Over the last eight years The Yorkshire Hut Company has handcrafted over 40 shepherd’s huts from its workshop in York. It has created home offices, studios, extra space for growing families and even a bespoke fishing hut for cricketing legend Sir Ian Botham!
The family business has also designed and built huts for award-winning rental businesses, fitting solar lighting and compost toilets for clients with off-grid getaways and underfloor heating, micro-kitchens and even wet rooms for others with luxury glamping sites.
The timber is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, the windows are double glazed and the walls, floors and ceilings have Thermafleece insulation made from locally sourced sheep’s wool.
From individually stained glass windows and hand-carved plaques to concealed time capsules, wood-burning stoves and bespoke furniture, every detail is crafted by a team of fully qualified experts.
To date, The Yorkshire Hut Company has handcrafted all its shepherd’s huts from a workshop originally set up to produce bespoke architectural and ecclesiastical furniture. 2017 marks the company’s extremely welcome move to a former potato-drying barn six miles from York city centre, where the only neighbours are deer.
