Mendip’s new Ashcott-Wide wood burner offers a spectacular view of the flickering flames inside
Imagine coming home after a hard day at work or a refreshing walk at the weekend to the warmth and cosy glow of a wood burning stove. Not only does a freestanding stove add heat and character to a room but it also brings a central focal point to living areas, dining spaces and open-plan living. If space is somewhat limited, don’t worry, as Mendip Stoves has the perfect solution with its new Ashcott Wide design, which may be wide at 620mm but it is only 260mm deep with a heat output of 6kW, ideal for smaller spaces, well-insulated new-builds and flats that don’t require too much heating.
The design is sturdy, robust and hardwearing with a 50mm to rear combustibles, high-quality contoured cast iron door, slim convection top plate and sculptured cast iron legs alongside a large glazed window, giving a full view of the dancing flames inside. The magnetic door catch is easy to use while the compact design is perfect for classic and contemporary interiors.
As the Ashcott Wide is an eco-friendly catalyst model, you’ll also benefit from a better all-round performance as well as helping the environment too. Suitable for built-up areas and smoke control zones, the stove is SIA and Defra approved and is 2022 Ecodesign Ready. “Whatever style of stove you’re looking for, it makes sense to move to an Ecodesign Ready model now,” says Chris Baines, managing director of Mendip Stoves. “Air quality will be improved as wood is burned more efficiently, which in turn gives homeowners the cleanest, cosiest environment in which to spend time with family and friends. We are here to help consumers make the right choice for both their home and the environment.”
Available as a traditional leg design as well as a logstore option, prices start at £1,250.
Mendip Stoves is proud to work in collaboration with the Woodland Trust. For every stove sold, Mendip will donate £10 to the UK’s leading conservation charity. “Eurostove and Mendip Stoves are delighted to be working with the Woodland Trust,” adds Chris, “helping the charity to plant hundreds of trees. We have a huge commitment to being a sustainable business, which includes encouraging customers to use wood from sustainable sources. 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.” Over the last 40 years the Woodland Trust has planted over 23 million native trees. The £10 from every stove sold is enough to plant three native trees.
