From: £178.94 Incl. VAT

Please select your configuration below:

SKU: GODLS-C Category:


Bead & Butt Oak ledge doors are a classic for period properties.  They are found in all styles of homes from country cottages to barn conversions.  Bead & Butt doors use specially profiled verticals to create a moulded feature that adds interest and style to your new oak ledged doors

We can easily make custom-sized doors to suit all your needs. You can choose the timber grade, different styles from a plain door, to doors with a bracing pack, glass openings and all the accessories, we can even pre-finish these for you if you prefer.

The grades available are Rustic, Select Rustic and Prime Grade. Each one is dependent on knots and character. Prime is our highest quality grade, with minimal thumb-size knots. The rustic grade is our most cost-effective door. It is perfect for older properties that want to reflect more traditional and hand made doors. Select rustic is a good ‘in-between’ option!

If Bead & Butt is not your style, we also offer a V Grooved option.

We handmake all of our doors in our factory in Sheffield using predominantly French oak sourced directly from the sawmills in Southern Normandy, Loire Valley and Bourgogne areas of France.  Our production staff construct the doors by gluing and pinning the ledges then hydraulically pressing them.

Timber Grades

Heritage offers its oak ledged doors in 3 grades, which determines how much character and knots you will receive in your door. Have a browse through the information below and the various grade images to get a feel for what each of the grades can look like. Remember that each grade represents a band and so there will be variations between doors, however the following information should help you to understand what your new door will look like.

Rustic Grade Oak

Rustic oak doors are designed to match the style of timber that would have been used in period to make this style of door. We keep all of the character that you will find in rustic oak, from colour variation to minor splits and large knots. Anything that is a larger feature we will fill for you, however by default we leave the door unfilled to retain all of its natural charm. This timber grade will not be for everyone, but if you are looking for something as original as it gets then this is the one to choose

Note: On rustic doors we manufacture the ledges using finger jointed lengths of solid oak. This helps to produce good quality ledges in the most cost effective manner.

Select Rustic Grade Oak

Select rustic ledged doors take all the great features of our rustic ledged doors doors but significantly upgrade the timber used. These are by far the most popular doors as they offer a great balance with enough knots and features to create a rustic cottage feel but without the large features found in our rustic doors. Where we find a knot that shows daylight, we will use filler, but this is generally a small area only.

Prime Grade Oak

With the prime grade, we take this one step further. Prime timber is carefully selected out to create a much cleaner looking door, which works well in a contemporary setting. We look for timber which has minimal knots which allows the visual focus to be on the grain pattern.

Prime oak ledged doors also work wonderfully well with some of our wide range of finishes.

Standard and Custom Sizes

These oak doors are available in the following sizes: -

2'0'' x 6'6''/610mm x 1981mm

Custom Oversize - Doors over 2'9'' x 6'6'' in EITHER dimension.

Note: We'll make oversized doors for the quoted price up to a maximum size of 2100 x 950. If you need something even larger than that, please give our sales team a call and we'll quote accordingly

Please note that custom doors will take around a week to manufacture.



We also offer our own superb ironmongery sets, made in hand forged steel and available in either an antiqued beeswax or a pewter finish.

Each kit contains 2 x 18" (450mm) strap hinges, specially designed with strengthened hinge assemblies to take the weight of solid oak doors without sagging. The kit also contains a substantial thumblatch complete with locking pin. Finally a set of matching screws is also supplied.

Another alternative to the thumblatch set is to use our unique Cottage Latch. This latch is a more substantial option than the thumblatch and uses a plate screwed to the door with ring handles. Bracing Pack

Selecting a bracing pack adds the diagonal braces to your door. In the past these were necessary to stop the door from sagging over time, but with modern manufacturing techniques this is no longer the case. Braces are now purely an aesthetic choice.

Braces are available as either a loose bracing pack for you to fit yourself, or we can install them for you. If you elect for us to install them you can let us know which orientation you would like them fitted in, left side or right side to the top.*

Glass Opening

We can also manufacture your door with a glazing opening. Selecting this option will mean we let in an opening to the door, and supply the door with oak glazing bead. We do not supply the glass.

If you would like a particular size glass opening then please let us know, otherwise we will make the opening to the full width of the inner boards

* We'll default to fit the braces right side to the top unless you tell us otherwise


We can also pre-finish your door for you if you prefer. If you select this option, we will apply the finish of your choice from our wide range. All of our finishes use a hardwax oil top coat, which creates a wonderful subtle finish to the oak whilst protecting the timber. We can finish your new Ledged door in a Traditional Clear hardwax oil or you can choose from one of our colour tones.

Please note that a prefinished door is considered a customised door and cannot be returned. If you are unsure about the finish you prefer then we recommend ordering a sample or ordering your door unfinished for on-site finishing.Please note - to fit into our spray facility, the door is hung onto an overhead track meaning the door will contain two small screw holes on the side of the door. Please be aware of this before ordering.
