TestimonialsWhat our customers have said about us
Mick and Buffy, KingstonJust wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Gary & the team for planning & installing our lovely studio. To say we’re pleased with it is an understatement. Everyone who has seen it, including our garden designer, is highly envious & a few have said they are going to look into getting one too. Thanks also for being so flexible with working around the landscaping work, it was much appreciated. We would readily recommend Sanctum to anybody.Andy and Vicky, Long Ditton, Surrey
Brilliant garden studios and fantastic company! Sam and the team at Sanctum were great. Excellent communication throughout the design and build process. The building team were friendly, professional and very diligent in getting the studio completed. The build quality of the studio is very high and it’s a perfect addition to our garden.Tom, Birmingham
Chris and Anthony were lovely, and so efficient, please thank them again for me. My partner, a surveyor, came to see the studio on Tuesday evening, bringing his electrician friend who is going to sort out the power in the next couple of days. They were both very complimentary and the electrician made a comment about how well the electrics were set up - something about it being correct and that people often get it wrong . (Sorry I don’t recall exactly what he said, the technical details being outside my knowledge anyway! Point being that they were both impressed!)Jacqui, Bradford Upon Avon
From the moment I decided to go with Sam and Gary I knew it was the right decision. From the planning to the price and the build to the finish, we experienced great service, marvellous engagement and brilliant execution. When you want I spend something on a classy product and individual design, use them- they will not disappoint. We thank you for an area of our house and garden that we have reclaimed….with interest.
I just wanted to email to say that my office was completed yesterday and that I am very pleased with it! The guys that came were very friendly and efficient and all is well, thank you very much.Sebastian, High Wycombe
Very happy with the studio. Thanks for an awesome service and great product.Mark, Chorley
When it came to installation, the pre-planning process was meticulous and the logistics on the day (actually two days, as we elected for plasterboard finish) were flawless and the friendly team headed by Gary were efficient, polite yet unobtrusive. Now looking forward to spending many happy extra hours in our new outdoor space. Well done to all at Sanctum. Highly recommended product for anyone considering the same requirement.Jon, Milton Keynes
It’s great. And inexplicably, it makes the garden feel bigger. I don’t know how when it is such a small garden. I think it has created a series of ‘outside rooms’ and also by not being able to see the whole garden at one glance, it creates interest around the garden. It also blends in very well with the pavilion next to it. We now have a functioning toilet/utility space and air con/heating.
I have pretty much filled the space with all my studio gear. The recess for the plan chest and bookshelves worked perfectly. There isn’t a gnat’s hair’s breadth between the bookcase and the wall, but it fitted. At the other end of the studio is my jewellery work bench and alongside it a storage space for my paintings.
Thank you so much all of you. You made it look so easy - which means that you are all very good at it.Sehila and John, Bognor Regis
We are absolutely delighted with the Studio. I was particularly impressed with the care taken over the internal finish, with all the joins neatly sealed. It’s made the job of decorating so much easier. Thank you for all your help, and for such a fabulous product.Rachel, Camberley
We were so impressed with how hard the men worked in the freezing weather and are delighted with the result. Thanks once again.Helen, Surrey
We’re absolutely thrilled with our studio, by the way. It’s given us that extra bit of space we desperately needed and enabled us to continue running our business from home over the past 18 months. We really couldn’t be happier with it.Suzy, Hampshire
Having a Sanctum Garden Studio installed was a pleasant and simple process. The website made it easy to see the quality of the studios and the prices for a variety of sizes and optional extras. Sam and Gary were easy to contact via phone and email and were able to answer my questions quickly and easily. On the day of installation, I was astonished at how quickly the studio went up. Gary and his team worked tirelessly and finished ahead of schedule. It’s fair to say that, ahead of installation, our electrician had concerns about connecting up to the outside junction box of the studio rather than directly to its consumer unit inside. However, when they arrived to wire up they were delighted to see the quality of the work and materials used by Sanctum. Many thanks to you all!Gavin, Gloucester
I have waited a while before writing to see how well our studio has settled down and as you can see from the photos, it sits beautifully in my garden. We are currently using it as a gym and yoga studio. Regardless of the rain and cold weather it has been in constant use - the underfloor heating is a dream. The space is light, warm and secure, a quiet and dedicated space to work out or zone out in savasana! Gary and his team were a joy to work with, professional and meticulous - I still can’t believe it was completed in only two days. A very big thank you to you, Sam and Gary for delivering to our specific requirements. We are very happy, the studio has exceeded our expectations and I know it will continue to enhance our quality of life for many more years to come.May, Surrey
Michelle is currently using her garden studio for her cats to live in while she rebuilds her house. She’s told us: I would say that I love the studio. When I go to feed the cats, it is such a peaceful space and they have quite happily upped sticks and moved into it despite only ever living in our house before this. I always feel that if I lay down (there’s a sofa in there) I would drift off quite contentedly!Michelle, Ormskirk
We are really happy with the studio, it’s being painted tomorrow so I should be working in there by the start of next week. Please pass on my thanks to the installers, my (very pregnant) wife said they were totally professional and courteous which was reassuring for me as I was overseas for work when they came.Chris, London
From the start Sanctum Garden Studios were a pleasure to deal with, they were professional and answered all my questions. The team fitting the Studio arrived early and quietly got on with the job, with no disturbance to us or our neighbours. We love the Studio, it looks even better than the photos and we’ve had lovely comments about it.Suckie, Leeds
Gary and team were excellent. Courteous and professional, I’m delighted with the studio (as you predicted!)
Sanctum studios were a delight to deal with. Courteous, professional and quick to answer any questions prior to the build that I had. They erected my Hampton Garden studio in incredible time and can’t fault the workmanship or build quality. It looks even better in the flesh than in the photos. I’m amazed they are able to create and build this in such a short amount of time and for such a competitive price. All in all, I can’t recommend them highly enough.Dan, Reigate
The time went so quickly with Gary, Chris and Anthony. It’s all a bit of a blur. They’ve done a great job so just to get the garden landscaped now. I managed to get the tea the right colour by the way!!!Amanda, Guildford
I’m delighted with my fabulous new studio by Sanctum Garden Studios. I knew the design I wanted and Sam and Gary were so helpful in making my dream a reality. I can’t thank them and the team enough for their commitment and professionalism.Karen, Windermere
Just wanted you to know what a difference my garden office has made to my work life! Out of the house, away from household chores and noisy children. It’s beautifully warm, using only a small heater, even in February thanks to the insulation. Your service was faultless - from the planning to the installation. How your friendly, efficient team managed to build it in only six hours! I’m so pleased I used Sanctum Garden Studios. Thank you so much.John, Dorset
I absolutely love it. It is fantastically well designed – a really strong structure and the lads have done a grand job building it. I’m starting to fit it out and will send pictures once I’ve got it looking good. Thanks again.Scott, Fife
The Sanctum team worked like demons, fuelled only by vats of tea and coffee, to complete my Contemporary studio in under three days. Gary and the lads are a friendly, helpful bunch. When they found themselves with half an hour to spare, they helpfully filled in the soil on the trench I’d had dug for the electrical cable, even though there was no obligation to do so.
The finish on the studio both inside and out is absolutely superb and it looks like a magnificent piece of modern art in the garden. We’re having artificial turf laid this week, so I’ll send you over some photos of the finished effect. Thank you very much for your hard work. I can’t recommend Sanctum highly enough.Nigel, Chorley
Very pleased the way the studio was put up - the process was very smooth and organised. Attention to detail was first class.Graham, North Allerton
I am absolutely delighted with my new garden studio - two days after installation it was furnished and the electricity was connected - I had friends round in the evening to christen it. I was amazed at how hard Gary and his team worked - they were here for 10 hours on day one and all was complete by 11.30 on day two. They were great to have around and Gary was very helpful in answering any queries. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sanctum to friends and family - and indeed have already started doing so. Thanks Sam and Gary for making this a thoroughly positive experience!Claire, Ealing
It is nearly a year since installing out beautiful studio, and I can’t tell you how it has transformed how we use our garden. We have really enjoyed time down there, with the doors open, and the radio on. I use it daily, for my Yoga practice, treating clients and general chill out. Thank you once again, for such a lovely studio, Warmest regards.Chris and Karen Taylor, Nottingham
Sanctum is a great firm to deal with. Sam’s been really helpful answering queries and the quality of the build is excellent. Gary and his team worked very efficiently and professionally installing the unit, even in a downpour! I’d highly recommend Sanctum and I’m looking forward to having a lovely studio to work fromLiz, Cheltenham
The guys arrived early yesterday, worked very hard, showed great attention to detail and the finish of the final product. I was very interested in how it all gets installed / fits together and I hope they didn’t mind being watched and questioned. They explained everything I needed to know well and only consumed a few biscuits!! The job was all finished by about 2pm and I am very pleased with the result. Now its down to me to paint the inside and to make good use of the space. The whole process of ordering and taking delivery of the studio has been efficient and a pleasure. Many many thanks to you all.Chris, Liverpool
We’re absolutely delighted with our studio. It’s better than we ever could have imagined. Thank you!Suzy, Hampshire
I arrived home last night to finally see our wonderful studio in place. Very pleased with it and would like to thank you and the team for an excellent, smooth installation process. Many thanks once again.Vicky, Flintshire
Just to let you know I am thrilled to bits with the studio. Gary and Chris are so hard working and the end result is brilliant. Thank you for your help and the excellent service.Sarah, Hornchurch
I’m over the moon with it. It’s more than I was hoping for, and the team have been a pleasure to have around. Punctual, professional and completed the work to the highest standard. Thanks very much for all your help, is been great.Drew, Keighley
It was a pleasure dealing with Gary and team. They were friendly, professional and fast despite the terrible weather. We love the studio! Thanks again for a great product and great service.Alex, London
I chose the Hampton garden studio offered by Sanctum. It was competitively priced relative to other garden studios that were available. Sanctum were very flexible with regard to some minor design tweaks that I required to fit the studio tight up against a property boundary. The site team who constructed the studio did an excellent job and consulted with me throughout the build (which took only a few hours) to ensure I was happy with various aspects of the construction. I am very pleased with the quality of the final product and I believe it enhances our property as a whole, while giving me a quiet place to work when I need it.Duncan, Nottingham
The lads are so lovely they haven’t stopped. Wendy’s studio is nearly finished! I’m over the moon its absolutely beautiful. What a lovely experience from day 1.Wendy, Manchester
We’re absolutely delighted with our little garden studio, couldn’t be happier in fact! Special thanks indeed to your team yesterday who did a marvellous job installing it, all while I was at work! I’m looking forward to getting it painted and putting some furniture in it and will of course send you some photos when it’s complete. In the meantime please do post any photos you have on social media. Thanks again and best wishes
After almost non-stop rain since the team left yesterday afternoon (including the heaviest downpour I have seen for some time about 10 minutes after they left - good timing!), I am finally enjoying the studio in the sunshine - even better! It fits perfectly and looks great, and we are very happy with it so far. Lastly. I just wanted to say that Gary, Jack and Anthony did a brilliant job. They were competent, efficient and friendly (including to our dog!), and it was a real pleasure to have them here. You clearly run a great little company, and I am delighted I found you you and ordered from you. I wish you all the best.
Thank you so much for everything, the lads did an amazing job turning things around so quickly and they were all very friendly and approachable.
I’ve just been into our finished studio for the first time. We’re very pleased with the result and would like you to pass on our thanks to Gary and the team for their excellent (and speedy) work. We would be happy to recommend your services to others.
And from the wife!:
The studio is fab. Gary and his team were wonderful, and they worked so hard. It was a real shame that it rained that day, but it didn’t deter them. I’m really looking forward to moving in and will send a photo when we are installed.Mick and Buffy, Kingston
Just to say that we’re very pleased. Your team were amazing, and really nice too. We’re really impressed and will get painting later on today. Safe to say we love it and you’ll be heartily recommended whenever we get the opportunity.Michael, Chislehurst
Another good job team - well done!
I absolutely love it. Will instagram and tweet about it etc, and send pics when it’s got some furniture in it. Amazing job. I’ll recommend you to everybody I know.
I would like to send a big thanks for the most amazing job the team did. From the moment they arrived (on time), until the moment they departed (ahead of time), they were magnificent. Really lovely chaps all of them, and what a brilliant job. Even though your guys were here on the only inclement day for the last few weeks it did not deter them. in fact I think they preferred the rain to the sun…. There was a great atmosphere, and a few little extra bits were taken in full stride. It was a great pleasure to have them all here, and a wonderful garden room now sits proudly in our back garden.
Please pass on or gratitude to all the chaps.
The studio looks great, and the guys who came were a credit to your company.
The Sanctum Studios team delivered and erected our studio without any of the last minute problems that I had anticipated. They worked quickly and efficiently to get our studio installed and the finished job looks great. Thank you so much.
The studio is fantastic - we’re really pleased with it!Mark, Adlington
I just wanted to thank both you and the team from the day too. Experience has been fantastic and easy.Nico, East London
WOW what can I say both myself and my wife Jane are so very impressed with the professional and incredibly hard work both Chris and Anthony have put into our new Hampton Garden Room. It looks absolutely wonderful. The weather was very hit and miss but they carried on regardless. We can’t wait to equip it all out and get the rest of our landscaping done. Once again we can’t thank you all enough.Phil and Jane, Preston
From my very first call to Sam, right up to the finished article, your service, and meticulous attention to detail is a breath of fresh air, and very much appreciated.Michelle, Wigan
I would recommend the appointment of Sanctum Garden Studios for anyone wanting a quality multi-purpose garden building. From inception through the design stages to completion Sanctum acted in a professional manner and the whole operation was carried out without any problems. The actual construction on site took only 2 days before the building was usable.Peter Dickinson Architect, Wigan
Studio erected! Looks Fantastic! Thank You and your team for a such a professional, excellent addition to our property!Debbie, Rutland
We are ecstatic with our new garden studio, the friendly, personable and professional approach you are shown from the start makes Sanctum a breeze to deal with. We are thrilled with the studio and cannot wait to get it open for business with using it as a beauty salon. The process is so streamlined from enquiry to completion you really don’t have to do anything more and the studio’s quality is second to none, I have many the neighbour asking me where it came from. Thanks again Sam and Gary!
I cannot recommend you enough to family and friends.Laura & Dan, Liverpool
Many thanks for the fantastic garden room! It is fab, we are so pleased. The guys that installed the float pod were really impressed with the space!Sabrina, Chorley
Thank you so much, we love it! And my kids are in it every day swinging on the rings like Tarzan.May, Thames Ditton
We are absolutely delighted with our new garden studio. From our first enquiry to the end result the whole process was hassle free and professional. The team were very punctual and worked from the minute they arrived. It was amazing to see how quickly the studio was built but still attention to detail. It has been well admired by family, friends & neighbours. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Many thanks.Lorna & Raymond, Falkirk
I would like to thank you and the guys for a smooth and professional service from start to finish - I’m really pleased with the final product and the whole experience was superb - I would have no problems at all recommending you!Scott, Nantwich
Absolutely made up with our Garden office!
Sanctum have the best customer service from start to finish, really friendly and helpful and always there to answer any questions.
The product is amazing! Our Garden Office Studio looks fabulous and is exactly what we required. Very stylish and very comfortable. Our office is full of light and is of very high quality. Gary, Anthony, and Chris were super tidy, careful (as it came through the house to be installed)and work so well together and we cant believe how easy the whole process was. Thank you to you all as we are very happy and we would definitely recommend your studios and services to everyone! Much obliged. A very happy Shelley and Pat
We are thrilled with our garden studio and our experience from the very beginning of the process has been great.
The Sanctum website is straight forward and pricing is transparent - the cost for even the optional extras is available.
Whilst we were making our decision, Sam was friendly and helpful and readily responded to all questions, however small.
Gary and his team arrived punctually on the designated day and worked very efficiently, leaving our studio finished 1.5 days later.
Based on our experience, we would definitely recommend Sanctum.Amanda, Guildford
Guys were brilliant, you were brilliant, build is totally outstanding and we are so pleased. Everyone loves it. Thanks again. You guys are awesome!!Shelley, Southampton
I am absolutely delighted with it. The quality is even better than I had hoped, the team were fantastic - they worked hard and were friendly and helpful. Gary went the extra mile by ensuring that two small potential cat escape routes were blocked before they left!
Of course the whole process was made smooth by your own friendly support and advice, even when I changed my mind at least twice in the run up to production. It is rare that anyone or anything exceeds my expectations but you have managed it, so well done! I would recommend your company without reservation.Mo, Corfe Mullen
From the moment we made contact with Sanctum, their approach was both totally professional and friendly. The installation day went smoothly and the quality of the work and the attitude of the team could not have been bettered; they were a pleasure to have at our property. What really stood out at the end was their attention to detail and a determination to leave the studio immaculate. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sanctum.Mr and Mrs H, Hertfordshire
Just to say a big THANK YOU to you, Gary and Gareth for our lovely new den! We are delighted with our new room and it all sprung into place very quickly. Gary and Gareth worked extremely hard to finish it in a day and a half stopping only for a quick bite to eat! From the outset you have been very good to deal with and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone who may be considering purchasing a studio. Once again many thanks for a hassle free experience. Ps Photos to follow when it’s furnished .If anyone would like to come and view who may be thinking about a room,then they’re more than welcome!Robert and Joanne Roberts

Having dismissed other suppliers and what appeared to be their ‘glorified garden sheds’, Sanctum’s studios offered double-glazing and insulation along with a high standard of overall build quality and durability, combined with value for money, which easily swung our decision in their favour. Being located within a conservation village, the materials and finish, as well as an architectural style consistent with our house, were helpful in gaining the necessary planning permissions.
Sam was very helpful in organising a visit to a recently installed studio nearby, which convinced us how good the product actually was. A series of emails and photos maintained an ongoing dialogue addressing issues relating to planning, access, site-preparation and pre-constructional details about electrics and glazing, which helped make advance specification easy, so that we had no nasty surprises when the studio was delivered.
A delivery and construction date was helpfully arranged in advance to address the lengthy planning process, as well as fit in with our complicated holiday arrangements and most importantly, was adhered to, so ten out of ten to Sanctum for both service and organisation. Gary and the team duly arrived early on the appointed day with all the pre-fabricated components and within about five hours, we had an erected and operational garden studio. It was critical that the studio fitted exactly into the prepared site, so that there was no disruption to our garden planting and the team was very careful and tidy throughout the installation. One word of warning, they do like their tea and coffee so be prepared!
Now, about four months after completion, the studio is proving to be an excellent work-space. Although it is slightly smaller than her previous studio, the interior has been carefully planned to maximise space with shelving and storage units, fold-down trestle legs and table as well as large-scale easel, which offers a versatile working environment. We have also ordered an A1 size plan chest which will fit neatly in below the shelves. Jacqueline loves being able to just walk out of the house into a light and cosy environment within our lovely garden which has now grown up again around the studio, so that it now looks as if it has always been there.
We should also add that friends and neighbours are extremely impressed with what is in fact, a superb addition to our house. We would not hesitate in recommending Sanctum, and indeed, we have already done so, to anyone interested in a superb quality garden studio at a very reasonable price. A very big thanks to all at Sanctum!Ron and Jacqueline, Edinburgh
We are absolutely over the moon with the new studio! I’m like an excited child at Christmas. Gary and the team did an amazing job, lovely chaps and incredibly professional. Also a very nice touch to have my name printed in side the pains of glass ( ask Gary!) Many thanks for all your work on this Sam, I have to say the whole process has been a joy from start to finish, may your company continue to flourish and don’t be surprised if you get more orders from around my way!Tudor, Ealing
