Wooden Garden Gates
You don’t want a garden gate if it doesn’t make you feel private and secure. We make all of our gates ourselves, which means that we know just how sturdy and reliable they are. We never make anything that isn’t of the highest quality, improving the security and privacy of your private garden oasis.
When you buy a garden gate from us, you’ll be choosing a gate made using both traditional and modern methods. You’ll be buying a gate built with 70mm thick planed mortice and tenon framework, 4×2 planed bracing, inset boards, chamfered and routed edges. That’s why you’ll be impressed that your new garden gate is so much more durable, secure and attractive than your last one.
Your new Village Gates garden gate will be installed using high quality ironmongery. You can choose from a galvanised silver, black on galvanised or a stainless steel finish. We’ll hang your gate using adjustable hinges. You’re also supplied with a ring latch, with the option of having a key lock installed for extra security.
There are quite a few different designs for you to choose your new garden gate from. Take a look at our gallery for some ideas and perhaps some inspiration. If you already have your own vision for your perfect garden gate, get in touch and let us know. We are experts in designing, manufacturing and installing garden gates, and will help and advise you in your project.
‘Just a short note to say thank you for completing such a professional job. We are very happy with the quality of finish of our two gates and the high standard of customer service. It is such a pleasant change for work to be carried out when we are told when it will be and with the minimum fuss! Thanks again.’
Wooden Side Gates
A side gate provides you and your home with that extra bit of protection and privacy, while adding something functional and beautiful to the side of your house. Having a barrier between the front and rear of your home means that you don’t have to worry about any unwanted visitors accessing your home from the side. All side gates bought from Village Gates come with a guarantee of durability and security.

Our Commitment To Quality

As a friendly, approachable team, you can be sure we have the answers to any of your questions, and can work closely with you to make sure you have the highest quality work, that is absolutely perfect for you, your personal style and your home. We never skimp on quality, and always go the extra mile to make sure your gates will stand the test of time. We carry ourselves and our business with ease, honesty and integrity, so you have the best possible experience when you work with us.
We also use the highest quality materials to ensure the longevity of our products.
Our Softwood gates are made from Scandinavian Redwood, which is a light coloured, high quality, affordable and very popular softwood timber. It naturally has a beautiful reddish hue, with tight knots in the wood, and will take treatments and wood stains very well also. Scandinavian redwood must be treated regularly to maintain its strength and appearance, but with a little love and care, will last for a long time and keep its good looks for years to come.
We have a variety of hardwoods available for our gates, including Idigbo wood, a West African timber which is often used in joinery because of its strength and durability. Idigbo is our most popular hardwood, and is a pale wood with an appearance similar to a light oak, so is very beautiful, and takes stain very well so can be stained many different shades. It is incredibly strong and is also naturally moisture resistant, so will last for many years. It is a bit more expensive than our Scandinavian redwood, but is very good value for such an appealing and durable hardwood.
Iroko is another West African timber, and is the most valuable wood variety we offer. Iroko is often referred to as ‘African Teak’, due to its appearance and natural properties, but is also very similar to oak, with many of the same properties. Iroko wood comes in a variety of colours and shades, ranging from light to dark brown, and often has irregular shading. Iroko has traditionally been used to build boats due to the presence of its natural oils, as well as its durability. Iroko wood needs regular treatment and maintenance to keep its brown colour, but will remain strong and durable even without treatment. If left untreated, it will turn to a beautiful silver-grey hue over time.
We are very proud of the high-quality materials we source for our wooden gates, and always ensure we source our timbers sustainably. Our craftsmen ensure that with the right expertise and the right materials, your gates will be strong, beautiful and reliable for many years.

Do I Need Planning Permission for My Driveway Gates?
If your driveway gates are less than 2 metres tall, then no you do not generally need planning permission for your driveway gates. However, this can depend on the location and type of building.
What Types of Garden Gates are There?
There are a few different types of garden gates available on the market today that you can choose from.
Types of garden gates include:
Do I Need to Think About How My Bespoke Gates Will Open and Close?
Yes, absolutely! Swinging or sliding gates are usually common on flat driveways. Sliding gates will need room either side of the gate opening, whereas swing gates will need room in front and behind to allow the gate to open and close.
If you live on a slope, or your driveway is slanted, then a swing gate may be harder to install. It may also be quite heavy to open or close, depending on which angle your slope is at. Electric gates or sliding gates should be considered in this situation instead.
What are Wooden Gates?
Exactly what it says on the tin – wooden gates are gates made from timber. Wooden gates provide a more rustic, natural and country feel. Closed panel wooden gates give your property more privacy when closed in comparison to barred wooden gates.
How Will My New Bespoke Gates Be Attached?
We can attach your gates to wooden or metal gate posts either side of your opening. We can also attach them to brick or stone piers if you already have them in place.
How Do I Know Which Design to Choose for My Bespoke Gates?
Take a look at our gallery to get some ideas of the types of gates that you like. Our testimonials will also give you a good idea of what has worked well for some of our other customers. The point is, the only way you will know which design to pick is by having a look around and seeing what’s available.
Most of our customers will choose a design and style that matches their property, so perhaps think of the materials you already have and match those? You can also seek the advice of a reputable driveway gate company, like the team here at Village Gates, who can advise and recommend styles to suit your exterior.
What Colours Can I Choose from for My Driveway Gates?
The options are almost limitless when it comes to choosing a colour for your bespoke driveway gates. Many of our customers like to keep the colour of the original material, which is especially true for wooden gates and garden gates. However, you can paint your gates in pretty much any colour you like!
What Areas Do Village Gates Operate in?
We are based in Warrington in the North West of England, but we can provide quality driveway gates the full width and breadth of the country.

Client Work Take a look at some examples of our work
Village Gates were hired to manufacture and install a long lasting quality set of hardwood gates in Hale to suit the characteristics of the clients home.
This particular project uses Iroko, a durable west African hardwood known for it’s quality often used in the boat building industry. The Chester design involves a swan neck top with spindles to make a beautiful set of gates with character.
The boards were sprayed before being inset into the frame ensuring the gates are treated throughout. All tops are chamfered so water does not build up allowing for maximum performance.
Village Gates were hired to install a set of modern hardwood double gates in a block colour to match their fencing and front door.
The gates have a minimalistic square top with horizontal boards, a very popular design for those looking for that contemporary feel.
The gates are finished in a jet black finish. Village Gates use a quality Teknos stain that can be matched to RAL numbers and Farrow & Ball colours so our clients can have that fully matched finish.
All boards are stained before being inserted into the frame so when wood expands and contracts, there are no unstained surprises between the boards.
