Technical information

The Round Seated Rope Swing is easy enough to hang, with no complicated knots or fixings to wrestle with. Simply wrap the rope provided over a suitable bough or branch, and tighten our no-knots fixings to secure the swing.

Our standard rope is 5m long and comes complete with its own special fixings. Just ensure that the rope is long enough to reach from the underside of the bough or branch—wrapped around twice—all the way to the floor. Remember to measure accurately to ensure a comfortable fit! The breaking strain of the rope is 5417 kgs while the round seat itself measures 35cm wide and 4cm thick. If you’ve decided on a personal inscription—we can carve up to 20 characters.

Finding Your Perfect Rope Swing

Watch as Sitting Spiritually founder Martin Young guides you through the key things to consider when choosing a rope swing. The type of wood, rope length, how they're assembled and the different ways of personalising your rope swing all inform the decision making process.

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.

Single Swing Hanging from a Frame

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.
