About Us

Authentic British timber since 1979

We’ve been crafting British real wood flooring and cladding for individual homes and the hospitality trade since 1979. For over 40 years Coppice & Crown has specialised in producing exceptional solid wide board flooring with a width of up to 350mm, over double that of most commercial sawmills.

A demand for quality hardwood flooring to last for generations to come.

Sprouting to sapling

In 2011 Tom Bedford took management of the company and decided to dedicate his flooring to using only British grown wood.  Tom’s decision to specialise in creating bespoke flooring using only English hardwood gives the workshop a remarkably unique aspect compared to other flooring options.

Mature tree

As the business has grown Tom, along with his wife Polly, has been devoted to preserving the traceability of all the hardwood flooring and other timber produced. The conversion of tree to floorboard happens entirely in the workshop in Devon, using hardwood grown from certified British woodland and estates.

The entire process is carried out in our sustainably run workshop in Devon.

We live and breathe our wood

Tom and Polly have together designed and converted a dutch barn close to the timber yard. They have timber framed the barn, using wood cladding and real wood flooring in parts of the home. An inviting and natural space to spend their time when they’re not at the workshop. 

Designing and building using British timber helped to reduce the carbon footprint of the build. 

Our roots

We’ve grown organically since 1979 and have been supported entirely by our customers, the roots of our business. Repeat custom and word of mouth continue to be the main influences on the workshop’s growth. The combination of our exceptional knowledge of timbers and the recognition of each customer’s project mean we deliver an exceptional experience and product every time.

Our ethos is to produce exceptional boards for your individual order, naturally beautiful and sustainable.

Our branches

Coppice & Crown produce some of the finest real wood flooring in England. We can recommend some skilled, talented craftsmen for priming, sanding or laying. We don’t branch out into this ourselves.
