Why a Shepherd’s Hut?
Traditionally used by farmers for shelter at lambing time, shepherd’s huts have recently seen a resurgence in modern day living and make an attractive addition to your home and garden.
If, like us, space at home is very limited, for example, trying to accommodate a growing family, unexpected guests, a need for a quiet office space, hobby room or just somewhere to go and escape – a shepherd’s hut could be the answer. Not normally needing planning permission (unless being used for business purposes or to be situated within the garden of a listed building) it provides an easy solution to extending your house without all the costs and hassle of an extension. If at any time you decide to move home, your hut can go with you!
A shepherd’s hut can also make excellent all year round holiday accommodation. Fitted with a kitchen area, heating and ensuite facilities, a ‘glamping’ hut could bring in an extra income to a campsite or B&B. Another option for larger campsites needing a shower block/toilets is to have a separate hut providing these facilities.
With over 30 years experience in joinery, our passion for the trade always shines through in the finished article. Having had a love of shepherd’s huts for many years, we decided to take the plunge in 2016 to build our first hut. Receiving high praise for the quality of our work at a local country fair and several shows later, including the RHS Hyde Hall Flower Show, the hut-building side of the business is growing fast.
Using high quality materials, including a solid oak chassis, our huts are built bespoke, taking into account the customer’s requirements. From the initial site visit to the delivery of your hut, you can be assured of our full commitment in design and building, working with you all the way. No corners are cut and our huts are built to last.

What our customers have to say
“The hut looks splendid in this glorious sunshine. We are working on kitting out the interior. We’ve had two ‘trips around the hut’ for friends so far and everyone is most impressed, particularly with the quality of the workmanship and especially the paintwork. Kevin has done us proud and we couldn’t be more pleased.”
“Thank you so much for all the effort you put into making my superb hut, with all the extra little details so well crafted.”
