Transforming your shed or summerhouse into a cosy retreat is easier than you might think. A log burner not only adds warmth but also creates a charming atmosphere. In this post, we will explore some of the best small log burners for your shed or summerhouse.
The Stockton 3 is a compact log burner, excellent for those looking for a small log burning stove for a shed. It blends traditional design with efficiency, and offers you the flexibility to use wood or smokeless fuels, making it a versatile choice if you live in a Smoke Control Zone. This log burner is 12mm hearth compatible, meaning you don’t need a thick constructional hearth to install it.
If you’re treating your summerhouse like a tiny home, consider the Nordpeis Bergen log burner for its Scandinavian design. It’s known for its high efficiency and contemporary design, making it not just a heating solution but also a style statement for your very own hideaway.
If you don’t want to have to think about installation of a chimney system for a wood stove, then an artificial log burner could be the option you’re looking for. The Gazco Huntingdon 20 electric stove is a great choice that offers the aesthetic of a classic wood burner with the convenience of electricity, ideal for easier installation and maintenance. Ensure that your shed’s electrical wiring is properly installed and certified by a qualified electrician. It’s a good idea to also seal any draughts to prevent them from triggering features like the Open Window Detection, which automatically turns off the heat. If your summerhouse is prone to dampness, running the stove on a timer can help alleviate this problem – just ensure there are no leaks and that the stove is positioned safely away from damp-prone walls.
The Stovax Futura 4 offers a modern twist on the traditional log burner. It’s designed for those who want a contemporary wood stove with cutting-edge design, and practical functionality. The Futura 4 offers an ample 4kW of heat, making it ideal in both proportion and output for a cosy summerhouse setup. It’s DEFRA exempt from smoke control areas, allowing you to burn quality wood even if you live in a city.
Another excellent electric option is the Gazco Marlborough2 Small electric. An artificial log burner with art deco styling, this electric stove is perfect for boot rooms, sheds, snugs, and your summerhouse. Remote control operated, instant relaxation is right at your fingertips with the Marlborough2.
The Gazco Vogue Midi T electric stove combines a sleek, tall frame with the ease of electric heating. We particularly recommend the midline version for your summerhouse, as it offers a log store base to enhance the realism of this artificial log burner. Vogue Midi T electric stoves feature side windows for 180 degree views of the flame-effect, and also comes with an alternative ‘crystal ice effect’ for an ultra-modern fuel bed that offers something a little different from imitation logs.
Slightly larger than the 3, the Stockton 4 log burner is perfect for those who need a bit more heating capacity without sacrificing space. Like its smaller sibling, it supports multiple fuel types and boasts a clean, classic look.
The Nordpeis Orion is a traditional cast iron stove that’s ideal for smaller spaces. Its charming design looks at home in rustic or traditionally styled garden rooms and summerhouses. It features a hot plate which can even be used for boiling a kettle or warming soup, making your outdoor space even more versatile.
