Stone hearths

We are able to cut and carve stone hearths to your size requirements. If you already have your carpet/wooden floor cut out, and would like a hearth to fit, then simply measure this area and we will be able to cut to your specific size requirements.

The height of the stone hearth as standard is 50mm, the height can be increased if required, and reduced down to 40mm is the minimum we would recommend unless stated.  Please contact us with your sizes for a personal quotation.

As you will see the most of the hearths are in three sections we feel this is more pleasing to the eye than a two piece hearth but it is your choice, we will keep the joints tight and supply the mortar which consists of dust from the stone and natural lime for the pointing of the joints. We will not supply a hearth larger than 850mm x 450mm x 50mm in one piece. 

You can choose plain, square edged hearths, chamfered hearths, or perhaps bullnosed hearths.  Please see designs available, or forward your own design for costings to simplicityfireplaces@gmail.com

All our hearths are carved from solid boulders of natural English Bath stone using 8 foot diamond blades under a water wheel this helps prolong the life of the blades and keeps the stone dust down but does satuarate the stone hearth sections, hence timescales of normally around 3-3.5 weeks from placing order/funds to hearths arriving on a pallet at the property address or collecting from our workshop in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire Monday to Fridays 10-2pm , as the stone needs air drying time before any cleaning/carving of the stone can commence.  If you are local to Stroud we will deliver your hearths personally. 

As the hearths are cut from a natural material over 145 million years old, so can contain calcite veins, sea shells/creatures/fossils all within the stone, this is the beauty of natural stone. No two hearths are the same. 

We are able to offer a fitting service if you reside within 20 miles of Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, please contact us for timescales and fitting costs.

Delivery will be by a pallet lorry of upto 18 tonnes on a kerbside signed for delivery, Monday to Friday on a previously agreed day and must be checked ideally upon receipt if not then must be within 24 hours of receipt, unless local to ourselves for which we would deliver personally.
