It’s often hard to define why something or someone is so popular. More often than not it’s more than one thing that captivates people and makes them swoon. What we do know is that the press and public alike have had a soft spot for our Montague Oak Range for a number of years, so we wanted to explore why. It’s been the feature of Country Homes & Interiors, House Beautiful, Ideal Home and The English Home to name but a few and it also holds the title of our most popular Pin on Pinterest…but what is so special about this range? We’ve looked a little closer at some of our favourite features of this classic range and some of the key pieces that get everyone talking…
Rural & Rustic
The first thing that most people notice about this range is that it’s a quintessential country classic. It’s a style that you can instantly imagine in a rural setting, even if you might want to use it for an urban home.
It oozes rustic country chic with a design that has been tried and tested through years of traditional cabinet making. Its timelessness is what many find so appealing. It has all the charm of a worn, rustic antique, with all the function you need for modern country living.
Our Most Popular Pin
If it was a popularity contest within this group, the Montague Oak Hall Unit would win hands down. Not only has this little gem been the feature of Country Homes and Interiors but it’s also our most popular pin on Pinterest. If you haven’t already visited our Pinterest page, take a look at the Montague range via our Rustic Oak Board or visit our ‘See What They’re Saying’ pages to find out what else the press love.
Wicker and Wood
Many of our Montague favourites offer this great combo of wood and wicker. We’re a huge fan of using natural materials and this range shows how the right balance of textures can work wonders together. The wicker baskets in this range are incredibly robust and provide some deep but accessible storage, particularly in the Hallway.
A 5 Star Favourite
You’ll be hard pushed to find any item in the Montague Range that’s received anything less than 4 out of 5 stars. Its reviews are consistently good, with the majority of the range receiving top marks for quality and value. Our featured Montague Oak Two Door Cupboard is a 5-star product; this humble little piece continues to make customers smile and you can hear their happiness in the reviews they leave…
“This is my third piece of this range well built and lots of storage look’s good”
“Great quality, well made and built to last – very pleased”
“This beautiful cupboard arrived promptly and it fits into our hall perfectly. This is our fifth item of furniture from Cotswold and we are delighted with them all. This company is highly recommended”

Practically Perfect In Every Way
While being beautifully rustic this range offers a multitude of useful function and practical storage solutions to assist with modern daily life. Providing everything from larder cabinets, shoe storage and hi-fi stowaways, you can find the answer to almost all of your storage needs by taking a glance across this beautiful range. One of our favourite new additions is our Montague Oak Butlers Table, practically perfect for breakfast in bed.
The Montague Range is so broad, you can find something for almost any room in the home. Being able to buy into one look for so many areas in the home will give you a great sense of consistency throughout your house. While you get continuity you also enjoy the unique properties that oak furniture delivers in spades. Through its varying grainy patterns and different shades of wood each piece is truly one of a kind and can never be replicated.
Creating a Classic Country Kitchen
If you’re looking to create a classic country kitchen the Montague Oak range should be at the core of your interior décor. This solid table and chairs are built to last a lifetime and will naturally become the hub of your home for decades to come. A piece of furniture like this and the rest of the Montague range will mature beautifully, each year getting better with age.
With over 30 different items across the kitchen and dining, it’s easy to find a reason to introduce this look, even if you’re not living in a country cottage with a flagstone floor!
Country Homes and Interiors were smitten with our Montague Oak Kitchen Dresser With Wine Rack and recommended it to their readers in the ‘Home Notes’ section of their magazine. They listed it as one of their 3 ‘Country Best Dressers, with a classic style that looks great in any country home’.
The English Home also love this piece without its dresser top, recommending it in their ‘Home Comforts’ section. They describe it as ‘Designed to suit a dining or sitting room. With space for 16 bottles of wine as well as two cupboards and three dovetailed drawers, there is plenty of room for glasses.’
