When you want to create a cosy interior with a clean, efficient burn that complies with all the new rules on Ecodesign 2022, the Churchill 5 from Mendip Stoves, which comes in three different configurations all at 5kW, is the perfect choice. The impressive curved door, which is made from cast iron, features a large viewing window and dual air control. This gives users even greater control over the primary and secondary air intake. Ideal for making a focal point in any space, the Churchill 5 can fit into an inglenook fireplace or stand alone in the room to make a lasting first impression.
Churchill 5 Dual Control
A+ rated for energy efficiency, it offers multi-fuel burning, closed combustion for better efficiency and a contemporary freestanding design that complements all decors and property styles. The floor-standing model measures H614mm x W505mm x D388mm and is suitable for smoke control areas too, making it ideal for city dwellings.
Churchill 5 Convection Dual Control
With its clean-lined contemporary design, which suits both modern and traditional interiors, the stove comes with or without a log store for convenience. It’s also 12mm floor plate compatible and has a convection top plate.

The Churchill 5 Convection Dual Control features contemporary curved convection panels which lower the distance to combustibles to the sides of the stove to 150mm, making it perfect for open-plan living.
Chris Baines, MD of Eurostove, comments: “Mendip Stoves has a wide range of Ecodesign and Defra approved models that meet the emissions and minimum efficiency criteria of the new legislation, reducing particle matter emissions by burning wood more efficiently. Burning fuel more efficiently gives a clean environment in which to spend time in. We are proud to do our part in helping the planet and help consumers make the right choice for both their home and the environment.”
An Ecodesign-compliant wood burner produces up to 90% fewer emissions than an open fire and up to 80% less than a stove manufactured over 10 years ago.
“When choosing a new stove,” adds Chris, “it must ‘fit’ the room in terms of heat output. As a general rule, work out the cubic metre capacity of the room and divide by 14. This gives the ideal minimum heat output required in kW. However, for modern and well-insulated homes it is probably more accurate to divide by 20. One must also make sure that the distance to combustibles is observed, as individual stoves may have very different space requirements around the stove itself. Finally, do ensure that the stove is professionally installed by a HETAS registered engineer. Not only is this the safe choice but your home insurance may be invalid if not.”
