About Us

about usFounded in 2009 and based in the beautiful countryside of Devon, England, Salamander Stoves is a family-run business specialising in the manufacturing and design of our high quality flagship stove, the Hobbit

With over 18 years of experience in dealing with a wide range of antique, modern and contemporary stoves, we have carefully brought this knowledge to bear in the design of our own cast iron multi-fuel stove. Our aim is to provide you with a high quality stove that will give you years of long, trouble-free service, and every stove is hand-finished, fettled and inspected at our Devon workshop.

At Salamander Stoves, we recognised the need for a cast iron stove with a smaller footprint, and the demand for a small stove which offered the same benefits as a large, efficient wood burner. Our Hobbit multi-fuel stove achieves this, presenting itself as a high quality, compact, yet affordable stove, whilst being traditionally and elegantly styled to fit with every style of decor and interior design.

Designing stoves for over 10 years…

Although the Hobbit was originally designed to fit small household fireplaces in order to avoid removing original Victorian and Edwardian tiles or cast fire surrounds, due to the continued growth of the small spaces movement over the last 10 years, our stove has found its home in a diverse array of incredible small spaces.

We are extremely proud to now have over 10,000 of our little stoves installed in small household fireplaces, cabins, horse boxes, shepherds’ huts, canal boats, camper vans and more, providing light and warmth to thousands of tiny homes and dwellings! Our Hobbit stove is now Eco Design approved, which makes it suitable for any installation that’s going to take place after the 1st of January 2022. You can visit our Eco Design page to read more about this release.

To make the installation process easier, we’ve also designed a wide range of flue kits which are specifically tailored to each of these different structures. These installation kits include everything you will need to fit your small stove, and most of our flue parts are manufactured by Midtherm.

After the success of our Hobbit multi-fuel stove, we developed our larger Little Range Cook Stove, which offers the same benefits as our classic Hobbit stove combined with a substantially increased cooking potential.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your unique project and to find out how you could include a Hobbit stove or Little Range Cook Stove in the design of your house or tiny home! We also offer a bespoke flue consultancy service free of charge, so you are more than welcome to get in touch if you would like any advice regarding what flue parts you will require or how your flue system should be arranged.

Also, don’t forget to check out our range of case studies to discover how other people have incorporated our small stoves into the design of their project!

Our Hobbit Stove Has Been Fitted!

"We had a Hobbit stove fitted this week by Alex Reay from Flues and Fires, and I just wanted to get in touch to say it is AMAZING and we love it! We have a lovely cast iron tiled fireplace which I was desperate not to lose when we installed a small wood burning stove, but until I found the Hobbit on Google, everyone told me it would be impossible to keep the fire surround. The Hobbit is perfect - not only does it fit very snugly, but it looks fantastic and the blue door complements the tiles very nicely. We are sitting enjoying a fire now and absolutely loving it! Thanks for creating such an amazing product."

The Best Stove Ever!

"It’s the best stove ever! It’s easy to light, very efficient, burns anthracite and stays in overnight (ours has been in for three weeks now). It even keeps a kettle of water at the ready for a cuppa! What more can I say, we love it! Just the thing to make our Yorkshire home cosy, and the cat loves it too!"

First Small Stove Installation

Was looking for a small stove for my first self-install. Found Mark very helpful. Knowledgeable, friendly service. Stove burns well and generates lots more heat than the previous open fire. What is not to like?

A Huge Thank You!

"Dear Mark and Gill, a huge thank you for designing and making the Hobbit stove! We had two different London-based fireplace companies tell us that we simply had to knock out the old cast iron and tile fireplace to fit in a woodburning stove, and that there was no other option! Then we found you online. We are delighted with our little Hobbit, which swallows up logs and kicks out a good amount of heat. Perfect for the winter! I will also be writing to the London-based fireplace companies to put the Hobbit on their radar. Best wishes."

It's Brilliant!

"Hi Mark, here's a photo of the Hobbit installed in my Yorkist grate. It’s brilliant! It also throws out a lot more heat than the grate did."

The Little Hobbit Has Stepped Up To The Challenge!

"We just wanted to say how impressed and how much of a life saver our little Hobbit has been! It was fitted a few months ago in our holiday home in Rhu, Scotland, which is a large open plan conversion in a Victorian house. This weekend our boiler decided it was not going to play ball. The little Hobbit has stepped up to the challenge, providing heat to a very large area, about twenty eight foot by twenty four foot with a high ceiling of about eighteen foot, keeping the room reasonably warm, warm enough for us not to use cardigans!”

Very Pleased With Our Hobbit!

"We are very pleased with the stove and think it looks great! We restored our fireplace (it was hidden under plaster!) and the whole look is better than we hoped!"

Our Pride And Joy!

"What a fantastic fireplace with the beautiful Hobbit stove. It fits perfectly into the small space and throws out a lot of heat. Here's a photo of our little stove, now our pride and joy and much admired by all who see and feel the warmth."

"Just to bid you all a Happy New Year and to say how much we’re enjoying having our Hobbit stove! It was easy to fit with the help of your excellent ‘how to’ videos and we’re just awaiting our inspection by building control for the certification. The Hobbit has fitted neatly into the hearth vacated by the old gas back boiler (with a little cosmetic rendering) and never ceases to surprise us how much heat it can deliver to the point that the new condenser boiler is having an easy life, thereby saving us on gas bills too! Everyone loves having a ‘real fire’ in the living room."
