Rowlinson Britannia Arbour Painted

Product Code: PERBRIT EAN: 5013856015826

(4.8) Based on 4 Reviews


The Britannia Arbour captures the English countryside perfectly, with lattice work featuring a central octagonal motif under a neat, shapely but understated roof.

You can imagine coming across this style of arbour on a long rural walk, just in the right place to rest awhile. Tongue and groove woodwork features prominently, and it could easily be located in a bucolic country church yard with birds singing and insects buzzing. 

The painted finish, in pastel willow and elderflower, enhances the arbour's handsome appearance, and in anyone's garden it will become the epitome of tranquillity.

Superb Arbour

Superb arbour. We decided to take a chance by ordering online without having the opportunity to view and test for comfort at a retail outlet. We weren't disappointed. All aspects of the process were painless and efficient. Two minor observations; a screw hole from the back into the seat back was wrongly drilled and the arbour was transported on a pallet on its side in the van. This led to some minor chafing of the finish on the cream seat front. Both problems were easily rectified and I would recommend this quality arbour. Assembly for one person alone took 90 minutes and was straight forward using the supplied clear instructions.

The Rowlinson Britannia Arbour

First rate service. Customer service were knowledgeable; delivery was prompt and drivers very accommodating. A strong, well made structure. Does take rather longer than 30 minutes to erect, more like a couple of hours, but by following clear instructions was not a difficult task.

Excellent Arbour

Very well made,came in flat pack but was able to assemble in under half an hour but is a two person job. Every part lined up well with no problems,finish is great. A tad pricey but overall an excellent product.

Questions and Answers (4)

Robert Grinsell Asked:

Is this item completely flat packed, or is it merely a question of fixing some large panels together?

We Replied:

Dear Robert Thank you for your question. You are correct that this product is semi-assembly which means that the panels will need to be fitted together. The front fascia will be separate and need to be fitted also. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Robert Hall

Graham G Asked:

Do you recommend that this and similar arbours are secured to the ground when sighted on hard (paved) surfaces? If so what method do you suggest and what accessories i.e. brackets etc?

We Replied:

Dear Graham Thank you for your question. We would recommend securing it to a hard surface and the best method for this would be to use L brackets on each leg. Unfortunately, we do not sell compatible brackets for this item however they should be easy to obtain from a local DIY store. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren

Can the Britannia Arbour be coated in different colours as my garden colour scheme is cream and seagrass blue?

We Replied:

Dear Dianne Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we cannot supply the arbour in different colours as it only comes in the Ronseal Willow & Elderflower as standard. Apologies for any disappointment. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren
