The Dartmoor Baker

The Dartmoor Baker


If autumn is starting to bite, there are few things more cosy than a wood burner - and we’ve found one that’s stylish and made right here in Devon

There are many, many things designed to keep you warm; cardies, sheepskin booties and real fires. But how about something that will warm you and toast your crumpets. Enter Dean Forge’s Dartmoor Baker – a quirky take on a traditional wood burner with a compact oven. As well as keeping you toasty, goodies such as crumpets, cookies and even pizzas can be cooked in your own front room – and who doesn’t like the sound of that?

The Dartmoor Baker, based on the successful Dartmoor Stove Range, has an integral oven above the fire box, which utilises heat from the fire to cook, bake or warm food

The father-and-son team behind the , Michael and Simon Chew, are so proud of their Devon heritage that Dean Forge’s entire handcrafted range is named after Devon beauty spots. The Dartmoor Baker adds to the existing Hembury, Croft, Huccaby, Foxworthy, Herrick, Junior and Clearburn ranges.

“The idea to incorporate an oven into our traditional wood burner came from wanting to bring that sociable sharing-style of cooking of barbecues and campfires inside the home,” explains Simon. “The stove is compact and will sit nicely into any living space. In my home we love toasting crumpets, whilst enjoying the heat of the fire. It is also great for hot pots, as we can leave the dish to slow cook whilst we are out on a family walk; then it’s ready on our return, once we have worked up an appetite.” w

Available in a range of colours (I rather like Dory Blue and Firecracker) prices start at £1,095. There are three models and a multifuel option available.
