The Shire Barclay Summerhouse is designed to be placed into the corner of a garden, as the two rear walls come together to form a right angle.

The fully glazed double doors are flanked on either side by fully glazed window panels, all of which allow plenty of daylight to enter into the summerhouse.

The Barclay Summerhouse is made from tongue and groove cladding to the walls and floor, while the roof panels are a solid sheet OSB. Mineralized felt is supplied to cover the roof and full instructions, fixtures and fittings are provided as standard.

While the Barclay is designed for placement into the corner of a garden, we recommend allowing a little room all around this corner summerhouse to make it easier to re-apply wood preservative as instructed.

Our product specifications are given in good faith but can be subject to manufacturer change without notice. Should an attribute be of essense to your purchase, please feel free to contact us first for confirmation.



The Shire Barclay Summerhouse 8x8 is delivered from central UK stocks by the manufacturer. Shire's own experienced personnel undertake delivery to ensure your goods arrive in a perfect condition.


Shire operate mostly small, flat-bed trucks. If a dustbin lorry can reach your property, Shire should too. Limited access? Please call us prior to ordering to avoid a costly abortive delivery.


Unloading will take place at the kerb-side or your adjacent driveway. Vehicles will not leave the public highway. The driver, at their discretion, may be willing to carry the goods to your garden. Shire will not carry goods through or into your home, therefore you may wish to arrange some extra help privately.

Free Delivery

Shire offer a free delivery service within Central and Southern England, as indicated by their red zone on the map below. The above postcode checker will confirm this for you.

Pick A Day Delivery

For products on '7-14 days' delivery located within the majority of Shire's free red zone, during the checkout process you will be offered a calendar which allows you to select a preferred delivery date. Shire will endeavour to deliver on the date you have chosen. You will be promptly notified in the rare event that an alternative date is necessary for logistical reasons. As some distant red zone locations (such as BA postcodes) are serviced on a 2-day (overnight) run, the actual delivery day may vary by +/- 1 day of the date chosen. The following red zone locations are excluded from the Pick A Day service; BB, BD, BH, BL, BS, DH, DL, DT, FY, GU, HG, HR, L, PO, PR, SO, SP, SR, TA, TS and WN. Note: When an installation option has been chosen, a Pick-A-Day selection will not be offered; due to additional, post-order labour scheduling.  

Delivery Period

Delivery will typically occur within the period quoted on this product. For those products outside the '7-14 days' offer, you will be given the opportunity to chose your delivery date via Shire's online booking portal; a link will be sent by text or email a day or so after order. If a date is not chosen, Shire will notify you in advance by either telephone, text or email to confirm their date of delivery.

Extended Delivery

Less frequently serviced locations such as those outside Shire's red zone, may be subject to an extended period of up to an additional 7-14 days. These distant locations include North and South-West England, Wales and Scotland.

Installation (Extended Delivery)

When an installation service is chosen the product delivery period will increase by approximately 14-28 days, to accommodate additional labour scheduling. Therefore, a '14 Day' self-assembly delivery will become a '28-42 day' installed order. Once placed, Shire will issue an installation pack by email to explain the standard of supporting base required (concrete, paving etc), to enable installation to proceed. Installation scheduling will only commence once the customer returns the base and access information Shire request, including images of their existing base. A prompt return is advisable to avoid delay.

Offshore Delivery

The only offshore location Shire deliver to is the Isle of Wight; PO30-41. A green zone delivery charge applies to this island.

Excluded Locations

Shire does not service the following distant onshore locations; Northern Ireland (BT) and Scottish Highlands (IV4+, KW, PA20-78 and PH19-44). These form the yellow zone as shown upon the lower map. All offshore locations are excluded too, examples being; Guernsey (GY), Western Isles (HS), Isle of Man (IM), Jersey (JE), Orkney (KW), Shetland (ZE) and Scottish Islands (PA & PH).

Distant Surcharge

Due to additional Shire zone fees, certain distant locations can only be serviced at a surcharge (at cost). The above post code checker can confirm if a surcharge will apply.

These locations include:

Orange Zone (CF,CH,LA,NP) at £30.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £132.00)

Blue Zone (CA,EX,LD,NE,SY) at £36.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £168.00)

Green Zone (DG,EH,G,KA,LL,ML,PL,PO30-41,SA1-18,TD,TQ) at £48.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £264.00)

Purple Zone (AB,DD,FK,IV1-3,KY,PA1-19,PH1-18,SA19-73,TR) at £78.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £360.00)

This map offers a visual impression of the four surcharge zones. Delivery is free within the central red zone. No delivery service is available to the yellow zone.

    Really happy with my Summerhouse, it was delivered earlier than expected which was good. We just bought a better quality roofing felt due to the weather conditions we experience in our garden.

    Very happy with the summerhouse we erected it ourselves and found it easier to paint first we used the protek paint and found it needed 3 coats but we are very pleased with it, The only thing that disappointed was that the handle was to big so we bought 2 chrome ones instead. we found the ordering very easy and the delivery was on time as promised. will recommend to all friends and family.

  • 4 out of 5   , Solihull.

    Wednesday 21st July 2021

    This is a nice summer house, if a little pricey. The construction instructions were fairly easy to follow, but definitely need a minimum of two people to erect. Be aware also that you may have to "tweak" the construction as it is not always a good fit, with various gaps and hole to be filled in. I would have preferred to have the pieces individually labelled and with fixing holes pre-drilled for easier construction. So far (two months) the building has remained waterproof and stable. I would recommend onsite inspection prior to purchase.

    We bought the Barclay Shire corner 8 by 8 summerhouse last month. No problems with delivery or putting it up. It fits perfectly into the corner of my garden and is much more spacious inside than I had imagined. Enjoying using it very much. Would recommend it to anyone with a small garden.

    Tuesday 02nd April 2019

    We received the separate panels for our summer house and were a bit dubious about putting it up properly. But the instructions were easy to follow and it went together perfectly. We had a bad storm a week or so later and it stood up to that test. So we are really pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone.

  • 5 out of 5   , Wakefield.

    Sunday 10th February 2019

    Good delivery. Not that hard to build. The ground needs to be level for the doors to hang straight. Looks nice. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback and the mention of the importance of a level base. Without a firm, (spirit) level area of concrete or paving etc, any wooden floor will 'twist' to a low point of your base. A prime indicator of an unlevel base are the door(s) sitting out of alignment within their door frame; you'll see triangular gapping top and bottom. You must either then correct your base or pack beneath the affected floor joist to resolve.)

  • 4 out of 5   , Grimsby.

    Monday 23rd July 2018

    Found the Shire Barclay summerhouse to be excellent quality for the money. Took a little bit longer to assemble than anticipated but looked great when finished. Just a couple of little niggles, a couple of the window beads were broken on delivery and one of the doors was quite badly warped, which I didn't notice until I tried to hang it. Contacted Shire and they were very helpful and dispatched replacements straight away.

  • 4 out of 5   , London.

    Monday 12th June 2017

    The summerhouse is lovely, great size and looks lovely in the garden. My only negative comment is that the doors don't close tightly. There is a gap between the doors and also the handle is a little bit wobbly. If u kind of lift & push it's possible to get the doors almost lined up but I don't think it will be possible to attach extra locks or bolts to increase the security of it. Am slightly worried that in the winter the door may not be completely weatherproof but I did choose a cheaper option. Still happy with the summerhouse.

  • 5 out of 5   , Pucklechurch.

    Saturday 03rd June 2017

    Placed order and received prompt delivery. The summer house was generally as described. After treating it three coats of wood treatment to get the colour we wanted, it was ready for assembly. A concrete base was installed when I had the exact footprint of the base. The instructions were fairly straightforward and the build went ahead. The most complicated bit was the installation of the door frame. Instructions could have been more precise for this part as it is possible to get the measurements for the door incorrect, but nothing was said about the ANGLE of the separate parts and adjustments had to be made to get one of the doors to close properly. This was not easy as once the frame is attached it is difficult to get it apart again. We insulated the walls and roof and lined with tongue and groove timber for a cosy finish. This was then painted and carpet tiles installed. The end result is quite pleasing. One happy wife which is worth a kings ransom. Thank you.

    Pleased with my Summerhouse, apart from several knot holes that had fallen out and had to be filled and a couple of pieces of wood that were split on delivery. Now its been painted it looks lovely.

    Monday 25th April 2016

    My only comment pre-installation is the difficulty in reading the very small print in the instructions. Either send a larger hard copy or an electronic copy which can be enlarged. Otherwise the product was delivered satisfactorily and on time. Watch this space.

  • 4 out of 5   , Peacehaven, E.Sussex,England.

    Friday 18th March 2016

    This product does offer value for money but we were concerned that one of the doors is very warped. Similarly, two cover strips were second rate. One had snapped at the point of a knot and another had a long split at the top. Front decorative grooved strip also had a large chunk out of it. Despite this we are very pleased with the way it went together.

    Firstly, thank you One Garden for your excellent communication and Shire for the prompt delivery. The summerhouse is of good quality and value. Most manufacturers charge extra for a T&G floor but it comes standard and imho is a necessity. There is a lot of prep work to do such as 2-3 coats of preserver and Cuprinol doesn't come cheap at 2 tins at 30 pounds, but if you want longevity you need to invest.You could buy a pressure treated summerhouse but you may not like the colour and they are more expensive. Assembly is fairly straight forward until the roof which proved awkward. It is a cross between pent and pitch but worth the effort. At the price point and with careful prep and assembly a very good looking Summerhouse.

  • 5 out of 5   , .

    Sunday 13th September 2015

    We are very pleased with how the summerhouse looks now that it has been completed and painted and in use. It looks good and it is just what we wanted. There were some issues with construction such as a couple of nails that were protruding through the wood and the roof needed some effort and modification, however on the whole we are delighted with the finished product.
