Every year David and Sue the owners of Manor House Stoves visit Harrogate in North Yorkshire to the annual Hearth and Home Show.
“We love visiting Hearth and Home, it gives us a chance to not only see what’s new in the industry, and check out the fantastic new products on offer from our favourite manufacturers, but it also gives us the opportunity to meet up with other retailers from across the country and talk shop – and we love to talk shop!
As always the stands were fantastically put together and filled to the rafters with interesting and brilliant new products. The really fantastic thing about Hearth and Home is, as with our own show room, a large number of the stoves are actually working and this gives a far better experience of how the stoves look and perform in a ‘live’ environment.
Obviously as you might imagine the big talking point of the show is the EcoReady ranges ready for the clean air regulations coming into law in 2022. We really enjoyed the SIA (Stove Industry Alliance) stand and their presentations regarding the newly formed SIA Retail Group. Manor House Stoves are now fully signed-up and on-board to support their work with DEFRA and other government bodies on progressing the clean air strategy and ensuring accurate information is shared regarding the positive contribution Ecoready stoves make to reducing pollution and meeting the European directive.
One of our other highlights is always seeing some of the brilliant new accessories coming onto the market, many of these items you never knew you needed but once you’ve seen them you can’t live without them! From custom designed back panels, ceramic stove plates, fire surrounds, chimney cowls and some really great ideas for solid fuel storage.”
We look forward to getting some of the fantastic things we saw in Harrogate down to our showroom in Garsington for you to see. Call in to see what we picked up or call 01865 361505.
