    Depending on the distance from the stove, over 1m should be OK unless very enclosed.
    The cables should be selected for a higher ambient temperature and rated accordingly, but otherwise should be unaffected (unless the ceiling burns!)
    LED lights may well not like the higher temperature and have a reduced life, in this case I might recommend halogen spots as they will be OK.

    If there is room, I would move the spot away from the direct heat source and use a gimbal fitting to illuminate the area.
