In an increasingly competitive tourist market it is important to stand out from the crowd and shepherd huts do exactly that.
For B&B owners looking to expand, a shepherd’s hut can provide the perfect solution. Our Holiday Huts can be equipped with a kitchen and bathroom to provide customers with a self-contained retreat and our Guest Huts are perfectly proportioned to provide a private and novel en-suite bedroom. What’s more our shepherd huts arrive fully fitted out and ready to use so there will be none of the disruption and lost revenue that comes with building an extension.
Equally shepherd huts make a charming edition to any glampsite or campsite and with a wood burning stove you can offer cosy, year round accommodation increasing revenue returns.

How much can be charged depends on several factors such as location and the quality of the facilities however existing glampsite owners are charging in excess of a £100 a night in the high season.
When charging £80.00 per night at 60% occupancy a single unit grosses a return of £16,880 per year. With our basic Holiday Hut starting at £17,082 + VAT you could be in profit as early as year two.
