Custom Made Huts

Unlike our Snug and Cabin options, our huts can be developed by taking vernacular design leads such as the local use of materials, a roof pitch or door styles. It is lovely to take a local industry or craft as the basis of a Custom Made project; a good example is the Ferryman’s Hut for Elmley National Nature Reserve.

Please see the three examples of previous projects and do get in touch to discuss your ideas.

Your project team is made up of the country’s finest and most experienced hut-craftsmen and furniture makers, CAD designer, painters and is lead by Master Hutmaker, Richard Lee. Trained at John Makepeace’s Hooke Park College and proud maker of over 500 huts to date, Richard can help create your perfect hut.

Prices typically start from £55,000.

Elmley National Nature Reserve

Designed and built for Elmley National Nature Reserve on the Isle of Sheppey, the example shown is 20’ / 6.1m by 9’ / 2.7m - one of several custom designs developed with the owners which make the best of the stunning views on the reserve. Elmley has become a much admired successful holiday business in a short space of time. The layout features a characterful double bed, glazed end wall, kitchen, bathroom and bunk beds. A cast iron radiator provides the heating.

The Roundhouse

This Roundhouse was the result of a brief from one of the pioneers of the glamping world, Swallowtail Hill in East Sussex. Inspired by the woodland location to create a round house structure with bolt on shower room, we referenced the charcoal burner’s hut in Swallowdale, the second Swallows and Amazons novel. This hut was clad in corrugated iron, with a cedar shingle roof and some reclaimed timber on the interior.

The Pig Hotel

Award winning hotel group The Pig have commissioned several huts from Plankbridge. The example shown is one of four for the new Pig Hotel in Cornwall. At 22’ / 6.7m by  9’6 / 2.9m this large hut is very much designed and built to the Pig’s specification, clad and lined in reclaimed timber. This is a good example of a unique design to a customer’s brief. It features a cast iron bath and large indoor, and outdoor, shower.
