Will Your Garden Room Bar Need Planning Permission?

One of the best things about our garden room bars is that, in most cases, they do not require any planning permission or building regulations. Garden rooms are generally classed as outbuildings, so one can be built as long as you follow certain rules.

  1. Your garden room bar is not in front of your house.
  1. The total area of your garden room bar does not cover over 50% of the land around your home. 
  1. Your garden room bar is a single-storey build and is also less than 3 metres high.
  1. The eaves of your garden room bar are not raised more than 2.5 metres over ground level.
  1. There is no balcony or raised area.
  1. It is not fitted to be a self-contained living space, i.e. with plumbing.

As long as your garden room bar complies with the rules above, there should be no need for it to have planning permission beforehand. If you are unsure of where your garden room bar complies, and whether or not you will need planning permission before we can go ahead with your project, check out our essential guide for planning permission.

Your Garden Room Bar Options

The Pub Garden – set aside the garden shed and set up your very own local, right outside your back door. With a dark-wood finish, some ornate wall lamps and a trusty pool table, you can bring the pub garden to you. Open the doors wide and crack open a cold one in the summer, or bring in your roast dinner and light your wine bottle candles on a chilly winter’s night.

The Cocktail Bar – if the pub is not your scene, maybe you prefer an outdoor space that is more bespoke and stylish. A place to impress your friends and get the party going in the evening. Your very own cocktail bar might be the perfect way to deck out your garden room. 

The Bistro – Keep it modern with some neon wall hangings, or drape some fairy lights for some added sparkle. Then source some ornate gold frames and velvet furnishings to give the space some added class. Last but not least, make sure your bar is stocked full of spirits and tasty mixers, dried fruits, fresh mint, and cocktail shakers.

The Poolhouse – with a pool already taking pride of place in your garden, you may have limited space for a pub or bar, but our garden rooms can be designed to fit most garden spaces, with or without a swimming pool. So why not try the poolhouse approach to designing the interiors of your garden room bar? Our Dallington range features windows that fully surround your garden room, giving it an open, conservatory feel, which is perfect for a poolside getaway. You could also set up some small tables and convert your poolhouse bar into a games room.

How long will my garden room bar last?

When you buy a garden room bar from English Heritage Buildings Ltd., you are investing in the best quality and the most secure end product. We are Q-Mark certified by BM TRADA, which means the wider industry recognises us as leaders in the market for our services and construction.

Will my garden room bar be insulated?

All of our garden room bars come with a range of insulation options to keep your space habitable all year round. We offer quilt insulation, which provides adequate insulation for small spaces, and can be fitted between the rafters of your garden room bar. Another option, to reduce the shrinkage of your oak frame, is Structural Insulated Panels (or, SIPs) – these are normally installed outside of your garden room bar.

For more information on our insulation options and who to contact, read our in-depth guide.

How does English Heritage Buildings Ltd. guarantee quality?

The main structure of our garden room bars are built using the best quality green oak. This is because of how sturdy it is against wear and tear, and how, as it ages, it only gets stronger. This is thanks to oak’s closed grain. Rot and decay are also prevented with the help of the wood’s naturally occurring tannins.

Our frames also have a positive impact on the environment. Oak is already the ideal building material when it comes to sustainability, but we make sure that all of our timber is sourced from managed woodlands – which means a minimum of two trees are planted every time one is felled.

If you’d like to learn more about our timber and oak framed garden rooms, or have any further questions, our FAQs page may have the answers you’re looking for.
