Now encompassing 5 different models from the smaller and award winning Heat & Grill to outdoor cooking and heating on a larger scale with the top of the range Garden Party which provides cooking and heating in grandeur! There is an option for just heat if you already have a BBQ the Clean Burn offers the simplicity of outdoor heat in with very little fuel.
Within the offer there is also the fully redesigned for 2020, Terrace Gourmet The large circular grill is big enough to cook for 8-10 people with any of six cooking methods: grilling, roasting, baking, smoking, wok cooking and wood fired pizza.
WE’VE TURNED OUTDOOR HEATING INSIDE OUT
DUAL FUNCTION The Heat & Grill and Gourmet Range are the first single appliances on the market to successfully combine an efficient outdoor heater with a barbecue.
EFFICIENT The heat is delivered from a sealed chamber, meaning that the burn rate and heat output can be regulated by a simple control system.
ENVIRONMENTAL The Heat range of Heater Barbecues employs the same technology used in our range of indoor wood burning stoves and therefore only produce a clean burn.
ATMOSPHERIC The Heat range allows a generous but protected view of the fire not only making it a highly atmospheric experience but reducing any need to move if the wind changes direction.
When you’re deciding on which stove and style is right for you it’s really worth considering not just the aesthetic (although that is REALLY important of course!) but some more practical factors worth considering before moving on to what will look best are:
What type of space are you installing in to? Livingroom, conservatory etc.
What type of space are you installing in to? Livingroom, conservatory etc.
Whether or not the room in which you are installing also has central heating/ underfloor heating and how effectively it works
Ceiling height – seems odd but trust us, it’s an important factor!
Chimney – do you need one, or if you have one already have it tested before you install a new stove
What kind of heat output will be needed (KW output)
As an indicator it is generally accepted that for every 14 cubic metres of space, you will need 1kW (approximately) of heat output in order to a achieve a room temperature of 21 degrees in an otherwise unheated room.
Once you have an idea of what size of output, and if your chimney is suitable for your new stove you then are down to the more “fun” aspects!
The style and function of the room in which you are installing your stove will dictate a lot of the stove you chose, also the overall aesthetic of your home will play a part. If you have an ultra-modern glass fronted home with all white surfaces and lots of open spaces chances are that you will want a larger output modern style stove there are many of these more modern styles available now – these examples of the Contura i51 which Contura say “With generous glass areas on three sides and a spacious firebox, Contura i51 is truly an insert for the modern home. The technology beneath the aesthetic hood is specially adapted for houses with modern heating technology that creates negative pressure.”
We also love the Jøtul F481 for it’s “architectural, clean expression” The pedestal works, not only as a design feature, but also as practical storage space for accessories and logs.
If you have a very classic home or a traditional fire place it is likely that you will want more of a practical traditional square cast iron design – although some of the more traditional style stoves now come in a range of colours. The Charnwood Cove 2 is available in a range of finishes to compliment your room.
If the Cove is still a little more contemporary than you’d like and you are looking for a fully traditional stove which will look classic and timeless there are a number of options in varying outputs and sizes in the showroom. Here are a couple of our top picks. The Classic lines of both the Chesney’s Salisbury (pictured left) and the ACR Rowan Dale (right) offer the traditional stove look but with all the Eco Credentials you need to ensure you are Clean Air compliant even in Smoke Control Areas (SCA).
Finally there is another option for those of you wanting a bit different there is always the Clearview or Dean Forge stoves which have a small oven in the top, prefect for a multi-function appliance, warm your supper whilst warming your home!
When we think about having a cosy woodburning stove we probably all think of having a traditional fireplace in a living room. Following on from our blog all about alternatives to a traditional fireplace, we have also seen an increased number of stoves going in to more unusual locations!
The spike in popularity of log cabins, yurts, camping pods and summer houses has meant a rise in the number of mini-stoves we have seen being installed in to these types of structure. The nature of these outdoor installations means that they are unable to be connected to mains heating and therefore using a mini wood-burner is an ideal solution. Creating a cosy, warm feeling inside an otherwise “outdoor” space. These types of installation usually require either a heat shield panel if against wood or in the case of a yurt they’re almost always positioned in the centre of the structure.
We have also seen a recent increase in the number of installations of stoves in other rooms in peoples’ homes, we’ve enjoyed installing recent projects in both conservatories and bedrooms.
Conservatory installations provide a great focal point and another usable living space which in winter months may otherwise be neglected. Conservatories are often cold and closed off in winter as heating a big glass space can be costly. By installing a wood burning stove you are providing a heating source that is not only a fantastic design feature but is also a clean air compliant appliance which will help combat climate change by using clean burn technology.
Bedrooms, although this may seem unusual, are actually quite a traditional setting for a fire. In homes – before central heating – a lot of people had a fireplace in the bedroom and many homes still do have this as a decorative feature. The trend towards re-opening these fireplaces and chimneys and then fitting a beautiful EcoDesign Ready stove means that your bedroom is always toasty and warm. Lazy Sunday mornings are elevated to a whole new level of comfort with a stove and kettle topper, at this time of year you need not even venture downstairs to snuggle up by the wood-burner if you have one in your bedroom!
We have a full range of stoves in our showroom, from mini stoves for your holiday pod to a large conservatory warmer.
When you chose a new wood-burning stove it’s not just a stove you are choosing.
We know a new stove is often just one part of a whole redesign in your home, whether that is in a new extension living space, , re-vamped kitchen or cozying up your lounge, all of these installations require more than just the stove itself.
A traditional fireplace re-design brings opportunities for new hearths and fireplace surrounds with a whole range of products available from beautifully elegant limestone to rustic aged oak. A design style that is currently trending is for oak ‘floating’ beam mantle shelves which can be chosen in a range of finishes and colour gradients to suit your specific preference for design style.Focus Fireplaces have a wide range to choose from including solid wood oak surrounds. Manor House Stoves are able to advise, supply and install a range of fireplaces including bespoke stone fireplaces. I think we can all agree that nothing is quite as homely or festive at this time of year as a wood stove in a cosy fireplace!
Howeverthe trend in recent years has also extended beyond the traditional “fireplace” design, the joy of a wood-burning stove being is that it does not need a “fireplace” as such, it can be installed as a stand-alone statement piece in a living space. In these designs the flue pipe is left visible forming part of the overall design and the finishing of wall behind the stove and hearth is where you can bring your own individual style and interior design to create a whole new look to fireplaces!
Some of our recent favourite installations have been of this style incorporating new innovative ways to create a centrepiece for your room with enamelled heat shield panels and hearth bases, to decorative glass hearths; we have collected some of our highlights from our manufacturers below.
At this year’s hearth and home show Vlaze teamed up with Charnwood Stoves to launch both of their new offerings, these heat shield panels come in a myriad of designs and colours to fit in with any room. From exotic leaves to intricate patterns there is a design to highlight any room!
We have also really enjoyed the resurgence of glass hearths, these specifically designed toughened glass pads offer a modern edge to homes where perhaps a traditional stone setting would not be the most fitting. Often, but not always used in more modern properties, they are regularly teamed with a tiled wall, creating the feel of a static fireplace without the need to build one.
But not all modern stoves are static! There are a range of contemporary stoves that have the option of turntable bases so that in open-plan rooms the stove can be rotated to face either direction as your daily activities move – to the dining table area while you’re eating,to the lounging space when relaxing.This brings a whole new design opportunity for the ‘fireplace’ and the expert staff at Manor House Stoves will not only help you find your perfect hearth and design treatment for the surrounding area but also advise you on the building regulation requirements to ensure your final choice is safe as well as beautiful-looking.
At Manor House Stoves we have a full range of stoves on display all of which are SIA EcoDesign Ready meaning they provide much cleaner burn and we have a range of styles to suit any taste and room specification – so whether you are looking for a traditional stove for a traditional fireplace or a modern stand-alone design piece we have the stove for you.

This is the time of year when the stove manufacturers launch their new products and as a premier dealer we have had the pleasure of previewing what’s coming onto the market ready for the new season.
Here are just some of our highlights…
Aire 5kw woodburner – pictured above at Charnwood’s recent dealer event – With an exceptionally large view of the fire and both DEFRA and Sia Ecodesign ready it’s sure to be hit for both traditional and modern fireplace installations.
Charnwood have also re-launched a classic, and long time best seller, the Country 4Blu. This stove will continue to be a hot little favourite, and as it has now been re-engineered to incorporate the Charnwood BLUtechnology, its ready to update any traditional setting and now meets 2022 DEFRA Clean Air Efficiency Regualtions.
Woodwarm Phoenix Range
A model range of 4kw to 8kw free standing stoves with variations of standard height or log-store style, plus an insert stove for a standard UK fire-opening, the newly launched Ecodesign ready stoves have ultra-low emissions and easily exceed the 2022 Clean Air Act pass rate. They are exceptionally easy to light, and the controllability is outstanding.
There is also another wonderful benefit of buying a Woodawrm stove, woodwarm have pledged to plant a tree for every stove sold!
“Woodwarm stoves Phoenix Ecodesign Ready Ranges of stoves can help you to be environmentally friendly because we are planting a tree for every Ecodesign Ready stove sold. Trees absorb CO2 to purify our air, they also reduce the level of air pollutants by intercepting airborne particles and absorbing pollutant gasses. Trees can be a carbon neutral resource; the C02 released when burning is matched by the amount absorbed when it is growing. By planting trees, wood can be a sustainable source of fuel”
There are two re-designs of Norwegian classics now meeting 2022 EcoDesign Clean Air regulations, these two will no doubt be a real hit as the originals are best sellers!
The Dartmoor range including the lovely Baker for those wishing to go forward withan alternative cosy cook facility, the Dartmoor Baker W5 Se wood burning stove is based on the successful Dartmoor Stove Range. It has an integral oven above the fire box utilising the heat from the fire to cook, bake or warm delicious food.
All the Dartmoor Baker’s have a removable cleaning plate located inside the oven. This door provides a cleaning access to the top of the oven or for sweeping the chimney when fitted with a top exit flue.
Baker Plus 5
New developments to continually improve the Swedish Contura stoves, all of which are SIA EcoDesign Ready, the three main improvements within the Contura 500 range which is Europes most popular stove range are;
An ingenious ‘Automatic Start’ function which automatically controls the lighting air through the grate. It means that the door can be shut at the same time that the start-up fire is lit and the stove therefore becomes completely independent of room air. Which means it feels safer not having to leave the stove with an open door during the start-up fire. It is also perfect for modern buildings with negative pressure.
A ‘Refueling Boost Function’ With the new functionaity you can ”save” embers that have nearly died. You just open the handle on the left, new oxygen flows in from below and brings out the embers so that the new wood catches light. After a short time you can once again enjoy a beautiful fire and heating.
Beauty in the smallest detail according to Contura , the 500 Style has a new ashbox, which, thanks to its design and damping function, slides quietly and softly during emptying.
At Manor House Stoves we are committed to selling only the highest quality with advanced technology stoves to contribute to the improvement in air quality and reduction of particle emissions.
