Holmsley Mill is a name synonymous with high-quality oak craftsmanship.


Holmsley Mill lies between Lyndhurst and Christchurch in the New Forest which was established by William The Conqueror as hunting group for the gentry. Since then, throughout history, Holmsley Mill has established itself as a source of employment for local craftsmen turning out superior quality finished products as well as traditional sawn timber.


More recently, an association with Oakcraft, the leading oak framed building specialists, gave birth to OakCraft at Holmsley Mill. The enlarged business combines Oakcrafts’s substantial expertise in high-quality oak garages, conservatories, garden rooms, stables, offices, annexes, pavilions, barns, poolrooms and oak framed homes with Holmsley’s unrivalled tradition of woodmanship.

Our Ethos

OakCraft offer a new approach to the centuries-old skill of oak framed buildings using our unique and patented OakCraft Joining System. The Patented Jointing System and oak are at the heart of a project whether for a standalone building or which needs to fit exactly into the demands of adjacent property or historical precedent.

Attention to Detail

The traditional oak frames designed and manufactured by OakCraft are key to the stability, strength and appearance of buildings. Care paid to other details is also important to the overall effect and finish. It is Oakcraft’s attention to these aspects which has contributed to client satisfaction and thereby to the firm’s success.

Individual Buildings

All OakCraft clients are individuals and treated as such. No standard, pre-designed or other buildings are kept in stock. All are created exclusively to order on individual basis. Oakcraft oak framed buildings include but are not limited to home offices, garages, annexes, conservatories, complexes, pool rooms, barns and garden rooms.
