Review of Charnwood Country 12 stove

Country 12

Deborah 6 years ago

Have had the Country 12 for two years, and it is excellent, but let down by the throat plate. It is difficult to lodge into its precarious position and does drop occasionally into the fire. If this design could be modified I would say this wood burning stove is perfect. It lights easily (depending on the weather)and will usually stay in overnight, with all the air vents practically closed, then will flair up in the morning when they are reopened. It belts out lovely heat which goes way beyond the large sitting room where it is situated. My ratings would all be 5 if the throat plate was improved.

Stove expert replied: It is a shame for one thing to let a stove down which seems the case with this stove and this review.
