About us

Established in 1979 as Broomhill Garden Buildings by a husband and wife team, the company has evolved through the years, becoming Coastal Garden Buildings to reflect our coastal location. But being a family run business is still very much at the heart of the company.

Today, the husband and wife team are Martin & Rachael Penny. Martin began his garden building life in 1999 working at Broomhill Garden Buildings as the general manager. Ten years later he bought the company when the original owners retired. He has been running the business ever since. Rachael joined the company in 2011 and became Martin’s wife in 2016.   

With Martin and Rachael at the helm, the Coastal Garden Buildings family has grown to include an in-house team of fitters – some of whom have worked for the company for over 20 years and are pretty much part of the furniture; and the sales team who you will find at our show site in Christchurch, Dorset.

We install stunning garden buildings within a 20-mile radius of our show site, including across Christchurch, Bournemouth, Poole, Ringwood, New Milton, Lymington, Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst and Southampton.

So here we are … ready to help you create your own beautiful slice of outdoor living.
