Carved Oak Rope Swing
Children on Oak Rope Swing

Single Oak Rope Swing

There's something simply splendid about a Rope Swing - and we reckon ours are pretty special, if we do say so ourselves.

Built out of wonderful Kiln Dried Oak for beauty and longevity (and added support battens to the underside for extra sturdiness), this Rope Swing is built to last. You can also add a custom inscription if you like - maybe a meaningful phrase, or the names of the recipient?

The swing is 75cm wide, 25cm deep and 5cm thick (that's 60cm between the ropes) so it's ideal for trees, beams and our Sitting Spiritually frames.

The hempex ropes are professionally spliced and prepared, and come ready with our no knots fixing kit to make hanging the swing as simple as we can.

The ropes are 16mm thick, and measure 5m in drop each side (but we can make them 8m or 10m each side if you need it.) 

The breaking strain of the ropes is 1951kgs  each side 

You'll need to make sure you have enough rope to wrap around the bough twice, so please be sure to measure carefully.

We do hold a small stock of uncarved swings and can get them to you as a next day special if needed.

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.

I want to hang from a frame/ceiling/porch ?

If you would like us to build a rope swing to your own measurements? No problem, just give us a call.

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.

Thanks for the speedy dispatch of the swing. It was simple to put up. The children think it is fantastic and won't let me have a go! Regards"
