Review of The Flatford 6kw

Worth saving up for

Emma 8 years ago

Chesney stoves are a considered purchase compared to some models but I'm glad I finally decided to go for one. I find the Flatford very easy to light and control and it REALLY kicks out some heat - it feels far more like an 8kw to me than a 6kw. In the past I've had a Clearview and was very happy with it, but this stove heats up quicker, the airwash works better (the flames are quite spectacular) and the slim outlet at the front of the stove means that residual heat comes into the room rather than out the back and up the chimney. The build quality on mine is superb. Unlike the previous reviewer I've not had any problems with the handle. \n\nI'd recommend the Flatford to anyone who wants an easy to use, highly efficient stove that looks great too.
