Phone signal in my garden office

Just moved into bigger house and now have a home office in the garden - great but the phone struggles to get signal.  Base station is in the house and the 2nd handset is plugged into a socket in my office about 30 ft away from the base station. Do I need new phones or is this a signal issue ??

Thanks in advance!

Re: Phone signal in my garden office

Sounds like you are beyond the maximum range for a DECT handset system. They will only operate to about that distance in the open air. Put walls & other obstructions in the way & it drops considerably.
