The Malvern Collection
Offer ends 31st January 2020
The Malvern Arley Apex is a cross between a garden office and traditional summer house that offers you the opportunity to work from home or have a beautiful garden room to enjoy timeless moments with your friends and family.
As standard each Malvern Arley Apex has modern chrome ironmongery, a five lever mortice lock for added security, 38kg bitumen felt roofing in red, green or black, rot proof pressure treated floor joists and a preservative treatment throughout. Our great range of optional extras gives you the ability to tailor your Arley to your own style. By adding either the patterned MDF or tongue and groove lining and insulation your Arley can be used all year round - keeping you warmer through the winter months.
Choice of Timber Cladding
Choose between redwood, pressure treated, cedar, heavy duty redwood or heavy duty pressure treated. The redwood cladding (both standard and heavy-duty), are pre-treated with a water based preservative inside and out before it leaves the factory. The pressure treated cladding (both standard and heavy-duty), has a long-lasting treatment forced deep inside the timber giving the timber an attractive green hue which complements gardens well. The Western Red Cedar is a beautiful and versatile timber which produces its own natural oils and preservatives making it a durable and rot-resistant species of timber, perfect for a garden summer house.
Double Glazed Windows and Doors
As standard, the Malvern Arley includes half-height, double glazed windows and doors with a single half-height window either gable end of the building. This maximises light into your building - perfect for all uses!
Under 2.5m Height
The Malvern Arley is designed with a ridge height of under 2.5m so that planning permission is only needed in special circumstances.
All Malvern Arley and Studio range buildings are supplied with chrome window and door furniture, bringing a high-quality finish to your summerhouse.
Safety and Security
A five-lever mortice lock is included as standard to make sure your building is safe and secure.
All our summer houses include a guarantee against rot and decay:
10-Year guarantee for Cedar
3-Year guarantee for Pressure Treated
2-Year guarantee for Redwood.
|Width||Ridge Height||Eaves Height||Door Width|
|8' (2.44m)||2.41m||2.04m||0.76m Wide Standard|
|0.70m Wide Georgian|
Installation by our own skilled fitters onto a suitably prepared base (not included).

Customise your building with a range of beautiful countryside colours:
The Arley Apex can be finished in a choice of 20 different countryside colours if you so choose, making it blend in naturally with your garden. Here this building is finished in Malvern Green, a very popular choice.
A single door offset to one side of the front is standard but this picture shows the building with a set of central double doors.
Garden Offices are a great way to make a whole lifestyle change at a very reasonable cost :
With fuel costing around £6 for every 30 miles you travel the savings from working at home soon mount up. Not only that but you get back many hours of your life by avoiding sitting in the traffic every day!
This 10ft (wide) x 8ft Malvern Arley Apex, pictured at our Woodford Park display centre, has a painted finish with MDF lining and insulation, a ‘Renaissance Oak’ deluxe laminate floor, double doors, and Georgian window upgrades.
The Malvern Arley Apex is a lovely, traditional garden room which can be used as a garden office, playroom, summerhouse or just a warm and cosy outdoor space to enjoy with friends and family.

Attractively styled with optional 'Georgian' small pane windows and doors, this 10ft wide Arley Apex provides a fabulous home office in this attractive setting. There are three widths available ( 8ft, 10ft and 12ft ) and a choice of depths.
Although the ridge height is less than 2.5m, the interior is roomy and comfortably proportioned.
Options chosen with this particular building include insulation and lining with painted mdf panelling, laminate floor, double door, and black bitumen felt roof tiles.
The Arley Apex is designed to be under 2.5metres in height : this is because planning restrictions mean that a building which is placed within 2 metres of a boundary generally needs to be under 2.5m to avoid planning permission.
Where a building is sited elsewhere in the garden the rules generally allow up to 4 metres without permission.
This Arley has been purchased with a higher roof than normal as it stands well away from any boundaries. It has the standard style of Arley windows and has an internal partition and communicating door (you can just see through the front windows in the picture!)
The Arley is available in Apex, Pavilion or Pent roof style with a comprehensive range of options that allow you to customise this office / outdoor room to your exact requirements.
Shown here with standard double glazed windows and finished in Medium Oak.
A single door offset to one side of the front is standard but this picture shows the building with a set of central double doors.
Installation by our teams of skilled fitters is optional (although recommended!).
All glazing is with toughened safety glass.
The optional tongued and grooved pine lining inside the Arley Apex is carefully fitted to provide a pleasant working environment. Because the walls and roof are insulated when the building is lined, the Arley Apex will become suitable for all year round use.
We recommend heating the Arley Apex with electric thermostatically controlled convector heaters. You can set these to maintain a minimum temperature when you aren't using the building so that paper and equipment remain at the appropriate temperature.
Choose the optional mdf panels, sprayed with a honeydew paint finish, and you choose a hard-wearing and attractive finish for the inside of your Arley or Studio Garden Office. Pictured here on the Arley (which has half length windows rather than the full length windows featured on Studio models). The mdf lining helps create a light and airy feel to this working environment.
When you choose either the mdf lining, or the t&g lining pictured elsewhere in this gallery, the building is insulated too with a uFoil insulation in the walls and roof.
A close up of the optional Georgian Window style available with the Arley range.
These windows are double glazed with toughened safety glass.
One opening window is fitted as standard on each side of the building with a further two fixed windows in the front (one in 8ft wide models) Additional windows are available if required.
Shown here on the Arley Apex model.
We are able to offer a selection of attractive laminate floors for our Arley range which, if you choose to have our bespoke fitting teams to install your building, will be fitted at the same time.
Shown here fitted in the Studio range which has full length windows rather than the Arley's half length windows.
Our double glazed Arley and Studio ranges of Garden Offices, whether Apex, Pent or Pavilion style, can all be fitted with an optional integral shed conversion.
In this picture of a 14ft x 8ft Arley Pavilion the shed section (4ft wide in this case) is fitted within the LH side. Pent versions would also have the shed conversion to one side or the other whereas Apex versions would have a rear compartment as a shed section if specified.
Please note that the shed section is not lined or double glazed and comes with a joinery made single glazed shed window and a solid, framed and braced shed door.
In this picture of a 14ft x 8ft Arley Pavilion other options are the paint finish, internal mdf lining, bitumen felt roof tiles, and laminate floor.
Please note that the amount of the building converted to shed use is up to you but is normally 4ft, 6ft or 8ft depending on the overall length of the building. The shed area is not an extension added to your building, it is part of the original dimensions.
Pressure treatment is literally that : all components of the building are placed in a large pressurised cylinder which forces the preservative deep into the timber. The formulation of the preservative gives our pressure treated buildings their green / yellow hue which complements so many gardens.
Good looks and an extended lifetime are the main benefits of choosing pressure treated cladding.
Cedar is well known for its durability, good looks and quality. With its own natural oils, it lasts for many , many years without rotting although we would advise you to treat it with a good quality wood preserver every couple of years to help maintain its good looks.
Our cedar Garden Offices contain cedar doors, windows and external cladding and trims.
This picture shows the cedar slatted overlap roof finish available for the Arley Apex. Laid over an inner felted roof this gives double protection to the building and is an attractive addition which will weather over the years to a silver grey colour.
Shown here on our Stanford shed range, the principle is exactly the same for the Arley.
The Arley roof can have pressure treated slats for an extra touch of style at an additional cost. These are laid over a felted inner roof which ensures that it is double weatherproofed!
Cedar slatted roofs are available too. Other options include felt tiles or cedar shingles.
Shown here on our Stanford shed range, the principle is exactly the same on the Arley range.
The Malvern Arley and Studio range now have the option of tinted glass for additional privacy and security. Perfect for the garden office that may be overlooked by neighbours.
This model is 10ft wide x 8ft deep with attractive cedar cladding and a tongue and groove internal finish with insulation.

All of our Malvern Garden Offices will be delivered and installed (where applicable) by our skilled team of fitters - ensuring that your garden office arrives in perfect condition and it is assembled to the highest standard.
Please be aware that you will need to provide a good, strong and level base constructed from either slabs or concrete. This will need to be completed prior to our delivery date, ensuring that it is set and strong enough for that building to sit on.
We will always confirm these details with you at point of order and we will provide you with base plans so that no detail is left out - ensuring that your garden office will be both delivered and installed without any inconvenience.
As with all of our garden buildings, we like to provide our customers with a suitable delivery time. We always give good notice of our arrival date, allowing you to be sure it is the right time for you. We always appreciate any helpful information regarding access to your pre-prepared base area and any details you may need to share with us about reaching you - so that the delivery process can run as smoothly as possible.
Our delivery times can vary from season to season, but typically you should expect to receive your building around 4-6 weeks from point of order. All of our buildings are made to order, so during the busy spring to summer seasons this may increase to 6-8 weeks - dependant on the building that you purchase. Please feel free to contact us on 0800 999 0123 to check our current delivery times.
