2. Three-bedroom detached house in Winforton, Herefordshire, for £385,000
A feature fireplace with a log burner is a must-have in any country home – and that includes new-builds like this detached cottage in Herefordshire. There won’t be any trouble getting the rest of the property toasty either, thanks to underfloor heating on the ground floor.

3. Seven-bedroom detached house in Coombe, Kingston Upon Thames, for £5.25m
We love this stylish gas fire in the family room of this newly-built seven-bedroom mansion. The home’s price tag of more than £5m however, is likely to burn a bigger hole in your bank account.

4. Four-bedroom detached house in Matfield, Kent, for £725,000
Thorn House is a quintessentially English cottage and in the dining room you’ll find a huge inglenook fireplace which still has its original bread oven. A further two fireplaces can be found in the entrance hall and the sitting room, so you’ll be spoiled for choice.

5. Five-bedroom detached house in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, for £6.25m
This incredible Grade II-listed Tudor mansion is as impressive inside as it is out. And among its many period features is a 16th century carved stone fireplace. It sits at the heart of the oak panelled drawing room – the ideal spot for a cosy Christmas.

6. Seven-bedroom house in Netheravon, Wiltshire, for £1.6m
The number of fireplaces in this elegant 18th century Wiltshire home serves as a reminder of how essential they would have been to everyday life ‘pre-central heating’. But even with the modern addition of underfloor heating throughout the property, there’s still nothing quite like crackling open fire in your own bedroom.
