Review of Villager Chelsea Duo stove

Chelsea Duo with fitted back boiler

Keith Lydon 6 years ago

Installed in July 2010 and have had a few problems since but the service dept have been excellent. Boiler works very well providing water for 3 radiators. Air wash system not so good and control of the various vent sliders is very hit and miss. Not impressed.

Generally stove performs well.
