A corner arbour such as the Sorrento offers an exciting way to make the most of your garden, utilising an unloved corner to create seating for up to four people. For outdoor lunches on clear summer days, simply pull up a table to make the most of the right-angled seating. When leisure is in mind, the addition of a cushion or blanket make this corner arbour an inviting place to retreat and unwind with a cold drink or a good book.

Thoughtful details in the design, such as the pergola style roof and four separate lattice panels, give the overall structure an intricate aesthetic that pairs well with any climbing plants that weave throughout it. The timber used to build this seating is smooth planed, ensuring your comfort. Any thriving garden deserves to be experienced from a spot as comfortable and picturesque as the one provided by the Forest Sorrento Corner Arbour Seat.The balance of geometry against nature will give your garden a refined appearance that is sure to receive a lot of attention from any visitors.

When it comes to the arbour’s construction, we have done our best to make certain yours will last for many years to come. The high quality timber used to build the arbour, for example, is pressure treated long before it arrives with you, ensuring that it requires minimal maintenance over the coming years. This treatment protects the timber from rot, damp, and weathering, and generally improves its long-term durability. Assuming the care instructions provided are followed, our 15 year anti-rot guarantee can save you from worrying about the issue of rot in damper seasons. If you would like to have additional protection and personalise the colour of your corner arbour, we recommend Protek paint for its huge range of coloured stains and finishes.

This arbour is supplied flat packed with detailed instructions and all the fixtures needed to complete assembly.

"Speedy service, nice quality product, but ...: We found this lovely seat via Google Search Engine which took us to the Elbec website. This is the best price we've seen this product. However, we ordered it earlier than we needed it back in March because the website said that the offer was ending 16th March. We feel we were mislead by that as the seat has remained at the lower sale price ever since (some two month's later!!!). So we've had to store the seat until this weekend when we were ready to build it.
The seat is good quality and sturdy. The instructions look very simple we worked out what needed to be fitted where. There seems to be four bolts now supplied instead of 8 screws for the seat, which makes for a stronger fitting, however they are not mentioned in the instructions. We met our first problem with the double notched trellis as we it doesn't say which way round it should be fitted. We tried calling the Technical Helpline provided on the fitting instructions, to find that this is no longer in service. We pondered over this for a further 45 minutes before working out which way round it went. It took us most of the day to erect, put into place and level. We then discovered that one of the trellis ends we'd put the wrong way round, (ie., from a matching perspective with the other pieces of trellis, so the slats at the same way - horizontals inside), would have been better if the instructions advised which way round to fit trellis. It was fairly easy swap it round even though it was built. It probably could have stayed as it was, but we perfectionists and want it to look right!
In summary, a nice piece of garden furniture, service excellent, misleading offer re price, requires better instructions, might be useful to have a video clip on website of how to build."

"Terrific Product: Goods delivered on time specified. Returned my e-mail query very swiftly(20mins). Very simple to assemble, although been doing DIY for over 25 yrs so found it easy. One minor point was that the screws supplied were not the best, but I backed them up with spare Decking screws I had that worked a treat! Very satisfied with the end result and look forward to many years of use. I would recommend the product & the service from elbec."

"better value than other companies for the same product.: friendly delivery team, turned up on time and carried the goods to the patio.
The product looks fine although one of the posts had been fastened on the wrong way round which threw me for a bit!
All in all a good value product and much cheaper than the same product advertised elsewhere"
