We are here to help you create the space you want, with our flexible, high-quality composite timber ‘Garden Bothies’ giving you a choice of designs, colour and long-lasting style – all underpinned by our expertise in installation and excellent customer service.


Designed to Last

Our garden rooms and garden offices are designed and manufactured to be low maintenance and withstand the Scottish elements, so you do not have to worry about any ongoing work or repairs. Using high-quality materials and innovative design, we aim to provide you with a superior product at the best possible price that should look as good in years to come as it does on the day of installation.

Our Garden Bothies come in five different size options, and with the option to add a canopy and decking:

About Our Garden Bothies

The Material

The unique cross-section composite material used in our garden rooms gives them a traditional timber appearance with absolutely none of the additional maintenance timber requires. Your stylish space is guaranteed to never rot, warp or fade and will never require painting or staining.


The wood composite material we use is made from a recycled mix of 60% wood and 40% polymers with an insulated core. It is water, mould and algae resistant, highly durable and design versatile – perfect for creating a strong, sustainable and innovative garden room for you.


Every one of our Garden Bothies is designed to be fully weatherproof with a BBA certified roof system and strong robust framework. The walls are also highly insulated to give you a comfortable living space all year round.


Finishes and Options

You have huge freedom of choice when it comes to your design and how you use your new garden space.


Colour: There are four natural-looking colour options to choose from for your Garden Bothy wall panels and main structure, all with a contemporary finish. Or you can mix and match two or more colours if you prefer.


Choose from:

  • Wild Brown
  • Antique Ash
  • Ancient Black
  • Salt Lake Silver














Internal space: Internal walls can be added as you want with separate door access to create partitions and separate rooms inside.


Electrics: Your room comes with one pre-routed electrical socket board, and you can opt for extra sockets
and choose lighting and heating options.


Glazing: You have different finish and glazing options available, including sliding doors to finish your module.


Designed to high specifications and at a highly competitive price, our Garden Bothies are fully adaptable and
a perfect way to get more space, cheaper than moving house or adding an extension, making them a brilliant long-term investment.



Most Garden Buildings under 2.5 Metres high do not need ‘Planning Permission’

Planning permission takes into consideration the size of the building, its location within the boundary of your property, external appearance and its intended use. Planning rules vary between Scotland, England and Wales.


Generally speaking, planning permission for your Garden Bothy is NOT required in Scotland if:


  • Your Garden Bothy is being located in your rear garden and does not project forward
    in front of your house.

  • The area your Garden Bothy is added to, and all other development constructed after the original house (including extensions, garages, outbuildings and sheds) does not exceed 50% of the total area of your garden area.

  • Your new Garden Bothy is not used as a dwelling or as self-contained living accommodation.

  • Your Garden Bothy is single storey.

  • Any section of the Garden Room against a boundary is no more than 1.8m high.

  • Any section of the Garden Room 1m from the boundary is no more than 2.5m high.

  • Elsewhere in your garden the eaves height is no more than 3 metres and the ridge height is no more than 4 metres.


Planning Permission generally is required if you are in a conservation area, your property is listed or you live within a World Heritage site.


If you are unsure whether Planning Approval will be required, you can contact your Local Planning Authority or contact us for support and further information


The Garden Bothy Company accepts no responsibility for planning permission. It is the responsibility of the home owner to obtain all consents if required prior to erection of your garden building
