Blackdown Shepherd Huts

Blackdown Shepherd Huts

Shrubbery Farm, Catherine Wheel, Ilminster, Somerset, TA19 9LA


We create bespoke shepherd huts for use as a luxury living space, a workspace, a glamping unit, or a build-it-yourself space – the choice is yours.

We are a great team of 20 people working out of a large workshop near Ilminster in Somerset.

Viewings of our Shepherd Huts can be made by appointment at our workshop. 



“Just a quick email to thank everyone at Blackdown for our beautiful Shepherds hut. Alan and Liza thanks for all your help and advice, a big thank you to the team who built it, it is the most beautiful Shepherds hut and the craftsmanship is beyond our expectations and finally a big thank you to Will and Jamie, it probably wasn't the easiest delivery, it’s all a bit tight around here.

“We’re looking forward to having lots of family and friends to stay. The Shepherds hut beats an extension 100%. Thank you everyone.”

Tanya and Nick, July 2018

“Dear Alan

Sue and I want to express our immense gratitude to you all at Blackdown for your shepherd's hut that arrived and was installed today so expertly by Will and Jamie. We are more than thrilled - in fact, we are to a huge degree bouncing around like little children!! (which at our age is not an easy thing to do ........) Not forgetting the hamper which was so thoughtful!

Thank you once again and do visit us if ever you are down this way - you would be more than welcome. Our very best wishes.”

“We are so happy with our beautiful shepherd’s huts that are now in situ looking out over the sea. The quality of the workmanship is outstanding and even more impressive now we have them here. They really are remarkable pieces of craftsmanship from top to bottom.

“Nick and I want to thank you all at Blackdown for offering such a superlative service. It has been seamless from start to finish and that’s down to you all - both front of house and in the workshop. Completed by Will and Jamie placing them on site.”

“We cannot speak highly enough of George and Will and the Blackdown team. We were so impressed with the look and the finish of the huts when we visited the workshop that we ordered one immediately. Our gorgeous Shepherds Hut has been much admired by many in the village and is used for Bed and Breakfast. Accommodation; we have the 16 ft by 7ft version with en-suite shower, sink and toilet. Their pre and after sales service is really good – nothing is too much trouble. All our questions were answered swiftly and I have even had e-mail conversations with George at 9pm on a Saturday night. That shows real dedication! The delivery, was bang on the date promised, and although quite tricky to say the least, was done with a smile and we were made to feel it was no trouble at all. (It was!!!) thank you George and Will, I’m sure your company will grow from strength to strength, you build a great product.

“Blackdown Shepherd Huts have done it again! Our five new huts are fully installed and look incredible, from the quality craftsmanship to the beautiful Scandi-interiors, they are finished to the highest standard. Our guests love them and the feedback has been fantastic; the guest stays are selling like hot cakes! The team over at Blackdown were friendly and professional throughout the whole process and we couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”

The Fish Hotel, August 2018

“We ordered a 16 foot by 7foot hut from Blackdown Shepherd Huts with some personal modifications to include a folding double bed, full electrics and lighting and a pair of French doors on one side of the hut. They delivered to our new house exactly to our deadline, which allowed us to accommodate our Christmas guests. Not only is it functional and beautiful, but their workmanship is of the highest standard and their after sales service can`t be faulted.They were two of the most pleasant people you could hope to deal with.”
