Our Rope Swings

Our oak rope swings, hand made in Devon, continue to be a best seller for us and they have really gone from strength to strength over the years.  We are also finding more and more that adults are buying for themselves, just as much as for children.  We even recently made one for a lady buying it as a “gift to self” for her 70th birthday, inscribed “STILL SWINGING AT 70!"  We loved that one!

And if you think you're stuck because you don't have a suitable problem, our extra height single oak frame is just the thing for extra high swinging, for child or grown up.

So whilst we don't like to mention the Christmas word too soon, our swings really do make the most wonderful, lasting present, especially with a hand carved inscription to add to the memory  Here's why....

What makes our garden swings the best?

Our rope swings have the credibility of our established brand, so much so that we are the only bespoke swing makers Endorsed by the RHS

The National Trust have also bought our products for their gardens, and believe us, their testing & safety procedures are extremely vigorous, so what greater endorsement could you ask for?

Where others have the ropes spliced around the rope swing, meaning the wood may be prone to split over time, our ropes, which are made by a long established marine rope maker, in Dorset,  are threaded through the rope swing. Our rope swings have strengthening oak battens underneath them adding to their stability and each rope swing comes with our unique, simple, no knots hanging system as standard, along with full instructions.

The corners and edges of our rope swings are gently rounded, meaning a little one (or adult) will never get a painfully sharp knock.

We make them in four sizes and all can be hand carved with favourite words and inscriptions:

Child’s – perfect for little ones

Single – a generous 75cm wide, perfect for children or adults.  In fact, two children are able to sit comfortably on this together

Double – a big favourite for weddings, a generous 110cm wide, very comfortable for two adults, and any number of little ones!

Round – perfect for the more adventurous, often referred to as a button or monkey swing

Triple Rope Double – the same size as our standard double, and new to us this year, this innovative three rope swing, perfect for children (or adults!) who love to sit together. During our recent photoshoot, our willing models found that the central ropes provided them with good stability alongside the ability to get up a really good swing in the process.

Leather - also, for interior use, we have our rather smart hand stitched leather swing, hand made by a Master Saddler in Devon.

“Thanks for the speedy dispatch of the swing. It was simple to put up. The children think it is fantastic and won't let me have a go!
