Can I run an oil fired range and central heating wood burning stove in one house?

Hi there, we are currently trying to get house plans together for a new build. We are going to have an oil fired range in the house which is going to be something like this http://www.rayburn-web.co.uk/57_204.htm (cooking and heating all in one job) which can use a timer or be turned on at the flick of a switch to heat the house after work say (quick easy and convenient) and I also thinking of putting in a solid fuel central heating system to do a few radiators in the house (these models can do up to 20 rads) http://www.stovesonline.co.uk/wood_burning_stoves/Stratford-boiler-stoves.html which we could use at the weekend when we have more time - have the heating zoned, use the range to heat upstairs before we head to bed and have the wood burner on doing the downstairs radiators. Is this possible to achieve both systems contributing to the one central system? I want to try and be as green as possible and have less reliance on the oil if possible? Any pointers you have on this would be great. Thanks

Yes,Raeburn and other makes including Aga, and other stove are available they are what are known as "Multifuel" You can also fit electrically operated one way valves to switch from one system to another.
