Log Burner - Gravity Hot Water - Advice Please

I've got a small cottage in the back of beyond in France that I hope to move to soon (had enough of UK!). Its got a small log burner that could do with replacing. I would like to put in a new burner with a back boiler and gravity fed water cylinder upstairs.

In the summer months the water will be heated by an immersion element. What I need to know, is how to control the heat of the water when it is heated by the log burner. Is there any way of mechanical or thermostatic control? If I don't have control over the hot water, is it likely to come out of the tap dangerously hot?

Can anyone recommend any log burner/back boiler systems - the simpler the better?
