Welcome to The Fireplace Basingstoke Ltd!

Our fully trained staff will be happy to help you through the process of picking the right fireplace for you. Why not pop into The Fireplace Basingstoke showroom to see how we can help with the supply and full installation of Stoves, Gas and Electric Fire and Fireplaces.

Fireplaces are in the family!

The Fireplace is a family-run business in Basingstoke featuring a team with over 50 years of experience in the trade. Along with a stylish new showroom and unbeatable prices, customers will get a warm welcome. We are located in the Kings Furlong Centre, Wessex Close, we offer a massive selection of stoves and fireplaces to suit all types of fire, including gas, electric and solid fuel. Styles range from traditional to ultra-modern, in stone, wood, metal and other materials.

Brothers Bradley, Damian and Hayden Gowan have teamed up with Damian's father-in-law Alan French to set up The Fireplace, while Damian's wife Vicky Looks after the showroom. The brothers saw a niche in the market in which, as fully qualified and experienced installers, they could give far better advice to customers than any salesman. The new business allows them to get involved in all aspects of fireplace installation, from initial sales through to the satisfactory completion of each job.

Damian Says "People are always claiming to 'cut out the middle man' but that's the real situation here. Alan, Bradley and myself are all very experienced fitters who know all the pit-falls of the trade and we have found our down-to-earth sales approach with customers has gone down very well"

Our Fireplace team can give expert advice on everything, from simple fire surrounds to specialist features such as flexible flue linings, complete chimney systems and bespoke designs. As well as our installers being Gas Safe registered, Hetas trained and expert bricklayers.

We will have a different special offer every month, so visit the showroom to choose a stylish way to keep warm.
