There are lots of ways to store your bike indoors and make the most of whatever space you have, but if mud on your carpet and scuffs on your walls don’t appeal, or you simply can’t store your bike inside, we’ve rounded up a selection of cheap bike sheds and outdoor storage solutions.
As well as helping to protect your bike from the elements until you’re ready to tackle them, our selection should also keep them safe.
We’ve focused on options under £300 here – you can, of course, spend a lot more to increase space (or for burlier options).

Your bikes can dry under cover without dripping on a wooden base. Primrose
The Apex Overlap Bike Store provides storage room for three bikes and has double-door entry for easy access when maneuvering bikes in and out.
There’s no floor to allow moisture from wet bikes to run off unobstructed, and the wooden shed arrives with a preservative for you to add on installation.
The wooden doors feature a metal latch through which a padlock can be secured.
Rowlinson Shiplap Wallstore
Fit two to three adult bikes in this Rowlinson bike store. One Garden
You can store two to three adult size bikes inside this 6ft x 2.8ft bike shed.
It features a double-door front entry for easily reaching and rearranging bikes, plus a hasp and staple door catch for you to secure with your own padlock.
It’s built from pressure-treated wood to protect against rot.
Metal Garden Shed with Saddle Roof
Padlock the sliding doors of this metal shed for a secure bike storage solution. Mano Mano
If you’d prefer a metal bike shed over wood, this rust-resistant metal bike shed is designed to be robust, with reinforced walls and sliding door entry.
There are two colour options for the galvanised steel exterior of this shed, so can choose either green or grey to best fit your garden. Plus you are able to padlock the sliding door for some security.
Lotus 6ft x 4ft Low Pent Solid Metal Shed
A waterproof, sturdy and non-combustible bike shed. Primrose
This metal shed is made from high-tensile and hot-dipped galvanised steel and should prove a durable storage solution for your bike, being both waterproof and lockable.
It’s also non-combustible, which is a requirement sometimes stipulated by accommodation providers such as caravan parks for any storage sheds.
Shiplap Apex Wooden Bike Shed, 6ft x 3ft
Shiplap cladding gives this shed a smooth exterior finish. Wayfair
This pressure-treated wooden number is made of FSC-certified pine that’s weather and rot-resistant and comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, as well as a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty.
Padlock compatible doors come with the shed that features shiplap cladding, seeing interlocking tongue and groove boards slot together for a seamless appearance and sturdy exterior.
There’s a pent roof line to encourage rainwater run-off and flooring made from orientated strand board, offering similar durability to plywood.
Forest Garden 6ft x 4ft Apex Overlap Dip Treated Windowless Shed
A good choice for storing your bike out of sight. Forest Garden
The windowless design of this 6ft x 4ft Apex shed should help with the security, hiding the bikes you stow inside, as should the hidden hinges and the hasp and staple latch.
Being wooden in construction, the shed comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee and has a pressure treated wooden floor for added resilience against dampness created by dripping bikes.
Mercia 6ft x 4ft Overlap Pent Bike Shed
With a lick of lacquer, this bike shed should last a long time. Homebase
This 6ft x 4ft overlap pent box bike store uses rustic overlapping cladding to form its external structure, while thick wooden framing supports from the inside.
Its base and roof are made of sheet boards, a slightly cheaper material to help keep things more cost effective. This shouldn’t make it less secure than other wooden bike sheds but you may, in the long term, need to coat it with an additional protective layer of waterproofing lacquer.
There are two large and lockable double doors, plus a barrier against the elements provided by a roofing felt.
