Laura McGarry and her Tara Stove

Why did they choose a Stanley stove? "My husband wanted a Stanley stove and a Stanley was going in and that was that. He always said when we have our house we are putting in a Stanley. ’”

What do they love about the Tara stove? " We love the look of the stove and that is was available in cream. Its easy to keep clean. Storm Ophelia knocked off our heating last year which was underfloor so all our heating was gone. We had no secondary heating before we installed the Tara. If this happens again we will have the Tara to keep us warm.“

So have you noticed a change in your home heating bills? "The Tara we have is a room heating stove. We have air to water with underfloor to do all our central heating for us. However when we have the Tara lighting and the heat builds up in our sitting room which is double height we open the double doors and let the heat into the open plan living space. If we light the Tara with coal in the evening we typically don’t have to top it up. ”

When prompted about her favourite moment." My favourite moment ‘Sitting back in the evening in front of the Tara with a cup of tea and children in bed. "
