Email Enquiries to us David & Catherine

We prefer to keep things straightforward by using one email address.


Interesting Timbers
Wells Road, Emborough
, Somerset

Tel:  01761 241333

Some enquiries will take longer to reply to as we have a large volume of timber in stock so it can take quite a bit of time to move the timber stacks and look at all of the timber in order to select a board with your sizes, timber grading and characteristics finding those boards that are just right for your project takes time.

We will need to email you, we may not be able to confirm availability straight away or pricing over the phone (some patience on your side may be required)

Email -quoting

Your email enquiry is important to us; we do receive high numbers of emails and calls, we aim to respond within 1-4 days.

On some occasions it may take longer than this to reply, please remember that we will be looking at boards to find 'the one or many', just right for you.  If your project requirements are detailed and specific and if enquiry demand is high, this process may take around 7 days.

Due to the volume of enquiries we receive on a daily basis we do not communicate with clients via Facebook or Instagram, these accounts are used to occasionally post images of our Interesting Timber and Timber Products.

Rural Broadband & emails

Our email service is provided via remote countryside broadband; as this is a 'rural' service from time to time we experience difficulties sending and receiving emails.

If you haven't received an email response within a few days please call our office as we are happy to help you and to check that your email has been received.
