  • What's the difference between the Hobbit stove and the Hobbit SE?

    Both stoves have exactly the same measurements, and they offer the same features. There are just a few key differencebetween the two:
    1. The SE stands for Smoke Exempt, and it is the DEFRA exempt model of our stove that can be used to burn wood in Smoke Control Areas here in the UK. You can find out if you live in one of these areas by contacting your local council.
    2. The SE has a small, constant supply of air going into the firebox of the stove. This is to comply with regulations, and it just means that the SE is slightly harder to shut down overnight, as it will burn the fuel slightly quicker. We do not recommend shutting the stove down for prolonged periods of time, as this will lead to more soot or tarry deposits forming in the flue.
    3. The SE can be installed into a 5″ or a 6″ diameter chimney liner, whereas the standard stove can only operate with a 6″ liner. If you reside in an older property which has a narrow chimney, then you may find that you need to purchase the SE model so that you can use a 5″ liner.
  • Do your stoves come with everything I will need?

    All of our stoves come with a set of firebricks, a baffle, a centre grate, fire bars, four little legs, an ash pan, and our multi-tool, which is used for operating the doors and the air controls.

    A collar is also included with the stove, which can be used to connect into your chosen flue parts. Please note that our stove does not come with flue parts included.

    We have designed a wide variety of installation kits that have been tailored to suit a range of different structures. These are available at an additional cost, and the price will ultimately vary depending on the unique specifics of your structure.

  • How can I install one of your stoves into my chosen structure?

    We have designed a wide variety of installation kits that have been tailored to suit a range of different structures. These are available at an additional cost, and the price will ultimately vary depending on the unique specifics of your structure.

    We also offer a bespoke flue consultancy service, free of charge. If you can provide us with the following information, then we can advise on what flue parts you will need:

    • Some photos of the inside and the outside of your structure.
    • The floor to ceiling height of where the stove is going to be sited.
    • Whether or not the stove is going to be sited on a raised platform, or our stand option.
    • Your roofing material.
    • The thickness of your roof.
    • The pitch of your roof.
    • The overall height of the building.
  • How do I look after my stove?

    In order to prolong the life of your stove and to ensure it provides you with many years of warmth and enjoyment, we recommend following the advice below:

    • Arrange for your stove and chimney to be swept at least once a year by a HETAS-registered chimney sweep. You can click here to find your nearest recommended chimney sweep.
    • Use a magnetic stove thermometer to ensure that you are operating the appliance within the correct temperature range.
    • To get your small wood stove looking like new again, why not paint your stove or give it a polish.

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!"

Lynn and Andrew, West Yorkshire

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?


Small Stove Review 15

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."

Delighted With Our Hobbit Stove!

"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."

Just to Say Thank You!

"I just had a chat with Gill saying how delighted we are with our little Hobbit stove, and to also thank you both for your attention to detail and excellent customer service!"

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!"

Absolutely Delighted!

"Just had our Hobbit SE installed in our Victorian fireplace and we are absolutely delighted with the end result. We felt passionate about preserving our lovely fireplace!"

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."

Small Stove Review 11


"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."
