Just what I wanted.

Great delivery. Phoned when 45 mins away. Helpful drivers. Arbour is still sitting in pieces in the garage waiting for a sunny day! but all parts and screws were correct and it looks to be of good value. I am looking forward to next year when I can sit out in it in the garden.

This is a great product and excellent quality for the price. Great value through this site - the product is available elsewhere for considerably more. As other reviewers have noted, the instructions could be better but we managed to build it within a couple of hours nonetheless and it looks great. I'm absolutely delighted and the service through this site was second to none. The delivery driver was extremely helpful and very friendly.

Venetian Corner Arbour Seat

  • Delivery: Five Stars

Nice product but as previous reviewers have noted needs a lot of time and patience to put together as sections such as the slatted roof need to be trimmed to fit correctly.

Just what my garden needed .quick delivery took 2 people to assemble in less than 3 hours . Had looked at reviews before buying so had longer screws ready no problems assembling very pleased with my purchase

Very pleasing

  • Delivery: Four Stars

I agree with most of the other comments. The product certainly enhances the garden and I am pleased I bought it, but assembly is tricky, requires careful reading of the instructions (which could be better laid out) and certainly you need to pre-drill the holes and have an electric screwdriver. I also failed to get the seat slats to meet in the middle.

Corner your Arbour

  • Delivery: Four Stars
  • Quality: Four Stars
  • Price: Five Stars

This was significantly cheaper through this site so wins on value for money. The quality is good but you do need to have the right tools for the job. Making sure you read the instructions is essential. I found pre drilling the holes before assembly very useful and a power screw driver will reduce the construction time. If you put in Place T&g boarding to fill the lower levels make sure you assemble the seats before final fixing. If you paint the structure it takes about 5 litres. I used two colours and about 2.5l of each for 2 coats. I also painted the parts before assembly and touched up after assembly. This took about 15-20 hours. Overall worthwhile and good value for money. I regrettably was not there for the delivery so it was delivered but the parts were slightly spread out. Overall effective delivery.

Good result overall

  • Delivery: Five Stars

Overall effect is very good and looks great in the garden. Rather roughly cut wood and the supplied carriage bolt is too short requiring a trip the local DIY store.

Hard work but worth it

  • Delivery: Five Stars

Delivered on time with a very helpful driver. It took my son and I about 4½ hours to erect, but without an electric screwdriver it would have been much more difficult. The finished product is good, although we couldn't make the seat slats meet properly in the corner.

Impressive arbour

  • Delivery: Five Stars
  • Quality: Four Stars
  • Price: Four Stars

Delivered very quickly, and the order process was very straightforward. The arbour came in many bits and pieces, but nothing was missing. My son-in-law and myself took 7 hours to put it all together. An expert team could have done it much faster, but we took our time so as not to make any mistakes and pre-drilled all the holes. As another reviewed remarked, the instructions could have been a bit clearer. Not a task for someone who cant do IKEA/MFI flat packs, and some might get a tradesman to put the arbour together. HOWEVER, it was worth the hassle and the end result looks very impressive and I feel it worth the money

Venetian Corner Arbour Seat

  • Delivery: Five Stars
  • Quality: Three Stars
  • Price: Four Stars

delivery was very good, my day of choice and i was texted on the day with a time. The instructions are very clear. Much of the wood is very roughly sawn ( i have sanded ) one triangle panel had been made wrong so we had to plane it to make fit. It has taken a lot of effort by us to put together & sand all rough bits. However, i spent a lot of time looking for a seat which i liked that didn't cost a fortune, the finished seat looks very good, just what i wanted.

Was out of stock when I rang to enquire about delivery, however advised that more where due in at the end of week - which happened. All then delivered as stated and rang the day before for a 4 hour window which was very useful. Assembled slowly during the day, was a nice project to complete and looks exactly as depicted in the picture - had a lot of positive comments 😃

Disappointed by finish and roof slats

  • Delivery: Five Stars
  • Quality: Two Stars
  • Price: Four Stars

The main structure is adequate although the finish is very rough, with some frayed edging and splinters. The 36 thin slats that make up the roof are the biggest concern, as a large number of them have bowed whilst waiting to be erected. My contractor is concerned that they will break when nailed and may not fit into the roof struts. This would mean we will have to source treated timber and pay for it to be cut to size. I have contacted the manufacturer but received no response. We will make it work somehow but would not have purchased had I known this would happen. Can only assume we have been unlucky as there were no complaints in other reviews.

Very Pleased with this Seat. Glad we opted for this one as it can seat more than two and is very cosy. The large windows and slatted roof let in loads of light and sun. Looking forward to painting it now to match our garden theme.!!

Worth the effort

  • Delivery: Five Stars
  • Quality: Four Stars
  • Price: Five Stars

We are very pleased with the end result, but feel that the assembly instructions could be clearer, the process would be much quicker with pre-drilled holes and we hope that the screws supplied are enough for the job -time will tell. This is NOT a job for a DIY beginner.

As with a previous review, longer coach bolts needed to be purchased as those supplied were not long enough. Managed to assemble on own with only a little help for some parts, took just over a day. Some elements did not fit particular well, but good enough for a garden seat. Excellent price and service, and looks good in the garden.

By Paul Lewis , written on Tuesday 28th, April, 2015.

Nice...but be wary

  • Delivery: Five Stars
  • Quality: Three Stars
  • Price: Five Stars

This arbour is very attractive once assembled and fits neatly into a small garden. The slatted roof is particularly attractive, especially when lit from below at night. However, the assembly of the arbour was beset with problems: none of the timber is predrilled adding considerable time to the construction. The only predrilled element (instruction one) was not countersunk deep enough so as to allow the coach bolt to pass through fully. After consultation with customer services, this meant a trip to the DIY store to purchase longer bolts. However, this then meant that two stages later the back panel would not sit flush to the post. Other issues occured throughout assembly and many minor tweaks were required. In total it took many, many man hours to complete. It was (just about) worth it in the end because it is lovely, but BE WARY - make sure you have powerful electric drills and screwdrivers and plenty of time and patience!

We have only just had this built by our landscapers this week, and haven't actually sat in it properly yet - have to get the cushions! but it looks lovely, is very well made and was put together with no problems. It looks really stylish too and we are looking forward to enjoying it. It is not positioned in a corner, but we liked it because of the roof and it still works in the position it is in.

Questions and Answers (14)

Michelle Asked:

I would like to secure the 8ft x 5ft Venetian Corner Arbour Seat to an elevated decking area. Is the product suitable for securing with metal brackets or should it be sunk into the ground?

We Replied:

Dear Michelle Thank you fo your question. The product is fine on a decking area. In fact we had a similar building on a raised decked area in our garden centre. Due to the weight it won't need securing down unless you want to. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

Eric williams Asked:

Does the slatted roof stop the rainwater from getting through?

We Replied:

Dear Eric Thank you for your question. The roof is not waterproof. However, I have been under it in a storm and been dry so it does depend on the direction of the rain. Other Gazebos with a solid roof are available at /Garden_Structures/Garden_Gazebos/ Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

Colin Truman Asked:

Can you configure the arbour seat for the longest side to be on the left of right, or only as the picture indicates longest side on the right?

We Replied:

Dear Colin Thank you for your question. The product cannot be changed as it is not a bespoke product. The product has equal lengths as seen in the diagram /database_images/8cc7115e1d00ca6152edd13133aa92a8_original.jpg Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

Nick Cooke Asked:

I am confused by the dimensions and would appreciate your clarification. Does width mean distance from the left hand corner looking head on at the arbour to the right hand corner - measured at the base of the roof - and footprint from the equivalent posts at ground level? Does depth mean from the extreme back corner directly away from the entrance to the front edge at the base of the roof, and then footprint again at ground level?

We Replied:

Dear Nick Thank you for your question. Measurements are always maximum (end of roof for example) unless otherwise stated. Yes the footprint is the base as opposed to the roof measurements which are slightly more due to the overhang. I have amended the dimensions to make it easier to understand. 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 Nathan James Dodd

Brian Wiseman Asked:

How easy would it be to extend the tongue and grooved backs to the same level as the bottom of the sides? I'd rather have the backs of the seats shielded from the wind and weather. Could the manufacturer supply the necessary materials?

We Replied:

Dear Brian Thank you for your question. Relatively easy as you can use the uprights to secure any additional wooden boards to create more shelter from wind and rain. The T&G boards can be sourced from your 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.

June Asked:

I shall be shortly ordering this product and the intended site is against a 150cm fence on the two back sides. For future maintenance is it easy to remove the back panels for painting or staining?

We Replied:

Dear June Thank you for your question. You would need to access the back panels from outside to remove them. So the simplest and quickest option might be to get enough able bodied guys simply to pick it up and move it out and back in again, obviously bearing in mind the weight with regard to all health and safety considerations. 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

Pete Asked:

I am still confused about the dimensions of the Venetian Corner Arbour. What is the width of the front edge of the bench seat? And what is the width of the back edge of the bench seat? I am trying to determine if 4 people can sit comfortably.

We Replied:

Dear Pete Thank you for your question. This arbour will seat three adults comfortably, and four depending on their size. The front bench length is 31ins at the front and 46ins along the back. 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 Nathan James Dodd

What is the length, width and depth of the four roof beams?

Dear Ian Thank you for your question. The dimensions are: 90 x 53 x 1732mm (3.5ins x 2ins x 5ft 8ins) 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 Zach Nicholson

Thursday 24th, December, 2015
Ann Hall Asked:

What is the best type of base for this arbour seat?

We Replied:

Dear Ann Thank you for your question. Ideally the legs will need to stand on a hardstanding surface like a slab, bricks, concrete, decking or compacted ground otherwise they will sink into the ground. 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 Nathan James Dodd

Thursday 24th, March, 2016
Ian Asked:

Would this arbour seat be more secure if screwed into metal spike 'shoes'? Do you supply these and, if so, what's the price for six?

We Replied:

Dear Ian Thank you for your question. We have had one on display in our garden centre coffee shop area for the past year and it is not secured. It is in a sheltered spot on paving slabs and as a result has not needed to be secured. The seat will need securing if it is in an exposed spot where the wind could blow it over. If you need spikes then follow this link: /Landscaping/Forest_fencefast_easyfit_spike_Spike_length_600mm.htm Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.
