Review of Stovax Stockton 3 stove

Small Stockton - Works well for us...

Mark 11 years ago

We have this stove in a small cottage on the coast in Suffolk. It is in a room 20ft x 13ft and provides plenty of heat even on the coldest of days for that room.

Can't remember how much we paid for it, but fitting took a couple of hours (by professionals), including an insulated flue.

It burns small logs (or coal) only, and needs to be going at near maximum rate to burn efficiently and keep the glass clean.

Best advice we were given when installing the stove was to choose the stove to fit the room and the heating conditions needed, not just one that looks pretty in the space (but you probably all knew that anyway).

Basically it's perfect for us, it's has even been our only source of heating for several months (over winter) before we got the main gas boiler fixed (to be fair it is a holiday cottage).

No probs with build quality after 3yrs.
