The Stone Wall Hideaway

A gorgeous hand-crafted shepherd’s hut that's tucked away in rural Northern Ireland.

Salamander Stoves The Hobbit Small Wood Burning Stove Installed Into A Shepherds Hut The Stone Wall Hideaway 1

The Stone Wall Hideaway is nestled in a peaceful field near Portglenone, a small village in Northern Ireland. The shepherd’s hut enjoys stunning views over the surrounding countryside, and it’s the perfect place to stay if you’re looking for self-catering accommodation within the area.

This beautiful bolthole benefits from free on-site parking, a private hot tub, and a fully fenced private backyard, complete with a fire pit! The hut gets its name from the lovely stone wall that’s been built around the property, which is perfect for keeping the neighbouring cows at bay. It also boasts a modern and well-equipped interior, but the wooden cladding adds a cosy log cabin feel to this beautiful rural retreat.

Our Hobbit stove has been incorporated into the design of this incredible shepherd’s hut so that guests can stay warm and cosy whenever they decide to visit! Our small wood burning stove enables The Stone Wall Hideaway to be enjoyed all-year-round, and this space is hugely inviting in the depths of autumn and winter.

The hut provides a fantastic glamping spot where you can truly relax and take a well-deserved break. Even the simple task of crouching down and lighting a fire in our small wood stove is enough to escape the rush of everyday life!

If you’ve had a hot and hectic summer, then why not book a relaxing stay at The Stone Wall Hideaway, where you can see new sights and explore the treasures of Northern Ireland! When you arrive back at camp, you can put your feet up and enjoy a glass of wine or a hot drink whilst you watch the flames gently flicker away in our Hobbit stove. The ideal way to end your night after a dip in the hot tub!

Fitting a small wood burning into your glamping space is a great way to extend your letting season, whilst reducing your energy bills and creating a homely, welcoming atmosphere all at the same time! If you’re wondering how you could install a Hobbit stove or a Hobbit SE into your shepherd’s hut, then make sure you take a look through our small stove installation kits!

Our shepherd’s hut flue kits have been specifically designed for these types of structures, and they are perfect for installing our small wood burning stove into almost any hut. However, if you think that the flue parts included in these kits might need to be adjusted to fit the unique specifics of your hut, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

We offer a bespoke flue consultancy service free of charge, so if you’re at all unsure as to what flue parts you would need to install our small wood stove, then we will gladly advise on your installation. All we need is an email from you with some photos and measurements of the inside of your hut.

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."
