The Entertainment Pod from Garden Hideouts is the ultimate space in which to enjoy music or a film, or simply have a great time with friends or family. The interior is a stylish and comfortable environment all year round, just perfect for relaxing or entertaining.
Specially fitted out to make the most of today’s media systems, it comes with our standard hi-fi and TV, or of course you can specify your own system. Either way, it’s the perfect place to party and enjoy yourself without disturbing anyone.
All Pods from Garden Hideouts have been designed to offer a practical and attractive space that has been built for durability, warmth and weather-proofing.Each building is constructed from a dual layer of bonded 18mm ‘Grade A’ structural ply. This has been sustainably sourced directly from Finland before being professionally cut from a unique CAD design on our CNC machinery. The building’s precision built framework utilises the tried and trusted tusk tenon and wedge system. The result is uniquely strong series of joints, delivering a rigid, robust and long-lasting structural frame.
• Western Red Cedar exterior cladding: ethically-sourced and slow-grown. Can be either hand-oiled to preserve its rich colour or left untreated to turn silver-grey over the seasons.
• Select grade Scandinavian Redwood tongue and groove interior cladding. Primed, painted and immaculately finished
• Framework cavity insulated with a layer of ecologically sound 100mm flexible mineral wool. The semi-rigid shape of the insulation allows it to be measured and cut accurately filling the void more completely, thereby providing excellent all year round thermal and acoustic performance.
• ‘A’ rated double glazed bespoke wooden door and window units.
• Optional distinctive half-glazed end panel.
• Quick-Step Impressive laminate flooring with water-repellent ‘Hydroseal’ coating.
• Certified electrical system with high quality finish outlets.
• Fully delivered to site and professionally constructed.
The most suitable type of foundation will be selected for the ground conditions where the Pod is to be sited to ensure a secure base for the building.

Just to say thank you to you and your team. The Pod is amazing and the guys who built it were incredibly hardworking craftsmen. The result is perfect and the whole experience was very smooth...Mr Dix
My therapy pod... I would just like to say, I am so impressed by the work and skill carried out. The pod looks amazing and all my clients are so impressed by the whole structure and all the little finishing touches ie. the rope and fittings. I liked that I was kept informed and updated throughout with pictures of the progress, nothing seemed like too much. Your team's attitude towards myself, the pod and the care of my house was excellent. They put up with all my annoying questions too! You have a great team working for you and I feel it's important for you to know this from a happy customer. All my clients want a pod in their gardens now!...Michelle Riach
Thank you too to everyone involved in building my Shepherds Hut, I love it. This morning we had a removals firm move all my fabrics and yarns into the hut and everything is going to look wonderful, after a massive tidying session! I am delighted and will enjoy working in such a special space. ...Christine Bell
