Kernow Fires Testimonials

Thank you Kernow Fires

  • clearview pioneer

These images were posted on our Facebook page 'Thank you Kernow Fires! Love our log fire and beautiful slates! :)'

'Love our log fire! Thank you for doing an amazing job. Very professional and helpful company. We just need to enjoy it in the winter time.'

Then a note to our installation lads 'Very pleased.  Very friendly, tidy and finished everything with no fuss and it all looks excellent.  Thanks Jack and Ricky.'

Shiela Piasecki‎ had a Clearview Pioneer in brown fitted in her living room.  Graham our surveyor suggested the slates around the outside to protect the wallpaper from the heat of the fire.

We made several visits to the show room to discuss our needs with Kelly and Simon, their expertise allowed us to have the fire we really wanted.

  • Hwam 3045 cornwall installation

 A good experience. We made several visits to the show room to discuss our needs with Kelly and Simon, their expertise allowed us to have the fire we really wanted. The fitting was done with minimal disruption. The fire itself is elegant and and we are delighted with it. It worked perfectly during the trial burnings, and we look forward to the colder weather when we can experience its full benefit. Thank you everyone at Kernow Fires.

Woodburners installed in Cornwall

After viewing a fire you had installed at a neighbours property and following visits to both your sites at Wadebridge and Redruth, my wife and I decided to go ahead with choosing Kernow Fires to install a wood burner, this decision being reinforced by comments left on your Website, Facebook and Twitter.

Graham visited our property and subsequently discussed various options including the most appropriate size and style of wood burner, how the installation would be carried out and how long  installation may take.  Graham was able to convince us that we had not only chosen the correct wood burner, but more importantly the correct company to carry out the supply and installation.

Liaison and contact with your office team was faultless and, we were kept fully informed throughout the process.

Your installation colleagues Kevin, Ricky and Dan arrived exactly as scheduled; they were efficient, friendly and professional from the off; and we were confident in leaving them in the house to get on with things without interruption or interference.  I can confidently say as a result of our experience that they are all terrific ambassadors for Kernow Fires.

We are extremely pleased with both the wood burner and the installation; your staff were all extremely polite, professional and are a credit to you and your company; although you probably already know that already.  I will have no hesitation in either using your services again, or recommending you unreservedly.

As an aside, I would be extremely grateful if you would pass on my sincere thanks to Ross, whose input was extremely helpful and very much appreciated.

Kernow Fires, our sitting room has been transformed

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Kernow Fires. Despite thinking it would be an extremely disruptive few days Lee Edginton and team were brilliant at keeping the dust to a minimum and a pleasure to have in the house. Thank you Kernow Fires, our sitting room has been transformed.

Fantastic Staff

I would highly recommend Kernow Fires, as from the moment we walked into the showroom and were warmly greeted by Claire we felt totally confident in her knowledge of the products. Fantastic staff and really friendly people and this has to be said of Ross the Surveyor who advised us of various requirements for our home, Kevin & Ricky our Installers who made such an amazing job of the Installation and also thank you to Mark & Tommy for calling in and dropping off our flamers and kindling, really nice guys and very amiable. Once again thank you all for an exceptional job well done and what a fantastic team!!! Would definitely recommend this Company if you need a fire.

A huge thank you to Kevin & Ricky for installing our beautiful fire.  👍 😃

We had a Contura fire fitted in our new extension by Kernow Fires and couldn't be happier we love the modern look of it and are amazed at how much heat it produces. All the staff at Kernow fires were fantastic from the people in the shop to the installers they gave us so much help to choose the right fire for our needs and we would highly recommend them to anyone.  Plus Freddie loves his fire it's one of his favourite places to be!

Thank you

Thanks for Friday’s install of cream Jotul – all your guys were very good & thanks also to the office for getting us scheduled earlier than originally planned. The bill was paid yesterday & I may come back to you after the winter to get the stove lifted out so we can paint a bright colour onto the new render – in lieu of a brightly coloured stove!

With many thanks

Letter of appreciation for good work done

In the summer of this year I attended your Open Day and was impressed with the Clearview Pioneer fire and it's controllability in the showroom.  I informed the sales staff if he could guarantee that if I purchased one mine too would burn 'like that', I was assured it would.

My conclusion to date:- As the weather has been so mild I have only just started using it and can confirm that it burns with precise controllability as stated and that I am impressed with it's heat output and quality of the professional installers and the nice little touches of the 'starter pack' logs, gloves, firelighters etc.

In this day of complaining please accept this letter of appreciation for your good work done.

Your sincerely

Adrian Williams, Bodmin

You've made our house a home

I just wanted to let you know how over the moon we are with our new fire and the log delivery.  We had the most wonderful night last night with the fire lit and us and the dogs lying on the floor enjoying the warmth.  After months of building work and living in chaos it was and absolute delight.  You've made our house a home at last.  A huge thank you to everyone.  Please let everyone know how pleased we are with their work and the fire.

Catherine from Cornish Interiors

We've used Kernow Fires regularly over the last 8 years for various projects and have always found them supremely helpful, knowledgeable and creative. They have the technical know how to make sure everything works, but the design flair to come up with new ideas too. We'd thoroughly recommend them!

Canít believe we didnít install one years ago

All members of our family are enjoying our new woodburner, even Frank our border terrier puppy!  Can’t believe we didn’t install one years ago!

Merry Christmas to everyone at Kernow Fires.

Michelle Moore 

Praise from Jill Stein

“It’s comforting and company as well as providing warmth.  I think it’s primal really; it's in our DNA to want a fire, and a log burner provides a wonderful focal point to a room.” She suggests I talk to Simon or Ross at Kernow Fires who supply all the log burners for her interior designs. “They both have a real eye for detail and design,” 

From editorial in Cornwall Living October 2015

Inset Woodburner in a Victorian Fireplace

Excellent service from Kernow Fires. They bent over backwards to come in at short notice when we had an unexpected opportunity. The guys who installed the fire were great - very friendly (and funny!) and they did a really clean, quick and thorough job. Highly recommend them to anyone.

No Hesitation in recommending them to my clients

I have worked on numerous projects in existing and new build properties, where Kernow Fires have installed woodburners, I have had no hesitation in recommending them to my clients and I've had two woodburners installed by them in my own properties. 

Above all they are professional, knowledgeable and helpful, as well as being very friendly, and they're particularly good at suggesting the most appropriate fire and surround to suit the style of the house, from traditional through to very contemporary. Without doubt they are my go-to supplier of woodburners.

Installing our Contura 556

Mark and Darren have just finished installing our new Contura 556, and what a great job they have done! They arrived on time, put down their dust sheets and worked diligently until finished. They were tidy, cleaning up as they went, and worked well as a team. Showed us how to manage the fire and lit it prior to leaving. They were friendly and courteous throughout, as were everyone we dealt with over a sometimes prolonged period. We would be more than happy to recommend Kernow Fires to anyone. Good show,well done.

The heartbeat has been put back in our home!

Excellent service from everyone at Kernow Fires.

From start to finish our whole experience with Kernow Fires has been absolutely brilliant.

From very helpful Rae in the showroom to Graham our installation surveyor who was very knowledgeable and of course to Kevin and Ricky

who both worked extremely hard.

We absolutely love our Clearview Pioneer 400P.

It is really easy to light and even though it is only a small stove it gives off loads of heat and so quickly.

The heartbeat has been put back in our home!

Kernow Fires were very professional and we cannot recommend them highly enough.

We would like to say thank you so much to everyone at Kernow Fires.

Thanks for your creative input

Been meaning to send you a photo of the completed Contura i4 installation.
We love it!

A Cornish Hotpod

Rob and Ian fitted our HotPod this week, we've been excitedly waiting for the house to be ready to get it installed. They talked through the various fitting options, flu colours, positioning etc in a very clear manner and set to work. Great attention to detail and, as it was our first woodburner, all safety and operation information was gone through. Prior to first burn, the polished everything and even re sprayed parts of the stove that had been marked with the stove cement. Couldn't fault them and couldn't recommend highly enough! Thanks guys!!!

We are absolutely delighted!

Woodburner Installed on The Lizard

Such brilliant staff! We chose our stove and hearth around February, have been back to Wadebridge a couple of times to confirm our choices, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We had the flue fitted whilst the roof was being renewed in April and the guys worked around roofers, builders and our electrician.

Finally we were ready to have it fitted and again Kernow Fires excelled themselves. Our fitter (Mark) and his trainee cut the hearth on site exactly as we wanted it, discussed with us the depth of the up stand and the exact sitting of our Vlaze panel.

The result is amazing. Everything perfectly fitted and two very satisfied customers. What a great team - thank you guys!!!!

Lesley Stott, The Lizard

The fire is FAB, and works really well.

  • Hwam 3610

Dear Hayley and Graham,

Just a quick note to let you know that Jack came on Friday to complete the installation.

The fire is FAB, and works really well. Jack and his colleagues were really pleasant and the installation was completed with the minimum of disruption.

We had painted the area around the fire, and now that the safety glass has been installed behind the stove, it really looks great.

I know that ordering the safety glass put us back a little, but I’m glad we went with it, as it looks so good. We are also glad that we took your advice and went with the opaque glass.

Thanks again for all your help - we really couldn’t have done it without you.

Thanks again for all your help. It really is appreciated.

With Kind Regards,

Excellent service from the showroom in Wadebridge

I would recommend Kernow Fires to anyone. Excellent service from the showroom in Wadebridge, to Graham who came out to survey for our Contura Wood Burner to the men who came to install. Even if you have any little problems, they are happy to come back and check all is okay and give you guidance if required. Thank you.

Jotul F602 professionally installed

We've just had a Jotul F602 professionally installed in a room with new fixtures, fittings and carpet by Kevin and Ricky who were both first-rate. They totally protected the work and surrounding areas and left no trace when they had finished. The finished job looks magnificent, with clean lines, no leaks and an excellent initiation into the workings and operation of the stove. A superb job and highly recommended!

Everybody in your showroom were very knowledgable

Mr Dancey had a Charnwood Bay fitted by Jack in May.  Here's what he thought of our service.

We found everybody very helpful and efficient.  Everybody we spoke to in your showroom and  those that came to fit the fire were very knowledgeable - sales, design and fitting.  All were engaging pleasant people who did a very professional job.  I am confident using the fire and would recommend Kernow Fires.

Kernow Fires are a superb company to deal with.

Kernow Fires are a superb company to deal with.  Every single person that we dealt with was patient, helpful, reassuring and knowledgable.  The best of all though is our new log burner which is just superb.  I had so many doubts but we are so pleased and warm with the end result.  Please extend our thanks to everyone.

The installation of a Scan DSA 3-5 in Polzeath

Once again, thank you for a job exceedingly well done. You went above and beyond all our expectations.

The quality of the workmanship was second to none as our job was quite a large undertaking with four fires to be fitted and four chimney-stacks to be lined. From our initial contact with your office it was immediately clear that we were dealing with a professional and caring company. Your quotation was both competitive and compelling. Don, the surveyor who visited us, spent several hours inspecting chimneys, measuring rooms and showing us a selection of fires that he advised would be fit and efficient for purpose. Nothing was too much trouble and indeed Don duly arrived on the first day, along with the fitters and the fires to make sure that all he had promised was to be delivered.

Barney and Dan worked to the highest of standards and were conscientious and considerate at all times of our beautiful home and the need for care and vigilance. There was not a trace of debris or dust left when they had completed the job.

We are very satisfied with the four wood burners you supplied. We have nothing but the highest praise for everyone we were in contact with at Kernow Fires. We cannot praise your firm highly enough and we would not hesitate to give our earnest recommendations to anyone considering purchasing a wood burning stove.

Once again, thank you for a job exceedingly well done. You went above and beyond all our expectations

The service from Kernow Fires was excellent

The service from Kernow Fires was excellent. Ours wasn't an easy installation, but they perseveres and eventually got the fire in. The two sets of installers were very good, friendly, accommodating and hard working. We are delighted with the fire. It has transformed the house and is easy to light and use. Rebecca in the Pool Showroom is very friendly and helpful. She was a great help to us when we were choosing our fire. We would certainly recommend Kernow Fires to anyone thinking of buying a fire.

Many thanks to Ross and the team,customer service was excellent as was the knowledge of individual fires. You were so accommodating when I asked for a particular Vlaze panel to be installed around the inset stove.
When it was fitted I was absolutely delighted with the result and have had many wonderful comments about the fire would happily recommend you to anyone that asked. Will send a picture.

Fabulous Service

@KernowFires fabulous service, Ricky and great guys fitted my new woodburner...strongly recommended

Anita Donley on Twitter

They could teach a lesson to other trades with regards to customer relations, attitude and work ethic.

I would like to place on record, my gratitude to both Barney and Dan for their hard work during the recent installation of our stove.  This turned out to be a problematic process due to the damage found to the original chimney liner; but despite all barriers placed in their way, they both remained calm and polite irrespective of the frustrations they were obviously experiencing.  We were constantly informed of both positive and negative developments and given the benefit of Barneys experience while deciding if it was practical to continue with the installation.

They arrived promptly each morning, and were meticulous with regards to protecting our property and left each evening leaving the room tidy and usable.  They could teach a lesson to other trades with regards to customer relations, attitude and work ethic.

We are satisfied with the result, which has exceeded our expectations, and I would be more than happy to recommend your services.

Please pass on our thanks to Barney and Dan; they are a credit to themselves and Kernow Fires.

Very satisfactory installation and experience

Dear Clare

Thank you for your assistance in trying to help us leave a Google review, apologises for my failing abysmally!

However I would like to leave the following coments.  The installers Rob and lee were friendly, polite, knowledgeable and workmanlike.  i understand that the cause of their late arrival on the first day was not of their making and necessitated a return visit by Rob, which was of no inconvenience to us, as further  restoration is required for this room.  They took the trouble to explain what they are doing and why, during the installation.  The demonstration, by Rob, as to how to light and operate the appliance was excellent and very necessary for us: all in all a very satisfactory installation and experience.

Yours sincerely,

Meryl and David Dowling, Wadebridge

It was a pig of a job!

Absolutely Brilliant.  It was a pig of a job, there isn't a straight line in the house, I don't know how they managed to do such a good job.  I had a fire last night for the first time in a year and it was wonderful.  The men were brilliant and so clean, they put stuff over everything  and they were so nice.  I would recommend you to anyone I really would.

Thank you

What fun it is tending a fire

We just want to thank you for all the time and trouble you have committed to getting our stove just right.  We are sorry it turned out to be a bit of a pain for you to install but it was always a pleasure to have your men in the house and just marvel at their skill and commitment.

They are always polite, did a good job and cleaned up brilliantly after themselves.

As for the stove itself we couldn't be more delighted and have had it going every evening since mid November.  We are so impressed at how simple it is to control and what fun it is tending to a fire, so much more satisfying than turning on a switch!

The particular design that Graham had in mind when he came to have a look turned out to be just perfect.  We were not at all sure what it would look like but it is as if it was tailor made for us.

We are also very impressed with the logs and how hot and clean they burn.  We will have some more for next winter.

Bes wishes,

Rod & Gill Harrison

We will have no hesitation in coming back to you and will gladly recommend Kernow Fires.

Please pass on our thanks to the guys who's installed our 2 log burners on Friday, they did a great job. Their approach to the work was first class, they kept us informed as to what was happening especially when the unexpected things cropped up and left the cottage spick and span when they left. The general attitude was positive and friendly - a credit to Kernow Fires.

The pre-installation service has also been great from Simon's assessment visit to the help from the office.

If we need any more burners in the future we will have no hesitation in coming back to you and will gladly recommend Kernow Fires if we get the opportunity.

Feedback on one of our installers

Harold fitted a Contura 810 for Mr Hamilton in Bodmin He said 'Very helpful and informative…thanks very much.'  He also fitted a Woodwarm 5kW for Mr Moger in St Breward.  Mr Moger said 'The installation was 1st class and a very good installer who has done a good job to a very good standard well done many thanks.' 

Anne Cleave from Port Issac had this to say 'Absolutely Brilliant.  It was a pig of a job, there isn't a straight line in the house, I don't know how they managed to do such a good job.  I had a fire last night for the first time in a year and it was wonderful.  The men were brilliant and so clean, they put stuff over everything and they were so nice.  I would recommend you to anyone I really would.'

Great week Harrold - Well Done!

Contura i6 for Mr Gray

We experienced very helpful staff throughout and good after service. Fitters were all careful to minimise mess. In particular Graham was very helpful in discussing options and final design and Rob was very good at sorting out final fitting/adjustments.  We are yet to fully test fire in the winter.

Feedback from our customers this week

A week of great comments from our customers.

Mr Titcomb had a Scan 83 fitted by Harold in his home in Port Issac. 'Very happy with installation, first class job'

Mr Hawthorn had a Clearview Vision fitted by Rob in his home in Rock. 'Hot Stuff!' 

The Butlers in St Teath had a Charnwood Island II fitted by Mark. 'Quick, efficient and professional.  Left the house clean and tidy.'

Harold fitted a Charnwood C-Four for Mr and Mrs McNicholas in St Austell. 'Very good!'

The Dancey's in Bude had a Charnwood Bay 5 fitted by Jack and Ryan. 'Impressed by Jack and Ryan's work and the way they worked together with us.'

Mr Turney from St Eval had a Contura i5 fitted with a Wessex stone fireplace fitted by Kev. 'Excellent service and very professional'

The Mercer's in Callington had a Contura i4M installed with a Wessex fireplace fitted by Harold. 'Very neat and tidy.  A beautiful installation.  Very pleased. Thank you.'

Rob installed a C-four for the Yeo's in Lostwithiel. 'Very happy'

I have been very impressed by the whole experience from your company.

We are quick to complain but slow to praise, I feel the need to praise which for me is rare, but I have been very impressed by the whole experience from your company.

From the initial request for somebody to examine a fire installed by the houses previous owner to the installation by your engineers, I have been advised, reassured, guided, and been given the impression of competence.  It has been a very enjoyable and knowledgeable journey to the ending of your fire installation by two very friendly and competent engineers, who were very helpful indeed, and have done a superb job.  You certainly were not the cheapest quote we had, but Don was so helpful in explaining what was needed I felt the extra expense was well worth it, this so far has been the case.  Thank you all for your help and agree with your final instruction, a good fire should be enjoyed with a glass or two of wine.

We now watch the fire rather than the dread tv!

Dear Simon and All at Kernow Fires

We have been away sailing for the past few weeks (bloody awful weather!) and hence rather late in responding to your note.  The fire looks good and while we have not used it often, works well.  We now watch the flames rather than the dread TV!

Excellent works and thanks to you all.

Special thanks to Don

just wanted to say thanks so much for our beautiful wood burner, it looks really attractive.  We couldn't believe how easy it was to use.  Special thank to Don for creating the slate hearth and for all the attention to detail, it certainly paid off.

we would definitely recommend you.

Good Communication

Our experience of Kernow Fires is good communication, there were a few minor issues with the installation but these were dealt with in a professional manner.  Kevin and Jack were both very professional, as was Ross and it was he who sorted out the minor issue and guaranteed we would be happy with the end result.

We found your service, range of fires and knowledge of your staff excellent and I will recommend you.

I just wanted to relay how delighted we were with the enthusiasm, knowledge and professionalism of your staff.

My wife and I visited your showroom on Saturday 26/4/14 and just wanted to relay how delighted we were with the enthusiasm, knowledge and professionalism of your staff, both the young lady who greeted us and Ross who gave us extensive information on all the fires and options were outstanding.

When we are ready to have a stove on our project, we will definitely be using Kernow fires.

We lit the fire on Monday when it was a dull afternoon. The flames were lovely to watch and very easy to control. I'm sure we shall have all the heat we need!

I must say how pleased we were with Kevin and all your workmen. As well as getting on with the job, they were always tidy and considerate. It was great to have the chimney rebuilt and the fire installed, all in the space of a fortnight.

An exceptional Job

I would like to add my thanks to both Barney and Dan for an exceptional job.  Their workmanship was of the highest standard.  They were both very respectful of the property and very conscientious in their manner.

Please pass on my sincere thanks to both for a job well done.  I will have no hesitation in recommending Kernow Fires, and Barney and Dan in the future.

Thank you for the log delivery

Thank you very much for the delivery on Saturday.  Thanks also for the cheery answer phone message from the gentleman who delivered them and the care that he took in placing them under cover and in the dry.  How the heck he did it with our sloping drive is a mystery.

I spent a pleasant time building a proper log area for storage along the inside of a very dry garage wall and then ducked under the squalls stacking them.  Over 60% inside and the rest neatly stacked under a tarp.

Just need 17th Dec to arrive now!


Phillip Boorman

Really pleased with the professionalism

Please can I say a massive thank you to Steve and Lee (sorry if I've got their names wrong! Please kindly correct).  The fire place, chimney and woodburner were fitted to a very high standard and the work they did was superb - a real credit to your company. 

Kernow Fires provides a fantastic service and we would definitely use them again.  Please kindly use this feedback if you so wish.

I’d just like to add to all the other positive comments, that I was really pleased with the professionalism and work done to put in my Charnwood 4. The guys were friendly, helpful, and they tidied up well after they had been my house for the 3 days.

Great service, and I am very pleased to recommend them to anyone thinking of using Kernow Fires.

With many thanks and best wishes

Mr & Mrs Doughty

Your fitters were excellent

We are very pleased with the fire and you after service and attention to detail.

Your fitters were also excellent.

Mr Keith, Mevagissey

we are very pleased

Thanks for the data plate received in the post after our SCAN woodburner was installed.

May I say how pleased we are with this beautiful fire and with how the installation went. Delivery went without a hitch and the final fitter – whose name I didn’t get – spent a good morning getting it all done and connected to the flue properly (which I believe needed some extra work due to builders not doing as much as was expected); and finally explaining to me how to operate it. He was a very pleasant, personable chap so, as you can see, we’re very pleased with your service.

Many thanks

Full of Hints and Tips

I would highly recommend Kernow Fires. They installed a wood burner for us in 2015, and then we recently had a problem, which we just couldn't work out so someone came out to look at our fire and sorted it in no time - lovely helpful guy full of hints and tips to ensure we got the best from our fire. Now we are enjoying our lovely fire again!

Mr and Mrs Meyer

Rob and Ian did a excellent job installing the Clearview woodburner (informative, polite and tidy workmen). Just in time for the colder weather, the fire is very efficient and produces so much more heat than our old woodburner.

It was a pleasure to deal with Kernow Fires

It was a pleasure to deal with Kernow Fires from beginning to end the attentive detail from all members of the team was excellent.

I cannot single out one particular member of staff I dealt with as everyone was excellent; so helpful, and courteous. From Ross the surveyor whose expert knowledge helped us choose the right installation to the two guys who installed the fire; everyone did an excellent job. We would certainly recommend Kernow Fires to all our friends.

John Drury

We thought the service received from Kernow Fires was first class

We thought the service received from Kernow Fires was first class and we both would have no hesitation in recommending the company to anyone who might wish to go down a similar route. The whole process was made easy by the professional staff at the showroom, the engineer and the fitters. Most impressed. We wish all at Kernow Fires much continued and deserved success for the future.

They left the lounge cleaner than when they arrived!

I would just like to say how very impressed we were with Kevin and the lads. They left the lounge cleaner than when they arrived. Always on time and have done a good job. We will send photos when the rest of the room is finished.

Many Thanks,

The moment we set foot in your showroom

I would like to mention how pleased we have been with the execution of this order from the moment we set foot in your showroom to the lighting up of the installed fire.

Dr A R Piper, Liskeard


Thank you for the great service and excellent installation.

Just a quick note to say that we are very happy with our Foxfire stove and to congratulate you on the excellent service we received from beginning to end.  We would particularly like to thank Barney and Dan, who installed the stove, for all their hard work.  I hadn’t really appreciated the extent of the work involved in knocking out the old fireplace, to accommodate the new stove, until I saw Barney on his back, half way inside the fireplace, covered in inches of rubble and dust with sparks flying from the angle grinder!  Despite all the debris coming out of the old fireplace, Barney and Dan managed to keep the mess to a minimum and left us with a nice new stove and fireplace.

Thank you for the great service and excellent installation.  We can’t wait until it gets really cold outside so that we can be nice and toasty inside.

I am sure my house was cleaner after they left!

Many thanks for the excellent work carried out by your team.  I have nothing but praise for each of them and the standard of workmanship and cleanliness - I am sure my house was cleaner after they left than before it was started!

I am very pleased with the installations and the fires each proved to be an excellent choice.  Thank you too, for your guidance.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm in the future.

I send my best wishes to you and your staff for Christmas and the New Year.

A thoroughly refreshing experience which was completed in a friendly and efficient manner

From the moment we walked into the warm and attractive showroom on a wet afternoon just before Christmas we were made to feel welcome. Jane took a great deal of trouble to show us the appropriate stoves for our situation and to advise us on selection and use.

A firm date was given for the visit of your surveyor and Don turned up on the dot and again spent a good deal of time discussing our requirements and assessing the proposed site before making detailed measurements and advising us as to what were possible problems and solutions.

The order having been taken efficiently by the office over the telephone, a date for installation was given and were told that it was anticipated the installation would be completed within a day.

The installers were also prompt, courteous and efficient and were soon busy with adjusting our fireplace to suit the stove.

Thank you all for a thoroughly refreshing experience which was completed in a friendly and efficient manner and provided excellent value for money.

The installation of a Charnwood C four in Mylor Bridge, Falmouth

We would like you to know how pleased we are

We would like you to know how pleased we are, not just with the woodburner itself which looks just perfect in the cottage and is providing the heat that we have been yearning for for many months and the cottage has been for many decades! But also the service provided by you and also the fitters who were all amiable, professional and completed the work to such a good standard and with minimal fuss and disruption. We would also like to make a special mention about Claire, who when we first came to your showroom to look at the range of woodburners, gave us such good service with her knowledge of the products and did so in a most pleasant manner that we left feeling that we had been given all the necessary information without being subjected to a hard sell.

We would be happy to recommend you to friends.

Thanks, one and all,

Phil Tizzard and Chris Ellis, St Tudy
