Thanks for your question. The widows peak is accessed by a stair leading to a hatch in the roof.

Thank you for your question and sorry for the delayed response. This is actually a chair, not a bench and its from Country Casual, the Graceful Teak Rocking Chair.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 30 Dream Decks for Lounge Lovers
A simple rocking chair is a great choice for whiling away the hours gazing at the sea.
Rachel Grace added this to Look Out for a Widow's Walk Revival
Oftentimes you'll find a widow's walk and a chimney next to each other. This was originally designed to allow easy access to the chimney for maintenance.
