How our open fires look and the comfort they bring to any gathering is our passion. Ensuring they work and comply with current regulations so you, your family and your home are safe is our top priority. Our fireplace ideas are driven by you as our customer, as we work alongside you and your ideas and desires to create your perfect fireplace.
Everything we create is designed and made by our team here in Worcestershire, so we are close knit and strongly invested in our business.
Fireplaces in the UK feature traditional canopies, fire grates and dog irons, that create the perfect, relaxing atmosphere in your home. However, whether your open fire ideas are traditional or contemporary, with a Camelot creation you can be assured of its pedigree.

Browse the fires we have created for our customers as inspiration for your ideas on the right open fire for your home. Many of our fires are made to order so if we can make it, you can have it.

Our craft is a mix of the latest design and technology from laser cutters through to hand forming sheet steel for canopies or hand forging and casting for grate fronts and dog irons.. We are a very modern 2nd generation family business with real heritage in open fires, something that encourages our business to be the best it can be, as we are so invested in our businesses potential.


” When we renovated our listed thatched cottage, we decided on installing a Camelot Thermovent open fire and canopy in our dining room, and a woodburner in our lounge. We are absolutely delighted with everything that Paul and the team did for us, particularly the Thermovent which burns and draws beautifully with no smoke in the room, provides plenty of warmth and has really brought our inglenook to life. We must also commend the Crown team on the determination and ingenuity when installing the insulated flues, as one was particularly challenging. The quality and workmanship all round is excellent. We heartily recommend them!”

If you want to influence your fires design we can make this happen through our design service. We can carry it out remotely or through one of our show & survey visits where we visit you with an example canopy and fire along with a survey of your fireplace. This is a paid for service with credits against orders that are confirmed which many customers choose to take advantage of.
Tell us what you would like and, alongside a survey of your fireplace, we’ll visualise your fire for you before you decide to go ahead.

“Having grown up living next door to the Blacksmiths Shop whilst dad designed and made open fires for his customers it felt like the natural thing to do to pick up when he stopped.
I love sharing our passion and enthusiasm of our customers as they build,
