Don't leave it too late...

We've had some wonderful weather over the last month, but it seems that finally the autumn chill has arrived - and people are starting to think about fireplaces and stoves again.  We've got the stove burning in the shop today, and it's a great hit with everyone who comes in and sees how lovely and warming a stove can be.  We always find that with the first colder weather, we start to get busier - and the fitters start to get longer waiting times.

There's still plenty of time to get your stove or fire in time for Christmas, but please don't leave it too late.  We can order stock in right up until the last minute, but you want your fire or stove fitted and working - and our fireplace fitters won't be able to fit without at least a few weeks notice.

Do come and visit us at Westcombes sooner rather than later if you're thinking about a fire or stove - and then we can make sure that you're ready for a very cosy winter!

The latest additions to the Westcombes family...

We promised to let you know when the new arrivals for our window display were here - and we're delighted to present Freddy and Felix!  They joined us last week and are living very happily in Westcombes window, lying contentedly next to the stove.  We've already noticed lots of people stopping to peer at them to check whether they're real (and have had some banging on the window trying to wake them up which isn't so good!).

Seasonal Sunday opening

Westcombes is now open on Sundays!

As this is our busiest time of year, we're extending our opening hours for the autumn through until December. It's not too late to get that fire or stove for Christmas, and you'll find us here between 12 and 4 every Sunday as well as our normal opening hours of 10am to 6pm Monday through to Saturday.
