What with Lockdown and everything, Hi-Flame's outstanding new R-Series collection managed to hit The Stove Yard's two stores just as we were locking up for Lockdown. However, once they're on your radar, we're confident that one of these wonderful wood burning stoves could be just perfect for you and your home.
We've had nothing but excellent feedback from customers who've already installed an R-Series stove – like the new owner of the one in the photographs installed by Glass Beach, as part of their complete refurbishment and extension to a stone built cottage near the world-famous Eden Project in Cornwall. Over the years the cottage owner has been the proud possessor of a number of stoves but according to him this latest, one, the Hi-flame R5 with store stand, is by far the best. He's been telling us that it's so much more efficient and controllable than any of the others he's ever owned.
Each R-Series Ecodesign stove makes a quantum leap in reducing emissions from wood burning while maximising the efficiency of fuel to keep your running costs low. The collection consists of three models – the R4 Compact (3.7kW), the R5 Superior (5.0kW) and the R6 Widescreen (5.8kW) with the R5 and R6 giving you the option an integrated store stand version and later this year the R4 will also have a store stand version. All three models are 2022 Ecodesign compliant and also officially listed as Defra Approved for burning wood in Smoke Control Areas. In addition each one has in-built direct external air supply (DEAS) capability for installations in low energy homes or where mechanical ventilation is present.
If you're looking for a high performing contemporary styled stove that also offers you great value for money then any one of the R-Series models is certainly worthy of a place at the top of your shopping list.

Just before Christmas our friend, private dining chef and Northern Ireland's very own barbecue cook extraordinaire, Jasper Castel, paid a visit to our County Down showroom to check out the latest Traegar Grills. Not being one to waste an opportunity where good food and good company is concerned The Stove Yard team contrived to make sure a turkey with all the trimmings could be readily at hand...
After all the scaremongering and misinformation about stoves a national daily paper finally sets the record straight with a factual article on exactly what it costs to run a wood burner compared to electricity and gas. The Sun article makes welcome news to stove lovers everywhere who probably knew all of this anyway. Since the article was written before Firmus, one of Northern Ireland's two gas suppliers, announced that their price will rise by 38%, adding a further £267 to a typical annual gas bill, the comparison will now be much more in favour of stoves.
