Reasons to buy
+Solid teak construction+Wheels make it easy to move around

The Oleron is the best wood garden lounger we've found: made from the king of garden furniture woods, durable and weatherproof teak. Not to worry, though, if you still like extra protection for your lounger; the Oleron comes with a matching waterproof cover. The wheels make it easy to move around and follow the sun, while the ergonomic design and cushion will help you get comfortable.

Best garden lounger with cushion

Material: FSC certified timber :
Size: H94, W56, D139cm:
Reasons to buy
+Durable+Pretty cushion design
Reasons to avoid
-Only two back positions

We love the elegant look and feel of this lounger from Argos – and the cushion, although not the thickest on our list, is really something special with its beautiful botanical print. The other thing we really like about this lounger is its versatility: its solidly built and can be left outside year round, but it's also foldable, if you prefer putting your lounger away for the winter months.

4. Seville Rattan Sun Lounger

Best rattan garden lounger

Material: natural rattan:
Size: H100 x W77 x D149:
Reasons to buy
+Natural material+Cool design
Reasons to avoid
-Will need protection in winter

The natural finish and unusual back shape of this rattan lounger make it highly attractive – in fact, it would make a beautiful lounger in a conservatory with a sheepskin thrown over it. Natural rattan is not weatherproof, however, and will need to be stored indoors in winter. See more of the best rattan outdoor furniture in our guide.

Best garden lounger set

Material: metal and textoline:

+Light+Great value for money

There's little to fault with this well-designed pair of garden loungers: made from durable and comfortable textoline over a metal frame, and weighing just 6 kg each, these loungers are perfect for the occasional lounge around, or as extras for guests. And the price is very good, considering you get two.
