Need advice connecting solid fuel stove to existing ch system

    I would like to hook up my solid fuel stove to the existing ch system.

    The problem is that stove is a long way from the boiler so connecting them via a hydraulic separator before hooking up to the heating circuit is difficult and would also require a lot of work to keep the pipes hidden.

    A gravity system is only really possible by adding a tank in a cupboard behind and to the left of the stove but even if a tank is put in this cupboard connecting it to the existing ch system is still the issue.

    In that cupboard there is access to the ch circuit at the point where the flow becomes the return (28mm pipes). Running new pipes from this cupboard is difficult, so what I am wondering is if there is any way around this. There is also a 3/4 pipe here that is currently unused.

    If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them. I don't have a lot of money to do this, so I am looking for a simple and inexpensive solution that will work.

    I have some pipe, fittings, a spare fixed speed pump, a old hot water cylinder (80 litre), and a motorised valve.

    Safety is always a priority.

    Attached is a pic of the system as of now.
