Our Custom Made shepherd’s huts can be developed by taking vernacular design leads such as the local use of materials, a pitched roof or door styles. We enjoy being inspired by 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 examples of previous projects below and do get in touch to discuss your plans.

Prices typically range from £75,000 – £125,000.
Designed and built for unique holiday accommodation on the Isle of Sheppey, the example shown is 20’ / 6.1m by 9’ / 2.7m. This is one of 10 Custom Made designs developed with owners Georgina and Gareth which make the best of the stunning views on the reserve. The layout features a characterful double bed, glazed end wall, kitchen, bathroom and bunk beds. A cast iron radiator provides the heating. Elmley has become a much admired and successful holiday business in a short space of time.
The multi-award winning Pig Hotels have commissioned over 20 huts from Plankbridge, from traditional sized Treatment Rooms to their large Garden Wagons. The example shown is one of 4 for The Pig at Harlyn Bay, Cornwall. At 22’ / 6.7m long by 9’6 / 2.9m wide this large hut is very much designed and built to The Pig’s specification, clad and lined with their own reclaimed timber. It even features a top quality cast iron bath and large indoor and outdoor showers. This is a great example of a design unique to the customer’s style and ethos.
Cat and Ant Earpe have created a very special holiday venue at Aller Farm in mid-Dorset. The four huts have been superbly interior designed by Cat, and it’s great to see how successful it has all become in such a short time. Huts are named after fields on the farm: Links, Littledown, Kittylands and Zoulands. The venue has all the magic ingredients; a lake, a famous nearby pub in the village, full amenities within the huts including shower room, full kitchen, wood burner, super comfy double bed and even quirky outdoor bathtubs. And a large sprinkling of magic touches throughout.
