I love it as the Autumn days begin to draw in as it heralds when work can start in the woods. My thoughts turn to lighting fires in the evenings, but I must have a good supply of dry, well-seasoned wood to burn and this takes a little planning.
Here at Gliffaes, we have two open fires and two wood burning stoves which are lit from pretty much October to April, all day, every day. Which means we burn tons and tons of split logs each year. On the whole, most of this wood has been split by hand, by me, and over the last 20 years, I have become pretty proficient at choosing, splitting and stacking firewood, as well as learning all the tips and hacks to make this job efficient, safe and above all, enjoyable.
You won’t have to buy your split firewood again (either too wet or so dry that it burns in an instant) and you can have the satisfaction of knowing how to use one of man’s most basic tools. Wear your plaid shirt with pride!
Please call us on 01874 730 371 to book or we can prepare a voucher, as a gift, and send it on to you. Payment for the course is required on booking.
Gliffaes will be closed from 20th December until 3rd March.
We have tried to trade through but can’t operate successfully under the current restrictions.
If you have a reservation or meal booking with us we will be in touch with you.
Thank you for your understanding and I hope we shall you in the Spring.
James & Suie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
