Renault Master Conversion

A stunning hand-crafted home on wheels

small wood burning stove in a renault master conversion 5

This amazing campervan conversion was completed by Wild Van, which is run by Dee & Simon – a couple of UK-based van dwellers who love to create hand-built campervan conversions. Their work ranges from micro-campers to larger, full-time live-in vans, and this particular campervan conversion was made for a couple called Mark and Catherine, who are garden design and landscaping experts. Their company is called Lucy Frank Garden Design, and you can check out their Instagram page here. Together, with Dee and Simon, they came up with a layout which is both spacious and stylish.

Our Hobbit stove sits at the heart of the campervan, keeping it warm and cosy. They also customised their Hobbit stove with the perfect choice of colours. The stove paint that they chose matches the wood work really well, and it goes brilliantly with the interior design of the cabin. Their choice of colours really makes our small wood burner look and feel like part of the campervan, and they’ve gone the extra mile by creating a neat little storage area, so that a pile of logs can be kept just beneath the stove.

Here, our Hobbit stove has been equipped with our small stove heat shield option, which enables you to fit your small wood stove into a much tighter space. This is perfect if you’re going to be installing your small wood burning stove into a campervan, a shepherd’s hut, a horse box or a canal boat, any situation really where space is at a premium! If you want to read more about this option, then we’ve also written an article about how much room you should have around your small wood burner, and you can also click here to see how you can customise your own small wood burning stove!

Installing a tiny wood stove into your campervan will enable you to work, sleep, travel or live in your campervan all year round. You can also cook on your stovetop very easily, especially if you add our stainless steel cooktop option to your stovetop. The stainless steel insert can be easily removed for cleaning, and it will also help to prevent your stovetop from getting greasy, or from becoming scratched over time from the abrasion of your pans.

If you fancy getting stuck into some wood-fired cooking, then we have a range of recipes in the cooking section of our blog. We’ve also put together a free cookbook, which will provide you with a huge variety of recipes that you can make on your Hobbit stove or Little Range! Make sure you also check out our cast iron enamelled cookware set, which is fantastic for a wide range of stovetop cooking. If it’s raining outside then you can even huddle up inside your campervan and toast 4 marshmallows in front of the fire – completely hands-free – with our T1000 stovetop toasting fork!

The built-in awning enables you to sit outside in the fresh air, whatever the weather, and there’s plenty of storage space for lots of board games! This camper also has an impressive electrical setup, so you’ll have no problem if you just want to sit back and watch some films in the comfort of this cosy little den.

If you’re at all unsure as to how you might be able to install one of our small wood burning stoves into your van, then we’ve designed two different flue kits for fitting a stove into a van! If you have any questions, then please feel free to contact us. We offer a bespoke flue consultancy service free of charge, so if you send us some photos of your van, along with some measurements, then we’ll be able to advise you on what flue parts you’ll need and how they should be arranged.

You can read more about this conversion on the Wild Van website, and you can click here to book your stay in this beautiful adventure-mobile with Quirky Campers!

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."

"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!"

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."
