Woodburner /Fire instructions
The pellets for the burner are stored in the small box next to the burner. To refill, simply open the hatch at the top. There is a spare bag in the garden storage box by the front parking area. If you hear beeping noise, the burner needs to be refilled with pellets and ideally turned off and on again. There is an instruction manual for the burner in the kitchen cupboard. We recommend switching the burner off when you go out or turn in for the night.
