Brockloch Treehouse

Brockloch Eco Retreat

small stove treehouse 9

This extraordinary off-grid treehouse was designed by Sam Booth, the founder of a Scottish-based company called Echo Living, who specialise in the design and construction of sustainable tiny homes. The property was commissioned by Brockloch Eco Retreats, and you can book this treehouse cabin as a place to stay on the edge of their 190 acre farm in South West Scotland! This spectacular off-grid woodland retreat is nestled amongst the trees and sits gently above a beautiful meadow of bluebells, and it was even featured on Channel 4’s ‘George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces’ in December 2014!

We were incredibly proud to have our small wood burning stove incorporated into the design of this magical treetop dwelling. Our little wood burner enables guests to stay warm and cosy throughout the harsh Scottish Winter, and the dancing flames of a natural fire provide an otherworldly feeling to the cabin, especially when it’s filled with the soft glow of candlelight. Here, an almond coloured finish has also been applied to our tiny wood burner, which allows it to seamlessly match the cabin’s interior design. Although our small stove looks great in a wide range of interiors, we also offer you the ability to customise your stove with a range of additional options and colours which you can explore here!

The treehouse was designed as a cosy, romantic hideaway for 2 people, and this has certainly been achieved with the property’s secluded, intimate location and the kaleidoscope of tiny windows that present visitors with over 50 miniature framed views of the surrounding woodland and landscape. This adorable woodland dwelling also has 2 large skylights, so you can huddle up in front of a warm, crackling fire in our little wood burner whilst you lay in bed and gaze up at the treetops and the starry night sky! There’s even a skylight above the bathtub, so you can also enjoy any stargazing in the bath if you fancy it! We particularly like the light-hearted and playful touch that the dangling steel bucket provides, which is filled with stones and functions as an innovative counterweight for the shutter!

The cabin is off-grid and it’s powered by solar panels as well as our small wood burning stove, which can also be added to the cabin’s list of eco credentials. Our mini wood burner uses a renewable energy source and actually improves the sustainability of your property, which you can read more about here! To add to this, the cabin was ingeniously designed to conform with the planning regulations of a caravan! The pods meet the same dimensions and building criteria which are required for a caravan, whereas the larch pole platform was submitted as a separate planning application.

In addition to being featured in George Clarke’s programme, this stunning little treehouse was awarded with a Commendation in the Dumfries & Galloway Design Awards. Plus, it’s made an appearance in several newspaper articles and it’s also been voted as one of the best places to stay in Europe.

Sam Booth and the rest of the team at Echo Living have completed some seriously impressive tiny home projects, so make sure you contact them if you need a tiny home designed for you! You can also visit the Brockloch Eco Retreat website here to book your own escape at this magical off-grid woodland retreat!

If you already have a cabin (or a more out-there form of dwelling) that you’re looking to install a small wood burning stove in, then make sure you visit our page of stove installation kits. We offer a flue kit package which is specifically designed for small cabins, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for then we also offer a free bespoke flue consultancy service, so please do not hesitate to get in contact with us if you’re at all unsure about what flue components you might require or how they should be arranged!

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."

Delighted With Our Hobbit Stove!

"Mark, Gill, thank you for your assistance, we are delighted with our Hobbit! I fired it up this evening after taking all afternoon making a register plate to fit the opening."

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!"

Absolutely Delighted!

"Just had our Hobbit SE installed in our Victorian fireplace and we are absolutely delighted with the end result. We felt passionate about preserving our lovely fireplace!"

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."
