The knowledge and skills developed over more than a century and a half, go into everything we do and ESSE range cookers and stoves are hand built to last a lifetime – just ask one ESSE owner, whose cast iron ESSE range cooker has been in continuous daily use since 1920!

The warm heart of the home for 165 years

Heating trends have evolved since 1854, when the first ESSE stoves were sold, yet we still believe the deep, room-filling warmth of a stove remains the cosiest way to heat your home. Although ESSE products maintain the look and feel of traditional stoves, the technology and innovation that underpins these craftsmen-built products is very definitely 21st century.

An ESSE stove creates a focal point at the heart of the home filling the entire space with radiant, welcoming warmth and, we’d like to think, your heart with joy!

Thanks Kings Worthy Foundry for a great experience testing the Fuego wood fired oven yesterday. Your staff were really helpful and friendly and your shop is a real Aladdin's cave of wonderful products.

We are delighted with our finished result, a stunning Arc 5 and it has made our house really feel like a home. It has been a brilliant experience and we will become familiar faces popping in for the care bits you need to keep it happy and healthy! Thank you for your friendly service and for helping us make one of the best decisions we have ever made.

Katie

Massive thank you... We had 3 man team to deliver a large fireback. Spent a good hour on site making sure no flooring or anything else was damaged. Really nice guys and they genuinely cared about making sure nothing got damaged and weren't going to rush it despite being late in the day. Both the fireback and the service to go with it was worth every penny.

Giles

I wanted to drop you a note to say how delighted we are with the Girse. It has pride of place on the new terrace. As always, terrific service from the Kingsworthy Foundry team, with the additional touches that makes dealing with you a cut above anyone else. Coming home on Friday evening to find the fire set and ready to go, complete with a brush and kiln dried logs was a surprise and a delight ! Many thanks. Regards, James

James

"Thank you for your excellent advice and we would certainly recommend yourselves for a complete stove solution."

Mark

Such a great shop for all things for the wood burner. They can guide you through the choices and are not about the most expensive but what will work for you. And their after service is excellent too.

Bridget

I found the service and knowledge fantastic and it was a pleasure buying my first ever woodburner. I could not recommend the Foundry more and will be returning to buy more

Aaron

The service, support and quality at Kingsworthy Foundry is just exceptional. I have used them for a number of years and had reason to visit for support twice in the last week - nothing short of brilliant.

Ian

I found this place on Google, and it really is an Aladdins Cave. They have so much stock and had exactly what I wanted. Mentally, I've spent about 6 months salary!
I'd definitely recommend this to anyone.

Andy

Very knowledgable staff and extremely helpful from our first visit to their showroom through to lighting our first fire in our wood burner. Would highly recommend.

Jez

very professional service throughout, showroom staff were all polite and helpful, the fitters were very efficient and left no mess whatsoever, we were very impressed.

Stephen

Really excellent, if we ever do this again I think we'd definitely go for Kings Worthy Foundry. Do note though it seems the on-site installation team are powered by chocolate biscuits, so make sure you have enough in the cupboard and KitKats if they have to work on Saturdays.
