RHS Serenity Garden Swing Seat in Cedar

Durability and style for your smaller space

Handcrafted using durable cedar wood, the RHS Serenity Garden Swing Seat is another timeless furniture piece from our range. Its fluid, pendulous swinging motion encourages the user to unwind and connect with their surroundings. With a number of size options available, from one to four-seater, this can be the perfect addition to your smaller garden.

For even more flexibility, our swing seats can be hung from a handmade pergola arch, a wonderful space-saving solution for smaller or city gardens. From an aesthetic point of view, the cedar's natural reddish apricot hue, which gracefully weathers to a stunning pewter grey, ensures that the swing seat fits seamlessly with the naturally environment.
