Info & Guides
Our traditional stoves are all multifuel wood burners that can run on a number of solid fuels including coal, wood and eco fuel. The design is based around the archetypal British wood burning stoves, designed to fit into fireplaces and provide superior heat and even cooking opportunities. Traditional multifuel stoves give that classic feel to your home and provide a lovely, comforting warmth. Nothing is better on a cold winter's night than snuggling up in front of the roaring fire created within your traditional multifuel stove.
Why choose a traditional stove over an open fire?
Traditional multifuel stoves have many advantages over an open fire. The main being that they are far more efficient, a properly set up traditional stove gives you great control over the burn rate of your fire, allowing you to adjust your fire to your heat requirements. You will also notice that incorporating a stove the same size as the fireplace provides you with significantly more heat, as far less is lost up the chimney and instead is radiated into the room. This in turn means that you will burn far less, your logs will last much longer and the heat you get will be greater and more controllable. On top of this, traditional cast iron stoves are safer and don't spit as the fire is enclosed, yet at the same time they still allow a great view of the fire, radiating that lovely light. Finally traditional multifuel stoves look great; they will be a feature of your home and last for years.
