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 Zest 4 Leisure. 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, FK19-21, IV, KW, PA36-40, PH17-26 & 30-41) 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).

    Ordering process was easy, good price, e-comms were pretty good. Delivery was a let down, four bundles of parts in heat shrink packaging slung in the back of a van with one guy trying to carry them on his own, we weren't even asked to sign for them or give a name on receipt. Unpacked them week later to find instructions and fixings were missing, quick phone call and sorted in a couple of days. Spot on. Now constructed and it place, looks great, the wife is happy.

    End product is great but we had to request instructions and screws as they didn’t arrive with the Arbour. Also no holes at all which made it difficult to assemble and one of the strips of wood at the side wasn’t very secure. Must admit though it looks beautiful, cannot stop admiring it

  • 4 out of 5   , MK16.

    Nice product. Quite easy to assemble, but it should of had some Pilot holes in sections, but it had No pilot holes! (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback. Where the instructions mention "pilot holes" this is a customer instruction, allied to the provision of a drill and bit to undertake this locally to any screw positions as you progress through installation. A hand tool, such as a bradawl, would do this as well. Bolt holes are pre-holed, however screws are not.")

    Friday 18th June 2021

    It is now finished and erected, looks nice but had a couple of problems. Delivered on time and in several polythene covered packs which was good. All parts were there plus instructions but downloaded some more as larger format was better. For the not so expert DIY the immediate problem is there were no pre-drilled holes to select correct place for screws as in instructions, spoke to their technical dept. but not very helpful, put the screws where you thought they should be, they said!! As a frequent DIY'er not too much of a problem but took longer than necessary. On completion very sturdy and upright. Very hot weather soon showed some sections of wood were skimped so gaps appeared, had to use mastic filler prior to painting with water based fence paint. Roof was the worst, but since we probably won't sit out in the rain will live with it. Overall it looks good and secure but not sure whether value for money hence only 3 stars.

    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.

    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.
