The English Shepherds Hut Co has manufactured shepherd huts for the past seven years. Originally designed to accommodate shepherds guarding their glock, the huts are now used in a range of residential and commercial settings including luxury accommodation. By combining tradition with comfort, The English Shepherds Hut Co create bespoke huts tailored to individual requirements. The made to order huts consist of cedar, larch or redwoood cladding and can be built in a range of sizes. Once built, they are hand-finished by a team of skilled craftsmen in the company workshop in Norfolk.
Protection of exterior wood is of the upmost importance as the colour can fade after harmful UV rays damage the lining within the wood. With this in mind, The English Shepherds Hut Co applies Osmo UV-Protection-Oil Extra 420 to the huts. This finish delays the greying process by shielding the wood against harmful UV rays, algae and fungal decay. Additionally, it ensures a professional finish that will enhance and protect wood for many years to come. Osmo UK finishes are also used inside the huts on kitchen worktops and wooden shelves to complement the classic wooden interior.
"It was important to us to use high quality materials to reflect our premium price-point" comments Rob, Operations Manager at The English Shepherds Hut Co. "We've been using Osmo finishes for around three years now - and haven't looked back. What I like about Osmo UK is the standard of finish, the clear coating enhances the natural wood grain without discolouration, peeling or flaking".

"I am happy to report that the hut has had a magical effect on my fortunes. Shortly before moving there, I was dropped by my last agent. I tried writing children stories, but the agents resisted my charms. Then I moved into the hut... It was quieter in there, I could look out over open fields: I immediately started writing in a new way that was more playful, more expansive. I tried writing in a new way: I thought I'd let the characters talk, and I'd see what they wanted to say. 'I am Rory Branagan,' said the first, 'I am actually a detective...' I let him keep going. I sent off Rory Branagan's story to eight agents, five wanted to represent him. I chose the best. Within three days, Penguin were offering a three book deal, at 25K a book. Within three more, Harper Collins were offering six figures, for seven! I couldn't really believe it, but here I am, outside the hut, having just received the contract, for the work I did within it. Thank you English Shepherd's Huts! You have changed my life, and made it more twinkley, more rural, and more fun!"

The owner of the site, Ian Ledger, had these kind words to offer!
This month, Waingates Farm in North Yorkshire launched after many months of preparation! We were first approached by the owner, Matthew, about a year ago. We helped him obtain planning permission for six shepherds huts, and Matthew promptly ordered three for the first year on what would be a thoroughly unique retreat. Each hut enjoys its own secluded garden, barbecue and hot tub, with uninterrupted views of the magnificent countryside.
Matthew and Emma did a great job decorating the huts we built, with tasteful vintage themes that are both rustic and funky!
Shepherd Hut holidays in Yorkshire are a rarity, but Waingates Farm has created a luxury glamping gem. To make your booking, visit www.waingatesfarmhuts.co.uk
