Welcome to Cotswold Shepherds Huts

Established in 2005, from the shores of Scotland to the tip of Cornwall, Cotswold Shepherd’s Huts have been used for a variety of purposes – from a lakeside retreat, children’s den, office space, art studio, shooting & fishing hut, spare bedroom, workshop to a summerhouse. 

We build your Cotswold Shepherds Hut by using appropriate materials and traditional craftsmanship to reflect the style of a 19th century original hut that lends itself to the landscape beautifully and can be used throughout the year.

All our shepherds huts are individual, sustainable and practical and a worthwhile investment for the future. Position your shepherd hut in a secluded spot in the garden, among woods or in fields and create the perfect space to get away from it all!
