Firewood and timber

Hardwick Estate sells its sustainably-managed, naturally-seasoned firewood from September to April.  Local delivery is free but there is a delivery charge of £5 to £10 per load  to everywhere else, depending on distance. Our logs are Ash, and a full load is approximately 2m3. We sell our firewood by the full-or half-load, and can also provide bags of kindling. A stacking service is also available for an extra charge.

Firewood orders can be made to the Estate Office either by phone on 0118 9842955, via email at, or by contacting us via the website contact page.


Our firewood charges for the 2020/21 season are as follows:

Full load £160 / Half load £110 – Kindling £7 per 7kg bag (approx) – Stacking from £30 for a full load – Delivery £5-£10.  (Prices include 5% VAT)

We regret that due to staff being affected by COVID and exceptional demand which has used up our stock much faster than planned, we have taken the difficult decision to stop all further firewood deliveries this season.  We deeply regret disappointing our customers in this way during what has been a difficult time for everyone. 

We sincerely hope that you will continue to support our firewood business when we come back  in September, and we also hope that an alternative supply can be found by everyone for the rest of this winter.

We have a mobile wood mizer and sell small volumes of planked timber at competitive prices to local buyers. All orders must be placed well in advance to allow for seasoning and planking of timber if required. We can also sell whole lengths of cordwood in some cases.

Available timber includes: Western Red Cedar, Douglas fir, Ash, Beech, Larch, Oak and Cherry.
