Let’s start with the obvious thing here, Shed Store have a ton of different summer houses for you to look through. They have them in all kinds of shapes, sizes, styles and price. So if you are on a tight budget then these guys will have something for you. We really liked how easy it was to get to their summer house section and looking through  more...

their selection was hassle free. When you do click on one of their summer houses, you will be very impressed with the amount of information they give you. Most of the summer houses do have a few pictures and they also let you know what extras each one has. In all this is an awesome site and should certainly be the first place you check out

Buy Sheds Direct offer a very impressive selection of summer houses and the way they have them organised in their very own section is very similar to what our number 1 pick, Shed Store have done. We really liked this site and the way they have summer houses in all different sizes and at all prices, so no matter what kind of budget you are  more...

working with, we are sure there will be something for you. The information they give you for each summer house and their selection of extras is fantastic, but the reason this is number 2 and not number 1 is simply because we wish that they used a few more pictures for some of their summer houses. A small nit pick we know, but when it comes to the top spot it is the little things that matter!

Taylors Garden Buildings has the most incredible selection of summer houses we have ever seen. They have so many it is like they are running some kind of summer house convention. They have their own dedicated summer house section, but then there are an astonishing amount of different categories of summer house for you to consider. We love  more...

this as it keeps the different types of summer house in their own section, but for someone who is new to things like this and has no idea what they want, then this could potentially cause them to miss some of the summer houses they have and actually find things a little too overwhelming. If you are willing to spend the time checking each section, then you are certainly going to find a summer house that suits your needs.

Garden Buildings Direct have some amazing looking summer houses as part of their BillyOh range. We really like how most of them have a high quality and almost cabin in the woods type style. Speaking of which, they do mix in a few log cabins and other structures in this section, but that is certainly not something we are going to put them down  more...

for. When you do click on one of  their summer houses, you will at first be a little overwhelmed as they give you a whole host of options to make the summer house your own. The floor, windows, colour and shelving are just a few of the things that you have control of. We love this level of customisation and are sure it is something you could have a lot of fun with .

With summer houses of all sizes and prices, Sheds.co.uk is a site that we really liked looking around. They have an actual summerhouse section where you can either look at all their summer houses in one big list or they have more specific sections where summer houses are put into specific groups, which is great if you have an idea of what kind  more...

of summer house you want. With plenty of pictures and detailed descriptions, they have made sure that you are well informed about each summer house you are looking at. Also they offer plenty of extras for most of their summer houses which is something we like.

Waltons is a fine site and they make looking at their range of summerhouses very easy. The fact that they are not in the top five really does show you what a competitive top ten we have here. Waltons have budget summer houses and very extravagant ones as well, so you do get a great mix here. They also have mixed in a few log cabins,  more...

workshops and other structures in this section as well, but it is mainly made up of summer houses. Still we like how they have mixed the odd thing in here and there as it does keep your mind open about what you want to buy. Waltons do a great job in telling you what you need to know about each summer house and they also use plenty of pictures to show them off.

We were not only impressed at the selection of summer houses B&Q have, but we were also very impressed with how they actually have a dedicated summer house section. B&Q is a site that is very easy to use and we love how in their summer house section they make it a point to inform you clearly what ones come with an assembly service  more...

and which ones do not. They do this in the product name, so you do not even have to click on one to know if it has an assembly service. This is what we call a very nice touch. They give plenty of information about each one and most of them do have multiple pictures for you to look at.

Homebase do have their summer houses in the same section as their log cabins, but you can with just one click make the site show you only their summer houses. They do actually have a very impressive selection to look at and we liked how they had some expensive large and high quality summer houses, as well as some that are more modest. They  more...

give you all the details you need to know and most of them even have a gallery of photos to look at as well.

Wickes do actually have a section for summer houses, but it was not exactly easy for us to find and in the end we just resorted to using their search engine to find them all. They do not have the largest selection as they only have six to choose from, but what we like about these is how they have decided to only stock summer houses that are more modestly  more...

priced. You will not find any summer houses that cost thousands of pounds here and that makes this a site that would be worth checking out if you just want something cheap and do not want to be tempted by something more expensive.

Sheds World have a phenomenal amount of summerhouses for you to look at, some might find the incredible selection a little bit daunting to get through, but we do not see choice as something that is bad. The site has fantastic summerhouse section which lets you tinker with the search options so you can narrow your search down a little bit. While   more...

we really like the large selection that they have here, we must say that their customer service and delivery times could really use some improvement so that is certainly something to think about before pulling the trigger on a summerhouse here.
