Ampleforth Arbour

The Wooden Garden Arbour that is perfect for sharing

Designed in Wales, this Ampleforth Arbour is created with enough space for two to three to sit comfortably and enjoy the garden no matter what the weather. It is an investment you will not regret.

Its extra deep canopy is not only stylish but provides additional shelter to extend time spent in the garden. The ergonomic shape of the bench extremely comfortable and sturdy, allowing you to relax more comfortably for longer.

Quality, comfort, and flexibility at a great price

Our stunning Ampleforth Arbour is crafted from the finest slow-grown softwood from ethically managed forests chosen for their natural beauty and durability.

It is classed as an easy build for self-assembly, focusing on your convenience and giving you fewer components which are simple to assemble with clear instructions and helpful step-by-step videos. We estimate it will take 2 people about 3 hours to assemble.

It is made with quality pressure treated timber that is backed by a 10-year guarantee against rot. This pressure treatment is superior to other treatments due to the preserving agents infused deep into the timber rather than just the surface. When it has been newly treated, there may be a slight green tint which will weather over time and take on a more natural looking colour without rotting.

The Ampleforth Arbour has been made to a high standard, so you can enjoy using it all year round, for many years to come. This beautiful garden piece is perfect seating for two to three on those summer evenings.

And for those chillier evenings…

Why not invest in an outdoor heater or fire pit, so you can enjoy your arbour on those cooler days and nights too?

    The finished arbour looks great but I had to make some adjustments to the assembly instructions. New central bolt holes had to be drilled in the seat as the pre-drilled holes were out by about 5 cm. Fitting the roof in one piece was never going to happen as it was too heavy and unwieldy and there was a risk of damaging the roof supports. Instead I fitted the roof simply and single-handedly by attaching one side to the lower roof support and then lifting it into place, where it was propped up from below in approximately its final position. The other panel was then lifted into position and rested against the first panel and screwed to the roof support, after which the roof capping was added. The whole assembly was then screwed from above to the side posts and the fascias then attached before removing the prop from underneath. Hey presto ! I noticed that the side and back panels had gaps in the bottom which would allow water to enter but not escape, which could potentially lead to the panels rotting prematurely. To prevent this the gaps were filled with sealant and overpainted. Stainless screws were substituted for most of the assembly and the arbour finished in Zinsser Allcoat exterior satin paint.

Most of our rivals use cheap palletised delivery services which will only deliver to your front door.  Unlike Rattan and Teak, they do not offer expert assembly, furniture installation and rubbish disposal services. 

If you purchase from them, it will be your responsibility to assemble your furniture, move/install it into its final place and to dispose of the cardboard / pallet waste.  This can require specialist tools, can be physical challenging and can also be time consuming.

Many of Rattan and Teaks products are very heavy and/or require specialist assembly.  We offer 3 levels of optional Assembly and Installation Service, Gold, Silver and Bronze which reflect the time and effort required to assembly your furniture.Rattan and Teak Delivery Service

All of the wood used for the Ampleforth Arbour comes from ethically and sustainably managed forests. This furniture is designed in the UK and the furniture makers only use the finest grade FSC certified softwood known for its outstanding rot resistance. So your furniture should last you many years, if maintained responsibly. 

The furniture will have received a pressure treatment of a wood protection before it is delivered to you. This protection has an excellent penetrating and dispersing action that gives an even coverage and is non-hazardous to humans, animals and is harmless to plants, it won’t blister or peel as some poly-urethane products do.

If the furniture is not treated then it may start to turn black then silvery grey during its first year due to pollution, algae and mildew. Outdoor furniture needs regular cleaning as you would with any items which are outside continuously such as cars, window frames and patios. Varnish and creosote are not recommended. Clear treatments are also not recommended as they lack pigment (colorant) which protects the furniture from UV rays which will result in the deterioration of colour.

Covering the furniture may cause mildew, damp, sweating or wet rot especially if covered for a long period of time i.e. throughout the winter. If you do cover any timber, air circulation is vital and so buy a cover that can fitted without touching too many parts of the furniture.

Wood is a natural product and may expand and retract according to weather conditions so don’t be alarmed if you see some minor cracking, splitting, warping and shrinkage. This is a natural occurrence in all types of timber, especially in hot weather, usually on tops of chairs, ends of tables and ends of arms. The cracks will close when it rains or the weather is cooler. Cracking will not affect the stability of the furniture but it may be necessary to periodically check the tightness of the nuts, bolts and screws and tighten if necessary (do not over tighten). Treatment can help to reduce splitting as our treatment replaces some of the natural oils lost from evaporation.

Resin is occasionally present in the timber and is of no detriment to the furniture. Should this appear then wipe with white spirit.
