Our story

Simon Russell
Shepherd’s Rest Huts was set up several years ago from the need for an additional spare bedroom. We copied an old design with the simple beauty and romance of a traditional hut, combining it with the practicality and sustainability of modern building techniques.

We now build huts that are fit for every day use and that will last for decades. Before embarking on our shepherd’s hut journey, we were professional builders with over 20 years experience building and renovating period homes, so we also have the experience to make your hut unique.

It’s important to us that the timber we buy is from sustainable sources and that materials are sourced from local businesses wherever possible.

We are based in Somerset near the borders with Dorset and Wiltshire.
