Top tips for storing wood at home

If you’ve purchased kiln dried wood, it’s always advisable to find somewhere indoors to store it, a garage or shed is fine, but by storing your kiln dried wood outside then it will begin to absorb the moisture from the air.

If you’ve got your own way of collecting firewood, you’ll need to make sure you store it for at least a year so that the wood has time to dry naturally. We’d always recommend checking your seasoned firewood for its moisture content using a moisture metre or similar, available from your local fireplace shop or online retail outlet.

If you are storing wood at home, we’ve got some handy tips to make sure you’re staking it correctly to make sure you don’t end up with mouldy or damp wood.

How to stack firewood at home:

- Keep your logs as dry as possible and do as much as you can to keep your firewood from getting wet or damp

- Never stack your logs on the ground. Firewood needs constant air circulation to help keep it seasoned. An old pallet makes an ideal base for this if you are making your own log store.

- Make sure your logs are under cover but open on one side. This is especially important if you plan on using a polythene cover on your log store to help keep the firewood dry, as the firewood needs to be able to breathe to avoid it sweating.

- Stack your wood correctly. When building the stack, start at the outer edge and work inwards. Keep the logs level and avoid them sloping in or out. If you are stacking wood in a freestanding position then corners should be laid at 90 degrees to the previous level, like the corner of a house.

From the 1st May 2021, wood sold in quantities under 2 cubic metres has to be sold with a moisture content of 20% or less. If the wood you buy has the 'Ready to Burn' label you know that this is suitable for you to use on your woodburning stove straight away, due to the strict procudures put into place by Woodsure Ltd who run the Ready to Burn Scheme under the new government legislation (The Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020).

Sleek and streamlined, space saving inset stoves from Eurostove are perfect for self-build projects

From self-build projects to new-build developments and home extensions, inset stoves are the perfect heating solution. Sleek, modern and fuss-free, their space-saving design is ideal for smaller rooms, compact living areas or for those who prefer the look of an inset design over a freestanding hearth and stove. As well as freeing up space and complementing a contemporary interior, inset stoves also come with the high heat output and an attractive window design that allows for a full view of the flicking flames inside. Eurostove has a range of modern and traditionally-styled inset stoves to suit any home and by planning for an inset stove at the start of a project, the result will combine warmth and comfort with an attractive focal point as the hub of the home.

Inset wood burning or multifuel stoves are built-in units that are installed into a chimney breast or wall, leaving only the front of the stove exposed to create maximum impact. Minimal and fuss-free, these stoves are not only space-efficient but will also perfectly complement contemporary interiors and are the perfect choice for self-build projects, new-build developments and home extensions. Much more efficient than an open fire, an inset stove has a high heat output combined with character, warmth, comfort and a clean finish that is low maintenance and easy to use. Eurostove has a wide selection of inset stoves to suit every project.

The IQ33 multifuel model from Nestor-Martin is a bold and striking four-sided stove that sits flush with the wall. It comes with exclusive Woodbox® combustion technology to produce a high-performance burn, which increases the fuel’s energy and adds a warm glow and inviting ambience to any room. It also features white, cast-iron protection plates inside that reflect heat back into the room, reducing any heat energy that may be otherwise lost up the chimney and the surrounding wall. With a 9kW heat output, it’s ideal for larger rooms and open-plan spaces and comes with remote control for easy operation.

Mendip Stoves wood-burning Christon 750 offers a panoramic view of the flames within, via its wide glass window. A-rated for energy efficiency, the 8.7kW stove features a large insulated chamber to hold logs up to 60cm in length while the steel box-within-a-box design creates good airflow for convection heat to be evenly distributed to the room. Smooth and modern, the stove is available with a three or four-sided frame, allowing the Christon 750 to be installed on a hearth or set up high in a flush wall setting. The purchase of this stove also contributes £10 to the Woodland Trust, helping to plant native trees in the UK and allowing for a sustainable choice.

The Westfire Uniq 32 inset wood burning stove is another great space-saving heating solution, which comes with an insulated fire chamber to reflect heat back into the room. A+ rated for energy efficiency, it comes with easy to use air controls for a complete, cleaner burn that maximises fuel’s energy. With 5.9kW of heat, it’s ideal for all room sizes and its large glass window allows for a full view of the fire inside. A choice of frames offers personalisation with a clean, crisp edge. In a metallic anthracite finish, the stove is suitable for all styles of interior and it also comes with a closed combustion adapter that allows external air to feed directly to the fire to improve its burn.

The Christon 750 and Uniq 32 stoves are both Defra Approved for use in Smoke Control Areas such as our cities and large towns. All three stoves are Ecodesign Ready, making it a great investment for the year to come. The European-wide initiative to lower emissions comes into effect for stoves in the UK in 2022. The PM emissions limit for Ecodesign is 55% lower than for Defra exempt stoves and EcoDesign Ready models can reduce particle emissions by 90% compared to open fire and 80% compared to an old stove. Upgrading your stove to an Ecodesign Ready model now gives peace of mind as well as helping to protect our planet.

“Inset stoves are a great way of saving space in self-build projects and new-build developments,” says Chris Baines, managing director of Eurostove. “As they are usually installed above the floor within the wall, they leave the floor area clear and also create a seamless, flush-fit effect, which suits contemporary living spaces beautifully.”

Don't neglect your stove this summer - Top Tips for stove servicing

Sometimes over the summer your stove can be left feeling unloved and lonely with everyone outside playing in the sunshine. To make sure your stove does not feel dejected and is ready for the autumn and winter months you should get your stove serviced by a registered engineer as well as having your chimney swept.

Most warranties are only valid if the stove has an annual service by a registered engineer. Think of it the same as having your boiler or car serviced.

Servicing your stove should include:

- Checking for any damage to the interior bricks, grates and rope seals.


- If there is damage to any of these parts they should be replaced, not replacing them will impede the efficiency and possibly cause damage to the appliance.


- Sweeping the chimney and checking for any soot build up.


- Removing internal bricks and grates so that a complete clean can be done.


- Checking your carbon monoxide alarm is working.


- Checking the glass for cracks and advising replacement if necessary.


- Replacing any rope seals around the door, glass, or ash pan if they look damaged or have hardened.


- Replacing any damaged or broken firebricks.


- Cleaning the exterior of the stove, possibly respraying to make the stove look like new, so it can continue to take pride of place in your room.

When stoves are not regularly inspected or serviced, this can lead to a number of problems that will only come to light when you next use your stove. Make sure you book your service before the season starts to avoid the waits.

Genuine spare parts are available from any of our retailers across the country or from us direct.

With a large oven area directly above the fire chamber, you can easily cook food during the burn cycle of the fire. We’ve cooked sausages, toasted sandwiches, and even slow-roasted chicken and beef in our display model. The fire itself gives out an impressive amount of heat for the size of the chamber and burns cleanly and efficiently to allow heat to distribute evenly around the oven and into your room.

Why choose a wood burning stove?

With woodburning stoves never being far from the headlines of the British media, the question is, why should you choose a wood burning stove today and what benefits are there over other traditional alternatives and fuel types.

Woodburning stoves of the 21st Century are markedly different from those available even 10 years ago. Today's stoves not only have the best in combustion technology, Ecodesign certification and smoke exempt optionality, they also come in all shapes and sizes to suit your home.

Are wood-burning stoves better than open fires?

The simple answer is yes. Woodburning stoves not only allow for much more heat to be emitted into the room and less lost up the chimney than open fires, but they are also substantially better for the environment. Where most Ecodesign stoves have an A or A+ energy rating, open fires are rated G if not lower on the energy rating system.

Ecodesign compliant wood stoves must have a minimum efficiency of 75% compared with the current CE requirement of 65%. The difference in the efficiency of Ecodesign ready stoves compared with older stoves and open fires can be clearly seen in the efficiency label chart shown below. (Stove Industry Alliance).

Not only are Ecodesign wood burning stoves more efficient in their emissions but also in their load rates. Significantly fewer logs are required in an Ecodesign Stove compared to an older stove or open fire, not only saving you money but also reducing the amount of Carbon released through the burn cycle.

How does woodburning compare to other forms of fuel?

Woodburning stoves are considered ‘carbon neutral’ due to the natural cycle of planting and harvesting trees making wood a sustainable fuel. CO2 is taken out of the atmosphere by growing trees at the same time as it is released by the combustion (burning) of the previous harvest. This form of renewable energy makes it much better for the environment than burning oil or gas as no new carbon is being created.

Many people use their woodburning stove alongside traditional central heating systems or to create a statement piece in a room. This can mean having a wood-burning stove can save you money on your heating during the early Autumn and Spring months when the temperature outside starts to drop but not to a point that it justifies using the central heating.

Modern woodburning stoves are designed to burn dry wood, with a moisture content of less than 20%. In fact, the sale of wet wood (with a moisture content of more than 20%) is now due to be phased out in the coming month. Making it easier to purchase the right wood for your woodburning stove.

Woodsure has launched the Ready to Burn logo to give consumers the confidence they need when purchasing firewood that has a moisture level of below 20%. This allows people to easily identify quality, dry wood fuel, which will not only benefit their woodburning stove but also the wider air quality.

Perfect for smaller spaces, Eurostove's compact Beltane Brue is economic and Ecodesign compliant

When you’re faced with the challenge of a small room, be it a living area, dining space or compact open-plan layout, having a freestanding stove may seem like a pipe dream. But with the Beltane Brue collection from Eurostove, you’ll get all the benefits of a traditional multifuel stove in a compact design, ideal for modern new-builds as well as cosy cottages and rural retreats.

Available as a classic freestanding model, Eurostove’s Beltane Brue collection comes in a choice of four designs – the Beltane Brue Ecodesign, Beltane Brue Logstore Ecodesign, Beltane Brue Convector Plus Ecodesign and the Beltane Brue Convector Plus Logstore Ecodesign – with a style to suit every home.

Each stove is A+ rated for energy efficiency with a heat output ranging from 3-5kW. Its clean, modern styling features a large viewing window to see the dancing flames within along with a beautiful Anthracite painted finish that complements all interiors. Solid, sturdy and manufactured using only the highest quality materials, this British design comes with easy to use air controls and a durable cast iron grate. Suitable for placement on a 12mm hearth, the Beltane Brue is a perfect choice for smaller spaces.

For those who love the look and earthy aroma of real wood, the logstore base versions of the Beltane Brue stove allow for quick and easy access to dry logs and you can easily store an evening’s worth below the stove itself, so no more having to pop out to the woodshed on a cold, wet and windy night.

The two Convector Plus designs come with convection side panels, lowering the distance to combustibles at the sides to 200mm. This is due to the relatively cooler exterior of the convection stove compared to the radiant heat of the non-convector designs, which are more suitable for installation within a chimney breast or fireplace.

Eurostove’s Beltane Brue collection is Defra Approved for use in Smoke Control Areas such as our cities and large towns as well as being Ecodesign Ready, making it a great investment for the future. The European-wide initiative to lower emissions comes into effect for stoves in the UK in 2022. The PM emissions limit for Ecodesign is 55% lower than for Defra exempt stoves and EcoDesign Ready models can reduce particle emissions by 90% compared to an open fire and 80% compared to an old stove. Upgrading your stove to an Ecodesign Ready model now gives peace of mind as well as helping to protect our planet.



“The Beltane Brue collection is a great option for smaller homes or compact rooms,” says Chris Baines, managing director of Eurostove. “It may be one of our smaller stoves but it still delivers on heat output and looks stunning with its clean lines and classic styling. Investing in an EcoDesign Ready model now is a wise idea, as it means you are all set when the new rules come into place next year. Here at Eurostove we have been designing and manufacturing EcoDesign Ready stoves for a few years now, helping homeowners get ready for this next stage of sustainable living.”

Do I need an SE Stove? What is Smoke Control?

Smoke control areas, or zones, have been around since the late 1950s, they were introduced to help deal with the growing pollution in cities and surrounding areas after the Industrial Revolution and the evolution of factories over the UK.

Many larger towns and cities are considered to be Smoke Control Areas, this means you must meet the smoke emission standards for these areas. To check whether you are in a smoke control area you can check with your local council.

What Stove can I buy?

Across our brands, we have a huge number of DEFRA approved, or SE (Smoke Exempt) models which are suitable to have installed in these areas, but there are restrictions on what fuels you can burn on your stove in these zones. Our helpful network of expert retailers can help you identify which stove is best for your home as well as making sure it also meets all necessary local authority regulations.

What can I burn?

If you live in one of the many Smoke Control Zones across the UK, then you are restricted to burning only authorised fuels, whether this is wood that meets the manufacturer's stipulation on dryness (normally moisture of less than 20%), or if your stove is a multi-fuel appliance then you can only burn authorised smokeless fuels. You can find a list of authorised smokeless fuels here on the DEFRA website.

Other Top Tips

Choosing a DEFRA or SE stove is the first step when deciding which stove to buy, there are other considerations to make when making your final decision.

- Check whether your stove is also Ecodesign – this is part of the new legislation coming into force in 2022 which is making sure only the cleanest burning stoves are available for purchase from January 2022 onwards – with tighter regulations to come, you can future-proof your purchase by buying an Ecodesign stove, or Eco2022 stove now.

- Make sure your installation is up to regulations by using a qualified HETAS installer

- Keep your stove looking its best with regular services, this is normally done when you have your chimney swept and by helping to keep your stove well-maintained you can keep it operating at optimum efficiency.

- Fuel – Making sure you are using the correct type of fuel for your stove is a huge part of being a stove owner – think of it like making sure your pet has the right food – you wouldn’t feed your dog with cat food, and it’s the same with stoves. By burning wet wood, house coal and other unapproved fuels or rubbish on your stove can not only damage the stove internally, but also you don’t get the same performance and efficiency levels from your stove. We always recommend following the manufacturer's advice when it comes to load weights and fuel types that can be used in your appliance. Any wood that is used should have a moisture level of less than 20%. You can look out of the Wood Sure or Burn Better logos on firewood to make sure you’re buying wood that’s suitable for woodburning stoves.

What flue is used when and why for wood-burning stoves?

When buying a stove it’s important to not only make sure you understand all of the jargon that gets thrown about when you speak to someone in a stove shop or look online at stoves, you also need to understand about the flue or chimney system that’s going to be used for your installation and why it’s being used.

We’ve created another helpful blog to help you get to grips with the terms that many installers and fitters use when it comes to your flue and chimney system. Remember to always use a flue thermometer to make sure that your stove is running at the best operating temperature!

Single Wall Flue

What is it?

Single Wall Flue is often referred to as vitreous enamel, single skin flue or connecting flue pipe or even starter pipe. The term ‘single wall’ refers to the fact that there is only one layer of steel with no insulation.
Single wall flue is generally made from steel and coated with enamel; this provides a smooth internal and external finish. Sometimes, however, it can be manufactured using stainless steel with no enamel coating. It is usually available in a matt black or gloss black finish but can be sprayed to match any stove with the correct high temperature paint.
When can I use it?

Single wall flue pipe is designed to connect the top of your appliance, be it woodburning, Multifuel or even gas, to your main flue system or chimney. Your main system could be a flexible liner down an existing chimney or it could be a twin wall flue system.

What building regulations say?

Building regulations state that you can only go up to 150mm away from the ceiling in single wall flue before moving to your main flue system. It is also not designed to be fitted through walls, ceilings or roofs, and has a larger distance to combustibles than a twin wall system. Single wall flue should be a minimum of three times the flue diameter to any combustible materials, whereas twin wall can go as close as 50-65mm depending on the system.

Twin Wall Flue

What is it?

Twin wall flue is also known as double skin flue, or a factory made chimney. Twin wall flue pipe is manufactured from stainless steel and is made up of two steel walls, kept separate by a layer of high grade insulation.
Twin wall is usually provided in a stainless steel finish, but is available from some suppliers with a powder coated finish in either black or ivory. A powder coated finish is used rather than spray paint as it is more durable, this finish is available due to the layer of insulation between the first and second flue walls, as the temperature on the outside is not as great as on a single skin piece.
The layer of insulation in twin wall flue keeps the flue gases warmer and allows the flue to perform correctly and efficiently, whilst also reducing the build up of condensates within the flue system.
When can I use it?

Twin wall flue systems are used with a stove when it is fitted into a property where there is no masonry chimney. It can run internally or externally and it achieves higher temperatures due to the layer of insulation.
You cannot use single wall flue pipe in place of twin wall flue pipe. Single wall flue pipe is not insulated and therefore loses a lot of heat. The layer of insulation in twin wall flue keeps the flue gases warmer, allowing the flue to perform correctly and efficiently, whilst also reducing the build up of condensates within the flue system.


Termination Points:

Where the chimney passes through a pitched roof of more than 0.6m from the ridge, the horizontal distance between the roof and the chimney termination should be not less than 2.3m, unless the termination is at least 0.6m above the ridge.
Where the discharge end of the chimney flue is within a horizontal distance of 2.3m from any adjoining structure or opening into building, the termination height must not be less than 1m above that structure or opening.

Flexible Liner

If twin wall is not an option for you and you already have a chimney in place. Lining it using a flexible liner made from double skin stainless steel is the easiest way of installing a stove. These liners are smooth on the inside and corrugated on the outside and must be installed the correct way up. A flue liner can be installed into a masonry chimney to produce a continuous and unbroken flue from the appliance to outlet. This prevents flue gasses escaping though disintegrating brickwork and provides the optimum flue diameter for the appliance.

Why choose an oil stove?

There’s nothing like coming home to the glow of a warming stove in your home.

When a solid fuel stove is not appropriate, or suitable for your home and you already have an oil boiler or access to a heating oil line then an oil stove can be a great alternative.

They offer all the benefits of a wood-burning stove but without any soot or ash.

Nestor Martin offers two small but mighty oil stoves, the Harmony 11 and the Stanford 21. These brilliant oil stoves are modern in every way but their appearance, looking from the outside like traditional wood burners.

As well as creating a classic focal point within the room, a freestanding stove will also provide powerful heat and take its place as the hub of the home. It’s never too early to consider installing an elegant cast iron design into your living room, dining area or open-plan kitchen space. As well as feeling the benefit for years to come, a freestanding stove can also add value to your home and attract buyers if you choose to sell up in the future.

There are many advantages to owning an oil-fired stove. Perfect for those who live in rural areas without access to mains gas, the S21 traditional design from Nestor Martin is not only easy to use but is also reliable, low-maintenance and inexpensive to run, using just 0.15 ltr of oil per hour at minimum. It comes with an electric starter but will continue to provide powerful heat output in the event of a power cut, as it does not require any electricity to operate and can also be started manually, too.

Each stove is easy to use with a simple igniter button and easy-access controls at the top for optimum room temperature and controllable flame.

At the heart of our oil stoves is a highly efficient burner that incorporates technology to optimize the mix of combustion air and oil; resulting in excellent combustion. The H11 oil stove is built from cast iron, which grants it a robust look and has a higher heat retention capacity than steel. Easy to operate, it has a standard, electric push-button ignition. All this means that you will reap the benefits of this stoves unmatched performance and efficiency for years to come.

The stove can be connected to a new or existing oil tank with a gravity-fed burner, which does not require a pump. The Nestor Martin vaporising burner pot burns so efficiently that carbon deposits are kept to a minimum. The operation of a simple de-coking tool on the inlet for the oil into the burner is all that is required during the heating season. Like all heating appliances, a yearly service by a competent engineer is required.

It must be installed by a qualified OFTEC installer and uses standard heating grade oil. Visit www.oftec.org for approved installers in your area.

Spring / Autumn Stove Syndrome

During the Spring and Autumn months temperatures can rise suddenly making it a lot warmer outside than inside. When this happens, it can sometimes lead to what we in the stove industry call Spring / Autumn Chimney Syndrome.

Spring / Autumn Syndrome is where the air in the chimney begins operating in reverse to its normal flow pattern. The most obvious sign of this only comes when lighting your stove during these seasons due to the changeable weather conditions.

Because of the warmer temperature outside, your house can feel colder than it is, and the desire to light your lovely woodburning stove to keep yourself warm and cosy – even though it’s mid-April or early September – gets too much to bear. You have put on your extra jumper and pair of cosy socks – but it is no use, only the heat from your fire will make your home feel as warm as the temperature outside.

Symptoms:

Not lighting:

Sometimes Spring / Autumn Syndrome can be seen by the stove itself not lighting how it would normally.

Smoke Spillage:

If sufficient air is coming down the chimney or flue in reverse, then the stove will begin to light but spill smoke through what are normally air inlets out into the room.

The stove can continue to do this for some time, where normally the heat produced in lighting your stove travels up the chimney to aid the draught when the chimney has a reverse airflow the heat from fire has no chance to travel up the flue, warm the chimney and operate normally.

Causes:

Most prevalent if you have an external flue, twin-wall system or block-built chimney, the dense cold air within the chimney can act as a plug in the flue.

Remember it is not the stoves job to push the air up the chimney, but the chimneys job to pull air through the stove.

How to prevent Spring / Autumn Syndrome:

The best way to combat this is a lighting method detailed below in an easy 10 step process which helps get heat into the chimney gradually so as the fire increases slowly the smoke will then be drawn up the flue system.

Inverted / Upside Down Lighting Method:

1 – Make sure the grate is not covered in ash or chunky remnants of your last fire. This is so the air can pass easily through the grate up into the bed of the fire.

Set the controls on your stove to the lighting position as detailed in the instruction manual.

2 – Place two small split logs (logs should always have a moisture level of less than 20%) across the fire bed making sure that you leave some of the holes in the grate uncovered.

3 – Create your normal pyre of kindling on these two split logs (as pictured) with firelighters interlaced within the pyre to allow air to pass easily through the kindling tower which enables a quick and clean lighting process.

4 – Light the firelighters and close the door on the stove. The fire will slowly increase in size and heat, warming the flue gradually without producing copious amounts of smoke. As the fire grows, it heats the chamber and flue, allowing the flue draught to start to establish removing any smoke that might have built up within the chamber during this step.

5 – Leave the stove alone and in about 5-10 minutes, once the fire has established, you can move the air controls from the lighting position and leaving the secondary air controls completely open.

6 – Again you can leave the stove to continue burning with the secondary air control fully open, and as the kindling falls between the logs below it then lights these slowly. Once these logs are burning well, then the air controls can be adjusted to the usual place for when you are using your stove. The stove will then continue to burn the logs at a controlled rate and output.

7 – You don’t have to rush to reload your stove as soon as the flames stop. The heat from your stove will continue while the logs are still burning. In doing this you are ensuring that all the volatile gases are burned from the wood that cause smoke, so that when you come to re-fuel the stove no smoke will escape into the room.

8 – When you are just left with glowing crunchy looking cubes of charcoal on the fire bed – This doesn’t always look the most appealing, but it is the best way to refuel your stove with minimum leakage and spillage while the door is open for reloading - you are ready to reload your stove.

9 – Set the air controls to fully open

Remember – ALWAYS wear a heat proof glove (normally supplied with the stove) when re-fuelling your stove.

10 – Open the door – only a crack – this allows the pressure to equalise between the stove chamber and your room. If you pull it straight open, you run the risk of the change in air pressure causing fine ash or smoke to be pulled into the room.

After about 5 seconds open the door fully and load the logs as per the manual for their load rates. Once these logs have lit and fire has begun establishing again you can return the air controls to their previous operating positions and regulate the burn

Why choose an electric stove?

If you’ve always wanted a wood-burning stove, but can’t have one at home due to installation issues or are worried about clearing an ash pan, then an electric fire could be the way forward for you.

Our range of Ilektro electric fires are ultra-modern and 100% efficient, meaning you don’t lose any of the residual heat up a chimney or flue, you get it all in your room.

With our range of inset electric fires you have the choice of how to install them and can put them anywhere in a room (as long as you’ve got a plug socket).

The main advantages of an electric fire are that they can have very low installation costs as they do not require a chimney system or liner to be fitted. They may require some building work to install the stove initially but after that, you’re ready to go. Electric fires also don’t produce any smoke so you are able to install them in Smoke Control Areas with ease.

Ilektro electric fires have a number of added features, such as the ability to change the flame colour, speed and the option to have the heater off so you can enjoy your fire in the summer as well.

The convincing flame effects add to the authenticity of your electric fire, by using the ribbon effect you get a realistic artificial flame effect for an impressive display.

The fires themselves are available in a number of sizes, so there’s one for every installation and home.

Nestor Martin M43 woodburning stove combines Eco credentials with modern design

These days we ask a lot of our household appliances and the same can be said for our heating, too. With open-plan living becoming increasingly popular, we need high heat output as well as good looks and something sustainable that ticks the eco-friendly box. Nestor Martin has the perfect solution with its new M43 wood burning stove, which combines all of this and more.

A new model for 2020, the freestanding Nestor Martin M43 wood burner is an Ecodesign Ready stove, which is A+ rated for energy efficiency and combines contemporary styling with a high quality, robust cast iron exterior. The powerful, high heat output 8kW stove has a large glass front for a full view of the flicking flames and radiant heat inside, sturdy cast iron back and optional remote control. The M43 also comes with patented Woodbox® combustion technology, an airwash system and an ashpan.

The Nestor Martin M43 wood burning stove also comes with an environmentally friendly catalytic converter. Producing a long, even heat output, catalytic combustion is designed to clean the smoke that leaves your chimney, reduce creosote and enable you to get more heat from each piece of wood. The catalyst passes the smoky exhaust through a coated ceramic honeycomb inside the stove where the smoke gases and particles ignite and burn. This means less dust as well as 80% lower CO2 emissions. Catalytic combustion is operated by a lever bypass damper for starting and reloading and to maintain your stove in peak condition, just ensure you never over-fill the stove or use an inappropriate fuel such as household waste or treated wood. Burn only natural, well-seasoned wood and clean the catalyst regularly with a vacuum or soft-bristled brush every six weeks for best results.

With sustainability high on its agenda, Nestor Martin’s M43 wood burner is also Ecodesign Ready. Designed to reduce PM (particle matter) emissions by burning wood more efficiently and completely, Ecodesign Ready stoves are future-proof and eco-friendly, meeting the emissions and minimum efficiency criteria for Ecodesign ahead of the implementation date of early 2022.

“The new M43 wood burner is just one of a full range of catalytic and Ecodesign Ready wood-burning stoves from Nestor Martin,” says Chris Baines, managing director of Eurostove, “Whether you want a modern look or something more traditional, there is a style to suit every space and every interior. As well as being eco-conscious, every stove is also highly efficient with a high heat output, guaranteed to keep you cosy all year round.”

Why buy Hergom? The Spanish brand taking the stove world by storm

While Hergom has over 50 years of experience in crafting stoves and honing their woodburning technologies, it’s no surprise that their woodburning stoves range is growing ever more popular here in the UK.

From design to manufacture, all processes take place in their offices and foundry in Santander Spain. Hergom takes pride in the quality of their cast iron products and believes that cast iron is the ideal material for wood-burning stoves. This is thanks to its durability, sturdiness, finishing possibilities and high heat transfer capabilities.

Durability

Given its extraordinary resistance to heat and rust and construction capabilities without weld points, cast iron is one of the highest quality materials to make components for a woodburning stove.

Quality Heat

Cast iron products emit a pleasant, uniform, radiant heat. They cool more slowly than steel-bodied stoves, allowing you to continue to enjoy some warmth from the fire after it has extinguished.

Finish

Cast iron allows for unique shapes and attractive details, allowing shapes and forming that cannot be created from the use of other materials. Some Hergom products are available in an enamel finish, for high adherence protection. The brightness of enamel remains intact over time, and the non-stick surface allows for easy cleaning.

High Heat Transfer Capabilities

Cast iron is also less likely to undergo, to the same level as steel, the expansion-contraction cycle caused by the heating-cooling of steel stoves. A cast-iron bodied stove will provide decades of operation.

Hundreds of thousands of homes worldwide have trusted Hergom products and are fully satisfied because at Hergóm they unite research and latest technologies to guarantee you a confident fire experience, with complete efficiency.

The best materials

As the main component of their products, cast-iron guarantees a high-quality finish, great resilience, and optimum heat transfer. All-steel models boast a double chamber structure to guarantee their durability over time.

Clean burn and high efficiency

Hergom’s advanced combustion systems assure a complete wood burn, giving you more heat with less wood, reducing your costs in fuel and maintenance while taking care of the environment

Outstanding fire view

The big glass surfaces remain clean for a long time thanks to the Airwash system, that drives an air current through the inner side of the glass, keeping it free of soot and giving you a spectacular view of the flickering flames

Easy combustion control

The fire is easily controlled thanks to primary and secondary air controls, which allow you to adjust the amount of air in the combustion process

Easy cleaning

Removable ash pans assure clean and convenient disposal of ashes.

Reliability

All Hergom products are EC certified to guarantee their efficient performance, safety and low emissions, but at Hergóm they work hard to pass the strictest international controls regarding efficiency, CO, particle emissions, etc.

For a full look at the current Hergom range, you can view their range on our website here.

What wood to burn on my woodburner?

Before deciding which type of wood to burn on your Woodburner, you have to remember that whatever wood you decide to burn to needs to be dried, fully seasoned and with a moisture level of less than 20%. Moisture levels can be easily checked with a moisture metre if buying from a local source, or large companies such as Certainly Wood guarantee that the moisture level of your delivered kiln-dried wood will be 20% or less.

Burning dry wood helps your stove run at its optimum efficiency, burning wet or unseasoned wood will also reduce the effectiveness of the stove’s air wash system thus causing staining and blackening of the glass.

Wet or unseasoned wood produces the following poor performance:

Fires that are simply very hard and very slow to start

Fires that are then difficult to keep going or to keep burning well

Smokey fires with fewer flames which are also lacklustre and of a dull or dirty orange colour

Increased dense grey / blue smoke from the chimney

Shorter burn times

Low heat output

Dirty glass and firebricks

Excessive and rapid creosote build-up in the flue system and chimney

Unpleasant smoky smells both inside and sometimes outside the house (When you burn good wood and know how to operate your wood-burning stove properly it's really hard to detect any wood smoke at all)


If you are still unsure about whether the wood you’re buying is dry enough, then check for the Woodsure sticker.

Woodsure, a non-profit organisation run by HETAS, is striving to raise the quality of wood fuel in the industry. As a company we recommend only using wood that is below 20% moisture for burning on any of our appliances. This new Woodsure certification scheme along with its logo shows wood fuel users the suppliers and products that they can trust and adhere to their guidelines.

Best Types of Firewood to Use

The best types of wood to burn on your fire, are mostly non-resinous hardwoods. The best types of these are:

Ash – Ash wood produces a steady flame in wood-burning stoves, with good heat. It is considered one of the best woods for burning.
Birch and Beech – Birch and Beech both make excellent firewood, they produce good heat and are staples in many seasoned wood bags.
Oak – Oak is an ideal wood to use on your woodburning stove, known for its long, slow burns. Oak is a dense hardwood, that is probably one of the all-around best firewood for a woodburning stove. While oak can take a little longer to become properly seasoned than other firewood’s, it is well worth the wait.
While these are our top four, there are many other types of firewood that are acceptable to burn on a woodburning stove such as:

Hawthorn
Cherry
Mulberry
Apple
Worst Types of Firewood to Use

Softwoods are some of the worst woods you can burn on your woodburning stove. Softwood tends to burn quickly, inefficiently and produce harmful chemicals. They also tend to contain large amounts of resin – even when seasoned. Resinous woods produce thick oils when burned that blacken glass and leave hard to remove deposits on the inside of your stove and chimney. We do not recommend the following types of firewood to be burnt on any of our woodburning stoves:

Pine
Poplar
Cedar
Eucalyptus

It is also worth noting that woodburning stoves are not the same as incinerators and that items such as general rubbish, sawn timber offcuts and treated wood should not be burnt in your appliance.

Eurostove is delighted to add luxurious Ilektro fires to its family of high performing brands

Now that the weather’s turned and we’re all tempted to turn the heating back on, it’s the perfect moment to consider your home’s heating needs and whether your current configuration is up to the job. In today’s modern homes, whether family new-builds or purpose-built apartments, efficient insulation comes as standard with barely the need for additional heating. But for many homeowners, the lure of a focal point fire is key to creating a cosy, comfortable environment that you long to come home to after a long day.

The solution is a stylish, eye-catching, highly efficient electric fire with high heat output, clean energy and easy installation. With this in mind, Eurostove is proud to announce that it is now the distributor for luxury electric firebrand ilektro, where thoughtful design meets state-of-the-art technology.

The ilektro range by Paul Agnew Designs is available in various sizes and configurations, with styles ranging from authentic gas and wood imitations to sculptural and abstract shapes to suit a more contemporary interior. All models are available as standard with the option to be single or double-sided, left or right-hand configured or a full bay design and with non-reflective glass, you can enjoy the view whichever configuration you select. Features include a single ribbon flame effect with no gaps, and innovative DuoFlame technology allows you to change the flame colour an impressive seven times. Added benefits include a variable speed option for the flame pattern for varying intensity to suit your mood as well as the whole ilektro range being eco-compliant with clean energy credentials.

What’s more, ilektro fires are not only highly desirable in their design but they also offer advanced technology with smart heat output. With ilektro, your fire is programmable to a specific room temperature for the ultimate ease of use and it can even be programmed to switch on at your preferred time via the remote control.

All ilektro designs are contemporary and minimal with a sleek frameless finish and low-reflection glass. One of our favourites is the two thousand landscape, the largest fireplace in the ilektro collection. A bold heating option, it features DuoFlame Multi Flame colour technology with seven settings, and an up to 2000W heating output, which is infinitely variable. The stove has a patented even-heat distribution, energy-saving LED Multi Flame, full-screen display and the use of the flame effect without heat for moments when you just want the ambience after dark. There is also a touchpad remote control for ease of use and a fully programmable timer. What’s more, it looks spectacular – a luxurious finish without the hassle and upheaval of installing alternative fuel choices.

"We are delighted to be a distributor for the ilektro fire brand,” says Chris Baines, Managing Director of Eurostove, “This collection of high-spec heating is designed to turn the simple electric fireplace into a stunning statement piece. Every model is also so simple and easy to install with no flue needed, just a standard electric plug. We think the clean inset design is the perfect complement to any interior, no matter what size or style of home you have."

Mendip Stoves launches its first ever Gas Stove with the remote controlled Ashcott design

With autumn/winter just around the corner, now is the perfect time to reassess your home’s heating and consider whether your current configuration is as cosy and comfortable as possible. There’s nothing quite like coming home to a feature stove in the living room, dining area or a large open-plan space. Not only does a stove create a cosy glow to warm up the whole family, but it also provides a focal point feature within any interior.

With this in mind, Mendip Stoves has launched its first-ever gas stove to complement all styles of décor and all budgets. The Ashcott convection gas model is simply styled with a classic look; it comes with remote control, extending the current Mendip range in order to provide the perfect heating source for all homeowners, whichever fuel they prefer and whichever fuel source suits their property.

The remote-controlled Ashcott heats a room quickly, cleanly and simply. It comes with dual burners, which emit a heat output of between 1kW and 6kW. This means that when using the smaller burner, even on a low 1kW setting, you still benefit from the cosy glow of a flickering flame within. With full electronic ignition, it can also be programmed with a timer switch, that regulates the room’s temperature, turning the stove on and off as needed.

Designed in their UK factory nestled deep in the Mendip Hills, the new Ashcott gas stove comes with a balanced flue so it can be used in locations where a solid flue cannot, such as smokeless zones, new-builds and terraced houses. As the flue can exit horizontally, this makes it much more flexible than a conventional flue, which needs to be directed through a chimney.

The Ashcott gas stove is part of the Woodland Trust offer from Mendip Stoves. For every stove sold, Mendip will donate three trees to the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading conservation charity.

Don't neglect your stove this summer - Top Tips for stove servicing

Sometimes over the summer, your stove can be left feeling unloved and lonely with everyone outside playing in the sunshine. To make sure your stove does not feel dejected and is ready for the autumn and winter months you should get your stove serviced by a registered engineer as well as having your chimney swept.

Most warranties are only valid if the stove has an annual service by a registered engineer. Think of it the same as having your boiler or car serviced.

Servicing your stove should include:

Checking for any damage to the interior bricks, grates and rope seals.

If there is damage to any of these parts they should be replaced, not replacing them will impede the efficiency and possibly cause damage to the appliance.

Sweeping the chimney and checking for any soot build-up.

Removing internal bricks and grates so that a complete clean can be done.

Checking your carbon monoxide alarm is working.

Checking the glass for cracks and advising replacement if necessary.

Replacing any rope seals around the door, glass, or ash pan if they look damaged or have hardened.

Replacing any damaged or broken firebricks.

Cleaning the exterior of the stove, possibly respraying to make the stove look like new, so it can continue to take pride of place in your room.

When stoves are not regularly inspected or serviced, this can lead to a number of problems that will only come to light when you next use your stove. Make sure you book your service before the season starts to avoid the wait.

Genuine spare parts are available from any of our retailers across the country or from us direct.

The ever-growing family of Ashcott Stoves from Mendip Stoves

From the standard Ashcott floor standing stove to the Ashcott Gas and Ashcott Wide, Mendip surely has something for everyone in this collection.

This means that when using the smaller burner, even on a low 1.5kW setting, you still benefit from the cosy glow of a flickering flame within. With full electronic ignition, it is also available with the option of operating the Ashcott from your smartphone or tablet via the app. So now you can turn your stove on as you travel home from work or after a cold day when the snow starts to fall and return to the cosiest of rooms. It can also be programmed with a timer switch, that regulates the room’s temperature, turning the stove on and off as needed. This version of the Ashcott stove also comes with a log store, to further enhance the traditional feel.

Finally, for a slightly larger stove, with a more visual impact, but slim-line design, look no further than the Ashcott Wide Catalyst design, which may be wide at 620mm but it is only 260mm deep with a heat output of 5kW, ideal for a statement piece which doesn’t over-shadow the room. It is fitted with an environmentally friendly catalyst to ensure the stove always emits fewer pollutants into the environment. This is also available as a logstore version.

Ashcott, like all the stoves available from Mendip, is also Ecodesign Ready. Ecodesign is a European-wide programme to lower emissions, which comes into force in the UK in 2022. Setting the standard for environmentally friendly stoves, the scheme is supported by DEFRA and overseen by HETAS, who will independently verify that the stoves pass the required criteria and tests.

This stove is also part of the Woodland Trust offer from Eurostove. For every stove sold, Mendip Stoves will donate £10 to the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading conservation charity. Chris Baines, Managing Director of Eurostove Ltd, said: “Eurostove and Mendip Stoves are delighted to be working with the Woodland Trust, helping the charity to plant hundreds of trees. We have a huge commitment to being a sustainable business, which includes encouraging our customers to use wood from sustainable sources to power our stoves. We see the Woodland Trust as being the perfect fit and are delighted that our support will see the planting and protection of trees across the UK.”

Mendip Stoves' guide to choosing a defra approved, Ecodesign Ready Stove

There’s nothing quite like the cosy appeal and instant warmth from a wood-burning stove and when shopping around for a new model, whether it’s your first foray into the world of wood burners or you are looking to upgrade an older model, there are some key considerations. As well as its heat output, size, installation issues and style, it’s also now more important than ever to ensure it’s a Defra Smoke Exempt Appliance if you live in a controlled area, and Ecodesign ready.

Wood burners have long been a sustainable option for heating the home, as they are low carbon and use renewable energy. Now, with recent changes in Government legislation, along with the introduction of the Clean Air Strategy in early 2019, it’s time to upgrade, update and opt for an eco-friendly model. Ecodesign legislation comes into force in the UK on 1st January 2022 and from then on, only stoves that comply with Ecodesign standards can be sold.

With this in mind, Mendip Stoves has a wide range of Ecodesign ready and “Defra approved” models that meet the emissions and minimum efficiency criteria, reducing particle matter emissions by burning wood more efficiently. Chris Baines, managing director of Mendip Stoves says,

“Whichever style and design you’re looking for, it’s advisable to choose an Ecodesign ready model now. The air quality will be improved as wood is burned more efficiently, which in turn gives the cleanest, cosiest environment in which to spend time in. We are proud to do our part in helping the planet and help consumers make the right choice for both their home and the environment.”
The stats speak for themselves. An Ecodesign ready wood burner produces up to 90 per cent fewer emissions than an open fire and up to 80 per cent less than a stove manufactured over 10 years ago. Homes within Smoke Control Areas also need a stove that is Defra approved. A Defra approved design isn’t necessarily Ecodesign ready and vice versa, so it’s important to choose a stove that complies with both.

As well as its eco-credentials, the stove must also ‘fit’ the room in terms of heat output. Chris Baines says,

“As a general rule, work out the cubic metre capacity of the room and divide by 14. However, for modern and well-insulated homes it is probably more accurate to divide by 20. One must also make sure that the “distance to combustibles” is observed, as individual stoves may have very different space requirements around the stove itself. Finally, do ensure that the stove is professionally installed by a HETAS registered engineer. Your home insurance may be invalid if not.”
Mendip Stoves has plenty of designs to choose from that are both Defra approved and Ecodesign ready. We’ve selected three to get you started:

Double-Sided Woodland

Ideal for open-plan living, this double-sided cast iron stove heats two rooms in one and is perfect for spacious new-builds, period properties and character cottages alike. With a large glass viewing window and stainless-steel handles, it provides a stunning centrepiece for contemporary and classic interiors and features doors on both sides, allowing the fire to be loaded from either side.

Ashcott Wide

Offering a spectacular view of the flickering flames inside, the Ashcott Wide wood burner is 620mm yet only 260mm deep with a heat output of 6kW, perfect for smaller spaces, well-insulated new-builds and apartments that don’t need much heating. It also comes with a traditional leg design as well as a logstore option.

Christon 750 Inset

Offering stacks of style appeal, Mendip Stoves’ Christon 750 inset fireplace creates a contemporary look with instant impact in any space. Its large insulated chamber can take logs up to 60cm long while a choice of a three or four-sided frame allows it to be installed on a hearth or set up high for a flush fit.

The Westfire Uniq 37 from Eurostove offers easy installation with its new double flue

Now that autumn/winter is almost upon us, it’s the perfect time to consider upgrading or introducing a wood-burning stove into your home. Suitable for city living, modern new-builds, period properties and country dwellings alike, a wood burner offers instant cosy comfort, heating living rooms, dining areas, open-plan kitchens and more thanks to its powerful heat output and mesmerising flames within.

For homeowners who prefer a sleek, contemporary look rather than a traditional stove design, the Westfire Uniq 37 from Eurostove combines style with substance. The cylindrical shape comes with side glass panels for a spectacular all-round view of the fire inside while the metallic anthracite finish is bang on-trend. What’s more, thanks to the new ‘double’ flue, installation is easier as the stove now only requires one air-access rather than two. Previously the Uniq 37 needed an air inlet through a wall or from beneath the floor, along with an outlet through the roof. Now, with the new double flue version, the stove no longer has to have that wall inlet, as the incoming air flows down the outside of the flue in a secondary pipe. This enables the stove to be installed anywhere with access to the roof, giving flexibility and versatility to your heating and design scheme. And because the inlet pipe is much less complicated, the stove performs better too. Additional advantages include a cooler outer edge of the flue for extra safety while the incoming air is warmed before it reaches the fire – perfect for when it’s really chilly outside.

Design-wise, choose from four leg styles - standard, two pedestal models that raise the stove for a clear view of the fire at 180° and a large option for added impact. There is also a wall-hung version.

Westfire’s Uniq 37 is also Ecodesign Ready. Ecodesign is a European-wide programme to lower emissions, which comes into force in the UK in 2022. Setting the standard for environmentally friendly stoves, the scheme is supported by DEFRA and overseen by HETAS, who will independently verify that the stoves pass the required criteria and tests.

Part of the Eurostove collection, Westfire specialises in modern wood-burning stoves made from quality materials using highly skilled craftsmanship.

The new Ashcott Wide woodburner offers a spectacular view of the flickering flames inside

Imagine coming home after a hard day at work or a refreshing walk at the weekend to the warmth and cosy glow of a wood-burning stove. Not only does a freestanding stove add heat and character to a room but it also brings a central focal point to living areas, dining spaces and open-plan living. If space is somewhat limited, don’t worry, as Mendip Stoves has the perfect solution with its new Ashcott Wide design, which may be wide at 620mm but it is only 260mm deep with a heat output of 6kW, ideal for smaller spaces, well-insulated new-builds and flats that don’t require too much heating.

The design is sturdy, robust and hardwearing with a 50mm to rear combustibles, high-quality contoured cast iron door, slim convection top plate and sculptured cast iron legs alongside a large glazed window, giving a full view of the dancing flames inside. The magnetic door catch is easy to use while the compact design is perfect for classic and contemporary interiors.

As the Ashcott Wide is an eco-friendly catalyst model, you’ll also benefit from a better all-round performance as well as helping the environment too. Suitable for built-up areas and smoke control zones, the stove is SIA and Defra approved and is 2022 Ecodesign Ready.

“Whatever style of stove you’re looking for, it makes sense to move to an Ecodesign Ready model now,” says Chris Baines, managing director of Mendip Stoves. “Air quality will be improved as wood is burned more efficiently, which in turn gives homeowners the cleanest, cosiest environment in which to spend time with family and friends. We are here to help consumers make the right choice for both their home and the environment.”

Mendip Stoves is proud to work in collaboration with the Woodland Trust. For every stove sold, Mendip will donate £10 to the UK’s leading conservation charity. “Eurostove and Mendip Stoves are delighted to be working with the Woodland Trust,” adds Chris, “helping the charity to plant hundreds of trees. We have a huge commitment to being a sustainable business, which includes encouraging customers to use wood from sustainable sources. We see the Woodland Trust as being the perfect fit and are delighted that our support will see the planting and protection of trees across the UK.” Over the last 40 years, the Woodland Trust has planted over 23 million native trees. The £10 from every stove sold is enough to plant three native trees.

Mendip's Double-Sided Woodland stove heats two rooms in one, perfect for open-plan living

With open-plan living becoming the norm for many homes, whether it’s a spacious new-build, a period property or a character cottage, selecting the perfect stove to heat more than one area can present a challenge. Now Mendip Stoves has the solution with the launch of its new Double-Sided Woodland design. As well as offering all the benefits of the standard Woodland stove – large glass viewing window, stainless steel handles – this new, deeper model will provide the perfect centrepiece for an open-plan living area and will complement both classic and contemporary interior design.

The Woodland Double-Sided stove does not require any venting as it is fitted with a direct external air connection and is DEFRA approved so it can be used in built-up areas and to burn wood in a smoke control zone. Cast iron doors on both sides of the stove can be opened, which enables the fire to be loaded from either side for ease and convenience, whichever room or area you are in at the time. The Woodland Double Sided stove is also the first in Mendip’s collection to utilise a catalyser to keep it burning efficiently, which in turn means that it is Ecodesign Ready. Ecodesign is the European-wide programme to lower emissions, which is due to come into force for stoves in the UK in 2022. Ecodesign Ready stoves will meet the Ecodesign requirements, making the Woodland Double-Sided a good investment.

Added features include integrated clean burn technology and an air wash system that keeps both glass windows clean, allowing for an impressive view of the burning log fire inside from every angle. This freestanding stove is rated A for energy efficiency and has a powerful 8kW heat output with a 200mm distance to combustibles.

The Woodland Double Sided stove is part of the Woodland Trust offer from Eurostove. For every stove sold, Mendip will contribute £10 to the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading conservation charity.

New for 2019 the Woodland range from Mendip Stoves just got larger

Ready for the 2019-2020 heating season the Woodland range has expanded to include the new big brother of the Woodland stove the Woodland Large. This clean-burning stove features a large firebox which gives the stove an impressive 7.5kW output, while still being efficient enough to be classified as Ecodesign Ready, this is a stove that already meets the eco-friendly emissions and efficiency requirements ready for the Clean Air Strategy which comes into effect in 2022.

With everything that you loved from the original Woodland, the Woodland Large has it all: large glass for an immersive fire view; clean burning with an air wash to keep your stove glass clean and optional direct air making this stove suitable for new builds and traditional cottages alike.

Mendip Stoves working for the environment

Mendip Stoves have announced that with the recent refurbishment of their factory, and a large investment in a new spray plant, they will now be able to use water-based paints for all their stove products.

This has a great ecological benefit, not only for the wider environment but also for all employees. These low VOC paints emit no smell or fumes, and there is also an advantage for the end-consumer, with no fumes being emitted when the fire is used for the very first time. In oil-based paints, this can be an unpleasant side effect whilst curing the fire. As well as this, in the manufacturing process, no thinners or oil-based fluid are needed.

Naturally, there is no additional charge for these improvements, as Mendip are committed to making the best choices for the environment that they can, which is why they are likewise proud to announce that they have recently achieved ISO 9001 accreditation. Mendip Stoves is also proud to work in collaboration with the Woodland Trust. For every stove sold, Mendip will donate £10 to the UK’s leading conservation charity, enough to plant three native trees.

“Mendip Stoves are delighted to be working with the Woodland Trust, helping the charity to plant hundreds of trees,” says MD Chris Baines. “We have a huge commitment to being a sustainable business, which includes encouraging customers to use wood from sustainable sources. We see the Woodland Trust as being the perfect fit and are delighted that our support will see the planting and protection of trees across the UK.”

Contemporary styled Westfire Uniq 18

For consumers, it’s often a choice between traditional or ultra-modern wood burners. When you want a bit of both, Eurostove has the answer with its statement Westfire Uniq 18 design, which blends the two perfectly.

Its clean lines and strong angular shape will bring a contemporary feel while its large glass viewing window, black painted finish and log store all echo the more traditional look.

With a 5kW heat output, this smart freestanding stove is suitable for a glass floor and is also available with a logstore door for a small additional cost.

The air wash system means cleaner glass for a better view of the flickering flames inside (with less cleaning) while the free-standing design allows you to install the stove either within a fireplace or on its own within the room.

The steel constructed Westfire Uniq 18 is also capable of burning with external air via a connection pipe and comes with full convection sides and top plate for better heat distribution and lower external temperatures.

As part of the Eurostove collection, Westfire specialises in modern woodburning stoves made from quality materials using highly skilled craftsmanship.

Mendip Stoves looks to the future with a low stylish collection of Ecodesign Ready, low emission stoves

There has been a lot of talk in the media recently about emissions, either from diesel or woodburning stoves, and also open fires. So now it’s time to make sure your new stove is Ecodesign Ready. Designed to reduce PM (particle matter) emissions by burning wood more efficiently and completely, Mendip’s Ecodesign Ready models are future-proof and eco-friendly, already meeting the emissions and efficiency criteria for Ecodesign which comes into effect in 2022.

An open fire burns in a ratio of approximately 80:20. That is 80% of the heat is lost up the chimney, with only 20% of the heat being retained into the room, a huge amount of wasted heat. But it is more than that, along with the heat going up the chimney, there are high levels of emissions and particulates, and it is these that are concerning the government, especially in high-density living area, our towns and cities.

“Our stoves have all been tested by an independent test laboratory and will emit approximately 80% fewer particles than a stove manufactured 20 years ago, and approximately 90% fewer than an open fire. That not only helps save the environment but also helps your pocket!” Explains the MD of Mendip Stoves, Chris Baines.

“Once you have decided on the best eco-friendly stove, the next consideration is what wood to buy. The number one no-no is wet wood collected from your garden! The best wood to burn is kiln-dried wood. There is a standard – set by HETAS, called Woodsure – and this will certify that the wood has a less than 20% moisture content. Some kiln driers use waste wood for the drying process, instead of oil, which further completes the carbon-neutral circle. And if you ensure that the wood is sourced in the UK, and dried here, it will help reduce transportation implications on the environment. “The added advantage of using very low moisture content wood is that it burns much more efficiently, so less wood will be used, which will actually have a positive effect on the cost of running the stove.”
When looking for a new or replacement stove, there are plenty of practical and aesthetic elements to consider - the heat output, the ease of installation and the overall design.

“Whatever style of stove you’re looking for, it makes sense to move to an Ecodesign Ready model now,” says Chris. “Air quality will be improved as wood is burned more efficiently, which in turn gives homeowners the cleanest, cosiest environment in which to spend time with family and friends. We are proud to do our part in helping consumers reduce emissions whilst burning a carbon-neutral fuel.

Choose from these contemporary and classic Mendip designs…

Mendip Stoves is also proud to work in collaboration with the Woodland Trust. For every stove sold, Mendip will donate £10 to the UK’s leading conservation charity, enough to plant three native trees. “Eurostove and Mendip Stoves are delighted to be working with the Woodland Trust,” adds Chris, “helping the charity to plant hundreds of trees. We have a huge commitment to being a sustainable business, which includes encouraging customers to use wood from sustainable sources. We see the Woodland Trust as being the perfect fit and are delighted that our support will see the planting and protection of trees across the UK.”

Portuguese brand Fogo Montanha release award winning stove to the UK market

Always at the edge of innovation and new trends, Portuguese brand Fogo Montanha offers two new wood-burning stoves using an innovative material. Cork. The Natura is a winner of the Red Dot Design Award 2017 due to the impressive integration of this natural touch into a modern industrial product.

Judges were particularly impressed with its simple yet sleek construction, with the main body of this high-performance wood stove manufactured out of steel, the cork cover sections are installed and fixed to the structure. These cork sections are separated from the steel body to make sure the cork doesn’t darken or discolour over time. Utilising a cork outer casing gives a truly unique look, combining aesthetics and functionality.

Being made with modular cork sections, it resembles old cast iron radiators, but with the use of this material, which is naturally fire retardant and heat resistant, it provides a lasting sensation of the warmth of the fire.

The two original models, with cork cover, available in natural or darkened colour are impressive and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The Natura is now also available in a cream painted finish and a black painted finish, as well as with a stone-clad cover.

This new range is characterized by perfect combustion, external air connection, high efficiency and low emissions. It’s a truly unique visual effect.

Hergom launches new brochure packed with Ecodesign ready and DEFRA approved stoves

Part of the Eurostove family, Hergom is one of Europe’s largest and most established manufacturers of cast iron stoves and cookers. Made in its own state-of-the-art foundry in Santander, northern Spain, they use only the finest materials to produce durable, efficient, thermally effective heating solutions.

Compact and classic, the Ashcott Stove now comes in Ivory, Logstore and Pedestal Designs

With autumn/winter fast approaching, now is the perfect time to consider your home’s heating needs. A wood-burning stove is an ideal accompaniment to traditional radiators or underfloor heating. Not only does it give living rooms and open-plan spaces a cosy glow and instant heat, but it also provides a focal point and, with classic and contemporary designs to choose from, there’s something to suit every interior. With the Ashcott model from Mendip Stoves being one of its most popular designs, the new launch of the Ashcott Ivory, Ashcott Logstore and Ashcott Pedestal are sure to please.

Quality is key to the Ashcott Ivory stove design with its sturdy cast iron door and steel body. A large ceramic glass window offers an impressive view of the flickering flames inside while the convection top plate and cast iron legs enhance the traditional feel. You’ll get a clean, efficient burn thanks to the milled stainless steel air control lever while a magnetic door mechanism enables easy closing. Compact enough for smaller spaces, it still delivers a powerful heat output with 4.7kW as well as an A+ energy rating.

For those who like to keep their logs within easy reach, especially during the cold, rainy winter season, the Ashcott Logstore comes with all the benefits and features of the Ashcott Ivory but with the added bonus of a handy logstore beneath the stove. And for those who favour a more modern, contemporary look, the Ashcott Pedestal comes with a pedestal rather than legs and can be used as a standalone feature for rooms without a traditional fireplace.

Nestor Martin's new TQH15 Gas Stove is powerful, efficient and so easy to use

The perfect choice for homeowners who want the warm glow of a standalone stove but without the hassle and potential mess of a wood burner, Nestor Martin’s new TQH15 gas design is sleek and chic and ideal for classic or contemporary interiors. Its tall, slimline style is elegant and timeless with a large viewing window and realistic flames flickering within. As well as creating an eye-catching focal point in the heart of the home, the TQH15 is also easy to operate with minimal maintenance required.

Offering all the benefits of a traditional log fire, the Nestor Martin TQH15 comes with a state-of-the-art gas burner for high fuel efficiency and all the convenience of consistent heat, whenever you need it. All Nestor Martin stoves are designed to efficiently burn natural gas and can also be adapted to propane where natural gas is not available, ideal for rural properties. What’s more, you can be assured that all its stoves are tested to meet the highest standards of performance, safety and emissions for both gas types.

When it comes to installation, the TQH15 is as easy to install as it is to operate thanks to its balanced flue, which can fit the top or rear of the stove. This means it can be fitted into a variety of locations around the home, without limiting you to just one spot. The stove is completely sealed from the room into which it is installed, preventing draughts and increasing heating efficiency. It’s a great option for built-up areas and single-storey homes, as well as new builds, period properties and out-of-towners and the flue, can accommodate a number of bends as well as having just a horizontal discharge, which all adds to its versatility.

Gas is over 85% efficient and benefits from a large flame with consistently clean burning. Turn it on at the flick of a switch and relax in the cosy, comforting flow of your new TQH15 gas stove, which also comes with programmable temperature control and on/off operation.

Nestor-Martin is one of the oldest stove manufacturers still trading today. Established in 1854, its stoves are designed to efficiently burn natural gas and can be adapted to burn propane. They are also tested to meet the highest standards of performance, safety and emissions for both gas types.


“We are so proud of our new TQH15 gas stove,” says Chris Baines, managing director of Eurostove. “It’s the perfect combination with the classic look of a wood burner and the ease and cleanliness of a gas fire and it can be installed almost anywhere to suit your needs and lifestyle.”

Mendip Stoves launches new Fireplace brochure packed with stylish designs and inspirational ideas

European stove specialists Eurostove have unveiled their latest brochure from Mendip Stoves - a stylish catalogue/lookbook dedicated to the brand’s hugely popular fireplace portfolio. With an eye-catching combination of in-situ room shots as well as close-up cameo images, the brochure superbly demonstrates the wide range available, with something to suit every scheme as well as fire surrounds to complement gas fires and solid fuel models.

The Fireplace Collection 2018 is carefully crafted from high-quality natural stone. Consumers, designers, builders and architects can choose from either Portuguese Limestone - a matt finish ideal for modern interiors with the look of slate without the high maintenance to match; or a composite stone which comes in Ivory Pearl or Perla White. Perfect for contemporary and classic settings, it’s hardwearing and consistent in colour as well as being easy to clean.

“We hope our customers enjoy our new fireplace brochure as much as we enjoyed putting it together,” says Chris Baines, managing director of Eurostove. “It’s full of helpful advice on how to choose the best fireplace to suit your needs as well as providing detailed information on the various materials we offer and how to care for them once they are installed.”

Another highlight includes a new selection of hearths in polished black or honed black granite. The filled designs are ideal for solid fuel stoves, as the spaces allow for heat expansion, while flat hearths are suitable for gas stoves or set within a traditional fireplace.

Mendip's best-selling Woodland stove is the perfect fit for renovation projects

As more and more new houses are being built, in both city and countryside alike, and with the demand for home renovations more popular than ever, here in the UK we need stove solutions that combine efficiency and high heat output with easy installation and hassle-free maintenance. The Woodland multi-fuel model from Mendip Stoves is not only designed here in the UK but it’s also the company’s best-seller and that’s largely thanks to the fact that it can be installed in just one day…

With Mendip’s best-selling Woodland multi-fuel stove, simply lay down a hearth, make sure the chimney is insulated then fit. Houses in the past have had to face the challenge of opening up the fireplace, taking the plasterboard away then fireproofing it – all of which is timely and expensive – yet because the Woodland only has a 10cm distance to combustibles, unlike other brands, it’s ideal for timber-framed homes and renovation projects.

Features of this clean-lined design include a large viewing window, 4.5kW heat output and the added benefit of 10cm to combustibles on the sides and rear, which allows the Woodland to be placed closer to combustible walls and is ideal for modern timber-framed buildings. It can be installed in large or smaller spaces with a log-store model also available

The Woodland stove is part of the Woodland Trust offer from Eurostove. For every stove sold, Mendip will donate three trees to the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading conservation charity.

Clean lined and modern, Mendip's Christon 750 inset stove is perfect for new-build projects

Whether you’re retrofitting into an existing scheme or planning a room renovation, extension or whole house build, adding a powerful yet efficient stove is key to creating a focal point and adding that all-important heat source ready for the autumn/winter months ahead.

The Christon 750 inset stove from Mendip is ideal for modern living with its full glass door design and sleek, contemporary look. The generously sized insulating chamber is big enough for 60cm logs while the steel construction of the box within a box design provides excellent airflow, enabling convection heat to be distributed evenly and effectively within the room.

“Combining innovation with aesthetics, the Christon 750 inset stove delivers on all levels,” says Chris Baines, Managing Director of Mendip Stoves. “There’s also the choice of a three or four-sided frame for a hearth or flush-fit wall installation – the ultimate in flexibility for projects of all styles and sizes.”

When considering an inset stove, the key is to plan ahead at the build stage, as this makes the whole process much simpler and straightforward.

For instance, when encasing the stove within a wall, it will be advantageous to provide additional convection around the appliance. This can be achieved via venting pipes from the top of the stove, a fan (which the Christon 750 has as an additional option) or low to high-level vents. Or even a mixture of these three. The venting pipes can either be vented into the room or into an adjoining area, with around 40% of the heat being diverted into this second space. This makes the Christon 750 inset stove perfect for rooms of all sizes, as the optional fan drives air around the case that encloses the stove then out into the room, heating the space more efficiently.

“Bear in mind that you will need an air supply,” adds Chris, “which could be beneath the floor if you plan early enough. Remember to plan the flue location and exit point and consider sharing the heat with another room.”

Rated A for energy efficiency, this woodburning stove has a heat output of 8.7kW and is 78.4% efficient. With a two-point locking door system for added stability and peace of mind, it’s priced from £1,370.

What’s more, the UK designed Christon is also Ecodesign Ready, in line with the new European-wide programme to lower emissions and improve air quality, which comes into effect by 2022. And for every stove purchased, £10 will be donated to the Woodland Trust, helping to plant native trees in the UK.

Hergom Laredo - Woodburning Stove and Oven in One!

The Hergom Laredo is definitely the best of both worlds by combining a fantastic wood-burning stove with an oven above it to make a fascinating addition to any home. The Laredo has a large capacity oven made from durable 2mm thick stainless steel.

The whole oven section is completely removable for easy cleaning and maintenance. This coupled with a double-wall construction for convective hot air circulation and oven heating means that the oven heats things evenly without the need for an added fan.

Within the oven itself there are 2 grill positions to allow you to make the most out of this spacious oven, but also there are 2 positions within the firebox itself. These additional positions within the firebox mean you can, once the fire has reduced to just embers, cook foods like pizzas with ease within the firebox itself.

This impressive wood burner has simplistic but effective air controls on the front of the stove to regulate both the primary and secondary air intake, this makes the lighting and running of the Laredo very easy.

With outstanding combustion values, the stove has over 80% efficiency and 0.09% CO emissions classing it as an A+ rated appliance.

The Laredo is available in two models, one for freestanding installations and one for corner installations (Laredo R).

It can be installed in built-up areas, single storey extensions and many areas of the home that are unsuitable for other fuel fires and stoves. This makes the S25 and its S-Series models a fully flexible fire solution for all the family’s needs.

The TQH13 Stove by Nestor Martin is the perfect blend of performance, quality and visual appeal

Whatever the weather, there’s nothing quite like the warmth and character of a wood-burning stove. Cosy and warm in winter and a perfect centrepiece to the living room, dining area or open-plan kitchen living space in summer, a stove is a great investment for any interior.

Part of the new Premium Line from Nestor Martin, the multi-fuel TQH13 stove has a rotating base, which swivels through 360°, allowing you to direct the heat where it’s needed most, and enjoy the comfort and warmth of the fire anywhere in the room. Added features include a side-loading door, for ease of re-loading. It’s available with a rotating bench stand, low-rise stand or log-store stand to suit your needs. This is just part of the personal touch that a Nestor Martin stove can offer – with stylish, practical options and accessories that fit in with your lifestyle. There’s also an optional Universal rotation kit making it suitable for any other compatible stand.

With quality at its core, the TQH13 also features a unique white-coated cast iron lining inside, for a sophisticated finish that creates a light, bright interior that will remain white during combustion; a blank canvas to offset and enhance the visual effect of the fire.

The range also benefits from Nestor Martin’s Woodbox® Combustion Technology for a safe, clean burn and up to 10 hours burn time when fully loaded.

The optional remote control will set the fire to your desired temperature by self-regulating and controlling the combustion rate. The stove itself comes with a steel internal body lined with the coated white cast iron, which is not only extremely robust but is also visually striking too. The perfect addition to any modern or traditional home, the TQH13 is the ideal stove for use all year round. High in efficiency yet low in emissions, it combines precise control with easy ignition, airtight heating and instant heat wherever, and whenever, you need it.

Wood-Burning Stoves - Eurostove's Chris Baines answers some questions from consumers

Buying a stove is much more than choosing between a contemporary or a traditional stove. Chris Baines, Eurostove MD helps to choose the right stove.

What model of stove should be installed with regard to heat output?
Output is an important factor in choosing a stove, it’s just as important not to overheat the room as to underheat it. As a rule of thumb, work out the cubic metre capacity of the room and divide by 14. However, for modern and well-insulated homes, it is probably more accurate to divide by 20. It is important to have a site survey conducted by a registered professional (Hetas or equivalent) to survey the proposed installation.

Is there a stove that produces long-lasting heat so I don’t have to keep re-filling it?
Yes indeed, the Somerton II from Eurostove has a heat storage block which means the stove will keep giving out heat for up to eight hours after the last logs are loaded.

Does it really matter what wood I burn?
It makes a huge difference. Kiln-dried wood (less than 20 per cent moisture) is the best source of wood. A 1Kg log of new wood is 50-60 per cent water, compared to dried wood, which may be 20 per cent water, but kiln-dried wood is around 15 per cent. The higher the moisture content, the lower the combustion temperature, which leads to more emissions being produced.

Should I replace my old stove?
Older stoves are up to 10 times more polluting than modern ones, and cost more to run. There are new standards coming into effect in 2022, which will require manufacturers to ensure that their stoves emit substantially fewer emissions. The Westfire 37 from Eurostove already meets those Ecodesign standards, as well as many other stoves from Eurostove. A full list of Ecodesign stoves can be found on the SIA website

What’s the difference between primary, secondary and tertiary Air?
Modern stoves consist of up to three air intakes, primary, secondary and tertiary. The primary intake (at the bottom) is used ONLY to get the fire going, otherwise, it drives too much air through the stove and the temperature in the flue increases, which means heat is being lost. Unfortunately, this leads to the vivid flame with which many consumers associate a ‘good’ fire, but it is very inefficient and not clean burning. In fact, the chamber temperature will actually decrease as the flow of air is too fast.

The secondary air intake, which comes in at the top, is the main air source, for use once the fire is properly alight. If the primary air is still being used now, it will impede the flow of secondary air, meaning particles that would normally be burnt off will blow up the chimney, increasing pollution.

Tertiary air intake at the back is pre-warmed air injected into the combustion chamber at force to re-combust gas from the first combustion phase, giving the cleanest, most efficient, burn possible. It adds more oxygen into the chamber to aid the secondary combustion.

What is a convection stove?
Convection means that the stove has the equivalent to an inner and outer body, and between these bodies, the air is heated and then travels around the room to heat a room more effectively. See the picture below for more information.

What if I live in a smokeless zone?
If your stove is labelled SE or Smoke Exempt this means that it has been tested and is DEFRA approved. This approval allows you to burn wood in a smokeless area, these stoves are also fit to burn approved smokeless fuels, unless otherwise specified.

Elegant and easy to care for, the Oil-Fired S21 stove from Nestor Martin is ideal for rural areas

There’s nothing quite like coming home to the warm glow of a Nestor Martin stove.

As well as creating a classic focal point within the room, a freestanding stove will also provide powerful heat and take its place as the hub of the home. With winter less than six months away, now’s the time to consider installing an elegant cast iron design into your living room, dining area or open-plan kitchen space. As well as feeling the benefit for years to come, a freestanding stove can also add value to your home and attract buyers if you choose to sell up in the future.

There are many advantages to owning an oil-fired stove. Perfect for those who live in rural areas without access to mains gas, the S21 traditional design from Nestor Martin is not only easy to use but it is also reliable, low-maintenance and inexpensive to run, using just 0.15 ltr of oil per hour at minimum. It comes with an electric starter but will continue to provide powerful heat output in the event of a power cut, as it doesn’t require any electricity to operate and can also be started manually, too.

With three heat outputs to choose from – 6kW, 8kW and 10kW – each stove is easy to use with a simple igniter button and easy-access controls at the top for optimum room temperature and controllable flame. Its highly efficient vaporising burner mixes preheated combustion air with the oil for excellent combustion with a high and consistent efficiency. All Nestor Martin stoves come equipped with this stainless steel burner for clean combustion every time the stove is used. The stove can be connected to a new or existing oil tank with a gravity-fed burner, which doesn’t require a pump. It must be installed by a qualified OFTEC installer and uses standard heating grade oil. Visit www.oftec.org for approved installers in your area.

Combining classic and contemporary style the Ashcott from Mendip Stoves suits all interiors

Nothing gives a warm welcome like the glow from a wood burning stove. As well as providing a central source of heat during the winter months, a standalone stove will also create a classic focal point for the living area, dining room or open-plan scheme.

Ashcott is the latest model from Mendip Stoves. It has an innovative magnetic door for easy closing and offers the perfect blend between classic and contemporary styling with its large viewing window, elegant legs and fuss-free finish with stainless steel handle. Providing a 4.7kW heat output, the Ashcott has a direct outside air connector for maximum efficiency.

The Ashcott stove needs only 150mm to combustibles at the rear of the stove, enabling you to have it installed 150mm away from a timber feature without fear of a fire. This also has the added benefit that all the heat generated moves forward into the room, which is where it’s needed most.

Ashcott is also Ecodesign Ready. Ecodesign is a European-wide programme to lower emissions, which comes into force in the UK in 2022. Setting the standard for environmentally friendly stoves, the scheme is supported by DEFRA and overseen by HETAS, who will independently verify that the stoves pass the required criteria and tests.

This stove is also part of the Woodland Trust offer from Eurostove. For every stove sold, Mendip Stoves will donate £10 to the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading conservation charity. Chris Baines, Managing Director of Eurostove Ltd, said:

“Eurostove and Mendip Stoves are delighted to be working with the Woodland Trust, helping the charity to plant hundreds of trees. We have a huge commitment to being a sustainable business, which includes encouraging our customers to use wood from sustainable sources to power our stoves. We see the Woodland Trust as being the perfect fit and are delighted that our support will see the planting and protection of trees across the UK.”

Sleek and chic, the Christon 550 and 750 stoves from Mendip are a perfect fit for modern homes

As winter fast approaches, now is the time to consider all your home’s heating needs.

To help you create a warm, welcoming home this winter, the contemporary-style Christon stove from Mendip is available as a freestanding design, inset fire or logstore stove to suit every setting. The freestanding model looks especially striking set atop a chunky plinth platform while the logstore version is a great little space-saver with plenty of open-fronted storage beneath for seasoned logs. For a flush finish to create a seamless look, the inset design offers the beauty of built-in.

The Christon 550 is a square stove with 4.8kW heat output and your choice of a three or four-sided frame. The inset model can be installed at ground level on a hearth or set higher into the wall for a contemporary finish. It comes with a generously sized viewing window and airwash system to keep the glass clean. The closed combustion, with 100mm to combustibles, means it can be installed in tight spaces such as a cosy inglenook fireplace. So it’s as practical as it is good looking.

The Christon 750, also part of the collection, has a modern letterbox shape with a full-sized rectangular viewing window, attractive handle and also comes in the same three formats with an output of 8.7kW.

What’s more, the UK designed Christon is also Ecodesign Ready, in line with the new European-wide programme to lower emissions and improve air quality, which comes into effect by 2022.

This stove is also part of the Woodland Trust offer from Eurostove. For every stove sold, Mendip Stoves will donate £10 to the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading conservation charity, which is enough to plant three native trees.

Maximise space in any scheme with Mendip’s innovative “10cm clearance to combustible” gap



In today’s modern homes, space is everything. Not only has the architect and builder taken care to maximise every inch with the right materials, layout and design, but homeowners will also use every trick in the book to create a spacious, airy feeling in the tiniest of spaces. A Mendip stove is the ultimate focal point feature, as not only is it cosy and full of character but it also only needs a 10cm minimum gap between it and any combustible materials.

Every stove on the market has its own guideline, as the stove and flue pipe become extremely hot when in use. It’s for these safety reasons that building regulations are in place, to protect both people and their property. Many stoves can require up to 50cm distance between the stove and any combustible materials but Mendip is different, making it more flexible and space saving.

Efficient and eco-friendly, the Hergom Heritage stove from Eurostove has style and substance



When it comes to choosing a new wood burning stove, there are many elements to consider, from performance and efficiency to quality, design and materials.

With the new Hergom Heritage stove, the emphasis is on creating a unique exterior finish with all the features you’d expect from a leading brand.

This cast iron stove is clad in soapstone, which has both form and function. Due to the high efficiency and heat retaining properties of soapstone, the Heritage provides a sustained heat output, which is longer and smoother than traditional stoves with fewer peaks and troughs. In fact, it will give out a good eight hours of continuous burning when fully loaded and will continue to release heat up to four hours after the fire burns out.

As a natural product, soapstone is environmentally friendly as well as having excellent thermal properties. Teamed with the cast iron frame, it offers a traditional look packed with modern technology. The Hergom Heritage comes with an advanced dual combustion system and AirWash glass self cleaning technology.

Along with the front door, it also offers the convenience of side loading and has a ceramic deflector for enhanced performance. You can also choose from matt black or a blue majolica enamel finish.

Added benefits include a top or rear flue (the latter can be used with an optional cast iron plate on top for boiling a kettle or toasting bread), a removable ash pan for easy cleaning and optional outside air inlet.

As part of the Eurostove family, Hergom is one of Europe’s largest and most established manufacturers of cast iron stoves and cookers. Made in its own state-of-the-art foundry in Santander, northern Spain, they use only the finest materials to produce durable, efficient, thermally effective heating solutions.

New from Westfire, the Uniq 37 offers a traditional heat solution with a modern look



When you want all the benefits of a wood burning stove but a contemporary style to suit modern interiors, the Uniq 37 from Westfire is the perfect fit.

Exclusive to Eurostove in the UK, this new Anthracite curved design features large glass and side panels for a 180° fire view. Ideal for open-plan spaces as well as cosy living areas, it has a flat back, which prevents the stove from protruding into the room. Options include a floorstanding model with handy store cupboard or a pedestal version to raise the flame height.

Unlike many stoves that need up to 250mm from combustibles, the Uniq 37 can be installed with just 100mm to any combustibles, enabling you to house the stove in a smaller space such as an inglenook fireplace.

Highly efficient with 78 per cent efficiency and 7.2kW heat output, it also has a clean burn and is registered for use in smoke controlled areas, perfect for city living as well as rural homes.

As part of the Eurostove range, Westfire specialise in understated wood burning stoves made with the finest quality materials using highly skilled craftsmanship. Forever future-thinking, Westfire harness heat with a natural process using thermal energy and well managed wood – the ultimate blend of efficiency and style.

Award Winning Stove - The Woodland - Makes Hearth and Home Debut



With the months flying by so quickly, it makes sense to plan ahead and consider how to make your home warm and cosy this winter. Wood burners are a great way to bring radiant heat into the hub of the home and will create an eye-catching focal point, especially in living rooms and open-plan interiors.

The new Woodland stove from Mendip Stoves is an award-winning design, voted ‘Best Stove Under 5kW’ at June’s Hearth & Home Show in Harrogate. It won top marks for the high quality of its design, in particular the large viewing window, which, for a stove with a low output of 4.5kW, is rather unusual. It was also praised for having 100mm to combustibles on both sides and rear of the stove, a feature of most Mendip Stoves which enables them to be placed closer to combustible walls at the rear, a great feature for modern timber frame building construction methods. Many traditional stoves can be as far as 500mm from a combustible wall! This also has the benefit that all the heat generated moves forward into the room, which is where it’s needed most.

A multi-fuel stove with sturdy cast iron door, the new Woodland design has a low 4.5kW output, which makes it perfect for any room and as it’s a closed combustion stove, it can be installed into small or larger spaces such as kitchens and open-plan kitchen-diners without a problem. A log-store version is also available.

The Woodland is part of the Woodland Trust offer from Eurostove. For every stove sold, Mendip Stoves will donate three trees to the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading conservation charity. Chris Baines, MD of Eurostove Ltd, said:

“Eurostove and Mendip Stoves are delighted to be working with the Woodland Trust, helping the charity to plant hundreds of trees. We have a huge commitment to being a sustainable business, which includes encouraging our customers to use wood from sustainable sources to power our stoves. We see the Woodland Trust as being the perfect fit and are delighted that our support will see the planting and protection of trees across the UK.”
