John Willetts Fireplace & Stove Centre
Offering the largest display of stoves and fireplaces in North East England.
John Willetts Fireplace & Stove Centre has grown from a one-man band into the largest fireplace showroom in the North East of England! It remains an independently-owned and family-run business to this day, and the company has been well-established since 1975.
Here, the team have installed our Hobbit stove into a very unique and traditional fireplace, restoring it to its former glory. In comparison to an open fire, our modern small wood burning stove provides a dramatically more efficient and cleaner burning alternative.
The multi-fuel capability of the Hobbit stove and the Hobbit SE means that you can still burn wood, coal, or compressed sawdust briquettes. The period features of this historic fireplace can be used as an impressive set of shelves, and an adorable potted plant makes a lovely touch!
The Eco Design version of our small wood burning stove has two sliding controls at the front of the appliance, so that you can easily adjust the burn-rate of your tiny wood burner. Our small wood stove is pictured here with our stand option, which can be used as a neat little space to store your firewood. This stove extra can also be used to improve the view of your fire, as well as adding to the customisability of your small wood stove and making your appliance easier to refuel.
John Willetts Fireplace & Stove Centre have two showrooms – one in Spennymoor, Durham and the other at Wrekenton, in Gateshead. There is also a large factory unit that stocks a variety of marble and granite, so that customers can choose their own piece for their hearth.
