The award winning Zest Cheltenham Arbour is a fully pressure treated, seated arbour made from Tongue and Groove cladding with a small diamond trellis section at the apex of the roof.

The bench seat of this arbour is hinged at the rear and folds up to reveal a hidden storage space. The added hidden storage under the seat is a very useful addition to the arbour.

The gently curved shape of the tall stylish roof is made by the fascia, the roof is made from overlapping boards.

The innovative design, shape and functionality earned the 1st place in the Garden Industry Manufacturers Association's GIMA awards.

The Zest Cheltenham Arbour with Storage Box is delivered from central UK stocks held by Zest4Leisure. Depending on product size, one of two established carriers will undertake home delivery.


Typically, a 7.5 ton lorry will deliver. This will reach most locations an average car can. On occasion, a smaller 3.5 ton vehicle may be used for smaller items.


Unloading will take place at the kerb-side or onto your adjacent driveway. Vehicles will not leave the public highway. A driver may be willing to carry the goods into your garden at their own discretion. Goods cannot be carried through your home, therefore if necessary please arrange some extra help privately.

Free Delivery

This product benefits from a free delivery service within mainland England, Wales and Southern Scotland. The above postcode checker will confirm this for you.

Delivery Period

Delivery will typically be made within the period quoted on this product. For larger products, the carrier will call and book in a convenient delivery date. For smaller products, a delivery date will be provided by email from the carrier, which will include a reference to allow online tracking.

Extended Delivery

Less frequently serviced locations may be subject to an extended delivery period of up to an additional 7 days. These distant locations include the Scottish Highlands.

Offshore Delivery

Zest4Leisure deliver across mainland Great Britain. Therefore, for this product we are unable to service; Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Northern Ireland and all of the Scottish Islands.

Distant Surcharge

Due to additional delivery zone fees, certain Scottish Highlands locations (Zone B) can only be serviced at a distant surcharge (at cost). The above post code checker can confirm if a surcharge will apply.

These locations include:

Zone B = Scottish Highlands (AB, IV,  KW, FK19-21, PA36, PA38-40, PH17-26, PH30-41) at £14.99

For a limited range of bulky and/or extra-heavy products (gazebos and large furniture sets) to Zone B, the employment of a dedicated carrier at considerable additional cost is necessary. Such products can only therefore be serviced to Zone B locations at a bespoke Zone C rate of at least £149.99*. (*Zone C availability and cost confirmed on order receipt).

    A really good product! It arrived superbly packaged, and it was easy to build: could have been built single-handed, but asked my partner to hold a few bits while I got the screws at the correct angle. Everything was supplied, and everything fitted. It is now a very comfortable seat in the garden, and the roof and sides protect from the wind.

    Zest Cheltenham Arbour with Storage Box. Design - No clever flat pack design ideas here, try to get the fittings where they should be from studying the poor instructions, get someone to hold it in place then quickly get some screws in it before it moves. Hopefully it is in the right place, you will find out later. Instructions - Try and identify a part and guess where it fits, you should be able to get close by lining it up with other components which are fitted later on but there is a degree of artistic freedom in the final result. Construction - Incorrect assembly of the hinged seat assembly prior to delivery resulted in one of the seat base slats arriving cracked along its length, not a complete structural failure as there is an underlying carcass supporting the seat but not attractive and a potentially a bit splintery. We spent a lovely afternoon in the sun working out where the parts should line up with each other then trying to balance the barely supported back panels until the ill fitting roof could be hauled onto the top. I then added some supporting braces to the back panel, though it is probably okay with the extra screws I put in. The roof fits okay now, just a few gaps round the edges. Completed item - The overall effect from the completed item is quite good and it provides a nice place to sit in the garden. Additionally, the assembly did provide an interesting afternoon in the sun combining the efforts of a work out and a Sudoku puzzle.

    We are really pleased with the product now it is in situ. The wood is of good quality and it is a solid structure. My grandson and husband completed it today, working from 10.30am to 4pm with a short lunch break. Slight warping on the lift up seat which is ok when you sit on it, otherwise everything else is sound. Just need to paint it now once we agree on the colours!

    Arrived on time, in general it was well made it had slight damage but not worth sending back. I found instructions reasonably good maybe a little more detail would have been useful. Pre drilled holes for screws would've also helped

    Many of the faults told by others have not been ironed out like the roof section having come from 2 designs, screws of poor quality. HAVING SAID THAT, the arbour is now well used and loved, nobody sees the roof but the bird and they don't complain (I didn't complain only realised it after I had erected it) I have moaned but to tell the truth we love having evening meals in it, drinks and quiet moment relaxing in garden. Took about 4 hour to erect by a man in his mid 70's. Yes I would recommend anybody to buy one but check parts carefully.****

    We bought this as a retirement present for both of us. Took us about 5 hours to erect but we did it in the end. It's sturdy and looks really good in our garden. Going to paint it blue and white in a few weeks once the weather improves.

    Only one pack of screws supplied instead of three. Instructions were not very clear especially the assembly of the first pieces. Referring to photos on internet helped somewhat. However I think the product is excellent, well-made and a good price. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Oops... apologies that some screws were missing from the package. Please let us know if you still require these to replenish your own stock, as we'll instruct Zest to forward these to you.)

    A lovely looking arbour which provides good shelter. It was fairly easy to assemble and feels nice and solid once assembled. We didn't find the sloping back of the seat particularly comfortable and have now discovered that the storage box allows rain water to collect in the bottom, hence the four stars.

    One of the sides was warped, so could not get flush fitting. Tried swapping them around but no better (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Thank you for the feedback which we will relay to Zest. Natural, timber-based products are prone to movement, apologies if a component had excess deflection. Part(s) replacement remains an option if you wish.)

    Poor construction. Had to disassemble seat parts and reassemble after squaring up as they would not fit! (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Apologies for this isolated manufacturing issue with your seat element. The feedback has been relayed to Zest)

    Delivered safely & securely at the notified time, with tracking to show progress. Slight greenish blotches probably natural timber discolouration or effects of pressure treatment were covered with 2 coats of stain, which is readily applied whilst arbour is in separate sections as delivered. Some warping of timber meant slight trimming of seat-back piece to ensure best fit and secure fixing. Overall-good quality product and happy customer. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: You are correct, the "blotches" are a natural reaction between the salts within the timber and the pressure treatment process).

    After looking at many arbours, I decided on the Cheltenham because I liked the look of the upturned boat shape. The kit arrived on time but, unfortunately, one piece was missing and another slightly damaged. I contacted Customer Services and was dealt with efficiently and courteously and replacements were organised. These arrived by the appointed time, all intact. The person who assembled the arbour said it was easy and commented on how well-made it was. I am so pleased with this product - it adds such a lovely feature to my garden, and the added storage is a big bonus. It is now decorated with little solar lights and comes alive at dusk! I am totally satisfied with my purchase and a big thank-you to the Customer Services staff for their assistance, who deserve a 5* just for themselves.

    All pieces arrived. Just one slightly cracked panel, but we just reversed it so it would be hidden. You definitely need 2 people and it was a bit fiddly especially as our drill broke whilst drilling in the holes for the screws. Really heavy once constructed so best put together where you want it to finally be. We are going to put in some posts to help keep it in place in case it catches the wind. Now its up, it's really lovely and I love the design - just what we wanted, but not so expensive.

    Thursday 21st April 2016

    We have been very pleased with the arbour. My only difficulty concerns the assembly instructions. The back panels were supplied with 3 screws per side but required 4 each side. The assembly instructions did not make clear that the side panels were not symmetrical as the seat support timbers are of different lengths, so needed to be positioned correctly. A photo of how the two roof members are butted together would have been helpful.
