We are thinking about one for the conservatory, so we could use it all year round. How much time does it take to put wood in and light it? Do they light easily or do you have to spend a long time fanning flames?

If properly laid, a fire should light easily and reliably.
It's worth spending a little extra time laying it properly to avoid spending extra time trying to light it.
Cleaning out the ash takes 5-10 minutes, depending on the type of fire.
Laying it will take 10-15 minutes depending on the type/size of fire.
If it's properly laid you should be able to use a single match and then leave it apart from adding extra wood.
Personally, I use newspaper, kindling and firewood.
