Welcome to Lakeland Fireplaces and Lighting


With over three decades of experience, we understand that the fireplace is both a central feature and an important heat source in your home. Fireplaces, stoves and fires need replacing with the minimum of fuss assisted by expert advice and installation by local professionals.

Operating throughout the Cumbria, Lancashire and North Yorkshire region, we are authorised agents for leading stove, fireplace and gas and electric fire manufacturers.  As the area’s only officially-appointed dealership for Esse cookers and stoves, we offer showroom demonstrations of Esse range cookers and a live display of Esse’s legendary multi-fuel stoves which we also stock in a wide range of wood-burning, electric and gas options.  Our high-street showrooms in Kendal display a comprehensive range of period, antique-reproduction and modern fireplaces and stoves to suit any property.  We pride ourselves not only in our expert knowledge and attention to detail but also in our helpful and friendly staff who aim to ensure the best customer experience.

In addition to our design service, we also arrange for the installation of the fireplaces, stoves and cookers which we supply, together with chimney relining, by HETAS registered engineers.  Having suffered from flooding in our business premises and in our home in 2012, the staff at Lakeland Fireplaces and Lighting, fully understand the devastating impact that flooding can have on day-to-day life.  We have extensive experience in assisting householders, contractors and insurance companies with flood recovery; re-instating fireplaces, stoves and fires in Kendal, Carlisle, Keswick, Appleby and Lancaster, following similar flooding over the last decade.  Lakeland Fireplaces offers free insurance quotations, expertly valued on a like-for-like basis.  We also offer free site survey and free project management for replacement fireplaces, stoves and appliances and are available for consultation on flood refurbishment to insurance companies and project managing contractors.

Our showrooms also offer the area’s widest selection of home lighting, from antique crystal chandeliers, sourced throughout Europe, to the latest technology in LED lighting solutions from leading manufacturers. With hundreds of lights displayed over three floors, we aim to offer lights to suit every home and taste.
