Glenda and David Isaac, Exmoor

UK Hardwoods natural wood used as flooring in a cosy sitting room

On the Western edge of Exmoor National Park, close to Bratton Flemming, your’ll find Leworthy Farm Cottage. Glenda and David Isaac have spent their time lovingly renovating this former farmhouse, putting back its character and charm and using UK Hardwoods oak along the way.

Glenda is the founder of the South West boutique store, The Pink Rooster. Being able to come back to a relaxing, warm and characterful home is important for a busy lifestyle.

The couple have used UK Hardwood’s wood to create a beautiful home. Stairs, flooring, beams, balustrades and porch details have all been sourced from the sawmill here at UK Hardwoods. Glenda and David used UK Hardwoods from the beginning of their renovation and have discussed and seeked advice throughout.

The house has been fitted with Character Oak flooring. They chose not to sand the oak floorboards because they wanted to experience a rustic flooring for the farmhouse. The Character Oak has been used as bedroom flooring and living room flooring to create a relaxed and warm atmosphere. Complimented with hide skin rugs, a mix of leather and suede textured sofas, and tweed mill blankets on beds, the couple have created a luxurious retreat with rustic charm.

Our Character Oak flooring has been used in the en-suite bathrooms in the couple’s home, creating beautiful natural spaces to relax and unwind. Our wide Oak floorboards create space and amplify the bathroom sizes, creating a sense of luxury.

Nature is integrated into the home by using Oak as a predominant material within the interior design of this home. As you walk through into the garden room, your eyes look through glass paned Oak framed doors to the everlasting view of valleys and fields. Then, stepping onto the staircase, your feet are met with the warm soft texture of chunky Oak slabs to continue on from our Character Oak flooring.

Using our Oak flooring and other Oak timber throughout connects this house to the environment around. It’s a clever mix of outdoor rural landscape with luxurious home comforts. Glenda and David have recently sold this beautiful home and have recently been back to the yard to use our Character Oak flooring in their new home too.

“The house looks fab with all of your flooring throughout, we’re really pleased with the results.”
