avilions of splendour

hat do Champneys’ spas,

Duncan Bannatyne, Gloria

Hunniford, the King of Luxembourg

and hundreds of householders have

in common? All have commissioned

a luxury garden room from Oxfordshire-based

Crown Pavilions.

Indeed, across the world, discerning

homeowners agree that when it

comes to taking delivery of a garden

room that’s a cut above the rest, it

has to be Crown.

Why is a Crown garden

building so different?

The sheer variety in the Crown collection

is breathtaking – from lavish

entertainment spaces through

to sumptuous bespoke pavilions

that are more like a second home.

With Crown, a garden room can be

anything you desire: a home office,

spa or pool enclosure, tennis pavilion

or home cinema, equipped with

creature comforts including comfy

sofas, dining suites, bars, food preparation

areas, surround-sound systems

and more.

But a Crown garden room isn’t just

for the summer; it is engineered for

year-round comfort. Many designs

come with double-glazing and bi-fold

doors plus full insulation and underfloor

heating. Blinds and soft furnishings

are made from mould-resistant

marine-grade acrylic canvas which

won’t rot or fade over time. The deepfilled

cushions are unbelievably comfy;

even the zips and toggles are in a

different league. Additionally, each

pavilion is hand-crafted in Oxfordshire

by skilled craftsmen.

Why choose Crown?

Crown’s mission to consistently go

‘above and beyond the call’ results

in products that surpass anything

else on the market, right down to

the smallest detail. You won’t find

any knots in the timber cladding, for

example. Handrails are wider and

thicker, and all posts are laminated

up to 12 times to minimise warping

or cracking. Buildings are also

installed on special rubber pads so

none of the timber is in direct contact

with the base, thus resisting rot.

For roofs and walls, Crown insists

on Western red cedar (recognised for


A Crown garden room isn’t just for the summer;

it is engineered for year-round comfort.

its superb water-resistant qualities)

or premium-grade, laminated European

redwood. Doors and windows

are made from premium solid timber

to stand the test of time, without a

uPVC frame in sight. Finally, each

building undergoes scrutiny from a

chartered structural engineer to ensure

that everything is the correct


size and in the right place, with a 30-

year guarantee against rot and decay.

It’s no wonder that Crown Pavilions

is the first choice when it comes to

commissioning a garden room.
