Chestnut parquet block bamboo flooring used throughout this stunning holiday home in the Welsh countryside

Richard recently renovated an amazing holiday home in the town of Harlech on the west coast of Wales.  The property is a large, four-bedroom cottage with sea views and just moments from the beach. When Richard bought the cottage a few years ago, he wanted to modernise the interior to be stylish and fresh.  Furthermore, as it was going to be a holiday home let out to families, he wanted a hard wearing and easy to clean floor. When searching for a floor, Richard wanted something that would easily flow throughout the house, including four bedrooms an open plan living room, kitchen and dining area, and a connecting hallway.  The existing carpet in the property was old and needed replacing.  Richard looked at different types of flooring, including hardwood, laminate and tiles, before deciding on Bamboo. The exact floor Richard used was Solid Chestnut Strand Woven Parquet Block Bamboo Flooring, because it is more cost effective and harder than wooden flooring.


We love the contrast between the rich, dark, chestnut brown floor and the light and bright interior of this beautiful holiday home.

Strand woven bamboo flooring is a great choice as it is over twice as hard as Oak flooring and suitable for commercial properties.  This means that it will be able to stand the test of time with people coming and going from the holiday home.


The parquet block laid in a herringbone design adds character and charm to the whole cottage.  The continuity of the bamboo floor and herringbone pattern throughout the property really brings the rooms together. It gives a friendly and welcoming feel from the moment you walk in.

Bamboo is natural, characteristic and sustainable, so fits perfectly in this home. “The floor adds a warm and natural texture to our home and fits in with the other natural materials we have used.Richard from Harlech, Snowdonia.
