The Rural Guest Retreat

Case Study: The Rural Guest Retreat

We were approached by Ted to design and build a shepherd’s hut that would serve as an idyllic rural guest room with a rustic feel. Sited at the edge of a meadow, surrounded by woodland, there could be no position more perfect for a shepherd’s hut of this style. The remote location where the hut is sited served as inspiration for both the interior and exterior of the build.

Ted was looking for a hut that would blend in with its surroundings, opting for a sage green for the exterior. Inside the hut we built a custom-made double bed, more than triple the height of a normal shepherd’s hut bed, in order to generate the feeling of being high up and cosy that Ted wanted to create. The interior also homes a wood burner and bench-seating, making this the perfect space for guests to come and appreciate the stunning views. Ted wanted to make the most of the location of the hut and has done so by placing a small fire pit outside of the hut, making it the ideal place for an evening picnic and bottle of wine.

What better way for friends and family to spend a cosy weekend away in the country; enjoying time together, relaxing, and appreciating the stars and the surroundings? Find more images in our Guest Retreat Gallery.
