Dunmore Shepherd’s Hut

A gorgeous shepherd’s hut in a stunning rural location, just below the Scottish border.

Hobbit Small Wood Burning Stove Installed In A Shepherds Hut Dunmore Northumberland 2

Dunmore is a traditional shepherd’s hut, which has been beautifully crafted from reclaimed oak. It’s located on Prendwick Farm, at the base of the Cheviot Hills, where it enjoys picturesque views of the surrounding countryside. This lovely little shepherd’s hut also sits within Northumberland’s Dark Sky Reserve, which makes it perfect for stargazing! The hut can be found down a dark trail, just off the farmhouse path, so that guests can enjoy maximum visibility of the stars throughout the night.

After a peaceful morning waking up to the sound of the birds, you can pack up a picnic and stroll outside, journeying up over the hills to Linhope Spout waterfall or the Breamish River. The hosts – Nicola and Jamie – own this hut as part of their Huts In The Hills business, and they’re just across the path if you need any recommendations for shops or places to visit.

When you return back to the hut, you can sit down and warm up in front of our Hobbit small wood burning stove! As the night draws in, you can huddle up and watch the flames flicker away, listening to the gentle crackling of the logs as they burn away into the night.

Despite its remote location, the hut is kitted out with a gas hob and oven, a walk-in shower with plenty of hot water, as well as a king-size bed and a flushing toilet. Although there’s no TV or WiFi in the hut, there’s plenty of 4G coverage, and several plugs for charging any of your devices.

If you’re wondering how you might be able to install your own Hobbit stove in a shepherd’s hut, then we think this slate hearth and fire surround match the colour of the stove and flue perfectly! This contrasts very nicely with the traditional wooden cladding, which has been left completely untouched.

If you’re at all unsure about what flue parts you will need for your installation, then it’s worth taking a look at the two different installation kits that we’ve designed for shepherds’ huts. Our shepherd’s hut flue kits are tailored to suit most installations, but if you think your installation might need to work a bit differently, then please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements, as we also offer a bespoke flue consultancy service free of charge!

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."
