English Oak flooring is inimitable with unrivalled depth of character and a truly, timeless quality. Unique growing conditions, namely lots of space and light around the Oak trees, result in lots of epicormic burrs, which create beautiful cat's paw knotting throughout the timber. We produce our engineered English Oak flooring in three grades: Pippy (Cat's Paw),  Select and  Pippy-Select  English Oak flooring. All manufactured at our Somerset factory in single-strip, wide-plank 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 Manufacture

English Pippy Oak Engineered Flooring

We proudly manufacture our English Oak flooring from start to finish at our Somerset factory. We use our native Oak wisely, producing engineered as opposed to Solid English Oak flooring. The solid English Oak lamellas that we slice to form the  wear-layer, reduce the Solid Oak used by two thirds. We also manufacture our engineered English Oak flooring in mixed-width floorboards only (125mm up to 260mm wide). This is also the traditional method of producing Oak flooring, using every available inch of an Oak tree without waste. Our floorboards are always in long random lengths (median 2.4m). A longer length specification up to 3.5m is subject to availibility of timber and +15% on listed prices.

 English Pippy Oak Flooring

English Pippy Oak flooring provides beautifully unique, luxury wood flooring brimming with character and timeless allure. Characteristics to expect include a swirly grain, with lots of cat’s paws knotting and small knots. This unquestionably beautiful timber is sometimes called Cat's Paw Oak flooring due to the charming way in which small knot clusters sprinkle the boards. English Pippy Oak flooring is (in my view) enhanced by a UV / Hard Wax oiled finish, adding to the depth of character, golden tones and warmth of this quintessentially unique and British floor.

Engineered Select English Oak Flooring

Carefully hand-selected as our clearest and finest grade. Select Oak displays a straighter grain, and a small smattering of  pin knots. We produce our Select English Oak flooring in mixed-width floorboards only  - minimum width 125mm up to a maximum of 260mm.

The Select English Oak floor above has a UV Oil finish ; a clear low-lustre oil applied in our factory to enhance and protect the Oak floorboards. A clear Hard Wax or UV Oil finish instantly develops a golden patina, enriching warm golden hues, which gradually deepens over time and exposure to sunlight.

English Pippy-Select Oak Flooring

English Pippy-Select Oak flooring is a beautiful combination of the two grades. This grading of English Oak provides a classical floor with an element of unique character. The English Pippy-Select Oak floor above was finished on-site with a hard wax oil, which protects the flooring and creates a rich golden patina which improves like a fine wine over time (and exposure to sunlight).
