Shepherd huts get ready for summer
Blackdown Shepherd Huts has created what it calls the ?ultimate?dream huts? for the English garden, ready for the summer season.
The huts come with an oak-clad or metal-clad exterior, and include a bathroom and a kitchen, or a log-burner. According to the company, recent customers have bought the huts for a range of purposes, including using them as summer houses, saunas and garden offices.
Will Vickery of Blackdown Shepherd Huts, said: ?The English garden is a place that people feel is an extension of their home, and our shepherd huts are the ultimate celebration of a quintessentially English style.”
?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.
?Currently, however, Blackdown customers have been using them for a range of things, including children’s playrooms and garden retreats. Indeed, hotels and businesses have purchased them to use as extra accommodation and catering huts, or to create their own glamping sites.?
