Influenced by the Malvern Newland Corner Pent Summer house, the Countryside Corner Pent is designed to fit into the corner of the garden but features a lower line roof which gives it less impact for neighbouring properties. It also means it is rarely subject to planning permission and is less expensive!
As standard, this summer house is supplied with ¾ length opening and fixed windows, a preservative treatment throughout, 4mm toughened safety glass, a solid timber felted roof and 3-lever mortice lockable double doors. You can truly make this building your own and as you choose the cladding, roof, windows and doors styles. These superb optional extras allow you to tailor your building to suit your style.
The Countryside range also offers a choice of cladding profile. Choose from traditional shiplap, as featured prominently in the Malvern summer house range, or square cladding - a contemporary and stylish cladding profile.
At GBC, we are continuously striving to improve our products, methods and materials, which means we may change the specification of a product or range from time to time, but we will not make any significant changes without your agreement
Please look at our image gallery which will show you various sizes and styles of these buildings along with pictures of their construction and optional items.
Choice of Timber Cladding
Choose between 12mm redwood, 12mm pressure treated redwood, premium cedar, 19mm redwood or 19mm pressure treated redwood. The 12mm and 19mm redwood are pre-treated with a water based preservative inside and out before it leaves the factory. The 12mm and 19mm pressure treated redwood has a long-lasting treatment forced deep inside the timber giving the timber an attractive green hue which compliments 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.
All Countryside range buildings are supplied as standard with a green, red or black colour felt roof.
Under 2.5m Height
The Countryside Corner Pent features a ridge height of under 2.5m so that planning permission is only needed in special circumstances.

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 summerhouses their green / yellow hue which complements so many gardens.
Good looks and an extended lifetime are the main benefits of choosing pressure treated construction.
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' summerhouses contain cedar doors, windows and external cladding and trims. They have preservative treated redwood framing, floors and verandahs ( where fitted ).
There are 5 window styles available with our summerhouse range.
From L to R these are Plain, Square Lead, Diamond Lead, Georgian, and Full Length Glass.
The exact layout, numbers of windows, and positioning is discussed on the pages relating to each product but for a general overview this is a useful comparison.
