ARADA STOVES

Surrounding landscape of Axminster in Autumn


WE BELIEVE THAT ‘BRITISH MADE’ IS MORE THAN JUST A BADGE

It’s been over 40 years since we started warming homes and hearts, but from day one, our stoves have had the authenticity you’d expect from a company rooted in rural Devon. The names "Villager", "Aarrow" and "Stratford" have all stood the test of time and are now united under the Arada brand.

So choose a stove that is perfectly designed for the British home and way of life.


WE BELIEVE OUR REPUTATION IS BUILT ON EVERY STOVE WE MAKE

Arada Manufacturing

Each Arada stove starts life in the hands of our craftsmen.

Raw steel is crafted with precision. Exacting joins are welded at 1500°C. Sparks fly as surfaces are perfected.

Your stove emerges, bearing all the hallmarks of being designed, engineered and built in Britain by people who take pride in a job well done.


OUR HERITAGE

A BRIEF HISTORY OF ARADA STOVES


We've been proudly producing wood and multi fuel stoves for a long time.

From modest beginnings to building up an experienced team of engineers, designers and fabricators producing domestic heating products for the UK and worldwide. We have been based at our Axminster site for almost two decades, but our company history actually goes back over half a century.>

Today, we design, manufacture and distribute wood, multi-fuel, gas and electric stoves / fires.

Our focus is on the production and supply of the most desirable, efficient and lowest emission heating appliances to complement any cosy home.

Our stoves are available for purchase through our wide network of UK retailers or via our distributors in Ireland, Europe, North America, Canada, Japan and more.
