Shepherd's Huts to hunker down in

Each hut that rolls out of the doors of our Dorset workshop is imbued with the hand-crafted magic of the Arts & Crafts tradition, the very essence of John Ruskin’s famous quote: ‘When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece’

Quite simply, we make shepherd’s huts that are as beautiful as they are useful – a clever extra space that works equally well as a guest bedroomgarden roomhome officestudioholiday let or full living accommodation. With the added bonus that you can take it with you when you move.

As Seen In

"When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece." John Ruskin, Victorian Arts and Crafts proponent

For more than two decades, Plankbridge has proudly led the way in the shepherd’s hut revival, helping our customers to create something special that will work aesthetically and practically, inside and out, for generations to come.

Over the years we have seen our small business grow into a 40-strong team of the country’s finest and most experienced craftsmen, from hut makers to CAD designers, painters to furniture makers. This is why Plankbridge are consistently featured in the national press, from World of Interiors to House & Garden, and asked to make huts for discerning commercial customers such as THE PIG hotel group and Elmley Nature Reserve in Kent. But it is also why our shepherd’s huts now grace the gardens of hundreds of homes across the world, from the grandest manor to the smallest cottage. Our customers feel reassured that when they choose Plankbridge they are in good hands and investing in a quality hut that will last a lifetime.
