Breathtaking scenery, spanning moorlands, rugged coastlines and great cities, the North East of England is not far from having it all. A bit more sunshine would help of course, but you can’t have it all!
It’s not surprising therefore that you might be interested in finding a shepherd’s hut for sale in the region. It’s idyllic for a relaxing and a slightly slower pace of life, which matches up perfectly for a weekend getaway holiday or even for your own private use. Shepherd huts are becoming ever more popular as a personal office space for those who work from home.
The North East is a fairly broad and takes into account the distinct regions of Yorkshire (East Riding, North, West and South Yorkshire), Durham, Tyne and Wear, Northumberland.
If you’re wondering about price, the cost of a new shepherd’s hut will change from hut builder to hut builder, but a ballpark figure of between £10,000 and £20,000 covers most. Not bad really when you think that you are actually buying the equivalent of a small, compact home, or certainly can be at least depending on the fixtures, fittings and items inside your shepherd’s hut.
