The Countryside Carpenter: hand-crafted with love and conscience

Bespoke garden birdhouses, window boxes, window shutters, beds and tables are just some of the beautiful crafts The Countryside Carpenter offers for your home and garden. Based in Appledore, North Devon (UK), Ruthie Harvey, the shop owner, is passionate about the environment. As such, the wood and materials used by her shop are recycled, upcycled and repurposed, wherever possible.

The Countryside Carpenter’s products are designed and hand-crafted in their tiny workshop, based on the individual requirements of each client. And actually, they love to see photos of their pieces once they are in use in the homes or gardens of their clients.

Though they claim to use sustainable and reclaimed wood, remember it’s always worthwhile reviewing where the materials come from!
