Welcome to Sussex Huts
Sussex Huts is a family-run business, based in the village of Wisborough Green in the West Sussex countryside. We specialise in the design, construction and delivery of handcrafted shepherd’s huts. Our huts are made to order meaning each hut can be whatever you want it to be.
We adopt a simple philosophy; using high-quality materials and skilled craftsmen we produce shepherd huts that not only look great but also last a lifetime.
Handcrafted Shepherd’s Huts
Every Sussex Hut is handcrafted and is built on our signature oak chassis. Our cast iron wheels have been styled on a classic design and we love them so much we even put our name on them. These two materials alone will last a lifetime and will only get better with age.
A softwood framework forms the backbone of our shepherd’s huts, and we expose our hand cut curved rafters to add a little charm, after all that hard work it would be a shame to cover them up.
The steps up into our shepherd’s huts have to cope with a great deal, which is why we use large timbers and a joint known as a ‘tusk tennon’ when making them. This is a centuries old joint that can be tightened simply by driving the wedge.
From design through to delivery we use local skilled craftsmen and women to maintain our high level of finish, and from the interiors and soft furnishings, to the handmade ironwork of the exteriors, every part of our shepherd’s huts is built to last.
