Business Update We are happy to announce our showroom is now open on a appointment only basis. This is to ensure the government guidelines surrounding social distancing can be adhered to. We are still taking […]
We have often contemplated the introduction of an outdoor living/BBQ section to the Bowland Stoves website and now we have finally done it! Home parties, family barbecues and more appreciation of outdoor living has led to a huge increase in demand for a whole range of outdoor living products. This range of products perfectly complements our core stove business which peaks between the autumn and spring with BBQs more popular in the summertime. So what does our outdoor living section offer?
Landmann has grown from its humble beginnings in Germany in 1966 (yes, when England last won the World Cup) into a worldwide conglomerate taking in Europe, United States, Australia and China. Rather uniquely, this family business has managed to maintain the family ethos with a firm focus on quality – it is certainly a case of “you get what you pay for”. These are quality products at affordable prices which include gas and charcoal barbecues, smokers and BBQ accessories. There is no doubt that Landmann understand the consumer market like no other and continues to deliver on its promises. Innovative yet affordable, focused with a worldwide exposure, it is no surprise that their products are literally flying off the shelves.
To describe Parkray Stoves (part of the Hunter Group) as a breath the fresh air is correct in so many different ways. This is a range of stoves which has been in the offing for more than 20 years and when launched it was certainly worth the wait. All Parkray Stove models can burn well-seasoned wood even for those living in smoke control areas. There are very few if any other stove manufacturers in the UK who can make such a promise. So, what makes Parkray Stoves so special?
The beauty of a successful range of wood-burning/multifuel stoves is the ability to maintain a core style/design yet appeal to a broad range of potential customers. It is fair to say that the Parkray Stove range has a very distinct style, traditional look with a touch of contemporary, and appeals to a vast range of different people. We have the relatively small bodied wide screen stoves right up to the huge powerhouses which are double sided and double depth. The range of stoves shows that the company certainly has its finger on the pulse of consumer trends.
While our online services will continue as normal, we have taken the difficult decision to close our premises with immediate effect. We are the final piece of the supply chain jigsaw and therefore dependent on our supplies remaining open for business. As we indicated in our recent update, this has proven more and more challenging and over the last few days many of our suppliers have temporarily closed their operations.
As you will be aware, in light of recent government advice we closed our showroom in order to protect our staff and customers. At this moment in time we are still taking orders (over the telephone and online) and despatching within 48-hours where possible. However, a number of our suppliers have begun a controlled shutdown of their operations.
As a consequence, we envisage delays in orders where the items are not held on site and need to be requested from our supplies. Obviously, any outstanding orders of this nature will be dispatched as soon as possible. Where we have items on site these will be delivered in the normal manner as the postal services are classed as key and still operating as normal. It is highly likely that we will soon be closing our offices and working remotely, taking orders online and answering any queries you may have. This side of the business will be unaffected by the coronavirus lockdown.
The Arada Ecoburn stove range has been extremely popular for some time and continues to grab the attention of stove enthusiasts. Many will be delighted to learn that there are some exceptional deals available on three individual Arada Ecoburn stoves. These are the Arada Ecoburn Plus 4, Arada Ecoburn Plus 5 and the Arada Ecoburn Plus 5 widescreen. The price reductions will not be repeated again and are literally on a first come first served basis while stocks last.
So, what can you expect with this range of Arada Ecoburn Plus stoves?
Arada Ecoburn Plus 4 multifuel stove
The Arada Ecoburn Plus 4 multifuel stove is the smallest in the above range but do not underestimate the power and the heat capacity. This is described as suitable for smaller rooms or habitats and offers 4.5 kW heat output. The preheated air wash system ensures that the enlarged viewing area is clear at all times so you can enjoy the flickering flames and the burning embers. The stove has a stainless steel ash pan and throat plate with an externally controlled riddling grate.
It is safe to say that the coronavirus is presenting a number of challenges to businesses and the wider society. At this moment in time these challenges are having no material impact upon our business operations and we don’t envisage any significant issues in the short to medium term. You may well have seen our recent update on Facebook.
In order to ensure the well-being of staff and customers we respectfully request those with coronavirus symptoms to refrain from visiting our showroom at this moment in time. We appreciate this may be inconvenient but it is still business as usual and we can be contacted by a variety of means such as:-

We will publish updates as and when applicable.
Thanking you in anticipation,
ACR is one of the U.K.’s leading wood-burning and multifuel stove manufacturers with a range of eye-catching, durable and extremely popular products. The mishandling of the recent change in government regulations regarding wet wood and solid fuel has seen more people looking towards electric stoves. So, while the ACR Electric stove range has been in place for some time it is certainly receiving more interest day by day.
We will now take a look at the current products in the ACR electric stove range, what they have to offer and the huge leap in technology compared to traditional “three bar electric fires”.
Thanks to the mass media’s incompetent reporting of new government regulations regarding wet wood and solid fuel, there is a trend building towards electric stoves. The fact that wood-burning and multifuel stoves will not be banned has unfortunately been lost in the incorrect headline grabbing titles published by many media outlets. So, this brings us onto the subject of electric stoves which have for many years been hidden away in the shadow of wood-burning/multifuel options.
It is safe to say that electric stoves have come a long way in a short time and many consumers are now looking towards this area of the market as a viable alternative. So, what can you expect from a modern day electric stove?
Over the last few years we have written many different blog post covering regulations, maintenance, new stoves and an array of different advice. The recent announcement that the UK government is to ban wet wood fuel highlighted the popularity and importance of some of our recent and historic posts. So, we thought it would be useful to put together a list of the top 10 most popular stove information/maintenance blog posts.
1. What is a stove baffle plate and why might it need replaced?
This has been our most popular blog post by a long way and highlights the importance of stove baffle plates. The best way to describe a stove baffle plate is a shield at the top of the fire chamber which deflects heat back into the combustion chamber. This ensures that as much heat as possible builds up within your stove and is then radiated throughout your room in a controlled manner.
