'We are over the moon with our garden room! Thank you to you all, Trevor and your fantastic team.'
Staffordshire, February 2019
'Thank you for a great job, we are very impressed with the way the work was carried out and the care and attention taken.'
Nottingham, December 2018
“We are delighted with the garden room. Thank you for a very professional and speedy job!!"
Tunbridge Wells, August 2018
“Many Thanks to Trevor and his team for our fantastic garden studio. It has far exceeded our expectations. From start to finish the communication and professionalism was first class. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We love our new studio and will be sure to recommend to many of our clients.”
'We chose Crusoe Garden Rooms as they didn't have a flashy sales team and just good old fashioned answers to our queries before taking the plunge and ordering one. Having not being able to decide quite what we wanted, Trevor let us pick bits that we liked to to create our own garden room. Trevor and his team work like a well oiled machine and obviously know what they are doing - and it was definately the right choice from start to finish. The only decision now is whether to stick with the grass out the front or go for patio or decking ..... '
West Sussex, June 2018
'Our new garden room is a thing of beauty and we are thrilled with it and it looks lovely and sits well in our garden. Trevor and team were helpful and accommodating at every point of the build from start to finish. We are very pleased we took the plunge. Go for it - you won’t regret it.'
Lincolnshire, April 2018
'From our very first interest in having a garden room, Trevor, Emma and the team have provided an excellent service throughout; our room was made to a bespoke size, to accommodate a ¾ size snooker table. We are very impressed by the quality, workmanship and punctuality in undertaking and completion of the works and have had many compliments from friends and family; We would not hesitate in recommending Crusoe Garden Rooms.'
Nottinghamshire, May 2018
'I must say from start to finish the whole procedure was a pleasure to experience from the visit with the initial quote right through to the final snagging and completion. Unfortunately Crusoe Rooms did not have the design myself and my wife liked but this was not a problem as they accommodated exactly what we wanted and I must say we are completely satisfied with not just the service but also the finished product. All in all no problem with service but also no matter what was requested it was supplied without any issues!! Great service and great installation team.'
Nottinghamshire, June 2017
'We just wanted to say a big thank you to Trevor and the team who were professional and engaging throughout the build process. We were able to work with Trevor to adapt the build onsite, with additional lighting and electrics going in last minute - nothing was a problem for the team! We’ve been left with a stunning garden room which we can’t wait to put to good use - thanks again!'
Surrey, November 2017
'...very pleased with all of the work the lads did for us. They’re a great team and kept us informed of everything along the way. It’s been built exactly as we wanted it and we’re now looking forward to furnishing it and adding the finishing touches... Thanks to all of you for everything.'
UPDATE JUNE 2018 'Everything is going really well up here, all the people who have stayed in the garden room have loved it and thought it was a great style and design.'
Yorkshire, November 2017

Welwyn Garden City, October 2017
Nottinghamshire, October 2017
'I am absolutely delighted with our garden room. From the moment I met Trevor through to completion I had confidence in him and his team. It was a pleasure to see the craftsmanship and attention to detail as the build progressed swiftly each day. Highly recommended.'
'We are delighted with our new garden room. The whole process was very slick from beginning to end. Crusoe started when they said they would and the whole thing was complete within 2 weeks. The team were very professional, organised and tidy. There was absolutely no disruption at all and we were left with no mess whatsoever. The materials used are of high quality and the finish is very good. I would highly recommend them.'
Leicestershire, September 2017
"In a world where you seem to be constantly let down by contractors it was so refreshing to find a company that not only stuck to timescales provided but completed the work in such a professional way that they exceed your expectations. From our very first meeting with Trevor we felt very much at ease and that nothing would be too much trouble. This was proven throughout the build despite various changes we requested and the end result was beyond our own very high expectations. If considering building a garden room then you should look no further than Trevor and his team at Crusoe. We are certain you will not be disappointed. Thanks to Trevor and all his team for building our dream."
Essex, September 2017
"It has been a while since you came to build our wonderful garden room and I wanted to provide you with a testimonial as we have been so pleased with what you have created. I spoke to a number of companies during my research and from the moment I spoke to you I was sure you and your company would give me what I wanted. Nothing was ever too much trouble, you were happy to accomodate whatever we wanted and even during the build was flexible to build something extra. This is what quality customer service is like, it didnt feel like a job for you it felt like you wanted to create something we would be happy with and feel good about the whole experience and we did. Since you left we have been busy finishing off the room, still some way to go but we have been busy enjoying the room this whole summer. My daughter now has somewhere to go when her friends are round, I have somewhere to have friends to socialise with and we have a family and entertaining room all in one for when we have weekends free. We have used the garden 1000% more than ever because of this, thank you so much."
Essex, March 2017
"I viewed Crusoe Garden Rooms online and looked at the reviews and they looked very good, I contacted the owner Mr Trevor Naylor and made an appointment to come to his house to visit his own garden room. On meeting with Trevor there were no sleazy sales tactics, what the product has to offer speaks for itself - quality.
Through the planning and design Trevor was extremely helpful and offered some great advice he has gained from past builds. Even after the initial design was completed Trevor was flexible and allowed me to make changes to the build.
I found all of the guys working for Trevor to be very polite and courteous, I had many questions during the build and at all stages of the build they were extremely helpful in explaining each stage of the build ...each day the site was cleaned and left clean and tidy.
As the days passed the garden room was built and the finish was beyond my wildest dreams, what looks like a show home in my back garden!! I couldn’t be happier!!
There is nothing more satisfying than dealing with honest and open people who have pride in the quality of their product and Crusoe Garden Rooms deliver quality which is so refreshing in this day and age. There are few family businesses around at the moment everything is run by corporate larger companies who are difficult to deal with and much of your money goes on expensive showrooms or sales personnel. Crusoe don’t work this way as it's a family business - they believe in the quality of the work and testimonials to define the quality of the service they provide.
Many thanks to Trevor, Emma, Jack and Fred for giving me such an impressive garden room!!"
Lincoln, May 2017
"Many thanks for a superb, smooth, professional job. Always left clean and tidy after each day and everyone was super polite and helpful! Really happy!"
Stamford, May 2017
"I am so happy with my garden room and it looks even better than I had hoped. I have a small garden so went for the Crusoe Compact and it is perfect for the space, while still feeling quite roomy. Trevor and the rest of the team were really great - friendly, helpful, always keeping me informed and also offering a few good suggestions (I'm looking forward to putting pots of flowers on the step!). I would highly recommend them and can't wait to start using my garden room!"
London, March 2017
"Thanks to you for all your hard work. Really pleased with the finished product."
Nottingham, January 2017
"We had a wonderful experience with Crusoe Garden Rooms. The team were incredibly friendly, helpful and professional - answering all our questions and accommodating the changes we wanted to make to create a really personal and useful space. On-site they were tidy and self-contained, and worked with impressive speed and attention to detail. The finished product is a very attractive feature in our garden, and a high quality, practical space for our family. We would recommend them without hesitation - and have already to several friends. Thank you!"
Surrey, October 2016
“We contacted Crusoe to discuss our slightly ‘different’ project in March. Our plan was to install a swim spa at the bottom of our garden and build a contemporary garden building around it. We discussed the build project with 3 companies but chose Crusoe as we were impressed with the flexibility of the design and build. For us, the fact that Crusoe build everything on site and not in prefabricated sections, meant we could apply a lot of flexibility to the build. We were particularly impressed with Crusoe’s ‘can do’ approach to this unique project.
The swim spa was set 40cm into the ground with an inspection pit around it – this meant that Crusoe had to incorporate a false floor, that could also be removed for access. The room measures 6.5m x 4m with a separate 2m x 2m store room to the side.
Trevor, Jack & Freddie carried out the build with the highest levels of professionalism, skill and consideration and the project was completed on time. We are absolutely delighted with the end result and cannot thank Crusoe enough for all the help in making our dream become a reality ! Many thanks again Trevor for all yours and the teams help and great work!! “
Nottingham, September 2016
Bristol, September 2016
"Trevor has been fantastic to work with, right from the first email, the first site visit, thru to talking me thru how things work (windows, doors, underfloor heating, electrics etc) at the end and has made the whole process incredibly easy and good fun. I had originally planned to try and ‘manage it myself’ and organise different bits of the building from different sources but I am so pleased I went for the ‘easy option’ of asking Crusoe to do it for me. A little bit more money but worth every extra penny and a finished product which I am very happy with.
The team were so easy to have around, and just got on with the building work without any difficulties at all. It was lovely to see it taking shape, but also to be included in the ‘last minute’ decisions needed on placing sockets, plumbing, lights etc which made it all the more personal. Deliveries of materials over the last couple of weeks was very easy, with Trevor being on the ball about everything that was going on - notifying me of what was happening day by day. The ‘boys’ worked quickly, quietly and efficiently and it all looks fantastic. The site was left in a good clean state too which really helped, and apart from a bit of landscaping around the building which we want to do it is all ready to go. So exciting... Thank you!"
"Our garden room is absolutely brilliant - we love how peaceful it is and have enjoyed spending time in here every day since it was built. We cannot praise Trevor, Jack and the team highly enough for their professionalism, attention to detail and customer service. We initially made contact with Trevor after seeing Crusoe Garden Rooms online and he was very accommodating in listening to what we wanted to use the room for and helping us design the best room to fit in the space we had. This consultation process was really helpful as at first we were unsure which shape to go for but after meeting with Trevor a couple of times we decided on an L shaped room which nestles into the trees at the bottom of the garden. The space is so versatile and has already been used as...An office, TV room, yoga studio, glamping pod! and darts room. The whole build from start to finish took just over 2 weeks with minimal mess and disruption. We are very happy with the result and will enjoy using our beautiful new room for years to come. Thank you!"
Nottingham, July 2016
"The build really did go well, we are so pleased with the end result, and can't wait to get the decking down and bathroom installed to finish it all off. The end product looks fantastic, but also the whole service from start to finish has been so easy, thank you so much. It's lovely to see such a family business."
Suffolk, June 2016
"Marking our silver wedding anniversary with a new garden room was a big decision – any building project can end up being difficult and stressful and we didn’t want to spoil the occasion.
We needn’t have worried once we’d chosen Crusoe Garden Rooms – we felt very much at ease after Trevor made the considerable round trip for a site visit and the build itself ran like clockwork: deliveries were on time, Trevor, Jack and Fred worked tirelessly and the build was completed a day ahead of schedule (in glorious sunshine, which wasn’t part of the deal but very welcome!).
Wine o’clock with just the decking lights on and the garden sinking into darkness on a sunny summer evening underscored just how delighted we are with our Studio. This is exactly what we wanted: there’s no ‘window dressing’ of the website pictures, the finished product really is that good.
We would recommend Crusoe Garden Rooms without hesitation and wish them every success in the future. Our thanks to the whole team – it was a genuine pleasure doing business with you."
Durham, June 2016
"We are delighted with the room and have already had some admiring comments from our friends. Please thank Trevor and the team for the fabulous workmanship, the tidy, efficient, polite and professional way in which they approached the project."
Kent, April 2016
"It all went up so quickly and looks fantastic."
London, January 2016
"What can I say, I am absolutely delighted with my new Garden Room/Office. I so needed a suitable space to work from home - and Trevor and the guys have transformed an old and very battered utility space into a beautiful home office. The design is very bespoke to my specific requirements, and is finished to a very high standard. The workmanship and attention to detail is fantastic. Would HIGHLY recommend Crusoe Garden Rooms. A huge Thank You."
Nottingham, February 2016
"On a few occasions I noticed a few of our other trades watching you working perhaps not only admiring the garden room taking shape, but also your team’s work ethic. Of all the people we have dealt with on this build your company is probably the best we've dealt with. The difference between yourselves and the others is you enjoy what you do and are exceedingly good at it so don't change the formula and it has been a pleasure dealing with you because you've just got on and delivered as you said you would … both my wife and I have been impressed by your team’s enthusiasm, willingness to accommodate our requests and overall professionalism so well done."
Yorkshire, December 2015
"Thanks for a great job, much appreciated - looks great."
Derbyshire, December 2015
"Crusoe Garden Rooms were nothing other than professional, delivering a finished product that is for us simply stunning. Unlike so many other trades, the team headed up by Trevor, were punctual and courteous, not to mention the level of cleanliness that they adopt whilst on site. They work incredibly hard with a real sense of pride and getting the work done to the highest standard. Their response to queries at all times was very quick, being flexible to changes in plan and other trades that I had working with them. We wouldn't hesitate recommending them or using their services again in the future."
Essex, November 2015
"Trevor and his team worked really efficiently and had my garden room finished in four and a half days - they were quick, clean and tidy and very helpful. They even added an extra window for me when they saw the lovely view into the field behind. I would not hesitate to recommend Crusoe Garden Rooms.”
East Sussex, March 2015
"Thanks for everything you've been great to deal with, I am very pleased with the end result and wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services should anyone ask."
London, August 2015
"When searching around for an item such as summer house, which is probably something you'll only buy once in your life, you really don't want to get to the end of the project and think 'I wish I had done things differently'. Fortunately for us, we don't have that problem.
I priced up several different companies who offer to build luxury cedar clad garden studios, the choice is always difficult but in the end plumped for Trevor. You can be sure your money is in safe hands here. The boys arrived and from the start offered a professional, speedy and high quality build without any hesitation to the bespoke changes I required. Highly recommended. Thank you!"
Somerset, July 2015
"We can honestly say, getting a garden room has completely changed how we use our garden, it's been like getting an extension, with half the mess. We looked at lots of companies, did lots of research on the Internet. At first we liked Crusoe Garden Rooms because they were a local firm, with good reviews. After meeting Trevor we knew we had made the right decision, and knew he would ensure we got the garden room, we were hoping for. Trevor and his team worked so well together, they were very professional throughout. I can wholeheartedly recommend Crusoe Garden Rooms, they are an excellent team to work with."
Mansfield, June 2015
"What has impressed me most is the high quality finish and attention to detail. The team could not have done any more to meet the brief. Always courteous and full of helpful ideas. I would recommend CGR Ltd to anyone thinking of building a garden studio."
Hertfordshire, February 2015
"I can fully recommend Crusoe Garden Rooms, the team were
very professional and polite and the build quality high.
Nothing was too much trouble! “
Ross-on-Wye, April 2015
"After a lot of research my wife and I chose Crusoe Garden Rooms to build our home gym as they seemed to offer value for money, a quality product and were members of the Guild of Master Craftsmen. We were not disappointed. Communication from the outset was excellent and from the moment Trevor and his team arrived to start the job they were nothing other than professional completing the job to a very high standard within three and a half days. We are delighted and would recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a quality garden room."
Cheshire, April 2015
"I am sorry this has taken so long to reply to. I just wanted to send you a photo of the completed garden room and say that it really has changed my life!
I was so impressed by the team, their professionalism, speed and the quality of the build. We have had the garden room now for nearly a year and it still looks as superb as the day it was built. It is just simply stunning. Thanks.”
Exeter, June 2014
"I am absolutely over the moon with my garden office. The whole process could not have gone more smoothly from start to finish and it was a pleasure to have Trevor, Jack and Jude around the house for the period of the build. I would thoroughly recommend Crusoe to anyone thinking of having a Garden Office built – in fact I already have."
Surbiton, January 2015
"We recently had work carried out by Crusoe and we would like to recommend them to other interested people. I cannot over emphasise how pleased we are with everything. The design, the quality of work, the attitude of the workmen and how well the stages of the work dovetailed together. It was not a straightforward build with all our extra problems but everything was carried out perfectly and attention to detail was second to none. We would not hesitate to recommend Crusoe to tackle any job and would be willing to show our building (by prior arrangement) to anyone nearby who was considering using the company for a building."
Stoke-On-Trent, October 2014
"We would like to thank Trevor, Jack & Rob on our amazing new Garden Studio, a job well done! We were kept well informed throughout the build and as it progressed were able to adapt the original plan to suit the studio’s eventual purpose of a beauty treatment room.
Our new business has now started and to a person each client has commented on how good it looks, we highly recommend Trevor and his team as genuine and honest craftsmen who take great pride in their work. THANK YOU!"
Stamford, September 2014
"I have had a beautiful Crusoe Garden Room built to use as a Physiotherapy Clinic, and I love it!
All my patients comment on its style and quality. It fits in unobtrusively with the garden and its surroundings.
The Crusoe folk are all extremely friendly, kind and hard working.
I would highly recommend them and have done so already to a number of people.
Many thanks to Trevor, Emma and co.”
Nottingham, October 2014
"Thank you Crusoe team we now have a very versatile space which will give us plenty of options (a den for the kids, hobby room for us & short stay for family/friends) for many years to come.
We were very impressed by Trevor’s knowledge and ideas in the planning stages, which obviously comes with experience.
The Crusoe team are very hard working and considerate, our biggest concern was that all access was across a neighbour’s garden but every effort was taken by Trevor & co to limit any inconvenience to our neighbours (who actually thought Crusoe were great). The icing on the cake was the internal plastering which was faultless!
Surrey, September 2014
'‘Trevor, Jack and the team were great to have around for the brief time they worked here. They were quiet, unassuming and hard working. Nothing was too much trouble and they kept me fully informed at each stage of the construction. Any concerns I had were dealt with sympathetically as were changes I requested. The financial side was clear and fair - any add-ons were openly priced. The final construction is superb. All visitors comment on the quality and finish to the room. I can assure you it will be very difficult to find a team of more skilled, trustworthy and reliable construction workers… Do not hesitate to employ them!'
Nottingham, May 2014
"To say we are pleased with our Garden Room is an understatement - it really is an asset to our home and garden. Crusoe Garden Rooms have been a pleasure to work with from the original conversations regarding estimates, through to the site visit and then the commencement and completion of the works. The room was made to our specific requirements, from the size of the room to the layout and position of the windows and doors, through to the flooring and decoration. Trevor and his team are extremely friendly and professional and the quality of the work carried out is very good. We are now in the process of kitting out the new room as an office - it will certainly make 'going to work' that little more enjoyable! If you're looking for a quality garden room that will last for many years, I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Trevor and the team at Crusoe.”
Suffolk, July 2014
'Considering that we have only a small site we enjoyed having the team of three with us for the week. Everyone was upbeat, polite, friendly and professional and always cleared up after themselves.
We are delighted with our Crusoe Garden Room as it is exactly what we wanted and needed. It is such a pleasure to look at with its beautiful cedar cladding. An extra door was created for the integral shed. We saw that a great deal of time was taken to match the cladding tones and lines of the door with those on the body of the shed. We love this care and attention to detail. Looking at our garden room from the house puts a smile on our faces!
It's not just a pretty face either; the superior insulation means that even on a very hot day the room temperature is comfortable to work in.
We thoroughly recommend Crusoe Garden Rooms.'
Colchester, June 2014
'My wife wanted a Studio in our back garden, not something one buys every day! We visited several suppliers and found it all a bit confusing. Then by pure chance we came across Crusoe Garden Room. They are local to us so we visited them. It was then we met Trevor and Emma. What a difference. Full information and Trevor even came to our home and gave advice on site. This was extremely helpful. Having commissioned them to construct the Studio to our design (something no one else offered) we were delighted with the professionalism displayed. Trevor and Jack started the build on the day promised. All construction took place on site enabling us to see that all the materials used were of the best quality. Nothing was too much for them. The electrician could not have been more helpful. The finished article is fantastic. All this at a very competitive price. We cannot praise this firm enough.’
Bingham, Nottinghamshire, April 2014
'Just a note to let you know that we are now happily operating from the bottom of the garden thanks to your craftsmanship and hard work.
The room provides us with a lovely working environment, has freed up the top floor of our house and has resolved the problem of what to do with the gloomy dumping ground at the bottom of our garden! The additions we asked for such as extra insulation, additional windows, partition, foundations and laying of cables were easy to plan with you on your initial site visit and were carried out at a very reasonable price.
After spending much time researching garden rooms your company was definitely the best choice to make. We would have no hesitation recommending you and wish you well in the future.'
Beckenham, London, March 2014
'Trevor and Jack have just finished our garden room and the whole family is delighted. Very occasionally you find a craftsman who demonstrates more care and passion over what he creates then you can possibly expect. This is Trevor and his team. He does what he says when he says and far better than you expect. He is easy to deal with, flexible with design changes, polite, always tidy on site and uses quality materials. You will be pleased you choose Crusoe Garden Rooms as I am. Highly recommend.’
London, March 2014
'Thank you to Trevor, Jack and Floyd for building my studio, you have done a fantastic job and were also a real pleasure to have around. The studio looks (and smells) great, is warm and peaceful and every time I step in there it feels like such a wonderful space to work. We definitely made the right choice to get this build done with Crusoe and would recommend this hard working professional and creative team of builders to anyone. '
Newark-on-Trent, November 2013
'Trevor is great to do business with; helpful, clear communications, highly efficient and very skilled. The team worked hard all week and watching the new structure take shape was an exciting event. The final outcome has surpassed our expectations; a really stunning addition to our home which will transform the way we use our property. We recommend Crusoe unreservedly; their garden rooms are of a very high quality at a reasonable price.'
Suffolk, October 2013
'We chose Crusoe Garden Rooms to install our garden office because they offered a bespoke build that would fit into the landscape of our garden. We were worried it might stand out too much. The design and materials used matched what we had pictured and the building, complete with flooring and cupboards was within our budget. We were very pleased with the speed and quality of the installation and the end result is a great looking garden room that blends into the garden beautifully.'
Welwyn Garden City, September 2013
'Our new garden room is absolutely fantastic - having purchased it without seeing anything other than pictures and a description we were a little apprehensive as to what we had bought, but from the initial conversations with Trevor and through the build process which only took a week from start to finish we have to say it has more than exceeded our expectations. It was all completed exactly when they said it would be and the quality and finish is excellent - we will look forward to using it for many years to come - Thanks again, we would happily recommend you to anyone!'
Wakefield, June 2013
'Crusoe Design worked with us to design a bespoke garden office that perfectly matched our requirements, location and budget. Changes to the specification were accommodated along the way without any problem. The build went exactly to plan and within ten days of starting we had a perfect garden office. Trevor and his team were a pleasure to deal with throughout. We couldn't be happier. Highly recommended.'
Bromley, Kent, May 2013
'Thank you all for an excellent job done in record time. We were particularly impressed by the good organisation, attention to detail and pride taken in finishing everything to a high standard. We are very pleased with our new 'her shed''.
Nottinghamshire, April 2013
'The garden office has been a fantastic addition to our life, as a family of 4 and with part of my working week spent working from home, it's a beautiful space to work in peace. The design is very contemporary and the build process very stress-free. Trevor takes an extremely detailed approach to planning so that everything is clear before the build takes place and the build itself runs like clock-work (with the obvious exceptions of really awful weather!). The quality of the build is super and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Trevor's garden offices to others.'
Holmfirth, April 2012
'I went to see our lovely Garden Room today and it looks amazing. Just as you promised it looks like it has always been there. Thank you so much.'
London, May 2012
'Trevor and his team were wonderful throughout, from the first site visit to completion. Friendly, cheerful, hardworking and highly skilled. Really pleased with the end result, it looks fantastic and it's brilliant finally to have the space to work and make a right old noise without the family and I killing each other! Highly recommended.'
Tunbridge Wells, November 2012
'Trevor and Jack made such a great job of our garden room, installation on schedule, room built to exact specification and a pleasure to do business with. Everything went to plan and the guys were great.'
Angus, Scotland, June 2012
"Please pass on our thanks to the whole of your team - We are delighted with our garden room."
Nottingham, July 2017
