For use in the garden, or on a terrace, this wide selection of products will allow you to socialise outdoors without fear of freezing up.

All that is required is an hour of your time, pair of pliers, gloves and a hammer and you’ll end up with hours of satisfaction.
As part of a range that also incudes the Woodford Black Mini Gas Patio Heater and the Woodford Steel Mini Gas Patio Heater, we’re honing in on this gorgeous white version.

The Woodford Black Gas Patio Heater uses a modern ceramic burner, plus its customisable options allow you to enhance the look of the flame bed with decorative elements such as stones or glass.
