Luxury glamping resurrects Cumbrian shepherd huts

It has been an exciting few months for the directors of Fallowfield Projects Ltd, a bespoke joinery manufacturing and fitting company based in Staveley, Cumbria – The Lake District.

Last year they decided to embark in tapping into the luxury glamping industry utilising their high quality joinery skills built up over 2 decades. Along with their partner team Cumbrian Shepherd Huts was born, the name of the operation and the product of course self explanatory. The structures are true to the landscape of the Lake District and true to original Cumbrian shepherd hut design.

These shepherd huts are made entirely in the Lake District using the highest quality materials and all made individually by hand. The glamping industry is now worth millions in the UK with new and alternative locations to enjoy a less backpacking, more 5 star version of camping. In a Fallowfield Joinery shepherd hut, kitting it out is the choice of the purchaser with options such as wood burning stoves to handmade tables, bookcases and wooden shutters. These huts are bespoke glamping of the highest proportion and for businesses, will provide a ROI extremely quickly.

We’re all loving the fact we can have a short break or a holiday is the true outdoors making the most of the beaten track locations whilst not giving up practicality, luxury surroundings and without the need to put up tents, being affected by bad weather or having to cart around a articulated truck load of gear. But accommodation such as gypsy caravans and shepherd’s huts with their quirky and funky looks and interiors have become extremely popular.

For farmers with land needing to diversify to campsite and bed & breakfast owners looking to add alternative form of accommodation to their bow and even those who want the ultimate summer house structure at the bottom of their garden, these kitsch, warm and welcoming solid roofed dwellings are bang on trend now. They have also proved popular for accommodation owners looking to tap into the dog friendly market but when their main business premises cannot accommodate or it is not practical.
