Charcoal. Make it sustainable

Our charcoal is locally sourced from Ben, a woodsman at Eggardon, West Dorset. Each bag is a blend of oak, ash, hazel, beech, maple and thorn that heats up quickly and lights easily.

A match, some newspaper and you’re ready to cook.

Pull up a chair

Whether it’s watching the sunset or chilling over the weekend, a comfy (and stylish) outdoor chair is your summertime best buddy. From rocking chairs to shared chairs, discover more of our range below and here.

Unexpected guests may drop by but you’ll never be short on hospitality or room with a bench seat. You can even have one custom made in our workshop.
