We love hammocks so much that in 2010 we set up Simply Hammocks, selling the worlds finest hammocks. We ONLY sell hammocks we would want to own ourselves and after speading happiness to thousands of gardens around the UK, we consider ourselves experts in all things hammock!
All our hammocks come with 12 month warranty and free delivery, and if you have any questions we are here to help.
There are many different fixings and ways to hang a hammock. It can go between two well spaces trees using our adjustable fixing ropes, on one of our sturdy stands, or it can be fixed to walls or posts. We even have a special stand for people that only have one tree in their garden.
This largely depends on how well you care for it. Some of our customers are using hammocks and stands that are over 5 years old, but most of our customers tend to replace them every summer to bring a new colour into their garden. All our products are made to the highest standards, with TUV and GS quality marks, meaning they will be far superior to anything available elsewhere.
How far should a hammock hang off the ground?
Ideally, your hammock should sit about 120cm above ground level, so you can easily get in and out of it. Of course, you can hang it as high as you like.
All our hammocks can be left outside, but some materials are better than others for repelling rain and sun fade. Hammocks made from 100% polyester, parachute-silk, or Elltex can all be left outside, although we still recommend bringing them in to dry to prevent mould. Our Brazilian cotton hammocks ideally should be kept dry. Learn more
All our hammocks are tested beyond the weight capacity we advertise. But, we still recommend using it as a guide when purchasing. We have categorised our hammocks into single (one person), double (two person) and family (2+ people). When ordering a hammock and fixings/stand together, ensure the capacities are suitable for your use.
