Somerset 5 Bar Driveway Gate

The Somerset, named after the county where Charltons Gates are based, is an all-time favourite.


This classic entrance gate benefits from a tapered top bar with superior hanging stile, joined using traditional hardwood stop dowelled mortice and tenon joints, providing maximum strength. Specially selected timber with fewer smaller knots is used resulting in a more stable gate, ensuring it is truly built to last. The Somerset has a planed finish along with detailed chamfering to the stiles, top bar and rails ensuring a smooth, attractive finish.Available from stock in our specially selected slow grown Scandinavian kiln dried softwood which is pressure treated for durability. The Somerset is also available made to order using kiln dried Iroko which is an African hardwood renowned for its durability and stability.

Standard sizes in softwood range from 3’ (0.915m) to 14’ (4.27m) wide, with a standard height of 3’7” (1.09m) to the top of the top rail. Standard sizes in Iroko range from 3’ (0.915m) to 12’ (3.66m) wide with a standard height of 3’7” (1.09m) to the top of the top rail. Iroko gates are supplied ready for treatment with wood preservative and a wood treatment of choice. Treatments should be applied prior to installation following treatment manufacturers  instructions.

Special sizes in both softwood and Iroko are available to order.

A drop bolt & socket set must be fitted (both gates if hanging as a pair  plus a loop over latch).
