Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, while sitting well within the natural world around it, a shepherd’s hut made by Dorset-based master hutmaker, Plankbridge, can offer a peaceful place to embrace the great outdoors and build memories with the family. Whether relaxing or running around the garden, these humble huts can bring all generations of the family together to unwind and appreciate the simpler things in life.
An idyllic den for children to while away their school holidays, a shepherd’s hut can bring them closer to the wildlife that surrounds them and provide a base for grandparents to pass down their gardening expertise and spin a few yarns along the way. As parents return at the end of the day, the hut can host an al fresco supper for the whole family, making the most of those hazy summer evenings that live so long in the memory.
Found nestled under trees, framed by flower beds or standing proudly in meadows and fields, each Plankbridge shepherd’s hut complements its natural surroundings by remaining faithful to the spirit of the Victorian craftsmen who designed these iconic structures. The timeless 12’ by 6’6” footprint with a corrugated iron exterior has been transformed into everything from dining rooms and playrooms to potting sheds and peaceful garden sanctuaries, helping owners to step outside and make the most of their outdoor spaces whatever the weather.
