Southern Timber is one of the largest Timber Merchants in the South West. Based near Newton Abbot in Devon they supply a wide range of structural timbers, Ply & MDF materials, insulation and flooring for new house builds, loft conversions and extensions. Many visitors wouldn't realise that this busy merchant started life as a farm diversification specialising in timber for agricultural buildings and fencing applications.
The Ipplepen yard in Devon maintains large stocks of square and round posts, suitable for garden and rural fencing applications. Square posts are kept in sections up to 200mm square for farm and driveways gates, lengths of 3.6 and 4.8 metres are also available. Sawn timber farm gates and planed driveway gates are available from stock, solid entrance gates are made to order. We have a large range of Fence & Panel products in stock ranging from items such as Featheredge and square section boards or lattice, trellis and designer panels.
Many cutting lists are received for agricultural builds including barns, tractor sheds, stable blocks and field shelters. Estimates and Sales Orders are the responsibility of a dedicated team of 12 full time and part time Office staff, most estimates can be completed immediately but others may require quotes for long or bespoke timber sizes. Large section timbers, Stock walling, Yorkshire boarding and other cladding timbers are kept in stock for collection or delivery. In addition to large comprehensive stocks available on site there is access to an extended product inventory at docks and associated mills. If in doubt please ask about availability.
Next Day Delivery
Next day delivery is available for our normal delivery days (Monday to Friday) and normal delivery areas. Stock deliveries in and out are handled by a flexible team of experienced staff. Deliveries are made using a fleet of vehicles ranging from a small Transit, through flat bed lorries and up to three different sized lorries. Our main delivery area is the South West of England but we also deliver larger quantities of varying timbers to many parts of the UK mainland.
We operate Cash Accounts which operate on a "pay-as-you-go" basis, and can be opened instantly for regular trade customers. The Monthly Account works on an 'end of next month' basis, e.g. all September Invoices are due at the end of October, this account requires the completion of a simple application form, two references and a credit agency check.

I have to confess I will never be Southern Timber’s biggest customer, but that is one of the reasons I would like to say thank-you for the service that I receive. My house is situated about 1/2 mile from the Yard so I normally collect my few bits of timber, cut them up and go. It is very rare my purchase is greater than £50 but I am always treated as though my business matters, that friendly treatment applies to the lads in the Yard and the folks in the Office. It is obvious on some days that they are under pressure but they still (somehow) manage to raise a smile. Based on this quality of service I have bought my decking and fencing timber from Southern and had that delivered. While I understand that they can’t do timed deliveries the timber has always turned up on the day promised and pretty much always with a cheerful driver. So much better than the indifferent plodders that turned up with my blocks. In all thanks for the service, thanks for the timber and thanks for much lower prices than those well known DIY and Builders merchants – I won’t mention their names just in case.
