British autumn time is now in full swing, and the colder months are officially upon us. The air is fresher, the temperature is cooler and the days are shorter. But this doesn’t mean you can’t spend time outdoors, enjoying what your garden has to offer.

At Cotswold Teak, we offer a wide range of garden accessories that’ll make spending time outdoors in the winter immeasurably more pleasant.

Whether it’s cosying up with a good book or even dining alfresco with loved ones - we’re here to help you enjoy your garden this season. Read on to discover the best garden accessories you need to enjoy your garden in the colder months…

Invest in outdoor heating

There’s nothing better than cosying up in front of your outdoor heating of choice, enjoying the fresh air; without having to worry about feeling discomforted by the cool breeze.

Comfort and practicality aside, there’s also something about having an outdoor heating addition that adds a luxurious touch to an outdoor space.

What we’re trying to say is, when you invest in high-quality outdoor heating, you’ll gain a stylish and elegant addition that’ll also make your garden fully equipped to accommodate your needs all year round.

Similar to our extensive premium teak furniture ranges, we have plenty of choice for you to choose from when it comes to outdoor heating. Check out our selection below.

A high-quality parasol

Of course, during the summer months, having access to a parasol is essential. But it’ll also make for a useful garden accessory throughout the colder months.

It’s no secret that British winter time is subject to plenty of downpours and cold weather, so if you’d like to still enjoy your garden this season, investing in a parasol will mean that you’ll have access to outdoor shelter and protection from the elements.

Additionally, a common misconception is that UV rays are not harmful during the winter months. This is not true, and protection from UV rays is still as important as ever during this season!

Here at Cotswold Teak, we offer an extensive range of premium quality parasols in a variety of size options, including Aluminum Parasols, Solid Wood Parasols, and of course, Premium Solid Teak Parasols. To give you a feel, we’ll show a selection from each collection to help you decide which addition would work best for you.

Pro tip: a base for your parasol is just as important as the parasol itself! Ensure that you invest in a high-quality weighted base to make the most out of your addition.

Premium solid teak parasols

To start, we have our Premium Solid Teak parasols, the perfect focal point for any outdoor space. Our stunning parasols are made using a high-quality polyester fabric, which has a weatherproof coating and UPF sun protection level 50.
