Dorset hutmakers Plankbridge unveil shepherd’s hut with children in mind

A world away from video games, televisions, tweeting and bleeping, a shepherd’s hut from Dorset-based master hutmakers, Plankbridge, can provide children with a cherished hideaway where they can embrace the great outdoors. Whether playing hide-and-seek, counting butterflies or catching up with homework over the holidays, these timeless structures are a perfect base for small feet to run around and for big imaginations to run wild.

Endlessly adaptable, the Victorian-inspired shepherd’s hut can be easily transformed from an office, bedroom and studio when the weekend rolls around or the grandchildren come to stay. Bespoke designs, with the little ones in mind, can include inventive storage solutions so there’s plenty of room for the toy box, while fold out beds and folding desks will create a blank canvas for everything from trainsets to paint sets.

Fitted with a 75mm insulated cavity wall, constructed using a breathable carbon-neutral material made from 80% recycled bottles, these outdoor playrooms will be cool in summer and cosy when the temperate drops. A den for all seasons, the shepherd’s hut can extend the use of the garden throughout the year, giving more time to enjoy the simpler things in life and make memories with the family, whatever the weather.

Plankbridge shepherd’s huts start from £16,500 and measure 12′ long. Longer and bespoke designs can be quoted for.
