Raby Estate Logs

Raby logs are cut from a locally grown, sustainable resource as part of the long term management of the Estate’s woodlands. All timber is naturally air dried to provide high quality, low moisture content firewood, perfect for log-burning stoves and open fires alike. Seasoned logs are then processed into large builders’ bags for clean and efficient delivery to homes within 15 miles of Staindrop, including in and around Teesdale, Darlington, Barnard Castle, Bishop Auckland, Middleton-in-Teesdale, Spennymoor, Newton Aycliffe, Crook & Ferryhill.

Our hardwood logs are produced from a range of species including beech, ash, sycamore and oak. The species contained within each bag of hardwood logs will vary a little depending on the nature of the woodland from which the timber was cut.

Christmas opening hours for ordering logs:

Closed from: 12 noon, Friday 23rd December 2016.
Office re-opens for orders Tuesday 3rd January 2017.

Efficient Service

We deliver to properties within 15 miles of the Estate yard at Staindrop. For deliveries outside this area, please contact the Estate Office on 01833 660207, to discuss your requirements.

We aim to provide a clean and efficient service by which your logs will be delivered to your home and off loaded in builders’ bags to a point accessible with our crane equipped pickup. The bags can be used for convenient storage and covers can be provided by request.

Logs can be collected from the Estate yard at Staindrop on Fridays only. Pre-payment via the Estates Office will be required.


Hardwood Logs

We supply high quality, hardwood logs in large builders’ bags with the choice of two log lengths, to suit the size of your fire.

Standard logs are approximately 20-25cm (8-10”) in length, being suitable for most log burning, multi-fuel stoves and open fires. Longer logs of approximately 30-35cm (12-14”) are also available for larger grates & stoves.

Softwood Logs

We also supply air-dried, seasoned softwood logs, produced from the thinning of the Estate’s coniferous plantations. Dry softwood provides good heat output, particularly in enclosed stoves and can provide an economical alternative to hardwood. Options of 25cm and 35cm log lengths are available.


To order logs please call the Estates Office on 01833 660207 where major credit and debit cards are accepted.
