BENTS has introduced the latest garden must-have for the Covid era – but it does not come cheap.

The Glazebury family business has been causing a stir on social media with its new 'garden igloo' by Astreea that can be hooked up for lighting, electricity and even heating.

It is made of aerospace aluminium and transparent PVC film and there is room for between two and 16 people depending on what size you get.

The garden igloo also has a sealed top to protect against rain and snow and there is an electric and lighting system.

A heater can also be installed and there are ventilation points in the ceiling near the lights and via the zip entrance to allow airflow.

A spokesman for Bents said on Facebook: "The countdown to outdoor socialising is on, and the garden igloo is the perfect item to ensure you can enjoy your garden whatever the weather."

The website added: "Easy to assemble, sturdy metal frame and weatherproof cover to give you comfort from the elements.

"This would be a great addition to the garden or any outdoor space, perfect for late evening get togethers.

"A relaxing space – add a yoga mat and exercise outside whatever the weather. Use your outdoor areas all year long, watch the changing seasons by adding a heater to create a cosy space in the winter."

The only snag is that prices start at £1,149.

One commenter said: "Prosecco in your garden in any weather."

Another added: "Love it just not the price tag."
