Graham, or Smiffy as we know him worked wonders on many features within my derelict grade 2* merchants house in Shepton Mallet when it was conserved and restored. He made spiral staircase hand rails, fire surrounds, complex railings and much more. He brought his forge to site and understood every task thoroughly creating above and beyond what I expected. The finished project won 7 different awards/accolades ranging from local, regional, national and european. Those were definately achieved by Smiffys skill adding to those of the other team members.. Need a good blacksmith? Call him :)

Cannot recommend this mans stoves and the man himself highly enough. The burner he made for us is beautiful and his brilliant advice, service and knowledge have been invaluable. Welcome to visit us down in Kernow anytime Smiffy :) All the best. Peas & Love.

Very pleased with the service from Graham. The 'wagon stove' has transformed my workshop during the winter months whilst occupying the minimum of space. Highly recommended!

Hi Smiffy, we've not met, but we've just acquired one of your stoves through Willow, who fitted it up in our yurt, currently residing at the bottom of our garden. We waited til after the hot weather to light the stove, and we're pleased to say that it's a belter - thank you so much. Quick and plentiful heat, and we've even cooked soup on top. It's champion! We love the design and especially the air flow control mechanism, works brilliantly. We look forward to meeting you at some point, many many thanks meanwhile. Alison & Jeremy & family

Smiffy is a pleasure to have around as he's fitting my new wagon stove in my beloved VW LT45.  It's not finished yet but I just know it's going to be fabulous.  Can't wait to try it out and am so happy Smiffy is fitting the stove for me as he is truly a craftsman of high calibre and a lovely chap to boot!  Ta duck, as they say where I come from xx

Buying a stove fromSmiffy at Snail Stoves was not only easy but a pleasure. We have a custom-designed stove to fit the dimensions of the available hearth space and a unique door design as well. Smiffy is a true craftsman and a delight to deal with whether by email, on the phone or when visiting his workshop. Thanks very much!

Just finished the install of a Wagon stove into our new home to be (see the link). Smiffy has been an total gem, without even mentioning the wonderful stove I must say it's been an absolute pleasure doing business here. Smiffy is not only a master craftsman but a wealth of knowledge that he's happy to share...and have a laugh with too :) If I ever need another stove I'll make no hesitation in coming back.
