Review of Newbourne 40FS stove

Excellent choice

Alan Ross 8 months ago

I've had this stove for five years. I've just bought another property and I'm going to buy another Newbourne although the price has gone up..

I can't complain at all about this stove. The build quality is excellent with no faults at all.

I love the minimal look, the cheaper option stoves have too much decoration or a badge.

The handle does get warm but what would you expect? I always use gloves to open the door to put in another log.

Again, this is the only choice of fire to go for.

Stove expert replied: Purchasing the same stove again is a good recommendation for any stove, great comments.
