A top-quality summerhouse that has brought many a customer’s garden to life with its classic appearance, this building could be the perfect addition to your garden for enhancing your enjoyment of the outdoors.

Ways to Enjoy Your Summerhouse

As a spot to relax in the warmer months with a drink or two, it is hard to beat a summerhouse. With the double doors thrown open, you can spill out onto the veranda and enjoy all the virtues of a beautiful summer’s day in peace and comfort. As the backdrop to a lively BBQ with friends and family, a summerhouse could be just the focal point needed for serving food and drinks too. Plus, the extra space afforded by the 8 x 10 version means there is plenty of room for a dining table and chairs, should you wish to dine in the atmospheric surroundings of your garden with a roof over your head. Alternatively, many customers choose a summerhouse as a space for their hobbies. Whether it’s a quiet reading nook you are after, or perhaps a stylish and bright art studio, a summerhouse could give you the space you need. How you decide to use it is totally up to you, but we are confident you’ll love passing the hours in a Mercia Premium Traditional Summerhouse.

Why Customers Love This Summerhouse

Lovers of a traditional garden building look are immediately drawn to this summerhouse. Its antique style door handles and hinges give a quaint yet timeless look and feel. Alongside the Georgian-style windows and picturesque veranda, an altogether classic look is created. Plus, with its full-length glazed doors, two fixed front windows and an extra side window, buckets of light can flood the interior, making it a bright, airy space in which spending your time is a real pleasure. Tongue and groove boards are also used for the roof and floor, giving an altogether more pleasing look than less attractive alternatives. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their summerhouses, and they look fantastic in any colour – our product images give an idea of what can be achieved with a lick of paint too! Mercia recommends that you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make your summerhouse look exactly how you want, while adding extra protection to the timber. A range of more traditional colours and wood stains can be found in the range that would be superbly suited to a building of this style – browse the full range today!


The walls of this summerhouse are constructed using premium horizontal interlocking tongue and groove boards with a shiplap profile. The shiplap profile includes a protective and aesthetically pleasing lip to create a strong, highly weather-resistant panel. Complete with thick wooden framing to support the cladding internally, this building offers a rigid and long-lasting structure. A mortice lock with a key is supplied enabling you to secure the contents of your summerhouse. Styrene glazing is used for the doors and windows, a safer alternative to traditional glass which is ideal for a busy garden where accidents can happen.

Heavy-duty tongue and groove boards are used to construct the roof and floor of this summerhouse. Using an interlocking method, the boards lock together to create a premium, strong and hard-wearing finish which is ideal for frequently used buildings and heavier items. Robust roofing felt, fixtures and fittings are all supplied as standard, alongside our detailed instructions and our manufacturer’s recommendations, to ensure a simple and stress-free assembly process. Alternatively, sit back, relax, and let the professionals do the work by choosing optional assembly on this product page.

This building is made in the UK, using ethically sourced, FSC certified timber. The summerhouse comes with a conditional 10-year anti-rot guarantee, to ensure your garden building looks great and stands up to the test of time. It also includes a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty. Annual re-treatment is required to maintain your building and the anti-rot guarantee, so make sure to follow all the manufacturer’s care instructions you will receive with your building.

Additional Details About your Order

If you think that a Premium Traditional Summerhouse with Veranda would be perfect for you, take a look at our delivery information. If you would like any extra details, feel free to email us to discuss your order and our full range of product options, or better still, give us a call so we can find the perfect product to suit your needs.

Alternatively, why not visit us at our Brookfields Garden Centre showsite near Nottingham?

Though if there is a particular garden building you would like to see, we recommend contacting us in advance to find out if we have it, or one similar, on site.

This summerhouse is supplied flat packed with instructions and all the fixings necessary to complete construction. The timber used is dip treated, which means it has been pre-treated with a base coat in a brown, industrial product. Please be aware that the colour may vary from any pictures shown. Dip treatment coats the surface of the timber and protects it during manufacture and transit, so you must apply a suitable water-based top coat yourself to ensure your anti-rot guarantee remains valid. You must make sure to follow all the manufacturer’s care instructions in order to maintain the validity of your guarantee - these guidelines will be outlined in the instructions delivered with your product. This will include instructions for periodically treating your timber – Mercia, the manufacturer, recommends Protek Paint, available to purchase from elbec in over 60 stains and colours.

Please note: some images may show this summerhouse painted, as well as decorated with accessories/furnishings. This is for display purposes only. Your order will not be delivered painted, or with any of the accessories/furnishings shown.

Booking Delivery

You will be required to book your delivery date at the time of placing your order (except for Metal Shed). Our 'Request a Delivery Date' service is available to the majority of areas and you'll find that the majority of the UK postcodes are FREE but some areas may incur a delivery surcharge and some postcodes are not covered at all. Select a 'requested delivery date' by entering your postcode in the 'Request a delivery date' section above. You will also be notified at this time if your area incurs a surcharge or delivery is not covered in your area.

Prior to Delivery

On the morning of your delivery date, you'll be sent an update by text with an estimated 2-hour delivery slot (this update can only be provided where a mobile number has been supplied on the billing address section at the time of checkout) together with a link to the manufacturer delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

Please note: Mercia Metal Sheds ONLY - your order is delivered by a courier you will not be notified prior to the delivery. If you are not in on the day of the delivery you will be carded and asked to contact the courier to arrange a new mutual delivery date. The estimated delivery lead time for Mercia's Metal sheds is identified on the product for the metal shed. Lead times are on working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturer. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.


Orders with Assembly 

The lead time for our installation option is around 12 weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.
