Excellent advice there Busy Bee.
Last year I managed to buy a white metal garden bench for £15 from Wilkinsons. They are crafty, they slowly lower the price but keep your eye on them if you have one near you.
What I have done also is put up a bargain arch, Gardman on Amazon are reasonable and put the seat underneath it - economical arbour for what £30
Also you could maybe put a few small square slabs into the gravel to break up the look of it.
