The best looking British-made stove? We certainly think so. The same height and heat output (5kW) as the C-Four but at almost 4" wider (99mm) it gives you an improved widescreen view of the flames and safely takes much bigger logs at just over 12'' long (305mm). The C-Five features Charnwood's user-friendly single lever combustion air control for easy operation and clean burn airwash technology for improved efficiency and clear glass. As you'd expect from Britain's leading stove manufacturer the C-Five is very well made – from the premium quality cast iron door and heavy gauge steel bodywork to the chunky stay-cool door handle and all of the practical optional extras. If your fireplace has the width then this is the stove to fit. The Charnwood C-Five – the best-selling Great British stove.

The C-Five is a modern looking, well-built, easy to operate and reasonably priced stove that is also suitable for smoke control areas with the Defra Smoke Exempt kit. Me and my missus also loved the many colour options, enabling us to match it with the existing furniture and decor.
