Find the Best Wood-Burning Stove Manufacturer for your Style and Budget
Choosing the right wood-burning stove for your home is no different than any other aspect of interior design. You need to establish the look you’re going for in your room.
Whether you want to find the perfect stove and then decorate your room to match it or you’re looking for a stove to go with your existing décor, you need to consider the sort of appearance you would like to create.
Stove manufacturers tend to have a particular style, which is often consistent throughout their range. Finding a manufacturer that matches your taste is usually the start of finding the right wood burner. You just need to decide: is a traditional stove or a contemporary stove most in-keeping with your taste?
Once you’ve done that, you can find a stove that is right for your budget. Fortunately, Gr8fires.co.uk caters for a range of styles and budgets. Here is our guide to finding your ideal wood-burning stove manufacturer.
For reasonably priced traditional appliances, one of your best options is Evergreen Stoves. Evergreen offer a range of classic-styled stoves, starting from £199 for a potbelly stove.
Evergreen DM700 Spruce 7.5kw Pot Belly Multi-fuel Stove
Evergreen ST0406GS Poplar 8kW Multi-Fuel Stove
Mazona Orlando 4.5kW Multi-Fuel Stove Small
Occupying a similar market position is Arizona Stoves. The majority of the Arizona range is priced at around £350-600, although they also make boiler stoves with a much greater heat output and, consequently, a higher price tag.
Arizona Montana Enamel 659 8kw multi fuel DRY stove
Stovax, which does include one or two more modern stoves within its range, operates in the £600-1,500 price range.
Stovax Stockton 3 Multi-fuel Wood Burning Stove
Hunter Stoves, arguably slightly more traditional than Stovax given the greater detailing in the design of its appliances, are priced very similarly.
Great British Stoves, perhaps better known as GBS, offers a range of competitively priced modern stoves. Its sleek, minimal appliances are priced between £280 and £500.
GBS Mariner 4kw Multi-fuel Stove
The mid-range contemporary stove market is well stocked. For a clean, minimal interpretation of the wood-burning stove, consider the Aarrow Stoves produced by Arada. An Aarrow stove will be priced at around £500-900.
Aarrow Acorn View 4 kW Flexifuel Wood Burning Stove
Carron Stoves offer a stylish and colourful range. The stoves are quite deliberately light on detail, but come with neat lines, an interesting design and a variety of different finishes.
Carron 4.7kw Red Enamel DEFRA Multifuel Stove
It is worth mentioning Dimplex Stoves at this point. Its range features some excellent contemporary stoves. However, it also manufactures stoves that would be equally at home in the traditional stoves category.
Dimplex Westcott Inset Multi Fuel Wood Burning Stove
The undisputed king of the eye-catching feature stove is French manufacturer Invicta. Its range varies from a modern take on the stove as we know it, to spectacular designs that are as much works of art as they are heating appliances. Prices start at around £600 and go up to £3,000.
Invicta Seville Red Woodburning stove
For modern luxury that is a little more understated than Invicta, try the Yeoman Stoves range.

Hi I am looking fro a Defra approved stove that is wide and low. I did prefer the AGA Shawbury but
the installation guide state 800 mm in front to combustibles. this is far too much as the overall
distance from wall to carpet would be about 1200 with that. Do you have stoves listed by width,
height etc. I don't want to go over 600 high but want at least 600 width. Not too contemporary.

@Margaret Morris Hi Margaret, Unfortunately, the back boiler will have to come out. This article

I have a traditional fire with a back boiler that heats 4 radiators upstairs (gravity fed) is there
a wood burner you could recommend. The room is 22' x 13 and well insulated.

@gert swarte. Hi Gert, Thanks for your question. We don't have anything that's specifically made for
that use. In fact, the one thing you can guarantee is that whatever you pick will rust. On that
basis, it would be better to go for cast iron rather than steel. It might be worth going for
something that's traditional and ornate in its styling so that the corrosion will perhaps add a bit
of character and a rustic look. Maybe something from the Evergreen collection?
https://www.gr8fires.co.uk/stoves/all-stoves/manufacturer/evergreen If that doesn't appeal, we'd
recommend a masonry fireplace instead. Thanks.
gert swarte 2015-06-22 15:52:06
can you recommended a stove that can be installed under a open porch
Gr8Fires 2015-02-28 10:51:29
@Tony Abbott Hi Tony, That's correct - add up the total area that you want to heat across both
rooms. The Evergreen Elm is a nice traditionally-styled, doubled-sided stove:

Hi, I have two rooms, 50m3 and 52m3. The dividing wall has a gas grate in a cavity 960mm wide by
720mm high and 1100mm depth.serving both rooms. I am looking for a double sided dual fuel burner. Do
I simply add the two areas together for a kW rating and can you recommend a suitable traditional
burner. Thank you

@Laurence Hi Laurence, That is a tactic that's used quite regularly, though it's not an exact
science. Yes, there are ducts to help with this, as well as fans, vents and grilles. Thanks.
Gr8Fires 2015-01-26 12:50:30
@Judith Harper Hi Judith, A similar effect would be achieved by using an external air stove
(https://www.gr8fires.co.uk/stoves/external-air-stoves) and/or a twin wall flue
Laurence 2014-12-16 13:33:08
Hello I have two rooms 4m square divided by a stud wall. I have a fireplace in one of them but
really want to be able to heat both. Your calculator comes up with a 3.7 kW stove for the one
room. I'm thinking of buying a 4.7 or 5 kW so we can heat the other room which is the one we spend
most time in and if we need to use the room with the stove in just shut it down so it burns slower.
Does this make sense? Is there some kind of ducting that can transfer hot air to the second room
from the boiler? Also I see some stoves are steel and some iron what are the benefits of each?
Judith Harper 2014-11-21 17:17:03

Hi Delouris It depends on the size of the radiators, but you'd certainly been needing a stove
producing at least 20kW, we would think. Thanks, Gr8Fires
delouris cox 2014-03-06 06:54:59
I need a stove with a back boiler free standing and can run 12 radiators and heat the hot water
