Heater for v small room

DH now works from home. He's a chilly mortal, and he can't cope with the house at the temp it is. Thing is, it's a long tall London house, and he works in the teeniest room imaginable, and it's INSANE to have the central heating on, just to heat his wee room. (There's no way on earth he'd go round turning off every other radiator btw - simply won't happen.)

So, I think it must be best just to heat his room. It's about 5 x 5 x 10 foot, so really tiny - narrow desk, 1 chair, just space to close the door.

My plan is to get a heater as a Christmas present - but what to go for?

Ideally, I'd like to get something that has a timer and a thermostat, and which can keep the room at (say) 22 degrees at particular times of day.

What do you suggest??

no ideas? I thought this was just the sort of thing ethical livers would know about - how to keep one bit of a house toasty, when the rest isn't being used...

Well I'm not particularly ethical but this came up on active...

I work from home in a small room and use an oil-filled radiator, it has a thermostat but not a timer. But I'm not sure how ethical that is!

mine is like this one, but this has a timer

Perhaps pop this in property/diy instead?

Also I feel his pain! It is horrible working at home in the cold.

Thank you! I'll put it in DIY as well.
