About Shepherd huts

Shepherd huts were originally made a few hundred years ago. The earliest mention is from the 16th century mentioning huts being used by shepherds. The huts were made on farms with whatever was to hand, if there was a resident carpenter then it would have involved mainly wood, if you had a blacksmith then it would have been more metal.

Originally, shepherd’s huts provided shelter from bad weather and a place to rest during the lambing season. Owning a shepherd’s hut allowed farmers manage their land better.

Use of shepherd huts by farmers reached a peak in the late 19th Century and dwindled in the 20th century with the advent of mechanised farm machinery and electric power reaching even remote farms. Their use persisted in some northern counties in the United Kingdom, particularly Westmoreland and Northumberland, where the terrain of the uplands supports little else but sheep farming.

We make shepherd huts that can be used for a variety of purposes such as a home office, holiday accommodation, spare bedroom, annexe or even a library.
