Welcome to G S Haydon & Son

G S Haydon & Son Ltd is a Devon Joinery company that is run by the same family since we started trading in the 1920's . Our objective is to produce quality Joinery and maintain excellent relations with private customers, trades people and architects while seeking new customers to work with. We have traded within South Molton in Devon for nearly 100 years supplying all manner of wooden products within Exmoor, Dartmoor, Devon and Somerset. Some of our most common carpentry services in Devon are:


  • Solid Wood Windows including casement, sash and stormproof style 
  • Solid Wood Doors suitable for cottages, town houses, barn coversions, modern style and anything inbetween
  • New! Remote Joinery Surveys for flexible appointments
  • Solid Wood Stairs made to measure to suit your requirements
  • Interior fit outs including wardrobes, kitchens and general storage
  • Heritage Joinery for Listed Buildings
  • Bespoke Mouldings to match existing profiles
  • Repairing Joinery
  • Conservatories 


We have nearly 100 years experience in the Joinery trade after being established 1926 and still operate from the same small Devon market town of South Molton. We began as a Wheelwrights business and evolved into a joinery business through the years. This has seen us encounter nearly every type of joinery project in our  workshop and gain a great deal of knowledge. It can be reassuring to know that you are dealing with a business that has been making solid wood joinery longer than most people have been alive!

We provide our joinery service mainly in the Devon, Exmoor and West Somerset area although we do also work in Somerset and Cornwall as required. We have supplied our Joinery to other locations too and we are open to discussing work with clients outside of the South West area. We supply and fit our joinery along with applying any finishes and making good. This makes things more straightforward for our clients, saving the hassle of liaising with separate fitters, painters etc. We are also happy to provide our joinery on a supply only basis too.

We work from a modern and well equipped workshop on the Pathfields Business Park in South Molton in Devon. Our experienced team work hard to deliver quality joinery products, combining our modern equipment with traditional hand skills to ensure a quality outcome. The core of our team of Devon joiners have been with us for a long time making quality joinery and we actively train apprentices to ensure skills are passed on. For our repeat customers this creates a close family feel where employees are often on first name terms with our clients.

To get a true impression of us and what we offer, we welcome any clients to come and visit us in our joinery workshop (please call to arrange) and see for yourself what we do. This gives you the chance to see work in progress in our workshop, giving you a realistic view of what to expect. A great deal of clients are repeat business and referral. New clients are always welcome and can call us on 01769 572 134 or email us on our contacts form. We look forward to hearing from you!
