A log store makes for a fun, interesting and rather different kind of addition to a garden.

Anyway, today we have been putting the ten biggest log store retailers in the UK through their paces and coming up with this epic, top ten log store retailers list. By the end of this list you will know who has the best selection, what site is the easiest to use and what site should be top of your list for purchasing a log store.

The good folks at Shed Store offer one of the largest selections of log stores we have ever seen. What we love about their selection and the reason they have taken the top spot is that they have such a vast range. We are talking things as cheap as a log sack which costs just under £20, all the way up to log stores that are over 6 feet tall and are just  more...

as much a feature as they are a place to store wood. No matter what kind of log store you are looking for, we would bet that you will find it here. The site is also very easy to look around and they aim to get your log store to you within a week so in all this is a site that really is well deserving of the top spot and honestly, we see this as being the place the majority of you reading this will purchase your log store from.

The log store collection that Buy Sheds Direct offer is very similar to what Shed Store have and that is great. With lower priced log stores that are cheap, cheerful and convenient, and log stores that are nearly as big as a shed, they have quite the impressive selection so we are sure you will find something that interests you here. They do offer  more...

a few ideas for extras on most of their log stores and the info and pictures are great so you get a very good idea of what you are going to be getting. All in all, we feel that this is a top website and to be honest with you it was very close between this and Buy Sheds Direct as they are both very similar with their log store collections.

Taylors Garden Buildings have a decent selection of log stores for you to browse and while they have some more upmarket and elaborate log stores, we love how they also have a simply named small and large log store which will be ideal for those people who just want something quick and easy. It was fairly easy to find their log store section  more...

so you will not have any issues browsing their site at all and they do give some good information about each log store, but a couple more pictures would not have hurt. They have awesome customer service and they aim to get your log store to you within ten days which is nice.

They may only have 9 log stores on their site, but Sheds.co.uk manage to have a pretty diverse selection of log stores with them starting at £88.99 and going all the way up to £759.99. We love how each log store you click on has a few different pictures and some very easy to understand information that is not too in depth so that it gives  more...

you a headache. It is a very friendly website so getting in touch is going to be hassle free and looking around it we feel is very easy to do. They also claim that they have a 2-7 day delivery time which is just awesome.

As always, the B&Q website could not be any easier to use, but the real surprise is that they actually have a selection of 8 different log stores. This is more than some of the other sites are offering and they also have a very diverse selection as well. Their cheapest log store is under £100 and their highest priced one is just over £200, so if you are  more...

on a rather tight budget, but want something that is still of a decent quality, then B&Q is worth a look. Each log store has a detailed and easy to understand description as well as multiple pictures, which is something we always like to see. Out of all the large DIY chains, B&Q us by far the best when it comes to log stores.

Garden Buildings Direct have three log stores as part of their BillyOh range and each of these can be purchased in numerous sizes, which is great. So while they may not have a lot of choice in style at least they do offer each log store in plenty of sizes. They also try to tempt you with other kinds of storage boxes and things like that which to be  more...

honest we are not sure how we feel about, as we just wanted to look at log stores and these extra items may confuse some people. The site has a wealth of information for you to digest and you really can learn a lot about each log store thanks to this info and the decent amount of pictures.

Waltons surprised us by only offering two log stores on their site, but the two that they offer are of a good quality and on the lower priced end of the spectrum. They offer a good and easy to use site and they are well known for having a very standard of customer service. Each of the log stores has plenty of information so you are going to know  more...

exactly what you are getting. As well as this they make sure you know how it is going to look as they have used multiple pictures to show off each log store. So while the selection may be very small, the actual site is fantastic.

Homebase like Waltons are only offering two different log stores. The reason though that we have ranked these lower than Waltons is that the two log stores they offer are very similar. Homebase do have a nice website that will cause you no headaches as you are looking around it. Each log store does have a small amount of info and a few pictures as  more...

well, but it is not as much as most of the other sites on this list have. While there is nothing wrong with the two log stores that Homebase offer, we do get the feeling that log stores are not something that they really care about.

Here at number 9 we have Wickes, who actually could have quite easily have been number 8 as what they are offering is similar to what Homebase have. Wickes only have two log stores on their sites with one being a simple £119.99 log store and the other a bit more of an elaborate £209.99 log store. The site is fine and we have no issues with it  more...

at all and finding the log stores was no hassle at all, but as there is only two on here and they are two that we have seen elsewhere, we really do not see too many people using Wickes as their go to place to purchase a log store.

There is a very large selection of log stores on the Sheds World site, but the reason for this is because they actually take your order and then they order the log store from somewhere else. So they do not actually stock the products themselves which can lead to some long delivery times and a lot of frustrated customers. Still the site is easy enough  more...

to use and if nothing else you can use them for their good descriptions on their different log stores, but we would recommend you see where else the log store is available from before you place an order here.
