Our Shepherd hut - Gypsy caravan measuring in total 2.40 x 5.00m. A really large and imposing garden building. It features metal wheels, axles and H frame. A front porch double gate mounted on two way action sprung hinges and railings with ample room inside for a number of applications.

Most of our customers will add to this structure, lining it, insulating and producing a Garden office, Summerhouse or accommodation either rented for holiday parks or for private use. The pictures really do not do this building justice, it has to be seen to be appreciated.

Our Shepherd hut - Gypsy caravan measuring in total 2.40 x 5.00m. It features metal wheels on a very substantial metal chassis. A front porch gives a relaxing place to sit and is accessed via the steps and through two gates which are mounted on double action sprung hinges. Railings surround the porch area.

Large and spacious room inside the shepherd hut is suitable for a number of applications.

Most of our customers will add to this gypsy wagon, lining it, insulating and producing a Garden office, Summerhouse and more. This is a very large and substantial building and is supplied untreated.

Doors and windows are double glazed.

Use 35mm - 45mm Celotex (or similar) insulation in the walls and rockwool in the roof to create an office or accomodation. Line very cheaply with pine face plywood in the roof or 8mm pine cladding for the walls. Please also see the reviews as other customers who sell these as a business fully made also have some useful advice.

Felt Shingles:

Some customers like to use our felt shingles on this building. These will certainly enhance the roof. BUT, you will require seven packs and you must make sure you have the felt layer underneath. We also recommend the use of Felt shingle Glue when applying shingles.


Supplied untreated to enable you to finish to the standard you require with insulation, panelling, lining, painting etc.

If you require measurements to investigate the possibilities of a traditional tine roof:
  • Width of curve: 2410mm
  • Height: 400mm
  • Roof sheet of 3000mm will give 100mm overhang either side.
Another version of this hut is also available and has doors in the side: Shepherd Hut Deluxe

I found the Tuin shepherds hut good value and well built. I feel the main supporting timbers should be tanalised which they are not..Tuin do not supply a traditional curved corrugated roof system but I did find a company who will make to order, they are Accord Steel cladding Ltd in the West Midlands. It makes all the difference.

The service we have received from the time of order to delivery has been excellent. They have been very quick to respond to any queries we have had and the delivery drivers were most helpful . We are still in the process of building our caravan, but all is going well and it looks to be a sturdy hut, which will complement the ethos of our campsite. I would recommend buying from Tuin to anyone.

Just got to say what an excellent product, had a couple of family weekends treating every piece with a a Barretine wood preservative before assembly , what a great way to work out what and where everything goes before you start assembly,
Paint and read the instructions makes it a light bulb moment when you build,,,,
i found everything to be very robust in manufacture and nothing left wanting, ever screw, bracket, door latch plate and 2 of every driver bit in the kit, just remember to switch your drill in to screwdriver mode and they will last the whole build,

I would not hesitate to buy another Tuin product. The neatly flat packed hut arrived via an excellent delivery service. Good instruction manual but take a while to familiarize yourself with each stage. Helps to organize and label parts before starting construction. Hut was fully erected over 2 bank holiday weekends ready for painting. Great quality product; extremely attractive in the garden. Well worth the money.

I chose this Shepherds hut/gypsy wagon as I had been looking quite a while for something like this. I am most certainly happy that I chose this model from Tuin. The service I received was excellent from ordering the product to the delivery man. Everything happened when it was said it would & the delivery man was really helpful getting it as close to where we needed it placing. The shepherds hut itself is fantastic. This was our lockdown project & it took us quite a while to get it built (just me & my husband). It is excellent quality & I really love this little retreat I have for myself. Just finishing off the painting as this year it is just going to be used as a summer house but next year will probably fit it all out properly. If you are thinking of buying a shepherds hut I would definitely recommend this one & the company.
