English Oak flooring is inimitable with an unrivalled depth of character and  truly, timeless quality. Unique growing conditions, namely lots of space and light around our native Oak trees, result in lots of epicormic burrs, which when the timber is sliced, create beautiful cat's paw knotting throughout the floorboards. We produce our engineered English Oak flooring in three grades: Pippy (Cat's Paw Oak ),  Select Oak and Pippy-Select  English Oak flooring. All are manufactured at our Somerset factory in single-strip, mixed-width floorboards in luxuriously long lengths. The English Oak is our most iconic tree, woven into our history, and remains at the heart of everything that put the great into Great Britain.

 

British Manufacturer

 

Kiln-Dried Waney-Edge English Oak planks - we slice these into lamellas to created the Solid Oak layer of our engineered floorboards

 

We are proud British Manufacturers and produce our English Oak flooring from start to finish at our Somerset factory. We use our rare native English Oak wisely, producing engineered as opposed to Solid English Oak flooring. The solid English Oak lamellas that we slice to form the hardwood wear-layer, reduce the Solid English Oak used by two thirds.

 

Mixed-Width Engineered English Oak floorboards during production - all knots are hand-filled and ready to be sanded

 

We produce our engineered English Oak flooring in mixed-width floorboards only. This is the traditional method of producing Oak flooring, using every available inch of Oak with the least waste. We maximise on lengths wherever possible, to also minimise waste. This means that the  majority of our engineered English Oak floorboards will typically be in long random lengths (median 2.4m). A longer length specification up to 4.0m is subject to the availibility of timber at the time of production and +15% on listed prices.

 The end result - Beautiful English Pippy Oak engineered Flooring

 

English Pippy Oak flooring is beautiful, highly unique, luxury Oak flooring brimming with character and a timeless allure. Characteristics to expect include a swirly grain, cat’s paws knotting peppering the floorboards and small knots. This unquestionably beautiful selection  is also known as Cat's Paw Oak flooring due to the charming way in which small knot clusters sprinkle the boards.

English Pippy Oak flooring is (in our view) enhanced by a clear oiled finish. A clear oil finish instantly develops a golden patina, enriching warm golden hues, which gradually deepens over time and exposure to sunlight, adding to the depth of character, and natural warmth of this quintessentially unique and truly British floor.

Engineered Select English Oak Flooring


 

Select English Oak flooring is English Oak at its most classic. Select English Oak is selected for its natural beauty and character; a natural mixture of some almost prime Oak floorboards, others may be scattered with  pippy knots, heartwood, beautiful grain patterning and colour variation.

Natural imperfections are part of the beauty of a timeless Oak floor,  you may see slightly larger knots and checks (cracks across the growth ring) . These 'imperfections' are hand-filled with a reactive Oak filler, carefully chosen to complement rather than exactly match the timber. It cures to a greyish colour which when oiled / lacquered reacts and blends to a dark brown Oak shade. Although each and every floorboard will always be naturally unique, these are the qualities to  expect within this beautiful selection of English Oak.
