hidden Gems in stove

As you arrive, the host who meets you is likely to be based at desk made from a large tree trunk and opposite is a table made from slate and wood. Both these pieces and many more have been created by hand locally by John Purcell. John's been making furniture for over 35 years and has worked on other projects for Langdale and Brimstone.

Based locally, John selected the wood and slate specifically for Stove, including the Silver Birch that sits along top of the low internal walls. The round table tops which are Monkey Puzzle Tree, are from a forest in Sedbergh which is less than 30 miles from Brimstone.

The slate in Stove comes from the Burlington quarry in Elterwater no more than 200 metres from where it is now in the restaurant. Slate has been extracted here since the middle of the 19th Century and the current operation can be seen by taking a walk along the footpath on the opposite side of the river to the Langdale Estate heading up the valley from Elterwater.
