Traditional Shepherds Hut in Burford
One of our brand-new luxury shepherd’s huts was recently installed at our Burford show site in Oxfordshire, giving customers the opportunity to see it for themselves. Lovingly crafted by hand at our Norfolk factory, the 2.4 x 5.4m Shepherds Hut
is made using sustainably sourced, FSC© certified redwood timber grown slowly in Scandinavia's cold climates. This important process gives the timber a closer, denser grain far superior to other timber types. Kitted out as a cosy hobby room for guests to admire and gain some inspiration from, the hut is our Herdwick model, which features a double-door entrance, and a double window in the gable.
Following the blueprints of a traditional Shepherd’s Hut, the Herdwick has a curved roof clad with galvanised corrugated steel. This gives it optimum protection from the elements without compromising on traditional aesthetics. Each of the attractive Georgian windows are double glazed for ambient comfort, and the exterior of the hut is clad in a traditional weatherboard style painted in a two-tone style using our opaque colours of Black and Ivory. All door furniture, latches and handles are finished in antique black for a tasteful effect.
Inside, the building is fully insulated and lined, with solid timber lining painted in the Farrow & Ball shade of Ammonite. Our engineered flooring in the shade of Heritage Oak also adds further luxury, with unique aesthetic, insulating and sound-absorption qualities. While this beautiful building is styled as a hobby room, our range of Shepherd’s Huts would also make great spaces for work-from-home offices, entertaining spaces and reading nooks where you can simply sit and relax.
