The Sitting Spiritually Experience

There’s something alluringly nostalgic about a rope swing, and installing one in your outdoor space will conjure up magical childhood memories of carefree Sunday afternoons spent in the garden when all is right with the world.

Strengthening Oak Battens

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.

Customised Inscriptions

If you’re looking for an extra dose of individual charm, you can also add a custom inscription to your swing; maybe a meaningful phrase, or the name of the recipient? The choice is yours!

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.

 A rich source of timeless fun, for both children and adults alike.
