5 best man caves (or she sheds) on the market right now

Here's how the Oxford Dictionary defines a man cave:

man cave


"a room or other part of a home used by a man as a place to relax and pursue hobbies away from the rest of the family.
"a man cave equipped with a pool table and pinball machine"

In other words, it's a place a bloke can get some peace and quiet, play with his toys and chew the fat with his mates.

Whether you’re looking to escape the grandkids or watch the Raiders in peace and quiet, we’ve come up with a comprehensive list of man caves that tick all the boxes, ideal for playing pool, the tunes you like on the juke box and hanging the framed footy jersey you got at a local trivia night.
