Take a shepherd’s hut staycation and savour the summer at home

Amy Brice


Offering a tailor-made space to relax, rest, dine and unwind, a shepherd’s hut from Dorset-based master hutmaker, Plankbridge, can provide a truly unique staycation destination. Just a few short steps down the garden path, a holiday at home can avoid the tiring journeys, crowded flights and rising prices of travelling abroad during the summer holidays, so every spare minute can be spent embracing British summertime at its best.

Endlessly adaptable to the needs of its owners, the classic 12’ by 6’6” Victorian footprint of a shepherd’s hut can be transformed into everything from a spare bedroom or studio to a garden room or al fresco dining area. With the addition of fold out desks and beds, the holiday hideaway can even transition from dinner to bedtime with ease, so its owners are able to accommodate family and friends joining them for their back garden break.

As the popularity of staycations continues to rise, a shepherd’s hut can channel the cost of a holiday into an investment for the future, with the humble hut on wheels becoming an extension to the home all year round, even when the time comes to move onto a new property.

Having spent the autumn, winter and spring lovingly nurturing their gardens, owners can reap the fruits of the labour by taking a break in their own bespoke bolthole. Turning the outdoor space into a ‘live-in garden’, the timeless design of the shepherd’s hut blends seamlessly into its natural surroundings, offering a front row seat as the borders burst into life once more.

Plankbridge shepherd’s huts start from £16,500 plus VAT and measure 12' long. Longer, wider and bespoke designs can be quoted for.
