Looking for the perfect companion?

Manor companion set from DirectFireplaces | H is for Home

Even though it’s been a relatively mild winter, our wood-burning stoves have been chuffing away for months. They produce enough heat to make a room comfortable without needing to put the central heating on. And, on really chilly days, they just give things a boost. A real fire also brings a room to life – flickering and crackling away, becoming the focal point. We couldn’t be without ours!

The three versions of the Manor companion set available at DirectFireplaces

It’s essential that a real fire has some fireside tools, so we’re pleased to be able to offer one of our readers a Manor companion set from DirectFireplaces. The set comprises dust pan, brush, log roller and pair of tongs on a metal stand. It’s available in 3 different finishes – black, black/pewter and black/brass. Because of its classic styling, it would look great in either a traditional or modern room.

To enter, just tell us in the comments section at the bottom of this page who or what is your perfect fireside companion. Very best of luck!

    Sitting together with the fire burning bright,
    Looking outside the window in the dark of the night,
    My husband is my perfect companion,
    as we love to see Nocturnal animals came
    out to play,
    Foxes seeing people always run away,
    I see owners pulled by dogs in a line,
    And their barking midst the passing of time.
