With the boom in glamping seeing once-basic shepherd’s huts turned into luxury accommodation, Shropshire business Salop Leisure is working with a Mid-Wales manufacturer to sell its new shepherd’s huts to the booming staycation and glamping market.
Salop Leisure has teamed up with Gareth Rowlands, who manufactures the shepherd’s huts in Rhayader, to fill a gap in the market for innovative glamping accommodation.
The shepherd’s huts, which can be used for tourism accommodation, garden offices or garden rooms, were promoted by Salop Leisure at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair in Builth Wells and were very well received.
Salop Leisure’s Innovative Solutions division, headed up by project manager Samantha Stubbs, aims to work with partner companies to maximise the retail opportunities presented by the booming demand for staycation holidays. The timber or corrugated metal clad shepherd’s hut, which comes in a range of sizes, has been designed to offer a variety of accommodation options, with quality and comfort in mind. Each hut is handcrafted using quality materials to achieve a beautiful, authentic look.
The hut has a cosy double bed with storage, a panoramic window, a compact galley kitchen with built-in appliances, a breakfast bar with a feature window and shower room.
