Default 75 trampoline inc enclosure (8ft) at B&Q

OFFICIAL MoneySavingExpert Post
What's this about?


There's an 8ft outdoor trampoline with safety enclosure half-price at 74.95 in the B&Q sale while stocks last.

A safety enclosure alone can cost 80ish and similar sets sold elsewhere are over 100, so it's a real summer steal if you can handle the fact it needs to be assembled by hand!

Where to get it



It seems to have sold out online, but 14 out of the 16 stores we checked had it in stock, meaning you can still order it online and collect it in-store for free. Find your nearest B&Q.


Thanks to personeys for this top spot.

It's tiny though, I'm sure the B&M Stores in Penrith were selling a 12ft trampoline for roughly the same money. And they had 8ft trampolines for less.

I reserved one online at my local store, only to get a phone call telling me that there were none in stock

Not everyone has the luxury of space for the 12ft one.


Edit: Assembled mine at the weekend - my 6 1/2 + 5 year old had no trouble playing on it together. The netting on this one sits completely on the outer edge (ie. not indented as I've seen on some) which gives room for their arms and legs whilst bouncing at the edge.

if any of you guys live near Watford - the watford branch of B&Q have loads in stock. It says that they have none online but if you call them they will reserve it for you. I collected one this morning and there was a whole bunch piled up outside the front entrance. hope this helps.

I got one yesterday at the B&Q in Bexhill and it's fab. My garden is not huge, so it's just the right size for us and my 2 year old absolutely loves it. A great find, Thanks OP.

Managed to get one at Bristol Imperial Park on Friday eve - my 9yr dd and 3yr ds have spent hours on it. Great size if you dont want your whole back garden taken over by childrens equipment.

I also got one last year, the 12ft one. It's great and kids still love it, but yes, the blue surround started splitting before it was 12 months old! Noticed on the B&Q site the review for this item was pretty poor due to the splitting surround. Deanos, did you buy a new surround? Can't see it listed.

Hi deanos,

Did you purchase the protective cover originally ?

Just wondering if it was the heat in Summer or cold in Winter that make it crack ?

Yes it was the one that came with the trampoline, the first one lasted about 2 months and it was in the summer, the new one is starting to go a little bit but its about 1 year old now, in winter i take the poles and netting off and put them in the garage and use a cover over the trampoline to protect it.

Just to say that Focus is doing the 10ft ones for 89.99 until Monday (including enclosure). If you have one of the Homemovers card you may have just been sent a card for 15% off until the beginning of September. If my maths is right this works out at about 76 which I think is a pretty good deal ;-)
