The luxurious National Trust summerhouses by Scotts of Thrapston

Garden tranquillity is to be cherished and what better way than in one of these amazing garden retreats designed and built by specialist summerhouse manufacturer Scotts of Thrapston. They`ve teamed up with The National Trust to sell these luxury outbuildings which retail around the £9,495 mark.


There are two designs, the Reading Room, inspired by Virginia Woolf`s garden writing room at Monk`s House, her Country home in Sussex, and the Writer`s Retreat which is entered through a charming stable door and is the smaller of the two delightful buildings; it promotes a rustic and romantic style, with natural stained wood boarding inside and heritage style paints to the exterior.

The Reading Room is larger and the sumptuous oak clad finish that time will alter, as the oak ages, will flourish into a charming silver lustre. With its Buttermilk painted doors and windows it is well suited to a country cottage just like the property behind its inspiration, Monk`s House, near the market town of Lewes. The Reading Room`s lined interior gives a bright and spacious feel and it can be opened up to the garden by a large set of French doors.

Both styles of garden retreats are fitted out with comfy day beds, for relaxing afternoons when you can gather your thoughts, and a well positioned desk with integral ink well and pencil rest, to help realise those thoughts on paper. Both the day bed and desk can be neatly folded away when not in use so that the space can be utilised for other purposes, such as dining and accommodating guests.
