Shepherd’s Huts Information Hub

The shepherd’s hut – compact, simple and unassuming from the outside, yet an embodiment of magnificent design, skilled manufacturing and creative vision.

The shepherd’s hut has come a long way.

From the humble beginnings as a farmer’s place of rest in the field to the fantastic array of shepherd’s huts we have on offer today.

Each hut has a uniqueness and quality to it that makes it a special place for both the owner and visitor.

A shepherd’s hut can now present itself in many different ways – a quirky but luxury holiday stay, a rustic off-grid hut, an office space for remote working, a business opportunity and, for some, a permanent home. There are many more uses of a shepherd’s hut too, making them such a versatile and useful space.

This page aims to be an informational hub for all things shepherd’s hut. From finding manufacturers who build huts from scratch to places where you can find second hand shepherd’s huts for sale and superb shepherd’s huts for you to visit as a holiday.

If there’s anything on shepherd’s huts you feel that I haven’t covered but you’d like to know about, please get in touch and let me know.

I also write about plenty of other topics on Tiny Eco Home Life. Just click on the links coming up if you’d like to read more about the environment or eco-friendly living. As always, my aim is to educate and provide information for you.

The environment is an important topic for me (and I’m sure many of you reading). For this reason, I try to cover my carbon footprint and improve the environment by working with Ecologi. Until I can buy some land and maintain my own forest, I’m helping to build forests around the world with Ecologi.

If you like what they do and what I do, you can make a one-off gift via my Ecologi profile to help make the world a greener place. Thanks!
