Review of Stovax Stockton Milner stove

An inset stove that needs short logs

Simon Measures 6 years ago

This is an inset stove which our local fitter recommended as ideal for our fireplace. At first it took some getting used to as I have a regular woodburning stove in our holiday cottage. However, once I realised that firstly it needs shorter logs than the normal 240mm ones and secondly that it likes to start on a bed of ash then it worked a treat. It's easy to light and throws out a lot of heat once it's been going for awhile. I love it. (Be sure to order logs less than 200mm long!)
