Now that winter is upon us, relaxing in the garden might not seem like the greatest idea - however, if you had enough room for all of your comforts maybe it might.
With many of us still working from home and companies more inclined to consider remote working strategies, some people are opting to transforming their gardens into practical working spaces.
Now, getting into the nitty gritty, garden pods are the new smart spaces, pricier than your traditional outhouse or garden seating area; but with a range of cool features. They come in many forms and can be multi functional, depending on what you'll be using the space for.
The price point for garden pods can get steep, with prices starting at around £2,000, but easily able to exceed £10,000. For these kinds of prices you can expect a fully bespoke pod, with everything to your taste and needs.
At a glance, popular options are Farmer's Cottage Pods available at John Lewis and Ornate Garden's unique Wheel Bench.
We've rounded up the best of the bunch for every budget below.
