    We recently moved and inherited a wood burner in the lounge a Aarrow eco plus 5 , it had limited control and was not well thought out . We decided to have a second burner installed in the back room and I looked around to see what was available as it had to be 5kw and narrow as the opening was only 2ft (610mm) wide , also we had a tight flue so the max flue liner was 5 inch(125mm). I went for the Dartmoor 5 , had it installed and have never been happier!! It's well thought out with great control for top and bottom air draw , so it's easy to light and easy to achieve a correct room temperature. I'll be changing the other burner early next year for another one of these ! Hope that says how good it is because it really is !!!!

    I've recently had the Dean Stoves Foxworthy installed into my conservatory. I'm so happy with the woodburner. It's turned the coldest room in the house into the warmest. Excellent controllability
    , efficient and good looking. My other woodburner is a Clearview Pioneer 400 and the Foxworthy is just as good. Excellent recommendation by the company that installed it. One happy customer Dean Stoves!

    We looked at dozens of woodburners before choosing the W5, the plain design initially attracted us as our house is 1979. The large window gives a great view of the fire. The controls are very
    easy to operate, it throws out a lot of heat for 5kw and very reasonably priced. We would definately choose the Deans Dartmoor W5 again.Handle does get a bit hot but its supplied with excellent gloves. Good airwash.

  • Great little performer.

    We've had this model of stove for nearly 4 years now. The design caught our eye initially. We have a 1950's house so didn't want anything too modern but neither did we want something ornate and traditional. This design seems nicely neutral in that respect. The big window is kept really clear by the excellent air-wash and despite not being a large stove, the width (and perfectly flat-top) allows for a medium sized kettle and casserole either side of the flue collar. This was great during a 3 day power cut after local storms. The heat is ample for our lounge during the evening and if lit in the morning during cold weekends it will slowly heat the rest of the house during the course of the day. It's very controllable and can either roar or tick-over when you're familiar with the controls and the idiosyncrasies of the logs in your basket. It's simplicity is welcome to me although some might rue the lack of a "cool-touch" door handle or a nice neat ash box when cleaning out, (this requires a little fireplace shovel and bucket). It's very solidly built and lighting it in our 4th winter, the key moving parts (door hinges, air controls, door handle) have shown no sign of wear or deterioration. The installer was a bit peeved when one of the adjustable levelling bolts in a rear foot bent on its weld but this was remedied with a strip of lead under the foot and has been long forgotten about. As with most stoves, this one seems sensitive to the design and layout of flue. We were fortunate that our existing chimney was straight and large enough to accommodate a pumice-lined flue. It absolutely roars on lighting. My mum has the same stove but with an external stainless flue incorporating a couple of bends. It doesn't draw anything like as well, smokes a bit with an open door and the air-wash isn't as effective. Arguably it's easier to control on "tick-over" though. So would I recommend one? -We're thinking of extending and getting another stove at the other end of the house. -I'd definitely go to a Dean forge stockist first. Very happy.

    Recently installed very pleased with the stove and installer (top bloke). Really big fire box and large viewing window. Airwash works well while you are actively burning with glass staying clear
    , and the glass is easy to clean in the morning after fire has burnt out overnight. Kicks out the heat once established. Very happy to recommend this stove/burner.
