Woodburning stoves – our pick of the best

10 images

There’s nothing better than the glow of a log fire on a chilly winter’s evening. All woodburning stoves require a chimney to remove emissions from the room. They usually sit within or in front of a fireplace opening, but freestanding stoves are gaining popularity, especially for open-plan areas, although they still need a flue. Woodburners use only wood, while a multifuel stove can burn wood, smokeless fuel and coal. The difference lies in the grate. Wood will burn on a bed of ash, but coals need air entering from beneath, so a multifuel stove has a grate that adjusts to suit the fuel. Take a look at our pick of the best stoves to keep your home cosy.
