Containing only 100% wood that's responsibly forested and no additives, there's no reason not to enjoy comfort that can only come from a real wood-burning fire.

Been using these for a while, lasts a decent time and burns well. (been paying in store price though which i think is a couple of quid more) As its spring now guessing they are reducing the price for the "warm" weather ;), but should be able to stock up for next year.

I've had a wood burning system for 18yrs that I fitted myself for next to nothing. I have my hot water and radiators plumbed in as well BUT I can tell you now if your wood isn't FREE. then it costs more than gas. Those logs in my fire would last an hour. Multiply by 15 hours for a day is nigh on £30 if I have my gas on day and night it's £5 a day.

Thanks OP and thanks Pat for your wood burning insight...

been this price for at least the last six months good heat output

The pros use the free wooden stirrers from McDonalds

very good

Just ordered some. Thanks OP for your post!

Can anyone echo pat's thoughts? Been wanting to get a wood burner but hearing mixed reviews? Are they not economical? Pain to tidy and you have to reload wood every few hours?

These are just about okay.... especially for those trips to center parcs where they are a real rip off to buy. However, don't expect too much from them. They burn, and they burn for the time they tell you, but they don't give off as much heat as coal or logs (though logs don't last as long)

slightly off topic but there you go... we have a multi burner (as well as central heating). I can tell you also that they're great for heating the room, but I echo the previous comments; if you have free wood then go for it, otherwise it's expensive as wood logs don't take any time to burn.

Heat Added - have ordered 5 bags.
We had our wood burner fitted last August, and I agree with the comments about being more expensive than gas to run. We use gas for general heating, then the stove is lit around 4/5 pm for the evening.

If you put one/two of these in, they will last for 2-3 hours before you need to fill up again - but you need to close down your vents.

I'll be stocking up.

if you can pick up free wood then obviously cheap!! there's nothing better than a fire at the weekend!

i use window frames from double glazing friend, cut up pallets, wood from walks, we always take a carrier bag each and stock up, fir-tree pine-cones, home made paper logs, and anything else made of wood. we often stop at skips and ask to take the wood, often they are only too pleased to have extra room in the skip. if not we pay £60 a load of logs for emergencies. You will find loads of visitors if you go ahead as mine say they come to mine for the fire!!!

My tip is to let people know you have a wood burning stove, guy across my street has one and didn't bother to mention it while I took about 3 tonnes of wood to the tip. Now any wood gets left on his doorstep!

Also print out a lot of documents at work, take them home. you look keen and can burn them

There is also a difference between getting hold of hardwood as opposed to softwood. Hardwood burns for much longer whereas with softwood you will be just piling it on every few minutes to keep it going. I have found that coal is a lot more economical than wood anyway and produces more heat that lasts longer. Also these heat logs are more or less for effect only. They produce a large flame but you hardly get any heat off them. We use them in Autumn and Spring when you don't need the heat but it's just nice to have a fire for a couple of hours in the evening.

I use a mix of coal and wood on a multifuel burner so you get the best of both worlds, always look around for free wood and you'll always find some

These logs dont last very long tbh

I SAW these at 99p store today..probally it was just 2.

Thanks for the responses guys

we get these for Center Parcs all the time. I pay around £1 for pack of 2 in Home Bargains (£5 for pack of 2 at Center Parcs).

Just thought I'd ask - and try to keep on topic - how well do these burn? It's my understanding that these are compressed wood shavings, don't they fall apart whilst burning? I haven't had a proper log fire burning in our hearth in over 15 years now, I do miss the ambiance, but not the cleaning! Last holiday (without the kids) had a proper inglenook fireplace and all the logs you could burn - ah bliss! I'd love to holiday @ Centre Parcs - but I find it hard to justify the cost (I could get to DisneyLand Paris for a similar outlay!)
r40 - you seem to have it lucky - plenty of free wood! Do you use something like this to make your own paper logs? Thats on special atm - perhaps I should post it as a deal!
