Made in the UK
One Garden is proud to support UK-based manufacturing. Products with this mark are directly sourced from official manufacturers in the UK.
Sustainably Sourced Timber
The timber used for this product was obtained from a managed resource, where responsible forest management and re-planting are employed.
Professional Installation (optional)
Where offered, for an extra charge, professionals will come to install the product. Customer to provide an an appropriately sized, firm and level base.
Wood is placed into an airtight tank, by vacuum the air is replaced with preservative. This superior process extends lifespan allowing in-ground use.
Shiplap Tongue & Groove
A tongue & groove boarding offering a smooth planed finish. Each upper face is shaped with a shallow curve to offer a shiplap, overlapping appearance.
A Shire Arbour would make a beautiful addition to any garden, giving the benefit of a covered seating area into which you can relax.
The six-sided design has an almost oriental feel. While this arbour has no glazing, it would make an excellent small summerhouse-like getaway for your garden.
Tongue and groove cladding forms the walls, floor and roof, with styled balustrades for the more open areas.
Full instructions will be supplied upon delivery, along with all the fixtures and fittings needed to install the arbour.
The Shire Arbour is delivered from central UK stocks by the manufacturer. Shire's own experienced personnel undertake delivery to ensure your goods arrive in a perfect condition.
Shire operate mostly small, flat-bed trucks. If a dustbin lorry can reach your property, Shire should too. Limited access? Please call us prior to ordering to avoid a costly abortive delivery.
Unloading will take place at the kerb-side or your adjacent driveway. Vehicles will not leave the public highway. The driver, at their discretion, may be willing to carry the goods to your garden. Shire will not carry goods through or into your home, therefore you may wish to arrange some extra help privately.
Shire offer a free delivery service within Central and Southern England, as indicated by their red zone on the map below. The above postcode checker will confirm this for you.
Pick A Day Delivery
For products on '7-14 days' delivery located within the majority of Shire's free red zone, during the checkout process you will be offered a calendar which allows you to select a preferred delivery date. Shire will endeavour to deliver on the date you have chosen. You will be promptly notified in the rare event that an alternative date is necessary for logistical reasons. As some distant red zone locations (such as BA postcodes) are serviced on a 2-day (overnight) run, the actual delivery day may vary by +/- 1 day of the date chosen. The following red zone locations are excluded from the Pick A Day service; BB, BD, BH, BL, BS, DH, DL, DT, FY, GU, HG, HR, L, PO, PR, SO, SP, SR, TA, TS and WN. Note: When an installation option has been chosen, a Pick-A-Day selection will not be offered; due to additional, post-order labour scheduling.
Delivery will typically occur within the period quoted on this product. For those products outside the '7-14 days' offer, you will be given the opportunity to chose your delivery date via Shire's online booking portal; a link will be sent by text or email a day or so after order. If a date is not chosen, Shire will notify you in advance by either telephone, text or email to confirm their date of delivery.
Less frequently serviced locations such as those outside Shire's red zone, may be subject to an extended period of up to an additional 7-14 days. These distant locations include North and South-West England, Wales and Scotland.
Installation (Extended Delivery)
When an installation service is chosen the product delivery period will increase by approximately 14-28 days, to accommodate additional labour scheduling. Therefore, a '14 Day' self-assembly delivery will become a '28-42 day' installed order. Once placed, Shire will issue an installation pack by email to explain the standard of supporting base required (concrete, paving etc), to enable installation to proceed. Installation scheduling will only commence once the customer returns the base and access information Shire request, including images of their existing base. A prompt return is advisable to avoid delay.
The only offshore location Shire deliver to is the Isle of Wight; PO30-41. A green zone delivery charge applies to this island.
Shire does not service the following distant onshore locations; Northern Ireland (BT) and Scottish Highlands (IV4+, KW, PA20-78 and PH19-44). These form the yellow zone as shown upon the lower map. All offshore locations are excluded too, examples being; Guernsey (GY), Western Isles (HS), Isle of Man (IM), Jersey (JE), Orkney (KW), Shetland (ZE) and Scottish Islands (PA & PH).
Due to additional Shire zone fees, certain distant locations can only be serviced at a surcharge (at cost). The above post code checker can confirm if a surcharge will apply.
These locations include:
Orange Zone (CF,CH,LA,NP) at £30.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £132.00)
Blue Zone (CA,EX,LD,NE,SY) at £36.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £168.00)
Green Zone (DG,EH,G,KA,LL,ML,PL,PO30-41,SA1-18,TD,TQ) at £48.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £264.00)
Purple Zone (AB,DD,FK,IV1-3,KY,PA1-19,PH1-18,SA19-73,TR) at £78.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £360.00)
This map offers a visual impression of the four surcharge zones. Delivery is free within the central red zone. No delivery service is available to the yellow zone.

We are extremely happy to have purchased one of these Shire Arbours. It arrived very quickly after we placed our order and was delivered by a very polite and friendly driver from the manufacturer. We opted for self assembly which was quite straightforward following the very detailed instructions provided. Definitely a two person assembly as suggested, but not too time consuming. Although we bought ours in the autumn (taking advantage of the reduced price), we are already looking forward to making the most out of our new purchase. We would definitely recommend this item.

Generally a good product, a couple of the panels had splits and the structure not as stable as I would have expected. I had a professional team erect it and they were fairly impressed with build.

Ok for the money, a lot of the pieces do not line up properly & consequently make it difficult to get together (I'm a joiner by trade) it needs 2 people to get together but I managed it by myself using cramps & temporary supports, medium to low grade timber is used (twisted timber & knots etc) once assembled it looks good but is very rickety, I needed to put extra bracing in to stop this, is it worth the money? In my opinion just about, I suppose you get what you pay for, would I buy another? Probably.

I recently purchased the Shire Arbour and what a great experience from start to finish. Communication was great. Delivery lad was lovely. The quality of this is really good. Needs 2 people to build and it took around 4 hours. As it says in the instructions itís worth getting a tube of clear sealant to do inside each roof joint to ensure itís completely water tight. Overall Iím chuffed with this purchase and it looks fab in the corner of my garden.

First class product - all components delivered in one go and on time. Everything fitted together as in instructions. Some diagrams need to be clearer but all was good in the end. The product does need quite a lot of preservative if you follow instructions for full protection. We gave it two coats. Our arbour is admired by all our visitors and we love it.

Relatively inexpensive but poorly constructed, many nails had to be replaced where they protruded, several boards split. Crucial to seal roof boards to prevent rain dripping through. But after reworking, renailing and staining has been admired by many

This Arbour is good value for the price we paid, under £400.00, and the delivery was on time. If installing this yourself you must ensure you start with a nice flat level base, once you have this assembly is reasonably straight forward. I would also put over-paintable mastic between all the sections especially the roof sections, before fitting to ensure it's totally waterproof.

Fantastic Value product very good assembly instructions. Easy to assemble if you carry out general diy. Definitely need a battery drill/driver. Completed assembly on my own without help. The roof was in six segments and requires a step ladder to help with assembly. I decided to paint each part before starting to carry out main assembly, roof walls and sides all different colours and it looks fabulous. I mounted the floor on a brick support base to keep it from constant moisture. Driver unloaded the unit from the lorry (small lorry) to the driveway in a few minutes and texted me 15 mins before arrival. Each part was easily carried through a normal size doorway to the rear of my property. The two largest pieces being half the size of the base. I had only one problem which I intend to discuss with the manufacturer and that was that the roof segments were all bowed in the centre of each side of each roof segment by 5 mm in the centre so that they didnít fit correctly, only touching in the centre. This may have been just my unit but seemed strange it was the same on all six. I used an electric planer to correct this and all now fitted perfectly. I think that it might be better if you use slightly longer screws to attach the last three roof supports, the screws supplied were a little short I used 120mm 6mm screws instead of the 80mm supplied.

Delivery process excellent, informed of exact time & very helpful friendly driver. Husband painted with 2 coats Cuprinol shades first before erecting. Fairly easy job but took a bit longer as he did most of it alone. Sturdy construction. Any fine gaps in roof sealed with clear silicone so will be waterproof. Good arbour for the price! Looks lovely in corner of garden & cosy inside. All in all very pleased!

I am very satisfied with my Shires Gazebo. However organising the delivery by Shires was somewhat fraught. They require photos of the prepared base and its surroundings (for installation to avoid an abortive journey). I was told the delivery vehicle would be the size of a dust-cart, so I forewarned neighbours- then a small vehicle arrived. They said the office would give me a 4- hour time-slot - they didnít! The driver would phone when 30 minutes away - he didnít. So my complaint is with Shires and perhaps you should investigate!? (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback, of which delivery elements may have been misinterpreted or sadly given in error. (1) Vehicles are smaller than a 'Dust Cart', this reference is given as "...if a Dust Cart can reach you the delivery vehicle can" to offer reassurance. (2) Shire's system sends an automated 4hr delivery slot estimation by SMS the day before delivery. (3) No, drivers do not call, they can be tracked via SMS tracking link issued on the day. We apologize that an impression was given that a call would be made.)

It was easy to put up - my wife and I did it in less than a day. Although good value for money it is a bit wobbly when finished so I braced each panel diagonally with a bit of 2" x 1" timber - it's now pretty rigid. Applying preservative after it is erected is a pain - do it while it's in pieces. Altogether well pleased with it.

We assembled our arbour in a couple of hours, without any problems. The finished product looks really lovely, itís pretty well made and solid. We would recommend it without hesitation. We have knocked a star off as a couple of boards in the pre-assembled base have worked loose in a couple of weeks.

My diy skills are not the best but the gazebo we got from you was very easy to construct, the instructions were clear and concise and with my wife assisting the job was completed in about 4-5 hours. The product is well made and looks great, we did have a issue with a small piece of trim having a split in it but after an email to your customer services a new one was dispatched, excellent customer service as well. Well done and thank you.

Good clear instructions. No missing bits. Some of the components, notably the posts, needed a slight dressing with a plane or sandpaper to avoid splinters. It went together well although the roof panels were a little more challenging than the rest of the gazebo. Some additional sealing might be required to make it more waterproof. Otherwise very good value and a pleasing result much admired by all!

Parts of arbour arrived in poor condition. Reordered parts. Delivered parts still in poor condition. So desperate to stain and erect arbour I am repairing and making good myself. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear of the quality issues experienced. On reviewing your positive order history none of the above had been reported to us; we assume you chose to contact the manufacturer directly. We remain at your service though should you require further support.)
