House Coal

Traditional Bituminous Mined Coal

**As of Feb 2021 all pre-packed (25kg) house coal sales will be banned**

Due to government legislation it will be illegal to sell  bituminous house coal in plastic bags.

However, Approved Coal Merchants such as us, will be able to continue to sell this fuel by delivering it to your house in our 50kg open sacks to be tipped into a bunker or storage area.


House Coal is what many think of as “proper” coal. It is either deep mined or more commonly now is open cast. We generally stock house coal from Scotland due to the last English mine being closed in 2015.

Burning Characteristics

Due to it’s high soot output it isn’t suitable for Multi Fuel Stoves and should only be burnt on open fires. Should not be used in Smokeless Controlled zones


House Coal comes in three main sizes:

House Coal Doubles

The smallest size of house coal. This will light easily and produce a large amount of heat but for a relatively short period of time. We tend to recommend this as a budget alternative to the other fuels.

Medium House Coal

The most popular of the house coals that we sell. This is due to its size being suitable for most open fires and will therefore last longer and work out more economic.

Large House Coal

This is for large open fires. We normally supply this to country pubs and even steam engines!
