About Shepherds Rest Huts

About Us: Several years ago we bought a shepherds hut as a much needed spare bedroom when we moved to Somerset from Bristol. It was charming but not suited to year round use.

Having found it difficult to buy a hut to our particular design and quality, we decided to try making one ourselves. Luke has been designing and making bespoke furniture for many years so he approached the project much like he has approached the problem of creating modern and functional kitchens with traditional materials and skills/methods.

We like to think that we have taken the simple beauty and romance of a traditional hut, and combined it with practicality and sustainability of modern building techniques. We copied an old design and build huts that are fit for every day use and that will last for decades.

It has always been very important to us that all timber we buy is from sustainable sources, and the more locally sourced, the better.

Based in farm buildings in Somerset near the borders with Dorset and Wiltshire we now build a hut a month to commission. You can find out more about life at the workshop and our shepherds huts on our blog here.
