All Zest products are sold as self-assembly unless otherwise stated. Products may require the use of a drill and drill bits to pre-drill the screw holes before construction.

Good Value For Money

Assembled ok instructions could have been better, had to do fair bit of measuring as some of the parts sizes not that good. Cover and seat cushion very well made.

A great piece of garden furniture

One or two panels slightly split, but not an issue as this is the nature of a natural wood product. The roof construction was not as easy as perceived. But overall it was easily constructed. Definitely a 2 person job. Would not hesitate to recommend it.

Wonderful little arbour. Just what we needed!

I love this arbour and was very proud I managed to build it myself in an afternoon. Yes I did need a bit of help to get the roof on. The instruction pictures werent very clear so some of my pieces are a bit out of line but its good quality wood. It has made our very small yard a little peaceful Sanctuary to sit, read and enjoy a little glass of Vino!

Cheltenham Arbour

Really good product which looks great in the garden. Delivery was first class. Pretty straightforward to assemble which is just as well, because the instructions are useless. Assembly took about 2 and a half hours, fixings were fine but you do really need two people to assemble the roof. All together very happy with this product.

Good Product let down by some quality control issues.

This is basically a decent quality product which looks good when assembled and painted and decked out with cushions etc. The instructions are clear and concise and the arbour easy to put together, even for a 75 year old with a dodgy back, although I had to borrow a neighbour for five minutes to help to lift the roof into position. I have just two minor issues with the product:- 1). The screws supplied are of total rubbish quality, with some of the 60mm ones badly bent and very few of them were totally straight. However, it wasn't a major issue as I had already decided to use decent quality screws of my own at all key points. 2). One of the fascia boards had obviously been returned by a previous customer, as it featured two badly drilled holes with the remains of broken screws embedded in them. Again it was easily sorted, but problems like this and the bent screws should just not occur with proper standards of quality control.

Warped wood

Two of the major panels (side and seat) arrived warped, which made it difficult to marry some sections correctly, but I finally built it with one seat corner bending uphill, resting on a small block of wood I supplied and shaped myself, to avoid putting too much strain on the hinges. I also broke three drill bits in the normal building process, which took several days to complete.

Good Sturdy Arbour but some issues when building it

Instructions were very poor, as with other reviews I found it difficult to see how pieces fitted together,, also as others have stated pre-drilled holes would have been really useful. I also had problems with the screws supplied 60mm was not long enough for fixing back panels to side panels (only went into back panel 1/2 inch - not enough for a strong joint) used 75mm screws which I had available. Also 60mm stated for fixing floor in place, these went right through wood support and protruded by 1" so had to replace with shorter screws. Looks to me as if product spec has been changed but screw pack and instructions not updated.

Wonderful focal point

Quick delivery, helpful delivery man. Instructions could certainly have been easier to follow but I've dealt with worse! Back top panel didn't fit quite square so hard to fix to roof. Seat sticks, especially when damp, and will have to be planed off at the edges before it will open properly. Overall a very impressive focal point to our new little terrace/patio, which allows us to enjoy our wonderful view of Dartmoor.

Impressive looking arbour

Impressive looking, makes a statement and the storage box under the seat is very good. Delivery driver took all the boxes into the back garden for us. Easily assembled but as per other reviews you need help to lift the roof on.
