Shepherd’s Brace

Shepherd’s Brace

Our opulent Blackdown Brace Shepherd Hut is two of our hand-crafted shepherd huts joined together with a beautiful glass walkway. Connecting you or your guests to the outdoors whilst moving between the huts!

Our first Brace shepherd hut arrived in the Display Garden in 2016 and since then two further display huts have been in occupation. Each time, we’ve pushed the brace concept a bit further, with the second design being a family brace and then an outdoor bathroom brace, but 2023 heralds a total revamp – we’re delighted to introduce our new Blackdown Fusion Brace.

We’re fascinated by using clever designs to make the best use of space within the shepherd hut footprint, but this time we’ve gone one step further and married the indoor space seamlessly with the outdoors to really make the most of the outdoor experience that is synonymous with a shepherd hut stay. The Blackdown Fusion is still two shepherd huts joined by a glass walkway, but this time the rear hut is perpendicular to the front hut, creating stylish sleeping and lounging modules. If you wish, you can stop at this point and create your own outdoor area down the steps from the two sets of double doors. But the Fusion really comes into its own with the addition of the Blackdown chassis deck, creating an integrated outdoor area with a covered function area at the end of the deck.


Inside, our styled interior also includes an entertainment module with the inclusion of Gallo Acoustic Speakers and a mini-bar module with an integrated drawer fridge. The bedroom provides a real focal point with a king-sized bed and full-height headboard, wardrobe and a William Holland Bateau bath.

Bespoke Service

Our bespoke service means that we can create the perfect hut designed to your own specifications. See our videos showcasing our earlier display Brace Huts.

Our display Brace Huts in our Blackdown Display Garden have previously included the Couples Retreat Brace Hut including a full-sized double bed, and dreamy William Holland roll-top bath.

Followed by our Family Brace Hut which has the capability of sleeping up to five people along with a kitchen area with full size table, which is a real winner with families!

Both of these ex-display Brace Hut sare now delighting guests at Dimpsey Glamping.

If you’d like to view or book a break at either with Dimpsey, the  Couples Retreat Brace is known as Yonder and the Family Brace is known as Dapple with them.


More Examples of our Brace Hut

The Blackdown ‘1121’ Brace Shepherd Hut included our dining area, which with a few movements can be transformed from a cosy carriage-inspired space, to an exciting cinema room with two bench seats turning into two single children’s beds, and a projector and electric screen creating the perfect entertainment.

There’s also a cosy and comfortable seating area, our hand-crafted kitchen for your guests to enjoy some self-contained cooking, and a spacious shower room and WC with lots of opulent features to offer your guests high-end and year-round accommodation.

Sleeping up to two adults and two children, it’s an exciting opportunity to offer both a family escape.
