Quick Overview

Our Character Grade Oak Flooring is machined from sustainably-sourced solid European oak timber. The wood has a light biscuit tone and contains some splits, checks and plentiful open knots of varying size. The knots can be filled and sanded to a smooth finish if preferred.

Board lengths are typically between 1.8m and 2.8m but some may be supplied shorter or longer than that, depending on timber availability at the time of machining.



Our Character Grade European Oak Flooring is our most popular wood floor. It has universal appeal and looks great in either traditional or contemporary settings. When finished with oil, the timber has a golden biscuit tone which gives a lovely light and airy feel to any room.

All the raw timber we use is sourced from either PEFC or FSC certfied suppliers. The timber is kiln-dried to a moisture content of 8-10% and kept at an ambient temperature in our heated and humidity controlled factory. All our wood floors are manufactured to order, from the same batch of timber. We pre-plane the boards before final machining which results in accurately machined floorboards which are extremely straight, flat and a pleasure to fit. Mass produced imported floors are not made, or quality controlled, to the same high standards as a British Hardwoods wood floor.

Lovely oak flooring
We are very happy with our new oak floor. We chose to have the knots filled and the oil finish which looks really good. Our joiner said the boards went together very well and it was the best floor he has fitted.
