About the Knole Garden Bench

The Knole Settee was first made in the 17th Century & housed at Knole Park in Kent, now a National Trust property. As with the original, the Sitting Spiritually Knole Bench features adjustable sides for back rest adjustment, or when extended fully for holding a drink & book. With striking wooden finials at the rear corner tops and with the sides at the same height as the back, tied by means of hempex rope secured in place via the finials. 

Also, the seat has good depth for extra comfort, as with the original Knole Settee.

Using only the finest FSC-sourced oak, the Knole Garden Bench is made by Sitting Spiritually’s small team of master craftsmen in their Devon & Dorset workshops. Utilizing traditional techniques and the highest quality materials, we’ve created a modern classic garden bench.

"A completely satisfied customer"

From the beginning to the end the service was excellent. It is evident that a lot of care and pride goes into the whole process. I am absolutely delighted with my lovely bench which was delivered to me personally by Martin on the date I wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend both the product and the company - they are a pleasure to deal with.
