“I fell in love with the Garden Hideouts Pod at first sight when visiting Hampton Court Flower Show. Now I’m the proud owner of one in my small garden, things are even better than I dreamed they would be. For me and my sons, the Pod is a multipurpose life changer. They use it as a games room while for me it’s a design come photography studio as well as a place to enjoy drinks and film nights with friends. It’s just so relaxing and private when you want it to be. I suppose that’s down to the brilliant insulation and the cosy shape inside. It’s been a great addition to the home, and was all so easy from start to finish with the help of the Garden Hideouts team.”

“Before Mum came to live with me we’d already decided we both wanted a separate building to keep our independence. And as soon as we saw The Arca  that was it…we were both wowed – just so much more character than anything else we’d seen! In fact, it was hard to believe it was in our budget. But a visit to Hanbury and chat with Garden Hideouts confirmed this was the way ahead. They took care of everything and the guys who built ‘Little Ebor’ (Mum’s name for her new home) were sensational and worked up to 12 hours a day. Not even torrential rain spoilt their parade. Mum and her dogs are over the moon with ‘Little Ebor’. It has great views, fabulous light and is cosy without being cramped.”

“Because I rent my properties through the Airbnb app, you need to be sure your accommodation is up to scratch because people have so much choice. By choosing a Garden Hideouts Shepherds Hut for a corner in our old orchard we’ve gained an edge. It has that brilliant combination of a nostalgic, traditional exterior but with a contemporary and luxurious living environment. The interior design and furnishings were all professionally done by the company which saved us time, effort and money. No planning permission needed either. It’s an absolute winner with guests, especially the Smeg combi oven with grill and the private decking area. All we had to add were a few personal touches like BBQ, outdoor table and chairs.”

“I’m a beauty therapist and after seven good years working for a high street salon, decided it was time to follow my dream and go it alone. The decision to work from a garden pod at home was a moment of inspiration that gave my business an instant head start. With the help of Garden Hideouts I’ve got just what I want…plumbed-in sink units, brilliant underfloor heating as standard, plenty of storage cupboards. When I’m with a client with some background music playing it’s like being in our own tranquil bubble. The Oasis Pod has given me a real USP in the area. So many thanks for the professionalism of Garden Hideouts – I was in safe hands from the initial survey to the final handover.”

“We bought a Shepherds Hut for my parents’ large garden for when we  visit, and it’s made such a difference! The accommodation is pretty much self-sufficient with everything you could ask for…dining area that converts into a double bed, cooking and food preparation area, en-suite with shower… fantastic really…and all so easy. We just told Garden Hideouts what we wanted, and they sorted it out. The guys who installed it worked tirelessly and even delivered bottles of wine to each of the neighbours afterwards to thank them for putting up with any inconvenience. True professionals and really nice people. The hut looks perfect in its setting as we’d hoped and is so warm and inviting all year round that we spend almost every weekend there…it’s our second home.”

“Working with Garden Hideouts has been a completely new experience for me as a Head Teacher. Their unique approach to supporting the customer helps you to feel involved in every stage of the development, from the design point to the finishing touches. As an Inner City school, our building is in a restricted site. Our pupil numbers grow and grow which means that we have to be creative in the way that we approach new projects. Garden Hideouts produced several exquisite designs that enabled us to create an inspirational library space in a very dull area of our school grounds. Affordable development is not usually an option for schools. Our new library has been produced within a very short timeline and to a very high standard. This beautiful space will now allow our children to learn, investigate and read during lesson time and during their free time. I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Excellence runs throughout their designs, materials and dedication to the customer. Our children are so excited and appreciate the commitment that has been shown to our school.”
