This week, lockdown measures have been further eased to allow us to spend time with our loved ones, both indoors and out with hugs permitted too!
As barbecue season approaches, we’ll want to spend more time in our gardens and exterior spaces alfresco dining and making up for lost time.

With that said, multifunctional gas and electric heaters are here to help. No longer a bulky wired appliance that requires plugging in once dragged out from the shed, garden heaters and firepits have been given a glow up this season. Read on for our hot picks…

This garden fireplace is lined with natural volcanic pumice, allowing the fire to heat up quickly with less fuel.
Made from a recycled oil drum, this reclaimed firepit is ideal for a stylish, cosy barbecue.
