'The Woodburner that Peter installed in our living room has transformed our living room and has brought character back to the house. Peter was a great help when choosing the correct woodburner for the space and was very professional and installed the woodburner in no time. I would recommend cinnabar stove to friends and family.'

'We had always imagined having a cosy wood burning stove to sit and chill in front of while keeping warm on cold winter evenings. We now have that thanks to Pete at Cinnabar Stoves.
He was friendly, punctual and polite and went about his work with minimal fuss.
The work involved us having our boarded up fireplace opened up and rendered, the chimney lined, a slate hearth fitted & a lovely wood burning stove & mantelpiece installed. All this was done in just 3 days!
We are delighted with the quality of the workmanship. Before he left he gave us a tutorial of how to use the stove to best effect for efficiency and the recommend schedules for having our chimney swept, which we will be calling in his daughter to do when needed as she is a fully qualified chimney sweep.
All in a very positive experience and we recommend him to anyone requiring similar work done to ours. Cheers Pete!!!'

'From the first phone call to the commissioning of our stove the service was exceptional. It's important to feel confident and reassured when buying and installing a stove, the safety aspect is really important to us, Peters experience gave us the reassurance we needed to feel confident in his ability. He arrived on time, worked meticulously, finishing up with a driving lesson on how to get the best from the stove. The stove, hearth and flew recommended are absolutely stunning, thank you Peter'

"Peter from Cinnabar Stoves gave us an honest appraisal of the work that needed to be done to restore a fireplace in our lounge and install new chimney liner and a suitable woodstove. He was clear on his way of working and on his pricing and given what was required we felt we got great value for money.
He began work exactly when scheduled, helped us protect the rest of the room from dust and then turned the whole job around in just 3 days! The result is a beautiful blank slate fireplace that we're very happy with, and that's ready for our next phase of decorating.
Peter was full of advice and excellent conversation throughout and we're very pleased we chose Cinnabar Stoves to undertake the job. Peter has enough experience to make you feel at ease as he transforms the heart of the home into something functional and beautiful. "

"Excellent customer service. Superb professionalism in all matters concerning the installation of our stove.
Peter Skeet is a convivial person, it was a pleasure having him working in our home.
Cinnabar stoves should be your first choice."
Shaun & Tamera, Rhydcymerau. 7 Nov 2019
"Absolutely delighted - everything went like clockwork including scaffolding and all done in 3 days. We did quite a bit of research (as you should for something like this) and I have no hesitation in recommending Cinnabar Stoves - Peter is a time served expert and his standard of work is excellent. No fuss and no mess and could not have gone better. Peter advised that we may have a problem with the flue before he left (downdraft) and when we told him there was an issue he immediately ordered a different version and fitted as soon as it came in and within a matter of days. Superb service and no doubt with some contractors we could have been chasing for weeks. Thank you Peter - we are delighted with the burner and most impressed with your service and I hope potential customers follow up with yourself based on this feedback."

"This was the second stove we've had installed by Peter at Cinnabar Stoves. Peter's attention to detail and quality of workmanship is exceptional and we are very happy with all the work that's been carried out. The original fire was a Parkray Aspect 14 together with a slate hearth in our lounge which is absolutely stunning and keeps us beautifully warm. The second was a smaller stove, an Aspect 4 in our dining area. Faultless workmanship, thank you Peter so much."

'We moved to Wales 6 weeks ago. We found Cinnabar Stoves in the local advertiser booklet. We found Peter to be professional, good company and very focused on achieving a most excellent outcome for us all in one day. We love the fire and appreciate all the advice he gave. Fantastic Job.
Thank you Cinnabar Stoves'

"Peter did an excellent job and completed everything we asked for in a reasonable time period. He went above and beyond in terms of sorting out our plastering, following the removal of a hideous fireplace and became our knight in shining armour when things went horribly wrong with burst pipes during the recent cold weather! Highly recommended!"

"We highly recommend Cinnabar Stoves to anyone.
Tim and Mel. February 2018
"Excellent in every way. I made contact with Peter of Cinnabar Stoves as a result of a recommendation from a friend. We needed a Wood Burner and Stainless Steel Chimney fitted at short notice and Cinnabar Stoves helped out by meeting our tight deadline. Everything went smooth from the outset, I received e-mails and calls as and when promised and the installation itself was faultless, a really good job with no mess left at all.
This Company clearly prides itself on Customer Service which is quite rare these days, I have nothing but positive words as a result of my experience with them and would recommend them without hesitation. A superb service from start to finish."

"Thanks for a superb job fitting our new wood burner to Brook cottage.
An efficient job carried out in challenging circumstances with no fuss or hassle. Thanks for staying to ensure the job was completed in one day!
You also gave us useful advice on the stove operation, which , on reading, was not in the manual.
Please feel free to post this recommendation on your web site or any social media."

"We had our wood burning stove supplied and fitted by Cinnabar stoves last week and are very happy with the whole process. The stove looks really attractive in out lounge, improving the look of the whole room. Peter and Mike made a great job of fitting it and replacing the wooden mantle shelf that was there with a much better (and heatproof) slate one. There was not a pre-existing chimney so we now have an impressive stainless steel one up the outside of the house which is attractive and adds character.
It is good to have a service that advises, supplies and fits, all in house so there is no hassle. Also, we shall be using their chimney sweeping service next year. Thanks again Peter"

"Both Colin and myself are absolutely delighted and say a big thank you for the service we received before and during the installation of our dual fuel fire. Even though there were a few challenges, which had not been foreseen , Peter and Mike sorted these with no fuss. We can highly recommend Cinnabar Stoves and will have no qualms in recommending them to friends and family."

"I would thoroughly recommend Cinnabar Stoves.
From my initial inquiry they were extremely helpful in developing and achieving my design ideas for a new fireplace with a wood burning stove. Their industry contacts, developed over many years, were key to this.
They delivered on time and on budget. One would expect this, but the manner in which the installation was done was notable. Friendly, efficient, clean (especially given the mess hacking out an old fireplace creates) and with a professionalism and attention to detail that impressed me greatly.
The end result is faultless, my original dream has been surpassed by the work of what I can only call master craftsmen."

"Thanks for excellent service and an impressive end result. Although the job was by no means as straightforward as it initially seemed, it was completed in time and to high quality."
"Cinnabar Stoves installed our wood burning stove a year ago and gave it it's annual sweep yesterday. Advice on how best to use it. Brilliant service...we would recommend them unreservedly!"

“We've recently had a Charnwood Cove2 wood burning stove installed by Cinnabar Stoves in our dining room, with a new chimney which went through a bedroom into the attic and out through the roof.
Peter Skeet of Cinnabar stoves did a first class job and we are very pleased with the end result. He was reliable and punctual and worked extremely hard. Peter also kept the mess to a minimum.
We would highly recommend him to anyone considering having a fire, stove or chimney installed.”
Carmarthen. September 2012
"Peter and Emily fitted our multifuel fire and it was not a straight forward task as the flue liner could not initially be fitted into the chimney due to the fact as Peter & Emily had already identified that there were some large stones blocking the path in the chimney for the liner to be inserted. Peter and Emily dealt with this issue with great skill by removing some stones from the gable end of our 160 year old cottage, removing the obstructing stone and then replacing the stones into the gable end so that it was not even noticeable that any change had been made – an excellent job!
The fitting of the multifuel fire was completed in the same efficient manner and additionally they took any rubbish with them and ensured that everything was left absolutely spotless.
We also believe that the advice and knowledge that Peter imparted to us with regard to using the fire correctly and safely was absolutely essential.
Both Peter and Emily are extremely competent and highly professional in their work, and we have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in providing them with the highest recommendation and we also have no hesitation in speaking to any future clients direct should they wish us to do so."
