If I owned my own cottage, I would have my kitchen redesigned to included a wood burning stove, for breads. Maybe not exactly like this. but something that created the hearth and home feeling, with functionality.
Woodstove - I love wood burning stoves. It's best when they aren't the only source of heat though. I still remember how bitterly cold it can be until the wood/coal starts kicking out enough heat to warm things up!
