fully insulated for comfortable use all-year-round. We have engineered the walls, roof and floor panels to help keep you warm in the winter and to help keep the heat out in the summer. All doors and windows are premium double glazed too, so open them wide in summer or tightly closed in winter to keep control of your environment.

What is The Pod made of?

The Pod is created using traditional, treated, natural materials alongside modern and environmentally friendly composites and insulators to provide you with the ultimate garden room solution.

Whilst The Pod is not as well insulated as our core range from Green Retreats, the system we have created is perfectly warm enough to use in the coldest of months. We also provide you with an oil-filled radiator to use on the days you’d put the heating on at home.

We’ve been careful too, to create The Pod in line with our principles of transparency and ongoing efforts to remain and improve our environmental credentials. The word “polystyrene” does not usually have positive eco-connotations, however, the polystyrene used in our walls is fully recycled and no toxic substances are used during its production.

Do I need planning permission?

The Pods have been designed to fall within permitted development rights meaning that generally, you will not need planning permission to install one. There are some instances depending on where you live or where in your garden you plan to install your building that may mean that planning permission is required. If you are unsure, please contact a member of our sales team who will be happy to help point you in the right direction. For more information visit the Planning Portal website.
