The weather is beginning to cool – or, in the case of our West Yorkshire Mill, was never particularly warm in the first place – and people are starting on the process of dusting stoves, sweeping chimneys and unclogging flues for the season of warming fireplaces. With a unique range of exclusive accessories in the Dibor warehouse, it’s little wonder that we’re the first stop for many who seek those romantic evenings by the fireside.
So, before we start pushing our imminent winter’s range, we feel it’s only right to give you all some time to relax in front of burning coals. Sit back; take solace in the safeguard from the bite of rain and pour yourself a glass. Who cares if it’s Monday?

A beautifully majestic companion for any fireplace, this wonderful piece is complete with a spark protecting mesh - ideal for protecting the kids, pets and carpet. This classical item can be yours for only £189.
Of course, a fireside companion set is a must; but as living rooms get busier (and your mantelpiece may be filling with stockings in only a couple of months), we think it’s only right to provide a more compact option for your poker, tongs, shovel and brush. Our Wall Mounted Companion Set matches with any fireguard easily, represents superb value at only £34.95, and fits to the wall with only two screws. Each tool is machined in the traditional way to a superb standard.

This beautiful log caddy is only £69.00 – a superb value addition to your home.
Finally, it’s time to light the fire. Our unique match canisters are made to the same superb quality as our coal buckets; and come with fifty long stem matches, too. At only £14.95, these are a perfect little accessory for BBQs, firepits, chimneas and even the kitchen. Safer lighting, longer burning and a perfect start for a warm, rustic, country style atmosphere that anybody can appreciate.
And now, give this a try; the first of our luxurious winter drink recipes. They’re not just for Christmas, you know! We guarantee there’s no better beverage for a cold winter evening. Just don’t overdo it! (it is only Monday! - and remember to serve them hot!)
It’s impossible to be stressed with that in your hand. Give it a go, and let us know what you think!
