Sitting Spiritually Pergola at Forde Abbey

Bespoke Pergola and Arbour Swing Seats

Deliver and assembly available

Unique and long-lasting

We believe our pergola is singularly special because it’s expertly handcrafted from extra large timbers of green prime grade joinery quality oak. It’s knot-free, so it won’t twist and split. It’s also sapwood free, so it’ll last much longer with no risk of rotting. Our pergola can be concreted down or fixed to a suitable surface for longevity and security.

Delivery and assembly available

Created from scratch by expert joiners in our workshops, we pre-build each pergola in our workshop to make sure the timbers will easily and neatly slot into the joints on delivery. Speaking of delivery, we know you’ll want to start enjoying your seat as soon as possible. We can deliver and assemble your pergola in one day.

A Sitting Spiritually Pergola

Pergolas are big news in Garden Design at the moment, with their ability to create a ‘room like’ area within your garden, perfect for outdoor eating or just another place to relax. It can be planted thoughtfully for Summer shade and in Winter you could even add some twinkly fair lights for a romantic & warming glow.
