Hobbit ECO Small Stove


The Hobbit ECO Small Stove

Hobbit ECO Small Stove

The Hobbit ECO Small Stove is a small cast iron multi-fuel stove that is able to burn wood, coal or eco logs and fully complies with the new Eco Design regulations, which makes it suitable for any installations after the 1st January 2022. Eco design 2022 is the stove industry’s response to the DEFRA Clean Air Strategy which aims to improve air quality and reduce emissions and pollution.

Our stove is specifically designed for installations where the space for a stove might be more limited, and this makes our stove the ideal choice for small fireplaces, where larger stoves simply won’t fit.

Unlike the requirements for DEFRA Exemption, which only applies to smokeless zones the ECODesign regulations will apply to the whole country, so no matter where a new stove is to be installed it must comply with EcoDesign.

The Tiny Hobbit is a 4.1kW stove and it comes with a 5 year warranty when you register your stove with us.

The Hobbit Eco and the Hobbit Eco SE are finished in a flat black colourway as standard.

EcoDesign 2022 Small Hobbit Stove
Our Hobbit Eco stove is now available, and it has been independently certificated at KIWA UK, in Cheltenham, so that it meets the new set of higher standards that are now required for wood stoves. Our little Hobbit Eco stove has an efficiency of over 80%, and it releases far fewer particulate and gas emissions into the air, making it a much more environmentally friendly heat source!

If you are planning to install your Hobbit wood stove after the 1st of January 2022, and if you require your installation to be compliant with current UK building regulations, then you will require the Eco Design version of our little Hobbit stove. The compact size of our Hobbit Eco stove allows for any ornate period features of an older cast iron fire surround to be retained, enabling a small, inefficient open fire to be replaced with ease.

The main improvement in the design of our Hobbit stove has been to incorporate a new, pre-heated tertiary air system. This burns up any particulates and gases much more effectively, and it also improves the amount of secondary combustion that takes place at the top of the firebox.

We have been able to increase the efficiency of our small multi-fuel stove to over 81%, and we have also reduced the particulate and gas emissions to a level which is below the new, more stringent, Eco Design levels, which now have to be met.

The Hobbit Eco Improvements

The cleaner burning and enhanced secondary combustion of our stove has also improved the efficiency of the glass airwash, which will now provide you with a greatly enhanced view of your fire whilst the flames flicker away! The new air system arrangement also means that all of the air flow controls are now at the front of the stove, to improve usability. This is incredibly useful if you’re going to be installing your small stove into a particularly tight space!

The new tertiary air and improved secondary air are both controlled at the front of the Hobbit Eco stove, using the two sliders beneath the footplate, but the primary air is still operated in the same way. When the stove is in operation, the new air system provides you with much greater control over the burn-rate of your fire and the pattern of the flames! And greater control means greater efficiency and improved fuel consumption of your tiny wood burner.

The design of the main grate has also been improved to maintain the multi-fuel capability of our small Hobbit Eco wood stove. Plus, we’ve also added new ash direction plates, which allows for cleaner and more controlled de-ashing of the stove when you go to clear the remnants of your fire.

The overall dimensions of the Eco Design models are exactly the same as the original Hobbit stove.

Hobbit Eco Fits all small spaces!

You can still incorporate all of the same stove options which are currently available! The Eco Design Hobbit stove is now available to order. Choose between the standard Hobbit Eco for more rural areas, or the Hobbit Eco SE if you’re installing your stove in a smoke controlled zone within the UK.

The Hobbit Eco tiny stove comes in a matte black colour as standard, however, our stove is sure to compliment any style of décor or interior design, as we offer a broad range of additional stove options as well as the unique ability to customise your stove with your own choice of colours.

The Hobbit’s excellent, enhanced performance combined with its traditional, yet elegant styling, and its superb value for money, has led to our little stove finding its home in a wide range of amazing small spaces and tiny homes.

Our small stove has provided light and warmth to canal boats, treehouses, yurts, bell tents, glamping pods, campervan conversions, horse boxes, shepherds’ huts, garden rooms, summer houses, luxury cabins and retreats, workshops, caravans, vardo wagons and more! We’ve also designed a range of different flue kits which make it easy to install our small stoves in almost any of these spaces, and most of our high quality flue parts are manufactured by Midtherm.

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."
