where can I find one? I don't want a rotary line in the garden... I want to be able to neatly fold it back against the wall once I am done.

I have this one

I adore it!

wilkinson sell them. I got one from there. It's really great.

It's not as solid looking as the one taff linked you to - it's plastic. But it's sturdy and I can fit 2 loads at a time onto it.

And it cost under £15

There is an Ozzie wall mounted 4 bar one you can pull out and attach to far wall and then let back in - DH has been drooling over one (shows who does the domestic stuff in our house!). Cant remember make of it but from recollection looks v whizzy....

I've seen the wilkos one... maybe I should give it a go to try it. When it is extended, does it "get in the way", Taffe?

I had one like this in my mind... but buggered if I can find a local supplier.

How about one like this?

it doesn't get in the way, no. but then we have it in a spot so I can't see it from the house, underneath the terrace ( I hate seeing washing from the house ).

the only downside with it is it doesn't spin around like a standard rotary drier, so you have to walk around it to fill/empty it, but its no great shakes, really. oh and I do tend to forget the washing is out there as I can't see it grin

dinky... that sounds perfect! Prod your dh for more info grin.

thanks Pannacotta... unfortunately a line would be a hazard (and an eyesore - there is nowhere "discreet" for it to go).

I have a spot to put a line on but it's between the kitchen back door and the double doors off the living room... so it's not a big area but gets a bit of traffic. Being on this wall should mean that it's not obvious from the windows.

I think its called the Austral Retractaway - warning it is ££££s - but comes with a guarantee etc. Brabantia do a similar retractable one which is a heck of a lot cheaper...

thanks dinky... that's what I had growing up at home in NZ but not quite what I want.

PIL have the Brabantia one and love it, it's also got a grey cover so is quite discrete when not being used.

We also have the brabantia and it's great, really easy to fit easy for my DIY numpty husband grin.

Robert Dyas sold 2 types when I needed one and I got the slightly more expensive one as the cable seemed stronger. It's still going well 5 years later.
