Providing a space to sleep, study, relax and reflect, a shepherd’s hut made by master hutmaker, Plankbridge, can give students the independence they need when they return home from university for the holidays. Ideal as a guest room for the rest of the year, during academic breaks a shepherd’s hut can be transformed into a blissful bolthole, allowing students to enjoy all the comforts of the family home while maintaining their sense of newfound freedom.
A hut for all seasons, complete with a wood burning stove and 240v electrics, the timeless 12’ by 6’6” Victorian footprint with its corrugated iron exterior continues to be reimagined for the modern world. The new outdoor retreat can even offer parents the freedom to make more of their own homes, now able to convert the old bedroom into an office, gym or en suite bathroom.
Following graduation, the options are endless with these uniquely versatile and mobile shelters, enabling parents to provide children with a living space while their first homes are found or allow them to take the huts with them as they fly the nest. The shepherd’s hut can even be converted for the next generation, as a playroom for grandchildren, all the while bringing the family one step closer to the great outdoors.
Plankbridge shepherd’s huts start from £16,500 plus VAT and measure 12' long. Longer and bespoke designs can be quoted for.
