Children's wooden rope swing

What makes our swings the best

Our rope swings have the credibility of our established brand, so much so that we are the only swing makers Licensed 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, 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.

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

If you would like us to build a rope swing to your own measurements? No problem, just give us a call.

"Dear Martin and Celia, Thank you so much for making us the children's swing which takes pride of place alongside the lovely adult sized one you made us some time ago. We have a lovely time sitting together." - James and Christina

Do you need a frame for your swing?

If you do not have a suitable tree or support in your garden we also offer oak frames to match your rope swings.

You could take a look at the Trilogy Frame which can hold two seats with three configuration options or the High Oak Frame which holds one swing.
