The Woodford 5 is an understated, modern stove made in the South West of England. A lifetime warranty on the body of the stove is a desirable offering (depends on how long you've got left but nice to know) and the eco-design-ready status will provide reassurance (means it has been tested not to upset the neighbours, the planet or the Mayor of London).
Tested by us 4th September 2018. Works beautifully. Very controllable and lots of heat. "Very, very impressed" said Arran who sits nearest to it in the Stovefitter's office.
The Woodford 5 has a direct air supply as standard (you can connect it via a pipe so it draws air from outside, useful in "passiv haus" properties), and an optional rear heat shield should you be up against a combustible wall.
A removeable handle is a useful addition as long as the kids don't lose it.
The Woodford range is new for 2018 and Stovefitter's are proud to be assigned Premier Online Retailer status.
Woodfords are made of steel (except for the glass which is made of glass of the clear variety).
I have a Woodford 5kW Widescreen and have been very impressed with its log burning capabilities. Very efficient, highly controllable and great heat that emitted from the stove. I have had a little trouble getting solid fuel to slow burn over night, having tried a number of different HETAS approved fuels, which I put down to the grate design, which is highly integrated into the firefox and restricts the flow of air to the centre of the box. This restriction is great for control, but limits air flow from beneath to the centre of the firebox, meaning that air flow to the solid fuel mass is not overly well distributed.
All in all, happy wiith the build quality and would recommend highly if you wanted to burn mainly wood, but for solid fuels I would not give this stove top marks and have knocked off a star for this reason.
As for the other reviews at the time of writing, 3 of these are from the same person, apparently associated with this site, and another from that seems to be the director of the company that manufactures Woodford stoves, the company name that Ryan H states in his name label, which would lead me to question the objectivity of these comments!
‘I have just installed my brand new SIA Eco design ready Woodford 5kw (recently approved by HETAS) and I have to say I am very impressed. Several things actually please me, firstly and most importantly my fuel consumption has dropped 3 fold. I’m literally putting 3 x less fuel on the Woodford compared to my old stove that wasn’t SIA Eco Design Ready. Secondly the build quality is second to none, being made in England you’d expect the quality to be high but this usually comes with a high price but not in this case, the Woodford is probably the most competitively priced stove in its class.’
‘I also love all the features you really do get a lot of stove for your money, I particularly like the smooth control and how much range and controllability that give you.’
Here at Stovefitter's we like the wide stoves - more glass is always good. Great range of stoves from Woodford and Stovefitter's are proud to have been chosen as a Premier retailer in 2018.
