Escape this Winter

by TG Escapes | Nov 7, 2013 | Blog, Residential

The family gatherings, office parties and shopping of the winter season can contribute to heightened stress and anxiety levels in all of us at one time or another. It’s been proven that spending time in a natural environment can help relieve stress and improve positivity, however this can seem a less appealing option when the skies above your garden are grey and murky. A multi-purpose garden studio offers a cosy shelter where you can enjoy the beauty of your natural surroundings all year long.

As the nights get darker and colder, your relaxation space needs to be warm, welcoming and winter-proof. With draught-sealed doors and double-glazing, our studios guarantee a winter haven even on the coldest of nights. Instantaneous hot water units and a variety of heating options combine to create a self-contained space where you can escape to when the stresses of winter are proving too much.

Whether you fancy curling up with a book, enjoying a cup of tea or catching up with a friend, an outdoor space offers a sanctuary where the only distraction is your beautiful view of nature. Mr Coward from Sheepswash, Devon was looking for a space to relax and enjoy the views around his garden. Although intended as a room for observing wildlife and sunsets, the inclusion of a 3-suite bathroom makes it suitable as a guest room, home office or living space.

As Susan Wadsworth discovered, a studio can also offer a place to focus on hobbies or interests away from the distractions of the house. After upgrading her crowded shed to a bespoke garden studio, she found the change of environment benefited her work as well as her mood. Previously fighting spades and buckets for space, she now takes inspiration for her artwork from the natural materials surrounding her. With full-length windows and light fittings designed to maximise available light, her studio allows her to continue working whatever the weather.

All of our Garden Escapes are designed to be individual, and can be constructed in as little as 10 days. If you have ideas for a garden design of your own and are curious about how we could help achieve it please get in touch to arrange your free, no-obligation consultation.
