Review of Aarrow Acorn 4 Stove

Small but HOT

Antony McDonnell 10 years ago

Very happy with this stove , its fitted with a boiler so heats my water but is not big enough for central heating ....I have a one bed house and that's all the heating I have. With sea coal and wood on the beach here in Northumberland I don't have to pay for any fuel but you do have to collect it? Build quality very good and will stay in all night with coal if heaped up in the stove and controls set to just above minimum. Beat the fuel costs and fit a stove but do read the reviews and get a good one. I did a lot of the work myself fitting the stove and only had a plumber in for 3 hours so not as expensive as you may imagine, did not need to line the chimney as the original 1875 chimney was in good repair\n\n

Stove expert replied: Do watch the salt in the fuel and insure that it is dry. Probably not the best fuel to use!!
