Sustainably Sourced Timber
The timber used for this product was obtained from a managed resource, where responsible forest management and re-planting are employed.
Professional Installation (optional)
Where offered, for an extra charge, professionals will come to install the product. Customer to provide an an appropriately sized, firm and level base.
The process where a timber component is exposed to a preservative by immersion in an open tank or by deluge spray booth.
Shiplap Tongue & Groove
A tongue & groove boarding offering a smooth planed finish. Each upper face is shaped with a shallow curve to offer a shiplap, overlapping appearance.
OSB (Oriented Strand Board)
Oriented Strand Board also known as OSB. Layers of wood flakes set within a glue-like resin, compressed into a solid sheet. Common in sheds.
Mineralized Roofing Felt
A garden building roofing felt in its commonest form. Coated externally with small stone flakes or grit to deter the effects of weathering.
A single sheet of non-toughened standard glass, most often used in garden buildings like summerhouses and sheds.
A simple, non-locking way to secure a gate or garden building. Operated by a basic twisting action, easy to open. Style and design may vary by product.
The Shire Hampton Summerhouse would make a stylish addition to any garden.
Designed to be placed into a corner, with all of the outward facing walls being glazed or part glazed to allow maximum daylight to flood into the building.
The double doors and the flanking windows are glazed in the Georgian style, with many small square windows.
The Hampton Summerhouse is made from tongue and groove cladding to the walls and floor. The roof panels are solid sheet boarding.
Mineralized felt is supplied to cover the roof and full instructions, fixtures and fittings are provided as standard.
While it is designed for placement in 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.
The Shire Hampton 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.
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 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.
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.
The only offshore location Shire deliver to is the Isle of Wight; PO30-41. A green zone delivery charge applies to this island.
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).
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.

I was disappointed with the quality and attention to detail on the summerhouse. The door catch is very poor quality and does not keep the door shut tight so had to buy a better one. The felt for the roof is very light weight, not sure how long it will last

Excellent all round, delivery man gave me some tips on building the summerhouse. Also the whole process was reasonably easy as long as you take your time and build step by step. 2 people required to assemble the sides and roof. Trickiest but was felting the roof, it would be nice if the felt was in pieces that were shaped rather than one long roll but apart from that everything was 5 star.

Very pleased with final result. Had a few issues along the way, we had some parts missing but phoned up and they were sent within the week. When we hung one of the doors it was incredibly bowed so again we phoned up and it was sent quite quickly. Ended up delaying the whole build but now very pleased it’s finished.

Very helpful staff when Ordering item. My joiner took 2 whole days to erect the summerhouse - one of the vertical posts was bowed and he had to buy another piece of wood. When assembling the roof panels, they would not go together and the whole building kept moving out of place, therefore, he had to make various adjustments so it would slide together as best possible. He felt that the panels had just been made and not checked that all the measurements were 100%. Any less qualified person would not have been able to erect this so the finish was satisfactory. However, after all his hard work, I am very pleased with the design.

Good quality construction. Delivered with all parts. Delivery driver was a bit grumpy, he didn't want to carry it the 20 yrds through to the end of the drive. Apparently when my 73 year old Mother-in-law started to carry the panels through, it shamed him into helping! Included plenty of screw/pins etc. Roof felt provided, just beware of the pointed corners on the roof as it easily rips it. A few extra pains of glass which is useful. It took us about 8 / 9 hours for 2 of us to assemble and fully glaze. One complaint (hence 4 stars) is the gate latch, the spindle isn't long enough for door thickness, also nowhere to position the latch guide. But it looks great when painted. Would recommend.

Recently purchased the Shire Hampton 8x8 Summerhouse and very pleased we did. An excellent construction and looks great in our garden, all ready for the spring. One Garden were excellent to deal with and provided good instructions (be sure to read carefully for preparation and future care). Worth looking at the colour ranges as well, we did and very pleased with the results. Even if you are good at DIY i would recommend having it constructed for you. We were going to do it ourselves, so glad we let them do it. The two very pleasant gentleman that delivered our summerhouse did a great job despite the weather not being very nice. They explained about aftercare and ensured everything was good before leaving. Great summerhouse, great price, highly recommend it, many thanks to all.

Reasonably pleased overall. Build quality leaves a bit to be desired. Too many nails have missed their mark and been left protruding into the summerhouse. Have had to remove them as some could have caught a hand or arm, not nice. One roof section of two pieces of board, the internal batten missed the join completely so had to fix that. A cross batten carrying a window was too loose so the window frame can move up and down. As a design and manufacturing engineer, I know mistakes get made but they should not be supplied to the customer. Check it, if it's incorrect, either rectify or replace. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Sincere apologies that you received parts which should have been identified during the manufacturers' quality process prior to their delivery to you. We will duly convey your feedback to them.)

This summer house is a great size, easy to erect and looks great. The only thing I would have done differently? It says you can build straight into paving but we are finding damp patches where it's drawing the water through. Going to try and lift it to elevate it and get something underneath it. The annoying thing is that we were ready to build onto something but decided not to due to this instruction. Plus a piece wood was split and glued? Better for the customer to replace before delivery. We contacted them and they replaced immediately. Good customer service and quick delivery. Would use again but make sure it's placed on waterproof material.

Summerhouse says 8x8 ft but in fact its about 6" smaller. Went together very well apart from one slightly distorted door. Inside frame finished very well. Its erected & painted with very simple landscaping around it, in fact can't stop looking at it Shire Hampton Summerhouse is a very attractive design. Good value, great service from One Garden. Will mark as a 5 * despite of the couple of issues, can't fault One Garden certainly would recommend them. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Shire designate this model with a generic "8x8" reference, therefore you are correct in that it is marginally smaller than say a full 8x8 feet. This is confirmed by our 'Detailed Measurements' in the specifications tab being; 7'8 external (roof) and 7'5 footprint (wall). If you still need a replacement door do let us know.)

Arrived on time and delivered by a helpful driver. The summerhouse is well made and good value. However, quality control could be a bit better. Found a few nails sticking through which missed their target and a few splits in pieces of wood that needed patching up prior to assembly. Would still recommend and would buy again if need be.
