"Nothing could quite prepare us for the sheer majesty of our swing seat"

14 years of research into making our swings beautiful,  not just to look at, but with such detailed ergonomics that once you sit on them – you won’t want to get off.

We honed in on the finest details over the years, concise changes in angles and shapes that will refine and improve our products. The seats we manufacture now are undoubtedly better than the ones we first made when we started out, in another 10 years time we expect to be able to say the exact same thing.

The quality of the material we use is incredibly important to us. We regularly seek to find new suppliers or timbers that are an improvement on what we have been using.

The Only Bespoke Swing & Bench Maker Licensed by the RHS

Buying a garden swing seat or any kind of hand crafted garden furniture takes time and consideration.

Choose your swing bench wisely - it will be made especially for you and it is likely to be in your life for many years.

The shape is important, it must be classic, comfortable, beautiful and fit your garden, gazebo, porch, arbour, pergola or branch of that favourite tree.

You must be able to relax on your swing seat, both sitting comfortably and using it like a hammock – stretch out with a cushion and snooze dreamily in the dappled sunlight! Make sure it’s long enough and wide enough for all the family.

Test the swing factor – is it balanced? Does it have a soft, smooth and gentle motion?
