Why Buy from Ignition?

Ignition Fires (formerly Dorking Stoves and Guildford Stoves) is a long established, privately owned and run specialist in the field of Fires and Stoves.

We’ve been supplying and installing stoves and fireplaces around the local area for more than 40 years. When some people say 20 years experience they are adding up concurrent years, or experience gained with another firm.  Or all the owners put together.  When we say it we mean that the business started out in Dorking in the 1970’s

We’ve collected together a superb selection of brands and products into one place so you can see a really strong portfolio of products – the market leaders.

We know what we’re doing. We’ve made some mistakes along the way – when you’ve been doing something as long as we have then you can’t help but to learn.  We try to learn everyday, and we improve through our experience.

When you look around for a supplier for your next fire take a look at our virtual tour, come and see us and talk to us – we don’t pressure sell, we just like fires and fireplaces.


Visit Our Stove and Fireplace Showrooms

We would love to see you at one of our showrooms The Cranleigh showroom is our main HQ and as such has a much better display. Our Holmwood showroom is open for unaccompanied viewing whenever the Emporium is open. It is staffed for technical advice by appointment. That said we try to have someone at Holmwood most days from 3 pm and all day on Saturdays, but if you want to talk fires then it is best to make an appointment or come down to Cranleigh. The Emporium closes for lunch from 12:00 till 12:30 on weekdays and Saturdays, and 13:00 till 13:30 on Sundays and Bank Holidays.


A large superstore at Cranleigh with many live burning displays – 10,000 square feet of Stoves, Fireplaces and Gas fires. Full technical advice is available here.
