The Zest Dorset Arbour is a fully pressure treated, seated arbour made from Tongue and Groove cladding with small diamond trellis sections.

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 roof is made by the fascia, the roof is made from overlapping boards.

The Zest Dorset 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).

    What a lovely item this is. Very well made and easy to put together. Would definitely recommend this arbour and One Garden. Easy to deal with, overall a great experience.

  • 5 out of 5   , Maidstone, Kent.

    Monday 12th October 2020

    Excellent product warranting 5 stars for quality and I wont reduce that because of these minor irritations!! First, the initial instructions are not clear as to where the first (front) and second (rear) panels are fixed. The pictures could be better in close up and would save some words. Also, there are no pilot holes as indicated in the instructions and finally a couple of places could done with a bit more "finishing". A bit of sandpaper would not have come amiss. As a reasonably competent diy'er these things did not cause me a problem, but for others they may have experienced some issues. But as previously mentioned a great product, which looks great when painted. (Paint everything before assembly!!) (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: The screw pilot holes are to be undertaken by the customer as per the instructions, using a 3mm drill bit (or a bradawl) as described. With external pressure treated timber having an initial high moisture content and prone to settlement/movement, the pilot holes should be formed on install to avoid misalignment.)

    The first delivery of the product had apparent broken or splits to the structure, all seen before unpacking.The unit was also wrong in so much that it was a combinatIon of two different Arbors. However, having reported this back to the sales team, it was collected within two days and the correct one delivered about two- three days after that. Product: fairly easy to assemble but did not have pilot holes in any of the structure to ease the screw fixing. The storage box does let in water as the slats of the seat area and the front of the box are not tongue and grooved together. The Arbor sits well on the patio and we think it a reasonable acquisition for the price paid

    Arbour came with easy to follow instructions, it’s sturdy and comfy. Best to paint it before construction. Looks fabulous in our back garden, my favourite place to grab a few peaceful moments.

    Saturday 20th June 2020

    Very happy with the overall product, a couple of the pieces were slightly warped and needed "a bit of help" to get them to fit, and a few more screws would have been handy as I had to use more than supplied. Otherwise very happy with the finished product.

    Monday 15th June 2020

    After initially being delivered with 2 damaged panels which were replaced within 3 weeks we got the arbour built tho not the easiest of jobs. Would have been helpful to have had marking as to where fixings were to be. Had a lot of guesswork and a few extra drill holes before getting secure fixings. Now built it is a sturdy lovely addition to our garden.

    Pre delivery service very good. One complete package missing, ie only 2 packages delivered. Outstanding package delivered within a couple of days.
    Some parts quite warped, particularly seat back, therefore difficult to construct. Floor panel does not fit accurately, leaving a gap along the front side. Overall pleased with the item.

    Great looking arbour which was reasonably easy to assemble. Shame there were no existing pilot holes as this made the assembly process more complicated. Also noticed that the storage area is not waterproof.

    Excellent service. Arrived when expected. Product easy to assemble but required an extra pair of hands but that could be due to the fact that we are in our late 70's. Very pleased with how it looks and will certainly keep your website in mind if requiring any other garden products.

    Package arrived and following the instructions the complete structure was in place inside three hours - very pleased. Thanks

  • 4 out of 5   , Leicestershire.

    Wednesday 04th July 2018

    I'm pleased with it, now its up, and my friends have admired it. But when it was delivered I was a little disappointed as the wood was damp, looked a little 'unfinished" and 3 pieces had cracks in. Having said that, once I contacted one garden, they explained the dampness was probably down to the wood being impregnated with preservative, and they immediately sent 3 new panels without question. So top marks for customer service. Finally - I would not have been able to put this up myself, as there are no screw holes marked or drilled. The instructions were good, but you definitely need an element of DIY skills. so only buy it if you can do it, or know someone who can. It is not like an cupboard flat pack.

    Package arrived on time. Well packed. Easy instructions. Simple to assemble. Once painted and assembled, positioned and used. Dog loves to take it over.

  • 3 out of 5   , Barry.

    Tuesday 19th June 2018

    Arrived in 3 boxes - well packed and protected. Trial inspection and assembly carried out prior to delivery to recipient for birthday. This was worthwhile as it revealed a number of minor faults - batten for storage box misaligned - staples securing base had missed their target completely - small hinges securing seat panel were very loose - actually an inadequate size. An otherwise good product let down by final quality control

  • 4 out of 5   , Cambridgeshire.

    Monday 11th June 2018

    Item arrived when promised but the seat was damaged. A replacement was sent but took 6 days. Easy to assemble once the holes were inserted. Roof assembly found to leak when raining and water penetrates the seat so nothing can be put in the box area unless waterproof. Quality control could be improved but value for money otherwise.

  • 5 out of 5   , Lydd.

    Friday 08th June 2018

    Excellent value for money. No problems with self assembly, fairly solid & heavy, just help required to move to final position. No hesitation in recommending.

    Monday 21st May 2018

    The Dorset Arbour was an Xmas present from my mum and it's only this week I've managed to put it together! It's a good solid item, not a flimsy thing and good value for money. It would've been helpful if the screw holes had been pre drilled, as I wasn't expecting to drill the holes and found it difficult at times, especially as the wood was very hard in places. I also had great difficulty in getting the bottom part of the storage box in place and had to take the small front panel off, but I got there in the end! Now it's in place, it looks lovely and is comfy to sit on, even without a cushion, so I'm a happy bunny.

    Arrived on time but there was some damage to several parts, mainly split wood. Instructions were unclear and on poor quality photocopied paper. Pleased with end result due to persistence of my construction team.
