garden summerhouses

This weekend saw us taking a drive up into Dartmoor to visit an open garden under the National Gardens Scheme and what a delight when on the two and a half acres and amidst a field of wildflowers we saw this

a reproduction of a 1924 ‘Angela’ caravan.

lovingly fitted out with a little sink and hob it would be the perfect place to relax after working your two and a half acres.

Now these summerhouses below are raised off the ground on staddle stones which was always the way of keeping harvested grain dry and pest free. They are made from sustainable wood and are erected on site and can even be wired up for electrics and telephone points making the ideal garden room/office and what’s more you don’t need massive acreage for these!
