Has anyone come across the kitchen ranges from Thornhill Eco based in Canterbury?

No, sorry. Looks interesting, but would need to compare it carefully with other cookers available. I am concerned that they only compare it with Aga, as there are a number of other cookers out there, some of which may be better than Aga, as as far as I recall, they have gone away from wood burning a bit over late years.

im not familiar with such rigs but the spec looks sensible the ability to add a solar heated water unit makes sense for summer.

can you feed it 4 to 5 tons of dry logs per year?

can you re plumb the house or attach it to the existing pipework/ rads?

will it be too hot to use as a water heater/cooker in summer?
