Known for its scrumpy, amazing scenery, the famous accent and the best music festival in the world, the South West is a very special region of England.
The South West is one of the largest but least populated regions of the England comprised of several counties, including Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire.
It’s a popular holiday resort thanks to its feeling of tranquillity, good weather (for England) and its extremely long coastline – the longest of any UK region. You can find plenty of fantastic shepherd’s hut holidays down here.
You may also see the term West Country used to describe the South West, and although there are several different definitions for the West Country, the two are largely the same. The South West also includes a number of major cities, such as Bristol and Bath, with plenty to see and do.
It’s also one the most popular places in England to find a specialist shepherd’s hut maker. The shepherd’s hut and the South West go hand in hand thanks to their liking for remoteness, peace and beautiful surroundings.
