Very pleased!

We are very pleased with this arbor, it is sturdy and of good quality. Erecting it took a couple of hours, as we are fairly hands on re DIY the lack of predrilled holes was not too much of a problem. For the price it is a very nice piece of garden furniture.

Hampshire Arbour purchased May 2018.

Ordered the Hampshire Arbour on 24th May and it was delivered on 31st May, so very speedy. Couldn't open packages until 3rd June where we discovered two roof panels and two side panels were missing and 4 other items of wood were split or damaged. Contacted Zest4Life whose details were on the instructions and spoke to a very helpful lady called Jo. She ordered replacements for the missing items and on receipt of an email from myself contain photographic evidence of the damage to remaining parts, ordered replacements for those too. Said items were delivered within 3 days and of a much better quality than the originals, however we have been left to dispose of the damaged wood as they company didn't want them returned back. Construction - very easy to follow instructions, took two people just under 3 hours to build, it's a good strong and solid arbour but could have done with pilot holes being pre drilled for ease (not ever one is an expert at DIY). On the whole I'm pleased with my purchase, the wood could have been a slightly better quality given it cost £319.00 hence the 3* rating for quality, but once it's been painted/waxed then it should last a good few years.

The arbour took almost an afternoon to assemble (including avoiding heavy rain showers) and it was very disappointing that the roof ridge was missing so we were not able to complete it. Have to wait now while another one is sent to us. Also very disappointing to find that the seat cushion will not fit into the storage box - but maybe that is not a bad thing because the box is not waterproof and anything stored in there would have to be wrapped in plastic. With this in mind, the storage box could become almost useless unless it is used to store plastic pots etc. Could it not have been made waterproof in some way? Other than these niggles, it does look surprisingly robust and once we get the roof on, I am sure we will be happier. Next year we will definitely paint it because it would benefit from a lick of paint!

Hampshire Arbour - mixed review

This is a generally well-designed piece of garden furniture, made of reasonable quality timber. The finished article , painted in Cuprinol 'Willow' looks very good. Sadly the panels appear to have been assembled by someone with no pride whatsoever in their work. There are many poorly executed components, sloppy workmanship and careless construction. Quality control seems to be non-existent. As has been noted by a good number of reviewers the absence of 'pre-drilled holes' is an issue. Given the frequency of this criticism it is a pity that no action has been taken to rectify it.

Very happy customer!

Great service and prompt delivery. Parts all square and fitted perfectly. One star off for there being no pre drilled holes as described which complicated the assembly somewhat. It looks really good in situ.

Good value for money

Looks good, good quality timber too. Only negative was there was no pre drilled holes which made assembly a litttle harder, especially when constructing the roof

Hampshire Arbour

Delivery: The delivery was quick but be aware that you do not get a choice of delivery day, unlike Forest. You do get an email saying it will be delivered the next day and you do need to be at home to sign for it. Quality: The seat is generally made of substantial timber and is very heavy. It needs to be built where it will finally stand or have several people to help move it. It is more than 2 people can move any distance. The QC is poor. I had 2 serious faults and other minor problems. The faulty panels were quickly replaced but the faults could easily be seen and should not have been sent out. The customer should not do the QC for the supplier. When built it does look good. Generally I am satisfied with the product but with some inspection during manufacturing and better delivery options I would have been very satisfied. I will be staining the seat as I have since seen it in a garden centre, where it has been well weathered and it does not look too good in the natural state.

The sizes of the cushions for storage are 114 cm long, 48 cm wide and stacked on top of each other are 56 cm high. Would these fit in the box seat? What is the inside height if the box?

Robin Aitchison Asked:

I purchased the Hampshire Arbour last year and now want to build two planters on either side. Can you tell me what type of wood is used for the panelling on the front and sides so I can match it. I can't see anything that seems to be made up from a similar wood for the 'tongue and groove' effect. Have you any suggestions or do you know if some panels could be made up to suit?

We Replied:

Dear Robin Thank you for your question. These planters are from the same manufacturer: www.gardensite.co.uk/Garden_Structures/Holywell_Wooden_Planters.htm From what I am aware they are the same timber. If you wanted to double check you can contact the manufacturer on 01352 752 555. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

Robert Hinchliffe Asked:

The corner posts on my last arbour were set into the ground as an anchor. As the photo is unclear, could you confirm whether the corner uprights of the Hampshire Arbour go down into the ground or do they stand on the surface? This isn't a problem for me but it would make a difference when it came to the preparation of the ground beneath it.

We Replied:

Dear Robert Thank you for your question. The uprights simply stand on the surface, therefore it is important that when positioning this item that it is on a flat surface. 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
