Stovax Multi Fuel version. paid around 630

Hello. feels strange actually writing a review after spending about 6 months reading them and agonising over what one to get. really happy I decided on the Stockton 4. it was a real struggle finding one I liked that also fit in my fireplace (68 cm wide 71 cm high 37 cm deep) it just about fits in the hole and looks great! the room is 7m by 3.5 and it heats it really well. also, my room is not well insulated and very draughty. if I was going to find bad things to say about it I'd say that the fire box is a bit small so need to refuel it more often if running it on high but that doesn't bother me as I'm just happy it fits and I like refuelling anyway :) I was worried about the window being too small compared to other stoves but the window looks great and is a good view of the fire. the way it works is very impressive with the air wash system. the controls work really well and the whole thing shouts quality. I very almost went for the firefox 5 which seems like a good stove for the price but very pleased I paid extra for this one. I had a flue fitted and the draw is great. my cat pickles also likes it.
