2. Chesney’s Salisbury 5 Series Stove: £900 ex VAT, Chesney’s

This 5kW stove by Chesney’s has a traditional style that’s minimal enough to suit contemporary interiors too. It is approved by Defra, and burns with a high efficiency of 84.5 per cent. This burner is for wood only, but the 6 and 8 series are multi-fuel for use with charcoal too. For an extra cost, you can choose from a range of seven traditional colours including terracotta, sage green and Atlantic blue.
