Shepherd's hut buying guide

Richard Lee at shepherd's hut specialists Plankbridge has put together a useful buyer's guide for anybody considering investing in one for work. It covers essentials such as planning permission, the best chassis, interior features, portability when moving house, heating options, eco-friendliness, and longevity.

There's also an interesting look at the numbers of using your shepherd's hut as part of a glamping business. Here's a snippet:

A shepherd’s hut is a great investment and with holiday letting sites such as Canopy and Stars and Airbnb advertising huts for between £100 and £265 a night, even with 50% occupancy at a cautiously low average nightly rate you could generate well over £21,000 a year. Many small scale Glamping businesses achieve 75% occupancy, a good target to aim for, but 75% does need a good setting and all the magic ingredients that guests look for together with a successful marketing strategy. 

Click the link for the full guide which is well worth a read (and always worth it for the fabulous gallery of images on the site).
