Professionally constructed and insulated using only the best materials, including durable English oak, the Snug is an heirloom quality shepherd's hut built to last for generations.
With the skilled Plankbridge team’s famous and unrivalled traditional craftsmanship for contemporary living, this is most certainly a hut to hunker down in.
The Plankbridge Cabin shepherd’s hut is wider than the Snug It offers useful extra space to be utilised as a self-contained annexe with kitchen and bathroom, spare room, holiday let, glamping venue – an almost endless range of uses.
As with all Plankbridge shepherd's huts, the heirloom quality Cabin is built to last for generations by a team devoted to creating unique spaces that sit superbly well in the garden and wider landscape. From the Cotswolds to Portugal, Switzerland to the United States, Plankbridge shepherd’s huts are in use around the world providing a great solution to the increasing need for extra space.
Whilst many shepherd’s huts may only move occasionally, the stout metal chassis on heavy iron wheels mean your hut remains portable, and can be taken with you when you move.
Custom Made Huts
Our Snug and Cabin options are based around familiar Plankbridge designs. Our Custom Made section is where your imagination can go to work, and ours too.
It is still a thrill to take a blank piece of paper and work up a design to suit your needs, and enjoy the process of creating unique grand designs and amazing spaces; a pioneering treehouse, a roundhouse for glamping, children’s playhouse, a sauna, a meditation space, a glazed garden office, a new business venture..
We have created custom made huts for many successful businesses from hotels, shows and exhibitions through to wedding venues. The Plankbridge team are very clever makers, and enjoy the process of designing and making to create your own luxurious hut.
'Many thanks for making an absolutely stonking job of our shepherd’s hut. We absolutely love the quality and are so very glad we chose you to supply us with one. Would you please thank all who were involved in its production.'.
We adore your shepherd’s hut! We’ve had the fire on already and I have one of my most prized things already in there - a chair that my grandfather upholstered for me when I was a child - a very fitting thing to have in there as he was the one who got me into growing in the first place!....
'Just a quick note to say we are thrilled with our shepherd's hut which sits beautifully in the orchard as if it's been there for years! Your two guys who delivered it were charming and please thank them for us'.
''Our shepherd's hut arrived in our tiny Cumbrian village to virtual celebrity status. Our trip to Dorset in the Spring to design the hut with Richard and to meet Rachel and see the team at work was, for me, seventh heaven. Craftsmanship and care and knowledge and skill and empathy and patience all rolled up together in one Dorset barn'.
'We are continually getting amazing comments about our shepherd's hut and everyone loves it!'.
'...we installed the shepherd's hut in a woodland glade at the bottom of the garden where it looks superb and offers me peace and solitude... I spend a couple of hours each day in it, I'm writing this in here now, and I love it and the sheer quality of the little things like the window furniture'.
'Craftsmanship, the highest quality, and great care everywhere you look; built to last for ever, cosy but spacious. A shepherd's hut cocoon from our strange world... what a dream... you have been extremely professional, thoughtful and fun'.
'I'm delighted with the shepherd's hut, thank you. Half the little neighbourhood has been in to have a look and all are completely wowed'.

'I am so impressed with the craftsmanship and attention to detail. It is so beautiful! This really does mean something as I am a very 'hard to please' German lady with very high standards. We are so happy with the shepherd's hut and are spending lots of time in it...the kids have already taken over and it has become the board games room.'.
'From the client's initial project concept, through to the CAD clarification process and final specification, to the craftsmanship in bringing it together (including some very nifty design features) and, by no means least, to the skills in putting it in place, my Plankbridge shepherd's hut Cabin is an outstanding example of what skilled workers can create using natural materials, with the end result being a wonderful and enduring product'.
