I don’t know what budget you have so I’ve reviewed several gazebos at varying prices to help you decide on your favourite.

I’ll also give a list of reasons why I’ve chosen that type of gazebo and what it’s capable of doing.

Unfortunately, the furniture inside is not included but similar or if not better furniture can be found on Amazon when attempting to buy.

First up is the Rowlinson Willow Gazebo available on Amazon.

Rowlinson Willow Gazebo

Rowlinson Willow GazeboThis delightful piece of garden furniture really compliments any homeowner that takes great joy in what their garden looks like.

As a structure itself, it really does look the part with its weaved roof and horseshoe lattice sides.  It really does add a very distinctive cottage, countryside feel to your garden.

This appealing willow gazebo provides your garden with extra character with its very open, six-sided hexagonal shape with lattice sides.  On touching the rustic wood sides and roof of this gazebo you can instantly feel good quality and that it’s really well-made.

These types of gazebo are often bought as a relaxation place to get away from the hustle and bustle, and even just to get away from the T.V with a nice book and possibly a cuppa or a glass of wine.

Now let’s find what you get when you buy.

 Main Features

  • Great Look & Simplicity

As mentioned above the Rowlinson gazebo really does transform any garden into a tranquil haven enabling you to escape from the world.  It’s easy to assemble so you can relax in it in no time at all.

  • Design & Location

As it’s hexagonal its very easy to place it in a corner of your garden without that ‘shoved in a corner look’.  When deciding where to put your gazebo preference would be about a couple of feet away from the edge of your garden to prevent bugs, etc hedge-hopping onto your shelter.

  • Craftmanship

Real high-quality craftsmanship has built what the Rowlinson is today.  These types of gazebo that last a long time aren’t made by being thrown together.  If they are then they don’t stand the test of time.

  • Roomy Inside


There’s easily enough room for 2 people to relax comfortably inside on comfy chairs.

If you intend on using it to eat in then you can buy a nice wood table and chairs where you can eat in comfort outdoors.

You should actually be able to get a table and 4 chairs inside at a push.

  • Price

There are several gazebos that are on the market in the ‘wooden gazebo’ category that are massively overpriced and yet, don’t even get close to matching the quality of this outdoor structure.

Understandably, the price of this one is certainly not cheap but I believe for a relaxing wooden gazebo it offers great value for money.

In a Nutshell

Rowlinson is renowned for making well made outdoor structures.  Their quality products generally stand out from the crowd in terms of quality, style, and price and those aspects are generally most buyers important features and requirements.  This product is recommended by us……

Actually, the next review will be of a Summerhouse.  Quite often these types of structures are only slightly bigger than a gazebo but have more functionality.

Best Features

  • Smart Design

The smart design really does maximise the garden space taken up by this Summerhouse.  They really are very spacious inside and the simplistic interior design really does mean you can add lots of decor and furniture.

  • Large Doors & Windows

The large windows in the door really do let a lot of light in.  Just imagine them frosty mornings with that little bit of chill in the air and you’re sat cosily ready the paper whilst the suns rising. Imagine it…..

The doors are also of good quality and can easily be opened fully to get more furniture in, whilst also having a lock and key.

  • Treatment

This product will arrive with a factory base coat already applied, however, it will need to be treated.  Using a 5yr treatment will suffice and don’t leave it too long before you apply it, otherwise, you’ll regret it later.

  • Range of uses

As mentioned previously, the range of uses is immense.  It’s basically a strong, waterproof outdoor building that will let you spend countless hours in your garden.  You can also add lights and a small heater to prolong your enjoyment.
