The Hobbit - a small cast iron stove with airwash and cleanburn. (Click Here for gallery of Hobbit pics)

We have carefully designed our little cast iron Hobbit stove to be a perfect blend of traditional styling and modern energy efficiency.

The Hobbit incorporates pre-heated secondary combustion technology, ensuring excellent clean burning and glass airwash efficiency.  The hobbit stove has been designed to ensure that the maximum energy potential of every log or lump of coal is harnessed.

Hobbit Installations can include a variety of scenarios and the compact nature of the stove makes it ideal for stove installations where space is restricted. The stove is a complimentary blend of traditional elegance and modern styling. The clean lines making it suitable for a wide range of decor situations. 


Many traditional small fireplaces, especially those converted to gas, need widening to incorporate a wood stove. The small footprint of the Hobbit means that this stove can be installed into a small fireplace without the need for remedial building works.

The Hobbit is a multi fuel stove that will deliver a reliable heat source with an accurate degree of control, economy and environmental awareness.
The components of each stove are made using the stove makers material of choice, cast iron. Steel bodied stoves may heat up faster but fail to retain the heat and will cool off quickly.

Hobbit Options & Accessories

You can further enhance the look of your Hobbit stove by either adding a touch of colour or raising the height by incorporating the stand. Below are details relating to the various options and accessories available.

Hobbit Colour

For a small additional charge we can finish your Hobbit in any of the large range of colours available in the STOVEBRIGHT heat resistant paint finishes. Please contact us to discuss your own individual colour requirements or specify these requirements when you order online  £36

Hobbit Coal Bars 

The Hobbit is a multi fuel stove and is happy burning both wood and coal. If however you predominantly burn coal then you may consider the option of having the 3 coal bar front grate as you are able to bank up the bed of coal to a higher level. £30

Hobbit Galley Rail

For Hobbits installed into shepherds huts, boats or vans then the addition of the galley rail is very helpful for preventing your kettle slipping off the top of your Hobbit stove when in transit. Chrome and Brass rails are available as a retro fit product or can be fitted here in our Devon stove workshop. £35

Hobbit Stand

Give your Hobbit a lift with the addition of the Hobbit stove stand. The stand increases the overall height of the stove to 617mm. It gives the Hobbit an even more contemporary look and is great for ‘freestanding’ installation applications. £96


Hobbit Back Boiler

Visit our back boiler page for detailed information about this useful addition to the standard Hobbit stove. The stainless steel boiler can be supplied for retro fit or installed in our workshop. It allows your Hobbit to heat either two rooms or supply hot water.




Customer Feedback

Hi Mark

Just to say our Salamander Hobbit SE is now up and running and we love it.

Our installer (who is very good and very busy), thought the stove was fantastic and kept telling us how wonderful it was, and saying everything had been thought about. He was more pleased with the Stove then we were!

Have enclosed a small photo, it looks fantastic in our small cottage and it is really easy to work. We found your youtube video and that really helped us 'stove novices' to work it quickly and efficiently.

Many thanks

Jan & Graham Thomson

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you (had some family issues)
The complete riddle set arrived with us the day after I phoned you. I installed it and it works perfectly.  Many thanks.  Your customer service, helpfulness and quality of product is second to none.  Please use us as a recommendation anytime ( pity our stove fitters didn't do the same!)
I attach a photo of The Hobbit working.  It fitted perfectly into the existing fireplace and looks wonderful!

For the attention of Mark Lawrence.
Good morning
First, Happy New Year - although belated!
The Hobbit is now installed and performs brilliantly!
The size is absolutely perfect for a Victorian fireplace, and was installed
with the minimum of fuss and disruption.
The whole process took a day.
The Hobbit was delivered exactly on time and precisely to the catalogue specification,
sizes and finish. In fact better than anticipated!
The packing was really heavy duty, and kept us happily occupied for some time
trying to break in!
Great company to do business with, and super product in the Hobbit!
We had it installed professionally and HETAS certified, in a day, and are happy
to recommend the installer for the Newark and Nottingham area, details as follows:

  Just to let you know that we have had the Hobbit Stove installed.  Really delighted with it.  Looks great in our existing fireplace.  Was installed by a local company.  Thank you again for supplying our Hobbit and all your help with the delivery.   We have quite a large, L shaped lounge and dining room and we don't need to use our central heating radiators in these rooms. Certainly will be recommending your product and the good service we received from Salamander to our friends and family.  

Kindest regards.
