Plankbridge Hutmakers has been building and restoring shepherd's huts since 2000 when Owners, Richard Lee and Jane Dennison, discovered an early shepherd's hut near Thomas Hardy's cottage in Dorset. The pair were instantly inspired to bring an old 'Wessex' tradition back to life with the help of Richard's training from John Makepeace's Hooke Park College.

In any expertly-designed garden, the ultimate way to elevate the outdoor living experience to the next level is the addition of a fully functional, super-sleek outdoor kitchen.
