Get Close To Nature With A Shepherd’s Hut

Sometimes in life, you just want to connect with nature in your own personal space, far from the madding crowd. It was this change in people’s attitudes that fuelled the growth of family-run business Riverside Shepherd Huts based close to Redditch on the Worcestershire/Warwickshire border.

Founded over 30 years ago, the company originally began building steel-framed structures including garden centres, sports halls and agricultural buildings.

However, Riverside spotted an increased demand for additional spaces which can be tailored to customers’ needs. The company now focusses on manufacturing small, bespoke “shepherd’s huts” which can be positioned in your own favourite quiet spot.

A Popular Shelter Since The 16th Century

The history of shepherd’s huts goes back to the 16th century and they were particularly popular across the countryside in Victorian times. The cast-iron wheels and arched roofs of huts kept shepherds both mobile and dry in all weathers

Today, Riverside’s fully-insulated huts can be used all year round and come in many different sizes and specifications. As well as bespoke huts, base steel frames and chassis can be supplied, onto which you can add a totally bespoke hut design with your own layout and materials.

Narrow Basins For Compact Spaces

Clickbasin were delighted to be approached by Riverside Shepherd Huts MD Jeannie Richmond to supply smaller wash basins suitable for their huts. The narrow basins  are perfect to create a high-class washing area without taking up too much space. 

Since starting the shepherd huts 10 years ago we found Clickbasin really useful from the beginning. The huts are all bespoke so it’s always the customers who choose their basins and Clickbasin have such a good range to choose from it really does cover most choices.  The basins always arrive well wrapped and protected also a quick delivery time and the staff are always happy to answer any questions.”

Working From Home

The recent Covid-19 situation has resulted in more of us working from home with almost 40% of UK workers working from home at the height of the lockdown (Source: ONS). Many employers believe that this is a trend that will continue well after the pandemic is over. Not surprisingly, Riverside have a hut to cater for this market too – the Office, Workshop or Playroom Hut. An open-plan office or a shepherd’s hut in the garden surrounded by local wildlife?? I’m sure which place I’d prefer to work!
