Westfield House Farm comprises of four luxury en-suite shepherds’ huts and a farmhouse bed and breakfast, which are located just outside of Northumberland National Park. Each shepherd’s hut is kitted out with one of our Hobbit stoves, which means you’re guaranteed to be warm and cosy, and you can stay in their huts or farmhouse all-year-round! 

“Whether you prefer sundowners on long summer evenings, or cosy log burners and dark skies in the colder months, we’re sure you’ll enjoy an escape to Westfield whenever you visit.” – Westfield House Farm

Rural Northumberland has some magnificent dark skies that are perfect for stargazing, especially when the nights start to get a bit cooler and clearer. However, the team at Westfield go the extra mile! Each hut has its own annual ‘guide to the night sky’, and the field isn’t lit up with any artificial lights! We love the fact that they encourage their guests to get outside and enjoy the night skies, and our small wood burning stove is the perfect companion to return to when you hop back indoors to warm up.

“Although you can’t beat throwing open the windows and doors on sunny summer days, it’s equally as joyful on the coldest winter days when your Hobbit stove is roaring!” – Westfield House Farm

The huts are dotted around the perimeter of their own field, which gives their guests maximum opportunity to enjoy the surrounding countryside. The thought, care and attention to detail that’s been put into each hut is astounding – each hut is a beautifully decorated, but at the same time, they each have their own distinct character to offer.

The fields used to be grassland for grazing livestock, but ‘the hut field’ is now a hay meadow which is harvested once a year to allow the wildlife to flourish. All four shepherds’ huts were built to their bespoke design in the North of England by the Yorkshire Hut Company, who have been handcrafting shepherds’ huts for over 10 years! 

Each hut has electricity, hot running water, an en-suite toilet and shower, double-sized beds with crisp white linen, a dining table and chairs, a small, completely silent fridge, and a well equipped kitchen. Did we mention that each hut also has its own private wood-fired hot tub, campfire, and grill!? The owners of Westfield House Farm really have thought of everything you could need for the perfect glamping escape in the Northumberland countryside!

The huts also have gas ovens and hobs, but there’s still enough room to make a cup of tea or coffee, or even a hot chocolate, right on the top of our small wood stove!

Make sure you head over to their website to find out more and to book your stay today! They even plant one tree, or three hedging plants, right on their farm for every direct booking they receive!

You can also find their Instagram here, and you can click here to check out a case study that we’ve written about the Yorkshire Hut Company, where you can see our small wood burning stove installed in more of the beautiful huts that they’ve made!

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."
