The Forest Hollington Shiplap Summerhouse is a high quality, traditional summerhouse, boasting many desired design features, including both indoor and outdoor areas to relax in, due to the integral veranda attached to the front of the summerhouse.

Created using 12mm dip treated shiplap timber, you can be assured that the Hollington will withstand severe weather conditions. The robust tongue and groove floor construction ensures that this summerhouse can be filled with your favourite furniture without worrying about damaging the flooring.

The Hollington summerhouse offers the perfect space to unwind, relax with family and friends, and undertake your hobbies throughout the summer. During the winter months, the Hollington can be used as additional storage space for garden furniture and equipment.

You can apply a decorative colour or stain of your choice if you wish to change the appearance of your summerhouse; we recommend Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finishes, which come in over 50 attractive colours.

Your summerhouse is supplied flat packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price with clear, easy to follow instructions for assembling your building. Alternatively, you can opt to have your summerhouse professionally assembled by our team on a base you prepare.

If you are after a stylish, functional summerhouse which is multipurpose all-year round, look no further than the Forest Hollington Shiplap Summerhouse.
