Garden Swing Seat Tranquillity in FSC Oak

The Tranquillity Garden Swing Seat in Oak

from £2,675 - £3,215
Finance options available

Precision joinery combined with quality Oak come together in the Tranquillity Swing Seat to offer a long lasting, classic and very comfortable garden swing. This range of garden swing seats encompasses the beauty and durability of FSC Oak.

When you first take delivery of a Tranquillity the wood is a warm golden colour that over time weathers to a soft silver. We use seasoned FSC Oak which has bags of character and means each swing seat is truly one of a kind.

I am thrilled with my swing seat which is beautifully designed and crafted from oak

Thank you so much Martin and everyone involved at Sitting Spiritually. It is a delight to be able to escape to it and enjoy sitting quietly in an area of our garden that I hadn’t previously appreciated fully. It has also already become a focal point for family picnic/celebrations! Thank you also for managing to complete and deliver it in time for my special birthday despite Coronavirus constraints!

Great backup service even after 7 years!

I purchased an engraved rocker bench for my disabled son’s 21st birthday 7 years ago. My son lives in supported living so has 3 other house mates. Unfortunately one of the other young autistic men damaged a couple of the slats. I telephoned Martin and he was so understanding and replaced them both and some extra oak plugs free of charge.
The new slats are fitted and fit perfectly.
Thank you to Martin for your kind gesture, great backup service that means so much these days, even after 7 years!

Having fallen in love with the Swing Seats that overlook the River Way in the new River Garden area at RHS Wisely, I decided to have one made by Sitting Spiritually of Lyme Regis for our own back garden in Surrey.
Now that I am the proud owner of the new Oak Swing Seat (which looks fantastic in situ !) I would just like to say how refershing it was to have made the purchase from people who have shown a real love for their products - - - thanks Martin and Siobhan. The whole process was without fault, and the Swing itself shows real quality and workmanship.

Highly recommended

I saw one of these benches at Wisley - the RHS garden in Surrey. I decided to purchase one immediately! I'm so please with my swing - it looks beautiful and has everyone fighting to sit on it.
Dealing with Sitting Spiritually was delightful - from placing the delivery, to meeting the very nice man who delivered it.

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 Northern Germany near the Polish border; 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.

The Tranquillity swing bench also looks great as a seat only option hanging from a tree or other structure.

Our Tranquillity garden swing seats are available with any of our five back designs, and as a one, two, three or four seater.

"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.
