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.”
