  • Both Sarah and I would like to thank you for the installation of the wood burner and how you've handled things with us. We're delighted with the stove and beam, we feel it makes the house more of a home.

    Ross Gowland 02/11/2018

  • Thank you so much for all your help with our lovely stove, your knowledge and experience was invaluable when we were making our choices of stove and surround. We have found the whole process a lot easier than we were expecting and your installation staff were great. They tried their hardest to avoid any unnecessary making good and made sure all of our furniture etc. was well covered during the works. We are looking forward to having the fire lit and not worrying about flying embers, which was an issue with our open fire!

  • We came to the Tinderbox thinking we'd like one type of fireplace, but having seen the full range and had a good discussion with Ruth and Robert, we decided on another model. Installation was done swiftly and competently by their fitters and we are delighted with the result. We recommend The Tinderbox for its welcome, friendly service and good support.

  • Thank you for everything you have done for us, especially for the custom trim, which has finished it off perfectly. I will be sure to recommend you to friends and neighbours who may be considering installing a stove.

  • A search on Google introduced us to The Tinderbox. We now have a beautiful log burner installed to replace our Victorian cast iron fireplace. Tinderbox kindly removed the old fireplace to enable us to gauge the space available and give us time to choose an appropriate log burner. Their staff were always extremely helpful, any query immediately responded to, and all necessary work involved to remove the old fireplace and install the new burner was undertaken to the highest quality. Would recommend Tinderbox without hesitation – and would also recommend the joys of a log burner!

  • I've just got home and the stove looks lovely. We are both really pleased and look forward to using it this winter. The installation team were brilliant and have done a splendid job

  • Since your team finished installing the stove, I think that you're safe in the knowledge that we're both very happy with the result and we've had many successful burns in the last few months. Each time we spend evenings in the lounge, We still find ourselves not quite able to believe that our vision of what we wanted for the room could have turned out so well. Thank-you so much to yourselves and the wider team for making our vision a reality.

  • Look at this gorgeous fireplace. Love it so much, Thank you.

    TU Chieveley 07/12/17

  • Tinderbox, Thanks to the team for such a fabulous job. We love our new stove and fireplace and can’t wait to snuggle down!

  • The woodburner has been a huge success - a big thank you to all at Tinderbox for getting in sorted in time for Christmas - it is great - my husband is g pleased with it

    EK Wokefield 20/12/16

  • Robert and the team came and fitted our beautiful stove on a wet and windy day before Christmas. They braved the elements to get all that was needed down the chimney. They covered all the furniture, any dust was hoovered away. This is our third stove from Tinderbox, none of the chimneys have been easy - but they have solved all challenges that our house has thrown at them! Our house is cosy and we have 3 beautiful and effective stoves. Robert has gone on to do several more stoves locally. Ruth is a star in the office, especially in relation to our last stove which we were very specific about and was hard to source. I would recommend them without a doubt.

  • We are thrilled with the stove and the excellent, painless installation. Thank you and your guys.

    M&P Overton 05/03/16

  • Buying our wood burning stove from Tinderbox was a very pleasant experience. Right from the start, on meeting Ruth, we found her to be a pleasant relaxed person who was empathetic to our needs and helped us come to a decision without any pressure. When Rob came to our home to advise on installation and prepare a quote he was also very relaxed, helpful and enabled us to come to a decision we were happy with. The three guys who installed the stove and chimney were very polite and likeable. They were conscious of not disrupting our daily routines, keeping the work as tidy and clean as possible, and they all left their shoes at the front door! The quality of their work was very professional. All in all we were glad we went to Tinderbox because we now have a professionally installed wood burning stove for a very reasonable price.

    Good to do business with you!'

From the initial contact we would book in a site survey as your requirements and fireplace are completely individual.

We want to keep you warm and safe.

Once we have visited and taken all the relevant details and your vision as to what you want to achieve with your fireplace we will book you in for a one to one at the showroom at a pre-arranged appointment.

At the showroom we will go through all the points relating to the fireplace to choose appliances, materials etc. our aim is to give you an aesthetically pleasing fireplace with the right materials that give it longevity.

We will then produce a quotation based on this knowledge.

If you chose to proceed with us we normally take a deposit of the largest component paid in full and book in dates that are suitable to both parties, if we need to book in other professions plasterers, electricians, scaffolders etc. we will take care of this for you to leave you just dealing with The Tinderbox.

We will then produce our magic…
