We have had the most wonderful week staying here! East Cottage has been a complete pleasure to stay in - it is beautifully set out - a real home from home, and using the wood burner and range has been a complete treat! Cragend Farm is set in the most beautiful of settings - we have thoroughly enjoyed exploring Cragside Estate - the dogs have never had so much exercise. Bamburgh Beach, Holy Island and Dunstanburgh Castle, have also been amazing places to visit. A brilliant stay!

Seasoned Logs for sale

Shaun & Lou Renwick are keen to harness the farm's natural resources, using wood to heat their water, to cook with on a wood burning range, and to heat the houses on the Farm. Even if your house is not equipped to totally run on wood there are things you can do to make sure you are using the best quality wood for your fires.

Why use Seasoned Wood?

Seasoned wood is a definition for 'wood drying'. About 5% of the energy of the log is wasted through evaporation and heating the water vapour of damp logs.

Moisture effects the burning process with unburnt hydrocarbons going up the chimney, which can in time create 'sooting' in the chimney, with the possibility of a chimney fire, all of which requires specialist sweeping.

Drying the wood before burning reduces moisture content in the wood before it is used for burning,

Air drying is the most traditional method, and it takes time. usually over and above 2 years! The fire will use less energy to burn the log if the water content is below 20%. Therefore is can give OUT more energy in the form of heat!

Cragend Farm endeavours to provide their customers with the best seasoned wood possible.

if you would like further information on the process of burning wood please contact us and we will be happy to help.
