The Hampton range by Sanctum Garden Studios is one of the most popular small garden room ranges. There are many reasons for this popularity, such as the price tag of £5,995 inc VAT for the 2.4m x 2.4m model and £6,995 inc VAT for the larger 3m x 2.4m model. It can also be built in just one day, so it is a quick way to get a new room in the garden.
Another reason it has grown in popularity is that it can be built close to the boundaries of your garden. Maximising the space, you have available.

Permitted Development & Building Regulation friendly
Sanctum Garden Studios have designed the Hampton to be Permitted Development friendly. Because it is less than 2.5m tall, it can, under the Permitted Development rules, be positioned within 2 meters of any boundary line. If it were taller than 2.5m high, it would need to be positioned at least 2 meters from each boundary, or you would need to apply for Planning Permission.
Garden studios that are bigger than 15sqm in size would need to comply with Building Regulations or be sited at least 1m away from any boundary. The two Hampton models are much smaller than 15sqm, being 5.26sqm and 7.2sqm respectively. This means they don't need to comply with the Building Regulation rules and positioning.
Not much extra space is needed to build a Hampton garden studio
Sanctum Garden Studios have designed the Hampton range, so that little extra space is needed to build the studio. Minimal extra space in addition to the footprint size of the building, is required to accommodate the roof overhang.
- The 2.4m x 2.4m model requires an area of 2.8m wide by 2.75m deep to be built.
- The 3m x 2.4m model requires an area of 3.4m wide by 2.75m deep to be built.
The shallow eaves detail on the roof can butt up pretty tight to a wall, as this photo shows.
Make your mark with your choice of colour
If you are looking for something contemporary, you could choose dark grey walls with matching grey door and window frames. If you want something a little more traditional, the stone colour walls with oak effect doors and windows might fit the bill.
With both colourways, there is the option to add Cedar panels to one or both side walls. This addition can really lift the style of the Hampton.
