    Some ranges will offer a choicee between a Woodburner for Wood Only or a Multifuel Stove for Wood and Coal. We can help you decide, based on; amount of use, your eco-preferences, practicality and cleaning. You can call them Logburners, Log Stoves or Dual-Fuel fires, we don’t mind.
  • Gas or Electric ?
    Gas stoves are a great option if  Solid fuel is impractical. Modern gas stoves are very efficient and easy to use. We recommend Bellfire, Gazco, Yeoman and Dovre gas fires. Electric stoves come with a plug and cable, ready to use for top-up heating and a great flame display.
  • Traditional or Contemporary ?
    There is lots of choice. Please visit our shop to see examples of stoves from modern Scandinavian and Traditional British manufacture. Traditional styles can now be fully up-to-date with the latest technology, see the Stovax Riva Plus range as an example.
