Wriggly Tin Shepherd’s Huts

Shepherd's hut

Luxury vintage camping in traditional shepherd’s huts, tucked away in the heart of the South Downs.

The double doors really let the outside in and make the hut feel incredibly spacious.

Shepherd's hut

Five people can just about squeeze around the table!


The hut is fully equipped for up to five peoplecoffee cups

Boundary is named in homage to the local Hambledon Cricket Club, one of the oldest in the country and deserving of it’s page in this Ladybird book. Real woodpeckers can be heard in the woods surrounding Wriggly Tin.


DIY draw handles. On reflection, I should have used cricket bails! 

Kitchen and dining area, with two cosy single bunks in the corner.

The bedroom. There’s a double bed with a pull-out single bunk above. The double bed can be converted to a single, which leaves more floor space.

Another view of the kitchen and two single bunks. The wood-burning stove is made by the Windy Smithy. These stoves are brilliant, having a large hot plate for cooking and a little oven for roasting, or even baking bread.

Stunningly beautiful. would love to have a little 2 bed cabin with the same old world country decor.
As a family we often holiday in Dorset (I have some brilliant tiny house pics im going to send to tinyhouse blog from my last trip a few weeks ago.)
These look like a brilliant and different option for long weekends for traveling only a little further east.

Among the best uses of space I’ve seen. The over all appearance is wonderful and looking closely at the photos you can see how much thought was put into every aspect of the design/build of the project. The judicious use of color gives the really busy space a sense of clam with so many different functions being concealed behind clever décor. Form, function all wrapped up with charm.

That is the cutest hut I’ve ever seen, we are redoing a moble office over inside and I think we will incorporate some of the beautiful colors and ideas you have. Send more pictures if you can, I love it. That is a real home sweet home!

Wow, best use of space I’ve ever seen! Love the interior colors and design.

I love this. Since I have no children I would change the two singles into a mini bath and add a sink/mini kitchen where the stove is. I wonder what the actual square footage is and what it weighs?

This is a beautiful space. Thank you for the interior photos.

Helen - May 22, 2014 Reply

I think it’s lovely! Love the area it’s in, where is it located?

Bob Ratcliff - May 22, 2014 Reply

As a home designer, I’m always searching for those a whole lot more brilliant than myself. You surpass me by ten miles. You’ve not only made the space VERY usable, but it has SO much charm:) The attention to detail is shown throughout that brings that inner yearn to enjoy it just for the kick of it. You’re SO talented:)

This is such a cute place….I only wish it was mine. Thank you for sharing the pictures.

Wendy - May 22, 2014 Reply

It’s beautiful. My children would have thought they were in heaven to stay in the little bunks. What a great gypsy van!

Looks so cozy!!!

Did anyone see ABC news last night? Had a piece in prime time about Tiny Houses. Great!

    Pam - May 22, 2014 Reply

    I came in the room as it was ending:( I got so excited though. Our Tiny House Movement is catching on, and spreading like Wildfire! We are going into desperate times, and we must all find ways to downsize, and live small. But no one said it can’t be cute and so very cozy, as your bright and cheery Hut is! Well done!

Where can I buy one?

K'Anne Zubin - May 22, 2014 Reply

This would be ideal for me. Love it. So bright and spacious looking. plus efficiently laded out.
I would need to put it on a secure trailer and wheels for the road, I’m thinking.

RHarley - May 22, 2014 Reply

What are the dimensions of the wagon?

    Alex Evans (Wriggly Tin) - May 22, 2014 Reply

    Internal dimensions: The floor area is 14′ x 6’6″. Walls are 6’4″ high. Height to centre of ceiling is 7’5″.

Shelley Noble - May 22, 2014 Reply

The cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Brava!

carrie - May 22, 2014 Reply

Absolutely STUNNING>>> Very jealous!!! I would use the space either above or below the single bed as storage….LOVE the wood stove; a glass panel in the door would make it a 100% Heavenly view.
I bow to your brilliance!!!!

[…] adorable is this tiny cabin? It’s equipped to sleep 5 people, believe it or […]

Mary Berry - May 22, 2014 Reply

I want one just like it. You are VERY clever and have excellent taste!

Having built several tiny houses I am now in the process of finishing the interior of a
Shepherds hut that will be for sale here in Colorado. It great to see some coverage of these huts
because they offer such a unique take on the tiny house movement. It’s clear that this hut has been
very well crafted and will provide a big draw for their ” glamping ” operation. It’s just another
good use for the classic Shepherds hut.

    Bill, please send information on your soon-to-be-for-sale hut…very interested…thanks!

      Bill - May 25, 2014 Reply

      Knuj The interior walls and floor are in but from this point any configuration
      is possible.. even the double bed assembly can be changed or removed. I have
      very basic ad up on craigslist with some simple pictures. you can view it here


      Regards…. Bill

Really cue, but not designed for aging bones, with those bunks. Is there an outhouse or???

Br. Curt Beardsley - May 27, 2014 Reply

What a great interior design! Good use of space, plus, with only two people there is lots of storage room. Not so much if you want to sleep four, though. You’d really have to simplify to the extreme. It can be done, though. Love it!
