Shedcation: Go on holiday in a shed

As part of the launch of the 2016 Shed of the Year competition, Cuprinol and Airbnb are working together to offer a range of holiday accommodation which is entirely shed-based. Indeed, a poll which is part of the campaign suggests two thirds of people would prefer to holiday in a shed rather than a cottage, caravan or tent.

A special 'shed wishlist’, put together by Uncle Wilco, founder of Shed of the Year, is made up of previous Shed of the Year finalists as well as new hopefuls taking part in this year’s competition.

The shedcation possibilities include the repurposed ‘Corrugated Cottage’ which dates back to 1940 and was originally built for WWII land girls, and the ‘Boatel’, a shed created out of an upcycled boat. Pictured above is the 'Maid of Dekkin' and below is the 'Pool House'.

"Each year the competition seeks to crown the most amazing sheds from across the country and it seems the nation’s love of sheds is stronger than ever," said Uncle Wilco. "We’ve already seen a massive influx of entries into this year’s competition, spanning everything from those inspired by the architectural conquests of Grand Designs to the wacky and wonderful hand crafted creations."
The Shed of the Year competition for 2016 is open for registration. To register your shed and take part, visit
