Wild With Nature

An incredible glamping site that spans over 750 acres of glorious Norfolk countryside.

Salamander Stoves The Hobbit Small Wood Burning Stove Installed Cowslip Shepherds Hut 1

Wild With Nature is set in the Breckland village of Shropham, in the heart of East Anglia. The glamping site is part of Manor Farm, which has been cared for by the Thornton family for 3 generations! It was once a traditional arable farm, but the current custodians – Andy, Rebecca, Rosie and Thomas – have worked tirelessly to restore the land and transition it away from its history of intensive farming.

This beautiful landscape has been transformed into a conservation area, helping to protect and replenish the local environment and its wildlife. The land is now a combination of farmland, wildflower meadows, lakes and woodlands!

Wild With Nature offer a number of luxurious shepherds’ huts that guests can stay in, and a Hobbit stove has been installed into Cowslip Hut, Barn Owl, the Orchid Hut, Mallard Hut, and the Pheasant Hut! The compact nature of our small wood burning stove is perfect for shepherds’ huts, and it makes efficient use of the limited amount of space that’s inherent to these structures.

The family began their glamping business venture back in 2018, when they ordered some stunning shepherds’ huts from The English Shepherd’s Hut Company. The farm now consists of two glamping sites, Honey Pot Meadow, which is designed for couples seeking a romantic escape, and The Lakes, where friends and families can get together in nature and let the children run wild!

The huts have also been made off-grid through the installation of solar panels and a borehole, which were added the following year. Both areas will allow you to relax, unwind and reconnect with the natural world.

The spacious huts have their own wood-fired hot tubs, and despite their tranquil and secluded location, Shropham is less than 2 hours away from London. There’s also a variety of market towns, which are all reachable within a 30 minute drive. There’s even a communal safari tent, outdoor pizza ovens, and you can also go kayaking or swimming in the lake!

After an adventurous day out, or some time spent lounging around this wonderful plot of land, you can hop back inside your shepherd’s hut and get toasty warm in front of our tiny wood burner. As the evening draws in, you can sit back and watch the flames flickering away, all from the comfort of your plush, king-size bed! Our stoves are perfect for small spaces, and the Hobbit stove enables guests to stay warm and cosy all-year-round, whether you book a staycation for spring, summer, autumn or winter.

If you’re wondering how you might be able to incorporate our small wood burning stove into the design of your own shepherd’s hut, then there’s a few bits of information worth checking out. Firstly, you can find out more about the Hobbit stove here, and it’s also worth taking a look at this document to see how much space you will need to have around your small wood stove.

Our heat shield option is also very useful for shepherd’s hut installations, as it considerably reduces the clearances that you will need to have around your small wood burner! Once you’ve decided on what stove extras and colours you want to go for, why not take a look at the two installation kits that we’ve designed specifically for shepherds’ huts.

If you’re still unsure as to which flue kit you will need, then please feel free to contact us, as we offer a bespoke flue consultancy service free of charge!

Make sure you also check out the Wild With Nature website to find out more. You can contact them or visit the listings for their huts on Canopy and Stars to book your stay 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."
