Salamander Stoves The Hobbit Small Wood Burning Stove For Shepherds Huts Hannam And Taylor 1

Richard and Millie are the father and daughter team behind Hannam & Taylor, a family-run shepherd’s hut company that’s tucked away on the edge of Windsor Great Park, just outside of London. Together, they have over 35 years of combined experience in the events construction sector!

Richard and Millie locally source the finest sustainable materials, to ensure that each customer has an eco-friendly shepherd’s hut. Every bespoke shepherd’s hut that leaves the workshop is built to the highest quality, and the huts are finished to impeccable standards by their team of talented craftsmen and women.

Hannam & Taylor shepherds’ huts are the ideal glamping space for guests to stay in, but they also work wonders as a boutique hotel extension, or as a home working space in your back garden.

One of the options that you can add to the build of your shepherd’s hut is our Hobbit stove! Our small wood burning stove will ensure that you and your guests can stay warm and cosy in this delightful space all-year-round. When it’s time to kick back, relax, and unwind from the day, nothing beats lighting a fire inside your small wood burner and watching the flames gently flickering away. 

You can read more about Hannam & Taylor’s shepherds’ huts here.

Installing a small wood burning stove into your shepherd’s hut will breathe life into this space, even in the cold depths of winter! If you load up our small wood stove with some kiln dried logs or briquettes before jumping in bed, you can still wake up to a good pile of toasty embers in the morning. All you’ll have to do is roll out of bed and refuel your tiny wood burner to get a roaring fire going again!

If you already have a shepherd’s hut and would like to get a Hobbit stove installed into your structure, then make sure you check out our wide range of installation kits. We have specifically designed two installation kits for shepherds’ huts, and although these structures can vary in size, these flue kits have been tailored to suit most shepherds’ huts. 

If you think your hut might differ slightly, then please do not hesitate to contact us, as we offer a bespoke flue consultancy service free of charge. You can also visit our page of authorised dealers to find your nearest Hobbit stove stockist and installer, who will be able to advise you on how you can incorporate our small wood burning stove into the design of your shepherd’s hut.

If you’re going to be installing the stove yourself, then this document will show you how much space you will need to have around your Hobbit stove. Our tiny wood burner will also need to sit on a non-combustible hearth that’s at least 12mm thick, and you will need to maintain at least 225mm of space from the front of the stove to the front of your hearth.

If you’re looking to install the Hobbit stove into a corner of the room, then this document will show you a good example of how this can be done. Our heat shield option is also a popular extra when it comes to installing our small wood burning stove into a shepherd’s hut, as it dramatically reduces the clearances that you will need to maintain.

Make sure you also check out the Hannam and Taylor website to find out more about their beautiful huts! Enquire now to order yours today!

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."
