  • Perhaps needs another 1000 or so years design work?

    Don''t get me wrong... once this fire is up to temperature I''m in love with it. But there are so many basic design flaws that it''s hard to rate it highly. The manufacturers advertising ramble... []

    Stove expert replied: The stove will have been thoroughly tested before going to market, so the holes that are referred to should not become blocked during normal usage.

  • Great stove

    Nick Sellers 2 years ago

    Had a couple of Holywell stoves so when we moved to a house with a huge living room Burley was the obvious choice. The wakerley is great. Lights well but takes a few minutes to get hold. This is probably as the flue is a tad short though. Overall great and chucks out loads of heat and quite efficient... []

    We've had this stove for under a year after moving into an big old house- we replaced a Rayburn oil cooker with this. We deliberated a long time about the make & size we wanted but as we had... []

    Stove expert replied: The flue draw seems to be the problem from what you say and this is not the stoves fault! Is there an air brick in the room? Are there other flues in the property that may have a stronger draw that is affecting this one? Have you an anti-downdraught cowl fitted? Is the chimney lined? What height is the flue system? As the draw improves when the flue is warm this shows the flue is the problem. Wood burning stoves are not recommended for use over-night, the slow burning period produces too many tar residues and can lead to chimney problems. Do get the installation checked as the problems outlined should be able to be improved on.

    I have had my Burley Wakerley since Sept 2014. Originally I wanted a Clearview 750 but the installer said that was not ideal due to the diameter of the chimney/flue so I went with his recommendation... []

    Stove expert replied: Please make sure that monthly the stove is let out and thoroughly cleaned insuring that the flue is clear, slumbering the stove leads to more debris being produced and leaving so long without checking is not good practise.
