Weltevree (a swing in a tree without a branch)

weltevree swing

One of the most romantic things I can imagine is a sweet little cottage with an orchard behind it, a few children running barefoot in the grass and a swing in one of the apple trees. An old table in the middle of the grass with a colourful table cloth and a jug of fresh lemonade on top of it. Perhaps some homemade apple pie as well?? You get the gist.

I love this idea so much that I was bummed that when we moved into our current house, our backyard did have a tree but not with branches big enough to attach a swing to.  Thankfully I discovered the swing from Weltevree, which can be attached to any vertical structure — lamp posts, poles, and trees without big enough branches!

We gifted the children the swing for Christmas four years ago, so we’ve now had it in our backyard for more than 4 years. It is keeping up super well, and it is played with all of the time. Big kids, small kids, alone or together — our swing is constantly in use.

I know the swing doesn’t come cheap, so I was a bit hesitant to write about it without knowing that the investment would be really worth it, but I feel now it is safe to say that yes — it definitely is.

So if you dream of orchards, barefoot children, fresh lemonade and swings in trees, this Weltevree swing might be your cup of tea as well!

Thanks for sharing this neat find! We are lucky to have a garden full of trees but not one of them with a good, sturdy branch for a tree swing. I’m so glad there turns out to be a solution.

Have you ever had to replace the straps?
