Direct Stoves Offer Free Stove Fitting Kits*

  • Stove Pipe

  • Register Plate
    1000mm x 500mm
  • Stove Glove
    for protection


What's included in the offer:

  • 1. Black stove pipe. 
  • 2. A registration plate is used to seal the chimney opening off from the room preventing dust, soot, dirt and debris falling down the chimney. It also helps to prevent a draft coming down the chimney. We supply a standard 1000mm x 500mm galvanised steel register plate with all our stoves. You will simply need to cut the plate to size to fit into your chimney opening.
  • 3. We also provide you with a single stove glove that you can use for stoking the fire and adding wood without the risk of personal injury.

*Excludes electric stoves, flueless and balanced flue gas stoves - as these are not required.

Optional Extras.

Carbon Monoxide Detector:

Due to an update to Building Regulations it is now law to have a Carbon Monoxide alarm present in any room with a solid fuel appliance:- The Building Regulations 2000 Approved Document J (2010 Edition) '2.34 Where a new or replacement fixed solid fuel appliance is installed in the dwelling, a carbon monoxide alarm should be provided in the room where the appliance is located.' 


Flue Liner Packs:

The flue liner pack consists of a flue adaptor which connects the stove pipe to the flexible flue liner, Dura Flue flexible flue liner (this is 6" in diameter and 316 Grade) cut to the required length and a 6" pot hanger rain cap this supports the flue liner from the top of the chimney and also acts as a bird guard and rain cap.



Stove Pipe with Door:

A stove pipe with door or access point, allows the chimney to be swept through the pipe itself.  




Stove Glass Insurance:

If you select to take out our stove glass insurance this covers your stove glass for the time period you select. If your glass breaks within that time period we will send you a replacement piece of glass regardless of the reason the glass broke. All we will ask is that you send a picture of the broken glass.
The insurance only covers you for one replacement piece of glass. It doesn't cover you if you break the replacement piece of glass.
All stove glass is covered during delivery and any glass broken in transit to you will be replaced free of charge, without affecting your stove glass insurance.



Please make the relevant selection above when placing your order if you require any of these parts and also select whether or not you require a Carbon Monoxide alarm sending out with your order. Please note that if these parts aren't selected with your order we can't send them for free after your order has been delivered.

Free Delivery

If the goods are showing 24hr or 48hr delivery then this is the quickest time we're able to deliver these items. When you're going through the checkout process you'll be asked to select a delivery date. The goods will be delivered on this day.

It's an all day delivery but we do request that the driver calls one hour before he's due to arrive. The goods will arrive on a lorry that is about the size of a fire engine, so if you have restricted access please let us know in advance.

The lorry will have a tail lift that allows the driver to get the stove off the vehicle, the stove will be packed on a pallet and the driver will have a pallet truck. He'll be able wheel the pallet (stove) as close as possible to your property, if you have a garage he'll be able to wheel it into there for you.

The pallet truck can only be wheeled over a finished surface so it's not possible to wheel it over a gravelled drive nor is it possible to wheel up or down steps.

The pallets are normally about a 1m wide so this is the minimum width gate they can fit through.  Please note that the driver is not insured to unpack or carry the stove into your house.

Two Man Delivery

As the name suggests with our two man delivery service the goods will be delivered by two men. They will carry your stove into the room of your choice.

They will normally carry it up 1 flight of stairs (if it's safe to do so) but this is at their discretion so if you have a 3rd floor flat please inform us before hand to avoid any issues during delivery.

The two man delivery normally take 5 - 10 working days to be delivered from dispatch. Once the goods come into stock you will be contacted and delivery arranged.

Does the cream stove show the soot?
Hi Aisling, thanks for the question!

No, the cream stove won't show the soot as long as you follow the operating instructions. Find them on the product page under the "Downloads" tab.

The cream stove will need cleaning regularly, do this when it's cold to the touch, just use a soft damp cloth. The airwash system will keep the glass clear as long as you're using dry fuel, wet fuel will cause tarring.

Should you find you are getting soot deposits on the cream body, we would suggest the chimney needs cleaning and also that you check for leaks or blockages.

Remember, this stove is not designed to operate with the doors open.

Follow the instructions and you'll have years of service and a beautiful cream stove.

Hope this helps?

Hi -is the almond stove enamel or painted?I'm looking for m/fuel, so I assume (I know obvious!) I do have to p/chase the mf kit or would my fitter?
Hi Lorraine,
Thank you for your question.
The Charnwood C-Five is painted.
The multifuel kit would need to be ordered to burn coal or smokeless coal. Wood burns on a flat surface but solid fuel burns better with an airflow from underneath, the multifuel kit is a specially made movable grate that allows this. (
If you wanted an enamelled stove can I suggest a Carron 4.7kW in cream enamel or a Carron Dante in cream enamel? These have similar heat outputs to the C-Five and are both multifuel stoves.
Hope this helps?
Kind regards

Is the flue pipe available with this stove single or twin wall? Is it possible to purchase additional colour matched flue?
Hi Karen,
Thank you for your question.
The colour match pipe we sell with this Charnwood C-Five stove is single wall and is available in lengths of 600mm or 900mm.
Twin wall is generally attached to the colour match pipe using an adaptor. Our twin wall system is available in black or stainless steel, however Charnwood do sell the paint, so you could paint a stainless steel twin wall flue to match the stove.
Please don't use regular paint to cover stove pipe and flue systems.
Hope this helps?
Kind regards,

I've seen this stove with a wooden handle in a showroom but your photo is showing a black one. Do they come with both?
Hi Joanna,
Thank you for your question.
The Charnwood stoves come with a wooden handle.
I'm not sure why our images show coloured ones, we get the images from the manufacturer and have mentioned this to them now.
Hope this helps?

Hi, can you add side heat panels to the C-5 and if so what would be the min distance to combustibles??
Hi Helen,
Thank you for your question.
There is an optional rear heatshield for the C-Five that reduces the distance to combustibles behind the stove to 175mm but there aren't any side panels so the distance to combustibles to the sides remains at 500mm.
The Charnwood Cove1 and Island1 have optional side panels that reduce the distance to 250mm or 300mm.
The new Charnwood Skye has a side distance of just 300mm without additional panels
For more solutions please see our recent blog post -
Hope this helps?
Kind regards,

What are the dimensions with the log store
Thank you for your question.
The logstore stand raises the Charnwood C-Five height to 745mm and the external air intake height to 250mm.
Width remains 485mm and depth remains 398mm.
The logstand increases the standard C-Five weight from 96Kg to 104kg.
hope this helps?
Kind regards,
