'Revival of the Shepherd's Hut'
‘The shepherds hut was once a common sight around the countryside and was originally used as a temporary home, especially during lambing season. This allowed shepherds to keep a watchful eye over their flock, while also having somewhere to store medicines and tools...’

‘Quick note to say I'm sitting in my office hut created by Kevin and Pennie and the folks at The Yorkshire Hut Company. Still love it, still find it creative and inspirational and wish them all the best!’
Bryan Bounds, Amerrycan Productions.
‘Thanks to Kevin and Pennie our hut evolved into a bespoke work of art, tailor-made to suit our requirements, and we love the way it blends so effortlessly into its surroundings. The level of craftsmanship, attention to detail and personable service made this a very happy and exciting venture for us. We would warmly recommend the Yorkshire Hut Company to anyone.’
Gavin & Pam Ward, Gavin Ward Design Associates.
‘It is perfect. I am sat in the hut. The rain is lashing on the roof. The stove is lit. So thank you.’
John Britton, Writer.
‘Owning a shepherd's hut has been on my wish list for a while, and now I have one I could not be more pleased. It gives us extra space in an unusual way, and is a complete pleasure to use. The workmanship is excellent, and Kevin's enthusiasm and skills have personalised it so that it is unique to me. Everyone who sees it wants one... and has a different suggestion for how to use it. For my book group it is the favourite venue, for our granddaughter it's a pirate ship, for my originally sceptical partner it's an ideal poker party meeting. For me it's a place to read, to write or just chill out. Thank you and congratulations to the Yorkshire Hut Company... it is perfect.’
Liz Benfield - Head Teacher.
‘Our shepherd's hut is the most beautiful thing ever!
It has been made with care and attention to detail - no words can describe how wonderful it is. It is more than we could have dreamed of. We were completely reassured from afar by receiving ongoing photographs showing each stage of the project from design to completion.’
Ed Thomas & Nancie Moyes, London.
‘I would whole-heartedly recommend The Yorkshire Hut Company to anyone who wanted high quality innovative craftsmanship.’
Juliette Spencer, Solicitor, York.
‘What a work of art! Thanks for a beautiful Shepherd's Hut! I needed a quiet office outside the house and now I can't wait to move into it. A number of people (even joiners) have admired the workmanship: the big, heavy hinges, cast iron wheels, and proper insulation. You just don't get that today. Many thanks!’
Bryan Bounds, Artistic Director, Amerrycan Theatre.
