Hi, my name Rhydian Davies and I run Cottage Oak, based in the Towy valley in Carmarthenshire, West Wales.
I have 15 years’ experience in the trade and been working with wood since I left school at the age of 16. I received an apprenticeship and went to Ammanford college for 3 years to do my carpentry and joinery qualifications NVQ level 3.
In 2005 I started my own business and began to work more and more with oak. Oak has become a passion of mine , as it is such a beautiful and versatile timber. After a growing interest and demand to supply oak frames and flooring I decided to start up a new business called “Cottage Oak” specialising in oak flooring and framing.
We take pride in our ability to offer you a highly professional, reasonably priced quality service.I look forward to hearing about your projects and helping you develop them.
We love our oak and I’m sure you will to.
Oak is one of the most durable floors you will find and why you see it in common areas with lots of traffic. Oak flooring is placed in malls, pubs and other indoor public locations. Its strong durability is also what makes it great for your home. It can handle tons of pressure as well as dirt and grime.
Oak is recyclable, with current trend of more people going green; this is one way to do so.
No one will argue the beauty that oak possess, with its beautiful grain, knots, cats paws and medullary rays. It will add beauty, charm and elegance to any property.
Oak is an affordable hard wood. It is also cost effective since oak flooring generally increases the market value of a property.
Its availability and its ease to harvest, mill and dry, make oak a very popular timber. It is sourced for a wide range of uses, barrels for maturing whiskey and wine, cabinet making and joinery products, panelling and flooring, gates and fences, oak beams and oak framed structures. The oak that we sell come from sustainable resources and is available with the pefc sustainability label on request.
