I have also attached photos of gates  fitted for you.
Thanks Paul - bespoke softwood boarded gates




Hey Mark
Gates look great - will send you a pic when they’re hung.
I have passed your details to my son as I think he may need some gates at some point!

Take care
John   - Iroko Kingscote & Woodmancote





Hi Mark,

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the gates and for completing our order so quickly. They’re absolutely superb and we’re really happy. Pics attached of them in-situ.

We’ll have an additional requirement late Summer / early Autumn and I’ll be in touch.

All the best to you and thanks again.

Steve - Oak Kingscote



Hi Mark,

I attach a couple of pictures of your gates installed. They've had two coats of Osmo UV oil and look magnificent and really improved the appearance of my house. My carpenter was really impressed with the quality of the gates and also the hardware that you supplied. I'm very happy that I bought these gates from. Thank you.

Regards, Peter - Iroko Kingscote



Shame you don’t have a facebook page, otherwise I would have posted this there.

Thanks to Mark at Ingestre Woodworks for the advice to get the right gate for us. A few email exchanges with great advice meant we ordered the right thing. From ordering to delivery was less than a week and we were kept well informed. Mark contacted me for a couple of clarifications.

Arrived in perfect order from the courier (how often can you say that?).

Now the 7”x7” post was heavy - as expected and that was the only difficult bit to lift with two of us. Once the post was on the ground the rest took 2 hours. Never fitted a gate before, but it was very easy.

Quality is fantastic and it looks great.

Hello Mark, 

Sorry its taken me over a year to thank you for the finest gates that one could imagine, i wish i had a £ for every passer by who has asked me where did i get them from.

Any way i just directed one of the many your way.

“From a sales point of view your gates don’t hang around — as a proud owner of your fine craftsmanship i can assure you they do“.

Thanks again

The gate is now fitted and we are very pleased with it. I’ve recommended you to a friend that is after one.

Kind regards

Hi Mark,
Thanks very much for the delivery of the fabulous Gates. We are very pleased indeed I'll send you better photos when we get the coach house finished but these will do for the meantime. 
Happy to recommend you in future, 
all the best

Thank you so much for the Oak gate  made to our spec- it is absolutely perfect and even better than we’d anticipated from the pictures.

Hi Mark,
It’s always a bit of a gamble ordering things sight-unseen !!!
The gates you made for me arrived exactly when promised yesterday after very helpful ‘phone call from your couriers.
Just have to say that they (the gates) are in every way better than expected !!
Sizing is exact & quality far superior to anything obtainable locally !!
Surprised to find stainless bolts throughout (not galvanized) & neat routing on top rail a nice touch
Thanks !!!!!!

Hi Mark,

thank you for the fantastic oak table you made for us. Excellent service and delivery. So nice to deal direct with a craftsman these days. I will be back next time I need something made.
Many thanks John - Sheneale Table

Hi Mark
Thank you for your first class service, gate has arrived and is excellent.
The gate is as it states on your web site, well made, quality timber,
super fast service and delivery top notch.
Great communication all round keep up the good work.
Barbara - Oak woodmancote gate


Hi Mark. Just a note to let you know that your two delivery guys have just brought the table/bench set. It required some skilful manoeuvring, which they managed with good humour! I am delighted with it. It can always be a risk ordering something on-line, but I can honestly say this looks even better than it did on your website. The wood is beautiful and very well finished - love the coach bolts - and many thanks for providing the larger parasol hole. Just hope that Husband is as delighted with it as I am!

   Sally - Sheneale table and bench set


Delivery of your bench has just arrived and I am over the moon with it.
Quality all the way thanks for a top class item that in 20 + years will
still be a top class item.

Richard - Oak slatted back bilmor seat


Hi Mark,

A quick note to let you know that the two five bar gates I ordered arrived safely today, and I am absolutely delighted with them. The quality of the wood and your workmanship is excellent. You probably know this in any case but the courier service was also very good.

It will probably be a few days before I get around to fitting them but I will let you know how I get on.

Tony. - Iroko Woodmancote gates


just wanted to say that we have taken delivery and that the gates are not what I was expecting! The craftmanship is very good, the construction is flawless and they are finished to a high standard. Very impressed, spent five minutes checking one of the gates over for faults and gave up!
Thank you so much, will most definitely recommend you to everyone


Hi Mark,My gate/posts that you made for me arrived today.Thank you very much for your quality workmanship.I am extremely pleased with everything you sent.
Richard - woodmancote gate, posts and fencing


Hi Mark

Just wanted to thank you for the excellent service and the fantastic gate we
received from you, I'll be ordering another larger gate from you in the new
year and maybe an exterior door too. I've also recommended a neighbour to
you who needs some gates.

Thanks Again.

Kind Regards

Matthew - oak field gate


Many thanks for the 3 gates for St Mary's Church, Speldhurst you made
earlier this month. I managed to get them installed last week and they
look great. There have been many complimentary comments. Thanks once again
Sandy Scott


Hi Mark,
Have taken delivery of the oak gates you made - this afternoon (Sunday). I must say I am very impressed with the delivery (Jock is a very nice guy) and the quality of the gates, posts and ironmongery.
The whole shopping experience has been a pleasure from start to finish with excellent communication throughout.
Just on a week from order to delivery is very good.
I contacted 9 companies for quotations – 2 did not bother to reply, 4 offered standard size gates and the other two were over £800 delivered. Your price was the most competitive.
When I have hung the gates I will take some pictures and send them to you if you want.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wanted a new gate. Even my neighbour is tempted to replace his 25 year old gate with a new one, after seeing the ones you made.

Thanks very much again.
Kind regards
Paul Turner - Woodmancote oak gates, posts and ironwork


Dear Mark
Just to let you know that my custom oak field gate arrived at 9:30pm today Sunday – That’s 48 hours after I placed my order on a Friday night from over 150 miles away !! – Very impressive!
The delivery service was great – they called twice to check if it was OK to deliver on Sunday, and to give an ETA. It arrived as promised – no complaints!
Thank you
Ian - Standard oak gate and posts


Dear Mark

Hi Mark,
Just a note to say how really pleased we are with the bench which arrived this morning.
My wife says it looks even better in real life than in the photo on your website.
The design and build is is fantastic and it is unbelievably heavy. I don't think we would have found this quality and value anywhere else in UK.
Many thanks,
Peter.             - slatted bilmor seat

I should like to say that I am really pleased with them. They are very well made and look as if they will last foreever. I also thought your price for them was very reasonable. If I need more gates in thte future I shall come back to you.
Best Wishes
