Double Seated Oak Rope Swing

Some things are made for sharing. Multiply the fun, multiply the whimsical charm with this glorious Double-seated Oak Rope Swing. If there was a way to increase the enjoyment of a beautifully-handcrafted rope swing, feeling the clean summer air wash over you as your feet get closer and closer to the sky, it’s having a friend or family member sitting next to you to share the experience.

Just like the single-seat version, this swing is crafted from kiln-dried oak; a raw material which combines an exquisite natural aesthetic with durability and strength. Our Double-seated Oak Rope Swing is a must-have statement piece for your garden; one that’ll deliver a lifetime of pleasure for friends and family. For that personal touch, why not add a bespoke inscription to your swing? Perhaps the name of a loved-one or a memorable quote.

Technical Information

This swing measures 110cm wide by 25cm deep, and 5cm thick—that's 94cm between the ropes—so it's ideal for trees, beams or any suitable structure—or one of our custom-built Sitting Spiritually frames.

All our Hempex ropes are professionally spliced and prepared and come complete with our simple to use no-knots fixing kit—to ensure that hanging the swing is a straightforward task. No fiddly knots or fixings to worry about!

The ropes themselves are 16mm thick with a 5m drop on each side. If you’re looking for an extra bit of length, we’ll happily supply them in either 8m and 10m if needed. There’s plenty of strength in these ropes, too, with a breaking strain of 1951kgs on each side. Just be sure to measure precisely so there’s enough rope to wrap around the bough twice.

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.

"Since we hung our Wedding Swing in our oak tree, it has become a focal point for every photographer and newly married couple once the formal photographs are over. It never fails to capture the fun and joy of the occasion!"
