The Turnkey Shepherd Hut

Turnkey Huts are where we really come into our own, bringing all of our Blackdown Shepherd Huts skills and knowledge to the fore. You tell us what you want to achieve in your hut and we are here to help you make that happen. We don’t skimp on quality and our hut-build is evidence of that, so we love it when we can challenge ourselves and come up with solutions that make you happy.

Our customers tell us that they find our approach to be friendly and helpful and it’s that which really makes them feel like they are part of the Blackdown family. We share stories and testimonials so you can see what our customers have achieved (with their permission), but we also respect personal confidentiality when required – we are well-used to dealing with commissions for high net-worth clients.The Blackdown livery for a Turnkey Shepherd Hut can consist of the following:

  • Oak chassis and our signature oak cladding
  • Oak steps
  • Hard wood painted windows and doors
  • Oak floor
  • Electrics and plumbing
  • Light switches and light fittings
  • Internal decoration with Farrow & Ball colours
  • Fold down wall bed
  • Oak table and storage benches
  • Hand-made kitchen unit with oak worktop, Neff hob, integral fridge and kitchen cupboards
  • Shower, basin and toilet

Prices start at £25,000 Inc. VAT

However, we can alter and customise this to your needs with extras available as listed below.

These options can all be added to any of our bespoke huts, prices available on request.

Wood-burner: There are many options when it comes to wood-burners – we use a Villager stove as standard but we are quite happy to incorporate your choice of wood-burner.  We fit a slate hearth, oak surround, heat deflection plate, custom made twin wall flue system, wall vents and, for your peace of mind, a combined smoke and carbon monoxide detector.

Bed: Our unique “easy slide” bed system allows a double bed to fold back to a sofa with minimal effort and with space for storage underneath. All finished in wood boarding and solid oak. Supplied with a 160mm thick, foldable excelsior futon mattress available various colours and finishes.

Fold down Bed: For those of you who don’t want the fuss of making the bed every day – our fold down bed is an ideal option.  Hidden away in the wall during the day and then when you’re ready for bed, fold the bed down and you’re already for a comfortable sleep.  In the morning, simply secure the bed in place with the straps provided and fold it back up into the wall – regaining your leisure space for the day-time.

Shower room: Included in the shower room suite is a standard space saving toilet with concealed cistern and a Hib Metro compact basin. The shower provided is a Bristan Bliss 8.5kw electric shower with a digital display, providing instant heat. The shower area is fitted with an aqua board surround and a Roman Lumin bi folding shower screen. To allow for some privacy for those in the shower room, we provide a partition wall with a traditional ledge and brace door, fitted with antique style hinges and a Suffolk latch.

Kitchen: For those wishing to enjoy the practicalities of daily life within their hut we include a solid oak worktop, Shaws sink and Neff hob. Below is a cupboard allowing for storage as well as an integrated fridge.  You can make the kitchen area as large or small as you wish – incorporating a breakfast bar, additional cupboards and a larder if required.

Gas Boiler: Gas boilers can be used as an alternative to heat water meaning your hut really is home from home.

Canvas awning: Create an extra room outside your hut. All canvas is rot and water resistant to a high standard. We supply the awning with a water tight track joining system which attaches on the fascia. Wooden posts, metal pegs and guide ropes also supplied.

Off grid solutions: At Blackdown® we believe in having a low impact on the environment. For more information on solar powered systems, compost or cassette toilets please do not hesitate to call us on 01460 929774.

Oak Desk: Our solid oak desks are custom made to your exact required size. They have easy to operate gate leg hinges which allow the desk to fold back flush to the wall when not in use.

Cubby holes:  You can never have enough storage so we tuck storage spaces in wherever we can – ensuring that you can find places for all of your possessions.

We specialise in bespoke huts so, if you want something and can’t see it here, please get in touch and we will provide a quote.
