So very pleased with our beautiful…

So very pleased with our beautiful bench.

It really does look and feel far superior to your average garden bench. It is extremely well made.

The whole process was handled brilliantly from order to delivery.


A Joy To Work With

I bought a two seater swing seat for my wife's birthday last year and although I was offered a delivery date before Christmas I chose to wait until the spring (so it didn't have to sit through winter unused). I must say I found communicating with Sitting Spiritually a delight to deal with and the actual swing seat fantastic. The quality of the wood and joints is superb as is the design; a really well made quality product - We both are delighted with it. Thank you

Beautiful Furniture

I am loving my tranquility swing seat in oak! The wood is beautiful and excellent quality and the seat is perfectly designed - somehow it cradles you in a way that really encourages relaxation! Lovely to deal with Siobhan and Martin too - so helpful and passionate about their fantastic products and their whole business. Highly recommend.

Such Quality Is Rare

Very happy with our swing seat. We'd sat on one at RHS Bridgewater so had an idea of the quality, and the one we purchased is just as good. Hand made from solid oak with a lovely finish, just what we wanted. We also had personal and attentive service, we spoke to the owner himself several times and know the name of the craftsman that actually made our seat and have his photo. Even the guy who delivered and set it up seemed to really care about the product and what he was doing. Such quality and service is rare these days.

How Business Should Be

This is the way business should be conducted! An amazing experience from start to finish, I can't praise them highly enough. Happily I was able to visit their garden to see the seats, which was just as well as I ended up ordering a completely different one to the one I had anticipated.
Martin was extremely helpful, giving me a completion date there and then.
Next day an email with all the details of the seat, delivery company etc.
A month or so before delivery, Saturn Removals contacted me for information on delivery date etc. They arrived dead on time, set up the seat to my height and were absolutely charming. Followed up with a phone call from Martin the following day to check we are happy. Absolutely!

About the Tranquillity Range

The Tranquillity was originally influenced by the need for a choice of back and arm styles and to harness comfort within a classical design. We use Kiln dried FSC prime grade Oak grown in France; it’s slower grown and therefore harder and more durable than Southern European and UK Oak. When you first take delivery of a Tranquillity the wood is a warm golden colour that over time weathers to a soft silver. It requires no further treatment.

Each swing seat is truly one-of-a-kind. The Tranquillity is made from seasoned oak with bags of character—the wood begins life radiating a warm golden colour that over time weathers to a soft silver. A stunning visual feast that will add personality and style to your garden.

Swing Seat Dimensions and Footprint

The Affinity, Tranquillity & Serenity Range all share the same footprint in the various seat styles available. The below images are of one particular back style and are used to demonstrate footprint size rather than finished appearance.

Due to the handcrafted nature of our products the final footprint can vary slightly from seat to seat, measurements provided are for the largest expected dimensions. If you are intending to set a slab under each leg we suggest not doing so until you have taken delivery.

"The balance is perfect, a gentle push and the seat continues to swing for several minutes"

Dear Martin, Just a short note to say thank you for producing such a wonderful seat. My wife was delighted with it. There is no doubt that the Pimms tastes better when sipped gently swinging on a beautiful oak seat. We were really impressed with the way you made the seat in such a way that the balance is absolutely perfect, a gentle push and the seat continues to swing for several minutes. Family and friends have all been very impressed with the seat and we look forward to enjoying many hours "Sitting Spiritually" over the coming years. Thank you for making the perfect seat.
