The Best Glamping Stoves For Your Accommodation.

With staycations and UK holidays on the riselots of accommodation owners are looking for something extra to help their place stand out from the crowd. While hot tubs, barbecues and swimming pools have their place, they’re not always suited to the temperamental British weather. For a truly transformative addition to your UK accommodation, small glamping stoves are the perfect accessory, and our Hobbit stove is the ideal candidate!

Glamping stoves bring warmth and rustic flair to all kinds of Airbnbs, shepherds’ huts, yurts, canal boats and a whole host of other holiday hideaways. Here’s why they’ll make a great addition to your accommodation – and how you can choose a fantastic little stove for your small space!


The Hobbit stove is the perfect tiny wood stove for glamping spaces, and as you can see, the guests at Westfield House Farm absolutely love using our small wood burning stove! Make sure you check out their website to book a stay in one of their beautiful shepherds’ huts!

Why Do You Need A Small Wood Stove For Your Glamping Accommodation?

A small wood burning stove can transform a camping experience into a genuine adventure holiday. There’s something special about lighting a fire in your stove – whether to toast marshmallows, warm chilly hands, or both – that brings a cosy, rustic feel to a trip. As a result, your guests are sure to love the inclusion of a tiny wood burner in their accommodation.

Since summer holidays in the UK don’t always guarantee sunshine and toasty temperatures, a small wood burning stove is also ideal for keeping guests warm (and happy!) whatever the weather. From summer washouts to chilly winter nights, your small wood burner will make sure your guests stay cosy, even if they’re braving a glamping holiday in February! As a result, bringing a small wood stove into your accommodation makes it a year-round option, meaning more guests and higher income.

A small log burner can also add value to your accommodation. Guests typically expect to pay a little more for places with great amenities, meaning you can potentially charge more per stay. It won’t take long before your small stove begins to pay for itself!

What To Consider When Buying A Glamping Stove

It’s clear that both you and your guests can benefit from installing a small wood burning stove into your yurt, a shepherd’s hut or any other small space. But it’s important to do your research before you buy, so that you can find the perfect little stove that’s fit for purpose.

Size & Space

You’ll need to measure up your space to see what size stove would be best for your accommodation. Yurts and shepherds’ huts will benefit from quite a small wood burning stove, as this will maximise storage and living space for your guests, while still giving off plenty of warmth.

Smoke Controlled Areas

If your accommodation is based in a smoke-controlled area, you’ll need to check your stove is approved by the Department For Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in order to burn wood. You can burn smokeless fuels in smoke-controlled areas, but you’ll need to ensure your guests observe the rules too.

Ventilation & Installation

In order to comply with building regulations and to avoid fire hazards, it’s a good idea to have your small wood stove fitted by a HETAS approved installer. They’ll be able to tell you the best way to install your stove so that your place is ventilated properly – which will bring peace of mind to you and your guests.

How To Choose The Best Glamping Stove For Your Place

At Salamander Stoves, our small wood burning stoves are designed with cosy nooks and glamping spaces in mind. As a result, they’re built to give your Airbnb or glamping accommodation that rustic, glowy feeling. Here’s a rundown of our range of small stoves, and the types of accommodation they work best in.

The Hobbit Stove & The Hobbit SE

  • Size: 302mm (w) x 272mm (d) x 465mm (h)
  • Perfect for: glamping pods, shepherds’ huts, yurts, canal boats, cabins, summer houses, sheds and other small spaces

Our flagship Hobbit stove fits perfectly into all kinds of nooks and crannies, making it the ideal glamping stove! It can also be positioned in an open space, and it will heat a surprisingly large room. Our small multi-fuel stove can burn wood, eco logs or coal, and its cast iron body will continue to radiate plenty of warmth after your fire has gone out. It maximises space for living and storage, while providing an efficient burn with plenty of heat generation. It’s sure to make your space toasty warm in no time at all! The standard version comes in classic matte black, but you can also customise the colours to make your Hobbit stove fit the vibe of your accommodation, from quirky houseboat to traditional shepherd’s hut. You can also customise your small wood burning stove with a range of additional options, and we stock a wide range of stove accessories to help complete your glamping space!

If you live in a smoke-controlled area, then make sure you check out the Hobbit SE. This stove is just as compact, but it’s also DEFRA-approved, so you can still burn wood in this small stove if you live in a smoke controlled zone.

Little Range Cook Stove

The Little Range Cook Stove

  • Size: 715mm (w) x 400mm (d) x 630mm (h)
  • Perfect for: cabins, glamping pods, yurts, shepherds’ huts, mobile homes, and other self-catering spaces

The Little Range Cook Stove is made with the same ethos as our Hobbit stove – a practical stove that’s designed with space in mind – but with one big difference. It includes a purpose-built oven and hotplate, so that your guests can cook up a storm from the comfort of their accommodation. It’s perfect for making pizzas, fry-ups, and even baking bread. It’s a little larger than the Hobbit stove, but it’s fantastic for adding a self-catering option for glampers. You can discover a huge range of other things that you can cook on your Little Range by checking out our cook book, or by browsing some of our blog posts!

Help Your Guests Make The Most Of Your Small Wood Burning Stove

A basketful of fresh dry logs is the perfect invitation to your guests to get a fire going. That said, not all of your guests will be confident with using your new small wood burner – so it’s a helpful touch to leave them a brief how-to guide so that they can whip up a roaring flame with ease.

Small touches like this are sure to be remembered by your guests – meaning they’re more likely to leave you great reviews and encourage other people to visit your glamping space. There are tonnes of ways that a small wood burning stove can improve your guests’ glamping experience – so find a Salamander Stoves stockist near you to find out more about our trusty little stoves! You can also check out our case studies to see how other people have incorporated a small wood burning stove into the design of their small space.

If you’d like more information about our tiny wood burners, or if you have any questions about installing your small wood stove, then please feel free to contact us! We’ve designed a wide range of installation kits to make it easier to install your small wood burning stove into your chosen structure, and if you’re not sure your stove can be fitted into your tiny dwelling, then we also offer a bespoke flue consultancy service free of charge.

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."

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."
