Review: Cottage Croquet by Garden Games

When I was little our friends up the road used to have the most beautiful croquet set which, much to my annoyance, they would take out only when the sun was shining and they felt like sharing a little joy around the neighbourhood.

Needless to say we didn't see it very often.

How I envied them that luxurious, perfectly-made, beautiful wooden set of childhood joy.

So when Garden Games asked me if I'd like to review one of their items my eyes lit up - at last the Croquet Crown would be mine!

The set arrived last week amid heavy downpours and unfortunately we haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I can still report on what we got and what I think.

The set is stored in a heavy waterproof canvas bag - easy for transporting and storing.

There are four hardwood 'mallets'

The traditional yellow, red, blue and black wooden balls (bagsie black!)

Six hoops and a winning post

The set is not cheap at £84.99, but everything in it is really well made and set to last a life time. So if you like garden games, can afford it and can count on a little bit of sunshine then I would definitely recommend it.

As for me? I picture Pimms and perfectly behaved children in Grandmas garden next summer..

Disclosure: The Cottage Croquet set was sent to me free of charge to review. All words, images and opinions are my own.
