About Us

Established in 1988 by Gordon and Sue Bennett, the team at Bentley Fire Shop have over 25 years of supplying, installing and servicing a range of heating appliances. Initially, the family company was set up as a plumbing and heating business, but soon diversified into wood burning stoves. Following fast growth, Gordon and Sue set up a small showroom in Plough Road Business Centre, Great Bentley, after which followed 20 years of increasing success. This culminated in the company moving to a larger, more prominent building at the head of the Centre, in 2011.

With the additional space of the new showroom, Bentley has built on its reputation for its extensive range of wood burning and multi-fuel stoves. Currently, the showroom features over 50 stoves, while also boasting an array of fireplaces and fires. In addition to the wood burning stoves, Rayburn range cookers are displayed within stunning bespoke wood kitchens by Designs In Wood – a Brightlingsea-based company owned and run by Sue’s sister Rebecca and her husband James.

In 2009, Gordon and Sue met with USA-based manufacturers Central Boiler, to discuss the distribution of the RHI eligible E-Classic range of outdoor wood gasification boilers. This struck a successful relationship, where Bentley now has exclusive rights to the distribution of the products in the UK, with a dedicated network of dealers and installers throughout the country.

We pride ourselves on the high quality service we provide both our customers and suppliers, and this is reflected by the long standing relationships we have with leading manufacturers in our industry. Combined with steady growth over the years, we are now one of the leading retailers in East Anglia, with one of the largest selection of heating products. To ensure we provide customers with highest level of technical expertise, our engineers are OFTEC, Gas Safe, and HETAS registered, while we are also members of the Rayburn Guild.

We have a team of qualified heating and plumbing engineers who can provide you with full central heating installation, alterations, boiler replacement, plumbing requirements and general maintenance and servicing of heating systems and appliances.

So, whether you are looking for a new woodburner, a limestone fireplace, or a sustainable biomass heating system, the team at Bentley Fire Shop can help.
