  • Clean and easy to use

    Robert Smith 6 years ago

    I have two burners. This one and a Stovax Stockton 6, also a good burner. Accept maybe on efficiency, the Country 6 wins on everything else. Looks great, easy to clean, good air wash, handle
    doesn't get too hot and large firebox. If it fits, buy it!

  • smell from top of stove

    Brendan Merrigan 13 years ago

    I have this model for 4 years, has worked well during that time except for this year. I used cut up varnished floorboards at the start of this winter, used in maybe 2-3 fires until i noticed
    a bad smell from the stove. The stove got very hot during this time. I have since used the stove approx 10 times and the smell is persisting. I have changed the fuel from house coal to smokeless coal with no positive results. The chimney has been swept twice and all joints sealed. No smoke in firebox.Stove expert update: with help from Whatstove and the manufacturer the problem has been solved. The solution was rubbing the top of the stove down and respraying (supplied by manufacturer). Very occasionally the paint from a stove can carry on smelling after the first firings. The usual solution is to burn the stove hard for several hours. This did not work in this case and so rubbing down worked. It may either have been the paint or it could have been some other substance which got onto the top of the stove. The smell has now gone.

  • Tremendous Service

    Nick Gardner 6 years ago

    This little log burner has given our family tremendous service for over 25 years!!! All I have done is change the fire cheeks twice and the rope around the glass once. This year I decided to
    ask a local guy to give it an overhaul, that cost me £200.00 and after the re-spray it looks as good as new. Great little log burner!!

    Stove expert replied: Wow, great service and the cost of refurbishing if you break it down to the length of service seems money well spent.

  • Impressive stove

    Robert Barton 10 years ago

    We removed a Country 4 which to be honest I did not rate but fitted Country 6 after widening the fire place. I am very impressed with it, we have to run it on low most of the time due to the
    heat it pushes out. Door glass self cleans very easily. Uses minimal fuel. Would definitely recommend. My only issue is the door latch as it gets very easy to open when hot.

  • Great Stove

    Darryl Hall 10 years ago

    I got in to the world of stoves a few years ago due to having a back boiler replaced which had an integrated fire so needed to replace that too.I initially opted for the easy option and got
    an inset stove which I ran for a season but really wasn't up to the job so got the builders in to enlarge my fireplace and install one of the Charnwood Country 6's.I spent quite a lot of time looking into stoves, both online and in the local shops. I did see a couple of Chesneys that had the "modern" look and initially quite fancied one of them but reviews weren't all that great. When I saw the Country 6, although a more "traditional" stove I really liked the twin angled doors and build quality. I looked at previous reviews on here and other sites and it seems that this make and model have quite a following so in the end made the decision to buy.I had the fire installed at the beginning of the year so with the extended winter used it quite a lot then and am using it fairly often at the moment too and I absolutely love it. My Sister also recently had one installed in their house due to how good it looks. What a difference to my old DImplex inset - the fire is more controllable, the glass almost always stays clean even when the top air is virtually closed. The only time the glass does significantly black up is when I load it up at night and turn the air down to keep the fire in until Morning. This is really effective and although the glass is quite black in the morning, as it's still going, I chuck on a couple more logs, open both the vents to get the fire roaring which then also cleans off the glass.Another attraction for me to this stove is that it takes 40+cm logs which is great as there is less work cutting wood to length and you get better value for money out of the wood burning bigger logs a they burn for longer.I got the multifuel version, which the only difference is it comes with a grate kit which you put in yourself. I only paid extra for this as I assumed I would need to put coal on if I wanted to keep the fire going all night, but so far I've not had to as the air is sufficiently controlled and the firebox big enough to keep it going with wood, which I much prefer as it's more friendly to the environment.I would not hesitate in recommending this stove to anyone. The quality is great and also I had a few queries prior to purchase so I emailed Charnwood direct and had a very helpful and informative answer within a few hours.The only downside is because you have a "tool" to open and close the door opening knobs this soon wears off the paint on the little door knobs, but still doesn't detract anything from the stove. I did however mention this by email to the Charnwood dealer shortly after purchase and a week later I have a very large tin of Charnwood touch up paint for the knobs, again another example of excellent customer service.

  • Charnwood country 6

    Pat Hart 12 years ago

    Excellent stove - doors do not black up - air-wash works well, very efficient burning of both coal and wood. Have had this stove in for about four years now and it hasn't let me down. Would
    definitely recommend this make and model.

    Stove expert replied: Wow, top marks. Nothing more to say on this outstanding feedback.

  • Old Charnwood County 6

    John 12 years ago

    Thought I would leave a review of my old stove before I buy a new one. We have had the stove for almost 14 years now, in that time we have replaced the fire bricks once and the throat plate
    once. Although these will need to be done again by the new owner (still serviceable). We have experienced problems with door seals on a regular basis. Easily fixed and not difficult to do. We have found the stove to be fairly controllable, but due to exposed position of the property it varies on the amount of wind outside. The stove has the drop in coal grate, currently on the second on of those but it has had little use as wood is our preferred fuel of choice. I have not had many problems lighting the stove. Only on the odd occasion has it failed to light, wet kindling damp paper.... So hardly the stoves fault. It is easy to use and the air wash is effective, not so good with damp fuel. Again nothing to do with the stove. The stove is quite controllable, depends on the state of the rope door seals. Easy to operate and with a large fire box which can accommodate a large log. Will burn overnight without too many failures. Just rake over the embers bit of kindling and off it goes. Good stove all round.

    Stove expert replied: Old timer but does what it needs to!! The key to the prolonged life is maintenance!!

  • Country 6 Stove in Almond colour

    Barry Peppiatt 15 years ago

    We are very disappointed with the Almond colour finish , we thought that it would be more like the normal enamelled finish as seen on most colour finished stoves, the Charnwood finish is very
    flat in appearance and detracts from the excellent woodburning stove that the Country 6 model is. The finish has completely rubbed off at the handle position within 2 months of use. We are avid stove owners (we have bought 4 stoves so far as we would not have a home without one) and this stove is an excellent choice operationally, the double doors are particularly useful for proving ease of access during fuelling & cleaning.
