Wood is the way to go in my opinion. Also has the ambience to it which gas will never have, as well as the crackling sounds.
Nothing like snuggling up next to a burning fire with a good bottle of wine with your loved one...

Went for closed fire to keep the house clean, it doesn't smell as much, and its safer.
Burning wood only does get expensive, but the trick is to start the fire with wood, and then once going burn a mix of wood & anthracite. The heat generated is far higher, and a 50kilo sack of anthracite lasts me the whole winter practically.

That is literally a ton of wood.
