Blackdown Shepherd Huts will be showcasing three top of the range glamping huts at UK Glamping Show.
Somerset-based shepherd hut makers ‘Blackdown Shepherd Huts’ will again be exhibiting their luxury huts at the Glamping Show, and this year they will be taking three of their handmade designs.
On display will be the ever-popular Turnkey Hut, a Self-Build Hut, and showcasing for the first time, the Shepherd’s Brace Hut, which is the latest addition to the Blackdown flock.
Brace yourselves for the Brace Hut….
The Shepherd’s Brace Hut is a pair of Quercus (oak) huts joined together and boasts a hand-crafted kitchen with copper worktop, Neff induction Hobb, Abode brushed nickel tap, Shaw’s sink and integrated fridge, a luxurious Banquette seating area, wardrobe, shower room with a Bagnodesign brushed nickel shower and bespoke copper shower surround, William Holland basin and a Villager Puffin wood burning stove.
Through a glazed walkway into the bedroom there is a William Holland roll top bath finished in copper with nickel interior on a raised platform with floor lighting, Completing this luxury double hut experience is a bespoke Naturalmat double bed with a stargazing roof above, with Tom Raffield light fittings. Outside the Brace Hut is fitted with Fitz Fryer lights.
Blackdown’s Quercus huts are perfect for glamping retreats, offices and luxury living spaces, and will be located at stand OSA40 during the Glamping Show 2016 from 21st-23rd September at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
Blackdown’s luxury huts on display
Will Vickery, who runs Blackdown Shepherd Huts, explains why they’ve created the amazing new Shepherd’s Brace Hut: ‘Our aim is to always surprise customers with the space that our huts offer and with the double hut we’ve gone out of our way to create a high-end luxury space with the hospitality industry in mind. Starbed Hideaways came to us wanting more space for their guests and we had been looking at larger huts ourselves, so it provided the perfect opportunity to come up with a solution and we built the first two for them. The Brace Hut offers an alternative for those wishing to have a very special glamping hut, whether as a honeymoon hut, family retreat hut, or as a bridal suite – the options are endless. We’ll be at stand OSA40 throughout the Glamping Show where the Brace Hut will be revealed.
Blackdown Shepherd Huts have seen a recent rise in demand for their bespoke shepherd huts from hotels and those in the hospitality trade for a range of purposes. From honeymoon suites to extra guest bedrooms, catering outlets, intimate dining rooms, spas, and treatments rooms, and even safari lodges, the shepherd hut is fast becoming the new add on for hotel and catering opportunities.
Will adds: ‘The shepherd hut’s year-round appeal means that it makes for a very appealing glamping unit – both from the guest and glamping provider point of view.‘
Something special in the amazing spaces market
Will says: ‘Glamping and interesting short experiences are becoming ever more popular and we are delighted to be at the Glamping Show to share our huts with existing and prospective clients. In recent years, shepherd huts have made a huge impact in the accommodation and amazing spaces market, and at the moment it’s all about luxurious camping in the form of glamping.
‘Shepherd huts provide the perfect place to escape in order to unwind and relax and our huts are specially designed to make the best out of the room they have for a fabulously luxurious experience. Hotels, farms, pubs and campsites are the perfect location for glamping huts to create a unique retreat for people looking for something special.’
Inspired by the traditional shepherd’s huts of yesteryear, Blackdown Shepherd Huts, based in Ilminster in Somerset, create their Heritage, Turnkey, and Towby Huts with the hospitality industry and home leisure lover in mind.
