Did you know Dorset Shepherd Huts were the first company in the UK to offer a Self-build option in the form of a 'flat pack'.  The Self-build option gives you the opportunity to build your own hut with the more specialised structural elements already completed for you.  It makes owning a shepherd's hut affordable, and you will be able to create your own space, entirely unique to you.

We believe that if you can put together a garden shed and pagola you should be able to construct our purpose built self-assembly hut! Why not work with your local professional trades to help you build your project - this will help your local economy!

You can choose from either our Standard Sized Glamping hut which is ideal for a couples retreat or our Family Glamping Hut which gives you the height to add a childrens mezzanine.

The sides and end walls are constructed, covered with breather membrane, and we agree a position of the window and door which we then leave a hole for both for you to insert your chosen products. These panels are placed on the rolling chassis along with our unique roof formers and strengthening bars and roof sheets, ready for you to assemble, with the fixings and the instruction guide for assembly.

You can then choose to add to this basic package from T&G or Corrugated cladding, our picture frame double glazed windows, stable doors, steps etc - see our Options and Pricing page for more details.
