Inset or Cassette Stoves

These appliances are set into the wall so that there is no gap around them. A little like your TV screen. They sometimes need a direct air feed and can be less efficient at heating the room than a free-standing model. Not as ubiquitous as other types of woodburning stove, but look stunning and are a popular choice amongst our customers. See our most popular inset stoves.


Double Sided stoves

If you have two fireplaces in two different rooms that are back to back, you can open up both sides and utilise the one stove to heat both rooms. Depending on the size of your opening you may require a single or double length stove.

In the gallery you will find different inset, cassette and double-sided stoves that we have installed. Any prices shown are rough guides and include VAT.

Inset Stove Installation Details

This gorgeous SIA ready, widescreen inset stove sits seemlessly into the chimney cavity. A granite hearth was installed and 904 / 904 chimney liner connected as the customer likes to burn smokeless fuel. A small granite hearth was fitted below to catch any falling embers as required by building regulations. Cost around £4300
