Having lovingly crafted hundreds of bespoke shepherd’s huts at its workshop in Piddlehinton, Dorset, Plankbridge Master Hutmakers has now unveiled its first ‘ready to go’ model, a distillation of 16 years’ experience and knowledge of what people need and want from their outdoor hideaways. Often dubbed the Rolls-Royce of hut makers, Plankbridge has poured its unrivalled expertise, time-honoured craftsmanship and dedication to Victorian rural heritage into its new Simply Classic shepherd’s hut, which offers a more affordable option for those wishing to extend the use of their garden throughout the year.
Elegant in its simplicity, well-appointed within and built to Plankbridge’s master craftsmen’s exacting standards, the Simply Classic remains true to the humble hut on wheels that was commonplace in the English countryside during Thomas Hardy’s time. With black corrugated iron cladding, Restoration Green windows, oak flooring and Plankbridge’s signature cast iron wheels, the Simply Classic is built to stand the test of time and blends seamlessly into its natural surroundings.
Hut owners to-be need only select their preferred window position and can then enjoy a hut design that has been honed over time, with a neutral interior palate, wood burning stove and 4’6” bed, true to the layout of the Victorian originals, along with 240v electrics. This classic option makes for an understated and cosy space, perfect for a spare bedroom, home office or studio, while bespoke designs catering for more specific requirements can also be quoted for.
The Simply Classic shepherd’s hut costs £16,500 plus VAT and measures 12' long.
