One of our favourite optional extras is our wood burning stove, which can be installed on the veranda (from £486) or inside (£810) of your hut. Each is built to the highest quality, complete with a slate stand, a heat reflective back stand, a flue, silicone flashing, and a cowl. As we’re sure you’ll agree, a stove adds a touch of traditional charm that really compliments the contemporary style of our huts.
A wood burning stove is perfect for families who are considering a hut for “glamping” holidays and fancy replacing a traditional campfire or camping stove with a more reliable option. If you’re looking to a shepherd’s hut as a quirky alternative to a typical summer house, being able to light a warming fire will make for some seriously relaxing evenings — either alone, with family or while entertaining guests. What’s more, a stove is an impressive feature that will help to lure in guests if you hope to set up your own boutique B’n’B business!
The benefits of a wood burning stove go beyond simply providing warmth and adding to the aesthetic of your hut. They can also be used to cook a variety of different meals! To demonstrate our stoves’ true capabilities and to help you get the most out of your own, we’re going to share a handful of our favourite recipes.
Our first delicious recipe is a simple mushroom and chorizo omelette. It’s the perfect recipe to demonstrate how you can use the stove’s top as well as its underside, which makes a surprisingly powerful grill (if you’re planning on following the recipe, be sure you use a pan that will fit comfortably beneath your stove). The stove can also handle some of your cooking waste – simply throw your eggshells straight into the fire!
The recipe itself is highly customisable. Try adding some spring onions, or swap the chorizo for a variety of vegetables if you’re vegetarian. Serve with a nice slab of bread and butter, and a steaming cup of tea!
- 2 eggs
