We know the sun doesn't always shine in England, but when it does, there's nowhere better to be than the garden. And if you've got a house-full (or indeed village hall-full) of guests coming over, using the garden can also free up some much-needed space.
We don't have a grand selection of items for hire - but then who needs grand when you're surrounded by nature? Instead you'll find seating and shelter. We have 16 wooden, fold-up director's chairs with cream and zingy green fabric backs and seats for hire, along with a selection of cotton throws and picnic rugs for lounging.
We also have two good quality pop-up gazebos. Not your flimsy four-poles-and-two-pieces-of-string jobs, these have good quality frames and sides (two with windows) that you can add if the weather is looking dicey. They won't keep you dry in a downpour, but they should keep the odd shower off - and even the beating sun if it decides to make an appearance. They also look charming with bunting hanging from their frames, and - come the evening - strung with fairy lights as impromptu chill-out areas.
