Hi, we’re Will and George and we set up Blackdown Shepherd Huts in 2011, laboriously building our first hut in Will’s garage, using our 20 years of carpentry and bespoke building experience. Since then we have been fortunate enough to work with some really lovely customers, growing the business along the way. We now employ a team of skilled craftsmen in our 6000 sq. ft. workshop based near Ilminster in Somerset.
Historically, Shepherd’s Huts were mobile structures which could be moved around the field to give the shepherd shelter as he tended his flock through the lambing season. They were built using whatever materials the farmer had to hand and so came in various shapes and sizes. We’ve taken our inspiration from these original structures and adapted them for modern living, which affords you the luxury of a little more space than the shepherd’s average 12ft x 6ft.
We would love to meet you in person, make you a cup of tea and then show you around our display huts and our workshop, but first, as an introduction, let us tell you all about the luxury living space that is a Blackdown Shepherd Hut.
