Discover our great range of outdoor chimineas, fire bowls & fire pits to add some extra warmth to the cooler evenings relaxing outdoors. When the summer months roll around we all love to spend our days and often evenings in the garden, but when the sun disappears for another day it can often get cooler, leaving us to get our coats and blankets out. Our chimineas are a perfect addition to heat any outdoor space whilst creating a rustic feel, and their small design offers great practicality, making them easy to move around the garden.

 

For a more established warming focal point, we also have a great range of stylish fire bowls and fire pits. Fire pits are brilliant for your outdoor space as many from our range have the ability to be used as a multifunctional grill, letting you and your guests sit around the fire pit, ideal for cooking barbecue food and toasting marshmallows with family and friends. Why not complement your fire pit with our range of garden ornaments and mirrors, to make your garden really feel like an extension of your home.

FAQs

What is a chiminea?

A chiminea is a freestanding fireplace that you load from the front, rather than from the top as you would a fire pit or bowl. Typically, they have a chimney leading up from their bowl-like fire chamber to release the smoke. They can make for very atmospheric outdoor heating and garden furniture, and are typically made from clay or brick.

How to Light a chiminea?

Place logs, firewood, and scrunched up newspaper into the chiminea, but refrain from using liquid fuel. Add some kindling, and then light the newspaper pieces in between everything. When necessary, add more kindling and logs until you’ve got a healthy fire. Each chiminea comes with its own specifications, such as size, so make sure you carefully read the instructions that comes with it before you try to light it.

How to Light a fire pit?

How to light your fire pit depends on the fire pit you opt for. If you choose a gas-powered fire pit, all you need to do is switch the gas on and spark the flame, then sit back and enjoy. For a fire pit that better resembles a fire bowl, you’ll need tinder, kindling (such as small sticks and wood splinters), and logs of firewood. Start small and safely by lighting the tinder and a few pieces of kindling, and once the fire has taken, add the rest of the firewood.

Can you sit a chiminea on decking?

Chimineas should not be placed directly on decking, due to decking being made from flammable products. We advise placing your chiminea on a flat, non-flammable surface.
