Darren, an area manager for a major supermarket, downsized to a two-bedroom bungalow and sought renovation options….

Dissatisfied with a previous conservatory, he considered getting a garden room instead. After researching online, he chose Horto Garden Rooms due to their personalised approach and advice on maximising available space. Horto’s deposit policy, which required payment only four weeks before work began and was backed by a guarantee, reassured Darren. The planning and installation stages went smoothly, with Darren appreciating the team’s attention to detail and clear communication.

Originally intended for guests, the 6 x 3.5m garden room became Darren’s TV and games room upon installation. Furnished with a beer fridge, arcade game, and comfortable seating, Darren now enjoys watching football without his wife getting bored. As someone who works from home, he also included an office area with a mobile partition. Darren is extremely pleased with the garden room’s energy efficiency, noting that it can be warmer than his house without using a radiator. In contrast, their previous conservatory was unusable for half the year due to the cold. Additionally, the garden room cost £5,000 less than an equivalent conservatory.

Darren is thrilled with his garden room, spending hours in it daily, even during winter. He considers himself the envy of his neighbours and appreciates Horto’s reliable aftercare. He is confident that if any issues arise in the future, the Horto team will promptly address them. Darren believes that such peace of mind is invaluable.
