What is a Shepherds Hut?

Originating in the 16th century, traditional shepherd huts served as mobile shelters for shepherds as they moved across the countryside with their flocks. These compact and practical dwellings provided warmth, security, and a place to rest, with the interiors often featuring a simple stove and a bed.

A Unique Blend of History and Modern Comfort

At The Merry Harriers, we have taken the essence of these humble historical dwellings and transformed them into a luxurious glamping experience. Our modernised Shepherd Huts combine the rustic charm of the original design with contemporary amenities and stylish décor, offering a perfect balance of old-world nostalgia and modern comfort. Our Shepherd Huts offer a unique and unforgettable experience, allowing you to embrace the tranquillity of the countryside while enjoying the comforts of boutique-style accommodation.
