Pavilions of splendour

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?
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

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.
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 30year guarantee against rot and decay.
It’s no wonder that Crown Pavilions
is the first choice when it comes to
commissioning a garden room.
