About us.

Austin Kelso & Sons operates out of the family farm which is at the foot of Mell and Little Mell Fell near Matterdale.  

The Business was established in the early 1950’s by Austin Kelso who was a time served Plumbing and Heating Engineer, two of his sons Martin & Richard joined the family firm after leaving school and they have 38 and 34 years of experience in all aspects of the trade.

The firm regularly installed solid fuel central heating appliances and they found that these appliances were nearly always supplied by companies and or individuals who had little or no experience in the trade and non were able to assist when problems or questions arose.

The Family Firm decided that there was an opportunity to establish a specialist wood burning stove business and they converted one of the redundant farm buildings into a showroom where they display stoves for sale.

The Business has grown over the years and the firm now have over 50 stoves on display with 4 live appliances, the firm holds trade accounts with nearly all the major stove manufacturers.

After Austin’s retirement a new limited company was formed with three partners, Martin and Richard who carry out the installations and Jill who is Martins wife, she looks after the showroom and administration side of the business.
