Justin Shepherd’s Hut

Justin is a beautiful shepherd’s hut that sits on the bank of the Grantham Canal, a Site of Special Scientific Interest overlooking the Vale of Belvoir!

Salamander Stoves The Hobbit Small Wood Burning Stove For Shepherds Huts Justin 1

This wonderful little shepherd’s hut combines luxurious touches with an environmental ethos. The hut has been made from tin, as well as various finds from around the farm, and the kitchen is lined with gorgeous reclaimed wooden work tops. Justin also benefits from underfloor heating, and the electricity at the cabin is powered by solar panels! 

Two people can easily get a good night’s sleep in the king-size bed, and there’s a single pull-out bed in case you have a little one staying with you. There are two other huts that guests can stay at on the site, but each cabin is tucked away on its own secluded plot. 

This amazing glamping business is run by Sarah, whose family have been farming land in Plungar for over 400 years! Sarah has some incredible knowledge of the area, so she’ll have no problem recommending some great mountain biking trails, cafés, or local pubs.

After a chilly day out or a dip in the open-water swimming lake at Six Hills, you can return back to the hut, where our Hobbit stove will be ready and waiting to get you warm and cosy again! There really isn’t a better way to relax than by reading a good book, playing a board game, or enjoying a glass of wine whilst you watch the flames flicker away in our small wood burning stove.

During the long summer evenings, you can make the most of the outdoor area that’s just next to the hut. This is a great little place to enjoy some al fresco dining, or to take a dip in the wood-fired hot tub! After dashing back inside the hut, you can warm up again in front of the cosy glow of our small wood burner before the night draws in.

As you can see, it can get quite cold and snowy at the hut! Despite the compact size of our Hobbit stove, it still kicks out plenty of heat, so you’re guaranteed to stay toasty warm whenever you decide to book your stay. Whether you decide to visit in spring, summer, autumn, or winter, our small wood burning stove enables this space to be enjoyed all-year-round.

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 make sure you take a look at the two installation kits that we’ve designed specifically for shepherds’ huts!

If you think any of the flue parts might need changing in order for the flue kit to suit your particular structure, then please feel free to contact us, as we offer a bespoke flue consultancy service free of charge.

You can drop us an email with some photos or drawings of your hut, along with some clear measurements, and we will then be able to able to advise you on what flue parts you’ll need and how they can be arranged. You can also take a look through the wide range of other installation kits that we’ve designed, which can be used to install your Hobbit stove into a variety of different settings.

When it comes to installing our small wood burning stove into a shepherd’s hut, it’s worth checking out our corner installation document to get a good idea of how you can utilise this space. Adding heat shields to your Hobbit stove is also a great idea if you’re installing your stove into an especially small space, as this stove option will dramatically reduce the distances that you will need to comply with.

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."
