Traditional Shepherd Huts

Drawing inspiration from historic examples, our traditional range of huts echoes these in size and fit out. These huts are often a little smaller, ranging from 12ft to 18ft in length, and have simpler fit outs such as a bed, wood burning stove and a desk. As with all our huts, we can design it to your exact specifications, meaning that the size, beds, heating, electricity, cladding, doors, windows and more can all be altered to make something unique. For larger Shepherd Huts with toilets, showers and kitchens, check out our Luxury range.
