Review of Thornton Dale stove

Town and Country - Thornton Dale with Log Store

Richard Gillett 11 years ago

One of the best things I've every bought.Had it in over a year now. Situated in dining room on internal wall in four bedroom house, with large lounge and kitchen. Having been down to -12 outside temp, it easily maintaines +22/+24 deg through the whole house, which means we don't use our central heating system anymore. I used to keep it in over night but with it been so easy to light I don't bother anymore. It gives such a good burn that it leaves very little ash, only having to empty once a week, twice on rare occasions. I can't praise it enough and would recomend it to anyone. You do need a good place to store your timber if you don't have a good log supplier nearby, I already have next years logs in store.

Stove expert replied: Wood stores are a must if you are a committed stove user, worth getting next years wood in to ensure it is well seasoned.
