The Yurt At Leighton Hall

Our small wood burning stove has been installed in this beautiful yurt, which is perched on the Leighton Hall Estate in Shropshire!

The Hobbit small wood burning stove installed in a yurt at Leighton Hall 1

This incredible hand-painted Mongolian yurt sits at the very end of an arboretum in the grounds of Leighton Hall, a grade 1 listed property that was built between 1850 and 1856! The yurt has been decorated with the utmost care and attention to detail, and it boasts some breathtaking views across the surrounding parkland and the Shropshire Hills.

This fabulous little bolthole is tucked away in its own secluded spot, which makes it a fantastic getaway! There’s also an abundance of wildlife in the local area, so you’ll be in for a chance at spotting some fallow deer, foxes, badgers, otters, herons or kingfishers!

On a warm summer’s day you can relax under the shade of the trees, and when the evening draws in you can enjoy a hot bath on the decking, overlooking the stunning countryside. You can even whip up a barbecue over the Kadai fire bowl and grill!

We were extremely pleased to see that our Hobbit stove was incorporated into the design of this spectacular rural retreat! Our small wood burning stove enables guests to stay warm and cosy, so you can enjoy your stay during any time of the year! Throughout the colder seasons, you can stroll across the fields to the village pub, which is just a five minute walk away, and our tiny wood stove will be ready and waiting to warm you up again when you return to the yurt.

This hideaway is the perfect place to switch off and unwind from the pressures of everyday life. You can start your day by lighting the Hobbit stove and reading a book or playing some board games on the kantha rugs, before wandering outside to watch the mist rising up through the valley! When night falls, you can watch the flames flickering away in our small stove, lay out on the king-size bed and enjoy some stargazing through the transparent roof cover of your cosy little den!

The yurt has some wonderful natural surroundings, there’s some neighbouring longhorn cattle and multiple locations for some wild swimming, which are just a short walk along a river footpath. Nevertheless, this dreamy dwelling has plenty of luxurious touches! There’s a gorgeous outbuilding adjacent to the yurt, which houses a kitchen that’s complete with an oven and a hob, there’s a bathroom with hot running water, soft towels and a heated towel rail, and there’s even a lovely little dining area for when you want to eat indoors!

If you’re looking to incorporate one of our Hobbit multi-fuel stoves into your yurt, then why not take a look through the range of installation kits that we’ve designed, so that you can find a flue kit to suit your needs. If you’re at all unsure about what flue parts you will need, or how these components should be arranged, then please feel free to contact us, as we offer a bespoke flue consultancy service free of charge! You can also visit our authorised dealers page to easily arrange a site visit with your a recommended installer.

If you would like a small stove for your yurt which is a bit larger then our Hobbit stove, then make sure you check out our Little Range! The range is a 4.4kW multi-fuel stove, so it will kick out a bit more heat than our Hobbit stove. It also has a large stainless steel cooktop and a built in oven, which makes it perfect for some wood-fired cooking!

Both of our stoves can also be connected to a side boiler, so that you can power some hot water taps or a couple radiators. This makes our stoves the ideal choice for a more off-grid setting! You can find more details about our stoves and this type of set up under the technical data tab for the Little Range and the Hobbit stove, by visiting our help section, or by contacting us!

We’ve written a variety of articles, which will give you advice on cooking with your stove, installing one of our small wood burners into a range of different small spaces, and there’s some about off-grid living in general. There’s also our free cookbook that you can flick through and download as well!

Make sure you visit the listing for this amazing yurt on Canopy and Stars to find out more and 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."
