What should I look for when buying a Rope Swing?

There’s nothing in life quite the same as sitting on a rope swing and watching the world fly beneath your feet. Whether you’re a child, an adult or a couple. Our Oak rope swings can be hung from your own tree or - if you don’t have the right tree in your garden - can be fixed to one of our high oak frames.

Our ropes are made by a highly respected marine rope maker, and threaded through the swings to avoid splitting. Our rope swings are strengthened with battens, and we provide a unique, simple, no knots hanging system as standard.

All of our rope swings can be engraved with an optional inscription of your choice. Why not order yours from our website today?

Watch as Sitting Spiritually founder Martin Young guides you through the decision making process for purchasing a bespoke Rope Swing.

Elegant, Robust & Beautifully Made

Our new rope swing is an elegant, robust and beautifully made addition to the garden. It was simple to hang and is of the best quality one could hope for. A timeless, classic swing that looks as though it has been lifted from the illustrations of a much loved children’s book. Many thanks for the craftsmanship, love and care that have gone into this swing. May we all approach everything that we do and make with the same ethos.

Wooden Swings for Adults

Not all wooden swings are for children. Adult swings are made from oak and are made to hang from either a tree or a high oak frame.

Marine Quality Hempex Ropes

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.
