The Dartmoor Shepherds Hut

The Dartmoor hut is the smallest hut in our range and is most reminiscent of the original shepherds huts which were common during the 19th century. These would have provided a warm and dry respite for Shepherds watching their flocks. We have named this model after our nearest National Park, Dartmoor, an area of harsh terrain which is well known for its sheep farming today. See our example layout and specification for ideas although we can build your hut however you wish as each and every Shepherds Hut that we build is crafted by hand in our Devon workshop.
