Boulton & Paul Summerhouses

Mushroom of Farnham are the country’s leading restorers of Boulton and Paul revolving summerhouses.

Restoring these classic garden buildings isn’t simple; it requires a real commitment to quality workmanship to maintain the original features and fittings. Our workshop staff pride themselves in giving these superbly made garden antiques a second life.

Boulton and Paul manufactured a number of different revolving summerhouse models at their factory in Norwich; we often have various examples undergoing restoration or available to purchase.

Follow the restoration.

We actively encourage clients to follow the restoration of their chosen Boulton and Paul revolving summerhouse.

As a committed buyer you will be invited to our workshop to meet the restorer and follow the process.

When the time comes you will then be able to choose paint colours and any additional features you may require.

The cost of the summerhouses reflects the man hours spent on the restoration but also varies dependent on the rarity of the model. We currently have summerhouses ranging from £4500 to £12900.

If we do not have the model you require you are welcome to place your name on a waiting list; if we cannot obtain it immediately we will contact you when we do.
