Most people like to heat their yurt using a
woodburning stove. Life in the mongolian ger centres
around the stove. In this country the stove heats the
yurt, warms the kettle and provides a a focus for cosy
As with all tents, it
is dangerous to light fires inside, do so at your own
risk. Take care!
We do not sell yurt stoves, but have been looking
at and using wood buring stoves for yurts for many years.
Here are the stoves and stove makers we have found to
be most suitable for yurt use.
Four Dog Stoves
I believe these are the best yurt stoves available,
they are portable, designed for use in tents, they can
provide hot water and folding side ovens are great for
baking bread, potatoes, bicuits etc. They can be ordered
from Don Kevilus in Minnesota USA at www.fourdog.com.

Stoves The smallest model of Aarow stove
(the Acorn 4) seems well suited to yurt use. Designed
as a household stove, it has the advantages of airwash
and secondary burn, making it very clean efficient and
more environmentally friendly, whilst not being too
heavy. Made in Dorset. Costs under £300.00 from
stoves, Shepton Mallet.
Cheap potbelly stoves There are some
very cheap (about £70) potbelly stoves availble
on the market. We have tried these, they are poorly
made, impossible to control, the flue gets dangerously
hot, and the logs need to be cut very small to feed
it. NOT RECOMMENDED
on line offer loads of helpful advice on
fitting stoves. They have experience of designing stoves
for use in Nomadic tents in Central Asia. They can supply
stove kits for use in yurts in this country.
